We went to Costa Rica for our honeymoon and this was our best stop. We stated at the beach bungalow for two nights...a little pricy but worth every penny. The beach is beautiful, it was quiet and clean, everyone was ridiculously nice and helpful (Eric, Geoffrey, Christine, Rafael, and Esteban...the fact that I remember their names shows how awesome they...

An absolute amazing place to end our trip in Costa Rica. We were there with the kids and we all had an amazing time. The staff was very friendly and made you feel at home. The rooms were great, the view from our room was fantastic and the sounds of the waves made you feel more then relaxed. It was... More

Ilan Ilan is a small, natures friendly place, it is where you really can relax, go for a hike, visit others places in the area, good food, friendly staff, no TV and no Telephone in your rooms wich for me is a plus. Highly recommend!

We were there March 23 - 27th. We'd spent 7 days in other areas of beautiful C.R. but Montezuma and Ylang Ylang for us was the highlight. This hotel is located in a beautiful location on a lush tropical beach, the place has a nice laid back vibe. We loved this place, our room was located off the beach in... More

What can I add that hasn't already been written about this amazing resort? Ylang Ylang was the perfect place for our honeymoon, and my husband and I left already imagining coming back for our 5 year anniversary. Do yourself a favor and book this place! We stayed in Beach Dome 1, which was a beautiful free standing bungalow (bedroom and... More

this was perfect for a quite, contained, gorgeous, restorative (mind/body meld), contemplative journey. We were there with my 86 year old mom, she loved the kindness and ease, as well as the relative challenge of the walks to room to dining, and my daughter 15, she would have like a bit more access to town and excitement, but now that...

We arrived in San Juan and took the Nature Air flight to Tambur airport. The driver was waiting for us at the airstrip and took us directly to the resort. It took about 40 minutes and we loved the driver Eduardo who, as it turned out, was also an incredible guide on our tour of Curu Wildlife Refuge. He had... More

We spent 5 days at ylang ylang beach resort in one of the beachfront tents. It was as if we were sleeping in the jungle. We awoke each morning to the sound of the Howler Monkey and the most beautiful birdsong. High points were the massage my partner and I had, the exceptionally good food served in the restaurant by...

My wife and I just returned from a week at Ylang Ylang for our honeymoon. We both agree that Ylang Ylang provides the most perfect experience of 'paradise' one could ask for. The resort is small and intimate so the staff all know your name and you know their names (if you take a minute to remember and interact with... More

we stayed in the half tent and loved hearing the waves from the ocean and feeling the lovely breeze. the most 'outdoors' we could be and sheltered in a cozy nook. bathroom was just outside the bedroom so separate yet right there!
