The setting is lovely and the food is solid and what you'd expect from a resort. The ocean view and tropical drinks were great.

Well worth it, had a lunch and served by friendly staff on the lawns a few steps from the beach nice grounds decor and bar. Can only be reached from the beach so no cars, bikes or atv's.

Went here during our stay at the hotel. Breakfast was not great and service in the mornings was slow. Lunch and dinner meals were all great. Tasty and large portions. The home made juices/shakes are really good. We ordered one Mojito, this was the first and last, it tasted nothing but lime juice.

We had the most amazing meals here. I can't really say anything differently than the other reviewers. Go to this restaurant and stay at their hotel! You won't be disappointed.

I had never seen starfruit before and when I asked her if it was edible, she said yes and brought a... More

Ylang Ylang New Years celebration is about perfect. Probably the best new years entertainment on the Nicoya peninsula if you like live music, fire works, a good tasting buffet with super good fish and chicken and a romantic setting worth a scene in a Bond movie. The family owned Ylang Ylang also have managed to shape the bungalows and probably... More

We ate here while staying at the Ylang Ylang. I loved the traditional Costa Rican dishes and the expresso tiramisu crepe!
