My daughters and I spent a wonderful week at Ylang Ylang in April, 2015. The setting for the hotel is beautiful with the ocean on one side and the tropical forest on the other. We felt like we were a part of the nature around us. The entire staff at Ylang Ylang was so welcoming and helpful. They went out... More

We stayed 3 nights in a beach front bungalow at Ylang Ylang and breakfasts and dinners were included in the price of the room. As Ylang Ylang is located about a 15 minute walk up the beach from Playa Montezuma, we found this to be a very convenient arrangement. The food was what we would call eclectic in that there... More

Thank you for the fourth year in a row for the most incredible experience! We thought perhaps we should travel a bit more this year and extend our stay. We started the trip in Santa Teresa and by the time we arrived at Ylang Ylang Beach Resort knew we arrived back to paradise. The water, theft, and peaceful atmosphere was... More

Excellent,wholesome food and service! Appears to caters to Americans as all prices at the restaurant and resort were listed in $USD. You can only get there by walking about 1 mile along a dirt road/beach. Take your time headed in enjoying the waking wildlife and on the way back stop by the ASVO turtle conservatory (Association of Volunteers for service... More

This restaurant is worth the trip. The energy smoothie drinks are great and the food is beyond exceptional. We had fish tacos and the chicken wrap. The organic and house made goodies are to die for. the only complaint I would have is that this restaurant is not car accessible. You will need to walk through town, onto the beach... More

We chose this resort because of the Vegan menu.....they did not disappoint! Delicious healthy breakfasts and dinners with many choices and perfect portions. The wait staff was wonderful and greeted us each meal with a smile. On a tour of the property with the owner, we realized how some of the ingredients come from their own harvest (coconuts, etc) and... More
