During our stay at Ylang Ylang Beach Resort, we had the pleasure of dining at the restaurant on a regular basis. First and foremost, I LOVE going somewhere where there is an actual vegan and raw menu! It's so refreshing! The open-air setting is another part of what makes this restaurant so magical! It's awesome to sit and eat a... More

food was very good not excellent. limited options to choose from and rather small portions. If you get anything beyond what is included in the vacation package, cost is unreasonably expensive (e.g., $ 8-10 for a normal dessert)

combine the perfect location with goos service and great cuisine and you have arguably the nicest restaurant in Montezuma. Good variety on the menu and everything we ordered was appetizing and delicious, including the refreshing fruit drinks...certainly a destination for special occasions or just because you want to spoil yourself...enjoy!

The menu offers a wide variety of choices. We tried different items during our 5 day stay and were never disappointed. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The setting overlooking the sea was perfect.

Great seafood and vegetarian and vegan options on the menu. Incredible setting. Gracious service. Dinner and breakfast are included with the stay at the Ylang Ylang resort. Very romantic options available, also great cocktails and wine list.

I've had 10 meals at this restaurant during my 4-day stay, and every meal has met or exceeded expectations. The fish entrees at dinner are phenomenal, and make this place a must for foodies. The wait staff is extremely friendly, and the restaurant is situated next to the beach, for an overall beautiful dining experience.

First, this place is really difficult to get to. What was billed as "just past where the beach begins" ended up with us getting our car stuck in the sand for about 20 minutes and then having to walk 10 minutes beyond that. The place is nice, and aims at the sort of all-inclusive resort vibe that I go to... More

Dear Roboticarm, Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant. Seeing as you’ve been to Montezuma quite a few times, you should have known that you cannot drive to Ylang Ylang. There are also signs on the road indicating that you cannot drive on the beach and that getting stuck is at your own risk. We are also... More

Ylang Ylang is a Luxury lifestyle restaurant and hotel on the beach in Paradise with an offering for the most sophisticated travelers available year round. A short walk along the beach after you leave the quaint town of Montezuma you will get to this amazing place where friendly people treat you royaly, 5/5
