Great food in a fabulous location!

The menu has many interesting choices and we were pleased with everything we tried. Wonderful service, the food was pleasantly presented, and the view was fabulous. I only wish we could have stayed longer so I could have tried all the items on the menu.

My girl and I stayed at Ylang Ylang (which was overall Amazing) and we assumed since breakfast and dinner were included with our room, the food would be just "ok". Well we were very pleasantly surprised as the food was very good. There are not a lot of places in Costa Rica that offer food this great, especially in the... More

Ylang Ylang is probably the fanciest restaurant in Montezuma, but still suitable for families. It's outside of the town with a bit of a walk along the beach to get there. The service was great. They have a vegan menu with many delicious choices! Beautiful view of the ocean from the restaurant.

We stayed at Ylang Ylang resort. Breakfast and dinner were included, however, other people can make reservations and dine there as well. Every thing we tried on the menu was wonderful!. There wasn't one item I wouldn't order again. This restaurant strives to serve healthy organic foods and even has quite a few vegetarian and vegan dishes. The one thing... More

Excellent Service where you'll recognize some of the employees on the trail, north of Montezuma. Great place to eat with a view of the beach & ocean. Food was included with stay at resort (breakfast & dinner). However, there were days (after a long walk) stopped in & had one of their delicious sandwiches, & a cool down shake (different... More

If your not staying at Ylang Ylang make it a point to take a yoga class, or 2 or 3 - They also have a great lunch that you can enjoy right by the water

After reading the positive reviews on Trip Advisor, my boyfriend and I decided to check this place out. Although a few signs advertising Ylang Ylang are posted throughout Montezuma, we weren't exactly sure how to get there. We checked with the Sano Banano restaurant which advertises shuttles to Ylang Ylang, however, being low season, no shuttle was running. Hubert, a... More
