We spent a couple of days in this beautiful resort in the middle of the jungle. The Food and Staff were first class. Wonderful place to relax.

Well if you want to feel what luxury is i guess it would be the place , the view is your typical resort on the beach type . You wouldn't know if you're in Costa Rica or anywhere else . This place felt soulless but i guess it's probably what sheltering yourself the real world feels like . If you're... More

The bar area is in a beautiful setting, the service impeccable and the one delicious appetizer we had was very good. This is an upscale resort (one of a kind for this area) and if I go back I would definitely try a full dinner.

The menu offers something for everyone and is quite extensive. The food is prepared to order and mostly made of organically grown products. You can taste how much care goes into the preparation and presentation. The restaurant staff is most welcoming and friendly. The "romantic dinner" (having dinner on the beach lite by tiki torches with special attention given to... More

i ate here once, and it was good. i didn't think the quality to price ratio was appropriate, as the prices are geared toward the north american tourists. if you want awesome food, you can stay in town and avoid the long walk and get a better immersion experience.

The restaurant at Ylang Ylang Beach Resort has a great menu based on very fresh ingredients and mostly organic foods, with lots of variety. The service is excellent and the kitchen is very fast. The oceanside location, views, and sound of waves crashing makes the experience enchanting.

We decided to visit Ylang Ylang for a relaxing lunch on our last day in Montezuma and were not disappointed. After walking up the beach from the town we asked if we could use the swimming pool before lunch and, once reception had checked with the manager, were told that this was not a problem and provided with towels.
