“Magical”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

We were a family of 4, with 2 very young children, on a budget trip to CR, but wanted to splurge ourselves with a fancy dinner, and so we walked with our kids on our backs (in carriers) the 30 mins to this resort. We were not disappointed, the food was delicious and the whole experience was very magical with the surroundings of the ocean and the candles. Even though we had young children they didn't make us feel we were unwelcome and even let us use the hotel showers (we were covered in sand pretty much..) and moreover, they actually gave us a ride with the hotel jeep to town, which saved us from walking back in the the dark.

“The best food in Montezuma!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

I was not let down by a single meal during a recent five night stay at Ylang Ylang. From the delicious breakfasts (plenty of sweet and savory options!) to the extensive dinner menu, look no further than the YY restaurant for a meal if you're staying in Montezuma. The beach front views are beautiful and the wait staff is highly knowledgeable and extremely friendly, which only added to our dining experience.

Highly recommend the Huevos Rancheros or Tipico for breakfast - YUM!

“Great Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

Amazing food- taste, presentation, and quantity. Some of the best food I've had at any resort and I tried the chicken, steak, tuna, and mahi-mahi among others. Highly recommended!

“The Best Food in Montezuma”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

If you're eating in Montezuma, look no further than Ylang Ylang resturant. A short 10 minute walk on the beach from downtown will provide you with ocean front views and shaded patio dining. The menu is expansive, fresh and healthy with a bounty of vegetarian options. From Latin-American food to sushi to traditional Costa Rican food, fresh salads, wraps and juices you can find all of the local flavor of organic fruits and vegetables in each dish. The service staff is great and the cocktails are amazing as well!
