On our first trip to Costa Rica, my husband and I wanted to stay someplace that was on the beach, away from the hustle and bustle, so that we could relax in the sun and view the natural beauty and wildlife of this country. We found our tropical paradise and it is called Ylang Ylang. We stayed 5 nights and could not have been happier with our choice of accomodations.
The resort itself is beautiful. The grounds are expansive and lush, and each of the bungalows is private, spaced well away from the others. Some are almost hidden from view. We stayed in Dome 6 and loved its location. We enjoyed sitting on our balcony each afternoon and watching the birds, iguanas, and monkeys. Every day we were visited by a family of capuchins that played and rested behind our bungalow. We were able to snap some great photos.
At home I sometimes have trouble sleeping, as does my husband. But here we both slept soundly. The bed was comfortable, and the sound of the sea lulled us to sleep.
We thought the meals were superb, especially the dinner selections. We always were surprised by the unique flavor combinations. And the wait staff were so friendly, courteous, and professional. Christian, Andre, and Harold are especially good.
The location of the resort makes it very peaceful, yet it is also quite convenient to town as it takes only 5 minutes to walk there. The village of Montezuma is quaint, but has a pretty beach and a few nice shops and places to eat. And although the beach at Ylang Ylang is small, it is beautiful. You can easily walk northward along several other scenic beaches as well.
In summary, Ylang Ylang is a fabulous place to stay providing comfort, relaxation, and serenity. We did not want to leave, and we most definitely will be back some day.
