While my husband and I opted to stay in the more primitive tent cabins, it didn't feel like it at this lovely beach oasis. From the moment that David picked us up in town with a giant smile and warm welcome, we knew that we were in for a treat. Most of the staff were extremely friendly, going above and beyond what we expected. The grounds are beautiful, with just a stones throw to the beach. The beach is clean and uncrowded, and we spent a whole day in the ocean's warm waters. Definitely get a spa treatment while there- my deep tissue message was absolutely blissful! The pool area is relaxing and tropical. It was extremely convenient to have the restaurant on the premises, and we ate breakfast and dinner there everyday. The food was amazing! I would have liked to know up front that my selection of beverage on my first day was $12 each, as I was quite surprised at our first night's bill! In addition, we noticed that there were some people on the resort, using its facilities, but not actually staying there. We were approached by someone who we thought was also staying there, only to find out that he was camping on the beach but needed to shower. However, there are security guards that cover the area 24/7- it is just hard for them to determine who is staying there, versus who is a patron using the restaurant, versus who is squatting. Overall, we had an amazing stay at Ylang Ylang and would highly recommend it to anyone interested in a few days of R&R! From what we saw of the other options in Montezuma, Ylang Ylang far surpasses any of them, and it is far away from the dusty roads, but only a short walk to town.
