Four of us came here after a cruise thru the Panama Canal. While that was relaxing enough we had no real beach time before heading back to cold weather. The Ylang Ylang Beach Resort filled the bill. Beautiful long, white, sandy beach with water warm enough you can spend the day in it. If the beach is not your thing, the pool area is very pleasant with plenty of reclining lounge chairs. The resort property is lovely with beautiful trees and flowering shrubs everywhere. We stayed in one of the Domes facing the Pacific. Even felt safe enough to leave the sliders open a bit (but not too much or you might have some monkey visitors) so we could hear the ocean at night. Nice comfortable bed, lots of fresh, fluffy towels and a big shower with plenty of soaps and shampoos. Hairdryer & coffee maker too. The restaurant had fabulous meals off a menu or order a delicious, freshly caught fish. All served by a very friendly and helpful staff. They also have a nice gift shop that carries unique local jewelry and gift items along with tee-shirts, hats and some of their fabulous Costa Rican coffee. Take a 20 minute stroll along the beach (bring shoes or flops for HOT sand) to the town. Or you could walk to town along the road above the beach if you need some shade. Either way, the town's a fun place to visit. There's a number of shops and some good places to have tacos or a burger and toss back a few cervezas. All in all a really fine place to spend some time.....I hope to return someday.
