We have just returned from a wonderful family trip to Costa Rica's Pacific coast and the Ylang Ylang Beach Resort. I can't say enough about the people at this resort and the area in general. From the moment we met our driver Edwardo at Liberia airport to everyone that we encountered during our many excursions. Our long 4 1/2 hour drive from the airport at first seamed daunting but the scenic drive and the stops along the way to see the wildlife made it an adventure. Ylang Ylang was fantastic. Directly on the ocean front but nestled within the jungle just enough to give you a real feeling of privacy. The Drinks were great and the food is amazing. The staff here as I said before really stand out. Always making sure that our stay was enjoyable. The restaurant setting overlooks the ocean beach and was beautiful night and day. My wife two adult daughters and myself were in one of the three family suites which are located and the far end of the resort. There was plenty of room with two queen beds on the main level and a king bed in the loft. The only issue is that if the people who are next door decide to stay up and talk you can hear almost everything they say. This turned out not to be an issue as our neighbors must have been as tired as we were after the long day of activities and didn't talk for very long. If you are looking to lay on the beach and tan and then wade into the water and do nothing else then I would suggest going somewhere else. There is a really nice secluded beach about a 20 minute walk called "Playa Grande". The walk is not to difficult and very scenic with jungle and rocky beaches along the way. You can even venture up a stream to a small waterfall and sit under it as the water massages your troubles away. We booked four tours directly from the resort front desk. Tortuga Island, Zip line canopy tour, Horse riding and "Curu" wildlife refuge. All were fantastic and very reasonable. If you are looking for adventure, fantastic food, wonderful people, and the beautiful surroundings of the jungle then go to Ylang Ylang you won't regret it. " Pura Vida "
