My wife & I began our 11-night Costa Rica honeymoon with a 4-night stay at Ylang Ylang. We could not have dreamed of a better start to our trip. Fresh off the wedding, we were physically, mentally, and emotionally exhausted. Ylang Ylang was the perfect place to relax, decompress, and unplug. Upon our arrival, we were greeted with a refreshing/chilled passion fruit drink, and escorted to our bungalow. On the way we saw 2 monkeys cleaning one another in the trees!! Delightful first impression!
Truly one of the highlights of the resort is the dining experience. Both breakfast & dinner are included. Not only was this some of the best food we tasted in Costa Rica, but the overall presentation of the entrees was extraordinary! You almost feel guilty sticking a fork in it. It's just so beautiful! Rafael was by far our favorite server. He is as good as it gets. First class all the way!
For activities in Montezuma, we hiked to a nearby waterfall, went horseback riding on the beach, rented an ATV for 1/2 a day, and took a Yoga class. We arranged each of these through the front desk. If you're looking for adventure, I would absolutely recommend renting an ATV for an afternoon. My wife and I drove over to Santa Teresa (approx 40-45 mins). It was nice to experience the Mal Pais/Santa Teresa beaches for a day. They're absolutely gorgeous!
Montezuma is a small coastal town. During our 4-night stay, we were able to see many (all) of the other hotels in the area. Ylang Ylang is clearly THE BEST. There isn't a close second. Spend the extra money & stay here... it will be an experience you'll never forget!
