Doesn’t get any better. We basically had a private resort. Beach a short walk. The owner will give you the best information on surfing food etc. FYI the dinner is great and worth every penny. No reason to go eat dinner anywhere else. The provided breakfast is also top notch. Next trip we will plan a week here. This is a hidden gem.
Wonder views- An experience to get there. - Fantastic food music and monkeys Loved it. Every cottage has something different-A wonderful getaway from a hectic life. Great side trips. The owners can handle anything you would want to do.
after a long day driving on the Costa Rica roads, we arrived in this little paradise. The room are just exceptional, we stayed enjoying the view on the ocean each sunset The restaurant is excellent and the service is just perfect, the owner loves what he does and you can feel this. Perfectly located to visit the area Ocean is about 20 min walking....it s almost a private beach ;-)
I find reviewing eco lodges very difficult. So much of what you experience varies by what you expect or can tolerate. The drive into Ylang Ylang is rough, so you need to be confident doing a bit of gravel road and steep hills. We had a large 4x4 so there was no issue. It's also quite tucked away so I would advise satnav - google worked fine. There are several beautifully built lodges all with amazing views, and a large reception and restaurant lodge by the excellent pool. The lodges are on two levels, which means you make the most of those views, but are far from insect proof - hence my comment at the beginning. When we went to bed we were surprised (and entertained) to find that three of the local vampire bats also called our lodge home, and flew harmlessly around for a couple of minutes before crawling out of the top of the balcony door. The advice of the management is to leave these doors open to allow the bats free access at night. Being Costa Rica there was also a fair number of Howler Monkeys around which provided a suitably jungly soundtrack through the hours of darkness. There is a chef on site who cooks a varying set meal each evening, and our's was excellent, with fresh sea bass straight from the fishing boat. You can also self-cater after a fashion as each lodge has a sink and fridge. So - the lodge is excellent if you don't mind the wildlife, but some people may be challenged to the point of sleepless nights.…
Very good stay in a lovely place, very ecologic, nice view, too short stay but many plaçe to visit around. The owner is great, knowing all places, he is french :) so all good informations to stay and visit around this lovely lodge.
