We feel the Ylang Ylang is a near perfect tropical vacation. If I was going on a honeymoon, this is where I would want to go. I find it to be one of the most beautiful, idyllic places on earth Their beach is one of true beauty and solace.
This is my 3rd time back and I can't get enough. The Ylang Ylang team treat us like family, the food is amazing (try the Coco Berry Shake!!!), and you get to see all kinds of wildlife right on the resort grounds! Patricia, Darren, and the rest of the team are super fun, sweet, and have the biggest hearts! Thank you for another amazing time! ❤️ Scott and Lisa❤️
My husband and I live within an hour of Ylang Ylang but the beautiful grounds and location on the beach enticed us to spend a few days there as a little getaway. We were so happy we did. We rented one of the great beach bungalows and enjoyed the sight and sound of the ocean. The food was great and included in the price so we didn’t need to carry any money around. The grounds are beautiful with mature native trees and plants and lots of wildlife. We watched a tiny turtle make its way from its nest to the water, right on the beach in front of our bungalow! We had Capuchin monkeys entertain us while we sat on the patio in front of the bungalow. The employees are all very nice and greet you like family members. When we left we decided to come again very soon.
We rented the beachfront bungalow and it was amazing, everything was very clean, they followed all covid-19 protocols, the place is amazing, great views, very nice gardens, amazing experience overal. The food is great!!
Pandemic times require local Travel. My wife and I are Costaricans who live in Costa Rica but we usually take Cruise Vacations sailing from Miami because all inclusive hotel fares used to be very expensive in our own country. But in the absence of international visitors, most Costarican hotels have offered better prices to attract local tourists, somewhere between 30% and 50% off. That gave us the opportunity to visit this beautiful resort, which is something we’ve never seen before. Every Bongalow, walk path, restaurant, office, etc, was built as part of this exotic jungle, respecting every inch of nature, almost as if the resort was part of the jungle. And 5 steps away ... The Beach ! We saw tall trees, vegetation, colors and the sound of animals very close which sometimes showed up at the pool, walk paths, trees. I’m not a biologist but It was like being in the movie Avatar where you see unusual variation of species. The staff have been wonderful, always making sure that you are comfortable and taking care of all your needs. Always going the extra step to make your stay special. This place is a paradise for nature lovers and the food is great !! If you only like to be in first class accommodations, this is more like clean, comfortable and ecological ... but not fancy style. Best Regards …
