Our stay at Ylang Ylang was totally perfect, and this included the meals. We each had a different (included) breakfast with endless coffee each morning and a different (included) dinner each night. We also had the good luck to be there on Christmas, when they had an epic buffet, live music, and bonfire. This was one of the highlights of... More

We spent a weekend at Yllang Yllang while we enjoyed our first visit to Montezuma. We stayed in one of the tent cabins, which was amazing. The king size bed was super comfy, and the screen windows let in a lovely breeze. We also enjoyed drinks on our little wooden deck overlooking the pretty garden and the ocean beyond. We... More

You literally cannot get much closer to the beach. We went for happy hour. Enjoyed drinks, the mango-papaya colada stood out. Tapas we enjoyed were olives, chicken strips, and especially the spicy shrimp.

Nestled between dense rain forest and a secluded beach front, Ylang Ylang's location and views are well documented on any CR travel site. So for the purpose of brevity I'll skip that element of the dining experience. Having visited the area a number of times, I would say without hesitation that Ylang Ylang's restaurant is second to none. For lunch... More

I've never had complaints, even travelling during high volume season. Healthy and lots of great choices. In my opinion, prices are totally fair given the remote location and the freshness of food.

We came to the restaurant often as we were staying in the resort and the rate included both breakfast and dinner. The food was simply delicious - as were the drinks - and the staff is so friendly and professional. We also spent NYE here and it was an unexpectedly pleasant evening, with delicious food (yet again!), nice entertainment and... More

Mediocre service and food for the price point. Coffee is terrible, which is surprising. Not worth the money or trip.

Dear Katherine, We would like to apologize for any disappointment in the restaurant. We were surprised to read this however, because we asked the restaurant staff about your experience and they said you were very happy and came for happy hour to have two drinks each night before enjoying your dinner. We do wish you had asked to speak with... More

No zen gongs, nobody pushing anything, just a mellow, kind, joyful spot where jungle meets beach and even the monkeys are obviously having fun. Plenty to do or do nothing. Guests from all over the world, all at ease, kids dancing on the lawn. Couldn't ask for sweeter staff. Intimate and so lovely!
