Servers were great and very friendly. The food was top notch. We had breakfast and dinners included and stayed here for our honeymoon. One waitress was so nice she packed us a breakfast to go and hugged us the morning we left!

We loved everything we ate! Breakfast or dinner, you were guaranteed to eat really fresh and ridiculously delicious food. I loooved all the fresh juices! Be aware they do not serve any beef. Only fish or chicken. Not a deal breaker for us but just a heads up.

We stayed 8 nights at the resort and had every meal at the restaurant. Plenty of choices, even for vegans.

The restaurant overlooks the ocean so the setting is amazing. The food options are quite healthy and do not include beef or pork. We really liked the local food options, labeled 'ty[ico'. All of our meals were very well prepared and there was plenty of variety for the whole family for 5 days. What made the experience even better was... More

Beautiful, clean resort. Nice people, quiet, great food. My boyfriend and I loved it. The hotel took care of all our needs. We stayed in a bungalow on the beach fell asleep to the ocean waves. Beautiful.

Ylang-Ylang is nice located by the beach something like 700 hundred meters from the heart of Montezuma. Ylang-Ylang is a neat place but you can't escape the resort feeling. It's expensive so we were looking forward to have something out of the ordinary to lunch, but the meals we had didn't meet our expectations. They weren't bad, but they weren't... More

The day time beach security realized I was having a medical problem as I passed him. I spoke little Spanish and he spoke little English, but he was able to figure out I needed water. He called someone on his radio, and the manager & another employee came with a medical bag. The manager took me back to my hotel... More
