The week we spent at Ylang Ylang was most memorable and we recommend it with enthusiasm. The guest rooms are set in the forest just up the beach from the ocean and you wake to the sound of tropical birds. Monkeys, lizards and birds abound. The dining room is outdoors and adds a gentle breeze and a view of the beach to wonderful meals. Our family has vegans and non-vegans and everyone was pleased with the variety and quality of the meals. The service in the dining room was gracious and friendly as is the service at the front desk. Relax the day away at the beach or book excursions (nature hikes, canopy tours, surfing, etc.) at the front desk and explore the Nicoya peninsula. There are many nature paths you can explore on your own as well. We want to go back and stay at Ylang Ylang again!

Spent a wonderfully relaxing afternoon/night/morning here: the spa services were superior, and having them administered in a tent on the mountainside certainly adds a level of relaxation. The Garden Bungalow was spacious, well-appointed (small fridge for beverages, snacks), with a lovely big deck, all quite private. I had the pool pretty much to myself, and enjoyed both breakfast and dinner. All the staff very helpful.

Room Tip: The Garden Bungalows feel very secluded although just steps from the main path, pool, etc. Breezy and green.

My husband and I had a wonderful, relaxing 6 days at the Ylang Ylang Beach Resort.
The people working there and the guests were all lovely, and incredibly personable.
One of my favorite moments of the day was the first sip of passionfruit juice in the morning.
Every moment in our room was divine, since we could hear the waves even when the windows were closed. The massages were great, the location was great, the monkeys were great, the food was excellent. Dreamy. I recommend it most highly.

We stayed here for five nights/four days as part of our honeymoon. We enjoyed it, but might not have been prepared for how rustic it is. The common areas--pool, restaurant, paths--were wonderful in every way. We spent plenty of time dipping in the pool and reading in the nearby shade. Monkeys swung above us all the while and the constant sound of the ocean was lovely. The service at the restaurant was wonderful and I do not think you could possibly have a better view from the tables. And the ocean was at our doorstep.

The food ranged. Anything tuna or fruit was amazing. The sushi was near inedible. The rest fell in between. But we generally enjoyed each meal, in particular because of the wonderful staff.

The only complaint we had was that the room was a bit spartan. Though the deck on our Garden Bungalow was a great place to relax during the day, at night it was poorly lit and there was nothing in the room but a bed and a bathroom. Coupled with a lack of any other common area, once dinner was over, it was hard to stay occupied.

Given the chance, though, I would love the opportunity to visit again.

My husband and I spent 3 nights at the Ylang Ylang on our Honeymoon and we fell completely in love with the place! We got the honeymoon package which included a moonlight dinner on the beach which was amazing. The food here is so good an breakfast and dinner was included in our package. The staff was so nice and always helpful, our room was impeccably clean at all times there was nothing not to like!
If I could move into the Ylang Ylang I would in a heartbeat!!
Don't miss out on this amazing treat in quiet Montezuma paradise!
