My husband and I visited Ylang Ylang for a weekend trip from Escazu. We took the ferry across, and were able to get there in about 3.5 hours total time from San Jose. The hotel is impeccably designed. The lush gardens, monkeys above, and beautiful pool are amazing. The beach itself is one of our favorites in the whole country. The included dinner and breakfast were both outstanding. My husband had the red snapper and tuna, and I had the shrimp kebabs and a chicken dish. All were delicious. Our server Harold was wonderful, and eager to talk to us about things to do in the area. The on site yoga was very nice, loved staring out into the beautiful ocean! The front desk people could have been slightly nicer. On our check out day, we asked if we could sit with our luggage by the pool until we were ready to leave and then have the car take us into town to our car. We were told if we wanted a ride we would have to leave at 11, otherwise they would take our luggage for us and we would have to walk into town later. The walk isn't bad, but when it's 99 degrees out and you are about to sit in a car for a few hours we didn't want to be all sweaty. We didn't really appreciate that. Also, we were in the second floor of the beach house, and had no hot water when showering. Considering the price of this place, we were highly disappointed in this.
