We opted to spend more and stay in one of the beach front bungalows. WORTH IT!! The "Dome" we stayed in was secluded, a few yards up from the beach and tucked into the jungle. Each Dome has a/c (needed when taking a break from the heat and humidity), a fabulous bathroom with an endless supply of delicious smelling ylang ylang shampoo, shower gel and conditioner, hairdryer, an in room safe, fridge, ceiling fan, decent sized patio with view, and a private outdoor shower for washing off saltwater and sand. They also provide you with free wifi and U.S. electrical outlets so no need for adapters. Forget clocks, television and in room telephone, because thankfully there are none! Bring an appetite for some of the most delicious food you will ever eat, consistently meal after meal (breakfast and dinner is included). Highly recommend the stuffed Mahi Mahi and the Fresh Catch of The Day. They also have an extensive raw live vegan menu and loads of sushi. The hotel is remote and there is no real road to get to it. When you arrive to town they pick you up in an off roading Land Rover. The walk to/from town is about 15 minutes (in sand) so leave sexy strappy heeled shoes at home!! If you are staying at the hotel when they offer a garden tour with the owner, Patricia, take it! A lovely hour spent combing the grounds learning about Costa Rica, the plants, the animals, ylang ylang and how it all began. If your lucky and fruit is on the trees, she will happily cut it for sampling. Our tour was a Friday around 4:30pm. I can't say enough wonderful things about Ylang Ylang and what they stand for. Health, beauty, wellness, love and happiness. If you make the trip to montezuma, pony up the few extra bucks and stay here, it's worth every penny. Quite the hidden paradise. And yes, there are ylang ylang trees if you were wondering! A+ and we will definitely make the trip again and again.
