5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2005

My husband and 2 daughters stayed at the Ylang Ylang for 2 nights. The first impression is of a tropical garden paradise set on the beach. You reach your room by walking exquisite paths lined by exotic trees, flowering bushes, plants and vines, scattered with lights and the occasional sound of a monkey, bird or coati rustling in the foliage. If you like a beach with character--trees lining the beach,rocky outcroppings, great horizon--this place is it! Nicest beach in the area. It's a walk to town, but not too bad--just bring a flashlight. Really nice walk on the far side of the resort, too, through forest and beach. Breakfast was great, (and included in price) and smoothies fantastic (try their iced tea). Staff were pleasant. We stayed in a 2-story jungle suite and it was perfect for us, with a fridge and lovely patio balcony.
