We stayed at the Ylang Ylang for 4 nights and it is absolutely fabulous in every way. The location, food, rooms and staff are all wonderful. The website pictures do not do it justice. This place is amazing. The only advice I would give is that if you are looking for the conventional location thats easy to get to with lots of activities, this is not your place. To get to the hotel, you need to take a jeep over the beach and getting to and from your car requires a 15 minute walk down the beach. You can't beat the location, though, as it is absolutely beautiful and quiet. Keep in mind that you should not go there for the activities. They are fair compared to other places in Costa Rica. The snorkeling trip to Tortuga Island was fun, but don't plan on the best snorkeling. We did not see a thing. Swimming on the island and the boat ride was fun. The horses were okay but not a wow. Some of the other guests enjoyed the canopy zip line. We had 2 teenagers and so I was concerned about the food. We all LOVED the food and the service. The pool is lovely. The spa is delightful. And, don't miss the Sana Banano Restaurant in town. This resort is a treasure.
