Ylang Ylang provided such a beautiful backdrop to our stay in Costa Rica. The staff went out of their way to make sure everyone had a great experience at the recent wedding I attended there. It was so great to be at a resort that was actually part of the natural environment instead of interfering with it. Food was delicious...

Where do I start?! The setting is like a movie, paradise. Meticulous landscape, unparalleled beauty. The staff at the resort are so helpful and friendly. Finally, the food... Incredible, spectacular. Fresh local fruits, vegetables, fish, homemade breads. I loved the experience.

We were at a wedding at Ylang Ylang and everything was perfect. It's along a beautiful ocean beach and the landscaping is gorgeous. The food is great, the service is good, and the accommodations are delightful. There is a wide choice of room type -- all quite private -- with nice differences in price. The prices seem a little high,...

This is a top-notch resort in every way imaginable. We had a wonderful experience from the minute we got there. We stayed in a one-bedroom bungalow off the beat and track. We had a live show every night off our deck watching the monkeys. The grounds were impeccably clean and manicured, the gardens beautiful. The bed was very comfortable, the...

My fiance and I stayed in one of the tents there for five nights around the end of July/early August. I have so many great things to say about the place and the service! The tents pleasantly surprised me because they were well built with ceiling fans and even included showers! And the hotel location is so remote but very...

I came to Ylang Ylang for a wedding and I had the best time I've ever had on a vacation. I can't believe how nice and really authentic every moment was. The owners built everything themselves, and they did such a wonderful job! they even take you on a guided nature walk THROUGH THE JUNGLE explaining all the plants they...

I have never visited a place before where I have been treated so graciously. The staff here is beyond Words. From the moment I checked in to the moment my son & I left, we were in amazing hands.

We stayed at Ylang Ylang for a family wedding. The restaurant is marvelous and the lodging is super comfortable and well appointed. The pool and the grounds are magnificent and the service and employees are the best. It's in a great beach front location and close enough to walk to Montezuma. Loved the entire experience and highly recommend Ylang Ylang.
