Fabulous Grounds and Beach. Room needed help.

Very beautiful beach and grounds. Rooms are spaced throughout the property with walkways down to the beach. My room was in the nine unit building at the end of the walkway and it was not great. The decor was dated, the room was cramped and dimly-lit, and there was a pervasive mildew smell. That being said, the grounds are so beautiful they almost make you forget about the room. Restaurant food (breakfast and dinner are included) was fine although not outstanding in any way.

It was everything I had hoped it would be!

This was a return trip to Ylang Ylang Resort. After visiting the resort last year - -for our 30th anniversary - my wife and I wanted to have our kids join us this year (each of the kids is in their 20's). I wasn't sure that this would be the type of vacation that they would like/expect. IT WAS BETTER THAN I COULD HAVE HOPED FOR! From the moment we arrived we were "on the go"...climbing waterfalls/jumping from the rocks, zip-lines, snorkeling trips, etc. kept each of us active all-day-ever day....Ylang Ylang Resort is a terrific place. Unique accommodations/setting, great food/beverage, a location that makes it easy to visit "downtown" Montezuma (10 minute walk), and a staff that truly helps to make your visit memorable. It is a terrific place - and I hope to visit again soon!

I didn't think it could get any better

This was our second at Ylang Ylang. The first time was just myself and husband last Nov. and as the title suggests, I did not think it could get any better.

Woah.

The service is impeccable, spa is world class, food is very good. I absolutely recommend Ylang Ylang to anyone looking for a memorable stay.

Side Note: Food prices are what they are (over priced if you read other reviews) for good reason. Many of the dishes made at the restaurant require ingredients difficult to find in the area, and I'd imagine cost of transportation to such a small town is high. Mind you part of the reason you choose Ylang Ylang is for the seclusion. It's silly to think prices would be anything but, given the circumstances...

Ylang Ylang is great and we'll be back (again, and again)

Do not recommend

We stayed there in September 2018 and had to leave due to numerous reasons. We found many insects (cockroaches, spiders, crabs) in the rooms and in the beds. The room was dirty and musty and overall a bad experience, enough that had us pack our bags and leave early. The management was not on -site or reachable during our stay which left us with nobody to speak to, except staff who seemed to not want to be involved. When asked for any type of refund the management was rigid and not understanding.

Staff is amazing!

Very clean nice rooms. Top of the line staff! The resort has tons of wildlife including monkeys! Food portion was a little small and a hair over priced. Drinks were great but also over priced. We loved the staff and will return again soon we hope!
