Perfect way to spend our 25th wedding anniversary (vegan friendly resort)
Reviewed 1 week ago

Ylang Ylang and Montezuma beach were everything I was hoping for when I booked our vacation. If your day to day life has gotten crazy and you're looking to spend a little time exploring a slower pace of life; if you want to have a few fun activities, but don't want to spend your Costa Rican vacation driving; if you want quite seclusion combined with convenience; beautiful landscapes; friendly faces; great food and perfect weather this is the place to go.

Ylang Ylang is a very short walk from town, but feels miles away. We stayed in the Tree Top Canopy where we were visited daily by white faced monkeys; could hear the howler monkeys, and caught a glimpse of the elusive coati. Walking the grounds of the resort we saw many iguanas, basilisk, hermit crabs, land crabs, herons, and agouti. We had a great time learning to surf from Rainier, at Young Vision Surf School. We ran into Crazy Carlos on our way up Montezuma falls who showed us the best spots to dive. Eduardo was a wealth of knowledge regarding plant and animal species at Curu Wildlife Reserve where we saw animals we did not encounter at Ylang Ylang like deer and maccaws.

The food at Ylang Ylang was as beautifully presented as it was delicious. We are a vegan couple and had a large selection of vegan choices including raw vegan. The resort also caters to gluten free and other dietary differences. The drink menu was brilliant allowing room to try something new everyday if you wished with or without alcohol.

The staff was fantastic--friendly and helpful at every turn. Whether we needed pool towels, an excursion, a ride to the airport, a zip line tour, or just wanted to ask questions about an animal we had encountered, Alex was happy to help. Darren always had a warm greeting for us in the restaurant. The housekeeping crew were fast, thorough and left their signature in the room (towels folded into a new shape each day: heart, turtle, monkey, etc.). Although I haven't mentioned everyone by name, there was not a person on staff who wasn't fabulous.

I would love to keep this resort in my pocket as a hidden gem, but it wouldn't be fair to all of the people who worked so hard to make our trip fantastic. We can't wait to return.

Great honeymoon location

Me and my wife had such an amazing time at the resort. The location was absolutely stunning and all of the staff members were extremely friendly. I recommend staying in the tree top canopy so you can see some howler monkeys :)

Such an amazing stay!

We had a wonderful week at the Ylang Ylang Beach Resort. We brought our 4 children ages 12 to 4 and we all had the best time. The entire staff was so friendly and treated us like we were their favorite guests, the food was great, the grounds were well taken care of, the wildlife was plentiful, the ocean and jungle views couldn't be beat, the spa was amazing, the beach side yoga was perfect, I could go on and on...I'd give more than 5 stars if possible. It does take some time to get there, but we loved the remote location and the journey getting there was part of the fun!

Hidden Gem!!

What a special place this is. Stayed in the beach bungalow and it was perfect.
Wake up and go to sleep with the crashing waves. Watching the monkey's playing in the trees. Total relaxation! The staff was great. Patrica, Darren and Jody took great care of us at the restaurant. Food was fabulous. Sorry I can't remember the names of the front desk staff but they were all very helpful and kind. Yearling at the spa was top notch. I was in total bliss after each session. I went on the Curu Wildlife tour with Eduardo and he is top notch! Eduardao is a nautralist and has been doing this for 25+ years. he knows his stuff we saw all kinds of birds Macaws. etc. howler and white face monkeys, deer, lizards several odd plants and trees. It was a fantastic! Horseback riding to the waterfall was awesome. I can not say enough about this very special place. The only bad part was having to leave.

Little paradise directly at the beach

We enjoyed 3 wonderful days at Ylang Ylang - staying at the Coco Joe Bungalow. Nicely located at the back end midst in a flower garden with direct access to the beach. Lovely pool in the garden surounded by Palm Trees, Monkeys and other animals.
Very friendly staff - exceptional good food at the restaurant with beach view!
