I love to travel and have been to countless beautiful places - but I must say Ylang Ylang and Montezuma combat my passion for the western coast of Ireland. My husband, who hadn't traveled beyond the US border until this trip, was bitten by the beauty of the landscape, the wildlife, and of course, the lovely people of Costa Rica...

My 5th stay at Ylang Ylang was as enjoyable as ever. There is so much to do or do nothing at all and just take in the beautiful surroundings. The staff could not be more friendly and accomadating. I highly recommend it!

We were at Ylang Ylang for a wedding and were very pleasantly surprised. Getting there was not a simple task but once we were there....tropical paradise. The owners could not have been more accommodating and helpful. Restaurant did not serve a bad meal and the service was excellent. The grounds are well kept and lush. We saw lots of interesting...

The resort is absolutely beautiful. Pictures do not do it justice. When we were in the process of trying to choose the resort for our destination wedding we read so many horror stories. I have nothing negative to say about the resort and it's customer service. The wedding planner here is fantastic and made the wedding planning so easy. Every...

Originally we were a bit skeptic as the official ranking is 3 stars, but then we arrived and we realized we got to heaven. Amazing location with great rooms, super friendly and helpful staff (led by the super kind owner) and great food (make sure to book the breakfast + dinner package). We super recommend to anyone who wants to...

First off, let me preface, if you frequent luxury 5-Star resorts, this is probably not the place for you. It is a beautiful, cozy resort with basic amenities. The food however is definitely 5 Star worthy! Only one small complaint around the food is there is no meat on the breakfast menu and no beef/red meat on any of the...

This resort was fabulous in so many ways. We stayed in Coco Joes - a lovely bungalow, well appointed, very close to the beach, sound of the waves was awesome. the environment is beautiful - nature everywhere, animals, fauna... The staff were exceptionally professional, friendly and helpful. The restaurant was quaint, quiet, peaceful. The food was amazing - fresh, flavourful....

What an amazing place right on the ocean front. Several walking trails, great food, and amazing views. This would be a perfect location for a quiet honeymoon getaway. Very much worth the stop and I would visit again!

If you don't like animals and nature, this is not your place. If you love the chance to be surrounded by nature, a sense of the wild, crashing waves, monkey families playing, agoutis, lizards and birds surrounding you, then this is your place. On top of all that, the food is excellent, the service is friendly and the little dome...

The Room: Very small, we had the one that had two double beds and no room even for a closet in there. But you have your patio seating outside as well as hammocks and so it's not like you need to be in the room apart from sleeping. We were a family of four (1 five yr old and 1...

“We LOVED our garden "dome." It was off the main path, able to hear and see patches of ocean through the trees, and were surrounded by wildlife. Getting down to the beach took literally 3 minutes or less. ”
