What a gem this restaurant is! If you want a fancy meal overlooking the ocean, this is the best spot near Montezuma! A 10 minute walk down the beach, Ylang Ylang is tucked back in the jungle overlooking the beautiful ocean. I came here for probably 5 or more meals during my stay in Montezuma. I really appreciated the atmosphere... More

We have eaten here 3 nights and tried something different each evening. The fish, shrimp and chicken were cooked perfectly and each fish had its own unique flavours.

Finding a menu of vegan options is phenomenal! How else to get warm weather in January and a healthy diet? Just compare menus in the nearby Montezuma to realize how wonderful this is. That said, a couple of suggestions. One, having nut milk and cereal as a breakfast option would go a long way.. Second, we stayed 10 days and... More

We spent four days at the Ylang Ylang resort and took advantage of the food included in our trip. Glad we did bcs there just weren't enough evening and mornings to experience all the wonderful food. The chefs took great pride in presentation and taste. Thanks so much for paying attention to details from the staff's quick and friendly service,... More

Our reservation included breakfast and dinner at the Ylang Ylang restaurant and we were never disappointed. Everything we ate was amazing. Although included in our reservation, after visiting several other areas in Costa Rica, the pricing for such fine food was excellent as well. I would definitely recommend visiting the restaurant while you are in the Montezuma area!

Nice menues but I must admit that I got pretty tired of chicken - all meals were well cooked and served and perhaps it was also quite wholesome, but I would have liked a bit oxe also!

Our stay at Ylang Ylang was totally perfect, and this included the meals. We each had a different (included) breakfast with endless coffee each morning and a different (included) dinner each night. We also had the good luck to be there on Christmas, when they had an epic buffet, live music, and bonfire. This was one of the highlights of... More
