While breakfast and dinner main courses are included in the price for our rooms at Ylang Ylang Beach Resort, we shouldn’t forget about the extras, including dessert. Our dessert in Costa Rica can’t be beat. We offer a number of delicious dessert options. Including some vegan and raw desserts as well! For non-vegans, we have a number of delicious crepes, including a Tiramisu crepe and a dark chocolate crepe. We also have an apple or banana crepe, banana flambe, chocolate truffles, and homemade frozen yogurt.
The Ylang Ylang property has some incredibly gorgeous gardens. One of the owners, Patricia, has spent many years creating these beautiful gardens. Once a week, Patricia offers a free garden tour in Montezuma to our guests. She walks them around the property, pointing out different trees, plants and flowers and gives them a brief history of this property and Ylang Ylang. She also brings along some fruit samples that grow on our trees. This is a fun way to get to know Patricia and the history of Ylang Ylang!
Thai and Alyson moved to Costa Rica to teach English. They fell in love with the country and after having lived here for a couple years were offered the opportunity to run a language school here in Montezuma. They moved to Montezuma last August to run Proyecto Montezuma. In March, they invited their friends and family to come visit their new home and celebrate their wedding! In the days before the wedding a volcano erupted in Costa Rica’s central valley and strong winds blew the ash into San Jose. This caused many flights to be cancelled or delayed and unfortunately many of Thai and Alyson’s guests were effected my this. In the end two guests were not able to make it, but everyone else was able to arrive just in time for the wedding. The gorgeous day was captured by Ale Sura Photography. All wedding planning and preparation was done by Ylang Ylang Beach Resort. Check out the beautiful photos below of their Costa Rica Beach Wedding.
When visiting Costa Rica, you’ve got many options when it comes to hotels, restaurants, and activities. It’s a great place for single travelers, couples, and families. Our fantastic hotel is located in a secluded area. It is relaxing because it is not a touristy crowded location in a major metropolis. This is one of the only family owned hotels around. Because it is family owned, your stay will definitely be memorable.
But you don’t have to take our word for it — we’ve gotten plenty of testimonials from travelers who’ve stayed with us. Some of the comments include:
“Pura Vida! Amazing! Wow! Ylang Ylang surpassed our expectations; it is not your stuffy, run-of-the-mill resort. It truly is casual relaxation mixed with elite and personalized accommodations.”
– Amy and Will
“What an incredible introduction to Costa Rica by choosing your resort!…I remember standing there and taking the sight of the resort in. I actually teared up because it was so beautiful. All of the different types of flowers, bushes, trees, landscape and how the buildings fit into the surrounding of the ocean was exquisite. We were standing in paradise…Thank you all so much for a vacation we’ll never forget and will highly recommend to all our friends and family. We hope to return some day.”
– John and Lara
“This is a gorgeous, relaxing, lovely corner of the earth. we’ve already decided to come back again & for longer.”
– Jayne & Tom
We’re very appreciative of the kind words, of course, but what we appreciate most is the opportunity to see our new friends come back. Hope to see you soon!
