Hotel Review

For a laid back family friendly break on Costa Rica's Pacific coast, Ylang Ylang is hard to beat. Nestled between a gorgeous stretch of sandy beach and rainforest teeming with wildlife, here you can experience the best of both worlds. Accommodation comes in a wide range of options from beach front rooms to bungalows (either beach or jungle location) and tree top suites; there really is something for everyone! All are decorated in a similar fashion and all have a terrace with either jungle or ocean views. The vibe is rustic, yet without compromising on the modern amenities that we've all come to expect: en suite bathrooms, air-con, in-room fridges...The restaurant serves a wide range of cuisines - amazing fresh fish, vegetarian, vegan, raw foods and gluten free but the main aim is to champion fresh, local and organic products, and its reputation speaks for itself - you will not be disappointed. With its amazing location, charming accommodation and huge range of activities on offer in the surrounding area, Ylang Ylang ticks every box whether you just want to tune-out on the beach with a good book, or get out and about experiencing all this region has to offer.
