Playa VIK Jose Ignacio
Ranked #7 of 9 Hotels in Jose Ignacio
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 February 2016

We spent an amazing week at Playa Vik over Christmas 2015. Sabrina and her staff were wonderful particularly Alfonso, David, John and Pamela to name but a few. Alex and Carrie Vik and their family were a regular presence during our stay and were gracious hosts.

We stayed in Casa Blanca, a two bedroom villa with a gorgeous sea view and floor to ceiling windows on three sides.

Although Playa Vik is probably not the most suitable resort for small children and we were concious of the need to keep our 5 year old twins sufficiently entertained so as not to disturb other guests, the staff were extremely welcoming towards them with an endless supply of piggybacks, treats and cuddles.

The iconic pool, which features in so many photographs was unfortunately freezing cold and was barely used by anyone during our week long stay.

Nothing was too much trouble. When our daughters decided on Christmas Eve that they only thing they wanted from Santa was a bell from his sleigh, Sabrina, with the help of some other guests, tracked down two bells and we were able to keep the magic of Christmas alive for another year.

We spent a magical Christmas Eve at Bahia Vik where the Vik team put on an amazing event for guests of all 3 Vik hotels. Imagine twinkling fairly lights in the trees, a bonfire on the beach, lamb roasting on a spit, a canoe filled with champagne, wonderful food, great music and the company of new friends. It was a truly memorable night.

Don't miss the fish BBQ at Playa Vik and the BBQ at Estancia Vik. La Susana was a lovely venue for lunch or for a casual early dinner with the kids. I also highly recommend Ryan's wine tour.

Room Tip: All rooms are amazing. Casa Blanca is the only 2 bed with a sea view.

From the first moment until the departure the whole experience was wonderful. Artistic design of the buildings, pool, rooms, bathrooms is simply fabulous. Paintings, sinks, dining tables, furniture, accessories are one of a kind. Pool top 10 as advertised. Location, ocean, sunset - all fantastic. And service was just wonderful. Staff was invisible only up to time you needed something, you just your head towards them and they are immediately ready to assist you. Definitely recommend this great hotel!

It was difficult to find a place that would accommodate our family of 17 for lunch on the 1st of the year. Thankfully Ryan was very helpful and welcomed our group for lunch and a visit to their beautiful amazing hotel and restaurant. Breathtaking views and delicious food made this a truly unforgettable experience. Perfect way to start the new year.

We came to this hotel from Turkey after a 20 hour flight. We were invited for a wedding. The service was extraordinary. We could not swim as it was a little bit chilly in December but those friends WHO did commented that there was a little bit too much chlore/disinfectant in the pool water. The beach, the view, the art work in the rooms, the spaciousness of the rooms, the library ;all these add value to the experience. It is only 12 houses and each house has a name. We stayed at Tierra. The front desk personnel _they are georgous. They smile, help and smile.

Lovely, chic resort in the town of Jose Ignacio. Beautiful rooms filled with art and fabulous views of the dramatic pool and ocean. Breakfast is simple but complete. The staff is very accommodating and aims to please. Be sure to spend some time at their sister resorts Bahia Vik and Estancia Vik. Jose Ignacio is filled with wonderful restaurants within walking distance so there is no need for a car unless you want to tour other nearby beach towns or Punta del Este.
