La Viuda de Jose Ignacio
Ranked #1 of 9 Hotels in Jose Ignacio
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 December 2017 via mobile

The hotel is quirky but pleasant, but the attention is outstanding!

I am an invalid and they had allocated us a wonderful large room with a balcony with distant views of the sea. Since it was in the first floor by stairs, they took the trouble of ordering a bannister specially. And it went on like that.

Breakfast is brilliant and abundant. We stayed 5 nights and had dinner there three times and was excellent, though limited choices
All in all, a very nice place

I booked this hotel based on TripAdvisor reviews on their customer service, and the staff did not disappoint. They were extremely helpful and polite, and helped us arrange transportation for a dinner that was 40 minutes away. The breakfast was also delicious. It's a fun hotel with a lot of interesting art.

Stayed 3 nights in late March. Ricardo and all the staff were wonderful hosts.
We enjoyed great service, food and our stay was very enjoyable. The short walk to the beach is a big plus.
My wife and I would love to return one day.

I've been there with my teen daughter and it was a quite pleasant staying!
The staff is extremely kind and welcoming, the atmosphere of the place is cosy and cool.
It is near of the Playa Vik, and the Jose Ignacio village, where we can find exquisite restaurants and beautiful people.
Is you rent a car is easy to go to Punta and the other places in a very few time!
The managers of the hotel are real gentlemen.

We were on a driving holiday and this hotel was booked by our travel agent. We had stayed at some boutique hotels and some luxury hotels before we reached La Viuda. At first sight, the hotel was not what we expected. It appeared to fall short of the standard of hotels, that we had stayed at in Uruguay and Argentina. It was at the 200 yards up an unmade road. It reminded us of a 3 star 1970s resort hotel in Greece. The room had a sink and a Jacuzzi in it. The toilet//shower were in a separate area off the bedroom.

It was quirky.

However Ricardo on reception gave us a very warm welcome. He was receptive to 1 or 2 queries that my wife had.

Ricardo explained that breakfast was served whenever you are ready-we could always have breakfast at 2 PM if that's when we got up. Although we got up at the usual time of 11 PM, the breakfast was there and delightfully served by the staff on the table around the pool.

We were warming to the place after one night. Ricardo gave us excellent advice on the restaurants to go to. As he promised, the restaurants he recommended were great.
