I echo all of Casa Viva's positive reviews: the gardens, casitas, and common area are all immaculate and beautifully put together. The staff is wonderful. Elvira is a gem and her food is pure made-from-scratch deliciousness. Troncones is somewhat off the beaten path, which suited us just fine. It's quiet and low-key, but there's plenty to do. We swam, sunned,... More

Our stay at Casa Viva was incredible. We traveled there with our three kids 3, 6, & 7. The staff Elvira and Benito are amazing. Elvira is a phenomenal cook. We recommend purchasing meals as there is not a lot around without some planning or walking to access other food options. There is no ATM or grocery in Troncones so... More

Casa Viva is done so well that it's hard to imagine any improvements in design or management. Beautifully designed and made open air palapas right on the beach where the hum drowns out your busy thoughts. The fresh water infinity pool looks through coconut palms and is 20 yards from the water. It's built into the shared lounging space made... More

This property is beautiful, but be warned….if you are a light sleeper, you will not get a wink of sleep with the sound of the crashing waves…even with earplugs. The casitas are "open air" which means no glass in any of the windows, no complete walls or roof expect for the palapa. Not a lot of privacy (if you're on... More

We stayed there for just 1 night on December 1st for my son's 20th Birthday. They were so kind as to allow us to check in early so we could enjoy the property. We went Surfing (surfboard rentals nearby) and Body Surfing in Troncones, nearby. We lazed around in the pool and in the sun and went shell searching on... More

LOVED our stay! Arrived intending to stay 2 nights and stayed an extra day!What a gorgeous space. We seriously did not want to leave and our 7 hour drive back to Mexico City was not the chirpiest! The casitas are beautifully designed to blend in with the surroundings and are large and airy and we just loved how everything was... More
