Just back from an All Inclusive week at the Viva Hotel and so glad we booked it! The room was fantastic and extremely clean with the towels changed on a daily basis. The choice of food available for each meal was amazing and different every day, we especially loved the amount of fresh fruit and plentiful supply of puddings! For... More
