Upon arrival, the manager Thomas said that Estancia was built so that guests would feel like they were at their country home. From the moment I arrived until I left that is exactly the sensation that I felt. Everyone was incredibly warm and hospitable. Guadelupe ensured that I had water for my bike ride and Paula ensured that I had... More

We spent 4 nights at Estancia Vik and loved it. Gorgeous views over the countryside, exceptional staff (thanks, Guadeloupe!), delicious food all contribute to a peaceful getaway that's as active or restful as you wish. We whiled away a couple of days by the pool and beach at Bahia Vik which was also great. We'll definitely be back.

Estancia Vik is an exquisite hotel in a beautiful setting in Jose Ignacio. The approach to the hotel is enthralling, wide fields, a river, graceful horses. After wending your way down a curvy dirt road, the hotel suddenly comes into view. It is beautiful and inviting. The rooms are luxurious with every conceivable amenity; ours included a shower without walls... More

This Estancia seems that had been designed for those looking for a romantic and quiet place, but with sophisticated expectations. Surrounded only by nature, it is about 5 or 10 minutes to the center of Jose Ignacio, where the magnificent beach are, and also all the great restaurants. The beautiful property is very well conserved, with great pieces of art... More

If your in the neighborhood of Jose Ignacio' or looking for a quiet place to get out of the hustle bustle of the Uruguayan beach towns, Estancia VIK is a good choice. Just off the road, easy to find. Once there, step into PEACEFULNESS. Service is magnificent , the "non hotel" style is refreshing. The art , the VISION of... More

Estancia Vik is a gorgeous property in an unbelievable setting. The property is set on hundreds of acres near Jose Ignacio, surrounded by fields and pastures, ponds and streams, and the lagoon and ocean in the distance. Beautiful horses, cows and sheep roam the grounds and all public spaces and guest rooms have pristine views. The setting is really remarkable... More

Amazing resort. Jose Ignacio is incredible. The staff at this resort are lovely. The rooms are each different and incredible. The food and wine also great. Only thing I would improve upon would be a gym.

I had no idea what to expect about Uraguay. I said yes to an invitation from a friend who passed along the information on a trip to Estancia Vik near Jose Ignacio with a cute sounding bunch. I was up for an adventure, the place looked pretty nice and off I went. What took place upon my arrival was almost... More
