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.

What an incredible place. Nothing is an issue or problem here. They do look after you. The setting, deco, style of property is 6 stars. Very friendly staff. Tomas the Estancia manager was very nice and accommodating. We had the chance of staying 2 nights and I managed to see all the rooms, each of them with a different character... More

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

This hotel is amazing!! Only 10 minutes inland from the beach, this hotel has every amenity possible, from horse back riding to biking to paint balling. The views are absolutely spectacular and it definitely has a very authentic ranch feel to it, with countless lambs, horses and cows wandering the property. The food was out of this world and the...

I had the most amazing stay at estancia. Service is beyond excellent. Food is absolutely exceptional. And the place oh the place...it's a dream. Art meets nature. I woke up in the morning and there are cows grazing right outside my terrace. I go to the spa and there are horses roaming around the river steps away from me. I... More

Definitely one of the most beautiful places on earth!! I fell in love with this place the first time I visited it, during a wine tour in Uruguay. Estancia Vik is magical – amazing location, beautiful landscapes, beautiful design and architecture. The whole place is a piece of art. The pool area and the barbecue area are my favorite spots....

Estancia Vik and it's sister Playa Vik are not just places to stay - they are experiences. A friend and I visited to celebrate her 50th birthday. The staff did everything possible to ensure a memorable stay. The service is absolutely the best. Agustin, Sophia, Alfonoso and everyone else could not have been better. Any request was handled immediately. There... More

We spent 2 days at the Estancia Vik Jose Ignacio. The service, the staff, the food , the accommodations, the amenities are indescribable. The Estancia and Playa Vik retreats are truly the first 5 star hotel we have been fortunate enough to visit in Uruguay. There are very lovely hotels in Uruguay; however, the Vik Retreats are resorts that are... More

Estancia Vik is a beautiful property about five miles from Jose Ignacio. We went because we had heard great things from polo-playing friends, and because my wife is an equestrienne. The staff is very attentive and welcoming. Our room was the most spacious, beautiful and comfortable that we have ever had in 28 years of traveling together. The poolside area,... More
