Stayed there in December. Incredible location. Stunning architecture. Fantastic service. Great food. Perfect. Service was top notch and incredibly responsive. Rooms are incredible. As good a hotel as we've ever stayed in.

We have had the privilege of staying in great hotels around the world and Playa VIK is certainly in the top group, depending of course on what you are looking for. Much has been written of the architecture and situation, both of which are perfect but the 'stand out' in our view is the service - not obsequious or posh... More

This is a one of a kind . Situated in jose ignacio this is a exclusive resort more reminiscent of the hamptons than south america . The bungalows are situated on and off the beach . The beachfront is better . Each room has decor and paintings from artists - an art lovers dream some bathrooms had an amethyst sink... More

It's been featured in every travel magazine n its deservedly so. I felt like a private houseguest in an ultra chic n modern compound....every room/suite faces the ocean....mine in the main house(the sculpture) is fantastic overlooking the infinity pool(with lights designed by James turrell) n the ocean. The food for both breakfast n dinner r great. They don't allow non... More

The place is just great. We went the day that high season was just ending so we enjoy a best combination of great hotel facilities all for us. Great food, rooms and it's like sleeping in the beach as the rooms are just there, next to the brach. The endless swimming pool is outstanding, peaceful and all has its great... More

Playa Vik is that hotel you see in the magazines and are not sure it is even real. Until you actually stay there. And when you do....your expectations are met and then some. ( well.....for the most part). From the architecture to the service to the rooms and art and so many details....it is truly magical. Everyone went out of... More

Playa Vik is an ultra-modern art-filled beach house set in Jose Ignacio, a sleepy village near Puente del Este. Enjoy meals whenever you like prepared just for you. Bike riding through the village, awesome infinity pool, beach walks, hippie chic shopping. Visit Estancia Vik for gaucho experience of horseback riding (we rode bikes between the two properties.) Sexy, special, spoiling,... More

Playa Vik "rescued" us from a disastrous villa booking in February. The rooms were beautiful in a very unique way, having been painted with murals by famous local artists. The food was plentiful and excellent, and the grounds and architecture were like nothing we had ever seen - in a very good way. The service was very special - the... More

Jose Ignacio, a small beach village in Uruguay, is a great place to go for a break from busy Buenos Aires or anyplace for that matter. This rustic beach town’s population swells in summer months mostly with the rich and famous of Latin America. But perhaps the best time to go to Jose Ignacio is in March and April when... More

The Playa Vik Is fabulously different ! Every room is individual in its original art work and design . The layout naturally focuses on the beautiful sandy bay view ( including the central building which houses the restaurant and 3 of the 12 - or 17 if divided out -rooms ) , as well as the photogenic black granite infinity...
