I didn't get to stay at Estancia Vik (although I would have LOVED TO). We spent the afternoon horseback riding around the amazing property! The leaders were very great and kept all the horses in check. We roamed all over the property and it was very beautiful. We also toured the hotel after our ride and it looked like a...

We took some friends from the United States to check the place, as they were planning to come back to Uruguay soon and were considering different options. As the telephone of the hotel is not listed we simply showed up. The hotel was open. However, as we walked in we were told by a young lady that it was closed...

Dear sir, First of all our apologies because you couldn't see our Marvelous Estancia Vik.

A wonderful escape from reality. The long winding road to the Estancia hardly prepares you for the warm and wonderful welcome upon arrival. Tomas and his staff are adorable and efficient.The building is breathtaking and the architectural spaces create amazing images from every viewpoint. The hotel is decorated with a wonderful mix of antique and contemporary furnishings....and great rich fabrics....

Just 8k from the beach the location and surroundings are unique. Tranquil, luxurious, peaceful, personable, friendly, professional, uber efficient! Surrounded by horses, cattle, sheep, birds living freely on the land, wildlife that goes with a river which runs in front of the property out to an estuary and then the sea. Wonderful lounges and a peaceful outdoor pool. Service was...

Estancia Vik is a home away from home. It is actually a home that was opened to the public. This is exactly how it feels. We took horse rides as dawn and dusk, were made potato chips upon request, and were treated with extreme comfort and generosity. The meals are amazing and their wine, VIK was delicious We got a...

We visited this fabulous resort as a result of winning a an all expense paid trip. It is a luxury accommodation with some of the best service I have ever experienced. All staff are courteous and friendly, with a good command of several languages. The resort itself is a work of art, featuring outstanding paintings, sculptures and designs from a...

Hard to imagine a more peaceful refuge in what is the most elegant and artistic environment. Service and food was outstanding. The rooms full of delightful art were inspiring. We also stayed at the beach Vik nearby which also was top notch. But I highly recommend the countryside version for a memorable experience.

As you ride along a beautiful winding country road on your left in the distance an amazing site appears.. A huge, white, pristine Estancia perched high on a hill.. That is the beginning of a truly amazing and unique experience.. There are over 25 horses, cows, all types of beautiful birds including the Uruguayan version of Ostrich, parrots galore and...

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...
