My partner and I recently stayed at Playa Viva for too short a stay. We thoroughly enjoyed everything about the property – staff, architecture, design, beaches, solitude, trash/walk bags, solitude, location, accommodations, water, solitude, peace, and on.
I knew I was in the right place when I started observing the pelican formations follow the cresting wave lines, watching the Willets methodically stock their prey on the beach, and forgetting about everything else. We spent a good part of our meals studying the beautiful joinery in the ceilings of the pavilion and any number of other skillfully executed design details throughout the property.
Thank you for creating what we truly understand was an act of love, commitment, patience, tenacity and attention to details.We travel extensively and know just how special this property truly is.
