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...

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...

If you want to experience a hotel where you feel you've lucked out and been invited to the most gorgeous home for the weekend where the staff and hostess will do anything to make you happy PLAYA VIK should be your choice.

My boyfriend and I just stayed at Playa Vik and absolutely loved it. By day you can enjoy sunbathing by the modern, infinity edged pool (which is most likely what you'll be doing as the pool is not heated) and in the evening your eyes will be diverted to the gorgeous sunset views out over the ocean as the property...

For quite some time we wanted to visit José Ignacio and stay at the Playa Vik. Finally we made it and it's worth every dime. We love the place. Outstanding design & location, extremely nice and attentive service - and one of the most beautiful pools of the world. Best place to stay at José Ignacio. Would we come back?...

Playa Vik is a small (11 room) but beautiful hotel located in the charming and very trendy fishing village of Jose Ignacio. The main , art filled "Structure" contains two huge suites overlooking the infinity pool and ocean as well as public areas on the floor below. The remaining rooms are in other contemporary design buildings, all done in a...

stayed here at the end of a great holiday and it was the highlight. Quite possibly the most ridiculously extravagant place I have ever stayed. Clearly a huge amount of love has been poured into the design of these incredible spaces. James Bond would be very at home here.... Go for a room in the main sculpture building - esp...

This is one of the most beautiful hotels I have ever stayed at. Truly the definition of paradise. The views were amazing and I was constantly in awe of the beautiful art. To top it off, the service is excellent. I would most definitely recommend this hotel to anyone.

Everything was perfect at this small hotel on the beach in the small exquisite town of Jose Ignacio. Friendly attentive service, great food, marvelous art and furnishings, a nice pool, very comfortable suite - it was all as good as it gets. It is right on the quiet beach in town with fantastic sunset views. The town is the nicest...

The property is superbly located with a 180 degree view of the beach. The architecture, the artwork, the infinity cantilever pool, the open common area....every corner I turn my heart skipped a beat. Great architecture does not normally go hand in hand with comfort and utility but here it does, to the perfection!!! And I don't even know how to...
