"Our stay was absolutely wonderful. I knew from the minute we arrived that I would surely come back for another vacation. It will be hard to have to share the place next time!
I have traveled to Mexico 10+ times and this was one of my favorite trips. Far exceeded our expectations. The food was delicious and Chucky was extremely accommodating. He even made me a vegan omelette which was delicious. We ate far too much!
The staff were all so warm and friendly and long hugs were exchanged when we departed. We truly enjoyed the company of Johnny, Julia and Aavi. We are also now Dominos fanatics!
We have no complaints at all. Our only recommendation would be to have a chest of drawers available in the EcoCasitas. It's a little tough living out of a suitcase for 6 days."
Every communal area at Playa Viva is a place for you and your friends and family to enjoy one another within the luxury of nature.
Common Area features:
Pool and Recreation Areas
The Playa Viva Pool is NON-TOXIC using locally harvested salt and an ionizer to create natural chlorine. The water is no saltier than your tears and gentle on your skin. The child pool covers 1/3rd of pool structure including a small soaking tub. This is the centerpiece of the Common Area.
Reception and Boutique
All guests are received in the common area once they arrive from the airport or by car. Hosts will give you a brief orientation of the facilities before directing you to your room where your luggage will be waiting for you. Airport ground transportation is complimentary for all guests staying 3 or more nights. A small boutique is located in the Common Area carrying arts, crafts, t-shirts and sundry items you might need during your stay or as souvenirs.
Restaurant and Bar
Some guests think of the kitchen as the heart, or at least the stomach, of Playa Viva. The open air kitchen and our cooking staff invite you to participate in preparing meals and learning how to cook your favorite Playa Viva specialties including simple items such as handmade tortillas or the more complex dishes such as mole. All meals are served family style as we ask you to enjoy sharing meals with your fellow guests. If you ever want to have a private meal for any reason, please let our staff know and it will be arranged accordingly.
Yoga Platform and Beach Area
Several areas are available for yoga including poolside or up in the observatory depending on the size of the group. Playa Viva enjoys close to a mile of uninterrupted beachfront, yet the beach provides a pristine view north and south as far as the eye can see.
Several palapas have been set up to provide shade for sitting in lounge chairs or in hammocks.
