I feel incredibly grateful that I was able to come and experience Playa Viva. So many smiles from the staff whenever... you crossed paths. Everything was always so clean. You can tell there’s so much respect for the land. Perfectly placed hammocks and loungers if you felt like you needed space, it was there for you. The food and refreshments were absolutely amazing. The variety of everything was impeccable. My deepest appreciation for everything and everyone who is apart of this place. Thank you for having me ***read more

I came to Playa Viva on a yoga retreat and could not have been happier with the experience. The staff made me feel like... they really cared about our experience and tried to accommodate all the needs of our fairly diverse group. The beach was pristine and gorgeous, no one but us as far as they eye could see and had the pleasure of seeing whales, dolphins and baby turtles on more than one occasion. The yoga platform had the most gorgeous views and was well stocked with high quality mats and props. For our evening practice they pulled down these translucent golden shades to prevent the sun from getting in our eyes while it set, creating an almost otherworldly experience. The food was fresh, healthy and abundant every day including fresh coconut milk for those who are dairy free, SOOO delicious. I also loved the small but beautifully curated boutique, they had a lovely selection of handmade items at reasonable prices. I visited every day, sometimes more than once! One other thing I loved about Playa Viva was they had a beautiful rescue dog named Mama on the property that had found them and then been adopted by a couple who visited there some months prior. It somehow added to the homeyness of it all. I would definitely come here again.read more

My four stays over five years have made Playa Viva is a touchstone for me -- when I can't sleep I imagine myself there,... the ocean pounding outside my room at night, the birds and crickets, the gentle air. The food is delicious and healthy, the staff attentive and friendly, and the environment is physically beautiful to the point of breathtaking. Playa Viva is a place to relax and restore your peace of mind.read more

Playa Viva is more than a luxurious resort with amazing beach views and beautiful and comfortable accommodations.It is... an experience, in tune with eco and social consciousness : farm to table delicious dinners and support to sea turtle conservation and various local projects. It also feels like a home thanks to the friendliest and warmest staff I've ever met.I stayed for 11 days and was heartbroken to leave all the beautiful people who work at Playa Viva. I will cherish this stay forever.Thank you Playa Viva !read more

This small, eco-friendly resort is a true paradise. Because it sits on 200 acres you feel like you have an entire... coastline to yourself. The staff are all so nice and helpful and want to make your stay truly amazing. I dream about the fresh, homemade meals cooked here! The work that Playa Viva does with La Tortuga Viva is so important and by staying here you're supporting an amazing cause, plus BABY TURTLES!! Do I need to say more?read more

Beautiful place with spirit. The staff is the heart of this resort. The food is unbelievable and the views will take... your breath away. Note: Be prepared for bugs in your room as they are not fully enclosed and I was not prepared. The beds are prepared for you in the evening with nets, which will help keep them out (thank goodness)!read more
