Casa Viva is done so well that it's hard to imagine any improvements in design or management. Beautifully designed and made open air palapas right on the beach where the hum drowns out your busy thoughts. The fresh water infinity pool looks through coconut palms and is 20 yards from the water. It's built into the shared lounging space made out of incredible wood, bamboo and well crafted thatch that's an art piece in itself, outfitted with large amazing wood dining table, benches, covered kitchen, hammock chairs, hanging swings, couches, fridge, stocked beers, bathroom, internet and a stereo for your own music.
The round casita was super comfortable, spacious and relaxing. Waking up and staring out at the beach is paradise.
The staff of Benito and Elvira are super nice, accommodating and respectful of your needs and privacy. Having Elvira cook in-house fresh fish is a must.
The entire property was a beach jungle paradise and despite the fact that there's sand everywhere on the ground, the place is immaculately clean. The whole place blends into the natural landscape really well.
David and Leigh were exceptional to communicate with, answering all questions promptly and some of the nicest owners/managers we've encountered anywhere.
We're definitely coming back and highly recommend Casa Viva.
