“What a perfect place to spend time with dear friends”
Reviewed 30 October 2010

The only tough decision is should one sit cradled in the chair sling overlooking the ocean, go in the pool or walk on the rocky, dramatic beach. This place is understated, comfortable and designed around the environment.

It is a beautiful, safe and relaxing lowkey place with private as well as community gathering spots. We spent a lot of time at the big wooden table talking and enjoying the home-cooked Mexican food with plenty of fruit and fresh fish and watching the sunsets. There are many lovely places, including the "barcalounger" swings by the pool to read, reflect, enjoy the ocean view, chat, whatever. The grounds are lovely with much attention to a natural footprint--recycled water, berms to direct the water for maximum use, fruit trees, even bags to pick up shore litter on beach walks, The half hour walk to the nearby small town is fun, with a few rest stops for cold drinks along the way.

If you are looking for a place to relax and get out of the "all inclusive hotels", this is the place to be!

One of the most unique things about Casa Viva is that the construction is very well integrated with the environment, the design of the house flows naturally and it blends with the nature around; you feel part of the surrounding nature. I really liked this is an authentic project that cares about environment by using organic products; All the raw materials were found in the area and that were re utilized to make them part of the construction. All the care and philosophy used to build Casa Viva gives a very unique and different experience anyone could get from a big mass hotel; there's even an edible garden! It is great to see how this is an original proposal that steps out of the box and brings an organic and original experience into your holidays.

The staff is amazing, Benito is very friendly and will make everything possible to make your stay pleasant, and Elvira is great in the kitchen, she will cook real Mexican food with a great , if you feel like having a special dinner both will do their best to make it happen. We asked Benito to get some lobster for us and he did a great job bringing the catch of the day to us!

I really recommend it if you want to go for a romantic getaway or a gathering with friends and family, im sure in anyway it will bring everyone closer. The house is equipped with everything you need without compromising your enjoyment of nature and relaxation. I will definitely go back!

When you see my ratings you may think that I am exaggerating - which my husband tells me that I am prone to doing. Casa Viva was one of the best holidays we have ever had. The telephones did not have great reception, the tv was not hanging on the wall, the internet was there if you were really needing it, but we never used or missed any of them. The kids went from the beach to the pool, back to the beach to the pool. Mum's if you are looking for a holiday where you don't need to cook or even think about where to eat this is your dream. Elvira cooks all meals and her standards of quality and variety amazed us daily. Casa Viva is a wonderful find and the 5 stars speak for themselves.

Granted, we had the entire place to ourselves--so that really made it special but other guests or not...it is one of the most special places I've ever been! Totally remote!! There are only three bungalows and definitely the round and square casitas are the place to be. Ocean front, always breezy and you fall asleep the sound of the waves.
My boyfriend is a music producer/director and I am a film producer, we were looking for a quiet place to write music and write treatments and we fell into heaven!
The place is beautiful designed, totally aligned with nature using mostly, if not all, reclaimed wood and natural material. You share the grounds with lots of beautiful creatures...lizards, geckos, birds and yesterday, maybe it was the full moon..but there was a family of pigs (with their little piglet) that took a stroll around the area and then two wild horses were frolicking on the beach. Gorgeous!
There is always a breeze...the weather is great. And it's MAY! We were worried it would be too hot since there are no air conditioners. But it's perfect.
Open spaces, even the bedrooms...very much like being in Thailand! You can have the wonderful staff cook food for you or you can go to the supermarket about 30 minutes away and bring your own food and cook it. The natural pool is one with the common area so it's great, you can swim and still chat with your friends in the common area. My favorites are the hammock swings and the beautiful natural wood swing around the pool.

Upon arriving here you are not sure quite what to expect going thru the town of Troncones. It's a bit abandoned looking and could seem a bit dodgy if you haven't traveled much. It's really out there! But it's totally fine and quite sweet, actually. We bicycled in the other day to the little market and bought some fruit and staples to tide us over between big shopping trips. Everyone was lovely!
Bring books and even bring your computer. They have great WiFi and a good speaker system in the common area.
Come and truly relax. The only thing to do is eat, sleep, swim and explore...and ENJOY

David the owner and everyone here is just terrific.
Thank you for a wonderful experience! We will definitely be back! And can't wait to visit your eco-community at Playa Viva!

A few weeks ago, I had the luxury of enjoying Playa Viva with a few friends. Upon our arrival, we were greeted by an amazing sunset view and smell of a wonderful home cooked meal. Our gracious host, David Leventhal lead us to our beautiful and private palapa, complete with fresh local flowers. By the way, the beds were heaven!
Playa Viva is perfectly situated not too far from the small town of Troncones and not too close. The grounds are peaceful and spacious with an amazing pool and consistently stocked refrigerator of beer. The staff were kind and respectful, always eager to help with anything that we needed. There are numerous activities of every kind nearby, but we mainly enjoyed the beach directly out front. I look forward to returning with my fiance this Spring. Playa Viva is truly a magical setting, perfect for families too.
Thank you David and staff again for making my trip to Troncones a relaxing and fun-filled vacation.

This location is magnificent. The food is delicious. I had an opportunity to truly get reacquainted with nature in a manner that I couldn't, living in a city. Well Casa Viva is no city of people - just an abundance of life - very alive and pure planet earth.

Bravo Casa Viva
