Once again, a wonderful vacation to viva!! This was my third trip there and took a friend and my daughter. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT...if you wish for shade, you MUST get down to the beach at least by 6:30 at the latest 7:00 a.m. to reserved your cabana with towel on the chair. Also, I realize "tips" are included with your package, however, these people work their butts off and deserve a tip, we tipped all our waiters and bartenders (you also receive quicker service and they remember you).
The food was great and the website simply does not do the beach justice. Although not good for swimming because of the rocks, but you walk forever!!! My only complaint is the reserving of chairs, at Sandals you're not allowed to reserve chairs, which is the way to go.
There were people who would have towels on chairs when I got down there at 6:30 and would not show up until afternoon, we went down right after breakfast!! Javier was our waiter on the beach, treat him right!!! If you want an out of the way place without the hustle and bustle, viva is the way to go!!! Any questions, please feel free to email me.
