Stunning views and spectacular hotel
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

If you want to escape from the stresses of everyday life, take a few days away at Vivood. It's adult only, and has subtle 'silencio' signs strategically placed in the landscape to help you remember the relaxing theme of the hotel. The landscaping is very natural and not 'overdone', which helps it to blend into the stunning hillside in which it's positioned. The views from each room have the wow factor. After the first night we left our blinds open at night so that we could wake in the morning to the panoramic scene of the sunrise behind the hills. Magical. Service was very attentive and friendly by bar and restaurant staff - the right balance between catering for your needs, and being able to pass the time away with a friendly chat. The gin and tonics with cucumber were amazing... They have a separate vegetarian/vegan menu which also highlights any allergens. We ate in the restaurant on two nights and the food was spot on. Breakfast has everything you could want - from the buffet to the cooked to order food. There's even cava at breakfast should you decide to have a sleepy day round the stunning infinity pools. Our room was clean, and the rain shower with the view of the hills was very welcome. The walk down to the lake and nearby dam is worth it - you can also continue up to picturesque Guadalest and also do the 10km or so right round the lake, ending up in Benimental village. We hope to come back one day and hopefully book an upgrade at a private pool suite. If you're in need of complete relaxation, away from the crowds, visit Vivood, life's too short not to treat yourself. Your body and mind will thank you for it.

MOST GORGEOUS HOTEL EVER
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

I truly wanted to give this hotel 5 stars... I believe that they are on the right track, but just haven’t added all of the finishing touches. We arrived at night so we could not even see the valley or the cliffs upon arrival, so in the morning when the sun crept through our floor to ceiling window I was completely stunned by the scenery. Words cannot do the beauty justice! But the bed did not have a bedcover (it just had a sheet and a comforter), which I thought was unusual because I’ve never stayed in a hotel that did not have one. The big floor to ceiling window had a big handprint smeared on it as well. The room was a little dirty and my mom was wiping off the table a couple minutes after arriving.

The restaurant was amazing!! I miss the cold soups that they had for breakfast (my favorite was the strawberry basil, so delicious). We ate every meal at the hotel during our two night stay and didn’t have a bad meal. The service at the restaurant was good. The view, of course, was amazing here as well. I do wish that the menu had changed up a little more though because I am a picky eater and ended up ordering some of the same dishes twice because there wasn’t a lot of options for me. I definitely recommend the pumpkin steak and the vivood salad.

The pools (there are 2) are the most beautiful pools I have ever seen! They are infinity pools that look out into the valley and are surrounded by trees and cliffs. So relaxing.

We were told the spa would be finished next month (which will really add to the relaxation element of this hotel).

For a landscape hotel, the landscaping could have actually used some work... I understand that they are trying to maintain a natural look but the paths walking down to the restaurant were a little rough looking. The soil around the paths is weird a clumpy and the plants are just not planted as beautifully as they should be.

The thing that left the worst taste in our mouths about this hotel is that they switched our booking. We had booked this hotel about four months ago and a week before our stay at this hotel they said that they would be closing for maintenance one of the nights that we were staying there. It was hard to communicate with them via email, they were not as responsive as other hotels we had stayed at which was frustrating when we were frantically trying to make arrangements for the night that we were going to be without a hotel! They did end up switching our hotel and making it work out for us and upgraded us to a very nice room at another hotel the night that they could not have us. We did see that they were hosting a convention for Audi the night that they told us they would be closed for maintenance so that was a little weird too.

The two towns that are within walking distance (Guadalest and Benimantell) are worth walking to! Guadalest is beautiful and historic. There is a castle that can only be entered by walking through a tunnel!

There is a water reservoir that can be hiked to as well with the bluest water you have ever seen, definitely worth walking down to as well.

I do believe that this place will get their kinks worked out and I do look forward to coming back for another stay, I just hope they make the rooms a little more clean and that the landscaping is a little nicer and that the communication is a little better!

Not worth it

OK the landscapes are pretty amazing, that's everything worth the trip to Vivood.
Nothing is at the level of the 'organic luxury' there are claiming.From the service, slow and quite clumsy, to the disgusting breakfast , white untoasted 'bread for ducks', they forgot the coffees, cheap ham, poor presentation...to the fact the Spa was not opened yet and they did not advise us when we did the booking...there is a LOT of work to make this place worth the price they charge.The restaurant food is quite good though.Another thing, very annoyingly the room had a lot of failures including the shower door that was dangerously broken, we asked 3 times for someone to fix it and they did not, all they did is blocking it with a piece of plastic that fell on my head the following morning.We will not return or recommend it.

A little bit of heaven

Our stay at Vivood was a birthday gift from my family, and was certainly a new experience, We have never stayed in a hotel like this before and it did not disappoint. Everything about our stay was perfect, the setting is tranquil the suites are unique and the food in the restaurant was amazing. What more could you ask for.

A room with a view
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

Never was a review title more apt; The stunning scenery of this mountain retreat and the stylish concept accommodation which is expertly positioned within it, sit perfectly together. If you’re looking for a private and relaxing break in the most beautiful natural setting then this ticks all the boxes.
The staff are friendly and attentive but never intrusive and all meals were good to very good with generous portions and presented with the minimum of fuss. Pictured is the poolside Sandwich Vivood which was enough for 2 to share!
The hotel is set in a large plot with a steepish path through trees and cliffs (need walking shoes) down to a large reservoir which is almost turquoise and has a level path that leads eventually to a dam. You can take a circular route back to the hotel via Gaudalest which is a historic village with breathtaking views and interesting tours including the old manor house and castle.
This concept hotel has most things spot on and the new Spa will be a very welcome addition which I very much look forward to trying out on my next visit.

Can’t wait!!!
