Turning up at the Lodge is was very different from expected. A big structure among green vegetation overlooking one of the Mayan observatories in the distance, with the tallest palm trees ever seen wafting outside in the wind, like welcoming flag poles. It felt a little bohemian. The main building, a white structure, looked quite plain from the outside but... More

Very authentic, very unique! Glad I found this place on our recent visit (December 16-18). Beautiful rustic private bungalows, with almost private pools, hammocks, and lush lush landscaping! You will wake up to chirping birds, and at night the sky is so clear you can see all stars. Also,a free light and sound show every day. The restaurant is great... More

On our visit to Cancun Mexico, we decided to visit the ruins at Chichen Itza and found that this gorgeous property is just outside the ruins. There is the main Hotel which was once a hacienda with lush gardens and beautifully carved porticos and balconies. We booked one of their bungalows which are scattered throughout the beautifully landscaped property. They... More

We were pleased with our bungalow at in the Lodge at Chichen Itza. It was close to one of the resort's three swimming pools and the bed was comfortable. The resort grounds were quite nice and service was generally helpful and attentive. Food in the restaurants was OK. We were prepared for no wifi in our rooms, but we were... More

With one exception, i do not have much to add to the other reviews. The location is great. The rooms are okay, nothing special but not bad. The food we (my wife,daughter, daughter's boyfriend and I) thought was surprisingly good, both at the pool side grill and (really surprisingly) at the lunchtime buffet. There is no Wifi in the bungalows... More

Thanks for your visit. Your interesting review has a short answer: The Lodge DOES NOT ACCEPT GROUPS. The Mayaland does. The bungalows at the Mayaland where originally built in the 1920's. Smaller, with narrower terraces than those at the Lodge, built from 1995 through 2000. Both hotels are owned and operated by the Barbachano family, Mexico's tourism pioneers. Five generations...

We stayed in the bungalows in the grounds, the room was clean and comfortable although service was rather slow at times. The planetarium show was excellent and worthwhile. Being able to access the Chichen Itza site through a private gate, without having to deal with hoardes at the main gate was a definate plus. Get into the park early...

The road that Mayans took to Chichen Itza runs through the property and so does the magic of the neighboring site. We enjoyed the on-site planetarium show. The view of the observatory at sunset, from the front of the old hacienda, was a breathtaking surprise. The bungalows with lofts were ideal for my children to romp in. The sounds of... More

Thanks for visiting Chichen Itza and staying inside the park, in it's heart, at our Lodge. Your visit takes place in the time of the year when our leaves fall (a couple of months after they do further north). We hand sweep our pool twice a day. Our filtered pools (all 3 main pools) work extra time during this period... More

It has been a couple of years and I still can't get this place out of my thoughts. Probably this is because of my phone screen saver which shows me-completely alone- gazing at the pyramid. Good luck accomplishing this photo if you stay anywhere else! You can be the first people at the site and the last to leave in... More
