This is a beautiful hacienda just off the ring road of Merida. It's peaceful and quiet and as soon as we arrived the owner welcomed us as if we were old friends. The food is outstanding, the bedrooms are gorgeous (we stayed in the room next to the chapel). The swimming pool was stunning although we had forgotten that there... More

We - 2 adults/2 kids - spent 4 wonderful days at Hacienda Santa Cruz. A gem - hidden or not. Lovely and evocative setting, tastefully restored. Relaxing with all you would need - wonderful rooms, attractive pool, places to read, relax, play chess, have a margarita and (if you must) quietly check your email from back home. As close to...

We stayed three nights at the Hacienda this past February and found the property to be very lovely: the hacienda has been thoughtfully restored and there is interesting artwork everywhere. Our room was spacious and comfortable. We especially loved the restaurant and found chef Paul Ramirez's menu offerings to be both inventive and well prepared. The neighborhood is not paricularly...

We stayed one night at the Hacienda on the last day of a week-long trip to Mexico. The property and decor are quite stunning. We had a great time wandering around the grounds and old buildings and soaking in their beautiful pool by the spa (one of two). We were also quite happy with our room, which was large, with... More

It is 15 min drive form airport and 35-40 min from downtown. We found the hacienda very nice but when we wanted to arrange some changes and stay a few more hours the director wouldn't give in at any price and wanted a full night for couple more hours eventhough they didn't have the room booked after us. After discussing... More
