Like many of the hacienda hotels in Mexico, San Jose takes you back in time. But with all the modern conveniences. There are several unique options for couples including dinner surrounded by candles under a large tree, or a private hot tub decorated with flowers.

This hacienda makes you feel like you have stepped back to a much simpler time. The rooms are beautiful and well preserved. There is a private bath behind the room where you can have a candle lit bath while listening to nature. My husband and I had stone massages, which was one of the best I have had in my... More

My husband and I just spent four nights in the real Mexico at this beautifully restored hacienda. It is remote so be prepared to wake up to the birds and nothing else. About a 3 hour drive west of Cancun but fairly easy to find off a major toll road drive 2/3rds of the way. Sleep in your hammock the... More

Hacienda San Jose was a delightful experience. It is a vacation that is meant for those who wish peace and serenity, and it is shared by the other the other four Starwood Haciendas which we visited--Temozon, Santa Rosa, and Uayamon.

Staying at Hacienda San Jose should be a once-in-a-lifetime experience, but I loved it so much when I first visited in 2012 that I returned this month! Everything about the experience is spectacular. The grounds are lush, tropical, and incredibly beautiful. The hacienda offers a great (and complimentary) bird-watching program each morning and it's a good way to explore the... More
