But then Harald's Christmas night schnitzel (Sonia was resting--and so she should have been!) was a knockout. We ate all our evening meals (and breakfasts) here and I am so glad we did.

We always bring our groups regularly to this wonderful restaurant for our special farewell dinners. The 3 course dinners are always delicious, and we can arrange for vegetarian dishes. The setting by the pool is beautiful.

We stayed at the Hacienda Hotel for 5 nights and chose to eat dinner there every night. The food was delicious, well prepared, fresh and of the highest quality. We were served 3 courses, and the value for such a meal was unbeatable. This restaurant deserves 5 stars!

Wonderful oasis of peace on the outskirts of Itzmul. lovely clean comfortable rooms in secluded surroundings.very rural and quite like a safari lodge. Great hosts in Harald and Sonja who were very welcoming and helpful,great place to spend a while away from the crowds and sights. We loved it and would highly recommend spending 2/3 nights.
