I stumbled upon this hotel from a trek in the dusty countryside about 8 years ago. It was truly an oasis in the Yucatan. I have returned many times with students, work colleagues, family and friends and intend to do so again. On one occasion, we happened to be in the area without a reservation and the front gate was locked. We went around back (it was off season) and they opened the hotel for my student and myself...we had the whole place to ourselves and they were apologetic for not having everything up to par and having to cook whatever they had on hand (with help from the villagers) UNBELIEVABLY hospitable, warm, caring and spectacular setting...almost afraid to write this as the tranquility is a welcome change from other types of holidays. Having said that, you must be prepared for it being isolated, in a village with the usual village noises that are unavoidable and nothing else around for miles..
