Hotel Hacienda Uxmal has a very special atmosphere, generated by its careful design and very friendly and attentive staff. A refreshing welcome drink was provided on our arrival and our luggage was dealt with very promptly then and on our departure.
Rooms open onto the cloister-like courtyard, in the centre of which are a good-sized swimming pool, a lily pond, grass, a variety of trees, and many attractive birds. Nearby is a palm thatched open sided terrace, where one can while time away relaxing in one of the hammocks.
The floors are covered in colourful mosaic tiles and the furniture is made of local wood, giving a lovely old-fashioned feel to the high ceilinged rooms. Bedrooms have both air-conditioning and fans, and a delightful touch is the crafting of towels - swans, bears and rabbits - and the strewing of flower petals around the bath.
The hotel has hosted many dignitaries in the past, including royalty, presidents, archaeologists and celebrities, and outside each bedroom is a plaque giving details of the room's most distinguished guest.
The menu has a wide range of choices, with plenty of Mexican dishes, and the standard is very high. The staff were happy to accommodate our 'split meal', so that we could go to the Son et Lumiere at the Uxmal ruins, before enjoying dessert.
Our only disappointment was that we could not stay longer.
