We just came back for a 3 weeks stay at Hotel Yakunah in Progreso.
We have been there several times, and every time we come we are more impressed.
The Hotel is located in a charming traditional Mexican beach house and the ‘old days feel’ is combined with modern amenities and an exquisite upkeep of the public areas, gardens and rooms. We stayed in one of the rooms on the first floor. These rooms are very spacious and artfully decorated. Although I had some different experiences with other hotels in the area, the rooms are kept spotless at all times.
The garden is well designed and the pool is the perfect place to relax with a good book.
The biggest amenity of this hotel are the owners Gerben, Elke and their daughter Michelle. They make you feel that you are long lost family from the moment you walk in the place.
Elke is a charming host and make some mean cocktails, ( try her specials with 43, she is the expert in this field) . Gerben is an excellent chef. Since we were around in the low season he was able to customize most of our meals and they all were absolute delicious. We were lucky to witness a ‘mini concert’ of Michelle teenage daughter who has an exceptional voice.
I would highly recommend this place the traveler that expects a level of luxury for a very fair price, and prefers the personal touch and service over the often very impersonal larger chain hotels
