I am recommending this place albeit with a number of reservations about it. Felt it didn't meet the service and quality standards it should have given the prices:
Pros: historic 16th-17th century hacienda with smaller casitas around the grounds for guests. Atmospheric, intimate, relaxed setting,...More
We just returned from a five night stay at the Hacienda Chichen just a short walk from the magnificent Mayan Ruins of Chichen Itza. As the crowded buses drove in and out and all around us...we ate delicious meals on the hotel terrace, swam in...More
I have already reviewed this Hacienda, and wanted to add some new advise.. book a honeymoon room or better... it was a HUGE upgrade from the next level down.
the food is OK, and indeed pricey, but of all of the area accommodations, Hacienda Chichen...More
Based on previous reviewers comments, we booked just one night at Hacienda Chichen (so that we could wake up early the next morning for that much recommended 8am start) and had fairly low expectations of our stay.
Arriving in the late afternoon, check in was...More
We enjoyed our overnight here, and thought it a perfect, if pricy, place from which to visit the ruins. The rooms are in bungalows scattered around beautiful tropical gardens, each with a patio and hammock. The rooms are quite simple, but we found the beds...More

Not much to add here; the back entrance is a walk through from the gardens to the right from the hotel and you arrive (after a while) behind one of the pyramids i.e. free entry! I had just gone for a walk so it was a surprise-8am, no stalls or people about. The pool is about 20m rectangular and the best we came across in our tour. Don't stay in a basic room-they are what they say i.e. basic and lack fridge/coffee making and bath. We actually found some of the staff unhelpful and our dinner was spoilt by pressure to tip and annoying serenading, again for money. Breakfast is to order i.e. no buffet and limited. Overall though a great location, pretty, photogenic hacienda, lovely grounds with iguana and birds and good pool.

My family (my husband and myself, two adult children & their friend) stayed at Hacienda Chichen in December 2015. We didn't have any issues with communication; the hotel was prompt with information and rates. We reserved two rooms that each had two double beds in them that were in the same building, which worked fine. As I remember, these are called "cottages," but are really just rooms. I can't remember if there were any real cottages w/multiple rooms in them. Rooms are fine but spare, restaurant is OK but expensive, the grounds are nice, as is the pool. The real bonus to staying there is getting in the back door to the ruins and not fighting car or people traffic if you go first thing in the morning.
