We learned all about the history and production of Henequen, as well as a little about Mezcal, & Tequila. Is tour walks you through the plantation and how the Henequen is harvested and developed into rope. You also get a touch of Mayan culture and get to swim the best cenote in the world! And…. We now know Every tequila is a Mezcal but not every Mezcal is a tequila!

We chose the ten am tour and were fortunate to go on a cooler day. It would probably be quite hot there in the spring and summer. What a lovely property! Our tour guide, Juan, spoke perfect English and was informative throughout the tour. There is a lot of walking and stairs up into the hacienda museum, so it may be difficult for people with problems walking or using canes. We really enjoyed the history of the hacienda and then learning about the henequen production. Not only do they demonstrate all aspects of the henequen production as it was originally done totally by hand, they also walk you through the machine production, demonstrating how many of the machines work. Then you hop aboard a “truck” pulled by a mule for a trip through the henequen fields, arriving at an old Maya house to meet an elderly man who has worked at the hacienda since his youth. Then on the truck to a lovely blue water sparkling cenote underground for an hour long swim or rest. For those not interested in the cenote, there is a bar for drinks and several areas to sit and relax. The cenote was relaxing and refreshing, not too cold! One you are floating inside, it looks much larger than from the stairs to enter the cave. It was a wonderful tour and we would definitely go back again!

This schedule worked really well for an overnight stay: We booked a 1pm tour, so arrived about 12:30 so we could eat light sandwiches we brought with us. We had our cenote-swimming bag ready to go too. (You do have to haul that around as you walk the tour, so keep it light.) Tour is excellent and the cenote wonderful as others have said. Back to the casita for cocktails (there's a tiny fridge so BYOB), a break and a walk around the beautiful grounds. Dinner was very nice, but take note: it was a fixed-price (about 400 MXN each) with one choice of salad, one of soup, two main courses, and 4 desserts. All were excellent but the small selection surprised us. Perhaps there are more choices at peak seasons; I don't know. A quiet night in the casita (this is not a place with lots to do!). Someone else mentioned the loud air conditioner and I'll confirm that; it's like the contractor installed industrial units designed for offices. Bring ear plugs; you'll be fine. The main pool is VAST. Photos taken with wide-angle lenses always make pools look bigger, so look at a satellite picture. Two big end sections are shallow for kids; big center section is DEEP. Someone wrote there's nowhere to drive to for sightseeing; you're not far from Ticul (town of shoes and pottery) and the Pu'uc and Convent Routes. But mainly Sotuta is a place to get away from everything.

Very cool experience. A little too expensive- definitely charging gringo prices so that took away from the experience. We loved the cenotes, so definitely bring a bathing suit. And non slip shoes because it’s very steep going down! There’s also nowhere to buy drinks until u get to the cenote, so bring water.

This tour of a an actual 160 year old working sisal hacienda was a wonderful Experience , a must see , the centre to swim in at the end of the tour is most refreshing . Ivan was our guide and he did a wonderful job of explaining and answering questions in both Spanish and English . We found it difficult to drive to And find tho , better driving directions and GPS coordinates on the advertisements and website would be a great addition

Wonderful tour by knowledgeable interpreter. It was nice to see old hacienda and how sisal is made from agave plant on machinery that’s over 100 yrs old. The restaurant had wonderful food. We all enjoyed our time here.

This was our one high end selection on a 2+ week vacation to Campeche/Yucatan. We had our own luxurious cabin with great bed, our own pool, coffee of course, and all the other usual amenities. But there were two issues: the noise outside beginning about 7 am and from one of the two restaurants until very very late (I suppose about midnight); and no TV. I understand the concept, but for that money I want my TV. And besides, there is nothing to do nearby if we were to go for a drive. But it was a nice spa-like experience. My wife had a half hour massage, which she liked. The tour of the old henequen / sisal facility was the main reason for the visit and it did not disappoint. I wanted to learn about the history of the industry and I got a lot out of it. The lunch at the end of the tour was great, reasonable priced believe it or not, and if I was a local would dine there periodically. The tour was three hours, and ended with an hour at a wonderful cenote where we had the option of swimming and/or hanging out at a bar outside and/or the massage. It don't think I would come back if in the area again .... unless of course they supply me with a TV and do something about the noise.

The first thing you'll find in this hotel is a frond desk staff trying to race the hotel fair. The second thing you will find in this hotel's rooms is a noise a/c that will make you feel like you are sleeping cheap motel. Also you will find bored people at the hotel bar because there are not many guest or things to do around. It is hard to arrive here from Merida going through many little ugly towns and narrow roads. The scenery is pretty enough but if feels to arranged for tourist (not the hacienda experience I was expecting). In other words, you can find more interesting things than this and the relation price/quality will disappoint you.

This place is amazing, it just is. Everything is beautiful and maintained to a brand-spankin new, super sparkly clean shine in every way. The reception, grounds, restaurants, hacienda, and cenote, were all beautiful and spotless. We stayed in a superior room which is actually a darling private cabana with palapa roof. The "rooms" are huge and beautifully decorated. I LOVED our room. The shower is a small room in itself as is the water closet. There is ample closet/storage space, a desk and refrigerator. Our room was VERY comfortable despite the sweltering heat outside. I did not even notice if there was a television! My only disappointment with the room was that the bathroom lighting was inadequate for putting on make-up. We had a small private pool and patio that was very private. The grounds are expansive with walkways throughout. The Hacienda also hosts a tour of historic sisal factory where a type of agave is turned into twine and ropes. The tour is quite interesting and includes a stop to view the original hacienda. It ends at the cenote where you have an opportunity to go for a swim in the crystal clear blue water. There are small gauge rail tracks running throughout the property on which mule-drawn carts take you on the tour. We had breakfast at one of the restaurants daily and it was pretty good, however, we had a great lunch of cochinita pibil. Horseback riding is available for a nominal fee and, as an equestrian, and I am happy to report that the horses available were not only beautiful, but also very quiet and very healthy, quarter horses.

I have been about 4 times in Sotuta de Peon, with friends, guest and family. This visit really takes you back to the late 18 hundreds and early 19 hundreds. The glamour of the so called "green gold", the Sisal fiber. You will see and experience first hand all the process of obtaining the sisal fiber from the agave until it is shipped to Europe in huge bales or converted into strong ropes for personal and industrial purposes. After this unforgettable experience you will have the opportunity to plunge in a beautiful cenote - sink hole - and enjoy a shot of tequila. The food in its restaurant is a very good typical Yucatan menu. Please don't hesitate to try it out. It is delicious.
