My husband and I stayed for three nights as part of our honeymoon and this has been the highlight so far. The hotel is extremely remote and the website directions aren't great so we used our iPhone gps. It is beautifully authentic with staff that couldn't do more for you. The staff have been there for 5-10 years and are... More

We moved here after our Havienda Temazon fiasco. Great choice. Great service beyond our means, good food quiet almost too quiet. Couples massage was great, pool great. The grounds where great to wonder around. Only 15 rooms and only 5 in use while our visit and half from Temazon move. If u want peace and quiet or a romantic few... More

If you can't afford the megabucks to stay here, do yourself a favor and visit. Walk the grounds, eat at the restaurant or have a drink. Pleasant beyond your imagination and the hired help are courteous, friendly and helpful. Not to be missed!

Grounds are absolutely spectacular! Relax and slow down here, it's beautiful -- the foliage is lush, dense and the upkeep is just fantastic. On the flip side, the service could be improved. Dining staff is very friendly, but very slow. Same goes for ordering food to the pool... slow. The menus cater more to tourists and misses opportunity to feature... More

This was our first stop in Mexico and although a long drive from Cancun airport it was the ideal place to start our holiday and recharge the batteries. The Hacienda is set in a beautiful location tucked away in what was once a sisal plantation. The buildings have been sympathetically restored and furnished simply and tastefully to reflect how it...

This is one of the most beautiful settings I've been in. Gorgeous, perfectly maintained gardens. Lovely buildings scattered through the gardens, all painted brilliant colors. The most amazing pool I've been to, with the exception of the Cipriani in Italy. It's not heated, but perfect on a hot day. Birds everywhere. We were the only people at the hotel on... More

I have never stayed anywhere like this place. This is luxury at its finest - simple, eco-friendly, private, and natural. It felt like we were alone the whole time even though there were surely others on the property.

Finding this hacienda might prove challenging. It is tucked away close to Izamal and Merida. For those "collecting" Mayan ruins the Aké site is a mere 10 minutes In a former life the hacienda was a sisal factory and the grounds are dotted with remnants of this existence. A tallish chimney stands behind the bar and restaurant. The grounds are... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hacienda San Jose is an emblematic building erected in the 18th century that, even after undergoing restoration, preserves the pastel blues of its facade, its decoration, and the murals in the chapel. Located just a 45 minute drive from Mérida’s International Airport, this place is perfect as a starting off point to visit other sceneries such as the Balancanche caves, Izamal or the mythical Pyramids of Chichén Itzá. Lavender blue colors are all around the corners of Hacienda San Jose. Its 15 rooms and suites, spread around a colonial patio with captivating ambience, will take you back in time to the past but with the amenities of this century. The former vegetables garden of the old residence is currently a site for a fantastic pool and Jacuzzi that, along with the surrounding Mayan palapas, present guests with a unique life experience. ... more   less
