“Beyond Words”
Reviewed October 27, 2011

Almost no place I have ever stayed matches the pictures you see on their web-site, Hacienda Uayamon (why-a-mon) is the exception. This place is a jewel in Starwood's crown. Both my wife and I agreed that this was the most fantastic property we have ever stayed. I love historical architecture, so it is possible that I am biased. We were the only couple there for our 3 day stay, as such we felt like we owned a 200 year old colonial plantation.

The staff was incredibly gracious. Most of them were locals. One of the missions of the Haciendas in the Yucatan is to provide quality jobs for the locals. We ate on site every day (breakfast and dinner), both meals were so large that lunch was not necessary. The quality of the food and service was well worth the money. We also had a couples "relaxing" massage, which was heavenly. I opted against the Mayan massage based on other reviews.

Some of the other reviews identified issues with mosquitos. I have been to a Costa Rican jungle resort that was pretty bad, so I was expecting to lather myself in bug spray. However in Uayamon I did not find them to be any worse than at home. During feeding hours (morning and afternoon) they were out in the wooded areas of the property, but that was it.

The restoration work they did was first class and very innovative, especially the pool area. We stayed in the Colonial Suite (upgraded), which was the former charity hospital, built in 1905. It had an outdoor tub and pergola with a day bed. Most of the other rooms appeared to have the pergola. All of the rooms were secluded and private, which allowed us to enjoy the outdoor living pace at all hours. The rooms were lavishly furnished.

We flew into Cancun because they have much cheaper flights from the US. We spent the first night in Cancun, then drove the 6 hours to Uayamon the next morning. The drive was not bad, there are ruins that can be seen enroute if you leave early enough and you can also stop in Merida for lunch. They have a nice historic center. I drove a rental car and had no issues driving. It is interstate or highway (180) most of the way from Cancun to Campeche. Every large town had police check points at the entrance roads. We never felt unsafe and traveled by ourselves. You MUST go see Edzna, which is only 30 minutes from the property. Uxmal is 3 hours away, we did this on the way back to Cancun. Campeche’s historic center is only a 30 minute drive. The resort offers guided tours through a company called Catherwood Travels. You should do some research on them before going at catherwoodtravels.com. The resort’s staff speaks English, but more complex conversations, such as understanding touring options and pricing can be difficult.
On-line directions to the resort are so-so, but we finally found it. You do not want to attempt this in the dark. My GPS took me into the town of China, which was out of route. There is a road right off 180 that leads to Uayamon, a few hundred feet north of the China exit. There is a small state sign, saying Hda. Uayamon and Edzna marking this road, but it is in overgrown weeds. Once you are on the road to Uayamon, the signage gets much better.

I can't say enough good thinks about Hacienda Uayamon. I just wish I

We went to this hotel for our annivesary. It was a great experience. Be warned, it is a bit far from the city, so there is nothing in walking distance. If you want a nice, relaxing location, THIS IS IT! The restaurant was very good, the scenic setting was romantic, and the rooms were absolutely wonderful. This is, by far, the best hotel I have ever stayed at in Mexico.

This property has a very special character, difficult to describe with conventional hotel terms. Somehow a mixture between Transylvanian mysticism and a secluded safari lodge.

The hotel consists of small houses (2 Suites and 10 regular houses) in the middle of a forest and a historical building complex where terrace restaurant and the pool is located. Houses are spacious, well decorated and comfortable. Outdoor pool is petite but well fitted in the overall design. The Chapel ruin, lit by night, gives another authentic note.

Had good food at their petite terrace restaurant (classic case of a natural monopoly); the heat however took some of the enjoyment; we commented that additional ventilation would be helpful.

Uayamon can be perfectly combined with one of the other surrounding Starwood Haciendas. We did 2 days Temozon and afterwards 2 days Uayamon, which was a perfect combination.

Like Temozon, Uayamon has no gym, which is a pitty. At least, we did a bird-watching tour with a hotel guide, however the birds somehow boycotted the show. We loved to have our breakfast under the massive old tree next to the outdoor pool.

Final note: During our 2 days stay, a wild young cat with a friendly character was a frequent visitor to our house and the restaurant section. Unfortunately some local Mexican gueste felt threatened by the cat and forced the waiters to chase her out, which almost broke our heart. Therefore, only animal-loving visitors should be accepted on this intriguing property. However, guests should also be aware that spiders and even scorpions can appear in the houses and the pool area.

My wife and I enjoyed peace, quiet and relaxation at a new level; the shamanic massage was a life changing experience; rooms were private and romantic; food was excellent, slightly pricey; grounds were historcially very intriquing; loved the old hacienda experience amidst elegant appointments. Spa Manager, Reto Kade, was an exceptional personage and skilled masseuce-best massage I have ever had - not for the faint of heart.
