“Treat Yourself”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

A pristine paradise right outside the entrance to historic site of Uxmal. The grounds are well maintained, clean, and the pools terrific. In fact, it is picture perfect. We stayed 2 nights and really enjoyed not only the property, but the historic site as well. There is really nothing close by that compares. The food is good, but the overall experience makes everything wonderful. Would highly recommend! If we were ever to be in that part of the world again, or have friends and family that visit, The Lodge would be the place to stay.

We stayed here for 4 nights in January. We had a suite which had an upstairs bedroom with dinky little wooden steps up to it. Jacuzzi in the bathroom with two showers. Balcony with hammock. Views over a second pool, that is not the main one. We had an all inclusive tariff which meant we could help ourselves to the mini bar in the room.

We stayed here as part of a tour of the Yucatan. It is so convenient to visit the ruins of Uxmal as it is within the grounds and only a short walk to the entrance.

Food. Excellent. Huge choice, beautifully cooked. The staff couldn't do enough for us. The head waiter did us a candlelight dinner by the pool on our last night and we had salmon with chocolate, which may sound odd but was totally delicious.

Reception is an outdoor affair, surrounded by metal artworks. The whole place is just jaw dropping. Take at least two nights if you come here. As it was the beginning of January it was very quiet and the people who had booked the Hacienda just down the road were relocated to the Lodge into normal rooms without the all-inclusive tariff.

Room Tip: The suites are obviously nicer but the steps might be a problem for some people.

Stayed there for 1 night in Oct 12 with a friend
I would put 6 stars if I could, this place is simply AMAZING! The most relaxing hotel I have ever stayed in, rooms are huge and amazing, we had a jacuzzi in the bathroom!!! There are 2 giant pools, the hotel is in the middle of the forest, right in front of the ruins... The staff is so nice and helpful (especially Christian in the restaurant). I would go back there without any hesitation!

I spent 3 days at the Lodge last September and was so glad I did!

If you're a woman traveling alone finding accommodations that make you feel comfortable and at ease is not always easy to do. The staff was more than gracious, the room with it's palapa roof, beautiful and the proximity to the ruins very convenient.

I've travelled through the Yucatan peninsula for over 25 years and find that once you've ventured away from Cancun and Playa del Carmen, you experience the real heart and soul of the area. Don't let the media keep you away from exploring this beautiful area and lovely hotel.

A side note...I wanted to purchase a good quality hammock and a young lady at the hotel suggested I see her mother in Muna. Found a beautifully crafted one for $50 USD. Considering they take about 40 days to make, I think it was very well priced.

Get off the beaten path and spend a few days at The Lodge at Uxmal...you won't regret it!

Your review is one of the most meaningful reviews we have ever had the pleasure of receiving!
That as a single woman, traveling solo, you felt so safe is a testament to the peaceful and loving people of Yucatan, and I am very grateful that you wrote it and shared with the world's traveling community. Than You for helping change the bad image some of the press, ignorant as to Yucatan;s location as it relates to Mexico, have given the entire country, who;s drug related violence is thousands of miles away from us.

...And yes, thank you for everything you mention about your stay with us as well. The Lodge at Uxmal is truly a unique, peaceful enclave in the very heart of Uxmal, the most beautiful mayan temples on earth.

We look forward to having you with us again. Until then, safe and happy travels!

At the moment the Lodge is the only hotel open right near the ruins. The sister hotel, the Hacienda, is closed most of time for lack of guests evidently, so if you book there you instead stay at the Lodge, which is an upgrade in location. villa Archeolgica is closed. Given how fancy the Lodge is, my AC didn't work, and they had issues with water to the room, which ran intermittently. I agree with a prior post about charging for potable water - this was one of the most expensive places I stayed, yet only one that charged for water. Cheaper to buy water at the ruins. They have lovely verandas and nice hammocks, and the pool is welcome. Location is awesome - right next to ruins, which you can see from some rooms. Nice staff. PS palapa restaurants on main road just N of Hacienda are tasty and nice.

The Lodge at Uxmal is a gem! Reception was quick, easy and outdoors! When the staff heard that we were celebrating our 40th anniversary, we were surprised with a heart made of rose petals on our bed and a private candlelit dinner by poolside. Both William, the head waiter, and the chef reviewed our dinner menu the day before with us. It was a beautiful evening and the food and the service was delicious! Our server, Alba, was the best! she brought each course and explained the menu. That evening was truly special!!
Our room [1-A] was big & beautiful. It came with a private bathroom, king-size bed, flat screen tv and air conditioning.
Our room also included a table that could seat four.

Meals at the Lodge at Uxmal were excellent! William, and the dining staff [including Fredy , Oscar, & Alba] were courteous, informative and nice to talk to. Most staff were multilingual. My wife is fluent in Spanish and I do not speak Spanish. The staff explained dishes to us and made suggestions on native foods.
The staff was easy to converse with. My wife had extensive discussions, in Spanish & English, with staff members, many of whom are of Mayan descent.

The Lodge at Uxmal is literally across the road from the UNESCO World Heritage site of Mayan structures. You can't beat this location!

Room Tip: Rooms 1A-D face a pool

A truly conscious resort! For the traveler that is seeking for spirituality, great food, GREAT location, romanticism and adventure!

Last November 2012, we guided a Kundalini Yoga group lead by Harijiwan to The Lodge at Uxmal.
The Lodge's privilege location, just a few steps from the pyramid of the Magician; the wonderful Mayan hospitality, the incredible service, from the sales department (Wilma and Marina), the manager Bersain Velazquez, the Chef, the amazing waiters, the Concierge Laura and the tour guide Jorge are beyond expectations, full of magic, love and professionalism.
We will definitely bring more groups this 2013.
