Yes, it is a beautiful place, but it's basically made up for tourists, and big groups arrive during the whole day. It's ok for a quick picture and maybe a sneak in the handcrafts shop if it's your first time in Mexico, but it's really quite expensive and not very real.

We had a pretty good early dinner here, from the a la carte menu as the buffet was finished. We had sopa de lima (lime-flavoured chicken broth with shredded chicken and tortilla croutons), plus a platter of local food, including a couple of very good things, like pollo and cochinita pibil (chicken / pork cooked in a rich orangey sauce) and panuchos (small tortillas topped with turkey, salsa and avocado), along with a couple of inedible things, like stuffed cheese (like a terrible microwave lasagne without the pasta sheets!). Portions were ridiculously huge, and everything was swimming in oil, but the atmosphere was nice in the courtyard by the fountain, and it was fairly priced. All together not bad.

Dear visitor,

We are very glad to read that you enjoyed your meal at La Casona.

We´d like to share with you that some typical Yucatan dishes, like Pollo Pibil and Cochinita Pibil, are prepared on a sour orange juice base, what might seem like oil but it is not. Besides, fried food, that is very typical too, is cooked with low fat oil. We are very committed with your health, and procure to deliver the most healthy food.

We hope you visit us again soon.

After a wonderful tour of Chichen Izta we were amazed at this town and all its history. The food here is just amazing, so fresh and very pleasantly soothing. The atmoshphere is untouchable,
cool breeze flowing through the place. And to get treated to some extras at the nice little shops.
It was the best and last part of our tour. Wish it would not end. Staff is very, very, nice, my best
Gracias to the staff and manager Maria. Hola to Raul too. Your the best guide and hope to see
all of you on my next trip to beautiful La Casona De Valladolid. Mucho gracias again till we meet.

But why does it close at 7?! We went at 6pm for early dinner but the place was deserted. Great service and lovely food and still really enjoyed the ambience.
