Only stayed 1 night as we wanted an early start for Chichen. Our room was beautiful (the red room), the whole place is fabulous and Denis is a top bloke and helpful with recommendations for restaurants etc. Valladolid's a lovely town for an overnight stay too and it was only about 30 mins drive to the ruins the next day which meant we got there at opening time and missed the busy period.

Denis has made his guesthouse very welcoming. The physical space and amenities are lovely but what really sets the place part is Denis' pride in this part of Mexico and what it has to offer. He patiently asked what we wanted to do and helped us with directions and suggestions. He can recommend restaurants in every price range and will tell you want portion of the Chichen Itza site you can skip. When he tells you not to miss the private house which opens for visitors to see its Mexican art collection follow his good advice. Be sure to try and stay more than one night so you have a chance to see more than just Chichen itza. We enjoyed having a drink in one of the restaurants on the side of the main square in town and listening the the band of drums and trumpets practice. We ate fruit ices from one of the several shops which dot the square and wished we had room to taste all of the varieties. We look forward to going back, Denis told us he has cooking classes and other suggestions of things to do that we missed.

Casa Hamaca is an intimate guesthouse set behind a dense garden just off of San Juan Parque. Clean, spacious, well-appointed, Mayan - themed rooms and common areas make for a relaxing retreat. The resident owner Denis is a gracious and helpful host. Vallidolid offers more than just a sleepover near the ruins, and Casa Hamaca was an excellent base for our three night stay.

Denis, at Casa Hamaca B & B has done a wonderful job providing a comfortable B & B a few blocks from the center of Valladolid, Mexico. The rooms are large and provided with comfortable beds places to put your travel belongings. The breakfast is excellent. There are opportunities to share travel experiences with Denis and other clients of the B & B. His staff has been well prepared in helping the guests of the B & B.

The place reminded me of the main advantage of guest houses over hotels - the people. Conversation with Denis and other guests was very interesting, and the place just has a great atmosphere.
The rooms are nice and well equipped, breakfast is tasty (great fruits, good eggs), the garden is beautiful, the staff is very helpful.
The mattress is excellent.

The location is great, just a few blocks from the main square. The house is beautiful and quiet, across from a park and set off the street by a lovely garden. Denis, the proprietor, is a really nice guy. He arranged our transportation to and from the airport. As soon as we arrived he made us feel right at home, introducing us to other guests and friends. Breakfasts were delicious; Mexican-style eggs along with granola and yogurt and plenty of fresh fruit and juice. Coffee was available at 6am, what a treat to drink it by the pool in the garden, listening to the birds. On Sunday Denis took us to the market and ordered some yummy food that we might not have discovered on our own. Then he showed me a good place to by a bowl that I wanted. What a nice guy! All in all—we had a great experience and would love to go back.

Casa Hamaca is a friendly, quiet and comfortable bed and breakfast. The rooms are beautiful, the bed immensely comfortable, and the bathrooms are gorgeous. The building and small lush gardens are pretty and the atmosphere is generally relaxed. There is an awesome breakfast first thing in the morning, and the staff are attentive and friendly. Many people would love this place and I certainly enjoyed almost every aspect of it. My only complaint is that I had no idea that it was really a bed and breakfast rather than a hotel. Dennis, who runs the place and is really nice, took the opportunity to chat with us at length when we arrived and sit with us and chat at breakfast. The other guests joined in and it was a real community atmosphere. Unfortunately, because I travel so much (mostly business) and meet so many people, the one thing I like is the sanctity of peace, privacy and anonymity in the hotels where I stay. I'm throwing this out there for other travelers like myself. For those of you who don't mind this, this really is an awesome place.
