“The best hotel in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2010

If you're traveling to Progreso, there's only one place to stay and this is it. Quaint , friendly... your hosts are wonderful. It has more of a B&B vibe then a hotel. Don't miss Gerben's breakfast. Just a short walk to the restaurants and market, but far enough that it's quiet. We will be back!

My husband and I originally planned to stay in Chelem, but the property we had booked was, shall we say, not quite up to par. After the first night, we frantically went online to see if we could find someplace comfortable and reasonably priced close by. The TripAdvisor reviews for Hotel Yakunah gave us hope, and we were thrilled to get their last available room for the weekend during peak season.

Our stay at Yakunah was FANTASTIC. Elke, one of the owners, speaks fluent English and has a delightful wit. She's adorable. Her husband, Gerben, was out of town, but American ex-pat Jim came over from down the street each morning to help out with breakfast. (We tried everything on the menu, and it's all yummy.) Ray, who works the afternoon and evening shift at the front desk, also provided excellent tips on where to eat dinner. (Definitely get the fried grouper from the stand at the corner.)

During our three days in Progreso, we watched kit-surfing on the beach, explored the boardwalk, relaxed in the hotel's outdoor hammocks, cooled off in the pool, and ate to our hearts' content. Hotel Yakunah is comfortable and welcoming, with just enough modern amenities to accommodate us spoiled Americans (wi-fi, TV, A/C) housed in a gorgeous Colonial building that reflects the best of the Yucatan. And the rates truly can't be beat!

We just enjoyed a fabulous week at the Yakunah. We came here on the basis of a friend's recommendation, and that was backed up by the reviews here. Our family (with two girls aged 3 and 6) really loved the pool and garden - apologies to the pool and garden guy who could hardly get a moment to tend things, as our girls were in the pool about 8 hours a day. As expected, Elke, Gerben, Jim and Ray were extremely friendly, welcoming, hospitable charming and lovely hosts. They suggested activities that weren't in the guide books (swimming in the cenote in the mangroves? Fantastic!) ,and steered us in the right direction when we needed local tips (like the beat-up local minibus into town - terrific fun for 80 pesos rather than dragging little girls one mile in the hot sun to the supermarket!).

MEALS:
Breakfast was available when we wanted it (8 am!) and the menu was full of delicious options.

Lunch is never served, but there are plenty of local cafes within walking distance, and the owners helped with suggestions (as they did for dinner). We felt comfortable wandering out to a local take-out place and bringing our mystery Yucatecan dishes back to the hotel to eat by the pool or at our own picnic table.

While it was disappointing that dinner was not being served this month (low season), Gerben generously offered to cook us dinner any night if we asked him that morning - and man, did he serve up some terrific dishes! This is a way to feel like Madonna on vacation - a private chef in a large and lovely outdoor dining area, serving us and our girls just what we requested earlier that day.

The bar was open any time we needed - perfect for a quiet drink at the bar or in the garden after our kids were asleep.

Our garden apartment was just right for 4, with 2 bathrooms and a fridge to store our supermarket haul. The apt was kept beautifully clean with fresh sheets and towels daily. I definitely recommend staying in the Yakunah's garden apt for anyone with young children.

Many thanks, Yakunah, for a lovely and relaxing vacation stay.

We have been staying at hotel Yakunah since july 2007. Our first visit to mexico was to buy a home and we did in Chicxulub Puerto. Every time we visit we always have to stay at Yakunah a few days just becuse we love it there. We can't say enough about the excellent food (morning & evening) plus the service is top notch, The atmosphere is great, and you can't help but not want to leave. Some times we are at the Yakunah more than we are at our home. Needless to say it would be worth your while to visit hotel YaKunah on your next visit to Progreso, and see for yourselves.

Hotel Yakunah is, by far, the best hotel that I have stayed in while abroad. The rooms are immaculate. The food is exquisite. The service, unmatchable. But, most importantly, the people are superb. Gerben and Elke create a place where you feel at home, comfortable, and pampered. Their willingness to go out of their way to make your stay perfect is admirable. If you chose to come to Progreso, and to stay at Hotel Yakunah (which I HIGHLY recommend), you will be welcomed warmly, and treated like family. I cannot profess enough how much I love this place. It is without question the best accomodations available in the Progreso area. My nine week stay was incredible. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

I was staying on my own in Progreso for most of my trip, awaiting the arrival of La Solidaire du Chocolat, and the owners Elke and Gerben could not have made me feel more at home. They are a Dutch couple with years of experience in the hotel trade and they were so friendly and welcoming - I couldn't fault them at all! Then there is the 'supporting cast' of Jim, Ray and local ex-pats who frequent the place on a daily basis and greet you like old friends. The rooms are immaculate, spacious and very clean, the food was superb (Gerben is an excellent chef), and the setting is beautiful and peaceful, with nice gardens, pool and bar/restaurant area. Its about a 20 minute walk along the beach to the centre of Progreso, but a taxi is only 30 pesos if you'd rather take it easy. This really is the only place to stay if you are planning to visit Progreso
