This 18th century hacienda is full of stained glass and country house charm, from the tiled floors to the swinging hammocks to the birds singing in the tropical-flower filled gardens. In addition to historic charisma, there’s a touch of Hollywood about the place: there are two vast pools, which are dramatically lit by night, a gourmet restaurant specializing in the Yucatan’s cuisine, and a steam room and spa that’s housed in a traditional thatched hut.
In the Area
The Hacienda Misne is set in the countryside fifteen minutes from downtown Merida with its historic cathedral and stately main square, the Plaza de Armas, where local artisans sell their wares. That makes it well-placed for exploring the city, but also the neighboring countryside. Adventurers can spelunk in the Calcehtok Caves or swim in holy cenotes, underground lakes that were sacred to the Mayans. Speaking of the Mayans, arguably their greatest ruined city, Chichén Itzá, is less than an hour and a half away. And if you’re itching for the sea? Head to the fishing village of Celestun for its amazing biosphere and brilliant pink flocks of flamingos.
How to Get There
Very mixed feelings about this hotel- staff were very nice but the place is crying out for some money to be spent on maintenance. Also, while we understood the hotel was outside the central area we assumed there would become some local amenities and activities within the vicinity however there is virtually nothing around.
This place has once been very impressive. It’s location means that it is delightfully peaceful. The large walled garden is lush and contains many lovely mature trees. Unfortunately we were advised that it was tree roots which prevented our shower tray from draining. Apart from the drainage problem we had an ongoing problem with an electric socket outlet which was detached from the wall and left hanging by the cable. This is absolutely unsafe but was not repaired despite us reporting it several times.
The room itself was large, comfortably furnished, but rather dark. There were insufficient power outlets in convenient locations. Wifi was good. The room did have a safe but not large enough to take a laptop. There was no fridge in the room but one was rapidly provided on request.
We ate at the hotel restaurant on several occasions - the service, food and prices were all very good.
What a wonderful place! Beautiful location, full of history, warm service and incredible memories.
The rooms are great and allow you to enjoy nature and relaxation.
The hotel has large beautifully kept gardens and incredible accommodations.
The personnel is friendly and full of positive ideas, thanks Misne team, we had a wonderful time.
Hacienda Misne is wonderful - we had 6 days here and wish we had time for more! We arrived after a long journey in the heat and were greeted with iced tea and were welcomed very warmly by the team - this is a stand-out feature of Hacienda Misne - the people are absolutely lovely and do everything they can to make your stay the best. The hacienda is gorgeous green and lush with beautiful huge rooms. It’s incredibly clean too with few insects somehow. Breakfast was delicious and healthy, eggs, fruit, juices, pancakes....dinner was absolutely delicious to the point where we actually stayed in most nights as we wanted to try the whole menu after the first night as it was so good! Traditional Mexican dishes. There is also an outdoor pool and a bonus was the indoor glass air-conditioned gym. We brought our teenage children here and they loved it but we think it would be a treat for couples or adult groups too as it was so peaceful. It would also be fun for younger kids to explore. We miss this place already and can not wait to be back!
