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
The gardens are spectacular and the buffet is pretty good. The service was great and the price is okay. Will definitely go back with guests. Didn’t get a chance to see their rooms but I understand that they are nice.
Beneath the overly manicured face, and the suffocating service, no real concern for guests. They may not like Americans, and with Trump, we understand that. But they are supposed to treat their guests well--and we are quiet, respectful guests, and my wife speaks Spanish. At 9:30 PM, someone opened our room with a key, pushed in, but was stopped by the security bar. Shaken, we went back to bed, and 5 minutes later, another person did the same thing. We called the desk, but got only a vague, "They shouldn't be doing that." We did not sleep well that night, and were too uncomfortable to stay for our second night. We asked that we not be charged for one night, but were adamantly refused, with not even an offer to pay for our dinner. We stayed in three other Yucatan hotels and were treated with the customary Mexican warmth and concern.
Pretty is as pretty does.
It was an excellent experience to arrive to Hacienda Misne. The service since the moment you drop off the car is amazing! And the place is beautiful, a perfect match between historic and nature. The rooms have a great size and and the bathrooms are pretty. Loved the attention, the food and the place!
Lovely hotel and garden. Room are spacious and very clean. Don’t bother booking the room with private pool. Hotel is situated 10 minutes cab drive from the city centre only 80/100 MX$ max. The hotel is quite and relaxing. Only downside was that there is only 6 sun bed around the pool for roughly 50 rooms in the hotel...
My wife and I stayed at Hacienda Misne for five days while she participated in a retreat. This gave me a chance to tour the area visiting several ruin sites. Merida is a great place to use as a take off point being just a few miles from several great sites. The food was very good, the rooms were large, comfortable, and clean, and the staff was friendly and helpful. The only negative is that it is situated a ways from the city center that requires a cab to access. Cab fare is not too expensive, though - about MX$100 to the Plaza Grande.
