How to Get There
Many of the reviews of hotels you read about are usually based on a one night stay. Depending on the good or bad experience of that one night should reflect the overall quality of the hotel. I would look at several recent reviews and also try to get an idea of the type of person who wrote the reviews to get an overall idea of the hotel.
With that said, my wife and I are in our late 50’s and early 60’s. We are the outdoor types who would rather be outdoors than in a “bubble resort” where you are isolated from the culture and environment that you are supposedly vacationing in.
We were on a road trip through the Yucatan Peninsula and we were stopping by to visit Uxmal. We were somewhat reluctant to book a room at the Hacienda Uxmal Plantation & Museum. It looked too much like a resort type hotel. But it was the nearest lodging we could find that was close to the Mayan ruins.
Checking in was very quick and easy. While we waited we were offered a nice cold glass of lemonade which was really was a nice touch seeing that it was hot and humid. We were pleasantly surprised to have our room upgraded to a corner room.
It wasn’t the resort type atmosphere which I dreaded. In fact it was a very pleasant experience. The hotel is occupied in an old hacienda dating back hundreds of years. The hotel grounds are beautifully kept. All of the flooring including the rooms and the main hallways were in decorated tile
Our room was spacious and clean. My wife loved the huge panoramic window in the room. We even tried the jet tub in the bathroom which was also spacious.
The beds were clean and comfortable. The only complaint that we had was that my wife thought it was too noisy at night with all the jungle noises of the birds. I thought it was great as we were in the jungle.
There are two restaurants in the hotel and we found the food to be very god considering that we were in the middle of nowhere. My wife enjoyed the swimming pool and I enjoyed just sitting around and relaxing in the bath robes which were provided.
It was a very relaxing atmosphere with all of the vegetation surrounding the hotel. There is an easy going atmosphere there. It must have been the low season as there weren’t too many other guests in the hotel and what guest there were, they were very quiet and all very courteous.
We walked over to the Chocolate Museum next door which was more of a botanical garden with an aviary, rescued jaguars and monkeys, and Mayan style huts which served as displays showing the history of chocolate.
We walked over to the Uxmal ruins the next morning and after visiting the ruins went back to the hotel to shower before getting back on the road. There 12 noon check out time was very convenient and we were told that we could take our time checking out. We had lunch by the pool before leaving.
All in all, it was a very nice stay. It wasn’t the resort like hotel we were dreading. It was a very comfortable hotel with a very professional and helpful staff, conveniently located next to the Uxmal ruins.
I would recommend any visitor arriving in the afternoon to relax and visit the Chocolate Museum next door where it’s very shaded by vegetation from the sun and save the visit for Uxmal ruins for the next morning before the crowds arrive in the tour busses. After your visit to the ruins, you can walk back to the hotel which takes about 5 to 10 minutes, take a shower because you would be soaked with perspiration from the heat and humidity, clean up, have lunch and check out and continue on with your adventure.
This property is a wonderful option to spend a couple of relaxed days in a luxury setting. There are many celebrities who have stayed in the hacienda over the years and photographs of their visits are proudly displayed in the corridors. Since it is tropical country, be prepared for heat and humidity here especially when one is outdoors or by the pool
We loved this hotel with large interestingly furnished rooms that gave the feeling of past luxury and comfort. There were few tiny things not quite right BUT if you look past those you will find it is very comfortable in a classy way. The pool area was very enjoyable to have a drink and meal around. Swimming was refreshing. Wander around and read the accounts of explorers and archaeologists who discovered the Mayan ruins over the last 200 years. Wonderful photos and stories.
After staying here for 2 nights and then reading reviews I'm reluctant to mention what others have said about the cost of the food. Anyone commenting on the food prices seem to be lambasted by the owner. Here goes...we loved the place but lost some weight because we refused to pay the high prices for their food. By the time we got to this hotel we had been traveling Mexico for 2 months. Sorry but your food prices are high.
But the rest of our time was very good!! Thanks!!
This is a strikingly beautiful place, in a great location in walking distance from the pyramids, with great, friendly service and great food.
The only reason I am not giving it five stars is that in this day and age, not having good internet is like not having hot water. Their wireless internet service is okay for sending email but not much else. There are dead spots (including our room) where there is no wireless at all.
So, it's great if you want to unplug and lie in the sun all day. If you want to do any business, forget it.
