We booked this Hacienda to enjoy visits to Chichen Itza and birding, but we found out this hotel property is a unique Green Retreat and a Nature Reserve. The hotel has one of the best lush gardens we ever have seen, birds everywhere, all day!
Flora and fauna are cared with great respect. They call it Sustainable Tourism and we call it a sanctuary much like paradise should be. Great food, excellent friendly service, romantic dinners under the stars (lots of them!) soft guitar music, gourmet food (try their Maya Chaya Soup), fresh tropical fruits right from their own organic gardens, good wine and expresso !! Our room was painted off-white with off-white bedspreads and colorful embroidered decor pillows that made the ambiance look charming, very clean and truly what you will expect a Mexican home cottage will look like. Fun spacious private patio terrace, with a great hammock to enjoy a relaxing cocktail with a great sunset view. Pool has a divingboard. Great fun. Boutique lovely decorated with many fine ceramics and other Mayan art collections and exclusive handmade jewelry (bought lots of gifts here). Now the best part: Yaxkin Spa Maya Rituals are something no-one should miss when staying here.
No wonder we read an article featuring this Maya holistic healing center one of the ten top world eco-spas. It sure is! Try the Ya-Ha Ceremony.
Recommended for romantic couples, honeymooners, people like us that want to relax, enjoy the outdoors, learn about the Maya culture, eat fine food and feel there is paradise after all: HERE.
One word of caution: don't book only one night, you will wish to stay four as we did.

I stayed at the relaxing and beautiful Hacienda Chichen recently for a long weekend. I was absolutely amazed by the natural beauty of the surrounding gardens and the many birds. I really enjoyed being able to go to the ruins of Chichen Itza, which are in walking distance, and then return to the Hacienda to take a refreshing dip in the pool. I enjoyed a birdwatching tour early in the morning with a certified guide who knew all the common and Maya names of the local birds and flora. I enjoyed the cozy rooms and great restaurant service. I will definitley be returning!

Our favority Boutique Hacienda in Yucatan. The hotel's staff is friendly, service excellent, ambiance romantic, a real jewel for those wishing to enjoy the Maya Ruins of Chichen Itza while staying in a jungle like paradise. Lots of colorful birds, lush tropical setting, and a great holistic Mayan Spa where we enjoy the Ya ha Maya Ceremony for couples. For sure we will return here! Our friends got married at the Hacienda Chichen's Colonial Chapel, we hope to do the same next year.

Top Local Tips for Chichen Itza

miss the crowds and enjoy the ride If you can go to the light show at night and then return to the psite in the morning. Crowds and vendors don't start to arrive till about 11 - 11:30. Before this you can really sample the amazing acoustics at the base of the pyramid, the center of the site and in the ball stadium - after the marning with too many people it gets very hard to hear the acoustic returns. If you are driving - you don't need to take the toll highway it is boring. You can take the 'free' route from Cancun that goes through Valladolid and other smaller villages or the route that goes from Tulum. The roads are very good and there are some nice stops along the way. I would however get back to cancun or Tulum before nightfall.

Chichen Itza Site Tips Make sure you go to the sound and light show at night, rent the translator for 2.50. Go to the site by day first thing in the morning before its too hot and too crowded.

Visiting Chichén Itzá If you have the time, do your own research before visting Chichén Itzá, and skip the guides. While some are OK, the quality of the English can be so spotty that I preferred the Spanish tours. Also, some of the information they present to you with confidence is at best controversial and at worst, simply wrong - so it is not clear what qualifications are necessary to be a guide. Also, be prepared to be BOMBARDED by souvenir vendors - they will be quite persistent - so you will need to employ frequent and firm (but polite) 'No, gracias'.
