Hacienda San Jose is one of the most amazing place I have ever stayed at. Its beauty, its remoteness and the excellence of the service make it a very special experience. Unique garden, perfect pool with shaded hamacas directly over the pool, nothing beats this beautiful retreat.

We were here for a destination wedding. The property is old and beautiful. Each room is unique, comfortable & spacious. The food and service was among the best anywhere no matter what the hour. The only "limitation" was that there is literally nothing to do except relax, read, get a massage & enjoy the hospitality. It's far from everything, but...

The place is wonderful. Vegetation is amazing and everything is spacious and beautiful. But the best part of this hotel is the friendly service. We were just walking around the property and someone offered a private tour and explained the history of the place, took us all around and made sure we were satisfied with the explanation.

Wow! This place is away from everything and a wonderful place to walk in nature. The hacienda was a henequen (fiber for rope etc) plantation back in the 1800's. It was restored 18 years ago. It is not in Tixkokob. It is 11 km from Cacalchen a small village off of the highway which is 15 minutes from Izamal. When...

We have stayed during one night at Hacienda Hotel San Jose. It is really a great place to be but a bit overprized.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hacienda San Jose is an emblematic building erected in the 18th century that, even after undergoing restoration, preserves the pastel blues of its facade, its decoration, and the murals in the chapel. Located just a 45 minute drive from Mérida’s International Airport, this place is perfect as a starting off point to visit other sceneries such as the Balancanche caves, Izamal or the mythical Pyramids of Chichén Itzá. Lavender blue colors are all around the corners of Hacienda San Jose. Its 15 rooms and suites, spread around a colonial patio with captivating ambience, will take you back in time to the past but with the amenities of this century. The former vegetables garden of the old residence is currently a site for a fantastic pool and Jacuzzi that, along with the surrounding Mayan palapas, present guests with a unique life experience. ... more   less
