“This lovingly restored 18th-century hacienda in the jungle is the perfect romantic hideaway. Stunning rooms and villas feature cool tile floors, tropical hardwood furnishings and private plunge pools. Lush tropical gardens, hammocks and spa complete the picture. A garden of Eden. ”

Hotel Overview

“A ruined hacienda deep in the scrubland forest of the Yucatan, now transformed into an exclusive hotel with rooms built from the former workers’ quarters, a tiny well-preserved chapel and a world-class spa within a traditional thatched house. Elsewhere on the estate the Casitas Mayas are ultra-romantic self-contained cottages with a hanging double bed, private jacuzzi pools surrounded by the garden and a large walk-through shower.”

Hacienda San José

"For a smaller but more romantic space, each of the four Mayan Villas has a big bathroom, plunge pool and a 'hammock bed', a king-sized bed suspended from a four-poster frame."
