We just spent 2 night at this fantastic quiet hotel. The bungalows are spacious and comfortable and are unique. The grounds are very well maintained and we enjoyed the natural setting with many iguanas and birds. The pool was quiet and nice. The quick walk to Chichen Itza was a definite plus. Food was average. Hotel has plenty of history... More

A wonderful option for Chichen Itza, with its own private entrance. Bungalows are large and comfortable with lovely bathrooms and leaded, stained glass windows. The entire hotel complex is beautifully decorated and in gorgeous grounds with huge trees and rolling lawns. Restaurants are good and there's a great bar. Staff are friendly and efficient and the shows at the Planetarium... More

The location, their own entrance to Chichen Icha,the comfort of the bungalows, there is not a lot more that you can wish! You can also book your own guide with them for your visit to Chichen Icha. Restaurantsare OK with reasonable food.

I had lunch at the hotel after I did the Chichen Itza tour and also got in the pool. It is a beautiful area and I even saw a peacock! But, I can't speak to the cost of lodging or the rooms since I was only there for an afternoon.

We stayed at The Lodge at Chichen Itza for four nights and used it as our base for exploring the area around us. The lodges are incredibly nice and comfortable.

The Lodge is a great example of a hotel that was built in different times. The architecture is stunning and the grounds are immaculate.
