This hacienda is the perfect place for a holiday: it lies outside Merida ( buses pass by all the time and taxi's are available to get you into town in 20 minutes). Robert and Caroline Franck are such wonderful hosts, friendly, informal and they anticipate on everything you might me needing. Caroline is also a very good cook, she mixes french, creole and mexican food into very tasty dishes. The other staff is very good, they love what they are doing and that's all centered on giving you a good time.
We were there during the Xmas-holidays for 11 days; we were there with our family of 8 persons ( 6 adults and 2 children aged 7 and 9) and we really didn't want to leave. We all travel a lot and are critical people, but our conclusion for once was unanimous: this was the best hotel we have ever stayed in!
The hacienda has 2 pools, a big garden, a spa and rooms ( all different) scattered on the premises, so you have a lot of privacy. We stayed in 2 suites, those were huge with incredible bathrooms ( never seen such big baths) and private terraces.
Everything was very clean and lovingly restored in a beautiful mixture of old and modern style. We really couldn't think of anything that needed changing, but the most wonderful thing remained the atmosphere of staying with friends.
Robert and Caroline speak fluently english, spanish and french, a bonus which helped in arranging trips to everything interesting the Yucatan has to offer.
If you want to have a holiday in which you are spoilt rotten in beautiful surroundings, go to this perfect place!
