This review is coming a bit late considering I was here back in early April!
Nonetheless I had a fantastic stay at Hacienda del Sol with Manuela and her guests. Manuela has set up her home such that there is always available interaction both with her and the other lovely guests should one choose to do so. I chose to do so and had very interesting chats with the other guests, was invited out for dinners and even helped Manuela do some local shopping for chairs (a very fascinating experience!)
Hacienda del Sol is situated away from the main touristy strip of Playa del Carmen and overall provides a much more 'authentic' experience with good food readily available in the surrounding neighbourhood. Manuela is always ready to help so you will be in good hands when you stay here!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Located outside the tourist driven madness of Playa del Carmen, Hacienda del Sol provides the best of both worlds. Live among the locals with local prices. Save on drinks and food with a variety of local establishments within walking distance. When you're ready for the craziness of Playa or just want to hang at the beach, take one of our bikes, for free! Or take a 5 peso, 10 minute colectivo ride straight into the heart of Playa's party zone. Feeling lazy? Lounge by our pool, or under one of our two breezy cabanas and enjoy a beer. A relaxed environment only minutes away from the infamous 5th avenue. Here at Hacienda del Sol we have 3 lovely dorms, 4 Deluxe privates and a Quad private. Our rooms are bright, spotlessly clean and spacious. All include comfy beds with fresh linen, personal power points and security lockers. They all have fans or AC is available for a small fee. We have a fully equipped kitchen and an outdoor BBQ, which we put to use at least once a week! We have a big screen TV in the common area with hundreds of movies on offer. WIFI of course is complimentary. And we also have ample off-street parking for cars or motorbikes. In short we have everything a traveler could desire, so we hope you'll come and enjoy Hacienda del Sol! ... more less
