“Wonderful Hotel”
Reviewed 29 January 2014 via mobile

Spent 3 wonderful nights at this hacienda. As a member of the Starwood group it's very well run and the staff are extremely professional, friendly and efficient. The hacienda is set in the most wonderful surroundings It's absolutely fantastic for a couple of quite relaxing days. Nearby Merida makes for a wonderful days outing. The only negative in my opinion is that the pool Is a little on the cold side. Fresh well water is apparently pumped in daily. It's beautiful to look at but on our visit was uninvitingly cold. Otherwise 5 out of 5. As for a Mayan Village room.

Stayed January 2014, travelled as a couple

Great hotel in a beautiful hacienda. Perfect for relaxation and escaping stress. The grounds are stunning and featuring beautiful relaxing spaces and vegetation. Very romantic hotel, particularly if you stay in one of the "casitas."

We have just moved on from San Jose and already miss it's peace and tranquility, it truly is a little garden of Eden. Our stay was extra special as for 24 hours we were the only guests and so had the whole place to ourselves. The staff were incredibly kind, friendly and helpful. One night we were delighted to see a special place in the garden had been created for us to enjoy dinner. We carried our cameras everywhere and couldn't stop taking photos because at every corner and turn there was another stunning image in front of you. You completely relax there and it was hard to drag ourselves away. The history of the place is amazing and it really made the place special, the historical touches more than compensate for the "luxuries" other bland 5 stars offer

Recently returned from a short three night stay at the Hacienda. We had been here once before some 4 years ago. This time we returned with our two dogs which were welcome to stay with us. That was such a joy since many "luxury" hotels in Mexico turn their nose up if you want to travel with your pets. No such problem here and we had a very relaxing time. Great location, very peaceful and excellent restaurant. Looking forward to samping the other Haciendas they have in other parts of the Yucatan.

Our stay at Hacienda San Jose was the highlight of our honeymoon. Our only regret is that we did not stay longer!
From the moment we arrived we were made to feel special by the amazing staff at the hotel. No tiny detail was overlooked in our room, the hotel grounds or the attentive service. The hotel itself is stunningly beautiful and such a peaceful oasis. We had a room with a private plunge pool and we loved arriving back from dinner to find the pool filled and decorated with candles. The sweet treats and special touches by housekeeping were a delight.
We loved the history of the hotel itself and it was wonderful to enjoy such luxury in a romantic and character-filled location.
I could go on and on about how much we loved this place! Highly recommended, especially for those travelling for a special occasion.

Booking a 5-day stay at the Hacienda San Jose was the smartest decision we made during our visit to the Yucatan. We loved seeing the nearby sights of Merida, Uxmal, and Ixamal, but how wonderful it was to return to the Hacienda at the end of the day. I almost regretted leaving for our day trips as I could've happily spent the entire vacation at the Hacienda. We were thrilled to receive an unanticipated upgrade to the gorgeous Casa Patron with private pool and gardens. We awoke on the first morning to what I thought was music, but soon realized were the birds singing in the trees around us. I did manage to carve out one entire day to luxuriate by the pool, curl up with a book in the hammocks on the terrace, and go birdwatching on the grounds with Manuel, one of the Mayan employees. I highly recommend the Mayan massage at the spa. Loida, a cheerful Mayan woman, was my therapist and she was fantastic. In fact, everyone was amazingly friendly and helpful, from the receptionist, Maira, to all the staff at the restaurant.

If you are driving, do not rely on google maps. Take a GPS or download the instructions on the Hacienda website. But by all means, go and enjoy this idyllic retreat from the cares of the world.

Room Tip: The Mayan villas look amazing!

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.

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.
