We stayed here for one night which was sufficient. It was a nice break from cities, the place was so quiet and serene. The buildings were beautiful. The junior suite we stayed in was really nice, great smells, very large room, comfortable bed and huge bathroom. It was dark but that's because it was in the middle of the jungle and surrounded by trees. The best thing about this place is the gardens, they are very expansive and spectacular and it's so nice with all the birds and waking up to birds in a very comfortable room which surprisingly did not have bugs which was a big plus for us. The cost for car transfer to merida was a bit pricy. We felt like we had the place to ourselves though I think there was anger person there. We had the pool to ourselves. It's not like five star properties on beaches where there is service everywhere bout we prefer being left on our own and just asking when we needed something. So for us it was great. The only down side is the food which was pretty average but it's fine when staying just one day, the breakfast was fine. I would definitely recommend staying here for a night for the experience and we found it much better than the other two haciendas from SPG that we stayed at.

- 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. Located just a 45 minute drive from Mérida’s International Airport, this place is perfect as a starting off point to visit other sceneries such as the Balancanche caves, Izamal or the mythical Pyramids of Chichén Itzá. 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.
