“Great Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

My family, who are living a good portion of this summer in Merida, and I on my visit to see them there this week, had the great pleasure of spending a night at the Lodge at Uxmal. What a fantastic property! Everything from check in, with a welcome cocktail, to departure was first rate. The room was very comfortable and immaculately clean. The little extra touches were noticed and appreciated. The pools were lovely and a welcome relief from the Yucatan heat. Dinner in the restaurant was a delight as was the very unique and deliciously enjoyable traditional Mayan breakfast the next morning. The service provided by everyone was truly outstanding. A huge thank you to Luis Felipe who acts as the concierge/guest services director. He is the model of great service and is a real attribute to the resort. Also, his arrangement for us of ruins tour guide Jorge was greatly appreciated. Some maintenance was taking place, but nothing which disturbed our stay and only shows the commitment of the owners to keep the facility in tip top shape. The proximity to the ruins is almost unbelievable. We could have easily stayed for several days and used this beautiful resort as a place to just to get away from it all. Well done!

Luis Felipe and all of us at The Lodge at Uxmal thank you for your visit and your GREAT comments.

We hope that, since your family is spending some time in nearby Merida, you'll come and visit us for a few days. There are beautiful, interesting Maya villages all around us. The world class caves of Loltun are but minutes near us, as are the Puuc Region's fabulous temples and Convents.

We look forward to having the honor of serving you again soon. Hasta la vista !

Before touring Uxmal temple site we had a rest stop and meal at this lodge. The grounds are lovely with some attention to good ecological practice. Shops include items that are really Mexican, including hand embroideries, and in general a cut above usual. The noon meal was excellent with wide range of choices, including vegan, and despite the upscale ambience also "all you can eat". Service was outstanding and the location under massive thatch roof pleasantly open.

If you want to engage all your senses and add local taste to your visit of Uxmal, then the Lodge at Uxmal is the place to go. Not only the location is spectacular, a few yards from the entrance to the ruins, but also the service makes it even better.

We came to the hotel in the afternoon and toured the Uxmal ruins. Then we had a delicious dinner at the hotel and back to the ruins for the light and sound show that is offered during summer. The rooms are spacious, comfortable, clean, and have very good air conditioning. The next day we were treated to a unique breakfast in a Mayan hut, where we were offered traditional Mayan dishes as hot water chocolate, hand made tortillas, “huevos encamisados”, spearmint omelet, chaya omelet, and a variety of fresh fruits.

Thanks to Luis Felipe and all the team for making this a memorable trip for us.

We loved the location but because of renovations we were one of very few guests and our chef cooked for us personally - even at our table! I will never forget the food and the wonderful staff. Thank you from David and Tricia.

Stayed here for 2 days to see Mayan sites. Very welcoming, lovely rooms and pool.
Location is perfect for Uxmal and the smaller sites at Sayil, Kabak, etc.

Loved hearing the jungle noises from our room and was nice to use fan and carefully thought out ventilation rather than having to use the ( very effective) air conditioning.

Only suggestion for improvements is that I found the menu a bit unadventurous. i would have liked to see a wider selection of traditional, freshly prepared, local food. But was still OK.

Room Tip: Our room by the pool was lovely, but I thin kmost of them are

Thank you for visiting Uxmal through our Lodge.

We appreciate your comments. I am taking note of your menu suggestion.
Perhaps our collaborators failed to show you our local menu on our iPads, showing how each item is prepared, since names alone could not possibly describe the authentic Maya and Yucatecan delicacies we offer.

We look forward to having the honor of your visit again soon. Until then, may you always enjoy happy and safe travels. Hasta la vista!

My family and I stayed here for one night in order to be well situated to visit Uxmal in the morning. We couldn't have been any closer or we would be inside the ruins. Hotel is located directly in front of the entrance to Uxmal, and the hotel has free parking. The hotel was perfect for my family, children ages 9 and 11. My senior citizen in-laws were also travelling with us and liked it as well. The design is very open and spacious two story thatch roof type building with Mexican tile throughout. The rooms open up to large shared porch lounge areas with hammocks and rocking chairs. We found are rooms spacious, comfortable and clean. The staff was very helpful and courteous. They went out of their way to help us call our credit card company after the account was blocked (we forgot to tell them we would be travelling). They let us use their phone and computer to fix our problem.
The restaurant on property is decent but mostly just convenient. I found myself ordering sopa de limon pretty much everywhere because it is hard to mess it up and it is a specialty of Yucatan. We had dinner on the night of our arrival and breakfast before going to visit Uxmal. During breakfast we were approached by a local tour guide offering his services. We had a great experience with our guide at Chichen Itza and so we booked him. He was nice and knowledgeable but we did feel a bit rushed. In fairness to him, he did inform us that he was booked for another tour after us.
If you are looking to be near Uxmal this hotel is perfect. You will avoid all the crowds that come in on the tour buses later in the day.

Everything about this facility was outstanding. We stayed for 3 nights and from check-in to departure the stay was perfect. Fantastic staff, beautiful grounds, great pool area and excellent room. Luis Felipe was a magnificent host and made sure we were well taken care of. We have stayed at the lodes at Chichen Itza for many years and this was our first visit back to Uxmal in over 5 years. Extremely relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. Due to Luis and the staff at Uxmal we will definitely return.
