Reviewed 18 March 2011

I spent three wonderful days with my mamy in the middle of the nature. The hacienda is absolutely charming; the quiet is amazing, the service is like be at home. Nadia and Philippe (the owners) were always take in care of us: clearing, restaurant, tips and every thing you may need do in your holiday. Nadia made for us a delicious "tagliolini" for dinner one night.........what do you need more! Be sure we'll see you soon.

Hacienda Sacnicte is tranquil, beautiful and only 5 minutes away from the historical center of Izamal [by car]. The rooms are spacious, the shower is wonderful and the setting romantic. There is a very nice pool in the middle of a well kept luscious garden. At night we enjoyed a candle lit dinner at their intimate restaurant. The service was friendly, impeccable and discreet. The owners are charming. A fantastic experience ...

It would be wrong to describe Hacienda Sacnicte as a hotel; it is an experience - and a most delightful one at that.

This converted hacienda is the brainchild of the vivacious and welcoming Nadia and the talented and creative Philippe. Pale pink buildings are reflected in the calm of the swimming pool and enhanced by the palms and lush tropical plants in the gardens. Everything is on a grand scale with each room and individual area more like a film set than a hotel. This doesn't mean that there is anything impersonal about the Hacienda; the opposite in fact. From the moment we drove through the old wrought iron gates and into the grounds, we were engulfed by the warmth of the welcome and the continuing care and attention from Nadia and her staff. Nothing was too much trouble.

A late afternoon swim and relaxation around the pool were a prelude to a delightful evening meal in what was the original hacienda's chapel. Nadia's Italian influence shone through in the menu, the cooking and the wines. I can still feel the texture and savour the taste of those zabagliones!

We stayed in the Rose suite which is spacious and beautifully appointed. The bathroom, in particular, was spectacular with a shower area large enough for a football team and huge pieces of local stone dividing it and the toilet from the rest of the room. Just wish we had a large enough bathroom at home to emulate the idea.

The Hacienda is within an easy drive of Izamal, a tranquil town of ochre coloured buildings, ruined pyramids and a low-key but interesting son et lumiere in the Franciscan monastery.

We've stayed in some pretty upmarket hotels in our time but Hacienda Sacnicte is something special. Having spent the previous four weeks travelling around Mexico, it provided the perfect balm for body and soul. Perfect bliss. We didn't want to leave.

Thank you, Nadia and Philippe, for everything.

We stayed for one night at the beginning of January. Lovely and relaxing context. A very special thank to the owners, Nadia and Philippe, to their kindness and professionality. It's admirable their love for details in the forniture. Rooms are delicious (especially that one with giant skull's mirror!). Staff is cordial and forthcoming. Ideal location to spend quiet times. The nearby Izamal is full of Maya's culture. To go again!!

Hacienda Sacnicte was recommended by my sister who works as a tailor made travel agent Tico in the Netherlands.
She couldn´t be more spot on. The old hacienda is beautifully restored but the main features are the owners. They make the place. Great rooms, super service and the most personal touch during our round trip on the Yucutan Peninsula.

The only thing that could be improved was the water pressure coming from the showers. But hey, I didn´t care when I was relaxing with my cerveza near the pool after coming back from the beautiful city of Izamal.

This hacienda can be used as a base for trips to Chichen Itza and even Uxmal.

When we checked out, we had a car wash and a hug from the owner. Where do you find that these days?

We were traveling in Yucatan with a few friends, we went to see Chichen Itza, we were very tired and it was late, and someone told us to drive about 40 minutes to Izamal"pueblo magico", and we would find a european/mexican hacienda, very hip. We were not very convinced because we are young and we wanted dancing and fun, but we went there anyway. First of all they welcomed us with a very good cocktail and fresh towels with Lavander smell, and we had fresh fish and homemade pasta, the owner is italian and taught the kitchen to make european plates. The music was like lounge from New York, where my friends came from. We slept in really cosy beds with high ceilings and my room was all purple and was named tulip. Big surprise in the morning, we had fresh croissants and asked us if we wanted turkey, and how we are all american we wanted and loved it. We went to be lazy at the pool all day, and just chilled, and drank strawberry champagne, and at night we went to the see the magic event "light and sound", from the 1500s. we ended up staying there for three days, we recommend it to all.
At the end we asked for all the cds, becuase they were so cool...!!!

Style and Sophistication in the Yucatan. We found the Hacienda Sacnicte to be an amazing mix of a classic old hacienda but updated to today´s standards. The location is perfect to see the old Mayan ruins as well as the historic cities of Izamal and Merida. But you hate to leave the hacienda because it is so comfortable. Great food, great hospitality and the atmosphere is enchanting. This is the way to see Yucatan.

We will be back!
