“Affordable Luxury”
Reviewed 25 September 2012

What a great place to stay. We were doing some house hunting and the property owner recommended this hotel. The room we had was truly a one of a kind, a raised King size bed, lounge area with TV and AC and a garden tub screened above and open to nature plus a separate shower with hot water. Sounds simple enough but many of the features are not available elsewhere. Plus the owner, Harald , is onsite , tri-lingual so we picked his brain for as much info on living nearby. as he could offer, and he filled our heads with great info. He was such a gracious host and his meals cooked with his wife, Sonia, were delicious and reasonably priced.

The grounds of the hotel are beautifully maintained , the pool and bar area stunning. It has such a private feel yet it is a 30 acre hidden jungle retreat close to town.

We loved the town of Izamal especially this hotel. We really appreciated all the owner's time and attention, he made us love the area even more. We were treated like royalty,as if we were the only guests , it was hard to imagine the place was nearly full.

We would unhesitatingly recommend this hotel and hope we can go back soon. Our biggest regret is we had only 2 nights to stay there, would have loved to have been able to stay longer.. We have stayed in many other countries and now count this as our favorite hotel for all around pleasure. And lest we forget the bed was so comfortable, best hotel bed by far.

Room Tip: beyond excellent! The owners make a superb unique hotel even better. You are more of a guest at th...

The hotel is situated in a very quiet and romantic place. It is well kept and looks clean and fresh. The owner, his wife and the staff are very friendly and helpfull people. The food (diner as well as breakfast) they prepare is delicious and made with fresh ingredients! The room was lovely and the bed is one of the best we had in Mexico.

This was the perfect place to relax and enjoy the celebration of our anniversary. The host and staff speak English as well as Spanish and German. They presented the best reception and friendly, attentive service that any traveler could hope for. It was romantic for sure with gentle surprises every day, like looking out the window to see a baby sheep grazing in the lawn in front of the porch or flights of various birds flying over the pool as we soaked in comfort and a true feeling of luxury. The room offered air conditioning, a selection of CDs for music and was simply outstanding, converted from historic buildings on site when the property was purchased and providing one of the best bathing and showering areas that I have ever enjoyed. The included breakfast to order was served each morning and a special dinner was offered at a reasonable price and quietly served in the evening.
Though the feeling was of living in the Yucatan jungle, the walk into and through the Pueblo of Izamal was comfortable and enjoyable, the visit there to the oldest Spanish mission in North America was informative and easy (guide recommended) and the food and beverages, typical Yucatecan, were delicious at both of the restaurants we visited.

Room Tip: Reserve in the shoulder season and ask the host for an upgrade. All the rooms are beautiful.

We travelled an extra hundred miles from Merida to again experience the feel and excellence of this hotel, pet the dogs and have great food and libations with the owners. We got the same room at the end of the built out property and in the middle of jungle, with fan palms and other trees all around and multicolored tropical flowes all around. I am an early riser and went out on our deck at 630AM or so to listen to the jungle waking up and see the sunrise. Soon the hostess came with coffee and then, a full breakfast included, whatever you want. My wife slept another hour, then we both ate and drank coffee. A perfect place for intimacy and reflection. We will always come back. A plus, we had a very intelligent and spirited conversation with a visiting Frenchman and his wife who gave us a good insight into the fierce feelings that Europeans have about the continuing economic crisis and the recent French elections. This was a great two night stay with great food, wine and reasonable price. Pool was aplus.

Room Tip: Get the last room with deck to jungle.

I've stayed at Romantic Santo Domingo before, so I knew what to expect, except the new room I stayed in this time had a bathroom that was out of this world. Now I know that a bathroom is not a reason to stay at a hotel, but sometimes the little things make all the difference in the world. I felt like was staying in a $600 a night bathroom - the sunken outdoor jungle shower with its stone walls and floors was beautiful. The rainwater shower was just perfect! The rest of the room was clean, and charmingly decorated, but when I entered the bathroom, I was in another world. I was there in April and the weather was perfect, not too cold or hot, so showering underneath the stars was a complete joy. I think the breakfasts have gotten better since I was there last and that was a treat since I enjoy my breakfasts. I like it when a place I like anyway just gets better. Kudos to the owners, Harald and Sonjia. I'll come back again.

Room Tip: I don't know the name of the room, but the room with the fabulous bathroom is the furthest to th...

My wife an I we spent two nights in april 2012 at Hotel Santo Domingo in Yucatan, Mexico: it is indeed a charming place at the edge of small colonial town of Ixamal situated in the hard of Maya land, comfortable, clean and with european charm decorated bungalows and rooms with a wide range from backpackers need and budget up to first class junior suites!, family administration (austrian/mexican) individualized and very friendly service, good food, we had to work in town and in the afternoon and night I enjoyed it very much to let the soul hang arround in a hammock at the pool side. It´s a place for people who like it to travel different! Xinia and Helmut
