Hacienda Hotel Santo Domingo
Ranked #1 of 5 Hotels in Izamal
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 February 2014

During our travels we stay in a lot of different kinds of hotels from 5 star big name places to smaller family run ones so the ratings we put on trip advisor are based on how good the hotel is within its particular category and location.
The Romantic Hotel Santo Domingo is a small ranch like property on the edge of Izamal, about a 10 minute walk from the town centre. The rooms are spread around the grounds and there is a thatch covered central bar and restaurant area next to a swimming pool.
Harald is an experienced Austrian hotelier and it shows in the attention to detail. The welcome is warm and friendly, the rooms are very clean and well equipped and the service is friendly. There is no TV but a CD player and you will be given a selection of music when you check in.
Sonia is a good cook and breakfasts are freshly cooked and beautifully presented. They will also provide evening meals if you wish and there is a modest but well priced wine list. All in all it's more like staying with hospitable friends than in an hotel which is why in this category it deserves 5 stars.

Great place and excellent people. Everyone at the hotel makes you feel comfortable, the service is perfect, and the hotel is beautiful. I cannot think of anything I did not like about this place. Very highly recommended.

We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights, but wish we had stayed longer. It was so relaxing. The rooms and grounds were absolutely beautiful! The service was excellent! Sonia, Harald and staff were so nice! They took such great care of us. We felt like family. The room was really clean and comfortable. We also enjoyed the animals. The food was amazing! Sonia is a great cook. We ate so well. We met some very nice people while we stayed there. Rose and Mark if you are reading this, it was a pleasure! We will always have great memories of that amazing place! Thank you so much Sonia and Harald! Hope we see you again some day. Chantal & Francois :-)

I enjoyed my stay at this lovely little hotel just outside of Izamal. The grounds are garden like and the room was very comfortable. Breakfast and dinner were graciously served. I particularly enjoyed my discussions with the other guests as the intimate atmosphere encourages comradery with fellow travelers. My only regret was that I was unable to enjoy a swim in the charming pool as it was too cool.

We only stayed here for one night, however we really enjoyed our stay. We were warmly welcomed by the hotel owner and made to feel very welcome. We were shown our room straight away despite arriving before check in time. As soon as we had put our bags not the room we were invited to have a welcome drink of anything we fancied. Whist enjoying our drinks we were given lots of information by the owner about the town and we also given restaurant recommndations which was helpful. The 'cactus' room was very spacious and the bed was very comfortable. There is no TV which is not a problem, however we were given a selection of CDs should we want to listen to some music. The rooms are well soundproofed. The shower was powerful and hot. The best part of the stay was the wonderful breakfast. By far, the best one we had in Mexico. Fabulous, bread, fruit and eggs together with endless supplies of coffee. All in all, a great stay and would recommend if you are visiting Izamal. The hotel is around an easy 15 minute walk into the town centre

Stayed for 3 nights over New Years. We concur with all the comments the other reviewers have made on this wonderful place and found it a great place to get away from it all and relax. The owners are lovely, interesting people who took great care of us, and could not be more helpful. Recommend.

We stayed here for the New Year's week while we visited the mayan ruins, towns, cinotes and beaches in the Yucatán. It is centrally located for short day trips to more destinations than we could visit in one week. Izamal is a great little town with a number of sites including a mayan temple. The room was modern (hot water/ac/clean) while the overall esthetic of the hotel, considering it's been converted from part of a hacienda, had an authentic Yucatán sensibility. The dinners were extraordinary...on par with the best restaurants we've dined at in nyc. The owners are friendly and accommodating yet maintain a quiet presence allowing us to feel relaxed in the hotel's serene environment. It was a wonderful experience and HIGHLY recommend it. We are going to head back to the Yucatan to visit the places we missed & will definitely be staying at the hotel again.
