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.
