Summary of 58 verified reviews


Excellent luxury hotel. Great rooms and fantastic service. Awesome vibe.

Hacienda San Jose Cholul is a small private hacienda located south east of Merida. The 15 rooms and suites are conditioned with exquisite details and locates around the main 18th century building, surrounded by beautiful gardens.

We invite you to evoke the splendor of past eras, eveloped in the luxurious amenities and services expected of a five-star hotel. Learn about the history, our role in the social context of this ever evolving land, the rich juxtaposition of the ancient and modern cultures. Delight in the flavors of our cuisine, the architectural heritage of our rooms and the archeological zones, colonial villages and the natural reserves that surround us.

Almost all guest rooms form part of the original building that have been fully restored and adapted to the hotel needs: their high ceilings and unique décor evoke the splendor of past eras. A specific restoration project had been developed to express its particular architectonic personality by conserving the same spirit that its former and original owners gave to it. Thus, in some cases, the restoration of buildings brings together both contemporary and traditional aspects and the new spaces and elements serve above all to highlight the artistic and architectonic value of the haciendas original features.

Most of the rooms features 18-foot ceilings with inside exposed beams and rafters; narrow, 10-foot-high, wooden double doors; beautiful wooden beds and cabinets made of dark, tropical hardwoods; cool tile floors; and large, bulbous pegs set into the stone walls for hanging the woven cotton hammocks, for which Yucatan is famous, to allow our guests sleep in the Mayan Style.

For those who want to perceive an even more mayan experience we invite them to try the "Mayan Villas". Authentic "Mayan Palapas" which have been transformed into deluxe accommodations combining the unique Mayan Arquitecture with today's expectations of the highly sophisticated traveler. Definitely a unique experience in an unique place.
