Vacation Paradise in the Yucatan: Hacienda Hotel San Jose

The gorgeous Hacienda Hotel San Jose is set in the heart of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula — a land between the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico, with remnants of the Mayan civilization all around; ruins, like those at Chichen Itza, reveal a devotion to art and architecture with pyramids and palaces. A similar devotion to art shows itself in the sumptuous guest rooms of this fabulous escape. During its restoration, care was taken to maintain the Hacienda’s unique architectural personality while upgrading to top-of-the-line luxury. Thus, you’ll savor 18-foot ceilings with exposed beams and rafters as well as lavish woodwork throughout: on the 10-foot double doors, bedsteads, and cabinets. If you choose, you can sleep the traditional Mayan style — large pegs hold woven cotton hammocks just for that purpose!

On the other hand, modern pampering’s on the menu here, too. Choose from rooms with private terraces, patios, even pools; have a romantic candlelit dinner in an elegant arched room just steps from an expansive common patio, or order a completely intimate dining experience in your room or suite. Your days and evenings can be as full as you like: go dancing in Merida’s town square, enjoy an authentic taco at a roadside stand, or take a boat ride in the Celestun Wildlife Refuge (don’t forget your camera!). Relax with a spa treatment — or a movie on your 32-inch TV. Regardless of what you see as a perfect vacation, the Hacienda staff are ready to provide it; just ask the concierge for anything you want or need. Your vacation in paradise awaits, at Hacienda Hotel San Jose.
