This place is just amazing! - It is situated on the park. What else can I say that others haven't yet? The connection that the hotel has with the surrounding jungle is just magnificent. The Mayan-inspired building architecture is timeless. The place looks like it was built with expert local craftsman You can even notice the exquisite detail they put into the stained glass windows. We were unable to use the private entrance to the park. This was apparently due to the COVID19 restrictions in-place at the time of our stay. But the public entrance is only about a 5-minute drive by bus or private vehicle. While the place is pricier than others in the area, in my humble opinion, it was well worth-it.

We stayed overnight at The Lodge. Right from check in the service was excellent. Our accomodations were excellent as was the food in the restaurant at the lodge. Another great feature is the private entrance from the Lodge property in to the archeoalogical ste. Be sure to sign up for the sunrise tour. It is worth every bit that they charge to be in the site for two hours before the general public. The guides were very good at explaining the history of the site and of the Mayan people

We had a fabulous stay! The lodge’s lovely bungalows share the property with the Mayaland Hotel and sit scattered among beautifully manicured gardens and grounds. We enjoyed an outstanding Valentine’s dinner at the hotel’s restaurant “El Mural”, it was one of the best meals we had on our whole trip, and the wait staff provided extraordinary service. We also booked the Chichen Itza sunrise tour, which was a fantastic experience. The archeological site is simply magical at this early hour without the large crowds and our wonderful guide Bibi provided such a memorable tour. Our highest recommendations!

The main reason to stay here is to take advantage of the hotel's private entrance to Chichen Itza and the ability to book the 5am sunrise tour, which was truly amazing (seeing the moon set and the sun rise over the ruins, and have a couple hours access to the park before it's open to the public.) I think there is only one other hotel that offers this. For that privilege you will pay quite a bit more (hotel rooms were about twice as expensive as other nearby hotels, and the tour is $75 US per person). You probably only need to stay there for one night. The hotel itself is pretty and our room was spacious and comfortable. The staff were helpful and friendly. It's a self-contained resort so you don't have much interface with non-touristy things. After traveling in Mexico for five weeks we appreciated having a day that was very easy and chill, even if it was very touristy. The food is fairly poor compared with anything else we had nearby or on the Yucatan peninsula — both Mexican and Western — but it suffices for a couple meals. We also went to the planetarium show. I was suprised they charged for it, and it was myeh (mostly a way to spend some time if you're not at Chichen Itza or going somewhere else).

Thanks for your visit. Come back with more time to enjoy all you mist. The sunset experience is unique, as are the many wonders that are less than 2 miles from our resort: The Caves of Balancanche; The Ik'kil Cenote, perhaps the most stunning of all cenotes in Yucatan; A Vintage Land Rover drive through our own rain forest, with vestiges of mayan temples yet to be consolidated, as grand as those you visit today. Hasta la vista.

Charming old hotel with spectacular gardens. Confortable bedroom. The best is really that you can select to eat inside or out. Buffet food - big selection - but not overly exciting. Gift shop with good variety. Special entrance from the hotel into the archeological site.
