We had a 2 night stay there on our yucatan tour. A small quiet place just minutes south of merida. The owner is also living there and always available for a small talk with the guets. We visited a couple of haciendas on our tour but this place was simply the the most romantic. Sometimes you need a bit patience...

First at all many thanks for your comments. You absolutely right, all your staff, including manager and owner try to give a nice, quiet and friendly atmosphere at the Hacienda Santa Cruz. For the delay, let me apologize, sometimes take longer to brew a warm coffee. Hope to welcome you soon. Best regards, Yves AMSLER

This is a beautiful hacienda just off the ring road of Merida. It's peaceful and quiet and as soon as we arrived the owner welcomed us as if we were old friends. The food is outstanding, the bedrooms are gorgeous (we stayed in the room next to the chapel). The swimming pool was stunning although we had forgotten that there...

We stayed three nights at the Hacienda this past February and found the property to be very lovely: the hacienda has been thoughtfully restored and there is interesting artwork everywhere. Our room was spacious and comfortable. We especially loved the restaurant and found chef Paul Ramirez's menu offerings to be both inventive and well prepared. The neighborhood is not paricularly...
