This hacienda has a long and interesting history. It was built in the 16th century for the Spanish conquistadors, bought by a US vice Consul in in the late 19th century who started the archaeological explorations of Chichen Itza which was carried on by the...More
This is my second visit to Hacienda Chichen, this time in a group totaling ten family members and friends. As such, we presented a challenge to the staff in terms of serving meals, location, etc. and they handled each element perfectly. Rooms, service, and meals...More
Great experience to be in a real Hacienda. Service is very good, Rooms are nice. Only thing not so good is that there is no internet in the rooms. Only in the pool and lobby.
Pool is marvelous! Lobby too. It is literally walking distance...More
Lush jungle setting for this historic hacienda. With it's private entrance you can get early access to Chichen Itza before the crowds. We had Heime as a guide and he was the best, he made the visit so educational plus he is a truly nice...More
The hacienda is owned by the family that used to own the actual Chichen Itza site and undertook some of the first excavations there and as a consequence, has its own private entrance to the site. The 30 rooms are dotted around in a jungle...More

Not much to add here; the back entrance is a walk through from the gardens to the right from the hotel and you arrive (after a while) behind one of the pyramids i.e. free entry! I had just gone for a walk so it was a surprise-8am, no stalls or people about. The pool is about 20m rectangular and the best we came across in our tour. Don't stay in a basic room-they are what they say i.e. basic and lack fridge/coffee making and bath. We actually found some of the staff unhelpful and our dinner was spoilt by pressure to tip and annoying serenading, again for money. Breakfast is to order i.e. no buffet and limited. Overall though a great location, pretty, photogenic hacienda, lovely grounds with iguana and birds and good pool.

My family (my husband and myself, two adult children & their friend) stayed at Hacienda Chichen in December 2015. We didn't have any issues with communication; the hotel was prompt with information and rates. We reserved two rooms that each had two double beds in them that were in the same building, which worked fine. As I remember, these are called "cottages," but are really just rooms. I can't remember if there were any real cottages w/multiple rooms in them. Rooms are fine but spare, restaurant is OK but expensive, the grounds are nice, as is the pool. The real bonus to staying there is getting in the back door to the ruins and not fighting car or people traffic if you go first thing in the morning.
