Enchanting 16th century hacienda with original Mayan stone carvings, perfect for history lovers. Just a ten-minute walk away from Chichén Itzá.

Hacienda Chichen is an enchanting 16th century conversion is within easy walking distance of the world-famous Mayan ruins of Chichén Itzá and yet epitomises the peaceful, historic ambience of Mexico’s hacienda hotels. Mingling colonial details with traces of a far older period in the country’s past, the hotel even features original Mayan stone carvings hidden amidst its buildings and gardens.

There are 28 guestrooms, divided between rustic cottages dotted about the grounds and the main building. Rooms are very stylishly decorated, with iron bedsteads, a large private bathroom and a tiled terrace complete with rocking chair and hammock. There is also a pretty patio restaurant beside the pool, and another dining option and sitting room in the main building.

There's a traditional Mayan spa and an organic garden, abundant with tropical fauna – much of which can be traced back to the plant collection of former owner and site archaeologist Edward Thompson.

  • “The Hacienda Chichén was absolutely wonderful - the rooms, the gardens, the pool, the staff, the food etc etc.. ”

    DC, Kingston Upon Thames
  • The Hacienda Chichen Resort is perfectly situated by Chichen-Itza with beautiful rooms and gardens. The food is excellent, but definitely priced higher than most restaurants in the area. A walk around the grounds was delightful and the manager went out of his way to recommend additional tours we could go on (both the early morning walk to Chichen-Itza and the bird walk were great!)

Our expert's view

Hannah Waterhouse - Travel Expert

Hannah had an early introduction to Latin America when her family moved to Ecuador and she returned to study in Buenos Aires for a year before backpacking across the continent.

Apart from the beautiful buildings of this 16th century hacienda, one of the main draws is the lush gardens on the property, along with a sizeable pool. There is a trail from the hotel to the ruins of Chichen Itza if you want to get there early before the crowds and you can buy the tickets directly from the hotel.
