Hacienda Temozon

Thoroughly grand and atmospheric country mansion, originally a 16th century cattle ranch. The beautifully restored hotel offers 21st century luxury faithful to the historical context.

The most refined of a necklace of countryside retreats housed in restored colonial haciendas, Hacienda Temozón will really make you feel you have stepped back into history – and the illustrious history of the colonial aristocracy at that.

The cliché “lovingly restored” might have been invented for the way haciendas which had fallen into disrepair have been transformed into smart accommodation for visitors exploring the Mayan and colonial heritage of the Yucatán Peninsula. The remains of this 16th century estate, formerly a cattle ranch, have been particularly impressively transformed into a truly first-class choice.

You feel more like a guest at a large country house than a hotel. Neat palm-shaded lawns, a neoclassical, lap-length pool and a stately drive lead to the smart terracotta main building; they in turn are overlooked by the shaded al fresco restaurant on a grand terrace. Rooms are huge yet intimate, with towering ceilings and remnants of frescos and other antique features that reflect the ageing splendour of the original building.

What our clients say

  • Most memorable experience: The live music in Merida, Izmal, Edzna and Campeche.

    JS Winscombe

    AC, West Byfleet
  • Highlights: A day trip we took to Xel-ha where we swam with dolphins. Also, the visits to the main piramids, such as Uxmal

    EP Royal Oak
  • Most memorable experience?: It's impossible to pick any individual aspect; but a number of experiences stood out: the visit to the "voodoo" church at St Juan Chamula (extraordinary and unexpected), the visit to the shrine of the Madonna of Guadalupe on the way to Teotihuacan in Mexico City (similar, and helped understand Mexican history), Palenque (the most beautiful and atmospheric of the pre-hispanic sites), and swimming in the three cenotes at Cuzama near Merida, which we arranged ourselves.

    AR Gospel Oak
  • Most Memorable Moment:  Street dancing and music in Merida, what a lively city! 

    MS, Cambridge
  • Highlights:- We liked the variety of our trip -  ancient Mayan ruins, real Mexican towns and people, and beautiful beaches. It was wonderful to access Chichen Itza from the grounds of Mayaland Resort and get in there early and before it was too hot without any crowds. We loved swimming in Dzitnup Cenote.
