Recent guest reviews

Brilliant service, unbelievable grounds, spa, pools and services. A massive area that combines luxury with classic tradition and timeless experience. Food is well thought out and reflects both the ingredients and the flavors of the region. Solid!

I strongly recommend not to go to this hacienda. Indeed we have faced a bug when we booked via expedia this hacienda. We have never received the confirmation from expedia that our stay was confirmed. Consequently we never went to the hacienda and had to reserve in another place in Merida. In the meantime hacienda santa Cruz has debited our credit card for 4 nights because we never came to their place without calling us or sending an email. When I complained they just replied that they were not responsible for problems with expedia and that we had to find a solution with expedia. Conclusion: they don't care about people or customers, they are just interested by money and took us lots of money for a service they never délibérer.

Went to the Hacienda Santa Cruz with friends for a birthday luncheon. The grounds were gorgeous & tranquil with beautiful flowers and plants. The staff was attentive, informative and some were bilingual. Our meals were exquisitely displayed and delicious to eat. The drinks were luscious.

Went there for a concert String Quartet and had dinner at their lovely restaurant. Could not be more please with the entire experience. The facility is beautiful by day and by night with the amazing lighting. The food is beyond belief, the service impeccable and the concert was lovely. Had a magnificent and magical experience. Highly recommend

We had dinner before a glorious concert and all enjoyed the ambiance and food, which were excellent. What kept my rating lower was that the bottle of red wine came to the table too chilled, and a problem with the table settings. The entree plates are curved at the top in a slight bowl shape, and three times I lost the handle of my fork in the tomato-based sauce when it slid to the center. Grrr... but easy to fix both issues. Efficient valet parking and the grounds are magical.

It is a very nice hacienda in merida. 30 min from downtown merida. The staff is not the greatest but the property is very nice. Food at the restaurant is good, too expensive they take advantage of you because of the distance to downtown. If you are with a large party is worth take an uber to downtowns food is amazing in Merida downtown

We had just a little lunch stop over on our way to Uxmal. With no other guests on site sitting on the nice restaurant's terrace at the back of the main building made us feel like we are in a different world. The local chicken main course was excellent. Staff was very nice and welcoming. The atmosphere and vibe are truly special. We felt lucky to have found this place. Probably also very good for an overnight stay.

Although a little far from Merida center, our stay was excelent. The staff was very professional and atenttive. The restaurant was very good, we enjoyed the mexican food. Our room was clean and spacious.

The best service I have received in my life. The staff goes above and beyond to serve you. Beautiful hotel, beautiful rooms. It is very relaxing. Weddings are nice here and the Hacienda has a chapel. It's a little expensive for traveling solo one night, but worth it if you come with your couple or family.

While I didn't stay here, I would like to mention that the hacienda now has new owners and they are investing a ton of money in refurbishing and renewing the place. A hacienda like this is a real money pit and so it does require some deep pockets. Dinner was great, a very nice restaurant with a small but tasty menu and the service was gracious. When we arrived someone from reception walked out to meet us which made us feel like we were welcome there. Nice!
