This refurbished hacienda with a butter-yellow exterior has beautiful gardens and an inviting pool surrounded by palms. Connected by winding pathways are 28 cottages, all uniquely decorated with the owner's artwork, reclaimed furniture, hammocks, and rocking chairs. Rooms don't have TVs, Internet, or phones, but there's satellite TV and Wi-Fi in a common area. The property is filled with hidden treasures, including a small chapel, a sacred cave, and a gift shop that donates
100% of its profits to local communities. The on-site Yaxkin Spa is directed by a Maya healer, who uses natural ingredients to cleanse the body from toxins (the two-hour Kukulcán treatment has earned the spa multiple awards). Pre-screened guests can stay at no charge, provided they join the hotel's volunteer program for one to six months.

This place is a great place to relax. I am a earth friendly type of girl and love seeing beautiful flowers and listening to birds chirp over a nice breakfast which I found all available here. The food was very good and the prices were reasonable. All the staff was very friendly. The spa was one of the highlights of my trip I had a deluxe facial treatment that was AMAZING! It really made me feel rejuvenated and at peace. There was also a little cute
boutique were I was able to purchase souvenirs for my friends and family back home. Some of the proceeds from my purchase in the boutique went to the Maya Foundation. The rooms were nice and clean, nothing was below expectations. The mattress was very comfy and when i checked it out to my surprise it actually had a layer of memory foam. I will come back considering my great experience.
