Built on a 44-acre hacienda property, this hotel has freestanding rooms separated by carefully tended gardens full of exotic plants and fruit trees. Rooms are sparingly decorated with folk art, and some have carved Mayan stones incorporated into the walls. Orthopedic mattresses and water softeners add a nice touch, and there is also a water recycling system and solar power in parts of the hotel. Spacious rooms have couches and stereos, and several have DVD players, outdoor
showers, and Jacuzzis. For a bit more privacy, request a room at the edge of the lush property; you'll probably encounter the sheep and two friendly dogs that roam the grounds. Just off the outdoor dining area, carved stones have also been used to create a faux ruin above the pool. The restaurant is exceptional, and a breakfast of eggs, fruit, bread, and coffee is included in the rate. A welcome drink and afternoon refreshments are also provided free of charge.
