Hotel Overview

Sense of place

With its grand, carved columns, beautiful tropical gardens, and candlelit cobbled pathways, Hacienda Santa Rosa has been restored to its former glory as a nobleman’s mansion. The hotel is committed to eco-friendly tourism, and uses recycled water and grows its own produce wherever possible.

Rooms at Hacienda Santa Rosa

Hacienda Santa Rosa has 11 guest rooms and suites, which pay tribute to the region’s history and culture with hand-carved wooden furniture and indigenous arts and crafts. They feature wooden blinds, unique four-poster beds made from wood and rope, and huge ceiling beams. Some rooms feature an outdoor plunge pool, surrounded by an original courtyard; others look over the hotel’s gardens and pool from a private veranda.

Food & Drink

Food is served either in the elegant dining room, or on the terrace, flanked by grand columns and overlooking the garden. The menu is varied, but the speciality is regional Yucatan dishes, with lots of barbecued meats marinated in traditional spices. After dinner, the Bar El Despacho is a great place for a classic Mexican tequila cocktail as a nightcap.


The hotel has two pools, one in a lovely spot set in the hotel lawn and surrounded by greenery, and another which extends beneath the arches of the hacienda itself, making for an atmospheric swim. Massage treatments can also be arranged.

Activities at Hacienda Santa Rosa

This part of Yucatan is an area rich in Mayan history, and the ruins of Uxmal – an important site of pyramids and ruins dating back over a thousand years – lie nearby. There are many villages surrounding the hacienda where Mayan culture and artistic traditions continue to thrive, and these are great places to pick up a souvenir of your stay or gifts for people back home; staff will happily help you to arrange excursions.
