About the Owner
Guestbook comments from the owner
My partner of five years and i decided to leave the cold and damp NYC winter behind us and fly from Newark through Houston to this beautiful city in the Yucatan state called Merida. Not far from Merida, with its open air markets and palatial homes lay our destination--Hacienda Petac. As we entered through the front gates of this beautifully restored Hacienda, we were greeted by our hostess, the lovely Colleen, and her staff, with an exotic and healthy cocktail. We realized that we had come to the right place! It's difficult to put into words the perfection and beauty that are the daily workings of the Hacienda Petac. From exquisite yet simple meals with the finest wines, to service that is not only impeccable - but executed with a smiling sweetness and gentleness that must be part of the native Mayan DNA, we were enchanted! We have never felt so pampered. Our high ceilinged, very spacious room- always lovingly adorned with native flora -was a far cry from noisy Manhattan and we slept better than we ever had. When we finished our long walks, we swam, used the exercise room and/or the jacuzzi (complete with margaritas and the best guacamole we've ever had) and then after dinner played pool, scrabble or our favorite, Scattergory! The game room is HUGE with a wonderful sound system and we were served the most delicious and soporific after dinner drinks there, after which we fell into a deep and restorative sleep. Larry and I had spoken about getting married but never got around to it. The night before we were to say goodbye to this magical place, Colleen was able to bring to the Hacienda four official shamans who, amidst insense and bougainvillea, under the Mayan moon, performed our marriage ceremony. It was a spur of the moment, spiritual connection to each other but also to the beauty and purity of our five days in what i can only call the magical kingdom that is the Hacienda Petac.

- Hacienda Petac's extraordinary setting is complemented by a staff of 23 who create a warm, welcoming environment. They provide all household services, and attend to guests’ touring needs. Rooms and services are comparable to a luxury class resort. Meals are regional specialties, served at times and preferences set by guests, and are included in the rental. The Casa Principal has been restored to act as an anchor for the hacienda’s daily gatherings. Moorish arches, tiled porches and 15 foot ceilings welcome guests into the home’s main salon, dining room, kitchen, bar, library and private chapel. In one building of the former henequen (sisal) factory you’ll find two very large and distinctive private bedrooms, with spacious baths and 20ft ceilings. The factory buildings continue with a 1,200sq ft salon with a pool table, ping-pong and an assortment of games. In an annex, accessed through an arched passageway, is a third private bedroom suite with a dramatic ceiling treatment,spectacular bathroom and an outdoor dipping pool. At the Mayordomo House, located near the swimming pool, the temptation is to linger on the shady porch connecting these two tranquil bedrooms - one with a surprising twist on a Yucatecan tradition. Finally, tucked amid palm trees and ferns is the swimming pool designed to allow for a relaxing day in the sun or a shaded nap in a hammock. The waterfalls and lily ponds that accent the landscaped grounds provide a cooling serenity to this 200acre property. Add the sound of the Mot-Mot birds and pigmy owls that appear daily and you’ve discovered the Petac experience. This is a special place. Unfortunately, due to its original stone pathways, Hacienda Petac is not well suited for the physically challenged. Similarly, for their own safety, children under the age of 8 must be monitored closely.
