I recently returned from a truly enjoyable stay at Casa Hacienda Itzimna. I was in Merida with a small production company working on an important project for us. We based ourselves in Merida to have convenient access to nearby cenotes and Mayan ruins. We needed a property that could comfortably accommodate 7-8 people and also have room for us to work (an office space, good wifi) as well as a welcoming space to relax when not working, and Hacienda Itzimna gave us all of that and more.
The house is lovely - a classic Mexican hacienda complete with indoor garden and many authentic furniture touches. There was more than ample space for us all and with two casitas in the back, everyone had both the privacy they needed with the convenience of being near each other. We enjoyed making use of the new grill and between both the formal dining room and the large enclosed patio table - our group had many lively meals in colorful surroundings. The most fun however was meeting to relax in the beautiful pool after a long day of work. The back yard and pool area quickly became our favorite place to be. We also enjoyed trying out the hammocks that are located throughout the property and some of us were even moved to buy some to bring home.
This review would not be complete without a big thank you to Alex, our caretaker who was super responsive when we had a question, needed a recommendation or if anything went wrong. There was an issue with our hot water heater when we first arrived (it worked but had to be lit) and within a day Alex saw to its replacement. He also helped us out by greeting a member of our team arriving when we weren't at the property and even gave him a walking tour of the neighborhood. Alex truly went above and beyond for us and we are very grateful. Thank you Alex!
For those of you that feel strongly about air conditioning, take note that the common areas have fans only but we found that was all we needed and all of the bedrooms have AC.
I highly recommend this property and would return again. Thank you Bertrand and Alex.
