Guestbook comments from the owner

I absolutely love this place! From the moment you arrive, you are transformed into another world. The beautiful, well-maintained grounds are lovely with exquisite water fountains and breathtaking views.

The staff were incredibly friendly and their attention to detail was amazing. I never wanted for anything because whenever I thought about it, one of the sweet staff was there to ask me if I needed anything. The staff made efforts to make our stay so comforting with little gifts and surprises when you least expect it.

My bedroom was extremely comfortable and I slept better than I have ever slept in my life. Our rooms were always cleaned and the bathrooms were better and more beautiful than any 5-star Resort or hotel I have ever stayed in.

Every meal was better than the next. I don't even eat breakfast normally, however, I would go to bed wondering about what amazing meal would be prepared for us when we awoke. Lunch and Dinner were always delicious and incredibly filling although they weren't fatty or fried, so it was a delightful experience without feeling guilty about finishing every last morsel.

In between lounging by the poolside or reading in one of the cocoon-like hammocks, I was able to visit the on-site spa where I had 2 fabulous massages and an aloe-vera facial which was extremely refreshing. Some of my group did go on an excursion to visit some of the Cenotes and they came back with some fascinating pictures-I'll be doing that the next time I come here.

The Merida airport is a very nice and modern airport and our friendly driver was waiting to take us on a short trip to the Hacienda. As far as safety, I felt safe the entire time I was in Mexico. I will be going back as soon as I can. I have traveled quite a bit and I have to say that this was the most relaxing vacation of my life.

Tranqulity defined

  • 5 of 5

Hacienda Petac could mean tranquility in Mayan for all I know, because that is what I felt during our stay. The archictectural blend of saving some of the old and restoring some of the new was in perfect balance. The tropical vegetation around the gounds and "rooms" to sit in the jungle were great. I particularly liked the flowing and falling water in various places, as it adds to the tranquility of the setting. The Mayan staff are amazing...always with wonderful smiles and sincerity of service. The food, the service, and the stay were all perfect!

Magnificent hacienda, gracious staff, fine food

  • 5 of 5

Hacienda Petac offers the best of the best in the Yucatan and would hold its own anywhere in the world.

Accommodation: Magnificent, clean, spacious, luxurious and unique. So much history in the buildings and the area.

Cuisine: Every meal was superb and the chef did a fabulous job of catering to the vegetarians in the group and those with special requests. The desserts are out of this world – the tastiest freshly made fruit sorbets and ice cream, Mexican flan, key lime pie and Mexican pastries. Luckily the gorgeous pool is large enough for a few laps and the gym/spa (looks brand new) has just the right equipment to undo the damage. Everyone in our group made good use of the spa services, provided just for Hacienda guests. I recommend the 90 minute massage for full relaxation.

Staff: Genuinely nice and always gracious and will tend to every request, including your favorite drinks and poolside service. Hacienda Petac is a very special place and we are planning a second visit.

Overall impression: 5 out of 5. Highly recommended.

Amazing - need more stars to rate Hacienda Petac

  • 5 of 5

My wife and 7 year old son have stayed in many places around the world but honestly nothing (to-date) compares to the service, food, accomodation and hospitality shown to us at Hacienda Petac. Our room was beautiful, with immaculate presentation and service. We did walking tours of the property, enjoyed spa treatments which were as good as any you would get for twice the price in New Zealand (including something they made-up for our 7 year old so he felt a part of the process), visited Mayan ruins and swam in an underground "pool". Ever meal was delicious and they catered to my wifes food allergies completely. Honestly, if it was able to give this another star I would. An awesome place to stay.
