Accommodation rating: Luxury
The Hacienda Temozon was once a private family-run sisal estate, and had its heyday in the 19th century. It has been restored to a luxurious hotel full of character. The hacienda's exquisitely furnished twenty-six rooms and suites offer guests a real experience of the grandeur and affluence of the past, truly evoking a feeling of the era of the grand colonial estancias. Much of the original decor has been preserved, from the intricately decorated floor tiles (imported from Italy on board the returning sisal boats) to the picturesque red and yellow mineral pigments used to colour the stucco walls. The dining area and lounge is located on a veranda overlooking the gardens and old machinery rooms to the rear, which are magnificently lit at night. With spacious gardens, a spectacular swimming pool and a 17th century church, this is an ideal place for relaxation or the starting point to discover the surrounding Mayan architectural sites. The hacienda is located approximately 45 minutes by road to the south of Merida.
