Hotel Mayaland

The Hotel Mayaland sits on 100 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens (the largest of any hotel in the Land of the Maya, Mexico or the Caribbean) in the heart of the archaeological park, with its own entrance to the Maya temples.

Built in 1930 by the Barbachano family, the hotel has been totally refurbished and expanded in the 90's with the addition of Maya bungalows amidst its gardens completed in 1998. You may choose to stay in the main house with breathtaking views of the Maya temples or in our Maya bungalows located among tropical flowering trees.


The main wing of the Hotel Mayaland has 55 rooms and 5 multi-room guest suites. In addition, individual, dual and three-unit villas are nestled among the trees and flowers of the beautifully landscaped hotel. Hand-carved mahogany woodwork and delicate stained glass compete for attention with the many exotic birds and butterflies that are perennial resident guests of our gardens. The villas all have large shaded terraces and verandahs, a perfect place for relaxing after a day among the Mayan temples.


With four restaurants on site, guests can feast on lovingly-prepared Mayan specialty dishes or enjoy traditional Mexican, American and Continental entrees.

Each night our elegant courtyard offers full dinners that highlight the finest cuisine of the Yucatan. Breakfast and lunch buffets offer a wide selection of tasty delights.

The pool-side grill prepares burgers, sandwiches, tacos and other casual fare.

A large portion of the food we serve is grown on the hotel grounds, in our extensive vegetable gardens and fruit orchards


The experience of the Hotel Mayaland is the experience of tradition, style and luxury.

As you lounge beside either of our 3 swimming pools, you may be serenaded by our strolling musicians.

At cocktail hour each evening, our Jarana dancers perform native dances in whirls of graceful color.

Our stables offer horseback tours to OLD CHICHEN.

Private guides are available for an in-depth tour of the magnificent temples of CHICHEN ITZA, and at night the SOUND AND LIGHT SHOW paints a vivid, dramatic picture of the Mayan civilization. Throughout your day our courteous, friendly staff is eager to do everything they can to make your stay with us as relaxing and enjoyable as possible
