Yucatan Peninsula: Mayaland


The large Mayaland resort hotel is just a 5-minute walk from the extraordinary Mayan ruins of Chichén Itzá. It's a bustling and popular place, but its vast and beautifully landscaped grounds mean it never feels too crowded. The spacious rooms and suites are spread over three floors in the 19th century main building and in thatched bungalows scattered throughout the gardens.

There are three swimming pools, six restaurants and several bars. Leisure facilities include massage, tennis and 3km of trails winding throughout the grounds. There is also a spa in the Pavarotti building - built especially for the tenor's stay.

What our experts say

As soon as you move away from the busy reception through the well-kept grounds the atmosphere becomes more peaceful. The higher standard rooms are particularly good, and this hotel is a good option if you are just staying in the area for a night due to its close proximity to the archaeological site.
