A stay at Hacienda Puerta Campeche is a unique experience. It is in a great location just inside the old city walls of the Centro district. The few minutes walk to the city center is wonderful with the brightly painted houses.
The hotel has 15 colonial style rooms and suites, which have been fully restored in the original buildings and now seamlessly blend traditional features with modern comforts and technology. The very spacious guest rooms feature 18-foot ceilings with exposed beams and rafters, comfortable beds and cool tiled floors. Facilities at Hacienda Puerta Campeche include a restaurant, lounge bar and a pool which is a unique feature in itself, with secret alcoves and hammocks hanging over the water.
Stroll through the hotel’s luxurious gardens, with a stunning array of vibrant colors set against old stone walls. Take a wander through Campeche to see some fine examples of beautifully restored colonial architecture and visit some of the museums, handicraft markets and the shady main plaza overlooked by the historic cathedral. After the sun has set, head to a romantic rooftop setting and indulge in the finest traditional cuisine while overlooking cool tones of blues reflected by the midnight sky at the hacienda's La Guardia Restaurant.
Our guest rooms and suites are located in the fully restored, original buildings that have been adapted to today's needs. Most of our guest rooms feature 18-foot ceilings with exposed beams and rafters, 10-foot wooden double doors, comfortable beds, dark, tropical hardwood cabinets, and cool tile floors. Additionally, large, bulbous pegs in the stonewalls hold woven cotton hammocks, for which Yucatan is famous, allowing you to sleep in the Mayan style.
