The minute you walk in off the quiet street, you know you have entered an oasis of peace and quiet. The sounds of birds and the fragrance of the lush foliage will make you forget the weariness of travel and take a breath of fresh air.
As you enter the lobby, which is also a library, restaurant, and bar, you will get a sense of the tranquility that awaits you. The large palapa roofed space is inviting…even the resident parrot adds a tropical touch!
The accommodation consists of individual bungalows which are private and charming; no two are exactly alike. Most have their own terrace, and the décor varies from Jungle to Maya, Asian, Colonial, and Safari. There is also a new wing with two spacious guest rooms. All rooms have a private bathroom with hot and cold water, and most rooms have air conditioning. There are also two houses for rent, each with a full kitchen.
The hotel has something for everyone who is looking for a peaceful getaway, and yet you are within a short stroll to the lovely centro of Izamal. Rates include a delicious full breakfast including fresh fruit, juice, and coffee, an honor bar with beer, soda, chips and water, laundry service, a natural rock bottom swimming pool, inspired by local cenotes, ample space around the pool to lounge about and take in the sun, and hammocks around the property for resting or reading. If your day of walking around Izamal has given you tired feet, their restaurant, which is open for dinner 7 nights a week, has a varied menu with a mix of Yucatecan-influenced cuisine and selections from the best cuisine of the world. For dinner, please give at least an hour’s notice so that they can prepare your meal “just for you.” Plus, there are additional services available on site including massage, yoga classes, Temascal steam bath, astrological readings, Maya lessons and Spanish lessons. Free Wi-Fi is available in the lobby, and free private parking is right across the street.
Emily Navar and Alfred Rordame are the owners of Hotel Macan ché Bed & Breakfast. In September 2005 they moved to Yucatán to operate the hotel in the colonial city of Izamal. In addition to hosting guests from around the world, they offer a space for group and individual retreats where participants can explore their self-study surrounded by the archeological wonders of the Mundo Maya.
