We were lucky enough to stop off at Hacienda Selva Maya on the way back from a private tour to Chichen Itza. We had lunch at the nearby Centro Acuatica on the edge of Valladolid (thanks to our private tour operator). We were even more lucky to have the cenote swim all to ourselves--another small group was leaving when we... More

Hidden away off the beaten path is a wonderful family style restaurant and site-seeing spot. Our tour guide took us there promising authentic Mexican cuisine and Selva Maya delivered "in spades"! Definitely worth the trip if you like to eat like a local.

We had a car while in the Cancun area. Had driven to Chichen Itza in the morning - spent a few hours there, and had read about this place so decided to stop for lunch before hitting Ek Balam. It's about 30-40 minutes from Chichen on the libre road, and about the same distance then on to Ek Balam, so... More

I really appreciated the buffet: you can eat everything you want on the buffet (that was really varied and yummy), so you can try a lot of Mexican food at the same time! Amazing chicken cooked in a banana leave, excellent black beans, good rice and a lot of other thing. But the value added was the waiter: a 20... More

This was a great stop while touring through the area. We had lunch at the buffet, which had great fresh authentic local dishes. The cenote was amazing. The water was cool and clear.

Buffet with lots of options. Be sure to ask the person making the fresh corn tortillas for a couple to make fajitas. The cenote is refreshing and a lovely swim. Even if you think it's cold give it a go! There are cute plecostimus' swimming around too.

We bought a ticket in Chichen Iza from a local guy for $300 (MXN), which included food at the buffet, the entrance to the cenote in the hacienda (with locker & life vests included), the entrance to the two cenotes of Dzitnup & parking in both places. Although we didn't really save any money (so don't worry if you don't... More

Nice array of local Mayan cuisine served buffet style. We visited this restaurant for the first time last week with friends from Australia and it was very nice, beautiful grounds, easily accessible with good food. The cenote was quite a long walk down the stairs for anyone who has bad knees or back.

You would be suspicious of a restaurant by the road where most buses stop but this place is amazing. There is a very diversified buffet including desserts and the food tastes delicious. Eating here come with the bonus of a free entry to the cenote - one of the nicest ones in the region. We came back twice - highly... More

We stopped here as part of our Yuca Treks trip, so was included in our price. As you can see buffet style lunch based on typical Mayan cooking. There were plenty of options and food well prepared and cooked, but not my sort of food, meat on the bone etc, so i ended up with mainly veg and salad. We... More
