Well worth the time and money!

We chose the ten am tour and were fortunate to go on a cooler day. It would probably be quite hot there in the spring and summer. What a lovely property! Our tour guide, Juan, spoke perfect English and was informative throughout the tour. There is a lot of walking and stairs up into the hacienda museum, so it may be difficult for people with problems walking or using canes. We really enjoyed the history of the hacienda and then learning about the henequen production. Not only do they demonstrate all aspects of the henequen production as it was originally done totally by hand, they also walk you through the machine production, demonstrating how many of the machines work. Then you hop aboard a “truck” pulled by a mule for a trip through the henequen fields, arriving at an old Maya house to meet an elderly man who has worked at the hacienda since his youth. Then on the truck to a lovely blue water sparkling cenote underground for an hour long swim or rest. For those not interested in the cenote, there is a bar for drinks and several areas to sit and relax. The cenote was relaxing and refreshing, not too cold! One you are floating inside, it looks much larger than from the stairs to enter the cave. It was a wonderful tour and we would definitely go back again!

This schedule worked really well for an overnight stay:
We booked a 1pm tour, so arrived about 12:30 so we could eat light sandwiches we brought with us. We had our cenote-swimming bag ready to go too. (You do have to haul that around as you walk the tour, so keep it light.) Tour is excellent and the cenote wonderful as others have said.
Back to the casita for cocktails (there's a tiny fridge so BYOB), a break and a walk around the beautiful grounds.
Dinner was very nice, but take note: it was a fixed-price (about 400 MXN each) with one choice of salad, one of soup, two main courses, and 4 desserts. All were excellent but the small selection surprised us. Perhaps there are more choices at peak seasons; I don't know.
A quiet night in the casita (this is not a place with lots to do!). Someone else mentioned the loud air conditioner and I'll confirm that; it's like the contractor installed industrial units designed for offices. Bring ear plugs; you'll be fine.
The main pool is VAST. Photos taken with wide-angle lenses always make pools look bigger, so look at a satellite picture. Two big end sections are shallow for kids; big center section is DEEP.
Someone wrote there's nowhere to drive to for sightseeing; you're not far from Ticul (town of shoes and pottery) and the Pu'uc and Convent Routes. But mainly Sotuta is a place to get away from everything.

Very cool experience. A little too expensive- definitely charging gringo prices so that took away from the experience. We loved the cenotes, so definitely bring a bathing suit. And non slip shoes because it’s very steep going down! There’s also nowhere to buy drinks until u get to the cenote, so bring water.
Wonderful day trip

This tour of a an actual 160 year old working sisal hacienda was a wonderful
Experience , a must see , the centre to swim in at the end of the tour is most refreshing . Ivan was our guide and he did a wonderful job of explaining and answering questions in both Spanish and English . We found it difficult to drive to
And find tho , better driving directions and GPS coordinates on the advertisements and website would be a great addition

Wonderful tour by knowledgeable interpreter. It was nice to see old hacienda and how sisal is made from agave plant on machinery that’s over 100 yrs old. The restaurant had wonderful food. We all enjoyed our time here.
