The hotel is one of those mansions that were grand in Merida at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries. The lobby, around a courtyard is absolutely gorgeous. Sofas and chairs around in the 19th century theme. Romanesque pillars and a garden in the middle. All the flooring is marble. Very elegant entrance in the lobby... More

We stayed here in 3 persons room with 3 double beds but no space even to open suitcases. so we were jumping over them in the room. Nice but very small pool, very pour breakfast. Staff was friendly but mostly speaks only spanisch very close to city centre would not go here again

Beautiful building unfortunately catering to non-discerning mass tourism. Arriving at 9.30 and interfering with the receptionists flirtations we received a 'fill that in' and a general vague wave at the direction of the lift. Room exceptionally poor for price. Attempting to get good at. 10.30 grudgingly told restaurant could manage something small as special favour. Such grace' Give this place... More

The Gran Real in Merida is carved out of one of those mansions that flourished in Merida at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries. The lobby, around a courtyard is absolutely gorgeous, fit with fluffy sofas and chairs that make staying away from the brutal summer sun a joy. Rooms, bathrooms and breakfasts deserve the... More

We stayed 5 nights at the Gran Real. I thought the hotel was very nice. The beds were comfortable, the air conditioning was cold and the rooms were clean. The breakfast buffet was very good, there are eggs, french toast, danishes and the wonderful fresh fruit and yogurt. The service was typical for Mexico. I really liked the bar and... More

The Gran Real Yucatan is a pleasant looking Hacienda style hotel about a five-ten minute walk to the main square. The service is slow, even at reception, and they are not particularly welcoming, I had to collect my TV remote (did not work so I never watched it) and air conditioning remote at check in to stop people stealing them...

The colonnaded foyer is lovely - and, erm, that's it really. Staff are pleasant. But the rooms are nothing special, bathrooms (as other users remarked) are not attractive. In temperatures of 40 degrees centigrade, we discovered to our horror that the aircon would only go as low as 28 degrees offering no respite from the heat. Food was almost edible... More

We spent one night here during a tour of the Yucatan. The lobby area is lovely with comfy sofas and lovely planting. I have to say we didn't find the reception staff could understand English, but our daughter speaks Spanish so this wasn't a problem for us. The room was lovely, the breakfast fine, although not a buffet as the... More

The Gran Real is located a few blocks from the Cathedral and main attractions of historico centro Merida. Walking in, the lobby area is very impressive with bright lights and classic furniture with a mix of modern. Check in was easy, the staff are very accommodating and can understand English well. The room was a double with two beds, dresser,... More

I was a bit worried about staying here having read the previous reviews but I was very impressed and would definitely stay again. Our room was quite large with a little balcony overlooking the pool. Airconditioning worked well and even had a sleep mode for quiet operation during the night. We ate at the outside restaurant and even though the... More
