The Gran Real Yucatan is centrally located about a 5-6 blocks walk to the center of town (or what they call the Zocalo). The hotel itself could use a lot upgrades as it is a little run down and rough around the edges. In the US or Europe this will be a 2-3 star hotel. I gave it a 3... More

Stayed in for evening meal. As I don't eat meat or fish my choice was slightly limited. However our waiter Cruz was eager to please and asked the chef if he could do me a mixed salad. This arrived and it was huge and delicious. Nothing seems like too much trouble for staff

The hotel is right in the center. It is clean, service is good and the rooms are nice. I prefer the breakfast and the food in the city. The welcome and check out was a nice experience with receptionist Samuel! Best restaurant in Merida to have either lunch or breakfast is La Chaya Maya, on the corner 62/57. Walking distance... More

The staff is professional and friendly, especially Samuel! The room is clean, there are cosmetics, fan and mirror in the toilet. We were pleased by the level of service! If you happen to be in Merida, don't miss it. The location is near downtown. Parking lot is free and closed for the night.

Good location as it is within walking distance of the city centre and restaurants as well. They do offer breakfast, but I would recommend to explore the city for the various options available. Good pool for relaxing after a long day in the sun and amongst the artefacts.

We fell in love with Merida and the hotel was a great place near to the centre. The first room got invaded by ants and so we were moved to an equally good room, both overlooking the pool area. The reception staff were very helpful and friendly. The only glitch occurred when a group was down for breakfast the same... More

Very comfortable, spacious and clean room. Great porterage service, the only place I have stayed where I was given the TV and air-conditioning remotes on check-in and to be returned at check-out. Breakfast offered a wide variety of foods, however the buffet area was very congested due to the design of the dining area. I had dinner in the restaurant,... More
