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

This place had nice rooms, lovely hot shower, lovely pool. nice beds, nice pillows good wi fi, safe, and a nice restaurant. The staff were lovely as well. The place is busy at night as large bus crowds eat here as well. Avoid the spaghetti marina as it is full of cream +++ which can play up with the bowels... More

My first time in Merida, Yucatan. I came for a two day stay at this hotel and ended up staying four. From the front desk staff, to the administrator, they all made me feel welcomed, and everyone would go out of their way to ask me and make sure that I felt comfortable. They made my stay, a pleasant experience.... More

Stayed a few nights here. Relaxed and laid back hotel. Room was clean, secure and overlooked a small central pool. Admin check in was efficient and the room clean and comfortable. Housekeeping made it interesting with bedding displays each day. Very central location for the main squares where the action is. Merida uses the American block system, so you only... More

Hotel was beautiful, but administration was not. First they immediately charged three rooms on my VISA card for four days because I reserved the rooms for three couples who expected to pay upon checkout. They refused to remove the charge until the other couples paid in full in advance. Second they nickel and dimed us for the whole stay. Water... More

Merida is not what one would call a 'tourist' town. It is extremely shabby except for the public areas. Having said that it has its allure and I found the children who interviewed me for a school project simply charming. The hotel is situated away from the centre and walking to it one is chocked by car exhausts as the... More

Very helpful and friendly staff, I had a couple of slightly odd requests which they helped me with. It isn't exactly modern and could probably do with a bit of a refurb, but the rooms were clean, the pool was nice and the food wasn't bad at all.

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
