One of the stops during the trip I've made last December in Mexico, was in Merida, Hotel El Conquistador. The city is absolutely gorgeous, with peaceful and hospitable people, but the hotel has not much words to say. The hotel was recommended by my travel agent. I checked it on TripAdvisor and the rank did not seem very bad, so... More

Arriving in Merida after a ten days roundtrip in Mexico, we were, for the first time in Mexico, met at the front desk with smiling faces. A very nice welcome, and in fluent english! All over, the service was very good, rooms were clean and with good size. Breakfast was good, but when we had dinner in the same room,... More

Made a last-minute itinerary change to stay in Merida for Christmas Eve and El Conquistador was one of few places with availability. I don't normally give negative reviews, but this place was very disappointing. While staff was pleasant enough, after walking through unusually (strangely) dark hallways from elevator to get to our room, as soon as we opened door, we... More

the only place in mexico that actually provided us with the three beds we asked for. rooms were large and airy. noisy if we kept the windows open. no views. staff were so so, no great shakes. meals were expensive and not good. surprisingly the breakfast was nice. all in all an okay stay.

We have always visited the hotel's restaurant and have always enjoyed an excellent meal offered during the "Sunday Family Buffet". Just last Sunday my wife and I decided to pay them a visit. AWFUL is not exactly the best word to describe it, but awfully worse would be better. Insufficient food for all guests, a typical meal mixed with remains... More

Well, hotel El Conquistador in Merida, Mexico is quite OK and I wouldn't have any remarks, perhaps, if were not surprised with fact that there are more lifts for personnel than for guests. And that's the only objection on my part. The fact was we came there together with very big group and by lifts there was a bit crowd... More

I had to stay here as an 'emergency' since the hotel I had already booked online was awful, and this was the only one with availability and a good price. It is definitely not a 5 star, but the personnel was always friendly, the room was ok, clean and quiet, the rooftop pool I did find gorgeous. They also have... More

It is a nice hotel, very well located, with generous size rooms. The hotel offers a great buffet breakfast, and it has a gym and a pool. That's the good part. The hotel is noisy. Its over a main street, and the windows are not sound proof. The doors and walls are not sound proof either. I could hear the... More

This hotel was booked as a part of our private tour by our travel agency in Mexico. It is a great great, clean hotel with one of the best rooms I have ever stayed in. Food variety for breakfast was out of the world. Rooms are so big and the furniture is so well arranged. Bathroom is a nice size... More
