The hotel is beautiful and perfectly located next to the Plaza Grande and cathedral in the centre of Merida. It was built in the 17th century as the seminary for the cathedral. As such it is nicely proportioned with graceful arches and high ceilings. The modern additions (TV, WiFi, plumbing, pool, aircon) all worked happily for us. There is no... More

Arrived at this central hotel & was shown to a room on the 2nd floor & from that point it was sadly downhill. Dealing with the good points first, the small room was clean, the beds were OK (1 double & 1 single), the breakfast was just about adequate (tea, orange juice, scrambled eggs & toast) & a modern TV...

5 of us stayed here for three nights in March having three rooms. The location is very convenient and its fine for a budget hotel. Our room was fine but one of our other rooms had plumbing issues and we are able to to transfer into a different room. In both of the other rooms the second bed was in... More

Let me preface this horrible review with a compliment to the Caribe hotel of the past. Years ago, I studied Spanish in Merida. I used to go to the Caribe Hotel most days to eat lunch and do my homework. There was a large wrought iron cage in which there were 2 toucans who would hop around, eat fruit, and... More

My family, with small child, stayed at Hotel Caribe for four days over the recent New Year. We had a miserable experience attempting to check-in late evening, after being told our reservation was cancelled and there was no more vacancy. Receptionists changed the reason from not arriving before 5pm to credit card authorization not confirmed – even though Booking.com reservation... More

Pleasant family run hotel, very near the main square. Charming, old fashioned, no lifts, built round quadrangle. Free Wi-Fi in reception area. 5 minute taxi to bus station. Many bars and restaurants in the area. Clean rooms with safe, hair dryer and flat screen TV (no English news). Breakfast good value. No fan speed control on A/C but very effective.... More

I recently stayed here for 3 nights out of a 2.5 week stay in Mexico. It is a beautiful building in a great part of town, but the staff would have to be the most unfriendly of any place I've stayed. There was no customer service. They didn't seem to care about us at all. There was no friendly welcome... More

Like most of the reviews, this hotel is well located and the actual design of the hotel is very pretty and interesting. However, the rooms are in desperate need of updating. Our toilet did not work properly and while they tried to fix it on the spot it was pretty gross. I did not even want to take a shower,... More

This hotel is located in the heart of old town Merida. It is walking distance from cathedrals, government buildings, the university, the market, restaurants and you will find lots of shopping as soon as you step out of the hotel. However, the professional pictures on this site are very misleading. We booked two rooms and ended up on the third... More

We spent the worst 4 days on our honeymoon. Our room was small with a window that we couldn't open so we didn't have any fresh air in the room. The air condition wasn't working very well making a lot of noice. Bathroom need immediately renovation. Very disappointing.
