My wife is from Mexico and I have been to the Yucatan several times, but this was our first time in Merida and I am sure it will not be our last - and we'll be staying at Casa Lecanda again. Casa Lecanda is the perfect welcoming to Merida for it's proximity to town - both new and old quarters... More

Magical little oasis in the heart of Merida. Peaceful, great architecture, attentive staff, great food and always quiet. Access to Merida sights and sounds is only a door step away. Day trips to the ruins. Highly recommended.

This charming boutique hotel boasts an attention to detail that goes above and beyond. The property is meticulous and the rooms, restaurant, pool, and staff are all top-notch. If you are looking for an elegant and relaxing place to "come home" at the end of the day, this is it.

This is a boutique hotel at it's best. It's visually beautiful and well run. The food has an Italian feel and is as good as Italy. They do fabulous Margarita's. The rooms are dark but beds are comfortable and I slept well. It was a very memorable experience. Enchanting!

Great, stylish seven room inn. Lovely pool, delicious food, comfortable rooms, excellent location. I can't think of a better place to call "home" in Merida. All the raves about this place are justified.

This hotel had a great feel about it from the moment one enters. The courtyard is beautiful and the room we stayed in Lucia, on the balcony level, was great. The room had very high ceilings and was cleverly designed as it was fairly small but did not feel small. The use of skylights in the room and bathroom were... More

Another gem discovered through Tripadvisor! With the colonial architecture in Merida you often really have no clue what type of building you're walking into or its size. Walking into Casa Lecanda you are surprised by a gorgeous and meticulously designed boutique hotel. It seemed like there are more staff than guests and though the staff made every effort to be...

Central location within the old town and a few minutes walk to the centro. Tall, cozy rooms surround a central pool - true to the traditional style of the area and adding to an elegant home stay feel. Good breakfasts served poolside or in the well appointed dining room, and the mature gentleman tending the small bar made delicious tamarind... More

Built in a completely restored traditional Yucatecan home, the hotel has been designed to retain the original Meridian style with points of European luxury so prevalent in the golden age of Merida’s Sisal barons. Painstaking attention to detail, architecture, and landscaping provides guests with a uniquely local experience and a sanctuary within the city; a refuge of serenity, privacy and relaxation. A place our guests can call home as they reach out and discover all the beauty and magnificence that the Yucatan Peninsula has to offer. ... more   less
