We arrived at Luz En Yucatan late in the evening after a long journey from Cozumel, to an extremely warm welcome. The hotel and pool area is beautiful, tucked away behind the streets of Merida. Complimentary beers in the our room, about a gallon of water, and help yourself to spirits in the hotel lobby hallway. A very generous, homely,... More

This was a good choice for a one night stay to get to Palenque. We had two queen beds but one had a saggy mattress. We had a refrigerator and bottled water which was nice. Small pool. Common rooms were beautiful. Attendant helpful, ordered pizza for us to be delivered. Cash only.

This hotel is well located but didn't live up to its reviews. The rooms are not 'charming' or even well or middling well decorated. As I recall, there were totally mismatched bedspreads on the beds, for example. The kitchen in the room was welcome but sparsely outfitted with kitchenware so we didn't use it much. The pool area is nice.... More

I felt an thankful sense of peace and welcoming atmosphere when I stepped into the door of Luz en Yucatan. The weather was hot, but there was a slight breeze flowing through the length of the hotel, which was furnished with comfortable local art and furniture. Our room was very comfortable, and the two beers awaiting in the fridge were... More

Step through a tiny front door on a relatively busy street, and find yourself in a Frida Khalo-type environment, with lots of space and a multitude of charm. We enjoyed our visit here, and appreciated the wonderful colours all around us, the hammocks which were available everywhere (including just outside the entry to our room), the friendliness and helpfulness of...

Walking in your groovy still trendy room and find a hammock and two comp beers is not something I would expect from the typical hotel. Any of the staff at the front desk office is more than happy to advice in whatever visit you might like doing. AC in your room or cool pool is relaxing enough to cool down... More

The perfect place in the center of everything if you are looking for a great weekend in Merida. The Gran Plaza is a short and lovely walk away, and an explosion of new restaurants around the Santa Lucia area makes every meal an adventure. Rooms are large, airy and comfortable, the pool is a quiet oasis tucked away in sun... More

My sons and I stayed here for several nights. Due to my mistake (in booking) we were in the 3rd floor room with no pool view. While room was nice, would have preferred poolside room. (Again, my mistake!) Yet, we enjoyed the stay. Location is close to everything, good restaurants very close by, can walk everywhere. I will be returning... More
