Luz en Yucatan is a perfect find in the heart of Mérida's historic centre, with very comfortable rooms - some with kitchen, and very friendly staff. This is not the kind of place you would find by walking around looking for a hotel... the main entrance is just a door with a small sign, right behind the Santa Lucia church.... More

I am not sure what else you could want... large clean rooms, perfect location, nice pool and outdoor area, excellent staff. If you are going to Merida just book this place and don't worry about searching any further. Even have a large drum of purified water in each room... simple touches like that just make this place even better!

My wife and I just finished a week long stay at Luz En Yucatan the second week of July. We stayed in a pool side room complete with a kitchen and refrigerator. The hotel was outstanding, the room and grounds superb, and the little touches such as drinking water in the room, ice cold A/C, and the tequila cart really... More

Just a few yards (or should that be meters) from Parque Santa Anna, this property is awesome. Rooms can include full kitchens and all have free wi-fi. The pool is a refreshing oasis with lounges and tables all around. We stayed a week in Rm. 13 which is above the pool, away from the street. The management is American and... More

This was our honeymoon and we couldn't have asked for more.Tom at the front desk was an American like us and was super laid back and helpful. My husband and I really appreciated all his recommendations on where to eat (quite tasty) and he gave us great tips on where to buy souvenirs that were fair priced and hassle free.... More

I can only recommend this hotel. Staff was very helpful. They even recommended us that it is better to skip bird watching trip (so we stayed not so long as previously planned) as it was not the best season for flamingos. We really appreciate their honesty. Tips for restaurants that they gave us were very helpful (we loved evenings in... More

Traveled through the Yucatan with friends last week and for my second trip to Merida, wanted something other than a hostel. We wanted something in the $50 range and Luz En Yucatan was perfect. A little hard to find because of signage restrictions but super accessible to the old historical center. They also have secure parking for a small fee,... More

Recommend this hotel for it's attention to service and a genuine welcome. The room was spacious and well equipped. The pool is in the central courtyard and a little gem, especially after a day of sight seeing or browsing the local shops.

Very friendly and very helpful hotel owner and reception staff with many excellent suggestions. This is as others have stated an oasis of calm right in the centre of Merida. Lovely pool for those essential afternoon swims to escape the heat of Merida. Easy walk to the historic centre of the city. Very nice ‘help yourself’ spirits / drinks tray... More

This is an incredible hotel and an excellent value. Room prices were very reasonable. A/C worked extremely well. I was the leader of a group of 12 birders/butterfly watchers. We spent three nights at the Luz En Yucatan and can't recommend it too highly. My wife and I took a penthouse suite and it was very roomy with our own... More
