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

+: great location right in centre. Very nice building with beautiful interior patio with a nice pool. Very welcoming hosts with very helpful suggestions! Would happily recommend. The nice welcome beers were very appreciated;) -: no breakfast, rooms style slightly old fashioned but comfortable and great bathrooms

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at the Luz En Yucatan. It is a really special hotel. Their website was what really drew me in - I love their irreverent sense of humor. Plus, their “relaxed and casual” policies were really appealing. They don’t require a deposit or a credit card number to hold your reservation, which is... More

Great small hotel in the center of Merida just two blocks from the old main square. Nicely decorated large rooms. A very nice small pool. Historic building. Lots of restaurants in walking distance. Great overall location for visiting Merida.

I think I would return to Merida just to stay at Luz en Yucatan again. This hotel was perfect for us (a couple, age 28), and made us fall in love with Merida. We had a large poolside room on the ground floor with two queen beds, AC, a fridge, coffee maker, and small poolside patio with a hammock. The... More

Considering the great reviews from tripadisor, I actually expected more. Tom, the owner, is very helpful and nice, and so is the staff. The hotel is in a historic and pleasant mansion. The pool is the most essential place, because there was a terrible heat, 41° Celsius. The room, poolside casita with terrace, have a nice terrace facing pool, but... More

Owned by former tour guides, this property has been tastefully restored, with beautiful and unique features and many lovely touches that other reviewers have well described (water, beer, tequila, pool, terraces). We stayed in two different rooms, and loved them both, although we might have appreciated having a window to open to the morning air. The staff is well-trained and... More

Last year we stayed here, and vowed to return with our adult children, as Merida is an often overlooked destination with a lot to offer. We loved the location and the ethos of Luz and wanted to share the experience. This time we were given two poolside rooms, which were just wonderful. Each had a small patio, which were very... More
