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

This is the best hotel we have stayed during our three weeks in Mexico. They gave us an upgrade for our honeymoon to one of the big kingsize-bedrooms with rooftopterras and open kitchen. Wow! We were supposed to stay only one night, but had to take a bus the day later. No problem for Luz en Yucatan, we could stay... More

We stayed for 5 days during a recent house-hunting trip to Merida, and love Luz en Yucatan. The rooms are spacious, quiet and have very comfortable beds. The shower pressure is good, even on the top floor. The decor is lovely and colorful. The pool is terrific for cooling off. We were given a complementary upgrade to a larger room,... More

We stayed here with family last week and the hotel was perfect and value for money.the rooms are huge and have all amenities. The 2 complimentary beers are perfect for enjoying in the pool after a long day of sightseeing. Loved sharing a drink with other travellers at the end of each day. The restaurant across the road is great... More

This is such a cool place. Not in on the Zocalo but on a smaller, cosier square so that is a great plus. The place itself is gorgeous, the rooms spacious and clean and, luckily, with an AC. Nice guy at the reception, free booze in the lobby and a nice pool. I was sad not to spend a bit... More

Had a fantastic stay at Luz. It is located very centrally so it is easy to navigate your way around Merida. The city tour bus goes from across the main road and the big squares are a short walk (less than 10mins) away. The staff and owners were super friendly and incredibly helpful. I was travelling alone and their advice... More

My husband and I stayed at the Luz May 3rd though the 9th then stayed at Casa de Luz the 15th, 16th, and 17th. Tom and his staff are all wonderful and so helpful. We had 2 cold beers in our fridge upon arrival and the room was spotless. The location is excellent, right near Santa Lucia park, where they... More
