One of our favourite stays on our three week trip. The hotel is a characterful, old building and a visual feast with interesting nooks and crannies. It's quiet, because it is orientated away from the street front. The small pool is in a lush planted, brightly-coloured courtyard, overlooked by some of the room balconies and terraces, which are arranged over... More

This hotel is one of the best hotels we stayed at during our three week trip. The hotel is a whole courtyard with rooms on different levels. We spent three nights in a studio apartment type room and one night in a double room, since I got sick and we decided to stay an extra night. The decor is excellent... More

Great hotel in great location! I didn't spend much time in the room but whatever interactions I had with the staff, was very good! I would like to warn people of the scams that happen around the Gran Plaza. Please read the reviews in this post - http://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g150811-d4557615-Reviews-Mundo_Maya-Merida_Yucatan_Peninsula.html in order to avoid getting scammed!!

Really lovely accommodation, beers in the fridge to welcome guests and a water cooler in every room. A fantastic location with really friendly staff who 'go beyond the call of duty' to help and guide you. Brilliant stay, we were sad to leave.

This was the second time we stayed at Luz En Yucatan and we loved it! So very clean, love the decor. beds are comfortable and the staff is always willing to help you with a smile as they will always address you by your name which is an amazing personal touch.

I had the pleasure of staying at the Luz with a work group and it could not have been a better experience! The hotel is so charming and very centrally located. When you walk in the door it is amazing what is behind such an unassuming facade. The Luz is truly a sanctuary right in the middle of the city.... More

The Casa de Luz is heaven on earth. Our 3 night stay was too short and we wish we had more time to spend in that house. The location was wonderful, the private pool heavenly, the house very clean, the service friendly and impeccable. Everything clicked here. Well done Donard and staff!

We spent 7 nights in Luz en Yucatan in July 2015, 5 nights before and 2 nights after our roundtrip through the south of Mexico. Luz is the perfect place to stay in Merida. Very close to the city center, possibilty to park the car safe... and returning from the hot and busy city once you close the door behind... More

We doubted the hotel could live up to its great reputation - but it did! Our family of 4 spent 2 nights in the Palacio room. It was a large room with 2 Queen beds and a full kitchen including our own drinking water fountain. We had our own terrace with table and hammock overlooking the pool. There are countless... More

Luz en Yucatan is ideally located, 4 blocks from the main square and meters from several good restaurants. It offers large comfortable apartments, including hammocks and sitting on private terraces, cosy lobby spaces and a beautiful walled swimming pool area that makes you completely forget that you are in the center of a million inhabitants city. The staff is friendly... More
