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

This was a fantastic little hotel in Merida. It's in a converted monastery so the decor and atmosphere are gorgeous. Each room is different and it has a lot of charm. We stayed in a private terrace room and had a hammock and private terrace all to ourselves. There were two cold beers waiting for us when we got in,... More

We stayed at the Palacio room with an exclusive outdoor patio overlooking the pool. It comes with a full kitchen, but no need to cook because there are good restaurants all around especially Chaya Maya half a block down the street. Sometimes you get the meet the owner, who by the way is very nice American owner and his staff... More

This hotel was simply fantastic. Right in the centre of Merida, yet had a really tranquil feeling about it. Rooms were fantastic, with everything you needed and decorated beautifully. We were left a beer each chilling in the fridge when we arrived, perfect! The pool was lovely, and always quiet, there is no bar or restaurant here but there is... More

Why? (Based on our stay of 2 weeks) Location: In Centro, but also just next door to the coolest Plaza in Merida, Plaza Sta. Lucia, that has the best restaurants and best music events in town. Service: Tom & his staff will help you arrange pretty much anything Merida has to offer, cheerfully, & with reasons for their choices for... More

I'm not going to repeat everything that's already been said but I will say it's all true! Great place, great staff, great location. They also give you info including a map of the area, recommendations for restaurants and other handy tips for staying in Merida.

On a visit to the Yucatan region I visited with my girlfriend and we opted to stay here based on Trip Advisor recommendations. We were not disappointed! The room we had was poolside, very spacious and with a private area by the pool and a nice bathroom. We were greeted with some cold beers in the fridge and offered a... More
