Believe the raves! We had a fabulous February visit. All the positive remarks about Alex, true: he fixes a fabulous breakfast, gives great advice for your stay, helps with travel kinks, accommodates a variety of traveler requests and entertains. What a great way to start your day in Merida - sitting with other guests on a lovely shady garden patio... More

We stayed at Hotel Julamis recently for two nights of our honeymoon. As soon as we checked in, Alex provided us with a map and gave us a great introduction to Merida. We ended up taking his restaurant recommendations, which were amazing. The breakfast at the hotel was a great start to our days.

After reading the reviews posted here, we booked a five night stay at this hotel plus an additional one night stay before we flew out of Merida early the next day. We loved this place. It is small (but the rooms are roomy), within walking distance of many of Merida's attractions, run by Alex who is friendly and full of... More

We returned for the second time and stayed a week at this delightful hotel. The rooms we have had have been spacious and the beds comfortable with fluffy duvet covers. The best part of staying here is getting to know one of the most gracious hosts we have ever had the pleasure of knowing. Alex (and his wife Mary) go... More

Loved our short (two night) stay in February with Alex at the Hotel Julamis. It's well located for walking to restaurants and the main square in Merida. It was our first trip back to Merida in 25 years and it hasn't lost any of it's charm. Alex knows Merida well and pointed us in the direction of several great restaurants.... More

A lovely quiet retreat in this interesting City. Alex greeted us with enthusiasm - hugely knowledgeable about the City and the area and able to suggest how best to enjoy it. Lovely room - interesting breakfasts and a Tequilla hour on the roof terrace which was fun and meant we met other guests and exchanged notes on visits and restaurants... More

What a great place!!! Alex made us feel as at home as we do at our home. The location is within walking distance to any of the old town and it's attractions. All of Alex's recommendations for food and shopping were right on. Our first night, on his recommendation, we went to a spot on a town square and I... More

What a lovely place to stay in a lovely city. We stayed for 5 days and felt more like family than guests. The breakfasts Alex makes are over the top, his advice and recommendations were spot on. When we were caught in a downpour while at a restaurant he recommended, he showed up in his with his vehicle so we... More
