This is a place where you can actually feel like home, the suite is very comfortable, quite big and everything is working perfectly. The breakfast is delicious, always something different to try. For being friendly and always giving advice and answering every single question about merida I must say... Thank you, Alex!

We had a wonderful stay at this B&B. The whole experience was fabulous.. from our beautifully appointed bedroom to the gourmet breakfasts every morning cooked by the one and only, Alex (owner and chef extraordinaire!). The central courtyard where we had our meals was whimsical and we felt like we were in some secret garden far away from the city,... More

What a charming and quaint hotel! The hotel is conveniently located minutes away from the Historic District. At the same time, Hotel Julamis is such a pleasant contrast to the city's sounds and sights. One immediately feels a sense of tranquility and calmness as you enter the hotel. But perhaps it's the detailed touches that make this place such a... More

We arrived on Mon, 28 April and departed Fri, 2 May 2014 and stayed for 4 nights. We arrived in Cancun and didn’t make the departure time from the airport directly to the bus station at Fiesta Americana (Merida). We had to take a transfer bus to downtown Cancun bus station. We choose the ADO Platinum bus from downtown to... More

This hotel is fantastic - the rooms are lovely and the building itself is beautiful - particularly the courtyard where breakfast is served and the roof terrace. Breakfast was delicious and made fresh by Alex each day. Alex is a fantastic host - welcoming, helpful with directions and great at giving advice. We liked Alex's honesty and preferred this to...

A week in Merida and luckily we found Hotel Julamis and Alex & Mary's amazing personal attention in a romantically charming setting - just what we were looking for! Can't say enough about the surprising and wonderful two-course breakfasts every morning, the tequila tastings on the rooftop deck at sunset, and the lovely way the hotel is decorated. Can't wait...

Hotel Julamis has pretty nice rooms and is in a pretty good (not great) location, not in the absolute heart of the best part of the colonial zone but within a 5-minute walk. Tripadvisor correctly has it listed as a hotel rather than a B&B, as it definitely has the feel and layout of a small hotel in addition to... More

Alex has created the ideal environment to base your travels in Merida and the Yucatan. The hospitality, communication, tips and assistance that Alex provides before and during your stay is invaluable. The breakfasts are amazing, I can't recommend highly enough. Thank you Alex

Julamis is a wonderful place to stay. Alex is a fantastic host, makes the best breakfast in town and unwinding on the roof terrace at the end of the day is a perfect way to unwind. If I'm ever in Merida again, this would be the only place I would want to stay. Five stars all the way.
