Visited this gem in Merida in October 2014. Room was super cute and clean and the grounds were spectacular. I loved the old architecture and gorgeous decorations. Alex (the owner) was beyond helpful and friendly. He spoke numerous languages and went out of his way to help us get acquainted with the city, giving us directions and great suggestions for... More

Stayed here during a honeymoon trip. Upon arriving at the humble front entrance, the door was locked. We rang the door bell, and to our surprise, no one answered. Luckily, I had the phone number written down and I was able to call. A very friendly Alex answered the phone and apologized, as he said he was upstairs working on... More

The hospitality provided by Alex supersedes any we have ever experienced. From the first welcome to the breakfasts in the courtyard each morning, each day was one to eagerly anticipate. The hotel is centrally located which made walking everywhere a breeze. The evenings begin with tequila sampling on the gorgeous rooftop.

Julamis is a beautiful hotel with a gracious host and delicious breakfast. Wonderfully located for exploring Merida. The rooftop space is amazing for daytime dips in the intimate pool and evening stargazing. We will be back!

With thanks to Alex and his hospitality at the delightful Hotel Julamis, our stay in Merìda was made truly enjoyable. The location of the house is just a few blocks from the centre of town, so no need for taxis. The house itself is beautifully decorated, with each room having it's own unique style - check out the mural on... More

The perfect location and atmosphere for a short or extended exploration of Merida and it's surrounding Mayan sites and beach communities. The owner and host delivers the true meaning of customer centric service and provides an unique blend of European and Latin artistry to his culinary creations each morning. Alex is the proverbial fountain of knowledge as to the best... More

Julamis is a beautifully designed hotel in Mexican style with individual and fully equipped rooms. The most phantastic breakfast of Merida is served in a quiet and green courtyard by the former chef Alex who owns and runs the place. Guests can meet during breakfast or later on the rooftop terrace and bar overlooking Merida. We had a wonderful time... More

W have just returned from almost three weeks traveling around the Yucatan Peninsula. Merida is a lovely town and staying at the Julamis was a joy. Alex, the owner, couldn't have been more helpful. He has an extensive knowledge of the region, especially when it comes to food and drink, and his recommendatios were all great. Sunset aperitifs on the... More

I spent a fair amount of time rummaging through websites and reviews trying to find the perfect place for our stay in Merida. This small, intimate, comfortable, clean, friendly, gorgeous boutique hotel fitted the bill exactly... Alex is the perfect host and will go the extra mile to help sort out anything you could possibly need. His breakfast (3 courses)... More
