We booked here based on the raves on tripadvisor, and were not disappointed.
We spent a full week in the comfortable, pretty studio on the second level. I could imagine staying for much longer and being happy. Our whole experience was top-notch: fabulous location, fabulous service, relaxing "vibe." Welcome beers and courtesy "nightcap" cart were nice, as was unlimited purified water in the room. Merida is a wonderful destination in itself; this hotel is the sort of place that guarantees that you'll long for a repeat visit.
If you like to keep to yourself, the pool area might feel a wee bit too cozy, but it is lovely, and the other guests seemed fine with friendly banter or quiet lounging. The pool is a refreshing splash after a few hours exploring the city or a tour to Uxmal or Celestun. As another reviewer mentioned, don't miss the Museo del Mundo Maya up north. I would also like to recommend Nick Rider's Cadogan Guide to the Yucatan. Although the book is a few years old, his advice on Merida holds up, and he will point you to some fascinating historical tidbits that might otherwise fall off the radar screen--e.g., the two Mayan carved stones that are visible on the wall of the Iglesia Jesus on Calle 60, on the exterior wall that faces the taxi stand.
Tom, Lupita, Estefan, and all who helped us at Luz were great: good advice, thoughtful responses to questions, good tour suggestions, kind and warm, a sense of humor. Check out their web site, too. Charming. Tom, you are a cool dude, even if you defected and went to Boulder for a while.
Thanks, Luz. We'll be back.
The studio on the second level was great. WiFi was speedy; the decor, shower, kitchen are all sweet...
