“True Yucatecan Hospitality!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

Wow, we had such a great time staying at Luz en Yucatan. The accommodations were great and the staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. They called me immediately when I forgot my phone charger so that I could return and pick it up. They saved me a lot of hassle. Besides that, the location is ideal being just a few blocks of the main central square where everything happens.

As other reviews point out, the location is perfect, close to everything and still very quiet. We slept very well. I thought it was nice that you get your own key to the front door and that it does not look like a hotel from the outside. The complimentary drinks tray brightened the early evening. This was not built to be a hotel, so some rooms are without windows, but you get openings in the door. This is quite common in converted buildings in Mexico. Air condition and fans gave comfort. This was our third trip to Merida, staying in other hotels earlier, but Luz will from now on be our place to stay every time we go to Merida. The Cafe Club across the street is great for breakfast or lunch.

Room Tip: You may ask for a room with a window if you are uncomfortable with the old Spanish windowless style...

Just enjoyed a great week-end at the Luz En Yucatan...Perfect location for taking in beautiful colonial Merida...Tom, owner of the Luz was warm & kind, with a great staff......Reasonably priced with a very classy flare! I highly recommend...

While the best value diggs at LUZ are small, pool-view rooms with balcony, hammock and 2 beers in the fridge thanks to the marketing genius that is Tom, the ex nunnery boasts other comfy options at very competitive rates.

Excellent location, parking across the street, good restaurants and convenience stores around the corner...

But best of all, the place is attended by knowledgeable staff, not your ordinary tourist school graduates with a jammed dimmer, so here you are and there you go and all the time with
a nice good vibe and zero obstacle policies.

Room Tip: balcony, pool view rooms are the best deal

There is only one reason to stay elsewhere in Merida: Luz is booked out. It is the best value for money hands down in town. The staff are really nice and will go out of the way to assist you. The complimentary beer and other drinks is also a nice touch.

Luz en Yucatán is really well-located and is a lovingly restored, typical Merida house in a helpfully central location. We stayed in one of the poolside rooms, which provided a peaceful haven after tackling the sometimes tiresome hawkers of Merida around the main square! Tom, the owner, was hugely helpful, providing lots of advice and tips on where to go, what to avoid etc. it's easy to see why the Lonely Planet awarded it 'top choice' in Merida and, for once, this accolade didn't mean the place felt swarmed. Highly recommended.

Excellent, rooms, service, installations, advice, quite, relaxing, right in the middle of town, parking, great beds and hot water. What more can you ask for, especially for the excellent rates given. I have stayed there multiple times, never wrote a report on it until now, for they deserve every star we can give them. Tom the owner is on top of the operation, hand picked each employee and makes sure that everything is just right. The pool is very relaxing and you always meet great travelers, who are interested in art, history, food, traditions and people, so it is a winner. Congratulations to Tom and his team.

Room Tip: All excpet the front room.
