Yesterday night we had extremely unpleasant incident at the reception desk of your hotel. Around 23:00 my wife and I asked to extend our stay at your hotel for 2 days more . Young man at the front desk ,whom we never saw before, said that it is "impossible" and did not make any effort to even try to enter our request into computer. We told him that we have been staying in this hotel already 2nd week and did extent our stay few time and never had any problems. He said that he cannot do it. When I asked him what his name is he refused to give me his name saying that he "does not have to give me his name". When I told him that such a front desk service is unacceptable he started to threatening me that he will call police. When I told him I will make a complaint about his disrespectful and rude attitude he said that foreigners like my frequently insult local people because they feel they can. I told him that such a statement constitute discrimination against a person of foreign origin. I also told him that if he discriminates and disrespects foreign clients then he should not be working in international institution like hotels. I told him that I will address this with the management of the hotel and that for his attitude and behavior he should quit or lose his job as a person unfit to deal with international clients. Next day I addressed the above situation with the lady at the front desk who extended our stay for additional 2 days. I also spoke with the manager of hotel who listen to our complaint but did not even offered one word of apology. We have been staying in this hotel almost 2 weeks and prior to this incident we have never had any problems with the staff who work here are usually very pleasant and helpful. The man responsible for this incident appears to be a new employee as we never seen him before ; his behavior however is totally unacceptable, rude, scandalous.

I am truly surprised to read your review since I am the Hotel's General Manager and in no way you tried to contact me after this unpleasant event happened. I am also surprised to read this since for a very simple administrative matter that you did not accept the hotel´s response, you decided to insult our front desk staff in a very racist and discriminatory manner. It was in such an aggressive way that he had to advise you that he would call the police if you did not behave yourself and stop threatening and insulting him). Our security personnel testified to that. The front desk man has been working for the hotel for 15 years and this is the very first time that he gets insulted like he was, and the very first time that a guest reports him as rude. We totally respect our guests at all times, all of us, but we definitely not accept that our guests insult our staff the way you did and that is why I was expecting to talk to you the next day but we checked out without asking to speak to the General Manager. That is unaccepjtable and scandalous for us too. Our reputation stands for itself for all other guests reading this review.

Gamma is rated a 4 Star, it may be a 4 Star in Merida, but it would be a 2 Star in Cancun. I couldn't get a soda at 6 am because the kitchen is closed until 7. Food is served 7 to 10, 12 to 3 and 6 to 9 pm and there is nothing in between. There is no refrigerator in the rooms, on the 3 rd or 4th use, there was rusty water from the sink, I didn't ask, but I don't recall seeing an ice machine. If you like a soft bed this is the place, we were on the 7th floor with 2 queen beds and a view of the city, there was nothing spectacular about the room, but it was clean and comfortable with ample hot water for a nice shower. One of the dining room waiters told me I was drinking too fast when I ordered another round for my self and my Wife. We had been on a bus for 5 hours after being evacuated during Hurricane Delta last week. The Guys at the front entrance outside were friendly and very helpful in answering questions about local attractions and shopping. We were sent to this property by our hotel in Cancun during Hurricane Delta, per the local Governor, all alcohol was banned, not the hotels fault, but something to consider if you are traveling during this season.

Thank you for your review. I am glad you were satisfied with the service of our staff. Please allow me to give you some information you might not have had while staying at GAMMA MÉRIDA last week. Since it was en emergency due to the Hurricane, we were advised with a very short notice that the group was coming to our hotel. We certainly rushed to have everything ready and according to the emergency, decisions had to be made. We served breakfast, lunch and dinner as per requested by the group leader since we are NOT an all Inclusive hotel as I am sure everybody was aware of this fact. Also, since we are going through the Covid-19 contingency, the state of Yucatan has several restrictions in place so we have to close our restaurants early so the staff can go home (people cannot be in the street of Mérida before and after some hours). This has been in place for serveral months now, we do not get to decide on them. As we do not get to decide about the alcohol ban that was placed during the pass of the Hurricane through the Yucatan Peninsula. We do get to decide if we have to stop serving alcohol if we consider someone might endanger themselves or other guests. We are responsible for everyone safety. The waiters understand that. I understand these were difficult days for everyone, but we all did the best we could to accomodate the groups in such a short notice. We were pleased to receive the appreciation of many guests who where also here during those difficult days. We appreciate your nice comments about our staff and we hope the information provided will help better understand the situation at the time of your stay with us. Kind regards,

We arrived at the hotel after midnight, right from the plane. I wanted to relax before exploring Yucatan. But our plans were not destined to come true. Nearby is a nightclub ... with all the ensuing consequences. At the reception, shrugs ...
