Luz en Yucatan has charm and potential but is let down by its hygiene standards and low spec rooms which will remind you of your days in a college dorm. The house and communal spaces are charming and homely. Our welcome was also excellent and we agree with other reviews that

This hotel is good enough I have booked again. I am not losing sleep over trifles.
