My sister and I just returned from a lovely week-long stay at Hotel Julamis. This hotel was perfect; it had everything we needed and was close to everywhere we wanted to go. Our second-floor room was beautiful! We met so many lovely people during our stay, which was facilitated by breakfast in the courtyard every morning and tequila happy hour... More

I have visited Hotel Julamis many times now and do not have a reason to go anywhere else. Chef Alex and his wife Mary are so wonderful and hospitable that it is hard not to consider them great friends. They greeted me with some champagne to celebrate my belated birthday. It is the best place from which to get to... More

We spent 2 nights in the Julamis Hotel as part of a road trip through Yucatan. The multilingual Alex welcomed us very warmly in German (very refreshing after trying to communicate with some Mexicans in English - and partly failing ;) ) and showed us to our simple but airconditioned room. Not only did we get a fridge full of... More

We stayed here last June at the start and end of an 8-day vacation. The hotel is charming and comfortable, very conveniently located and very safe. Alex is simply the best -- incredibly helpful, generous, fun, and caring. We want him to come visit us in the Bay Area! He made us amazing breakfasts, answered every question we had, and... More

I spent five nights at the lovely hotel Julamis. I made advanced reservations through e-mail and my inquiries were answered promptly. I was able to pay my deposit in advance and then paid the remainder in cash at the property. Note, they do not take credit cards. After arriving at Merida airport I took the ADO taxi to Hotel Julamis.... More

Alex is a terrific host and very, very helpful. Book this hotel and you will be glad you did! Great breakfast and B&B type atmosphere! Merida is a beautiful city and this hotel is a great choice if you like smaller more intimate settings.

Hotel Julamis was the perfect place for my wife and me to rest and relax during our 4-day trip to Merida. Upon our arrival, Alex, the owner, spent time giving us an extensive overview of the area using a map and provided several dining recommendations. I highly suggest taking his recommendations. My wife and I really enjoyed the food in... More

Hotel Julamis is wonderful! It's small, intimate, and feels more like staying at a B&B than a hotel. Alex shared wonderful breakfasts, recommended things to do around the city, and just overall made our stay pretty much perfect. Be aware that they do not accept credit cards.

We have just returned from a nine night stay in the Suite Colonial at Hotel Julamis and we could not have been happier. Our little suite had everything we needed to be comfortable for an extended stay. The sitting room is comfortably furnished and has a little table and chairs for light meals en suite. The kitchenette has a good... More
