One of the (US) owners on our arrival was very rude to our (there were 4 of us) Mexican guide and to my (non-white) partner, asking him whether he was staying there. I imagine that, as my partner was non-white, he assumed that he was just a helper for our group. One has the impression he prefers guests to be of a particular profile, ethnic or otherwise. The same person also decided unilaterally to change our departure time from the B&B the next day (without reference to the four of us and our driver), perhaps because that would allow him to prepare the breakfast at the time when he wanted. If you like that kind of treatment and also being told the breakfast you will be eating, with no alternative (which was offered to other guests but not to my partner), if you like not getting any housekeeping at all on a Sunday (blamed on the Mexican staff who doesn’t work on Sundays), and having peremptory housekeeping on a Saturday (to a lesser degree than the other rooms (I know because I asked the other guests about the standard of their housekeeping on that day)), and the lavatory roll and toiletries not being replaced, then this is the B&B for you. The rooms were comfortable, when they were made up (effectively on 1 day out of 4). This B&B is not close to the old centre, so unless you have a car or a driver you will have to take an Uber. We were very happy when we checked-out. Ralph Picken Sent from my iPhone (+44 (0)7802 387717)…
Wow, what more can we say? Six plus stars!! Don't let the street presence fool you! A true oasis waits you beyond the gate. Beautiful, quiet, tranquil. We were truly welcomed in, arrived as guests and left as good friends of the proprietors Dave and Patrick. The bedroom suites are magnificent, most overlook the pool and the bathrooms have all the amenities as well as an overhead rain shower which opens to a private jungle of vines added to the atmosphere of a tropical paradise. Daily full breakfast was phenomenal and bar service (beer and wine) available each evening on request for a very nominal fee. A full menu of massage services can be easily arranged in a private suite on site. We met very interesting guests whilst staying and for one full day had the entire place just to ourselves. Dave and Patrick are more than happy to assist with any possible need. We definitely look forward to returning next winter!…
An amazing place; great welcome and delicious breakfast.. Had an excellent trip to Chichen Itza organized by Dave. The rooms are very well designed. Nice pool and steam room. You just feel at home and welcomed. Nice location and near from the city center. Highly recommended
Dave & Patrick have a beautiful little oasis in the middle of Merida. They did a fantastic job of making us feel like part of the family from the minute we walked in the door. Cocktail hour by the pool and entertainment from the crew of friendly great little dogs all looking for a pet or scratch. Breakfast was amazing with fresh fruit, granola, yogurt, homemade English muffins (thanks Patrick) and fresh coffee and juice. All advice on where to visit in the city or restaurants to eat were all great recommendations. Don’t forget to ask Dave about his newly published book ‘The Seasons of Grace’ which was such a good read that I couldn’t put it down until I was done. We will be back for sure!
We had the best time at Ochenta Y Dos. The room was beautiful, the pool was glorious, and the food was beyond our expectations. Dave and Patrick went out of their way to make sure we were having a good time, even organizing massages and Covid tests for the trip home. We did 4 different tours with Dave which were interesting and educational. Would 100% recommend a stay here!!
This was our second time staying here and it did not disappoint! Fabulous b & b, beautifully appointed, wonderful atmosphere and the best hosts you could hope for! Dave and Patrick are simply superb at what they do. The 5 M’s (resident puppies) provide endless entertainment. Food and drinks spectacular as always. This is my happy place and I highly recommend it!
My boyfriend and I spent six days in the beautiful city of Mèrida and our vacation was made even more special because of our stay at Ochenta y Dos. The property itself is absolutely beautiful, the room, the shower, the pool, but what really makes this place so special are the owners Dave and Pat and all their pups, each with his or her own unique personality. I don’t think I have ever felt so comfortable at a bed and breakfast before. I feel like we have made life long friends with Pat and Dave as well as with their friends, and fellow guests, staying at the B&B. I was making plans to return before we even left! Breakfast every morning at 9:00 was a feast for the eyes as well as the stomach! Every morning a new treat awaited us. Dinner recommendations and help with reservations were always spot on and extremely appreciated as well. The excursions we took were set up by Dave, he was even the guide for one, were wonderful. Words cannot express enough how truly magical staying at Ochenta y Dos really is. …
What an excellent stay! It ain’t our first time at Ochenta Y Dos, but we still love it there. We have been coming here a few times over the years and the place is as charming as it was when we first went there. Clean rooms, pristine check in, delicious breakfast, personable staff and lots of love and affection from the little puppies. It’s more than an urban oasis! Looking forward to our next stay!
Ochenta Dos is a wise choice if thinking about visiting Mérida...delightful hosts...beautiful decor...great pool...we had a different breakfast each morning and a lovely happy hour/snacks in the early evening!!! Great location close to Paseo Montejo and restaurants shops...thank you we will definitely return😁soon!!!
I live in a beach town and have a very relaxed lifestyle. My wife and I spent a couple of nights at Ochenta Y Dos to get away from our house because we'd been locked down there for a year due to COVID. This B & B is amazing, not only because of the amenities, but also because of the hosts. We returned home yesterday and felt rejuvenated and are already planning a return visit. If you're looking to get away, Ochenta Y Dos is the place to go!
