My wife Veronica and I came here after a long drive around town and a strawberry wine tasting session. The hotel is nestled in an exclusive area far from the snaking road, in a truly beautiful part of Merida. Our room was actually a 3-floor house, with a kitchen and a living room, with a log fire, and a comfortable bedroom - spacious yet cosy, and to get there we walked a little path flanked by well-manicured lawns and pretty flowers.

I could not believe my eyes. What a Gorgeous place in aGorgeous location. We had a cabaña with fireplace. make sure to ask for xtra wood. They have a trout lake where you can fish and they will cook it at restaurant which is devine. The bar area is so cozy, warm and welcoming. The views and weather were to die for. The monkeys are crazy watch out for your keys. Lots to do in the area. The best Guanabana cakes just outside the hotel. I was pleasantly surprised to find such an upscale well thought out charming hotel in Merida. Wish the rest of the country would follow this example. Kids had a blast horse back ridding and fishing. We will be back soon. Thank you ESF! More
