“My Favorite Hotel In Merida”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2012

This is the best overall hotel in Merida.
Excellent rooms, very clean, very comfortable beds, with extra pillows included. Nice bathrooms, showers, soaps, shampoos. They provide free razors and cream if you request it. Bottled water included in rooms. Digital safes in all rooms, mini bar with snacks and drinks, extra charge. Digital secured entry to rooms. I felt very safe in this hotel. You must take an elevator to access the room, so no wanderers can even get to it. There is a security guard there. Beautiful wall paintings in hallways, amazing pool, with music system. Excellent fitness center. All very modern amenities. Very refreshing to find after seeing some of the other hotels.

Free high speed internet, in rooms. Amazingly fast too.

Amazing breakfast and dinner buffet right out front.

I stayed in 20 different places during this visit to Merida and this was the nicest by far.

Room Tip: Tell them you want the floor with the pool and fitness center.

The Hotel work great for our group , we stayed for one night to recover energies and continuo with our excursion in Mayan Land; The beds are great with Wi Fi (Internet is important these days you know) and the breakfast buffet was excellent, the all group really enjoy it.

After breakfast the all group was ready to enjoy the beautiful Merida Downtown and then continuo our journey.

It has been another great stay at this hotel, their breakfast is amazing, internet wifi is free, people are very nice, and always happy to help you, there shopping across the street, rental cars etc. Walking distance from Montejo, fitness room is nice in front of the pool.
Bar at the lobby is Ok some times a bit to hot, since is close to the door, but the bartender is a nice guy and will give you great service.

We were looking for a hotel nearby the downtown and we've chosen this one, we were surprised that is not at a walking distance, but we really preferred this since it's located next to Paseo Montejo Av. which is a pretty nice avenue to walk. The service is really good and the breakfast is delightful that even the locals enjoy. You'll have a very good time to rest and eat.

I found this hotel to be comfortable and well appointed. the centre is some way of, but you do not need a taxi. The room was large with two king beds, tv, coffee maker etc. Breakfast was excellent and had everything one could desire. The fruit display was awesome. Wifi is available.

While it is far to the old square, it is walkable. We did it often. It is worth it to be right on the paseo de montejo! Easy and close to wonderful restaurants. Rooms clean and have everything you need. Breakfasts are incredible.

Room Tip: Must eat at la Pigua... Amazing fish. Also close to a great, I really mean it, italian restaurant...

I've stayed here a number of times, every time I travel to Merida. The staff is very pleasant and accommodating. The breakfast buffet is superb with many traditional Yucatecan dishes - you can ask for huitlachoche quesadillas at the egg station. The rooms are clean and nicely appointed with flat screen TVs, free wireless internet. The pool is lovely with the exercise room looking out towards it. In front, the Arboleda outdoor restaurant buffet has cook to order stations and the seating area allows you to relax under large trees with live music. The weather is perfect for outdoor eating. There is a small mall across the street, convenience store on the corner. Other fine restaurants such as La Pigua are walking distance as are McDonalds, Walmart, Chedauri (grocery) along the famous Paseo Montejo lined with colonial mansions. The next traffic circle down has a huge bas relief Mayan sculpture that is iconic for Merida (that is also where McD and the grocery are).
