While visiting Merida for a couple of days to trace family roots, I decided to stay at a renovated property that has been attracting attention and receiving recognition in leading magazines such as Conde Nast Traveler (September 2012 issue), Vogue, Architectural Digest and others, Rosas y Xocolate. From the moment I entered, I knew the property was uniquely special. Every detail from the paint colors on the walls (that reminded me of Piero della Francesca muted tones), the unique lighting, the well-curated shop, the art collection and not to mention, the fabulous design in the rooms, I was totally smitten. Never mind that the owner alone will steal your heart. Mr. Carol Kolozs welcomes each guest as if he had known them forever and when they leave, they feel the anxiety of separation from a great hotelier, designer and art lover. The hotel is clearly a passion for Mr. Kolozs, who constantly toys with ways to improve the property, consider the next art exhibit he will offer and taking care that each plate served to guests is a work of art in itself. Rosas y Xocolate would be unique in any sophisticated world capital setting, how lucky that he chose Merida. This experience was only matched by my finding a stone engraved memorial to my 2nd great grandfather within the Cathedral of San Ildefonso in Merida, the oldest in the Americas.
