We recently spent 2 days at Casa Lecanda. It is one of our all-time favorite hotels. The architecture and design are beautiful. The property is peaceful. The staff are warm, welcoming, and attentive. The food is wonderful. All i can say is we're looking forward to planning our next trip to Merida so we can enjoy the serenity of this place again. Thank you to all the staff that made our stay fantastic.

This hotel had a great feel about it from the moment one enters. The courtyard is beautiful and the room we stayed in Lucia, on the balcony level, was great. The room had very high ceilings and was cleverly designed as it was fairly small but did not feel small. The use of skylights in the room and bathroom were great. The shower was big. The bed was very comfortable. The wifi worked well. The breakfast included was coffee, juice and yoghurt and fruit which was fine for us as we were a but tired of big breakfasts. The hotel and the room smelt so good, they use the Coqui Coqui scents. We did not receive a free drink on arrival as others have noted but we ordered the tamarind margarita and not only was the size very generous it was the best cocktail I have had in Mexico to date. The room we stayed in was very quiet as it was not on the street. The place is really charming and beautiful and not too far from everything. Everything was perfect which is why we gave it a five, but I also stayed at Casa Azul in Merida, see separate review, and although it cost a bit more if I could only stay at one I would stay at Azul as that hotel has the most spectacular rooms where one feels like one is staying in a museum and treated like royalty, and impeccable service and food. Casa Lecanda is also a great place to stay, it's good to see so many good options in Merida.

Room Tip: Lucia balcony room was great, the ones downstairs looked a bit dark.

Another gem discovered through Tripadvisor! With the colonial architecture in Merida you often really have no clue what type of building you're walking into or its size. Walking into Casa Lecanda you are surprised by a gorgeous and meticulously designed boutique hotel. It seemed like there are more staff than guests and though the staff made every effort to be hidden, they were always there if you needed anything. The bartender and chef/kitchen staff were a highlight and the included breakfast was delicious! Our room had every modern amenity but was designed as was the hotel, in a most lovely colonial fashion. The huge walk-in shower was a real treat. I would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone and I hope to return. It is centrally located and after spending the days walking all over Merida, it was so nice to return for a swim, hammock and a drink before going out for dinnner.

Room Tip: I don't think you can go wrong with any of the rooms but we did love our balcony room!

Central location within the old town and a few minutes walk to the centro. Tall, cozy rooms surround a central pool - true to the traditional style of the area and adding to an elegant home stay feel. Good breakfasts served poolside or in the well appointed dining room, and the mature gentleman tending the small bar made delicious tamarind chili margaritas that I'm still trying to recreate a year later. Felt very secure. Parking on the street wasn't a problem. Bathroom was dark, bird noise was loud at dawn without earplugs. The pool was freezing during our winter visit so don't plan on that as an activity out of season.

Visited Celestun for a day trip, interesting to see the town and for lunch though no flamingos in sight. We were fortunate to be in town during a festival and the Merida centre square was full of food vendors, music and dancing. Dining tip: La Chaya was very good for trying basic local cuisine and if you pass an old lady cooking fresh chicken for a crowd of customers on the roadside heading east, pull over and dig in. Visited February 2013.

My wife and I stayed at Casa Lecanda for three nights last week (in early May). From the minute that we walked through the front door, we knew that we had made the correct choice of hotels in Merida. The hotel is truly stunning.

We stayed in "Lucia," which is one of the two balcony rooms. The rooms are accessed by ascending a set of stairs after walking through the common area and courtyard. The room was a nice size with a very comfortable bed. There are two ceiling fans in the main room and a fan on the balcony sitting area. The air conditioning works really well and kept the room cool. The bathroom contains a huge (and really nice) shower, but no bathtub. The bed and linens were very comfortable. The balcony sitting area contains two comfortable wooden chairs and, as stated above, also has a ceiling fan. We really enjoyed sitting up on our balcony, and the fan kept the mosquitoes at bay.

Breakfast is served in the common area starting at 7:00 each morning. The standard fare is fruit with yogurt and granola with assorted breads. You can also order chilaques and other breakfast dishes, but we stuck with fruit and yogurt each morning.

The hotel has a bar in one of the rooms off of the main entry way. Service starts at 3:00 if I remember correctly. The bar has a good selection of wine, beer and liquor.

The walk to the main square is not bad at all, maybe 10 minutes. Also, the hotel is extremely close (maybe two blocks) to Paseo de Montejo. We really enjoyed strolling down Montejo and people watching.

There are multiple good restaurants within an easy walk (try Oliva, which is right down the street). There are also some fun places to grab a snack or a drink on Montejo.

We used the hotel's sister company, Merida Tours, to take a city-tour of Merida and to take a tour to Chichen-Itza. Edwin was our guide for both. Both outings were very informative and well done. Edwin is a wealth of information, and we really enjoyed the tours.

All in all, we had a great time during our stay in Merida. I cannot speak highly enough of Casa Lecanda.
