We flew into Merida late Saturday night, and we were greeted by Tom the owner, cold beer and a welcome shot of tequila...ole!
The small hotel has a perfect location, absolutely walking distance from everything you want to do in the centro. Do not miss Domingo en Merida, a fabulous celebration of food, music, dancing and handcrafts in the Plaza Principal, which is located a few short blocks from Luz.
We enjoyed the hammocks in the room (inspired and a great place to nap if you don't want to mess up the bed), and the pool was great. We really enjoyed the different mix of guests staying here, people from all over the world, which really makes a hotel a "home" when you connect with a traveling "family". We ended up joining a few other guests for excursions and meals.....it was great.
Luz is very friendly, funky, comfortable, a great place to stay. They provide a sheet of "Luz-ful suggestions" on check-in which was invaluable. They arranged side trips to Mayan ruins, suggested activities, and restaurants. It was like having your own little apartment in the city. The worst thing was having to check out, we did not want to leave. We will be back.
