My husband booked this and I have to stay I was not sure about it. The pictures looked good but I didn't know if it was going to be great or just nice.
What we found was a special, quirky, charming, homey hotel that struck the right balance between comfortable and budget-friendly.
We booked room #5, right outside the pool. Upside: right outside the pool, with your own patio area. Downside: right outside the pool, so if you want some privacy we needed to close the drapes. And no napping mid-day, as even a soft conversation by other guests at the pool would travel into the room. There are several rooms away from the pool so if you're the type to want to siesta, do ask for what works best for you. For me, it was not a problem, I sleep through anything.
The check-in was seamless, and the staff were eager to help. I've never met such friendly hotel staff. A cute touch was the drink cart in the hall: shots of tequila, agave liquor, and several others are on the house. At first I thought it was cheesy, then I got a taste of xtabentun and suddenly it seemed like a great idea to have a free drink cart in the hallway.
The bathroom was huge and luxurious. Great water pressure and lots of space to spread out our stuff. Bed was comfy and the hotel overall was spotless. When we wanted to rest from being in busy Merida, we loved coming back to our cool room by the pool.
