“Ideal for our family reunion”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

Our family took over 5 very spacious, quiet and clean rooms( each with a supplementary hammock!) on the second floor which all lead out onto a lovely verandah with tables and chairs, flowering plants and even the sound of the fountain down below..a perfect place to sit and read, have a cup of coffee, or better yet meet up for a beer before or after the daily sightseeing.Tom and Donard, the owners, could not have been more helpful, whether setting up mini van rentals for day tours, to letting us use their full kitchen to prepare and serve our new years eve feast . After returning to the hotel after dinner every night, we enjoyed an after dinner drink at their complimentary bar cart in the patio downstairs. All in all we had a fabulous time including around the pool, and would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: All our rooms on the second floor were quiet and spacious with good A/C

My husband and I hate to tell anyone about this place because we want it to always be available for us. But honestly we haven't STOPPED talking about the Luz. The staff/owners are first rate!!! VERY clean at all times. We had the large poolside and couldn't ask for more. Pool was always clean and inviting. The liquor cart (gratis) was a welcomed attraction after a long day of touring, etc. Fresh bottled water supplied gratis again. Neighborhood is safe and close to anything you need. If you want to steep yourself into another era the Luz is for you. Open your mind and hearts to a new and different way of living (if ony for a little while). See the world in a brand new way. Experience the Luz!!! Thanks to EVERYONE for a wonderful experience!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This place is heaven...they have thought of details to make you feel special. The staff and owners are super friendly, and will go the extra miles in the name of hospitality.
They have put together a very useful 2 pager info about all you need when in Merida. The Kitchen, common areas, pool and liquor corner are all fantastic.
This place seems to be based on lots of trust in human relationships and that makes is a de-Light-ful.
Thank you guys for making me and my Mom feel so well and taken care of.

My wife and I stayed here for a week. Originally we had a small room in the back because it was all that was available when we booked. However another room became available, and we moved to it. Both rooms were comfortable and clean. The staff was helpful throughout our stay. The location of the hotel is perfect for enjoying the historic downtown. There are kitchens in some of the rooms and a full communal kitchen is also available to use. Tom, the owner, is around and is very helpful. The staff is friendly and helpful. We have stayed in Merida a number of times at different hotels with varying experiences -- usually very positive. But, the Luz En Yucatan has been the best of all. We ate several meals across the street at the Cafe Club and rented a car from the parking area across the street as well. Both were good experiences as well.

Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful and made you feel welcome. The room had "character" four small rooms through doors and an outside walk. The hotel is well located for seeing Merida and other sites. One minor complent was that although everyone tried to give current info on buses and local transportation, it was rarely right.

Room Tip: Rooms are not symmetrially arranged. It is old nuns convert that was converted.

In this hotel - colonial house - everything is great - clean rooms in mexican style, air condition, refrigerator with welcome drinks ( it’s especially nice on a hot day ), coffee maker, drinking water cooler, WiFi. In our room there was a further terrace with a hammock.
The hotel's location is very convenient - just three blocks away from the zocalo. where the oldest cathedral on the continent is situated. In close proximity to the hotel are universities. shops, Indian market , cafes and restaurants. At the plaza Santa Lucia, which located at a stone's throw, often hosts live music show.
If you want to visit Chichen Itza, you can get to the bus station on foot in 20 minutes ( bus ticket can be purchased immediately before departure )
Don't miss the Universidad de Yucatan (in 1 block from the hotel) because of its style and folk festivals.
Two blocks from Luz is very popular Yucatecan restaraunt - Chaya Maya (one block to the zocalo, then turn the right). But the best Sopa de lima we tasted in a small restaraunt El Trapiche at the same street.
There are so many fine reviews, that I can’t add anything else:)))

If you stay here - you will not regret !

and much more!

Most excellent location, comfort, ammenities, and service! Feels as comfortable as being at home. I highly recommend without hesitation. The owner stops for coffee daily interacting with guests. He obviouly makes it his business to know what is going on from front desk with the guests. He stopped at the curb as we boarded the tour bus to offer good information regarding our visit to Uxmal and Kabah. The entire staff was equally personable.
