Luz En Yucatan
Ranked #2 of 106 Hotels in Merida
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 4, 2014

This is the best hotel we have stayed during our three weeks in Mexico. They gave us an upgrade for our honeymoon to one of the big kingsize-bedrooms with rooftopterras and open kitchen. Wow! We were supposed to stay only one night, but had to take a bus the day later. No problem for Luz en Yucatan, we could stay another night. Very personal, kind, professional and considerate staff, they really walk the extra mile for you. Tequilla and water for free, great location in the old part of Merida. Beautiful building and great rooms. With the checkin you receive an overview of their recommendations to eat, drink, shop, what to see etcetera. Luz en Yucatan is a hotel worth visiting Merida for!

Room Tip: All rooms are beautiful, but one with your own terras is worth the extra money!

We stayed for 5 days during a recent house-hunting trip to Merida, and love Luz en Yucatan. The rooms are spacious, quiet and have very comfortable beds. The shower pressure is good, even on the top floor. The decor is lovely and colorful. The pool is terrific for cooling off. We were given a complementary upgrade to a larger room, with a private outdoor kitchen and patio, but we peaked in a number of the other rooms and all looked very nice. There is no restaurant, but there are a large number of good options within one block -- we recommend the Club restaurant right across the street for breakfast and Chaya Maya and Apoala for lunch/dinner. Free wifi. The staff and the owner, Tom, could not be more friendly or helpful. The location is simply perfect....right across the street from Santa Lucia square and 3 blocks from the Zocalo. And the free beers and drinks are a nice way to end the day. And the value -- incredible! Try it, you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: When we return, we will probably ask for one of the poolside casita rooms. Very quiet (although we...

We stayed here with family last week and the hotel was perfect and value for money.the rooms are huge and have all amenities. The 2 complimentary beers are perfect for enjoying in the pool after a long day of sightseeing. Loved sharing a drink with other travellers at the end of each day. The restaurant across the road is great for breakfast also. Cannot recommend highly enough

This is such a cool place. Not in on the Zocalo but on a smaller, cosier square so that is a great plus. The place itself is gorgeous, the rooms spacious and clean and, luckily, with an AC.
Nice guy at the reception, free booze in the lobby and a nice pool. I was sad not to spend a bit more time there. Would certainly go there again!

Had a fantastic stay at Luz. It is located very centrally so it is easy to navigate your way around Merida. The city tour bus goes from across the main road and the big squares are a short walk (less than 10mins) away. The staff and owners were super friendly and incredibly helpful. I was travelling alone and their advice and care made the experience very comfortable and relaxed. The free wifi was also incredibly useful. The decor and facilities are beautifully done - feels like a small boutique hotel without the extravagant cost. Would highly recommend to those travelling on their own or to couples. This peaceful little haven is great for both.

My husband and I stayed at the Luz May 3rd though the 9th then stayed at Casa de Luz the 15th, 16th, and 17th. Tom and his staff are all wonderful and so helpful. We had 2 cold beers in our fridge upon arrival and the room was spotless. The location is excellent, right near Santa Lucia park, where they have live music and Mexican dancers on Thursday nights. You can walk everywhere in Centro. You feel like this is home and you are with your freinds!
This will be out go-to place in Merida and I already have another trip planned for Sept. and already booked at Casa De Luz. Highly Recommend.

Wonderful hotel with beautiful rooms, a cute pool and realy friendly staff.
We stayed in ten different hotels on our way from Mexico City to cancun in beautiful magic towns along the way.
The one in Merida was particularly nice with breakfast across the street.

Rooms with little terraces,private gardens, hammocks and big bathrooms.

One of the owners Tom, gave us directions to a "secret" cenote with his home made map in the middle of the jungle and we had a great time exploring it.

Just outside the busy part of the downtown and walking distance from the hot spots. A short drive from archeological sightseeing and the gulf of Mexico.

Don't miss this very reasonably priced gem.
