My husband and I have been back from our trip to Merida for almost a week, and are still basking in the warm glow of Luz en Yucatan--a true home away from home, and just as comfortable and hospitable as all of the reviews here have stated. With reviews this good, one might assume they had been written by the owners--not true, as this place really lives up to its reputation. We stayed in the top-floor "penthouse," which is very roomy and includes a semi-outdoor kitchen equipped with a gas stove-top, sink, small fridge and everything you need to make breakfast and other basic meals. The unit has a king-sized bed with firm mattress; a bath with large, glass-tiled shower; separate sink and counter space; and chairs for lounging. Best of all: a good-sized terrace with table, chairs, and one of Merida's signature hammocks (big enough for two). The room also has beautiful stained-glass windows: we loved the cobalt-blue glow of light filtering into the space as dawn rose over the city.

We didn't get a chance to enjoy the pool (too cool), but it's in a lovely setting in a courtyard surrounded by terraces and potted plants. The hotel is in a great location near St. Lucia Square, and only blocks away from the main plaza, the bustling heart of this charming, friendly city. Co-owner Tom was helpful and attentive, recommending restaurants and vendors and booking us a day-trip to the ruins of Uxmal, one of several "musts" for anyone visiting here--just like Luz en Yucatan itself.

Spent nine nights at Luz en Yucatan, stayed in three of their 15 rooms and cannot say enough positive things about the hotel, the staff, the other guests, the location etc. etc.

Great hotel, owner, staff, and the complimentary shooter bar was nice touch. Perfect location within short walking distance of the zocalo. WiFi worked perfectly. $55 a night + $5/ day parking in the lot across the street.

We spent two weeks touring the Yucatan with our kids aged 12, 9 and 3. Our 4 nights in Merida at Luz were perfect. Tom and Don are generous, caring hosts who put their travel experience and savvy to good use at Luz in Yucatan. They understand what travelers want: a comfortable, clean and welcoming room, access to beautiful shared living spaces, including a communal kitchen, and a lovely pool to cool off during the afternoon heat.....and all of this at reasonable rates! We've travelled extensively, and this is the first place that really meets all of our needs and expectations. We really felt at home in Luz and will certainly be back soon!

Nous avons adoré notre séjour à Luz en Yucatan. Nos hôtes, Tom et Don, comprennent vraiment ce que recherchent les voyageurs: une chambre propre et comfortable, de jolis espaces publics, une cuisine commune et une jolie piscine pour se rafraîchir en après-midi...tout cela à des prix abordables! Nous avons beaucoup voyagé et pouvons affirmer que cet endroit était vraiment à la hauteur de nos attentes. Nous étions chez nous à Luz et nous serons certainement de retour bientôt!
