Wife and I went to Merida looking to relax and do a little sightseeing, and Luz en Yucatan fit the bill perfectly of where we wanted to stay.
Hotel is within a few short blocks of many of the main plazas, churches, museums, restaurants and shops in town; you can walk to just about everything you'd want to see, and there's really no reason to rent a car.
Location made it ideal for walking the town in the morning, going back to the hotel for some pool time during the heat of the day, then going back out again in the evening.
The hotel itself had a charm and personality that you won't find at a "cookie-cutter" hotel chain; each room has a unique layout and many have a little patio and hammock for relaxing. Bed, shower, and bathroom all appeared to be new and of good quality.
Staff was extremely friendly and helpful; at check-in, they provided a guide pamphlet with recommendations for sightseeing, shopping, and eating, as well as key contact information in the city. Staff can also assist in setting up tours and trips within Merida and the surrounding area.
Overall, a well organized, efficient, friendly, one-of-a-kind and laid-back hotel tucked into the middle of a bustling city. We'll definitey be back...
