“Wonderful!!”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

My husband and I are so happy that we stayed at Villa Tievoli. The house is lovely and our room was very pretty, thoughtfully furnished, and comfortable. It is clear that the owners, Patrick and Wendell, have made the comfort and happiness of their guests their top priority. Patrick and Wendell were extremely welcoming, eager to give us ideas for getting to know the city and the surrounding areas, and open to sharing their experiences in Merida. We really enjoyed our stay and we are very happy that we chose the Villa Tievoli over the better-known chain hotels in the city.

We stayed here for nearly a month and we could not be happier. The room was always clean, the breakfast delicious and the proprietors (Patric and Wendel) extremely helpful and kind! Highly recomended, it was like home away from home.

I only had wonderfull experiences at The Villa Tievoli, downtown Mérida, Yucatan. First of all, Patrick & Wendell are such nice hosts, making your stay comfortable, safe and relaxing. They are always available for you, preparing a delicious breakfast everyday (with fresh fruits, bread, juice, coffee, and much more), guiding you in the city telling you what you can see and visit all around (ruins, museums, restaurants, bars, etc.) or just spending time with you, always respecting your privacy. This B&B has very comfortable, clean and large rooms, with king size beds, private bathrooms and hot water. The nice garden with plants and fountains, the spacious dinning room, the living room with many books and the big swimming pool are just making this place very complete. Also, The Villa Tievoli is so well located, you can just walk safely all around the hotel, to go anywhere you want (tiendas, bars, restaurants, parks, catch a bus, boutiques, etc.). I strongly recommend The Villa Tievoli to anybody who wants to enjoy a short or long stay in Yucatan, a place where you never finish visiting (cenotes, ruins, beaches, cities, caves, flamingos, museums, etc.).

Villa Tievoli is a world into itself in the heart of Merida. The beautiful white facade blends into the traditional colonial architecture of the neighborhood while creating a gorgeous oasis within. The pool, courtyard and sitting room are immaculate, tasteful and personal. Our room was large and comfortable, decorated simply but elegantly, with a well-appointed private bath.

Patrick and Wendell are consummate hosts who love spending time with their guests. They provided informal but effective concierge services, answering all our questions about Merida and the surrounding country and even polling their large circle of local friends for additional information.

The breakfast was sensational, different every day, and served on a different set of china. There are 28 sets, so you could stay a month and never see the same set twice. Our hosts' many years in the hospitality industry is evident in every aspect of Villa Tievoli, but Patrick's awesome breakfast service is simply astonishing.

I haven't written a review in a long time, but our amazing experience at Villa Tievoli compelled me!

One can only describe the beauty of this lovely bed and breakfast as magical. It's obvious that great effort and a love of detail has gone into the decor, room design and comfort. It's an oasis really after a day of visiting thronged Maya Temples, Merida's downtown busyness and various museums. Both Patrick and Wendell are the consummate hosts ... happy, polite, friendly, engaging and yet at the same time respectful of personal privacy. If you tired of sterile hotel environments and wish a respite into charm and simple elegance, where one can truly relax and refresh, I highly recommend The Villa Tievoli. I am a repeat visitor because I appreciate the care, comfort as well as location. It's quiet.

Room Tip: Book early. They are busy !

This was my third trip to Merida and staying at the Villa Tievoli made this trip extra special. The hosts, Patrick and Wendell become family after just a short time, making you feel extra welcome to their lovely home. Spacious rooms, an outside pool and patio, and so close to downtown this is the perfect place to stay for business or pleasure.
Patrick's breakfast is delightful and a wonderful way to start your day before heading to the pyramids or cenotes or just a stroll downtown.
I highly recommend that anyone heading to Merida spend all your nights here and be welcomed like family.

I've been home all of 2 days and one of the things I miss most about my trip to Merida is Patrick and Wendel's company.
These two are just lovely and make the villa a home from home with a touch of flair.
From the gorgeous homemade breakfast served on Wedgewood or Royal Dalton china (Patrick has a collection he is very proud of) to the time you turn in at night you are spoiled and attended to perfectly.
The rooms are spacious, airconditioned, clean and quiet. There is a pool and sitting area in the garden where I spent much of my time relaxing.
The guys are happy to assist with booking tours and advising on local interest, even going so far as to translate at the local tour office for me (my spanish is somewhat lacking)
They even send me home with a wee pouch of Rose Tea as I had commented that I enjoyed it!
I cannot recommend this place highly enough.
