Merida, is not what you expect of a Mexican city. First of all, it is sparkingly clean!
Returning to the US was taking a step backwards aesthetically speaking. We
actually saw one dirty, dented car while we were there. The rest looked as if
they had just come from the carwash. The sidewalks of Merida's main drag are
dotted with large sculptures by artists from the Americas. The Zocalo is
enchanting, their Anthropological Musuem is housed in a multi-storied French
19th century marble mansion. Are you getting the picture?

Lodging is plentiful in Merida, but Los Angeles de Merida, an 19th century
hacienda behind giant portales on a cobblestoned street, is two short blocks
from the neighborhood plaza and within easy walking distance of the Zocalo.

John Truax is the comsummate host of this beautifully restored colonial hacienda
cum Bed and Breakfast. Mexican and Spanish antiques lend a sense of life in
another century, and even the original floor tiles have been meticulously
recreated for the renovation. John's carefully chosen staff provide spotless
quarters, sumptuous meals with the freshest of the area's bounty, and excellent
private tours of points of interest in the surrounding area. There is even a
masseur on premise!

Lounging around the pool after a day's tour and watching the tropical birds
flitting in and out of banana tress and giant hibiscus was about as active as we
wanted to get. The large patio overlooking the kitchen, living room, and pool
area provides a inviting gathering spot for happy hour and meals. The totally
private guest quarters beyond the pool have their own modern baths, bedrooms
with Cuban shutters, and are warmly and colorfully decorated with Mexican
artesanias. The rooms are individually air -conditioned and also have ceiling
fans. You control the amount of togetherness you wish to have with the host and
other guests.

A bonus was the shopping and restaurant tips...beautiful custom-tailored
guayaberas and hand-painted dresses, a weaver who makes his Tree of Life rugs
the old-fashioned way, tacos stand and upscale restaurants, and a financial and
social commitment to helping the community through fundraising for an AIDS
hospice for women and children are just more reasons to enjoy a stay at Los
Angeles de Merida.

My flight leaving Houston was delayed due to bad weather. By the time I arrived at Angeles de Merida, it was past midnight and I was nearly two hours late. As my taxi neared the B&B’s unassuming entrance, I saw the outline of a person waiting in the glow of the doorway. As I quickly discovered, it was John Truax, one of the owners, waiting patiently to greet me. This was the first indication that I had arrived at someplace very special.

John and his partner in business and life, Jose Solis, have created a wonderful B&B in Mexico’s historic city of Merida.

The main house is a restored, two-level 19th century home. The first floor with its tall, wood-beamed ceilings is a common area for the owners and guests, with a foyer, living room, formal dining area and kitchen. The comfortable space is beautifully decorated with antiques and artwork. The second floor has a private space for on-site spa services that include a variety of massages and skin care treatments.

Leaving the house, you enter a large covered terrace where the full morning breakfast is served daily. During my visit, the offers ranged from a tasty omelet to traditional huevos rancheros (muy bueno!) In the evenings, fellow guests and I were treated to chips and homemade salsa along with complimentary wine and beer.

Beyond the terrace is a patio for sunbathing, a small pool and garden. It is also here that the four guest suites; each with private baths (the locally-made soap is outstanding). My second-floor room was spacious, with two double beds and a window that overlooked the central garden. The separation from the main house provides a nice blend of the comforting nature of a traditional B&B as well as the privacy of a small boutique hotel.

The staff was professional, friendly and overly attentive. And the property’s quiet, safe location is easy walking distance from Merida’s many cultural, shopping and dining attractions.

I'm already planning a return visit with friends!

Our stay at Angeles De Merida was one of the most enjoyable and relaxing vacations we have ever had. Our only regret was that we were only there 5 days. The food was great. The location was close enough to the markets and the center of the city but on a wonderful quiet street apart from the hustle and bustle.

Everyone at the Angeles De Merida made you feel that you were the only guests and directed us to wonderful out of the way places to explore. For my husband, daughter, and me this was a great get away because it offered something for each of us-shopping in the markets, trying new foods, visiting beaches, small towns, ruins, museums, house tours etc... all were easily accessible. If one of us wanted to relax, it was wonderful to stay at the bed and breakfast and just enjoy a large glass of tea and a good book in a hammock by the pool.

Angeles De Merida offers a wonderful place to relax and a great vantange point for an enchanting city .

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Angeles de Merida so much that we unwittingly overstayed our original stay by one night because we were so relaxed and absorbed by the gorgeous settings and wonderful service. Its in a great location only a couple of blocks walk from the main squares where you can find music, dancing, handicraft stores and restaurants. Once inside the beautiful courtyard, garden, and rooms it felt like we were in staying in a garden cottage in a tropical rainforest. The breakfast meals are amazing, homemade banana bread to die for!! Throughout our stay, the staff were amazing and did everything from laundry to organizing tours, activities, and transport for us! We are definitely recommending this to all our friends.

Stayed: November 2005
