“Le mas mejor!! The Best!”
Reviewed September 15, 2006

We first dined at Villa Maria in November, 2005. After seeing the hotel, we booked there for the next trip to Merida for a week in May, 2006.
Villa Maria is a spectacular alternative to run of the mill hotels. It is truly a cultural experience. Architecturally magnificent, with beautifully appointed rooms, and conveniently located a short walk to the main square, Villa Maria is superior to almost every hotel I have stayed at in the U.S., Italy, and the UK over 25 years of travel.
Chef Johann is a master, with a diverse and wonderful menu.
Host Octavio is congenial, available and most helpful. Staff members Eduardo, Rodrigo, Pablo, and Jose provided excellent, friendly service at the bar or in the restaurant.
Mil gracias!! Nosotros volverimos!!!

Such pleasant memories, months after our stay.

Octavio is the generous, sophisticated owner and a the perfect host -- there, but not in any way obtrusive.

We had the rooms over the pool which were probably quieter than the ones around the restaurant.

Lovely restaurant, staff, artwork, architectural details. Moorish courtyard.

Four blocks to town. Streets are narrow, crowded. Best time is evening when the whole town is dancing in the streets -- seems to happen every night --

Villa Merida was a first class vacation.
As a couple that has stayed many places in Mexico, Hawaii, and Europe, we thoroughly enjoyed the gracious and personalized living in the 7 room palacial hacienda.
Incredible service.
It has a spectacular (but private) garden with a pool, and the room was a small gem with 20' beamed ceilings.
The food was specially prepared for us by order and healthy; as elegant as any Boston restraunt.
Chocolate and flower petals on the bed at night.
Tour guides to the amazing underground water caves (meteor formed), and gym and internet access were some great amenities also.
We looked at almost all the other quality places in Merida and this far exceeded the others.
Elegant, tranquil, and romantic vacation.

I have visited the Villa Maria twice in the past year. The rooms are individually unique and beautifully designed with all the luxuries. The courtyard restaurant and Dining room serve food that is highly gourmet and delicious! The owners are gracious and friendly and the service is superb! The location in Centro near the Zocalo is central to all major interests. I just feel like I am special when I am there!
