My husband and I just spent five days here! What a wonderful time we had relaxing by the pool. We started each day having breakfast by the pool which included sweet rolls/donuts, an enormous bowl of fresh fruit, granola, yogurt, unusual/ethnic entre with eggs and coffee/tea/ Yummy!! Maybe wandered into the plaza area, came back and spent the afternoon by the pool reading and swimming and had wine in the evenings. It was hard to leave the garden to have dinner. Everything was enchanting. We had the room with two beds which was ample size and beautifully decorated with items David had collected over the years. This is definitely not the typical B&B in which we have stayed. Came back with a few ideas on how to add more personal touches to our home. David was the continual gracious host...full of information and even drove us to the restaurants. Lucas, his helper, was also very friendly and speaks several languages. One of the most wonderful things about our time here was that we lucked out and were the only guests. Another guest was schedule but cancelled at the last minute due to illness. Definitely a place to come back to again and again. The inside of David's house is unbelievable! You'll want to spend time seeing everything and taking a million photos. David has even painted some of the art work. If you miss staying here, it is definitely your loss. It's a one in a million place! Outstanding value!!!!!

After staying at David's delightful bed&breakfast with my husband several times over the past years, I think it is finally time to write a review, although not wanting to repeat what everyone has already written will be almost impossible.
He is indeed very generous and will go out of his way to provide you with anything within his power, including pastries and snacks for the ungodly early flight out of Merida on United.
He is witty and dare I say charming and lives with the most adorable babies(dogs and cats) you will meet in a long time. He must be so tired of hearing the same old joke about Isabella being kidnapped, although every one of us means it. His rooms are always clean and the towels are a-plenty. He is never too busy to chat or help with advice or dinner suggestions. His assistant is a sweet and handsome man from Argentina, who is married to a local girl and has made Yucatan his new home. And his cooking's not too shabby either! The pool is deliciously refreshing in the summer months, which makes it hard to leave, but the true beauty of this place is if you don't feel like leaving for the day, you don't have to, because you are always welcome in David's little slice of paradise.
And that is what I think of David and Los Arcos!

La Casa de los Arcos is truly a magical place. You would never guess that such a beautiful oasis existed beyond the walls from the street. The rooms are gorgeous and both they and the house are filled with beautiful art. If you really wanted to relax, you could spend the day by the pool and just enjoy the wind through the palms.

Los Arcos is located in Centro north of the Plaza Grande within easy walking distance of many good restaurants. A little further in the opposite direction is the Paseo de Montejo with its mansions.

David is a very gracious and helpful host, and Lucas prepared wonderful breakfasts all three days we were there. One of our party fell ill and David made every effort to ensure his speedy recovery.

The time we spent there was well worth it and we'll be back.

I have now stayed at Los Arcos twice, and will keep coming back for long weekends! It's a perfect measure of relaxation and comfort. The location is far enough from the main square that the neighborhood is quiet and not overrun with tourists, but close enough that a short-walk gets you to restaurants and attractions. Thanks to David's hospitality, it already feels like a 'second home'.

What more can a reviewer say about Los Arcos and it’s owner/operator David Reed. The location is ideal for exploring the Centro, the décor in the main house is a combo of art gallery and museum. And I should mention David’s generosity: upgrading us to the spacious quarters in the upstairs of the main dwelling at no extra cost since he had overbooked the first night of our stay. And dare I say, he even shared with us a little of his tequila prior to a dinner outing. Be sure to get one David’s hand drawn maps of the neighborhood highlighting restaurants and plazas (this is not a Xerox copy, he seems to relish hand drawing a guest map, apropos for the artist that he is.) His able assistant Lucas was a delight and a great breakfast cook.
