This hotel/hostel is new, having been built in 2012. It is at the end of the chicken bus ride to Merida, and we were alerted to it because of a very persistent, but very personable young man on the bus who highly praised its features. Turns out his extended family owns the place. The dining area is beautifully designed and the kitchen prepares some very good choices. The bar offers Flor de Cana and we spent one evening there with fellow travelers and another talking to the barman (relative) who showed us photos of the hotel under construction. The casitas are very attractive and roomy and there is a place to wash and hang clothes near the hostel area. Rancho Merida is a few hundred feet from the lake, but they offer kayaks and kayak tours, as well a guide who will take you up Volcan Maderas. Clientele were mostly young (younger than us). We found the hotel to be very good value ($25/night for casita), particularly with its helpful and very friendly staff.
