El Meson del Marques

Reviewed January 31, 2014

This hotel right on the Plaza has a restaurant in a beautiful courtyard and nice public areas with a bar and pool a garden and secure parking area. The staff was friendly and helpful. I had a standard room in the new section which had 5 floors and an elevator. My room opened onto a veranda with a view of the cathedral. This is a very nice spot and I would be happyto stay there again if I'm in the area. Valladolid was about a 2 hour drive from the airport and is a good base for exploring the Yucatan.

Really value for money place, staff is great and nice breakfast. The hotels restaurant is located in a nice garden atmosphere and its really great waking up to it. The pool looked reallt inviting, too bad we had cold weather. The room was tidy and the shower also nice. Not sparkling new but all goes with the places vintage vibe. We liked our one night stay.

We booked a one bedroom suite with a king bed for a slightly higher price than a regular room but boy it was fantastic value for money. Nice modern amenities, very helpful and friendly staff, comfortable beds... I could go on. The bathroom was so huge we could have put a bed in it.
The restaurant is also excellent, probably best in town. And above all, can't beat the location.

Room Tip: Don't book through websites. The taxes will kill you. Call them directly.

We stayed at El Meson for only one night but really enjoyed our stay. The hotel is central to everything and the rooms are very, very nice. If you have the opportunity to try their breakfast, I highly recommend it. Hotel service and hospitality were also great. We stayed in a room with a balcony overseeing the courtyard and pool. Rooms are very big and offer all basic amenities.

Room Tip: Rooms with the balconies are nice!

Our family of 4 stayed here for 2 nights in December and found it to be just what we were looking for. Our room was large, clean and comfortable (we are not picky when it comes to mattresses). It is ideally located across from the main plaza and within walking distance to the bus station, cenote, parks, plazas, restaurants etc...

We found the hotel and restaurant staff to be very friendly and helpful. We ate breakfast at the hotel each morning and it was very relaxing in a beautiful courtyard. The view from the small pool up to the rooms at night was enchanting. Though the pool was small and chilly, it was a welcome respite from the midday heat.

We would definitely visit the town of Valladolid again and would stay at El Meson del Marques.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 4th floor overlooking the pool and loved our room.

Our room was tiny but super cute. We had a good view and the location is fantastic. The bed however was super hard and the pillows were hard as well. We didn't sleep so good, which is a bummer because the service, decor and location are great.

The internet was really bad too, I understand because its free it is not always good, but when I am traveling I use the internet to figure stuff out, like where is the bus station located...the front desk agents were helpful though so it worked out.

Hello,

Thank you for your comments and suggestions. We have received several criticisms about our mattresses and pillows, reason why we are just waiting for new mattresses and pillows to begin immediate change and all our guests can rest comfortably. Thanks for the suggestion.

The internet is free, unfortunately not all the hotel has a good sign because tits a colonial building and the walls are thick, it is virtually impossible to reach the Internet in all areas, but definitely the common areas, the restaurant and most rooms have good internet reception.

Thanks for your comments about the receptionists, I will send a copy of your comments to the front desk department.

I hope you have had a great vacation in Mexico.

Best Regards,

- Rodrigo Escalante

Most of the rooms at El Meson are not in the original buildings at all. They're in a motel-ish couple of buildings in the courtyard. I could definitely tell on the website but have to say that it is still misleading. That said, besides the cheap furniture, bad pillows and motel room-ish smell, our "superior room" was clean, relatively inexpensive and had a great shower in a small but nice bathroom. We had no view. The hotel itself does not really provide a sanctuary from the noise and exhaust and dust of this rough-around-the-edges town. The courtyard restaurant, though it serves good food, is much in need of a decor overhaul. The pool area is adjacent to the parking lot and is seriously lacking in charm. Perhaps, if Valladolid ever becomes Yucatan's version of San Miguel De Allende as the NY Times, USA Today and the SF Chronical suggests, El Meson will make the upgrades necessary to warrant a real four star rating. Right now it falls far short. But so does the town, which is no Oaxaca.
*** Finally... besides the above, I left my ipad in my room by accident and when we called we were hung up on twice.

Room Tip: Ask for a suite in the main historic building.
