The hotel was in a great location, being close to the main square, as well as many nice restaurants. The room was spacious with a very large and comfortable bed, overlooking the pool. The air conditioning worked well, and the wifi was relatively fast. The room also had a television and a safe. The only negative was the bathroom. It...

We loved the pool! We showed up very late and tired from our flight and they were so helpful and welcoming to us! The pool was very nice and they provide towels which was helpful as we forgot to pack any. The room was big and the bed was comfy. They recommended a small place around the corner to have...

This is a nice place to stay. Rooms are nicely appointed and with balconies to the pool. The dining and foyer are delightful and worth taking the time for a relax. Breakfast is so-so, but the team are friendly and helpful. Wifi is a little dodgy.

I have absolutely no idea what happened with my luggage in this hotel! I identified it in the lobby, watched someone write my room number on the suitcases and then boarded the elevator with the bell boy. He took the first girl's luggage to her room and then... poof! I finally went down to the lobby to see a couple...

This hotel relies heavily on tour groups for whom it's probably an OK be night stop maybe 2. Superficially it looks very good - nice building and quite big rooms. However it's all a little lack lustre, the rooms are ok - but then most hotel rooms are OK. Ours had large clusters of dust just hanging on a couple...

I've stayed in lots of budget hotels, and this one is just a tiny bit more money than most of the budget hotels in hisotric Merida, but what you get is soooooo worth the few extra dollars! The men at the desk are so helpful and friendly, and after traveling for a month in Yucatan with my three kids alone,...

We booked into this hotel for Christmas as we wanted a nice and colonial style hotel to spend the holidays in. The website pictures convinced us to try it out and luckily we were not disappointed.
