Similar to the reviewer on Jan 13, 2009, my stay at Maria de la Luz didn't exactly make my trip better. I had just stayed in Merida for nearly half the price and the room was clean with sparkling white sheets, so imagine my shock when I get to Valladolid and the hotel was nearly twice the cost and dingy....

We got into Valladolid at high noon. It was dusty, hot, and intense. Maria de la Luz is right in the center of things with a busy restaurant and front desk. We were quoted a higher rate than we had reserved, but the new rate included breakfast which was worth it if you wanted a big breakfast. I asked how... More

This was a clean, comfortable hotel at a moderate price. We stayed for 2 nights in early December and used Valladolid as a base to see Mayan ruins and cenotes. We booked by email through the hotel's website. We had to cancel our first night due to a flight delay, and had no problems with the reservation or charges for... More

My wife and I stayed at Maria de la Luz only for one night and we both truly liked it. The rooms are spacious, clean and have all amenities you may be looking for in a moderately priced place. Location – can’t beat it – it is right in the center. That is great, right? Well, not when there is... More

Based on my previous experiences witth family run Mexican hotels, I was very pleased with Maria de la Luz. My wife and I stayed 3 nights at this hotel in December.

The Luz was recommended to me for its proximity to bus and taxi collectivo access, and is right on the main square and tourist area. It's a very laid back spot, and some of the staff speak English well enough to get by. The room I had on the second floor, looking out onto the large pool, was fairly standard,... More

Four of us spent one night at Maria de la luz while touring ruins in the Valladolid area. This is a lovely hotel and it was perfect for our needs. The hotel is located in the middle of town, which is nicely placed for a quick walking tour of the area. To the right as you step out of the... More

During a recent stay at this hotel we were blessed with an opportunity to experience hospitality unlike what is normally encountered in Western culture. On the second evening here the sky opened up with a torrential downpour of biblical proportions. Hunkering down and waiting for locust seemed like the only option as we were quite literally trapped. The roads were... More

We loved Maria de la Luz. It was right on the square, and the restaurant is open and faces the street. The hotel has a great, open feel, and is organized around a pool. There are plenty of places to sit and hang out, so bring along cards or a backgammon board for some quiet time on one of the... More
