“Best place yet - huge apartments!”
Reviewed 10 March 2010

Thank you so much for your help and advice while staying here in Merida. Margaret and I really appreciated all the local information a new visitor needs: where to catch the bus to Progreso (no need to go downtown to the bus station!) - which are the good tour guides for the pyramids - ordering taxis etc.

The location? Well, as soon as we got our bearings in beautiful Merida we realised that Santa Ana is the top spot and Paseo Montejo, the next street, is the Champs Elise of Merida. Probably why all the banks are there. Very quiet area and just a short walk downtown to all the busy and exciting plazas with their music, dancing the Cha Cha Cha, and local food.

Tacos at 6 pesos? Refrescos at 9 pesos? That is very good value!

The apartment is big and the kitchen has most of the pots and pans you need. It's fun working out how to cook the local food. Two big beds in each room and huge closets for clothing etc. A small balcony. Good air conditioning.

No sun terrace, but maybe an addition on one of the lower roofs at the back -- an idea for the future?

Thanks once again,

Peter and Margaret Hobday, Cornwall, England, 9 March 2010

There is no way to beat Suites del Sol. The locations is perfect: next to the best, but with plenty of separation to recharge your batteries after a full of fun day. No ifs or buts when it comes to accept children. Plenty of room to entertain family and friends visiting. Everything you could possibly need to use in the kitchen: crucial when travelling with family, especially kids. The right price, fair and well deserved, with all the service and attention that you get. But more than anything: the people: Eleuterio, Mariano. German, Thelmy, and everybody in this hotel are commited to do their best every single day they show up to work. Their smiles, help and understanding are amazing. This was our third stay, and each time it gets better than the last. God bless you, Suites del Sol guys, you rock!!!

Suites del Sol is much more than just an apartment. It is a home away from home. It is clean, large rooms in the 2 bedroom, great location, and above all a wonderful management and staff. Thelmy, Poncho, Herman and Mariano took care of us like family. They were never too busy to have a conversation about your adventures for the day. Even the night watchman, Mariano? waited at the front door after hours to greet you with a " Buenos Noches ".We cannot say enough about the friendliness and hospitality of Suites del Sol. We would definitely return and recommend it to others.Ginny and Bob Mulack Chicago, Illinois usa

For anyone wanting attractive, reasonably priced and well located apartment/condo accommodation in Merida, we would highly recommend the Suites Del Sol, which we have stayed at twice in the past year. Our two bedroom apartments have been very large and airy and well equipped for all our needs during our month long stays. Suites Del Sol is family run, and daughters Thelmy and Vanessa speak English and are extremely helpful arranging taxis and tours. When we didn't have a frying pan, Thelmy who has a wicked sense of humour, bought us a new one immediately.

Suites del Sol is one block off the Paseo de Montejo and located within walking distance of the Santa Ana market and Walmart (about 15 minutes in each direction), and two blocks from the Canton Palace (archaeology museum), which we found very handy not having a car.

Suites Del Sol is certainly excellent value for the money and we will be returning again in December.

  • Liked — Spacious, clean and convenient.
  • Disliked — Lack of padding in sofas -- hard and somewhat dated.

I stayed at Suites del Sol in December of 2006 and March/April 2007 while working in the region. This is an excellent option for business travellers. The apartments are fully furnished, comfortable, with a full kitchen and modern appliances. No need to bring or buy anything besides your food. There is ample parking. Wifi throughout the building. Banks, internet cafes, grocery stores, laundry, etc. all within walking distance. It was easy to arrange for the apartment to get cleaned and bottled water to be delivered to the apartment. A landline telephone is available to each apartment - receiving calls and outgoing local calls are free. And the owners/staff were ready and willing to answer any questions. You have instant friends in a new city. The bathrooms could use a makeover, but they work just fine. If you are looking to vacation in Merida, and love the comforts of a luxury hotel (there is no pool nor breathtaking view), then Suites is probably not for you. However, if you are a business traveller, it has everything you need.

  • Liked — It had everything I needed to be comfortable while doing business.
  • Disliked — The bathrooms

We stayed at Suites del Sol for six weeks starting in January, 2007. It's a clean, comfortable, well kept apartment/hotel within walking distance of major attractions. The mangement of the hotel does an exceptional job of being responsive to their residents, both in solving problems in the building and helping with getting around the area.

  • Liked — The management.
  • Disliked — The noise in the area.

We have stayed a Suites del Sol twice. Last year for several weeks and this year for about two weeks. I don't think that you could find a better staff, more friendly, ready to help and willing to do anything to make your stay pleasant. This is a furnished apartment complex, not a fancy hotel, like the Fiesta America in a previous review. You should expect clean, pleasant living space, enough kitchen to prepare breakfasts, lunches and some dinners, a safe and secure parking place for your car, and a great introduction to a great city in a wondrful part of Mexico. All this at a very reasonable price. If you want the Intercontinental or the Ritz, go somewhere else.
