40's couple from Seattle. Traveled to Yucatan and Central America several times. I rarely post reviews but this place is just unreal. The humorous website suggests an awesome place but it is even better. The property is right in the heart of Merida close to the best shops, food and things to do. Beautiful place, we stayed in the the...

We spent 10 incredible nights at Luz En Yucatan. Each day was an adventure for us and everyone at The Luz helped us along the way. It would be impossible to single out one person because no matter what question or personal issue we had, it was like a family member helping us. From arranging daily drivers/tour guides for trips,...

As a break from hostels while travelling the peninsula we looked for a mid range hotel. This was recommended in the Lonely Planet so we clicked onto their website. They have a 'pay what you feel' system where you pick your price range based on how successful you think you are. I've never seen anything like it before; we felt...

From the outside, it looks like just a little door. Inside is a quaint quiet piece of heaven. Our family of 4 stayed in a room for 3 nights while exploring Merida. It's located in a safe and bustling part of town, but once inside the hotel it was as quiet and tranquil as possible. The facilities were up to...

I really don't often gush in these things, but... I travel for a living, and therefore have stayed in many, many hotels in quite a few countries. Listen: this one is a definite winner. Purportedly an ex convent, La Luz is a charming, boutique-style hotel in the true sense of the word. Where to start? Let's see: the rooms are...

A wonderful location, great staff. They even had a liquor cart for (free) shots of tequila! The pool is lovely and our room, Patron, was big and the kitchen was great. We even had a patio up a level with a hammock and a table for 4. Donard and Esteban were very helpful. We did have some initial problems with...

I would not stay anywhere else in Merida. If you are looking for glitz and glamour, room service and a wild, party atmosphere,this isn't for you. But if you want a true Mexican experience with beautiful decor appropriate to the buildings colonial roots, quiet, spotlessly clean and in Centro, this is perfect. It is small, intimate and has been retrofitted...

I have enjoyed Luz many times over the years and am happy to recommend the management and staff without reservation. They are unfailingly kind and concerned for their guests' comfort and well being. They are patient as well. My questions have been answered, no request has been ignored and I have always felt completely safe whether traveling alone or with...

This place was recommended to us by friends that live in Mexico City. What a wonderful find! Thanks to the owner Tom and crew, we were given inside into the things to do and where to go for food. This is an apart-hotel that does not serve breakfast. However, our room, El Patron had a fully equipped kitchen and full...

Excellent location, easy walking distance of main city sites, secure parking available nearby. Wonderful rooms: spacious, comfortable and well-equipped. Very friendly and helpful staff - our first room had a problem with noisy AC that couldn't be fixed that night so moved us to another room no problem. Relaxed vibe, and the kids enjoyed the pool. Excellent place overall and...
