The Gran Real in Merida is carved out of one of those mansions that flourished in Merida at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries. The lobby, around a courtyard is absolutely gorgeous, fit with fluffy sofas and chairs that make staying away from the brutal summer sun a joy. Rooms, bathrooms and breakfasts deserve the highest rating. Not so the staff. They were mostly helpful and amicable, but they were not well-trained or managed for such a hotel. Cleaning of the rooms was delayed sometimes until past 6 p.m. at night, which made getting back to your room a problem. They would then hurry and not finish the job properly. At the bar by the pool, which served great margaritas and mojitos, we asked a busboy to bring us a chair and argued with me as to why he couldn't. With a little touch from a manager, this hotel could rate as Top of the Line.
