“Cute little Boutique Hotel”
Reviewed 23 July 2013

Such an expected find! Our original hotel was full and they suggested Eclipse. The room was spotlessly clean and the decor was bright and eclectic! There is a small soaking pool on the ground floor. There is also a small elevator, which is very unsual in small Merida hotels. The breakfast was the bomb!!!! Charming Marcella creates delicious specialties each day. The hotel is located just a few blocks from the main plaza. This hotel understands customer service!

This is a small hotel with a good location in the heart of Merida. Rooms have different theme. The room in which we satayed was ok but had some issues.
The bed its not comfortable, the mattress is thin. There is not very good ventilation but you have A/C. There is a mall safe box which is good. Service is just ok nothing extraordinary. The parking lot is two blocks away. We were going to say for 4 nights but we decided to stay just one. This hotel has a good location and price but we have stayed In better hotels for the same price.

We found Hotel Eclipse after reading the advertorial on it in Yucatan Today's January issue soon after our arrival in Merida. The hotel has an excellent location just round the corner from Parque de la Madre and Hidalgo, is just off Calle 60, and is only a few minutes' walk from the main plaza and other attractions in the centre of Merida.

The hotel is very new, opened in August 2010, and for this reason we were not surprised to find that there were few guests, and also no listing in Trip Advisor. It is in a building in the heart of Merida that was completely renovated, and has all the latest comforts -- powerful hot showers, flat screen TVs, air-con, and all the fixtures and finishes are new.

There are only 14 rooms, and the hotel describes itself in Spanish as a "hotel tematico" -- meaning that every room is unique and decorated to a different theme. We stayed in the African room -- decorated with zebra prints, masks, and a wooden giraffe. Other rooms are named Lava, Warhol, Zen, Aloha, Vegas, etc. This really isn't as tacky as it sounds, and we found the overall look and feel to be trendy and chic. Granted, most visitors to Merida are looking for colonial charm, but after spending a few nights in such a hotel in our price range, we were glad to move to Eclipse for the modern comforts of a brand-new hotel.

There is a small plunge pool which looks very inviting on a hot day. Wifi is available, although we had some difficulty accessing it as they had router problems and the signal in our room was weak (it was fine though in other parts of the hotel closer to the reception area). The hotel is also set up for disabled access, there is an elevator and a ramp from the sidewalk.

Most importantly, we experienced excellent, friendly and personal service. We got to know the staff quite well, and they were always very helpful and shared tips with us on their favorite local places to eat, were very helpful with practical information on where to find certain services, etc.

There is some noise from the traffic on calle 57, which is quite busy, but this is a problem common to all other hotels in the centre of Merida. Our room was set back towards the rear of the building, and we were not bothered by noise at all.

We found the mattress to be rather uncomfortable -- you can feel the springs when you lie on the bed. This was still better, however, than the bed in the other older hotel we stayed at in Merida initially. We checked out a few other rooms at Eclipse and found the mattresses in these other rooms to be more padded. We liked our room for how cool and quiet it was, however, so did not move to another room just for a softer mattress.

Overall, we found Hotel Eclipse to be excellent value for money -- we paid 600 pesos per night for a double, including tax, which is a third off their rack rate of 900 pesos, and probably reflects their low occupancy rate currently. They do not, however, provide breakfast, but that was not a problem at all, as Cafeteria Pop and La Chaya Maya offer great options for breakfast, and are within a block and a half on the same street.
