This was our first visit to Merida and I searched quite awhile to find budget accommodations with good reviews that was in a historic building. So imagine our shock to arrive and be told we were being sent to another hotel because the A/C was not working. This was during the height of "Carnaval" and we saw other patrons come in off the street as we were being ushered to the other hotel (which happened to be a time share) and assumed they overbooked due to the festival and we would never set foot inside. Alas, we were very pleasantly surprised to go back the next day and be told our room was, indeed, ready for us. Whew!! We had a room with 2 double beds (more large singles than true doubles) on the 2nd floor overlooking the lovely pool.
Location, location, location! So close to the square and other areas.
Peace and quiet
Good food. We only had breakfast there, but it was really good (except for the coffee which was really weak)
Nice, helpful staff.
Cool, refreshing pool WITH towels waiting for you on the chaises.
Beds were not super comfy for sleeping
Pros far outweighed any negatives and our first experience in Merida was great!! We will definitely come back when it is NOT Carnaval to experience the true Merida without all the chaos of daily parades and bleachers and barriers set up everywhere
BEST TIP: EVERY TUESDAY AT THE ENGLISH LIBRARY THEY HAVE HOUSE TOURS. THERE IS NO CHARGE AND YOU GET TO SEE 4 VARIOUS HOMES IN MERIDA WHICH IS SUCH A BONUS!!!
