This review is overdue and very enthusiastic! I cannot tell you how much we loved this hotel! So very unique (at least to us). After a day of driving from Playa del Carmen (on the jungle road - oops wrong turn) and they spending the best part of the day in February at the ruins of Uxmal, we headed for Luz en Yucatan for an overnight stay. It did take some work to find it as we speak no Spanish and even though we had the address and directions, Merida is a difficult city to traverse thru when you aren't sure where you are going! All of that being said, I have to say that each and everyone of the 13 people we stopped to ask where is was were very friendly and tried very hard to be helpful but this is a little known gem hidden in the shadow of the church!! Finally we arrived and were blown away - this was just the neatest hotel ever!! Each "room" is actually a suite around the pool/courtyard! Extremely friendly folk tending to the travelers and they seemed more like friends than employees. Enrico (I think) recommended a fabulous restaurant (Chaya Mayan) and it was so very cheap and tasty!! The beds, the cold beer, the tequila cart/bar and just the very ambiance of this hotel just screams colonial Mexico! We had the opportunity to meet Tom when we were checking out and he is just so terrific! My only complaint is that we couldn't stay longer but we will next year as this is just such a little piece of paradise! Merida itself just impressed me to no end!
