Merida was the last stop on our yucatan tour. Our reservations were for the exact same time as hurricane dean was supposed to hit. Tom was super helpful as we emailed him from tulum to make sure all was still ok - after emailing with him my friend and i decided there was no place we'd rather be during a huricane than at luz en yucatan!
Tom had great suggestions for EVERYTHING- food, activities (there was music and entertainment in the street near the restaurants), excursions, what massage to get (get the ayurvedic 2 hour massage - it was amazing!). He gave us a pre-printed list of restaurants - I highly recommend eating the tacos where the pope ate -get all 5 different kinds (they're small). Cafeteria Pop was good too.
There is internet at the hotel if you have your own computer or internet cafes within a few blocks if you don't have your computer with you. Its easy to walk everywhere from Luz en Yucatan.
The room was fantastic, we had the middle type - 2 full beds, hammock, full kitchen, tv, wardrobe. it was very clean and mostly quiet. There were families staying in a few of the rooms, and the kids could be noisy. There is a big living space downstairs and a pool in the back.
If I were to ever go back to Merida - I'd stay at the luz en yucatan in a heartbeat! (Tom said he is going to be renovating though, so I'm sure the place will be different than the pictures, but I'll attach them anyway)
