Reviewed 1 July 2013

If you are looking for a unique boutique hotel you cannot miss with this conveniently locate gem. It is near the main square but far enough away from the noise and bustle. The owners are very responsive and the style allows for conversations with other guests. The price is right and the charm is magical. Restaurants are across the street or around the corner.

This place is excellent. The people in the front desk are very kind and they do not overwhelm you will a huge set of instructions prior or after your arrival.

I came to Merida to arrange my american visa, this place was very convenient for me since it only takes about 10 minutes to walk to the consulate. I decided to extend my stay in this hotel because it is just beautiful and relaxing. I found this place thanks to tripadvisor, therefore I think they deserve to have another positive review.

We were only going to be in Merida for a 2.5 days (2 nights) and we wanted to stay right in the Old Town Square (Zocalo). Luz en Yucatan Hotel is right next to a very nice square and walking distance from all the historic sites in Merida!

We booked a Poolside room... and it was nicer than expected! Big bathroom, fully equipped kitchen, 2 queens + 1 single bed, and a nice view to the garden with the pool! The hotel staff was friendly and eager to please. The rooms have good WiFi internet, this was nice to keep in touch with the familiy!

This is a truly Yucatan experience!

Thank's to all the staff! Hope to see you soon again!

I was amazed with the reception we received from Donard (owner operator). He was very welcoming, friendly, and thanked us for paying for our stay up front (I guess this does not happen very often)! The pool area is where all the guests would meet and mingle in the late afternoon and evenings. Some folks would run out of their own booze, and dash for the cart of "samplers" Donard kept in the hallway, it was great. The rooms were comfortable, clean and had refrigerators, coffee makers, huge bottles of drinking water. Donard made a point of meeting and talking to each guest, and went out of his way to help. I saw him accept a library book from a departing guest and offered to return it for them. While there my wife and I were hunting for a house to purchase, and Donard offered to help us in any way he could. He explained some of the lessons he learned when he first arrived and offered his advise. I truly enjoyed my stay there and would stay with them again.

Luz en Yucatan has so much to offer. the overall feel of the place is intimate and enchanting. The staff has always been helpful, accommodating , and friendly. Though the hotel is small, the rooms are spacious and comfortable. We have stayed in the large family room upstairs. It is amazing with an open kitchen and a bar. But, even when without this room, there is a communal kitchen next to large dinning table, a plus with a large family.
The location is perfect for walking to the grande plaza and Paseo de Montejo. For a leisurely Sunday bike ride through the streets of Merida, there is a pop-up bike rental 1/2 block away.

Room Tip: If you have a large family, they have one with 4 beds.

...TA needs to add a 10 Star Rating!

Honestly, I am hesitant to give such a glowing review, since it may affect my ability to book a room in the future... If everyone finds out how awesome Luz is, It will be booked 5 years in advance!

Luz En Yucatan has raised the bar when it comes to excellence in running a hotel. Owner Tom and his marvelous staff provided my best overall experience of any hotel ever! Tom and crew serve as True Ambassadors of Merida. They made my first impression of Merida a stellar one. Never have I felt so welcomed in any city or any hotel...Never!

The property and rooms are beautifully done in Colonial Style, and are impeccably maintained. Guests will find a complimentary Adult Beverage Cart in front of the office, and a couple of ice cold local beers (Montejo) in the ensuite fridge, a full 4 liter bottle of purified water and a coffee pot with everything you need to start the day off right. The only things missing were a Breakfast Pastry and a soda vending machine for drink mixers. (but hey, 99.9% perfect is perfectly acceptable to me)

If you want to know what Heaven is really like,.. Make your reservations NOW for *****Luz En Yucatan!*****

People will now have to say: "I've Died and Went To Luz En Yucatan!"

Room Tip: Look no farther than Luz En Yucatan! This is THE PLACE THE PLACE TO STAY IN MERIDA! Bring your o...

Ok, it's officially Casa de Luz, the house down the block from the hotel, but it's wonderful nonetheless. Well appointed, designed, and built, the house has everything you need for a pleasant visit to the nice colonial town of Merida. Kudos to Tom for a job well done.

Room Tip: If you want a room, then talk to Tom. If you want a house.. talk to him too!
