“Great hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2014

The hotel is located in the center of Merida, however it's really quiet.
Friendly staff and helpful. We received a map of the city with all the useful informations.
Big, clean and confortable room with a beautiful private terrasse. Drinkable water, fridge with a welcome beer, fan and air conditionning. We stayed only one night but it's the perfect hotel to stay a little bit longer.
Parking across the street.

WOW.... we travelled to Merida from San Pedro, Belize and absolutely loved the City, the Culture, the Architecture... but it all started at Luz En Yucatan. The Luz is an Oasis... Great Location. Nice room with all the personal touches like Water Jug.... a couple Cervezas when we arrived... Great endless Hot Water System (rare to find some times) and a comfortable bed. Tom and his Staff were fantastic! I would highly recommend Luz En Yucatan... It was Outstanding for a fair price. We would always stay there if we could when in Merida.

Room Tip: Pool Side Rooms are really nice with a Private Small Courtyard at your personal disposal or a Lanai...

We could not say enough positive things about our stay at the Luz in Merida. We went last year and stayed in the main hotel and loved it so much we went back this year and rented the Casa de Luz for our family. I never wanted to leave. The ambience of the place is so welcoming and the staff so warm and helpful. Donard and Tom could not have been more accommodating to make sure we had everything we needed to have a fantastic holiday. And that we did. We would recommend this place to anyone if you are looking for a fabulous place to stay in Merida. Love it!

Wow! 'Luz' is an absolutely wonderful hotel in a great city. Many people will come to Mexico and do the "all inclusive" beach type of holiday which is their loss. It's only by coming to places like Merida that you will find the real Mexico. The Luz en Yucatan is a hotel with real character and charm. The rooms are very well appointed with most of the required accessories, although I had to borrow a hair dryer from reception for my wife!
Don't expect a 5 star luxury hotel, this has far more to offer than that. This place oozes a traditional Yucatan hospitality experience for the traveller with taste and an expectation of unique boutique accommodation at a good price. Fantastic staff always willing to help plus a great location complete a totally worthwhile experience.

I'll keep this short and sweet. Luz En Yucatan is simply perfect. Friendly people, comfortable, a great location, and the place itself is picture perfect. The proprietors are helpful and welcoming. The little touches -- a couple cold beers in the refrigerator, a cart of liqueurs in the hallway -- add up to great hospitality. The rooms are roomy and inexpensive. The pool is refreshing and relaxing. One of the best places we've stayed in the Yucatan.

From the location to the price to the helpfulness of every member of the staff, we were very pleased with this hotel in Merida. We arrived on a Thursday night, were greeted with a smile and a 3-page guide to the area and led to our third-floor room. The hotel is beautifully furnished and almost glows at night. While our room itself was fairly basic, it was spotlessly clean and comfortable, with a private patio replete with a hammock and table/chairs. We could hear the music from Plaza St. Lucia from the next block-- what a perfect way to begin our stay. No money had been collected yet-- we were told we could pay the next day. What?!
Our first day in Merida we took a city bus tour to get a feel for Merida. Our guide was somewhat uninspired, but it was helpful to get our bearings and learn a bit more of the city's history. We quickly realized what an ideal location Luz has-- so much to see and do within walking distance in the heart of the historical center of town.
The management was incredibly helpful-- they secured our DO bus tickets to Tulum for the next segment of our trip, gave us great advice about shopping and activities, facilitated our tour to Uxmal, and called a taxi on our last morning. Each staff member we encountered was cheerful and accommodating.
We enjoyed a nightly pre-dinner ritual: stopping by one of two convenience stores nearby, we purchased snacks and soft drinks. We then spiked our drinks with a shot of rum or tequila from the liquor cart and spent a bit of time enjoying our patio as the evening cooled.
Merida was a happy surprise for us, and Luz en Yucatan was central to the experience. We would definitely stay here again; it really does feel like a home away from home!

Room Tip: Third floor "Cielito" was basic, but private patio was a bonus. Be prepared to climb stair...

Here is another treasure hidden behind a blank facade. Having read reviews, we had requested a first floor room overlooking the pool, which was lovely. Some of the other rooms were darker, and others had kitchenettes, although there is a communal kitchen available, and a coffee maker and fridge in our room. We didn't intend any catering so ours was ideal, a good size, and bright and airy, with a really comfy bed. Location is perfect, so central, with a parking lot across the street. There was always a member of staff to help with any queries and all were friendly and helpful. You can either make your own breakfast or eat in one of several local cafés, the closest just across the street.
