Luz En Yucatan
Ranked #3 of 106 Hotels in Merida
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 August 2014

Excellent location, everything (main square, restaurants, sights etc.) are a few minutes walk away. The rooms are well equipped, the beds very comfortable. The staff are very customer oriented and a fountain of knowledge about points of interest, as well as advice on how best to get there, and back. We are going back there in Jan 2015

Room Tip: Rooms on the 2nd floor facing the pool are good.

Luz En Yucatan is a gem. It's perfectly located in Merida to walk and see the plazas and sights of this fantastic vibrant city. The staff is very friendly and laid back ... there's even a complimentary drink at reception. There is a lovely pool to cool down in and and the building itself is beautiful and historic. Even the price is really cheap.

This is a really classy affordable place to stay in central Merida. I highly recommend it and can't wait to return.

Room Tip: Poolside casitas are great and have their own patio beside the pool...

My husband and I stayed one night at Luz En Yucatan in December 2013.
Its very well priced, clean rooms, centrally located and has a lovely little pool area.
The staff were very helpful recommending spots and providing information on nearby restaurants etc.

Luz en Yucatan is a perfect find in the heart of Mérida's historic centre, with very comfortable rooms - some with kitchen, and very friendly staff. This is not the kind of place you would find by walking around looking for a hotel... the main entrance is just a door with a small sign, right behind the Santa Lucia church. Pricing is very good (cash only). I recommend Luz en Yucatan every chance I get - my top choice in Mérida.

I am not sure what else you could want... large clean rooms, perfect location, nice pool and outdoor area, excellent staff. If you are going to Merida just book this place and don't worry about searching any further. Even have a large drum of purified water in each room... simple touches like that just make this place even better!

Room Tip: We had one of the rooms that backs on to the pool... had a great area out the back to sit and relax...

My wife and I just finished a week long stay at Luz En Yucatan the second week of July. We stayed in a pool side room complete with a kitchen and refrigerator. The hotel was outstanding, the room and grounds superb, and the little touches such as drinking water in the room, ice cold A/C, and the tequila cart really are a nice addition. The location of the hotel is perfect for anything you want to do in Merida. True convenience.

While the property is fantastic, what really sets apart this hotel is the entire staff. From Tom the owner, to Jesus, the maintenance man, and all of the other people that work at the property, they really make the Luz a special place. The entire staff goes out of their way to be helpful, point you in the right direction, introduce you to a brand new city and culture, and really make you feel comfortable throughout you entire stay.

If you have any question as to which property to book, I highly recommend the Luz en Yucatan. It sits in a perfect location, it is a beautiful property, and the staff (as well as other guests) make it a one of a kind place.

Thanks - Mark and Tessa

Room Tip: Personally we like the poolside rooms the best, but all were well appointed.
