Reviewed 22 September 2010

I can't recommend Luz En Yucatan enough. It's location is ideal for exploring the city centre. The owner Tom is more than hospitable and fills the place with some great small touches. from the free shots of Tequila in the lobby, to the water jug in your room this is a well thought out experience. The small pool in the courtyard is more than adequate for a quick cool off and it's surrounded by a green garden, antique iron work and some unique pottery and sculpture. I'm sure this boutique hotel will continue to "top the charts" for years to come.

Hello,
My husband and me stayed at Luz for 4 nights this summer, as part of a 3 week trip to Mexico.

You could pass by Luz without even noticing it because its so unassuming from the outside, and so is the entrance hall. It's when you go further that you discover this very charming hotel, very green and beautiful !!
We were booked in the room with a terrace that had a lovely open kitchen and hammock ! The room was very tastefully done, each detail thought of. Impeccably clean. We passed 4 very serene nights having slept amazingly well at Luz .
The owner and the staff are amazingly helpful. The hotel is very well run. The owner hands you a list of places to eat in when you check in : things to do and see , etc etc. We always had it with us because the recommendations were just perfect !
To top it all, there's a Tequila bar that you can help yourself to and a welcome beer waiting for you in the fridge !

Behind quite an anonymous front which doesn't even confirm the building is a hotel, the door opens onto a shady courtyard, leading to a long dark corridor with Mediterranean style rooms opening out onto private patios and a swimming pool.
I loved this place. It is really well equiped with a/c, a fridge etc. Plus there are many little touches which made me feel at home - two beers on arrival, a tray of Mexican spirits and friendly staff who help book tours and provide a really useful list of Merida information on arrival. There was also a hammock in the room!
I can definitely recommend this place.

One of the best hotels we stayed in during our vist. The staff and owners were so helpful. they couldn't do enough to help us during our stay. The pool and garden, although compact are lovely and our private terrace was a lovely haven. Local shots are availible free as well as fresh coffee and a couple of complimentary beers. Drinking water was availible in the rooms. The beds were very comfortable and the room had ceiling fans and a brilliant AC. The bathroom was airy and spacious.
Although no breakfast on offer we visited the little cafe over the road, which was very good value and the owners were lovely, giving uscomplimentary top ups on our coffees.

I would recommend this gotel to anyone, FAB

Wonderful find of a hotel in downtown next to the church of St. Lucia and within easy walking distance to areas all over Centro. We stayed in the Penthouse suite - lovely, clean with outdoor kitchen, fresh water and Wifi in room. Staff is wonderful and helpful. Parking across the street makes life easy when you want to explore the outer Merida area.

Stayed here for 3 days and loved it. We had a really spacious, comfortable room that opened onto a patio right next to the small pool. The staff were so helpful right from our emails when organising the trip to the minute we left. Several little touches, such as fresh ground coffee and a water dispenser in the room, good quality bed linen and help yourself tequila and liquers in the reception area, added to our great experience here. So glad we found this gem.
