I loved this place, right in the middle of the Centro, an oasis of tranquility and beauty and Tom is terrific, makes you feel right at home, beers in the fridge when you arrive, easy parking in a lot across the street for a small charge, the most amazing royal palm trees that flank the pool, masks on the wall, a great kitchen, well stocked though we never had a chance to use it, too busy eating out.
Would love to return to this place.

Ochre-walled courtyard with banana palms and blue swimming pool. Big rooms and comfortable beds. Laid-back but helpful owner and staff. Three minutes walk from the centre of this lovely town. Cafe over the road for breakfast, or self-catering facilities in the hotel. Just what we wanted.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Luz. Tom and Lupita helped make our first visit to Mexico a wonderful experience. Without any fuss Lupita booked our tours whilst Tom gave us advice to make the most of our stay in the lively and interesting city of Merida. The service by everyone was personal and excellent and the small things of providing beer in the refrigerator and having pure water on hand were appreciated.
We would thorough recommend staying at Luz when in Merida as it has a great atmosphere and the patrons are as friendly and interesting as the proprietors.

I agree with the positive reviews. It's a good place to stay, well located in Merida. Staff are friendly. I'll stay there again next time I'm in Merida

Traveled to Merida, Yucatan and spent the first few days in town. After the taxi cab driver dropped us off further from the facility than needed, we were greeted by the night staff in a friendly and helpful manner. The room we (myself, wife and two children) had was perfect. It was located downstairs next to the pool area and was very clean and well kept. Met the owner the next morning after a very restful night and Tom was a gracious host. Was very helpful in directing us to a rental car agency and other nearby sites. Located close to the downtown area, within a few block walking distance, but nice and quiet in the night hours. Easy parking across the street. A pleasure to stay there.

If you don't like big commercial hotels, then Hotel Luz en Yucatán is the right one for you! Nicely decorated, small but charming. Tim and Lupita were so nice to us, giving us tips about the city and what to do. They even recommended us a tour to Uxmal and Kabah, which was excellent and at a good price! The hotel is very cosy and has a nice pool. We stayed at room "Casita", which has a small terrace with a hammock. There are plenty options where to have breakfast or lunch since the hotel is perfectly located near by the center of Mérida. You will not regret it and the price of the room is quite convinient.

We loved our home away from home and can not wait to return. I actually visited the site today just to dwell in the happy memories a moment. Donal was always helpful with informed answers to our gazillion questions. There are so many places that looked wonderful to stay around the city, but when you find a place like this, why wander? The location is superb. I came with my partner for his dental work, and we were blissfully happy.
