“A great new addition to BandB's in Merida”
Reviewed 20 May 2013

While planning our vacation to Merida and the Yucatan, my wife found Casa Del Maya B and B during her research. Newly opened we decided to give them a try. We have stayed at various B and B's in Merida over the past few years.
Since this was a new BandB we expected there would be the normal "opening night" kinks yet to be worked out .To our surprise we found none. The owners, Steve and Jordy, had running a BandB down to a science.. The rooms were extremely clean, comfortable and inviting. Steve and Jordy were very affable and accomodating. They went out of their way to make our four night stay a memorable one.
Breakfast was top notch and relaxing and was the perfect start to a busy day touring Merida which is a beautiful and captivating city. Casa Del Maya is within walking distance to many restaurants and bus routes
Steve and Jordy, you have done a great job .Keep up the good work. We will definitely return.

Hearing from our Canadian friends is always delightful. Thanks for your kind words. Guests who've stayed at Casa Del Maya know that creating a comfortable, inviting atmosphere is very important to us. We're also happy you enjoyed how we access desirable locations (Santa Ana, Santiago, and Santa Lucia Parks, Paseo Montejo, and the Zocalo) in walkable fashion with easy access to buses for malls, Gran Museo del Mundo Maya, and Progreso beach. In fact we've had 3 new terrific restaurants open in Santa Ana area since your visit. We look forward to your next trip!

I was lucky to be able to book a month and truly enjoy Casa del Maya and Merida. Great location for access to everything. Anything I needed and wanted was in walking distance. Careful of the short walk past the kitchen stocked Jordy's amazing cinnamon rolls. Temptation at its best. The room was great. Bed was perfect. Breakfast was amazing. The pool although "smaller" was exactly the right size for cooling off after a day out walking the city.

I was wondering where all those cinnamon rolls were going! LOL So very glad you liked them; they are always sitting on the kitchen counter for that "light" afternoon or evening snack. What a luxury it must have been for you to be able to take a month off! But we are lucky enough to live in Merida, so we always feel like we're in vacation mode. There's just something about this place - everyone should be lucky enough to visit Merida.

My wife and I just got back from a trip to Merida and we are so glad we picked Casa Del Maya B&B. This place looks and feels brand new. Steve and Jordy have done a great job with the details from top to bottom. One of our favorites was the shower head comes from the ceiling like a waterfall. And the water bottles up front ready to grab on your way out, and the cool decorating touches, pool. Very comfortable bed. It has the conveniences of back home with the local style. Breakfast was very good everyday-mixed fruit, cinnamon rolls, carmelized French Toast, sausage, etc. Steve and Jordy bent over backwards to accommodate us. They felt like old friends by the time we left. Thanks!!!!!

We are really happy you enjoyed your stay at Casa Del Maya. And, yes, we have made many new friends. We love those showerheads, too and put them in our own showers. It's like showering in a rain shower - so relaxing. We'll see you again, right?

We could not have been more pleased with our stay at Casa del Maya. This was our first trip to Merida & Steve & Jordie made our trip stress free. From our first contact until the day we left they could not have been more helpful & accommodating. The B&B was comfortable, clean, beautifully decorated & a pleasure to find in the heart of the city. We so enjoyed the other guests & every morning we would compare notes on what to see, where to eat, & how to best enjoy our time in Merida. Steve & Jordie provided a beautiful setting, fantastic breakfasts to start the day, & their suggestions on how best to enjoy their city could not have been more appreciated. We hope to return there next year as we could not recommend a better place to stay. Awesome B&B!

One of the things we love about B&Bs is the chance to all get together and talk over breakfast. We learn so much from our guests! Morning breakfast by the pool is always such a treat, even for us. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay and sure hope you'll return!

Steve and Jordy are two of the most amazing and sweetest hosts, great human beings, kind and more than capable of making your stay the best it can be. The rooms are clean, classy, comfortable and artfully decorated. The price is very reasonable for the location and style of accommodations INCLUDING the food, which was absolutely amazing. The house is very safe, secure and is very close to la plaza, well within reach of anything you'd like to do in Merida. We highly recommend this to any traveler seeking a great place to stay in Merida - even if you're not planning on Merida, the city is surprisingly cool, historic, artistic, fun, tasty and worth the journey, a great excuse to book at Casa Del Maya!!!

Room Tip: Book in Advance, there are only a few rooms.

My husband and four family members recently returned from our first trip to Merida. Our stay at Casa Del Maya was incredible. Steve and Jordy were so helpful from arranging transportation to and from Cancun to Merida as well as excursions during our stay. The bed and breakfast is homey, inviting and squeaky clean. The breakfast is delicious, including homemade cinnamon rolls daily, yummy! We walked all over the city with no problem. The pool was inviting and enjoyable in the mid afternoon to relax and unwind, getting ready for our next adventure. Steve and Jordy run a first class operation, can't wait for a return trip.

Room Tip: Stayed in Chaac right beside the pool, loved it!

How nice it is to host families and help them celebrate their special occasions . They were a delight to have at Casa Del Maya. We enjoyed the pool together and talked for hours at a time. One of the best things about Merida is the ability to walk everywhere; you really have the chance to see the city that way. Museums, restaurants, parks, fiestas, dancing, music, and much more just a few minutes walk from Casa Del Maya. Sure hope to see them again!

This pretty new B&B is in a quiet neighborhood but easily walkable to the historic center of Merida. Steve and Jordie were marvelous hosts, with lots of information about shopping and restaurants, and werved fabulous breakfasts. Our only problem was it was too much food! The homemade cinnamon rolls were amazing. The rooms were pretty and comfortable and the little garden and pool were appealing.

We're so glad you enjoyed your stay and our location. We like that we are not only close to the main square, but also close to so many other great Merida attractions, such as Paseo Montejo with its fantastic restaurants, Santa Ana park with its ever-growing shops and wonderful cocina economicas, and the many art galleries just a few blocks from Casa Del Maya. If you didn't get the chance this time, Noche Mexicana, or Mexico Night, is every Saturday night just 4 blocks away! We hope we made you feel at home.
