Casa Del Maya

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 February 2014

Just returned from 10 days in the Yucatan and Campeche. Started our trip with a weekend stay at Casa Del Maya Bed & Breakfast. Jordy & Steve are the best! From the moment we arrived we felt like we had stopped to visit some old friends. When we arrived (at 10:30 pm) Jordy met us at the door. He had clearly been waiting for us to arrive. He showed us to our room, gave us a quick overview and asked if we needed anything. When we inquired if there was a place to buy beer nearby, he responded "oh we have beer let me get you couple." This really set the tone for our entire stay. The place is wonderful. Both our rooms were delightful and breakfast was delicious. The place was full during our stay and each morning (while Jordy cooked) Steve would mingle with the guests answering questions, making recommendations for the day, introducing everyone and just talk. If you are anywhere near Merida, don't miss this place!

I spent 14 days at Casa del Maya in December and January. Having stayed in 7 other Merida B&Bs and hotels over the past several years, I can say that this is one of Merida's jewels. The location near Santa Ana square is perfectly situated for walking to both the Central Plaza and the beginning of Paseo Montejo, the city's main north-south boulevard. The rooms are spotless, bright, comfortable, and simply/tastefully decorated with locally-made furniture and art that gives the place a genuine regional flavor. I loved the "rainfall" shower. As everyone has said, the breakfasts were simply wonderful -- delicious, creative, and filling -- and opportunities for great conversations with other guests. But what sets this apart from all the rest is what wonderful hosts Steve and Jordy are -- welcoming and attentive without being intrusive, helpful and informative. They are always working hard to make the place feel like a home away from home. (Disclaimer: I went to school with Steve years ago and we are friends; regardless, I'd highly recommend this to anyone--it's one of the best).

We spent 5 nights at Casa del Maya as part of a 2 week vacation in the Yucatan peninsula. The Casa is in a quiet neighbourhood close to the centre ideally located as a base from which to explore Merida. Steve and Jordy are the ultimate hosts. We were welcomed with a cool glass of white wine and provided with lots of information about things to do and places to eat. Jordy is a great chef and his breakfasts are a real treat ; every morning a new surprise. They also make every effort to make your stay as enjoyable as possible and to introduce you to the other guests.
Very good value and all that a B&B should be.

My partner and I stayed at Casa Del Maya for 2 nights in January and had a fantastic time. Jordy and Steve are attentive, knowledgeable, warm and welcoming hosts. They gave us many helpful tips about Merida and went out of their way to make us comfortable (welcoming us with a cold pool side beer and making me a special lime concoction when I wasn't feeling well!). We enjoyed all of our chats with them and were very impressed with the delicious breakfasts that they prepared.

The property itself is a beautiful, quiet oasis very near the center of bustling Merida. The room was comfortable, clean, and tastefully decorated. I can't say enough good things about our stay at Casa del Maya and will definitely be coming back and recommending it to all of our friends!

Steve and Jordy offer guests a level of hospitality, generosity and kindness that is a rare commodity these days. Breakfasts were a highlight because it was an opportunity to meet other guests and exchange ideas.

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights over New Year's and had such a wonderful time! Steve and Jordy are incredible hosts and have made something really special in the great city of Mérida. It's hard to believe they've only been open for a year! The property is beautiful, serene, and very centrally located. We will definitely be coming back soon!

Getting from the bus station to the casa: by taxi (40-50 pesos) 10 min. drive
Location: northern outskirts of old town and only 15 minutes by walk to the centre of old town, I would say it is better to stay on the outskirts of old town instead of in the centre because is less noise
Welcome-in: we feel like we have visited a good friends abroad
Room: on the first floor, 1 room, toilet wit shower, nice decor, clean, quiet
Patio: small pool perfect to cool down in hot days (not for swimmers) with sunbeds, dining area, rest area, all patio is well maintained
Dining - Breakfast: delicious, Jordy is Masterchef
Kitchen: open for everybody, you may use all the facilities to prepare or store your own dishes
Other: many magazines, travel guides, maps about the Yucatan region, also few games to entertain you at the evening

Steve is the perfect concierge. Ask him about anything. Our son (age 4) ask for cocoa milk and he did every morning:-)
