Casa Del Maya
Ranked #1 of 86 Merida B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 February 2014

We were greeted with drinks and a hand shake. Jamaica tea on ice for Lana and a Sol beer for me. And It only got better. One of the reasons we chose Casa Maya, was because there were no negative reviews. Now I see why.... It is a simply lovely renovated Old Town Colonial home. Steve and Jordy made feel right at home.
Now lets talk about food, it starts with home made cinnamon roll, followed with a great fruit bowl with yogurt. Then comes the entree, day 1 - French toast & bacon (best ever), day 2 - breakfast burrito, (way good), day 3 - Quiche served in a bowl, (wow). Always a refreshing Jamaica/orange juice drink and great coffee.
Our room and the garden area were so inviting we spent an entire morning enjoying it.
The proximity to town was a healthy stroll. Steve & Jordy offered great advise on where to go and what to do. Merida is a wonderful place to visit and you should use Casa Del Maya as your base, we will the next time!

Room Tip: All the rooms are great.

We loved our stay with Jordy and Steve. They've created a beautiful retreat in the heart of the city, and they welcome their guests with warmth and generosity. Lovely rooms, great breakfasts, and many opportunities to explore the city and surrounding region. One of the world's best B&Bs.

From the moment I spoke with Jordy on the phone for the booking I knew this was going to be a special place to stay. He helped me choose the perfect room for our needs and answered my many questions about Merida, going above and beyond and even letting me know I could contact him again before our visit if I needed any additional information. Upon arriving, Steve greeted us if we were his house guests, even offering us a beverage.
The property is beautiful and I can't stop dreaming about the silky orange bed linens. Jordy could open a restaurant with his cooking skills. The location is perfect, easy walk or quick bus ride to the main square but in a quiet neighborhood with wonderful restaurants near by.
What makes this place so special, though, is Jordy and Steve. They define the word, "gentlemen."
My only regret when I left is that I did not grab a handful of business cards and hand them out as we traveled the Yucatan to let others know that this is THE PLACE TO STAY IN MERIDA!!

Great guests make for great stays...and all our guests have been great! B&B's seem to attract adventurous people who love to get out and explore. And we feel Casa Del Maya is the perfect location from which to explore Merida and the Yucatan peninsula. So much to see and do!

Staying at Casa Del Maya whas the best B & B I have ever stayed at, in the world. In my travels to Australia, England, Scotland, South Africa, Mexico, Canada, France, the Caribbean and the US, this is by far the best experience I've ever
had.

Steve and Jordy did not skip a beat in every amenity and service imaginable to make their guests feel comfortable and welcome! The breakfast everyday was delicious and abundant. The rooms were tastefully decorated and impeccably clean. They helped us with reservations for sightseeing, dinners and everything in between.

I never write reviews, but this time it would be an injustice to this fabulous B & B if I didn't. I will return to the beautiful city Merida and the only place I'll stay is Casa del Maya!!!!!

One of the services we feel is important to provide our guests is where to go, what to see, and where to eat. We try to experience all the restaurants we recommend and steer our guests to the best Merida experiences. So glad it was a great stay for you. Hope to see you again!

Casa del Maya is a very special place. Off a nondescript street a few blocks from the city centre, you enter this oasis of tropical beauty and amazing hospitality. From the moment we arrived, Jordy and Steve (the American ex-pat owners) made us feel that their casa was our casa. They are smart, informative, warm and generous guys who really do aim to make their guests feel well cared for. The breakfasts are a case in point. For starters, Jordy's homemade cinnamon buns are becoming legendary in Central America and beyond! They serve large quantities of fresh fruit & yogurt, maya juice, and every morning a different remarkable, delicious Jordy-cooked creation. The grounds are lovely and the rooms are all brand new yet traditional in style and colours. We stayed in the Balam (Jaguar) room on the second floor and awoke every morning to the sounds of dozens of different bird calls. It was absolutely delightful. Jordy & Steve gave us lots of helpful information, booked our day-trip to Uxmal and Kabah, and when we asked about a laundromat Steve said, "Sure, I'll take it and pick it up for you"--and he did. Honestly, we've never felt better treated in any of our travels--and all for less than $100/day.

Room Tip: In the upstairs rooms you feel like you're in the tropical forest canopy.

I spent 2 nights at Casa del Maya at the end of January and had a great time. It is in a quiet neighborhood close to the grand plaza with many restaurants and shopping close by. Jordy and Steve certainly are fabulous hosts-very welcoming and making sure I felt comfortable. The home cooked breakfast was excellent, my room every comfortable and I slept well. They helped me with some personal research and helped me get a cab to the airport. I speak so little Spanish as to be somewhat helpless and their assistance was invaluable to me! The Casa del Maya is an oasis to come back to from shopping and sight seeing in Merida.

Room Tip: I had a ground floor room and find stairs with luggage challen

We don't exactly speak fluent Spanish, but we pretty much can help our guests out with anything they need while in Merida. Come back, and stay longer next time!

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!
