“A Gem!”
Reviewed 16 March 2014 via mobile

From the moment we walked through the door into the lush garden we knew we were in for a treat. Steve and Jordy have seen to every detail: gourmet breakfasts, beautiful room decorated in the bright Mayan yellows and blues and a pool to soak in after a day of touring ruins or wandering the streets of Merida. And they were the perfect hosts--full of great advise about where to go and what to see. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Merida.

I have visited Mérida several times and never stayed in such a nice B&B. The owners are Jordy and Steve and they are friendly, considerate and knowledgeable.

Friendly: They stopped by our table during breakfast, or asked us daily if we needed anything.

Considerate: Jordy made tasty gluten free food for us. They met our Yucatecan friends with coffee when they came to visit us. They packed us treat before we left at 5:00 AM for our flight home.

Knowledgeable: Overheard them many times make several recommendations to other guests. For us they identified bus routes and an excellent and little known local restaurant.

I have made another reservation and look forward to the clean rooms, peaceful setting and delicious breakfast.

We are very pleased with our location, as well. Just blocks to Santa Ana Park, Paseo Montejo, Santa Lucia Park, and the Plaza Grande, as well as restaurants, museums, and stores of all kinds. Looking forward to your return!

We stayed 3 nights at this top notch B&B. You won't find better..Excellent hosts , excellent breakfasts, excellent rooms. The other excellent reviews you see in this site are true ...although it is hard to imagine such a good place exists... Yes it does .. try it and you'll be pleased.

Room Tip: It is normal in Mexico to charge extra for A/c use, due electricity costs. All rooms are excellent...

So glad you enjoyed staying with us. And yes, many other hotels charge for air conditioning, but at Casa Del Maya, A/C is always included at no extra charge. Just as is bottled water and a full breakfast each morning.

I don't normally gush but I will gush about this place. The room was wonderful, the bed comfortable, the rainfall shower amazing, and the breakfast fabulous. But the best part of this B&B are the hosts Steve and Jordy. They sent us out each morning well fed, well informed and with two bottles of water - what more can you ask? I cannot recommend this B&B highly enough.

Adventurous, intelligent, curious guests are wonderful to have at Casa Del Maya. And we seem to be fortunate enough that they find us. In two seasons we have seen none but wonderfully open, intrepid people visit Merida. Hope to see you again!

Travelling alone, I stayed at Casa del Mayo for 8 days in February 2014. The experience was highly satisfactory in all respects. Jordy and Steve are friendly and knowledgeable hosts, they have created a happy oasis in the middle of a bustling city, and they go way way out of their way to make a stay in it a pleasure. I just wish that there were more Jody and Steve B&Bs in this world, but they are, alas, unique, so you will have to go to Mérida to experience the pleasure of their company. I recommend that you do just that.

This was the best B&B that I've stayed at! Upon arriving we were greeted at the door by Jody and Steve who offered us cold drinks. Our rooms were in a separate little building behind the pool , very private. The rooms were clean and lovely, decorated with a Mexican flair. There was even a hammock in the room and bottled water was always available. Steve and Jordy made us feel right at home. They had plenty of suggestions for places to eat and things to do. The breakfast they served was my favorite meal of the day. Breakfast started everyday with fresh fruit salad and yogurt with warm cinnamon rolls. This was followed by a hot entree. My favorite was the french toast.

Staying at Casa Del Maya was like staying with friends.Whatever we needed whether it be band aids for our blisters or something to settle our upset stomachs our hosts seemed to have it. Merida is a wonderful little town. I would highly recommend if you plan on visiting, do stay with Jordy and Steve they will help make your vacation memorable.

Room Tip: The upstairs room are a bit more private

I hardly ever write reviews, never mind very positive ones. We stayed for a week and felt catered to. Fantastic breakfasts. Very helpful in suggesting places to shop, eat, and tour. Always provided water to go to keep you hydrated. Provided directions. Just had a fantastic stay!!!
