Reviewed 10 May 2014

Casa del Maya was the perfect place for our honeymoon bar none. We loved the quiet, tranquil, and exotic oasis we were allowed to call home for 4 days / nights. Steve and Jordy were amazing hosts, and were there to help in any way possible, from making tourist reservations, suggesting places in town, or even keeping our hands full of complementary beer and wine. We both loved it and can't wait to head back! thanks guys!!

Casa del Maya was a perfect choice for us, and is really worth putting at the top of your list for places to stay in Merida.

It's a little walk from the centre of town, but I think that means you get access to slightly different places and not all the obvious tourist traps. Jordy and Steve offered brilliant advice on some really local places to eat, drink and visit. They are welcoming hosts and have created a beautiful place for weary travellers to rest their heads - you feel like you are being warmly welcomed into their home, and they look after you extremely well. Breakfast is delicious and unique and the rooms are clean and brilliantly kitted out with all the mod - cons.

Casa del Maya is also an oasis of calm and a great place to escape the midday heat - the pool is lovely and clean and overlooked by lots of greenery - no noisy traffic or nosy neighbours!

I don't often bother to write reviews as many places don't deserve the time, but I really can't recommend this place enough. Enjoy!

Casa del Maya is a departure from big hotels or smaller hotels due to the hosts and unpretentious setting. The hotel may not be attractive from the outside but it is most charming inside. Would recommend it.

Case Del Maya is by far the best bed & breakfast I have ever had the privilege of staying in all of North America. The hospitality of both Jordy & Steve was evident from the very moment that they met us at the front door. The entire place is clean, colorful, tranquil, relaxing, and you will be sure to enjoy a remarkable rest whether by the pool, or enjoying a good cigar while lounging beneath the shade of gorgeous palms and having a delightful night's rest.

I will also assure you that you will miss Jordy's delicious breakfast!

What a wonderful B&B. A quiet little piece of paradise in Merida. Our accommodations were top-notch and Jordy and Steve were the perfect hosts, making our stay one of the highlights of our vacation. Their B&B is tastefully decorated and has all the comforts we could ask for. The breakfasts were excellent! As much as we enjoyed touring and walking around Merida, we enjoyed coming "home" to our B&B at night. We hope to visit again next year!

Because Casa Maya was rated so highly on Trip Advisor, I had high expectations before we arrived and it was as promised. Spotless, spacious room, central location, welcoming and helpful hosts, delicious breakfasts, polite staff, charming grounds. What I didn't expect was to get pneumonia. Our hosts provided a doctor who came to the Casa and took excellent care of me. Jordy and Steve were most concerned and provided me whatever they could including a special breakfast. The doctor and the Clinica Merida were efficient and effective. My poor husband who had wanted to come to the Yucatan for ages had to fend for himself, but our hosts gave him excellent suggestions of places to visit in Merida. At least we did get to see Chichen Itza together before my collapse. Our hosts arranged an excellent driver/Guide who got us there before the crowds and gave thorough commentary. Our hosts also provided us with all the water we needed to stay hydrated in the hot climate. I highly recommend Casa Maya and am very grateful to Steve and Jordy for going above and beyond the call of duty. I am convinced that I would not have gotten the care I needed at a big-box impersonal hotel.

Room Tip: Large room in the center with sliding door to the pool/patio

Thank you so much for your kind words and we hope you're feeling much better. Getting sick when traveling is never fun but we're glad we could make your visit more comfortable. Having a doctor on-call that will visit Casa Del Maya to treat patients is important to us. We hope you'll visit us again when you can enjoy all Merida and Yucatan have to offer.

I was very nicely greeted by the owners, who are both excellent cooks and very good hosts.

I recommend this place to anyone looking for a very nice, comfortable, B&B, that on top of that serves a wonderful breakfast!

Other than that, they provided: excellent advise on the trips/ tours, restaurants, things to see and do in the city, etc. Don´t forget the house is very well located, only a few blocks from the center.

Please make sure you have the complete address! The confirmation from the booking company was not complete and it took me a while to find it!
