Hotel Villa Verde Merida
Ranked #2 of 86 Merida B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 February 2014

This was a fabulous place to stay. There is no doubt that we'd stay here again. It was oasis when taking a break from traveling. It is located near many things yet when you close the doors behind you is a world of serenity and beauty. Not only do you get a remarkably tasty breakfast, but you also get a happy hour where you can meet and talk with wonderful people from around the world. Robert was a wealth of knowledge about getting around, tours, and things to do. They were very accommodating to a diet that was a bit of a challenge to cook for. They had some great dogs and cats to reconnect with those pets you left at home. Be sure to check out the library. They can also arrange for a massage at the Villa. It was surprising quiet for being in the middle of a busy city.

When we first arrived Robert greeted us and gave us a small orientation tour of Villa Verde. Location is fantastic, close to the Historic Centre, Paseo de Montejo and a lot of nice restaurants. Each breakfast was delicious and a work of art. We stayed in room 1, it was spacious, clean and the towels were soft and fragrant. Our gracious hosts Robert and Michael go the extra mile and help you in any way they can. They gave us the best recommendations for restaurants and this made our trip a lot more enjoyable. Our favorite part of the day was meeting for happy hour with our hosts and the other guests to share the days events. If you are going to Merida and you are looking for a wonderful place to stay, consider staying at Villa Verde, you will not be disappointed. We already miss the little mascot of Villa Verde named Archie. Very well done gentlemen and we hope to see you again next year.

My husband & I spent 3 nights at Villa Verde. Photos can't capture how beautiful & serene this historic mansion is. It is located only a block or two from the main street making it very pedestrian friendly. The Plaza Grande & the Paseo de Montejo along with all the attractions in between are easily accessible by foot day or night. We had a rental car since we began our holiday in Cancun & were ending it in Tulum. We took a day trip to Celestun to see the flamingos but parked the car the rest of the time. Parking is on a side street; a bit worrisome but we had no issues.

We were greeted by Michael upon arrival. He took us to find a parking spot & gave us a thorough tour of the Villa & our room. He also provided us with city maps outlining all of the main tourist attractions, bank locations, & restaurant recommendations. This was extremely helpful!

Villa Verde has a total of 5 guest rooms. The first 4 are located in the historic building along a beautiful terrace overlooking a small garden & water feature. They offer cathedral ceilings, ornate tile floors, antique windows & doors. We chose the newest room which is an addition to the back of the building. It has a private garden on one side & faces the pool. Although it is spacious, it lacks all of the character that the other rooms have. The bathroom is modern but uninspiring & the furnishings were reminiscent of Ikea. It also had a strong mildew odour. I would recommend one of the terrace rooms instead.

The Villa has a pretty, unheated pool & a few lounge chairs on the patio & a nude sunbathing terrace on the second level. The breakfast area is on a terrace beside the bar overlooking the pool. Breakfast consists of unlimited coffee, fresh O.J., & a creative hot entree. We loved the french toast served with apples cooked in rum; delicious! A complimentary beverage; pop, beer, or wine is served at the bar each evening. Great way to meet the other guests & share stories from the day.

Michael & Robert were gracious hosts; but their poodle Archie stole their thunder! Thanks again for a wonderful stay; highly recommended.

Room Tip: Choose one of the 4 historical rooms along the terrace.

It's taken me quite some time to write my review. This is a truly lovely hotel that is perfectly located. We had a wonderful time in Merida and at the hotel. Robert and Michael are attentive and helpful hosts and really know the hotel business. For example, the beds are divine (a deliberate choice to go for the best on their part). Also, I loved the toiletries provided were fantastic-I'm very picky on that front (FYI, natural/organic and a mild, non-chemical fragrance are important to me, not brands).

I love that they give you time to settle in and then, at your convenience, take time to orient you with a map and recommendations. They really listen to what you want to do. When I saw the pictures of the pool online, I was worried it would be too small, but it's just something about the photo. The pool is a good size! My husband and I definitely plan to return to Merida, and if it's a short visit, we will stay here again! If there were anything I would change it would be this: the occasional smell of smoke bothered my husband, who is sensitive to it, and although most breakfasts were generally excellent, those that are not hot need to be "beefed up" a little.

Room Tip: Room 5 is the most spacious and has a huge closet. As it is at the back, it is the most private. I...

I was one of 10 women who went to Merida with plans to relax, explore Merida and spend time looking inward. We had heard that Villa Verde was amazing, but were completely overwhelmed by all aspects of the property!
Michael and Robert have anticipated every amenity you could dream about. Everything was perfect in every way. Each morning I would get my coffee and sit outside my room and be in awe of what surrounded me! I visualize this now as I am surrounded by snowbanks back home.
We were all so fortunate that Michael and Robert knew the perfect places to explore and then expedited the details for us to make it happen!
I would absolutely return to Villa Verde and next time stay longer.

Room Tip: Our room had 2 queen beds and was perfectly located for access to all amenities.

Villa Verde was the perfect place for our first Goddess Trip to Merida!
Robert and Michael have not only restored a 250 year old villa to pristine elegance ; they have created a place of peace and quiet in the center of a large city that feeds the body and soul.
A group of women on a self-care trip found everything they needed, and felt supported and cared for by our gracious hosts.
They have created the perfect getaway!!!
We are already planning our next trip.
Could not have been more pleased and grateful .

We had a group of 10 women at Villa Verde for a week. We had the entire place to ourselves and we were treated like royalty. Our every need was attended to from early morning until sometimes late at night. Our hosts arranged trips for us as well as airport transportation that was wonderful. We enjoyed 2 fabulous catered dinners and even had our own musician one evening during happy hour and dinner. It couldn't have been more perfect. One week is not enough time to see and do everything, so we will be back for at least 10 days next time.
