“Most welcoming b & b ever”
Reviewed 23 February 2014 via mobile

Ellyne and her husband Chucho along with their staff are exceptionally welcoming and very invested in making sure every person has a wonderful stay. The breakfasts were amazing. Hand cut fresh fruit and wonderful huevos (think chilaquiles verde, motulenos, yummmm!) along with the house blended coffee and fresh made juices among a host of other items set everyone off on the right foot each day. Ellyne is a font of information on restaurants, sites and tours. The building is well maintained and the separate Casitas give a nice sense of coming home after a hard days sight seeing. If going in February, ask Ellyne about full moon jazz fest tickets. It is a local charity supporting education that is really making a difference to pueblo children and was a great first night out for us. If going to Merida again we will want to stay at Cascades for sure.

Cascadas de Merida is the ultimate B and B. The hospitality of Ellyne and Chucho was beyond anything we have experienced in our extensive travels. The rooms are beautiful, the bed was large and super comfortable, and the shower with glass walls overlooking a waterfall was a luxurious experience, and everything was spotless. The availability of a safe in the room was a plus! We loved coming back in the afternoon to enjoy the pool and relax in the hammocks while enjoying a wonderful fruit drink. It was an easy walk to historic Centro and we felt completely safe walking back in the evening. Ellyne was so helpful with tour and bus arrangements and every restaurant recommendation she made was perfect! Breakfast was beautiful and plentiful each morning and we enjoyed conversing with the other guests around the dining table. This is THE PLACE to stay in Merida.

Room Tip: All the rooms are identical and excellent.

This was our first experience with a B&B. We were pleasantly surprised by the location, property, care and attention provided by Ellyne, Cuccho and their staff. The casita was spacious, comfortable, clean, and poolside. The outdoor patio was enjoyed very much early in the day and after venturing into City Centro. We were treated each morning with a fabulous breakfast and news of the day along with things to do. Each evening on our own or in the company of other guests we enjoyed a cool drink before dinner. I would highly recommend Cascadas de Merida.

I don't usually write reviews but this place wills me to.
I have never experienced hosts as helpful and friendly as Ellyne and Chucho. If some go the extra mile, these guys double it. The gorgeous pool/courtyard, a shower recess to wow the senses, and such tasteful room decorations make this place a touch of paradise.
Our stay in Cascadas de Merida was the first place in Mexico and now all hotels/b'n'b's are compared to it. If you need information about ANYTHING in Merida, Ellyne and Chucho will have it - 95% straight up, 5% they'll find out by the time the next delicious breakfast is served.

Room Tip: All rooms are the same so no bother which one you get - they're all wonderful. We peeked in ano...

When we, husband, wife and adult daughter, walked into Cascadas from a very ordinary looking street we amazed at the property and delighted by the warm welcome we received from Ellyne, quickly followed by a delicious fruit drink. We had 2 rooms, loved the brightly coloured floors, the quality of the furniture and furnishings in the public areas and throughout the property. Lovely, big comfortable beds, colourful furnishings in the casitas(self contained rooms) and huge shower cubicles and shower heads. The casitas were spotlessly clean and only a step to the pool. Amazing that a family back yard had been transformed into a private, secluded and delightful area with the pool, lovely waterfalls and hammocks to relax in. Breakfasts were eaten at a splendidly set table. Everything was first class from the crockery and cutlery to the healthy and wide ranging breakfast foods. Great tea, too. Ellyne was ever helpful and informative. We were there over the New Year and Elleyne provided each of us with wine and our twelve grapes to make wishes for each month of the coming year. We loved Cascadas and highly recommend it.

Room Tip: There are only four casitas, each placed at a corner of the pool. The only choice to make is whether...

I wish I lived in a house like this one!! A friend and I visited Merida in early January and we stayed here for three nights. Ellyne and her staff made us feel like we were staying with family---what I enjoyed most was her breakfast of fresh fruits, stuffed omelets, scones and so much more. She also had great recommendations about restaurants and touristy things to do. There are four rooms, all beautifully decorated, that open into a courtyard of sorts, with a swimming pool and some hammocks and chairs which is great when you want to call it a night but don't necessarily want to retire to your room. It's located in a residential area, but its a short 15 minute walk or 5 minute cab ride from the main square in Merida. There is free wifi and a hairdryer in the room along with all the required toiletries. I'd say definitely ditch the generic hotels for this charming little B&B---you won't be sorry!

Room Tip: I think all the rooms are almost identical with one queen (?) sized bed except one room that has two...

It is no wonder that Cascadas de Merida has won ANOTHER award; the hosts are absolutely wonderful. I live in Merida and so I do not have occasion to stay at the C de M but I have sent numerous guests there and they all rave about what a fantastic place I chose for them. Ellyne and Chucho go the extra mile for their guests... and this reflects well on our whole city

Room Tip: None necessary; all the rooms are perfectly appointed and spotless
