Cascadas de Merida
Ranked #5 of 85 Merida B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 April 2014

Wonderful B&B with excellent full breakfast, refreshing pool, clean, nicely decorated rooms and very knowledgeable owners willing to share so much information about Merida from living in this city to history to plants to restaurants, beaches and yoga! We really enjoyed our too brief stay.We met some other interesting travelers and would definitely return.

Room Tip: We stayed in a poolside room that we enjoyed

Many factors go into deciding where to stay on a trip. What level of comfort do we need or want? What level of "ground support" do we need on this journey? As an independent traveler, my decisions on that score vary with the destination. If I'm in a familiar place, I'll go with an apartment. But if I'm traveling to a new destination where I might require some help in understanding or navigation, I go for a smaller hotel or B & B where the hosts can offer some guidance without, I always hope, being too intrusive!

In our first trip to Merida, my sons (ages 9 and 12) and I found the perfect place. The Cascadas de Merida is a 4-room B & B located a few blocks from the historical centro, and just a couple of blocks from another smaller, lively square. The rooms are comfortable and impeccable. The level of comfort of bedding is really the highest, the bathroom facilities were great, including an awesome glassed-in (but still private) shower, the pool was a very good size, and the food was lovely and filling.

What brings this B & B up to an even higher level is quality of the staff, beginning and ending with the owners, Ellyne and Chucho. What delightful, helpful folks. Ellyne's design and hospitality instincts are right on target and both gave excellent advice on how best to spend our time in Merida. As I indicated in the title of my review, not only was this the perfect choice for Merida, anyone wanting to learn how to run a successful, comfortable and accommodating B & B would do well to take lessons here!

Room Tip: They are all great, opening right to the pool.

We had a wonderful 4 day stay at Cascadas and would definitely return. Ellyne and Chucho were extremely welcoming and helpful - plus great breakfasts surrounded by wonderful folk art and furnishings. Imagine a pool right outside your room, waterfalls cascading down the walls with a hammock and lounge chairs! The room was clean and airy, glass shower with waterfall just outside (!), comfortable beds. Location worked fine for walking to town and local market area, quiet for sleeping, parking available, easy to drive to museums. Highly recommend.

Quiet, safe location, has everything you need! Pretty rooms, super clean, comfortable beds, tv, great wifi, good water pressure, a/c. Only 4 bedrooms but separated well enough around the pool for privacy. Ellyne serves a great breakfast daily and goes out of her way to help you negotiate Merida. She will let you know, in advance of any special events (and there always are) happening during your stay. She will recommend restaurants and shops, etc. Invaluable attention to you so you enjoy your stay in Merida.
We would definitely stay with she and Chucho again!

Room Tip: Choose from one bed or two beds. We had a large king bed.

We recently had the joy of being guests at Cascadas de Merida for several nights. We could not have been more comfortable or more welcome. Ellyne went out of her way to ensure everyone enjoyed a bountiful and very delicious and varied breakfast each day, that we had all the information necessary to have another wonderful day in Merida, and that each suite was so well appointed you were never in want of anything. She could not have done enough for you at any time. The entire place is beautifully decorated and Ellyne so well informed about all the art, the knowledge of which she imparted to all. The linens were the best of our entire stay in Mexico and the suites the cleanest of any place we stayed. The staff were friendly and courteous at all times as well. What more could you ask? Thank you to Ellyne and Chucho for easing us into the wonderful life in Merida. And the location is tops!

My husband and I (seniors) so enjoyed our first stay with Ellyne and Chucho in early January 2013, we planned our Mexican visit this January 2014 specifically to include Cascadas - our "home" in Merida. Cascadas is comfortable, tranquil, tasteful, architecturally attractive, and well appointed. It is in a quiet, convenient part of Merida. The sound of the cascades is peaceful. The pool is an asset. The breakfast is fabulous - and always includes our favorites: tropical fruits, mango yoghurt, and homemade granola; plus something special and delicious every day. Ellyne is a mine of good advice about enjoying Merida. We are already thinking about our next visit with our friends Ellyne and Chucho.

My wife Lynda son Matthew & I stopped in for a visit early January of this year and it just so happened it was 3 Kings day and we had the best time of our trip at this wonderful little B&B. Ellyne & Chucho the owners of Cascadas have a charming place for travelers in an amazing city. From the outside you might think twice, but once entering into their lovely place you will be amazed at what you find. Beautiful waterfalls everywhere and spacious well furnished rooms with glass showers with calming waterfalls outside. Ellyne does a marvelous job of being a gracious host and provides not only a top notch B&B with an incredible breakfast, but she goes out of her way to be a great host. Not only will she give you great directions and places to see, she also let's you know the best restaurants to eat at. She shares wonderful memories of her past and is truly interested in who you are and where you are going. On our 2nd day it was 3 Kings day and they exposed us to a local tradition in which they make a breakfast wreath out of sweet bread that is covered with candied fruit and inside contains a baby Jesus. The person who finds this is supposed to host a party I believe in February for others. Well what do you know but of course my wife Lynda gets the baby Jesus. Ellyne was gracious enough to let my wife out of that since we live in California, but if we lived there you betcha my wife would throwing that party since she loves to throw parties. My wife still talks about this with all of our friends. In this day and age it is really hard to find someone who runs a business the way it should be run. We have been to many B&B's and this one is tops on our list. If you are traveling to Merida stop in a say Hi to Ellyne and Chuco and tell them Lynda Kevin and Matt said Hi! from Long Beach California.
