Hotel Hacienda Merida
Ranked #10 of 105 Hotels in Merida
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 June 2014

Small boutique hotel. Just a short walk to main square. Young staff very friendly and helpful whether with luggage, restaurant suggestions, offering drinks hot and cold. Good English.
Room very nicely appointed - bed very comfortable. Swimming pool very pleasant at the end of a hot day.
No fridge or tea/coffee making facilities in room but staff always happy to make a drink or keep your water bottles in their fridge.
Good Wi-Fi in rooms and reception.
Breakfast was a little confusing as the waiter then did not speak good English and it was difficult to understand what was included in the tariff and what was extra. However as we did not choose any cooked food, there was no extra charge.
Excellent hotel to use as a base for the area and Merida itself which is a very nice and safe town to visit in the evening.

Stayed: June 2014, travelled with friends

We thought this small but well appointed hotel was amazing. The staff were friendly and very accommodating. It was in a great location, only about a 10 minute walk to all of the action that Merida has to offer. We had the best nights sleep of our entire two week trip - the bed was incredibly comfortable and the air conditioning was a nice reprieve from the 35 degree heat with 90% humidity. Our room had the most amazing marble bathroom with a large window beside the walk-in shower that faced a private green space - with a rain head shower nozzle - it was beautiful. We had the best nights sleep of our entire two week trip at this lovely little hotel. The pool was clean and cool and was a nice little break in the afternoon after we had walked around Merida in the heat of the day - they make a mean margarita! We would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: We had one of the back rooms facing the lot that separated the two hotels. It was very quiet.

We spent three nights here in May, using it as a base to visit some local Mayan sites. The hotel was very special. Nothing to look at from the entrance but once inside it opens out onto a lovely cloistered pool, ideal for a dip after some sight seeing. It is very intimate with only 8 rooms, but it never felt too enclosed. The rooms were well presented with free wi-fi, my only problem was a very cool shower, but some might like that in the heat of Merida. The staff were courteous and friendly, giving tips on where to eat from the local restuarants. Breakfast is the only meal served here it was simple but adequate, but there is a bar for pre or post dinner drinks, or just a cold beer around the pool. Cannot praise this hotel enough!

I chose this hotel for the good reviews, location and beautiful design. My husband and I were very impressed upon arrival as the place was exactly as described!

I had requested room 3 since it was recommended by other guests and the hotel accommodated. There was also an issue with our flight and the fee was better through Travelocity than Expedia, causing me to change my reservation. The hotel was extremely accommodating and made certain that my reservation was accurate.

The street view is not impressive, but when you enter you realize the hotel is an oasis. Beautifully and carefully restored. All details are thoughtfully considered. We lounged in the pool during the day and in the evening we had a wonderful time chatting with the charming staff.

I would certainly return! Thank you for a quality experience!

This hotel is like a cool oasis near the Zocalo in Merida. The room was large, with a large bathroom, and was a cool refuge in the middle of a hot Merida afternoon. Best of all, it's near the middle of the old, historic part of Merida, which means that you can park your car and leave it in the protected, free lot and just walk to wherever in town you want to go. There are a lot of interesting restaurants within walking distance, so you don't have to get the car out to go to eat. The information on the hotel says that there are no restaurants at the hotel (true), but they serve a wonderful breakfast in the morning (at extra cost) that enables you to eat on site. There was ample space in the room to spread out two large suitcases and a carry-on. (Not enough room to do that is one of my big travel gripes.) The air conditioner worked very well and the room was pretty and cheerful.

Room Tip: Ask for the room behind the pool if you are interested in using the pool.

I had a fantastic 2 days at the Hacienda Merida. The staff were extremely helpful in advising me the area and also arranging taxis to specific locations I needed to get to. The room was fantastic & the location is really perfect, all the Merida essentials are within walking distance. I would highly recommend this hotel.

For our Honeymoon, on June 2013, we spent two nights in this wonderful hotel in Merida. It was magical, like a little paradise. The rooms are so beautiful and the atmosphere is quiet with this amazing swimming pool and all the hamacs around.
All the team is really helpful and so kind and the owner is really nice too, he gave us good advices for visiting the city. The location of the hotel is great because it's a quiet place, next to the center of the city (5 min walk).
We keep a really good souvenir of this trip.
Thanks a lot
Emmanuel & Nathalie
