This place is a hidden gem! Its a real hidden palace. The staff was extremely helpful and always available for advice. The bed was comfortable and showers luxurious. Food was delicious. The place was quite and well kept. My only problem was that wifi was not reaching my room so had to walk across the hallway to get connected

The name says it all. The hotel is barely noticable on the street unless you are looking for it. When you walk in it opens into a beautiful courtyard that screams "relaxation!". The staff was wonderful and helped us schedule a COVID test to return back home. There was breakfast in the morning to start our day and a nice pool for a swim to end our day. We received a nice massage from the spa too. Note to travelers Merida is VERY hot compared to oceanfront cities. Drink plenty of water.

This hotel in the US would cost over $1000 per night . It’s such a beautiful boutique hotel, I felt like royalty when staying there. Beautifuly furnished , landscaping and pool areas rival a mansion.

10/10 Exceptional

This is the first hotel my husband has actually ask to stay another night. We stayed here again despite us having a current non refundable amount at another hotel. You walk in and can not believe the amount of detail. Hand carved pillars and tile set against antique furnishings. We stayed in two different rooms and it felt like we were visiting the Queen of England. We purposely did not go see some sights so that we could have and excuse to come back to stay again. Fabulous staff and communication. The breakfast was hand prepared by a chef and was delicious. Only a few blocks from the square and supermarket. We ate at the Mercedo ( many venders) and the pizza place by the square both were excellent. The Mercedo also has live music every night of the week. The ruins Of Uxmal were even better then Chichen Itza. Dzibilchaltun has a fabulous Cenote. You will not be disappointed, I assure you.
