Our double room was comfortable, quiet and there was enough space for our family with two young kids (3 & 5 years old). Considering the class of the hotel, the room could've been in a better condition (one light was not working). Breakfast was not included in the price of the room, and was rather average. The hotel has a... More

Rooms are a good size, large bed, central location. Showing wear and tear in places which made the price we paid seem a little high. Breakfast not included, we feel it should have been for the price. Decent stop for our one night in Merida.

I stayed here for 1 week this month. Although I loved the location, the staff was rude and did not speak english. I was not allowed initially to have a male friend from Mexico City visit me at the hotel. In broken english they said it was "too political." Finally after asking to speak to the manager multiple times, they... More

We stayed for 9 nights and it was perfect. Staff were lovely, very friendly and helpful. Always happy to see you and greet you with a Buenos dias/tardes/noches. Reception desk appeared to be 'manned' 24 hrs. Beds were very comfortable. The hotel was quiet. Pool was great. Got a lot of shade so it was always a refreshing dip! Tip... More

The hotel itself may not be the worst, but our arrival there just created a really bad memory. The guys at the reception couldn't find our reservation, but instead of apologizing they let us wait in the lobby for more than one hour without talking to us or giving us any information, not to mention that they didn't offer us...

The hotel is basic but impeccably clean. Our room was on the ground floor across from the swimming pool and was more than adequate. Breakfast was included in the price and was well above the breakfast offerings in most discount US chains. The best features of this hotel are its proximity to the Cathederal and the Central Square and the... More

Stayed for three nights between christmas and new year. The rooms were impeccably clean, and well presented as was the pool and garden. The breakfast buffet is basic but adequate and there are plenty of alternatives nearby if you want a change. The location is excellent at only a few blocks from the centre of town but most of all,...

We usually stay at the Hyatt, but I wanted to stay closer to the center. This hotel was great. It is a block away from one of the best restaurants on Santa Lucia, a few blocks from the cathedral, it has a pool, it has an excellent coffee shop downstairs. The rooms are clean! Yes, there were no comforters, but... More

My family and I loved this hotel. The staff was helpful with all of our requests, and there were many. They helped us with transportation, finding a dentist on Christmas Eve, directions, and much more. Our room was clean, comfortable, and spacious. It was near the pool but there were never any problems with noise. The breakfast buffet was delicious,... More
