We stayed here for a month in January, and could not have been more pleased. The rooms are spacious and spotless, and the beds are high-quality and comfortable. There is always a large water-cooler sized bottle of purified water in the room for drinking, coffee, teeth-brushing, etc. All rooms, I think, have coffee-makers and refrigerators (with two beers to welcome...

We could live here at Luz, easily! Back for the 3rd year, and never disappointed - the staff is great, rooms wonderful, location can't be beat, and prices are very reasonable. We ALWAYS stay at Luz when we are in Merida.

We just left Merida today And are all ready planning on reserving a week at Luz en Yucatán for Jan 2018. There are many different room types and we had a one bedroom with adjacent living room kitchen. VERY spacious. There is a small but very nice pool area as well as a free Tequila cart in the lobby. This...

Great location. Great people. Beautifully restored, old property. Even a communal kitchen and a dipping pool! Well situated near Santa Lucia church and plaza and easy walking distance to the main plaza. Highly recommended.

Luz en Yucatán is amazing! I stayed there for 7 nights on my last trip to Merida and couldn't have asked for more! The entire staff was so welcoming and friendly! It didn't matter who was in the office everyone was so helpful. The location is excellent and walkable to so many bars, restaurants and shops around the city. I...

We again returned to Merida and returned to the Luz en Yucatan. The owners, Tom and Donard are always welcoming and the employees are outstanding. There is nothing they will not do for you. Whatever it is - just ask. If it's possible to do, it will be done. Pictures don't do this place justice. Clean rooms, clean and refreshing...

Another great visit to Merida staying at Luz en Yucatan. Every review given to the hotel states the truth about how wonderful this small botique hotel is for the Merida traveler. This is my sixth year staying at the hotel and they are always improving. My request was for a first floor room this year, so lovely with new wall...

40's couple from Seattle. Traveled to Yucatan and Central America several times. I rarely post reviews but this place is just unreal. The humorous website suggests an awesome place but it is even better. The property is right in the heart of Merida close to the best shops, food and things to do. Beautiful place, we stayed in the the...

We spent 10 incredible nights at Luz En Yucatan. Each day was an adventure for us and everyone at The Luz helped us along the way. It would be impossible to single out one person because no matter what question or personal issue we had, it was like a family member helping us. From arranging daily drivers/tour guides for trips,...

As a break from hostels while travelling the peninsula we looked for a mid range hotel. This was recommended in the Lonely Planet so we clicked onto their website. They have a 'pay what you feel' system where you pick your price range based on how successful you think you are. I've never seen anything like it before; we felt...
