Luz En Yucatan
quiet urban oasis in Merida
I had a wonderful stay at the beautiful hotel in the center of Merida. The rooms are all unique and spacious, pretty and very comfortable and quiet and include kitchens and huge bathrooms. Madeline Parmet, the proprietor provides a warm welcome and lot of good information about places to eat, shop, go and helps arrange all kinds of activities. Merida is located a short distance from several fabulous archeological Mayan sites. The staff is very friendly. I would definitely recommend this hotel. Besides being lovely and comfortable it is very reasonably priced.
Unique Quality: All apartments are unique. Loving attention had been made to all little details. The common rooms are beautiful and include several sitting rooms and a beautiful little pool in a jungle-y garden setting. The location is excellent, very near the central square and St. Lucia park where weekly free outdoor concerts are held. Although it is in the center of the city the rooms are quiet and one cannot hear noise of the city, nor any sounds from other rooms.
Directions: center of the city , 1/2 block from St. Lucia Park, nest door to a church that dates from 1575
Quirky, Comfy and Right in the Center of Town
Staying at Luz En Yucatan is like staying at your grandmother's house...the one you really like, who has this great big house and lets you put your feet up anywhere. She lets you have a sip of her brandy if you want, swim in her pool, and lie around all day without telling you that you really ought to get out and see a museum.
Luz is run by a wonderful bunch of women, headed by Madeline. It's a rambling old colonial building, with all sorts of nooks, crannies, rooms, decks, stairs, gardens and a great big pool. Every room is different and they all have kitchens.
Its right in the center of town, close to everything. But once you close the front door behind you, you can't tell. It's quiet and peaceful, except for the parrot who likes to make sure you know he's there. She gets all sorts of interesting guests, and you can choose to keep to yourself, or mingle in one of the many common rooms that are populated with couches, hammocks, chairs, games, and even a little free bar. You're on your honor not to drink everything that's there, and if you finish a bottle, you are expected to replace it.
The whole place runs with a loose sort of logic, and its a wonderful way to stay in the Yucatan.
Unique Quality: Pool, every room has a kitchen, plus there's a big community kitchen and dining room. The nicest room, if you can get it, is the penthouse.
