SANTOs restaurant in Merida is the best
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We found the small SANTOs restaurant (across the street from the historic church in city center) and we were hooked.
I have traveled in 26 countries and traveled the Yucatán peninsula 15 times, SANTOs has some of the best food I have ever eaten. The tacos are by far the best I have ever had anywhere.
My granddaughter sent the picture text to her friends and parents so I ask her to send it to me.
We will return.
That one picture says it all.

Magical start to Merida and Mexico
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

This is a terribly late review of our 3 night stay in April, and for that we are sorry as we could not fault our fabulous time at Merida Santiago Hotel Boutique. This beautiful place fully deserves all the credit that it has been given on tripadvisor, you really are guaranteed a first class encounter! The property, the staff, the food are all spot on; we are so glad to have discovered this gem. If we are lucky enough to return to Merida, we would love to spend more time here. Thank you everyone for such a memorable start to our holiday. Celia and David

Best hotel experience I’ve ever had
Reviewed 3 months ago

The hotel is beautiful and kept in great condition. My room was large, and had a great view of the pool. The service was amazing, everyone goes out of their way to accommodate you. And, the food was the best I had in Merida.

Without a doubt, take the cooking class! We toured the community around the hotel, learned a lot of history about Merida, and prepared some delicious yet simple dishes you can easily make at home.

This is more than just a hotel stay. You pay for an experience. It will make your stay in this great city that much greater.

Santiago Hotel, Merida Sharing Traditions Cooking Class and Market Tour.
Reviewed 3 months ago

I had the distinct pleasure of participating in the Sharing Traditions Cooking Class and Market Tour. As things turned out and much to my delight, I ended up being the solo participant in the class. For this foodie who regularly participates in cooking classes while travelling, I would rate this experience as one of my favourite. Everything from the visit to the local Santiago market to the well told history of the area to the actual food prep and feast that followed was a delight. The chef was a talented young man -professional, knowledgeable and friendly. I even got a chance to speak with the couple who owned the hotel where the class took place. I would rate my experience highly! It certainly was one of the highlights of my trip to Merida this past winter. 5 ⭐️.

Best atmosphere
Reviewed 4 months ago

This was our third trip to Merida. We've stayed in a different boutique hotel each time. We liked all three, and each has had distinct pluses. We give the put the Merida Santiago at the top on atmosphere and value. Rita and Jan are superb hosts, as if every member of their staff--we felt absolutely, genuinely welcome every moment of the stay. The facility is fine and scrupulously maintained. The breakfast is excellent. We didn't realize that the hotel has a chef and that lunch and dinner are available, and so had our dinners booked elsewhere for each of our four nights. We'll make up that omission next time.
