How to Get There
We met the hotel's chef, Jacob, earlier in the week at the hotel's cooking class. He was knowledgeable and also experimenting with the hotel's menu. We so enjoyed the cooking class we wondered if he would prepare a special dinner for us later in week. After a chat with Jan, the hotel owner, the date and time were set.
Jacob and his kitchen helper created a five-course meal for 5 of us. So special. All the ingredients were fresh that day. It was evident that Jacob had gone beyond the call. Each course, each plate was delicately designed and presented. With a smile, as each course was delivered, Jacob explained his preparation, the ingredients and what he wished us to expect. And we did. Our first course was a fresh beet salad gently covered in a rendered beet sauce. This was followed by lightly breaded octopus touched with a hint of spices. Then came a pork belly perfectly fried, presented with greens. The main course was carefully grilled venison in a beautiful presentation. Our dessert was a gorgeous flan topped with whipped edam cheese --- so light and fluffy. What a masterful meal never to be forgotten. Whatever Jacob finally settles on for the hotel's dinner menu is sure to be wonderful. By the way, our surroundings in the hotel dinning room were as colorful and tasty as our apertif.
Brilliant hotel, free wifi, great pool, perfect hosts, friendly and super helpful. Happy hour drinks each evening were much appreciated. Close to city, meant we walked everywhere. Handy to restaurants. Fantastic stay.
We spent 9 nights at Merida Santiago and were floored by the general appearance of the hotel, with it's clean lines, flowers and elegant courtyard, and especially by the warmth and knowledgeability of the owners and staff. They can suggest or arrange tours to ruins, cenotes, beaches, etc. if you decide to range outside of Merida.
The breakfasts are amazing; fresh fruit juices, fresh fruit, warm croissants and beautifully prepared takes on classic Mexican breakfasts. They also serve delicious dinners, and hold cooking classes. The room we stayed in, (#6) was large, immaculate and quiet, with a totally private terrace and a view of the gardens and pool. The hotel is on a quiet side street, but a short walk takes you in to the historic center of Merida, with restaurants, plazas, museums and shopping. I can't recommend the hotel and it's people highly enough!
We loved our stay at Merida Santiago Hotel. The room was lovely, very comfortable bed, great pool to cool off in after exploring Merida. Happy hour drinks were a really nice way to chat to the owners and the other guests. Breakfast was delicious. The hotel is really pretty and everything is immaculate. The staff were very helpful helping us sort our visit to Chichen Itza and our transfer to Tulum. We would love to go back and stay there sometime and would recommend to everyone.
It is a beautiful hotel with pool. There is a nice, family and calm atmosphere. The location is really great - in the city of center. The staf is helpful and the cook is amazing. I recommend this place.
