How to Get There
We booked a tour from this hotel to see the flamingoes at Celstun which is an hour from Merida and includes a boat trip to see the birds. All the tour operators charge 1000 pesos, ( £40) per passenger. When we got to Celestun the driver told us the fee didn’t include the boat trip. This is ridiculous as the only reason to go on the trip is to see the flamingoes and the mangrove swamps. We had to pay an extra 600 pesos, (£24) to go on the boat trip. This was a rip off by the hotel. On the way back the driver got very lost trying to take us to a beach resort. We complained to the manager but he refused to reimburse us. He offered us a free pizza instead...Don’t use this hotel tour operator.
This is a beautiful small traditional hotel right by the Plaza Grande and the Cathedral. Convenient and easy to walk everywhere. Food was very good too. We had a wonderful dinner, and the service was excellent. The kids loved having pizza. The ceviche was heavenly. The room was very clean and comfortable, though you should bring a multi-plug adapter, because outlets are in short supply. A/C is only in the rooms, but in April it was pleasant in all but the hottest part of the day. The pool is nice and shaded, and the children spent lots of time there. So many things to see nearby, and day trips from Merida are wonderful.
We only stayed two night but apart from being a beautiful colonial hotel with courtyard and a small pool, it’s right in the centre of town.
The highlight of our stay was Arturo. He is one of the most kind and helpful people. He really goes out of his way to make your stay comfortable and pleasant.
This is a clean and quaint boutique hotel in centro that attempts to be eco friendly but comes up short. Rates are reasonable, but some of the rooms are very small and cramped with tiny bathrooms and lacking even a small desk and chair. Others with two double beds are a little larger but windowless. All beds have wrap around mosquito netting that cannot be tied or stored and which quickly becomes an irritant. However, the main attraction is its location, just steps from the main plaza and the old church and a five minute walk from the main Mercado which is a must visit, particularly for a breakfast of Motulenos in one of the upper level restaurants. It is also close to several very good restaurants on the same street, especially Coyote Maya, one of the best restaurants to be found in centro.
Built in the 1850s as a mansion for a weathy family, the structure became the Piedra de Agua Hotel (I don't know when). Our room was on the second floor (American designation "second floor"), walk-up (no elevators). The first room was rather small; the staff switched us after a few days to a larger room in the rear of the hotel (same price!). Realize that the hotel is not modern; amenities are dated but work (well, the hot water was a bit iffy). Step outside and you're within a block of the main cathedral and the main plaza. Can't ask for a better location. The staff was extraordinary: friendly and helpful.
