Hotel Gran Real Yucatan is in a converted colonial mansion house with contemporary features. 

The striking hotel Gran Real Yucatán displays classic colonial elegance tempered with a light and airy contemporary touch. It is just steps away from the main cathedral and plaza in the historic downtown area of Mérida, capital of Mexico’s Yucatán province.

Much of the hotel building dates back to the 19th century when it was a family house owned by a wealthy businessman. The baroque style has been conserved with wide passages, high ceilings and antique columns, the latter surrounding the central patio. All the guest rooms have a small Juliet balcony with a view to either the pool or the garden.

The restaurant serves regional Yucatecan specialities as well as international cuisine and there’s a shop, business centre and medical service.

  • Highlights: San Cristobal was lovely.  Chichen Itza was very impressive.  Merida was fun in the evenings.  

    AC, West Byfleet
  • Enjoyed the fact that the cenotes we visited were far from the tourist circuit and had not been turned into themed experiences.

    SR, Borehamwood
  • Highlights:- We liked the variety of our trip -  ancient Mayan ruins, real Mexican towns and people, and beautiful beaches. It was wonderful to access Chichen Itza from the grounds of Mayaland Resort and get in there early and before it was too hot without any crowds. We loved swimming in Dzitnup Cenote.

    PR, Brentwood
  • Most memorable experience: We stayed in varied and interesting places and learnt a lot about Mayan culture. The day out to Bonampak and Yaxchilan was outstanding. However, we also arranged 2 bird watching activities for ourselves and 2 further excursions to archaeological sites which we enjoyed arranging on the ground. Having the free time to improvise in this way was enjoyable
