Mansion Merida on the Park
An elegantly restored 14th century belle-époque French mansion near the main plaza of colonial Mérida.
This hotel occupies an elegantly restored 14th century belle-époque French mansion which truly reflects the architectural grandeur of the period. Although grand in style and size, there are only 14 suites, spacious and tastefully decorated with beautiful, tiled floors and Louis XIX style furniture.
The property is located just a few minutes’ walk from the main square and close to many traditional cafés and restaurants. You’ll find many hotels of the same style throughout the Yucatán but this hotel is unique for its size and location within the city itself. The opulence and luxury of this property is further enhanced by its facilities, which include an outdoor swimming pool, a gym and spa.
What our clients say
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: The live music in Merida, Izmal, Edzna and Campeche.JS Winscombe
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 enjoyableAD, Reading
Most memorable experience: “Difficult to single out any particular aspect. The holiday was an excellent blend of history and culture, along with a final day to relax on the coast. We had time to explore on our own (important in the case of Chichen Itza where the timing of the guided tour on our arrival meant we were part of a vast circus of visitors).SR Borehamwood
Most memorable experience?: It's impossible to pick any individual aspect; but a number of experiences stood out: the visit to the "voodoo" church at St Juan Chamula (extraordinary and unexpected), the visit to the shrine of the Madonna of Guadalupe on the way to Teotihuacan in Mexico City (similar, and helped understand Mexican history), Palenque (the most beautiful and atmospheric of the pre-hispanic sites), and swimming in the three cenotes at Cuzama near Merida, which we arranged ourselves.AR Gospel Oak
Highlights: San Cristobal was lovely. Chichen Itza was very impressive. Merida was fun in the evenings.AC, West Byfleet
Our expert's view
Hannah Waterhouse - Travel Expert
Hannah had an early introduction to Latin America when her family moved to Ecuador and she returned to study in Buenos Aires for a year before backpacking across the continent.
This is a really lovely option for a stay in Merida – close enough to the town’s historic centre but on a quiet street where you can relax in the beautiful courtyard pool after a day’s sightseeing. The food here is excellent too.
