A huge thank you to Rita, Jan, receptionist Ana, chefs William and Luis, and all the other staff here. I had a fantastic six nights. The hotel is the most welcoming and friendly I've ever stayed at. I booked very late so stayed in three different rooms: each was immaculately clean, peaceful and cool (necessary in 40 degree heat). The...

Our stay at this 6 room boutique hotel so over-delivered on expectations, it is hard to know where to begin. From check-in to check-out everything was outstanding – location a short walk to the main square, quiet street, impeccably clean, beautiful rooms, cocktails and an innovative delicious snack every evening as well as arming you with water every time you...

Beautiful, quaint little place. Staff couldn't have been nicer and more helpful after we checked in at 11pm. Great recommendations on what to do, where to eat and tour/travel options. Thank you for having us!

Wonderfully welcoming and friendly boutique hotel tucked away just off centre of town. Delicious breakfast. Great ice breaker with other guests having a drink and a snack in the early evening. while the hotel is small and precious, the rooms are spacious, modern and comfortable. We had been looking forward to eating at the hotel, but the chef had had...

My 12-year-old daughter and I stayed at this hotel for 5 nights in March 2017 and both enjoyed our stay. The owners, Rita and Jan, are lovely people who made us feel very welcome. Jan was there to greet us in the main reception when we arrived at 10.30pm and was also up to say goodbye at 5am on the...

Possibly the best hotel of its type we have ever stayed in, and certainly the best hotel during our month long travels around Mexico. The hotel and gardens are beautiful and there is so much care and attention to detail everywhere. It is such a special touch to offer a complimentary early evening drink of (really nice) white wine or...

We were really impressed by this place, in fact it is probably the best small hotel we have ever stayed in. The welcome was outstanding (easily the best during our stay in Mexico), the design and decor very attractive, the bedroom comfortable and large with great bathroom and the food was excellent. We really liked the complimentary drinks in the...

Last January in visit to Merida - Yucatan - Mexico, we had very nice days at the Merida Santiago hotel. A very cozy boutique hotel, with great location, suits well furnished and decorated. But the differential is the reception and attention given by the owners Rita and Ian and the staff. Do not miss the happy hour offered by them....

We stayed at this hotel thanks to the good Tripadvisor reviews and were not disappointed, it was great! From the outside the hotel seems very small and a bit old but once you cross the door you find a different world inside. A stunning common area with a beautiful pool, colourful houses and big modern rooms. Everything we could have...

To repeat the previous reviewer's title - "fantastic and relaxing". Everything about this hotel/b&b is perfect. Jan and Rita are great hosts and are always more than willing to give ideas on what to do in Merida and the surrounding area. Also, both are very interesting, with business backgrounds and experience in Holland and Merida. The rooms were excellent -...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Merida Santiago is a relaxed Yucateca colonial style hotel located in the historic center of Merida. It's walking distance from Merida's main attractions: the central market square (990 m), the zoo (800 m), Palacio del Gobierno (990 m), the old market Lucas Galvez, Paseo de Montejo and much more. Hotel Merida Santiago has six luxurious and spacious suites, each with its own character. Five suites offer comfortable king sized beds and the sixth suite has two queen size beds. All come with refrigerators and valuables safe. Large en suite bathrooms feature double sinks and walk-in rain showers. Two suites have Jacuzzi tubs with hydro jet massage. Massage is available on request. The central courtyard offers guests a place to relax, eat, drink and swim. It's an excellent place to escape Merida's tropical heat. The bar is fully stocked and the pool is open 24 hours a day. We serve a full Yucatecan style breakfast and a vegetarian version is available as well. At night there is a social time in which guests are encouraged to try free local drinks and botanas. ... more   less
