Two of us stayed 9 nights at Hotel Marionetas. The location could not be better. I am surprised anyone would think it isn't. It was 3 blocks to Santa Ana park, which has restaurants, shops, ice cream store, and much more surrounding the park. Another block and you are on Paseo Montejo. We walked to the main square in about 12 minutes. Santiago Park was also about 12 minutes. So we felt the location was very central to everything. If we had stayed at a place closer to the main square, then we would have been further from the other parks and Paseo Montejo. You can't be close to everything.
The rooms are clean and large. Water pressure was great, and the shower was also large. The bed was nice and firm, which I like. I guess if you like a soft bed, you wouldn't like this one. But I have stayed in too many places where the mattress was old and saggy, so I appreciated this one. I don't know from thread count, but the sheets were very nice.
They advertised a continental breakfast, so I wasn't surprised when that is what they served. (Read the website, people!) Staff was great. Very friendly and always asking if they could do anything for us. We had a safe in our room, so for someone to be robbed would seem to be their own fault. Would they leave money in their room in the U.S.?
Someone complained that it was a hot and sticky walk to places in Merida. Well, guess what? It's Mexico! The warm weather is part of the reason I went there. We jumped in the pool in the afternoon and it was refreshing.
I guess I'm just shocked that anyone could be upset with this place. As I said, we spent 9 whole days there and had a great time.
