I don't understand the high rating for this place. The ambience isn't great and the food was poor in general, made even worse by informing the staff (in spanish) that I am allergic to gluten, being informed there was no gluten in what I ordered and getting served gazpacho with croutons. I wouldn't recommend anyone with allergies to eat here. But in general the food wasn't great either. Chewy and not tasty.

Good day. In El Restaurante El mesón del Marqués, we are proud to say our cuisine tries to preserve the traditional Yucatecan food, which is why we have a hard time accommodating to a special menu. However, we find ourselves in constant evolution to improve the quality of our service and offer everyone a satisfactory experience. We are sorry our restaurant did not meet your expectations. Have a nice day.

Charming hotel, great rooms, picturesque restaurant surrounding a courtyard garden.

Central location with easy access to Casa de los Venados...the fantastic folk art private house in the centre of town.

Really fine dining of local specialities in a beautiful restaurant. A large cocktail, beer and spirits list. A lovely collection of Yucatan specialities. The lime soup was to die for.

Sadly we were lumped with a room overlooking the restaurant... Not that bad except the racket from the diners comes right into the room. As does the light.

My girlfriend was feeling a bit under the weather so I asked for a different room (and even offered to upgrade to move) but they were fully booked apparently.

I just wonder whether designing a room with windows that face out over a dining area and don't create a seal (and therefore let lots of noise in) is such a great idea. Obviously they want to get all the use of the space they have available but I feel this is one step too far.

Staff are friendly enough but to be honest I keep finding that smaller hotels / apartments are better quality than these mammoth ones that churn through hundreds of people a day.

Hello Dennis, first of all, we really appreciate your feedback so we can keep improving our service. The hotel recently underwent some remodeling in the rooms regarding the noise, this to keep our supply according to the touristic demand. It is true we want to use the space we have but we also want to preserve the quality and comfort. Kind Regards
