The Wyndham Hotel Merida in the Yucatan Peninsula Mexico is a 5-star luxury hotel with a history.
Merida in Mexico is famous for its colonial mansions, stunning architecture, local cuisine and its location close to the Mayan temples.
Outside of Mexico City and Havana Cuba, Merida rates 3rd in the number of colonial mansions in Latin America.
Our extended family group of seven enjoyed excellent service and quiet comfort here. As some had stayed near the Grande Plaza in a previous trip and found it to be noisy we were all thrilled with this quiet residential neighbourhood which was still an easy walk to Paseo Montejo shops and sights.
Consuelo García, the concierge, worked with our group ahead of our trip to arrange an itinerary and transportation for special events in town as well as day trips out of the city and was remarkably patient, knowledgeable and professional. The entire staff was friendly, responsive and made our trip very enjoyable.

The Wyndham Merida was constructed in 1912 originally as a family mansion. Over time it was converted into a hotel. The restaurant, bar and spa belong to the original antique colonial mansion. Yucatecan artisans working in local wood and stone have restored this colonial mansion beautifully. The old and new combine to create a welcoming luxurious hotel of 100 rooms, bar and restaurant.

Our bathroom was spacious with Lavarino Cossio toiletries: moisturiser, shower gel, shampoo, conditioner.
Colourful local artwork decorated the bedroom walls.
It was hard to get out of bed in the morning with its luxurious cotton sheets and many pillows. The coffee helped from the Wolfgang Puck Coffee Machine. We were really impressed with the quality and the temperature of the coffee that this little machine produced.
Check-In was handled very smoothly. Normally check-in is at 3 pm but our room was ready for us. We had the warmest welcome from the Bell Boy on arrival and he was a wealth of information on local tourist attractions.
During Our Stay
Every morning as we left the hotel and on our return, we were greeted and enquiries made of us on how our day was by staff at the door and at Reception as we walked by.
The Concierge was extremely helpful with local maps and guidance on how to travel into Centro Historico easily.
Our request for the printing of our travel documents was handled quickly and efficiently.
During the day near Reception fruit flavoured water was available as well as an assortment of fruit and pastries.
We had an early departure and our check out was handled efficiently by the Reception Staff.
