The 13 best hotels in Merida Mexico for luxury and mid-range budgets

Excited about your trip to Merida? I am sure you are, but to make your trip even more perfect you should find the perfect place to stay as well. And if you are picky about hotels like I am and you wish to stay in one of the most charming hotels in Merida this post is for you. I have selected the cutest places that celebrate the gorgeous colonial architecture combined with the most modern amenities and, of course, comfort.


Merida is a cultural hub for the Mayan heritage, and its historical center is an open-air museum.

Merida receives many tourists because of its amazingly diverse architecture, its art, and delicious Yucatecan food.

In fact, away from the almost exclusively touristy cities like Cancun and Tulum, Merida offers a great number of authentic Mexican attractions—earning the title of the Cultural Capital of the Americas.

Being one of the most exotic cities in Mexico, and a refreshing break from the countless beach towns, there are quite a bit of interesting things to do in Merida and its surroundings.

This authentic vibe of Merida is made even better with amazing museums, top-notch bars, day trips to Mayan ruins, and great beaches just half an hour away, cenotes, historic haciendas turned into some of the best hotels, and a lot of Mayan culture along with the international and, most of all, Mexican cuisine.

Staying in a hotel that is in line with the authentic Yucatecan atmosphere makes your trip even more incredible. This is why I put together a list of hotels that suit the purpose.

But before moving on with the list of the best hotels in Merida, let’s find out which is the best area to stay in Merida.

In fact, although Merida is one of the safest places in Mexico, some of the neighborhoods are indeed not recommendable while others are your best option. Let’s find out which ones.

Merida Mexico Paseo Montejo

The best area to stay in Merida

The best area to stay in Merida is hands down its downtown area, but only the historic center and Paseo Montejo areas there let you experience what it’s like to lodge in the best hotels of Merida. So, I’ll only tell you about Merida hotels from these two areas, and you can choose your pick for the one that best suits you and your budget.

The Historical Center of Merida (or Centro) is one of the most lively areas of the city. Its main square overlooks the Merida Cathedral, and there are tons of restaurants, museums, and historic monuments within the area (hence the name).

Merida Plaza Mexico

Just a short distance from the Centro, Paseo Montejo is another popular area of Merida, famous for its stunning architecture, historic buildings, and breathtaking beauty.

The avenue is named after Francisco de Montejo, the Spanish conquistador who founded Merida city. It was created mimicking the Champs Elisee, to reflect the economic success of the city back in the 1880s, and some grand structures from that period are now open as luxurious boutique hotels or luxurious private mansions.

Besides staying there, walking around and visiting these areas are definitely some of the things to do in Merida during your trip.

The outside veranda of this restaurant is worth having lunch or dinner in, because the ambiance there is just superb. The bar and outside seating overlooking the hotel’s gardens are also pretty nice. The prices for its à la carte menu are very affordable and pack the best value, considering how amazing the food is.

Hacienda Xcanatun also boasts two large outdoor pools, which are almost never crowded, so you will probably have them to yourself during your stay here.

Since the hotel is surrounded by breathtaking nature, a swim in one of these pools is highly recommended—you will feel immersed in authentic Yucatán vibes.

There are a variety of other things that make Hacienda Xcanatun stand out. These include the cooking classes, yoga sessions, the free guided tour, walking tours, sun terrace, live music, and the well-known spa center.  The spa offers world-class wellness treatments, which I definitely recommend trying out.
