Another Great Stay At Villa Sarteneja

Review submitted: November 13, 2013   Date of arrival: September 27, 2013

Not only did we say we were going to go back to Merida but we actually did! This was our second stay at Villa Sarteneja this year. Because we had such a great time in April, we decided to stay there again for another 2 weeks. For us, it was a no-brainer. Debra & John have always been helpful via email. We already knew the house, which is well located, with everything close by. You are just around the corner from the park/square of St Juan with its shops and markets and about 10 min walk from the Gran Plaza. The pool was definitely a plus with us as you need to cool down a few times a day, and this is a pool long enough to swim in. The pool man is a nice guy and we practiced some of our (little) Spanish with him. Agustin, as always, was on hand when we needed him. We ate all our breakfasts on the terrace and drank freshly made smoothies on the sunloungers. My husband and I highly recommend Villa Sarteneja for your stay in the beautiful city of Merida.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, people with disabilities, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

Great Place to Stay in Merida

Review submitted: August 11, 2013   Date of arrival: July 5, 2013

Everything went smooth from the day we booked the place. Everything looks just like in the pictures. Agustin, the manager, was there when we arrived. He explained to us everything about the house, restaurants and places to go. Every time we needed him he was there to respond promptly. Debra, the owner has renovated fully this beautiful Villa. We couldn't think of a better place to stay in Merida. Don't miss to eat at La Casa de Frida. The best chile en nogada we had in this world (no spicy).

High standard of accommodation in a central locati

Review submitted: May 6, 2013   Date of arrival: April 18, 2013

Villa Sarteneja was perfect for our 2-week stay in Merida (the last 2 weeks of April). We were greeted by Agustin, the house manager, on our arrival by taxi, late in the evening. Fluent in English and extremely helpful, he explained everything to us about the house and the surroundings. Agustin was very responsive for any query and we were provided with a mobile phone. The house is just like on the photos: clean, tastefully decorated & furnished. The rooms are large and the ceilings high, and with the fans & air conditioning, we felt at ease in the heat, even at this time of year. The pool is just what you need after a few hours of visits and the patio is where we had our meals. It takes less than 10 min walk to reach the Gran Plaza with its shops and restaurants. Yes, you do have to be careful and not leave any food out because of ants, but it is a normal occurrence in the tropical climes. This was our second visit to Merida, so we already knew about these little critters.
All in all, such a great place that we shall try to stay there on our next visit.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway
