Pleasant stay with great hospitality in Merida, Centro

  • 4 of 5

We just returned to Toronto from 3-month stay in Casa Venus. We're a retired couple. We were looking for place to

relax in new environment.So, what can I say? The description of property is true.The place has an authentic feel of

colonial house.Casa offers you a comfortable and private experience.

Our thanks go to wonderful hosts - Iona and JR, who did everything to make our stay enjoyable.Both of them were very friendly and helpful. All our needs (gas, water delivery, linens and towels change and so on) were looked after accurately. Iona and JR were so terrific, that they invited us to their other property "Hacienda San

Pedro Nohpat", near Merida.We spend a couple wonderful evenings in their warm company. Hacienda is a

beautiful place (see TripAdviser for details).

Authentic colonial Merida

  • 4 of 5

Merida is a colonial city at its heart and staying at Casa Venus adds to that flavor. The early 1900's tiling and layout is charming. The upstairs patio is open to the sun most of the day, making the jacuzzi quite delightful. But it is an old house, and that comes with some accomodations. Visitors should know that coming in. The location is great- it's straight down 59th St. to the Historic Center. Parking is ample by the house and there are many very inexpensive Estaciomentes (parking lots) on every block downtown.Iona and RJ are very accomdating, responding to every question promptly. Casa Venus was a lovely base for our 10 day visit to Meria and the surrounding sites.
