Wonderful family stay!

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely 4-day stay at Villa Sarteneja. We loved the house, the pool, the patio area, everything! Our two kids (ages 10 and 7) especially loved the pool. The kitchen was nicely stocked with utensils, pots/pans, real knives, etc. The wifi worked very well. It's a quick walk to the Plaza and to shops and restaurants. It's also very convenient to the ADO CAME bus station (about 2 blocks), which was great for us because we came from Playa del Carmen and then were going on to Isla Mujeres after Merida. The proximity to the bus station helped us decide to forgo a rental car, and we thereby saved significant funds. As others have said, Agustin was very helpful when we arrived. Given our relatively short stay, we didn't need to call on him while we were there. If we return to Merida, we'll definitely try to stay at Villa Sarteneja again.

Wonderful Villa

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this Villa while we were visiting Merida to attend our niece's wedding. It is everything that it states it is and the pictures are exactly what you will find. Agustin, the property manager was there waiting for us when we arrived. He showed us around the Villa explaining everything, giving us a cell phone to use locally, maps and info about the area and places to eat. We had rented a car and he had put cones out in front to reserve a parking place for us. The Villa was a delight from comfortable beds, to a great kitchen and the pool area was our favorite place to hangout. The pool was a wonderful treat to cool us off throughout the day. We really enjoyed early morning swims to late night dips in the pool. The location was perfect as we were only 2 blocks from the church that the wedding was held. But what we enjoyed most was walking over to the Grand Plaza or the park area to eat at one of the many restaurants. Debra and John were so easy to work with, with fast replies to our emails and very quick return of our deposit. Our time at this Villa was so delightful and we highly recommend it.

Another Great Stay At Villa Sarteneja

  • 5 of 5
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.

Great Place to Stay in Merida

  • 5 of 5
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

  • 5 of 5
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.

Perfect Base for Exploring Historic Merida

  • 5 of 5
Agustin, the property manager, was waiting for us after our late night arrival from Houston. He explained the features of the home, gave us a cell phone to get ahold of him and left information about restaurants, sites and a small map. The bed was comfortable and we slept well. The traffic noise begins around 7:00am but we were up by then. The pool was in full sun from noon till 4:00pm, perfect after spending the morning site-seeing and having lunch. The courtyard is entirely enclosed but still caught the breezes. The social club behind on the next block was practicing one day and we were serenaded to the music of John Phillip Sousa coming over the walls! We felt safe even late at night walking back from the restaurants. The Grand Plaza is within easy walking distance, the restaurants on Calle 59 are 4 blocks away. Park San Juan with one of the original gates to the city is around the corner. The Merida English Library is 7 blocks away. Paseo Montejo is a long walk away but if you are walkers, no problem. Taxis are plentiful and inexpensive, the most we paid was 50 pesos (late at night), most rides were 20 to 30 pesos ($2 to $3 US). We usually walked in the morning, staying on the shady side of the streets and took a taxi back during the heat of the day. We had only one issue with the hot water being clogged due to the lime scale in the area's water and Agustin had a plumber there immediately after we contacted him. Like Florida or any other tropical area, you have to be careful of food storage as ants are in abundance. Overall, the property is a good value and a good place for 1st timers to Merida.

On weekends, visitors can try salsa dancing or enjoy their dinner and music right on the streets, where some areas of El Centro are blocked off from local traffic. For the romantics, there are horse and buggy rides down the beautiful and historic Paseo Montejo, or for those who choose to enjoy the sights on their own steam, bicycle rentals. Merida has excellent restaurants, theatres, museums, and art galleries, all within walking distance in El Centro.

Merida is located just 30 kilometers south of the Gulf Coast. Day trips are easily possible both to the Yucatan Gulf Coast or into the center of the Yucatan Peninsula to explore other colonial cities, cenotes or ancient Mayan ruins.
