We enjoyed a tranquil and cozy sanctuary in the capital of Yucatan.
El Ave Blanca was exactly as advertised and a bit more. The rooms were spacious with comfy queen sized beds, full baths and air-conditioning. We wanted to stay at a place where we could relax and feel at home. At the agreed upon time, breakfast was served promptly; however, we were not always so prompt, but the aroma of the freshly ground coffee from Chiapas lured us in for a tasty meal.
Kathleen was always patient and kind listening to our stories and jokes. She was very gracious, listened and laughed at the proper times. She allowed us to unwind from the stresses of life back home and relax in her B&B. Kathleen treated us like old friends and made our stay memorable and enjoyable.
As one can see from the date of our visit we arrived during the rainy season of early June. We did not know what to expect from the weather. Kathleen advised us to pack our light sports jackets, hats and light weight ponchos just in case. She helped us arrange and plan our touristic forays into the various Mayan sites, making our visit comfortable and easygoing, as I had dreaded trying to make all of the arrangements myself with my schoolboy Spanish.
All in all we would warmly recommend this peaceful micro-hacienda in the middle of Merida to all who wish to have a relaxed and carefree time in a great location.
