Historical Traveler Reviews Casa Sacnicte Bed and Breakfast Merida
Lovely little hotel
Casa Sac Nicte is a lovely and relatively new hotel in Merida. We were recommended it by the owners of Posada Luna del Sur in Tulum and were not disappointed.
While the rooms are simple (no TV, fridge) they are kept very clean and nicely decorated (in fact the whole hotel has a great feel about it and has been decorated beautifully).
While we were there it was very quiet and relaxing, while everything we wanted to see in town was walking distance (make sure you go on Sunday nights to see the music and dancing in the town square...its amazing!).
A good breakfast is included in the room rate which is an absolute bargain (I think it was $35USD a night?).
I would certainly stay at the Casa sac Nicte if I was looking for budget to mid-range accommodation in Merida.
Friendly and Quiet
We visited Merida for 2 nights (Jan '07). Wilbert and Guadalupe were very friendly - making our room availible for a very early check-in and providing a delicious breakfast of fresh fruit, coffee and breads. Casa Sacnicte is a comfortable, clean and quiet respite from the sometimes hectic streets of Merida.
As uninformed travelers, we had a great stay in Merida at Casa Sacnicte. Our host family was extremely gracious and helpful in arranging tours, taxies or helping us exchange dollars for Pesos. Our room and bathroom were spotless . The breakfast was great, and the location enabled us to walk to the main attractions in Merida. The courtyard , gardens, and uniqueness of the home provided opportunities for restful times. This is indeed a great host family. We returned home with a desire to again visit Merida and Casa Sacnicte.
Good find in Merida!
Good find in Merida! The property is new and wonderfully decorated. The owners have lived in the United States and speak very good English. They are very helpful, the price is a good value, and the breakfast (which is included) consists of coffee, bread, Mexican bread, fresh fruits, and freshly squeezed orange juice, And there is free internet connection!
Great place, clean rooms and the best hospitality.
This is a wonderfull B&B located just 2 blocks from the main square. The rooms were very clean and have airconditioning, a television and a ceiling fan. The people that run this place are very charismatic and brought breakast to our room when we were feeling under the weather. Highly recommended!
A gem in Merida
We just came back from Yucatan (Jan 07) and spent three nights in this lovely B&B, which we highly recommend.
It's in an old colonial house, nicely renovated keeping the original style, with a beautiful patio and warm colors. The location is great, really close to the center, yet not in the most touristy area.
Our room faced the patio, it was large and comfortable, nicely decorated, had a fan, AC and cable TV. The bathroom was brand new and extremely clean, and so was the room (it was nice to be in a clean place after staying in more expensive hotels where hygiene was so and so....).
The place felt like home, the owner was very hospitable, always ready to help and chat if you wanted. He also let us park our rented car in the garage for free.
They have a fast internet connection, and the breakfast was delicious and generous!
Since we didn't have a reservation we checked out several hotels when we got to Merida, and I'm really glad we eventually found Casa Nicte, clean, beautiful, and very affordable!
This week we stayed in this Bed and Breakfast for a few days. The room had a nice warm atmosphere, eveything was perfectly clean and all the things were working. The price was 430 pesos a night incl. breakfast.
Breakfast was delightful (freshly made fruit, coffee, tea, orange juice, yoghurt, toast, sweet buns, actually too much if you all like it!).
The owner pays attention to you and he is a very warm positive man.
It's only five minutes walk from downtown.
We recommend this B&B enormously!

Wonderful ambiance and great hosts. Our room was very clean and spacious with a nice balcony. The garden was delightful. Easy walking distance to downtown. Our hosts were wonderful, warm, knowledgable and made us feel right at home. I would recommend this place to anyone!
The best out of eight.
I visited Mexico a few weeks ago, traveled with my best friend for eighteen days troughout the south. We visited Mexico City, San Cristobal de las Casas, Palenque, Merida and Playa, Tulum and many more, and were enchanted with the culture, we are both from Monterrey but I reside in Texas. It is just another world, but of all the wonderfull places that we visited I must say that the best place where we stayed was Casa Sac Nicte. It was raining so hard and we thought we had reservations at this hostel, we showed up late at night and were told that sorry but no reservations were made (many of us have had that horrible experience). The receptionist told us to go across the steet and we did, when we walked in, my first thought: "this is going to be a little expensive for us, we still had to travel for anothe 13 days and were in a budget. To our surprise was only $35. The house is beautifull, the colors are bright and the rooms: two big great beds, we were able to sleep like babies. Air conditioner, fan, clean, clean, clean. The bathroom clean, hot water (the best shower of the trip, not even in Playa at a hotel tops it). Breakfast included, they have it ready for you at the time you request, a good portion of fruit (papaya, MANGO, etc), sweet Mexican bread, toast, orange juice, coffee and even yogurt; have to say the best breakfast of the trip.. Did I mention clean, not that other places were dirty but this place is just great. But I have to say the best, best of this place was the service, the guys were very helpful to us, they advised where to go and what to eat, well they even took us to the restaurant because it was raining. Muchas gracias chicos. I will have to say we were treated great and got way much more than $35 is worth. I strongly recomend for anybody to stay, you will love it.
My wife and I recently spent a few days in Merida at the Casa Sacnicte B&B. This B&B is absolutely awesome. We paid $35 US for the room and it is an absolute steal. The B & B is a newly renovated family colonial home near the center of Merida. The rooms are absolutely charming, exceptionally clean, and the atmosphere of this small quaint B & B is fabulous. Roy and Guadalupe were very welcoming to us and helpful as they could be. When we first made our reservations, we were a bit skeptical that something at this price could be a great place to stay, but we were absolutely astonished. This is surely the best bargain for quality in Merida. When I am in Merida again, I will stay here.

... Italian restaurant while walking one day so thought we'd give that a shot. Walked to it and checked the menu but found it rather expensive. There was another one a few blocks more so walked to that one. It's called Faces and full of grey haired Canadians and Americans. It was Happy Hour so what could be more inviting than that. We sat down and ordered up some cervesa and listened to the band. It was 3 Canadian or American retiree's ...
... especially, but all over, really, the poverty is highly, disconcertingly apparent. From the women who come to town from the Mayan villages every day, babies in tow, to spend all day selling trinkets, to the children begging for change or food, it's hard to see and it's even harder to turn away from. Of course, there are lots of wealthy people in Mexico, too, and I'd say Mexican tourists outnumber foreigners at most of ...
... court. At 168m in length, this is the largest ballcourt in Mesoamerica. Still in place are the two engraved rings that the ball had to pass through. The losing players would not have escaped with their heads. The games are depicted in carvings on the walls. Our guide left us here and we had some free time so walked down to the Temple of the Warriors for a photo. Set on a small pyramid, this temple is decorated with sculptures of the rain god Chac and the plumed ...
... like. Our guide gave us a fascinating tour including telling us about their version of football in which the captain of the winning team would be offered as a sacrifice. Some incentive to play! All of the Mayan buildings were intricately thought out- the amount of steps and platforms all referred to important numbers in the calendar and the design was such that come the equinox the sun would create a shadow of a serpent on the temple (a very important god- Kukulkan). I'd ...
