Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Dolores Alba Merida
Very rude owner
We stayed in hotel Dolores, the price they gave us was 440 peso per night which was higher than the internate rate and they do not accept credit card. The room and the pool were ok, the breakfast was not too good, my husband and son got diaria after eating the breakfast and they had to stay in the hotel for the whole day. The staff were nice except the old woman who is the owner, she was very rude and cold. We booked a tour through the hotel and paid cash. When I asked for a receipt she refused and said "We never gave out receipt."
I spent a week at Dolores Alba. The bill (for 7 nights, 6 breakfasts, and 1 lunch) came to a whopping $274 USD. Everything - staff, pool, room/bathroom, and security - were great and I will not only stay there again - but will also recommend it to anyone headed in that direction.
Best bargain i had in years
we found it clean quiet and easy access to shopping and resturants staff was excellent
Best in the area
I stayed at the sister hotel that is located about ten-minutes, by car, from Chichen Itza. They have expanded the hotel over the last few tears. I found the rooms were very comfortable and clean. The dining area is an open patio with a local Palapa style roof and the food was excellent. They have added a new swimming pool with a natural limestone floor that was very refreshing after a day of hiking through the local ruins. I stayed at the Delores Alba for a total of seven days and I thought that the $33.00 U.S. I paid per night was well spent.
Good and reasonably priced
A very good hotel for a reasonable tariff. Dolores Alba has all you need: A/C, clean bathrooms, large rooms, a good swimming pool. All that for 39USD, a good bargain.
I really liked this hotel
We stayed at the Dolores Alba and found it to be quite nice. Clean, Quiet and a nice pool. The breakfast was okay, coffee cold sometimes, but still very worth the $. It was about 5 blocks off the main area which was not too far except for the heavy traffic fumes along the way.
The best hotel in Merida for under $40
Dolores Alba is great. The hotel staff is very friendly. Most speak great English. You can make reservations on-line and they are quick to confirm by e-mail. Very clean rooms and common areas. Individual AC in the newer rooms. A great pool. It's a little oasis in the heart of merida. Authentic breakfast with eggs, sweet break, fruit and coffee for $4. I've stayed there 3 times with groups of up to 18 and everyone has loved it. The only down side is that it's about 1/2 mile walk to the city center. If you can handle the walking it's a great place to stay.
Great hotel - interesting area
We stayed at the Delores Alba hotel (Calle 63,
no. 464) in February 2002. What a find - very unimpressive from the street, but once inside it's lovely - a beautiful courtyard and pool with many local plantings and flowers. Our room was large and beautifully appointed with a balcony overlook-
ing the gardens and pool. It was located within easy walking distance of the Plaza Mayor. The family owners also own a hotel near Chichén-Itzá. They were very helpful with maps of the area and attractions etc. Cost under $35 for a double.
Mèrida has a colonial flavor and is very clean and safe. We took the city tour (which is offered by open bus or carriage ride) that included the highlights of the city and many residential neighborhoods.
Loved the Delores Alba
We absolutely loved the Delores Alba! We stayed there for a week, it was located so that you could easily walk to the center of town or to many restaurants. The pool was very nice, they served some meals, we ate breakfast there each day. The rate was far lower then one would expect for the accomidations. The room was large, very bright and clean. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We will definitely stay there when we are in Merida again. The outside was nothing, we were a bit worried when we were dropped off by the taxi, but the moment we stepped thru the door we fell in love. We came to the Delores Alba in Merida because we had stayed several times at her sister hotel at Chichen Itza and loved it.
Nice place, clean, reasonable rates (35 euros), 4 blocks for the heart of Merida. My two sons loved the swimming pool.

... of Merida and went to get some lunch. We ended up back at the cute little touristy place we'd had breakfast at the day before. They had a really good deal on for lunch, so we got a three course meal for 150 pesos (£6). Annoyingly, the waiter serving us was a bit of a dick. He took it upon himself to complain that we weren't tipping him enough, despite the fact that he was rather disinterested throughout the whole meal. It was rather awkward.
... from BC, to see what they have been doing. Heard about another market that's open Thursdays, a downtown cantina that has a Thursday happy hour all day and a few other assorted tips.
After suffering in the heat by the pool, tee hee hee, we bussed it into Progreso to get some chicharones. The market was closed so couldn't get any but found Thursday's Happy Hour bar. Had ...

Upon arriving at our hotel (or rather Hacienda) we were absolutely floored at the beauty of our location. Beautiful gardens and the rooms were stuff I could have only imagined in a dream. This ...
