The Diplomat Boutique Hotel, Merida
Perfect oasis in historic centro
I can't recommend The Diplomat highly enough! Once you walk through the grand front door, you'll discover a lush oasis just blocks from the historic city center. The rooms were clean, bright and charming and no details were overlooked in the hotel's recent renovation. The owners, Sara and Neil, were wonderful hosts who welcomed us warmly and were excited to share their love for the area. Sara's daily homemade breakfasts and baked goods were a highlight, as was returning after a long day to Neil's (generous) margaritas by the beautiful pool. They recommended excellent restaurants and gladly helped us plan tours, sights to see and even the rest of our stay in the Yucatan after we checked out. Their suggestions and local tips (don't miss the little blue map booklet they have at check-in) truly made our first visit to Merida so much better. Don't think twice about booking this gem - we'll definitely be back!

A true gem and a must stay...
Highly recommended and you need not look any further than the Diplomat.... Although I often read other travellers’ opinions prior to booking, I rarely write a review. This review is an exception as it truly is THE place to stay while in Merida, from the comfort of the rooms, to the absolute 6 star service! The owners make the experience so personal that you feel you are part of their extended family. They have a wealth of knowledge of the area and the breakfasts, wow, the breakfast raises the bar to a new level! For those, like myself, who get carried away researching where they stay, I suggest you just book the Diplomat with confidence and concentrate on enjoying the many experiences Merida has to offer. A true gem. My wife and I look forward to our return ....

Gorgeous hotel and hosts
We drove here in a hire car, using a satnav. I was a little concerned we had taken a wrong turn as the neighbourhood looks a little run down. However, we found the hotel, parked up and were greeted by Neil who led us into an oasis of calm and luxury. This tiny little boutique hotel only has 4 suites so book early to avoid disappointment; you won't regret it. It really is gorgeous, impeccably designed and furnished, and supremely comfortable. Sara and Neil went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable, from the welcome drinks and snacks when we arrived to giving us recommendations for our (brief) time in Merida and booking us a table at their favourite restaurant. We had to leave early the next morning and were fully expecting to miss breakfast, but Sara got up early especially to make us coffee and delicious breakfast burritos! Amazing hospitality. Our only regret was that we only stayed one night, but we will definitely return. Thanks Sara & Neil, amazing hosts and beautiful hotel.
