Excelent location, a bit run down

The hotel is located a block away from Merida's central square and next to a quaint little plaza. It is a bit run down (although it seems like it is undergoing some rennovation works at the moment). The rooms are very basic, but they are clean. Breakfast was just about ok, there isn't much variety.

Been going to Caribe for years

I have used Hotel Caribe for years because I love the staff, the room is clean and airconditioned. You cannot beat the location. The last year I have been renovating a property in Merida and I stay at Hotel Caribe for a week at a time. The staff takes care of me like one of there own. Wifi is free but spotty, but you can get it somewhere in hotel. Its not a luxury hotel but a very good vaue. Many good restaurants close by. Looking forward to going again.

Great location and building

The hotel is in a really pretty historic building and right in the historic center of town. The rooftop swimming pool is a great spot to end a warm day and watch the sun set over the cathedral. Kids loved the pool. The rooms have minimal comfort but we got a really good rate. The bar and restaurant are not great but there is a lot of choice nearby, although mainly tourist places.

Great Location, beware of parking fees.

The hotel is perfect to go visit Merida as is close to everything by foot. The room is clean enough and the beds are ok. It is perfect to be in Merida as you would loose a lot by just "staying" in the hotel. Beware of parking fees, the hotel only provides parking from 7pm to 7am, making the cost per day rise significantly as parking in Merida is expensive.

Good hotel in great location

While the hotel has a somewhat run-down feel, the room was clean & comfortable, albeit simple. Excellent location & beautiful roof terrace with a great view of the Merida Cathedral!

Worth while

Perfectly situated and charming hotel. Very quiet in spite of being at the center of a very lively part of town. We had two rooms. One was fine, simple and very clean. Other was simple and clean but hot water was spotty and water pressure was minimal. No wifi in rooms. Mosquitos were an annoyance for Merida in general and for the hotel and our rooms in particular. That said we'd stay there again...the excellent location makes up for minor inconvenience - and we liked Merida very much.

Excellent location

Great location at the center of Merida, however it lacks a parking lot and a bigger pool. It could use some paint but the location is the best since you are located within walking distance of every major landmark downtown.
