Casa Azul Review

Declared a historical monument and Yucatán Heritage sight in 1982, this French-style "Blue House" has extraordinary antiques, luxurious fabrics, rose-filled bouquets, and superior service, making every guest feel like royalty. The experience begins with a cordial greeting by one of three daughters who have helped restore the casa (which had been abandoned for 25 years) as a family project with their parents. Surrounding an inner courtyard, rooms named after Mérida neighborhoods are individually decorated and equipped with modern technology like iPod docs, plasma TVs, Wi-Fi, and minibars. Not a single detail has been overlooked—from the fine china used at breakfast and the personalized leather journal left in the rooms for every guest (or couple) to the flower petals in the Jacuzzi and the umbrella and sun hat waiting in each room. The beds are outstanding with thick mattresses and soft duvets that encase your body for the perfect night of sleep. Included in the rate are airport transportation and breakfast à la carte offering such delights as homemade pastries, French toast, and eggs Benedict.
