Casa Mexilio is an amazing colonial mansion that's been transformed into a serious of guest rooms (all thematic..such as "Frida Kahlo" room) and stairs, pathways, nooks , crannies. I have stayed there two times...a couple of years apart. The first time, the place was full, and breakfast was served on the patio roof. Cooked to order Yucatecan breakfast. The rooms and public areas are filled with antiques, historical artifacts and interesting objects. The pool is teensy but charming..it was dug into the center patio and covered in vines, plants, and very little sunlight- making it refreshing on hot, humid Merida days. If you speak Spanish, the guys are incredibly filled with Mexican colonial history knowledge . The next time I was there, it was during the swine flu scare, and no one was there. Therefore, they gave us vouchers to a local Merida breakfast institution, because it wasn't worth them lugging all the food up for flights of stairs for two of us.The rooms and furnishings are amazing- many have lofts built into them which are so quirky. The guys are very helpful recommending local historical restaurants, arqueologia sites, stores, hammock factories (great deals) etc. Definitely unique but not for the visitor who doesn't like to engage with fellow travelers.
