Casa del Balam

Casa del Balam

Casa del Balam, built in 1970, has a classic yet eclectic elegance. Parts of the hotel were originally the home of the Barbachano family, the owners, and as such the hotel incorporates art and antique furniture liberally throughout. The hotel is designed to make guests feel at home, and the staff and owners personally make this a reality.

With some nice facilities, Casa del Balam is an excellent fit for travelers looking to get a bit of sun. Taking a breather by the pool is just what the doctor ordered after an afternoon enjoying the area.

Located near the center of Merida, Casa del Balam offers a warm welcome to customers who are interested in basing their vacation in this part of the city or another nearby area.


Standard rooms have plenty of lighting and space. Some have a small balcony with a view of El Teatro Jose Peon Contreras.

The Master Suites were formerly part of where the Barbachanos, the owners, used to stay, and are located in the original section of the hotel. The rooms have been preserved over the years and still hold the family's original furniture.

The Honeymoon suites are intimate and have great views of the local university as well as 57th and 60th streets. These rooms come with a king bed, bathrobes, a coffeemaker, and bath salts.
