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 might be the ideal choice for guests envisioning themselves relaxing poolside. Hanging out by the pool is just what the doctor ordered following a full day exploring the area.

Situated near the heart of Merida, Casa del Balam is a great choice for visitors who are interested in basing their vacation in this part of the city or an adjacent neighborhood.


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.

Considering its overall quality, we have awarded this hotel a rating of three and a half stars.
