El Palomar Room
Named for a terrace where the pigeons had their homes, before the space became a guest room. It's a new room, but is built with found and recycled architectural details from other times, from the French tiles brought from Marseille to the hacienda windows which have a story to tell. Above the room is a garden, profuse and green, and a lookout tower scans the western horizon.
A room with a view of the Colonial garden of Spanish tiles, balconies, iron railings, an ancient well, a balcony, and a distant view of Merida's cathedral -- from the third floor up in the arms of a sheltering caymito tree.
Sixty-six steps will get you to bed in this bi-level room reached through a circuitous route through the gardens. The en suite bath is a few steps higher than the main room. The bedding is TWO TWIN BEDS.
