The Flycatcher Inn B&B Boutique Hotel Uxmal
Ranked #2 of 2 Santa Elena B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 April 2011

I can't imagine a more comfortable and relaxing place to stay anywhere in this part of the Yucatan. Our family stayed for 2 nights in April while visiting Uxmal and some of the other sites nearby, and we couldn't have had a better stay. The entire property, on the edge of the village of Santa Elena, is walled and gated and gives you the sense of entering Shagri-La when driving into it. Wonderful landscaping, a forest of tall shady trees, fountains, lots of flowers and color, many different kinds of birds, and overall extremely tranquil. Our rooms were detached from the reception / breakfast area, very tastefully decorated, beds were firm and comfortable, and everything was immaculately clean. The breakfasts were wonderful and were served out on the patio. Given all of this, I must say the best aspect of this place is the hospitality and service of the staff and owners, Kristine and Santiago. They are wonderful and extremely helpful hosts. I had communicated quite a bit with Kristine via email prior to arriving (she always responded very quickly to my questions and/or requests) and in addition to seeing Uxmal (which is fantastic) we had also arranged for a half day "tour" of some of the local area with Santiago (Loltun caves, Labna, Kabah) which I would highly recommend if your schedule allows it. Finally, you can catch the bus to Uxmal or other local destinations from a spot only about 100 meters or so from their front gate. Overall I believe the Flycatcher is a better choice than staying right at the Uxmal ruins.

We stayed for one night en route to Uxmal. The grounds are lovely, the room was beautiful, and the service was charming. We ate dinner across the road at the Chac Mool Motel. Good dinner. Unusual experience.

The Flycatcher Inn is a lovely off the beaten path B&B. Friendly, beautiful and located beside a real Mexican village with no tourist traps. A great place to stay while visiting Uxmal which was our favourite Mayan site of the 8 that we visited. Rosa is a delightful manager. Christine a very helpful host. We regretted that we only had a chance to say hello to Santiago - would have liked to talk to him. Breakfast on the beautiful porch still lingers in my mind. We enjoyed the trails on the property. Gorgeous and comfortable hammock. Great bed.

We spent 3 nights here as our base. We had a comfortable, roomy and clean cottage surrounded by trees. We relished waking up to the sounds of birds. Delicious breakfasts were served on the veranda.
It was easy to catch a bus to the Uxmal ruins which are great to see. Santiago took us to 4 sites on the Ruta Puuc which we really enjoyed and he helped us learn about them and the area. Both he and Kristine are very knowledgable, enthusiastic and helpful.
The village of Santa Elena is interesting to wander and the Chac Mul restaurant nearby has good food and the best Jamaica water we had.

We were lucky to find a room here for 2 nights at very short notice..........a true serendipity. Beautiful quiet surroundings, charming and helpful hosts, lovely gardens, excellent breakfast, and even a chance to share a meal arranged for some guests who were leaving. Perfect for visiting Uxmal and we wished we had longer to stay here. Highly recommended and thanks to Christine and Santiago and Rosa
