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.
