The Flycatcher Inn B&B Boutique Hotel Uxmal
Ranked #2 of 2 Santa Elena B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 November 2011

We recently spent two nights at the Flycatcher Inn during our trip through Yucatan. The hotel is located right in between the ruins of Uxmal and Kabah, and is a great base to explore the area. What makes the hotel unique however is the charm of the building and the hospitality of the hosts. The one small downside is the absence of drawers or any kind of a wardrobe in the rooms (could be OK for a few days but might be a bit of a challenge for a longer stay). The rest however is perfect: clean, charming, quite and romantic. There is also two nice restaurants in the village of Santa Elena which makes it easy to go out for dinner in the evening.

"Four of our larger rooms (The Flycatcher Suite, Chel House cottage, and both rooms in La Casita Guest House) have both shelf space and hanging space for longer stays. Two rooms have limited shelf space (Pe'epen and Hu'u). Only Yuya room has no shelf space for clothing and is generally for very short stays. Kristine"

This is a beautiful, clean, nicely and tastefully furnished B$B type hotel just outside of Uxmal. The owners are really nice and on top of things. Our rooms were very comfortable, air conditioned (a necessity in the Yucatan) and uniquely situated in a peaceful community. The breakfast was excellent. When we arrived, the electricity had gone off because of the recent storm, but the half hour wait was not a problem.

We liked the fact that the hotel was still Mexico in terms of decoration and simplicity. Those looking for the Cancun type accommodations will probably not appreciate the picturesque beauty of the place. We slept soundly on comfortable beds and really enjoyed out stay. We certainly would recommend this place for quality and economy.

A perfect base while exploring the Puuc Route.
We stayed at the Flycatcher Inn for 1 night while on the Puuc Route. It was unexpectedly beautiful and relaxing, exactly what we needed after climbing ruins and driving all day. Rosa was very helpful, as Kristin was not at the Flycatcher during our stay. I only wish we had a bit more time to lay out in the hammock during the day. I would recommend this over the hotels at Uxmal to anyone looking for a quiet and lovely experience in the Yucatan.

If you're ever interested in the Ruta Puuc Mayan sites, this little charmer is the perfect place. The rooms were clean, spacious, well decorated. A hammock is provided for the true siesta. The staff is friendly, the breakfast was perfect and the price is, well, ridiculous for the accommodations. I cannot recommend this place enough, although it is quite out of the way from the Cancun area.

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.
