A mix of comfort and respect for nature, in an old, classical building. While in the pool, we would not be surprised if a rhinoceros or elephant would come from the jungle (garden). The colonial architecture integrated well in the green landscape, with the low hotel disappearing in the vegetation if we walk a few meters away. There were only a few guests, and service was gentle and efficient.
A very good experience.
If your planning a visit to Uxmal and want to have the bed and breakfast experience with a Mayan twist then the Flycatcher Inn is the place to be. Its located in Santa Elena, about 15 minutes from Uxmal, and set back within the jungle. The rooms and cottages are hidden within the jungle foilage and each room has a homespun touch to it. There aren't televisions but there is air conditioning and best of all its in a quiet enough location that the sounds of the jungle will lull you to sleep as well as wake you up in the morning. Which brings us to the breakfast part of the Flycatcher Inn, perhaps the best aspect of staying here. The offer freshly cut fruit and cooked to order omelets with toast and a Mayan style fruit juice. The prices are excellent considering the fact the rooms are beautiful and the breakfast wonderful. Rooms start at roughtly 450 pesos for one bed and up. They prefer that you reserver online at www.flycatcherinn.com and pay in cash. However the prices that quote you include taxes and there are no hidden charges. This is a Mom and Pop joint and it thrives in every aspect.
Rancho Uxmal had reasonable accomodations -- 23 rooms - some with and some without air conditioning. The room was adequate-sized with two beds, clean sheets, two (small) towels, etc. The hot water was not on, but I was too lazy to go complain about it.
There was a pool which would have been wonderful, but it was closed in March as it was off-season. Off season price for un-airconditioned room was 200 to 250 pesos (depending on your negotiating skills).
They also had a restaurant that we used for dinner and breakfast the next morning. The meals were more expensive than Merida or Celestun, but still cheap by Canadian/American standards.
There are also three or four other hotel/motels right outside the Uxmal ruins.
at a few hundred meters from the ruins,surrounded with selva.
if you book on the left side of third floor, you can gaze from your room at the ruins,even the night spectacle!
