We just purchased a house in Chelem, so only stayed at the Sand Castle one night. We rented a car at Merida airport and arrived after 11:00 p.m. Katie greeted us and our room was very clean and I really liked the Mexican sink bowl on the large vanity in the bathroom. We had a nice visit with Katie over...

My Mum and I spent 9 days with Katie and Jim at the Sandcastle Inn, what a nice family environment. Katie looked after everything for us and I think we will become life long friends. At the beach, close to amenites and great breakfasts. Katie took care of us and made sure we were not wanting for anything.

Arrived in Merida at 10:00pm on Friday, Jim from the Sand Castle Inn was there to greet us and give us "free" ride (about 25 minutes) from the airport to Chelem. I was going to rent a car, Katie suggested that Jim pick us up, then I could rent (have a car delivered) to Sand Castle. This worked out very...

First of all I would like to thank all the people who have written some great reviews on our B&B, they are greatly appreciated; so many of them have now become either friends or neighbors. Our first and foremost business is our bed and breakfast; we love it here and are trying to improve it every chance we get. Recently...

We just returned from our first stay (ten days) at Sand Castle Inn, Chelem, Yucatan, Mexico and loved the whole experience. It's on a beautiful Gulf Coast beach about five miles west of Progreso, and 30 miles north of Merida, the city you would fly in to. Katie and Jim are the owner-operators and they provide great hospitality. Our objective...
