The Sandcastle is a tiny B&B nestled between private homes and other little hotels on the shore of the Gulf of Mexico to the West of Progresso. Getting to the property is half the adventure since directions take you down a sand road! Set on a beautiful, almost deserted beach with fantastic views of the 5-mile Progreso pier and the drop dead sunsets to the west, I enjoyed the wonderful calm, clear water daily (luckily the weather cooperated!). I stayed in the upstairs gulf-view room with a king-sized bed. Katie did not forget any amenity: bottled water dispenser, coffee, frige, TV, VCR/DVD, plenty of towels, toiletries, dresser, storage and closet with hangers. This room included a large balconey with table & chairs, too. Breakfasts were delicious. The large lounging deck included chairs, table, hammocks and a hot tub - half of it shaded by a roof. The innkeepers gave me and my traveling companion very good advice about going ino Progreso and Merida as well as local shopping in Chelem. They listened to our requests and did their best to make our stay enjoyable.
I recommend this little gem on the Yucatecan north coast!!!! Enjoy it before others find this area! Oh, and you'll be astounded when Katie throws open the double doors in the dining room, too!!!!
