Gorgeous open courtyard and large, very comfortable room. We even had a little balcony to watch the foot traffic on 5 Avenida below. Front desk was extremely helpful as well with local suggestions on where to eat. Grab some cervezas and a pechugon and just chill.

It is my fifth time in coming to JUNGLA CARIBE and there is no where else I would go. I stay for eight weeks now and every year I add on another week or so. This hotel makes you feel like you are family. Trust me once you stay here there will be no other place that you will go....just... More

We stayed here for 11 days and the only good thing about this hotel is the location. Bad things: Poor service ( they couldn't recommend us how to get to à cenote or what tour we should take, and they couldn't even get us àn icebucket for new years eve ) The street is very loud outside, so we woke...

We stayed in this hotel for 6 night and we book it last minute trout Internet. Hotel is very interesting decoration with plenty of details and lush vegetation. Located on the 5th avenue, so it is normal to be noisy. If you want to have good sleep then try some other options :-) Room was big with kitchenette but little... More

My daughter is an Art Teacher so we decided in January to take a spring break trip in April, This hotel was the best choice for us. By no means is it all inclusive like the resorts, and we knew that in advance. It is right on Quinta Avenida where we wanted to be. Loved the fact that we were... More

With all the great reviews we thought we couldn't go wrong here - WRONG! When I'm on vacation I want just a wee bit of luxury, a comfortable bed, a nice pool and a good shower. None of these were had here. The bed was like a piece of plywood with a thin sheet on it - not even a... More

If you're looking for a great deal and a wonderful and memorable hotel a minute's walk from the Playa, this is the place for you! Kitschy and with wonderful staff and very comfortable rooms, the Jungla is owned by a German couple who also live on the premises and add an elegant eccentricity to this gem! we want to return...

We were 3 girls (24-31) travelling for 5 days in Mexico, we booked our flight without looking for a hotel. Once we arrived in Cancun, we rented a car and drove to Playa del Carmen, it was very easy to find free parking close from the City Center and 5 avenida (main street) We looked at several hotels and finally...
