Set in the jungle, this modern hotel is well set up with rooms scattered around the grounds and a central reception and restaurant area. All well appointed and the staff were helpful. Wifi only in reception and the restaurant is a bit below the standard expected these days. Location is perfect for the ruins - less than 5 minutes drive!

The hotel is located just outside of the Ruins of Palenque. The rooms are nice and clean, well kept with nice firm mattresses. Only one small bottle of drinking water is provided. Wi-Fi is only available in the lobby but it is really slooooooow. The hotel is popular with tour groups which makes it difficult during the breakfast rush. Service... More

We only stayed one night as we had traveled to Palenque to visit the ruins. This property is beautiful and well planned out, set in the jungle. The staff in all areas were always ready to assist in any way. The gardens around the property and large pool area was well taken care of. Rooms were starting to look a... More

We stayed here for 3 nights as part of a 3 week tour around Mexico. The property looks very welcoming when you arrive, lovely entrance and gardens which after a stressful journey getting there was wonderful. However the staff on reception were not very well helpful, it did not help that they had very little English(which isn't their fault) and... More

A clean, comfortable place to stay that seems out of place without a beach. The guest rooms fall a little short of the grandiose expectations set by the entry and reception area - or even the gardens, and could stand a makeover. The good: everything here answers island resort, from the vaulting pole and palm thatch reception area surrounded by... More

I stayed at the Hotel Villa Mercedes in Palenque for two nights as part of a tour of Mexico. The hotel consists of a main reception / eating area and various small buildings scattered in a park. The park is really beautiful and the scenery is very pleasant. The hotel is, however, rather sad. Rooms are big but they have... More

I would have stayed 2 nghts if I had known ! It would have been a good place to take a rest for half a day from a very demanding trip around the country. We stayed in this hotel on our way to visit Palenque. Unfortunately, we arrived late in the day, around 8 pm and we had to leave... More
