This hotel on the way to the archeological site of Palenque could have everything to fulfill your wishes, but unfortunately its management lacks the attention to details which could make it an excellent hotel. The location and the reception, under the traditional pagoda style roof, are very nice. It offers a swimming pool and a spa service which is a... More

This is very good place to stay, if you are going to visit Palenque side - just 5mins by car from the gate... Spacious rooms in bungalows (but bathroom not so big), 2 swimming pools and selva around. Swimming pools are open till 21.00, but they are used later as well. To some bungalows there is quite long walk distance,... More

Me and my wife spend one night at this five star hotel during our honeymoon at Mexico. The room was very big with two double beds and very clean. It has a very nice and big pool located in a jungle landscape! The breakfast buffet was not very rich and delicious but quite traditional for those who like to taste... More

It is a good place to stay when you travel with your family to Palenque, great pool, room, and service. It is well located close to the ruins and Pachan. However, I placed my reservation via Online chat, and there was little acknowledge of my requests and offers at the hotel. I asked them to decorate the bed for my... More

We were able to get a great off season price for our stay which we appreciated. After a hot sweaty day slipping into the pool was like a piece of heaven. The room was very good but a bit sterile without decoration. There is only internet in the lobby where all the mosquito wait in great anticipation. The lobby is... More

Ideally placed for visiting the Palenque ruins - beautiful gardens and pool. Rooms absolutely fine - comfortable beds and well furnished. Breakfast was disappointing - a good choice of Mexican buffet food but little for the European traveller. We ate from the a la carte menu at dinner and the food was very good - the buffet looked less interesting.... More

The Villa Mercedes does what it says on the tin, and nothing more. Do not even think of staying here any longer than you need, honestly. Rooms are super basic. No luxury at all. Pool is great, in particular after visiting the ruins or walking in the jungle, but that is about it. The restaurant makes you feel as if... More

Villa Mercedes is a good choice, just a few minutes away from the Palenque ruins. The hotel is set in a beautiful garden with a very nice and sizeable pool area. The rooms are well equipped, including bathrooms with rain shower. At arrival, the rooms had a bit of a smell, which is probably normal in such a wet area.... More
