We stayed for two nights whilst visiting Palenque and loved our little room right in the middle of the jungle. We had a room in the block at the rear of the property with a private bathroom. Room was very clean and the fans worked well. Mosquito nets up on all windows too. Margarita was so friendly and happy to... More

If it was possible, I would give this place six stars. My girlfriend and I stayed in a room without air conditioning and it was really great. Big, luminous and fresh at night (if you want they have rooms with air conditioning too). The cleaning standards where those of a luxury hotel. The rooms are immersed in the jungle and... More

Margarita is a really lovely and interesting lady, very welcoming and helpful. She arranged day trips to local sights and our transfer to Guatemala. The rooms are very clean (cleaned everyday). Ours was lovely with a very comfortable bed and was very spacious, with air con and a balcony, we slept really well. The place is really peaceful and probably... More

Señora Margarita is so nice and welcoming. The rooms are clean (cleaned everyday), the beds are comfortable, the bathrooms are clean, the fans work (and are necessary), the air conditioned rooms are great and the jungle atmosphere is fantastic. We even got to hear the hear the howler monkeys in the mornings. Would definitely recommend this.

Nice place, spacious rooms, free drinking water. You need to like the El Panchan atmosphere, and we do. They don't offer breakfast but the ones nearby are good enough. Cheap for the quality they offer, close to the ruins.

Aaaah Ed&Marguerites! What a great experience. Since you can't make a reservation, we just turned up at 6 in the morning. A sign said 'full', ignore that sign! There is always enough room. Marguerite is a unique woman with a lot of knowledge of the area, and a lot of experience with running a hostel. Clean, big rooms in the... More

Such a great place. It kinda emulates the way of living of ancient tribes in the jungle! The cabañas are very comfortable and clean... No mosquitoes or bugs inside. This hotel is located in a hotel village so there is a restaurant in which there are food&drinks (obviously) and live music and acrobat shows! Recommended

We stayed here for a total of two nights. You don't get a much better location than this. right in the forest and and only minutes away from the beautiful ruins. The accommodation is pretty basic but you don't really need anything more. Unfortunately the guy who I assumed to be the manager was not the friendliest and sometimes made... More

We had a great time staying at Margarita's and Ed's. As others have noted, the place, despite the challenging jungle conditions, is immaculate and we loved our room with the veranda and small balcony on the second floor. The sound of the jungle and rain gave us an amazing sleep as we prepared for our Palenque adventure. The ruins are... More

Nice, affordable jungle cabañas with own washroom. Unfortunately the is no breakfast option. Except for that, great place to chill out and good starting point to see the nearby ruins and book tours to the waterfalls.
