We staid here one night, one the eve of our visit to Palenque. The hotel is conveniently located just beside Palenque. The welcome was great and professional. Our room was great. We did not enjoy the pool as we did not have enough time, but it was very nice and quiet. The only downside to our stay was our dinner.... More

First of all, let me tell you that all words I can write on this review will come up short compared to the magical experience we lived on this hotel, we stayed only 3 nights, from July 10 to July 13, 2014; I'd have wished those days never passed. I went with my wife and daughters (5 and 11 years... More

We stayed 2 nights. The owner welcomed us and showed us the property he built from scratch reminiscing a Maya town. The food is excellent. The pool is in the border of a pond surrounded by jungle vegetation. Rooms are big and neat. Great staff that make our stay wonderful! Best hotel in Palenque.

This boutique hotel can be approached by a private driveway from the main road. The hotel design was modeled on a small Mayan city, with its own Mayan Temple in front. The rooms are in a building that was based on the design of a Mayan residence. Our large suite included a large bed and a single bed for our... More

The hotel is in a remote setting but close enough to the ruins and the town. The pool and grounds are so beautiful, it almost entices you to linger at the hotel more than you would normally do. The food in the restaurant is delicious with many local and native ingredients. The owner is very knowledgeable about the Maya culture.... More

This small boutique hotel fully deserves its high Tripadvisor ratings. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable, the grounds are extensive and delightful, with a lagoon and small waterfall-fed pool lovely for soaking and relaxing in the heat. Raphael the owner was always friendly and helpful. When we had a difficult experience with a full day trip to the Mayan sites... More

We have stayed at Piedre dr Agua in Merida and loved it so when we went to Palenque we stayed there as well ..for the first night;-) unfortunately the cleanliness and the service as well as accommodations were not nearly on par..even for a place in the jungle.

This is a well located hotel within a short drive of the Palenque archaeological site. Most of the staff we met spoke good English and were very helpful. The room was huge with a large sitting area with fresh flowers. The minibar has free non-alcoholic drinks which are replenished during your stay. The safe is too small to keep much... More
