This hotel is located just outside Palenque. And that is a pro: palenque town is a bit of a mess. Jungle gardens, beautiful rooms (new part!!!) and friendly staff. Hotel pool offers a bar with nice cocktails. The hotel restaurant, Don Manuel, offers good food and, again, has friendly staff. Only downside: vegetarian options are....not really meals! Steamed veggies are... More

This hotel is not fancy, but the rooms are clean and the staff is GREAT. The hotel is spread out over a couple of acres in a park like setting. The front desk person, Rudy", speaks great English and is super-duper helpful. If you don't speak Spanish, then you might want to consider this hotel. Rudy worked in the states... More

We so enjoyed our stay at the Nututun Hotel in Palenque. The grounds consisting of several acres were beautiful located outside of town in the jungle. They didn't even have many mosquitoes. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff was wonderful, especially Rudolfo who manned the front desk. He was friendly, spoke english, always had time for us, and... More

This hotel has various levels of rooms, owing to its six buildings spread out over several acres of garden. The rooms aren't anything special but the gardens and the river are nice, as is the open palapa lobby. The really nice thing is that after driving for six brutal hours over bruising, washed out, speed bump filled roads(from San Cristobal)'... More

The restaurant has a very nice view and when we arrived we saw (and heared) the monkeys. Great wildlife next to your room. The rooms are a bit ols, but very clean and... More

A restful setting after a long journey from Uxmal via Campeche (interesting walk from Town Gate to Sea Gate). Apart from the river setting the hotel has pools and residential blocks are spread around pools. Rooms are clean, staff friendly, and setting deligthtful. We had a lovely fish meal cooked in foil, with excellent coffee. Breakfast was a set menu... More

Located on a river which widens to a small lake at one point makes this place special. You can actually swim very pleasantly in the river, although there is also an adequate pool much nearer to the rooms. After a sweaty tour of the ruins this is great, and at night, when the pool is full of chlorine it is... More

I first visited this hotel in 1991 - 2013 it was just as magical for me as it was back then. Service is fantastic, they even gave me a ride to town & back to get more pesos from an ATM . Wonderful !
