The best thing about this hotel is that it has a beautiful river, the Rio Chacamax, running through it. We had a wonderful afternoon swim here and it was refreshing and delightful. The second best thing is that the hotel is set in expansive gardens which are attractive. The third best thing is that it has a swimming pool with... More

We opted for the Standard Plus room, having read reviews complaining about the state of the cheapest rooms. What we got was a good-sized, very clean, well-furnished room with a quiet, cold A/C unit (a relief after the oppressive heat) close to the well-kept pool. The gardens are great, and it's a tough choice between hanging out by the pool... More

Excellent location and very nice swimming pool. The gardens are well kept and beautiful and the rooms are relatively quiet, but there are some major gripes still; - Worst restaurant Ive encountered in ages. It took 3 hours to finish a dinner service, mostly due to absolute chaos ensuing when we tried to settle the bill - Airconditioning unit aimed... More

We where in this hotel in 1994 and booked again because they claimed the whole hotel was completely renovated in october 2013. On entering our room we noticed that nothing was changed and the a/c was making as mutch noise as in 1994. We complained....they made us wait 2 hours, only to tell us that the a/c was working normal... More

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
