We intended to stay at Cabanas Safari and actually looked very much forward to our stay over Easter 2014, after securing us a bungalow for 4 nights early September 2013 nearly 8 months before departure. Unfortunately, we have been contacted by the hotel just a few weeks before the upcoming stay, a contradictory e-mail in a horrible English, hard to... More

This is a good place to start if you are novice to ecological hotels. Everything is good in this cabanas: peaceful environment , peacocks, hammocks, Internet and breakfast. Interior design was unexpectedly interesting: second floor for the third guest, mosquito net and painted headboard. There was one failure from this hotel: linens of poor quality. I personally think that it... More

I had the opportunity to spend four days in the amazing hotel of Hotel Cabanas Safari in Palenque. The place was beautiful and original in its own way, in the middle of the jungle with small cabins for two, biggers are also available though.The cabins were clean, comfortable, with bathrooms, small television, fans to cool yourself down during the humid...

Pet-friendly and awesome service. This place is a bit off-the-beaten path, and getting to it from the main road involves driving for ~100 meters on a rutty dirt road which at times has a fairly steep incline (for perhaps 100 ft at a time). Once beyond that, though, you are in a jungle oasis. The attendant when we were there... More

We recently stayed one night at this little place on our way back to Playa Del Carmen. It was our second visit. We actually went out of our way 20 miles to stay here as we had fond memories of our previous stay. We got a different room this time, which was very similar to the room we had before.... More

Nice, quiet, comfortable rooms with A/C in the middle of a garden with a clean pool and close to the ruins. The people were very friendly, honest and helpful and it was a real pleasure meeting them. You can hear peacocks and birds singing in the morning. Really a nice experience while in Palenque which I hope to repeat some... More

Hubby and I stayed here two nights during a trip through Mexico. We chose this hotel primarily due to it being pet friendly. Hotel is out in the "jungle" and has a very jungly feel. The rooms are very basic with a thatch roof, air conditioning, shower etc. There is a screen between the thatch roof and the bed so... More

The grounds are beautiful. I felt as if I was in another world hiding out from the world. The service is amazing...I went there with a group of friends and rented three cabanas. They will give you a tour of the grounds, they have peacocks, chickens, roosters on grounds. There are also palm trees and wild flowers and they grow... More

These cabanas are set on a nice peice of property very close to the ruins. The cabanas are cute, but they are not the cleanest I have ever seen (pretty slimy shower). The animals on the grounds are adorable (I especially liked eating breakfast with the deer every morning). Just beware that where there are lots of birds, there are... More

We stayed here between Christmas and New Year's 2006 and loved it. The location is wonderful (quiet, rural), the hosts are helpful and friendly, the grounds are beautiful. The cabanas are surrounded by a functioning rubber plantation - we got to see them collect the sap from cups below the slashed bark, wash it and press it into sheets, and... More
