The room was nice but the pillows were hard, nice hot shower. Hard to get wi fi reception at the hotel . Get your money exchanged elsewhere as the exchange rate at the hotel is lousy. there was a lovely little pool for a swim.

The hotel is good, as is the breakfast. The hotel has a large garden where you can relax and has a great pool. The staff is nice, polite and helpful. We were even cheerfully waved good bye by the gardener.

We were looking forward to spend a night in a decent hotel (after backpacking in mex and cuba) The room was outdated and smelled like moisture, I mean the worst I have smelled ... anyway, the beds are good, the shower is excelent (the best I´ve had in 6 weeks) the food is good, but If coming to palenque again,...

Very nice hotel with big rooms. I like the open-concept / layout of the hotel and the outdoor pool area is beautiful with a nice relaxing pool and hammocks. Good location close to the Palenque ruins; lots of wildlife around the hotel (you can hear the monkeys!). Very friendly staff, helped me with my bags up the stairs. Only downside... More

Very friendly and helpful staff. Hotel itself is nice and good value for money. I bought through ADO bus terminal at 496 Pesos per night for single person including breakfast. The mosquito netting in my room was slightly damaged but they quickly fixed it when I told them. Nice pool, although some leaves in the water. Turtle pond and a... More

At last we arrived somewhere in time to use the pool!! This hotel has a very nice pool, large enough to have a reasonable swim. Rooms were clean and comfortable and we had a good nights sleep. We had an good evening meal in the restaurant and also a good breakfast next morning. We had a balcony looking out over... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Plaza Palenque. Great, helpful staff, a good restuarant and pool (which was especially relaxing after the sticky August days). It is a bit of a walk to the city centre but that didn't bother us. The Plaza is definitely overpriced but for people who are not that adventureous it will provide a comfortable first... More

We stayed here two nights – one before and one after our trip to the Lacandon Jungle. The hotel was booked by our tour provider. This hotel was only OK, even though the rooms were reasonably comfortable and clean. There was a decrepit feeling to the hotel, which had seen better days, and a damp smell to the rooms. The...

The room smelled badly of mold and there was clearly mold on the celing tiles and water dripping from the celing. I checked other rooms and found similar conditions. The restaurant was mediocre and the pool was unclean. I absolutely recommend staying elsewhere.
