Convenient location for the Mayan site at Palenque. Rooms are set around a courtyard or as adjoining villas in the gardens. Some are quite distant from the reception/bar/restaurant area which may be a problem in heavy rain. The courtyard rooms were large and reasonably furnished but seemed to be musty and needed some updating. There are two swimming pools. Wifi... More

Great location just off the main road, next door to Aluxes ecopark and a 5 minute ride from the ruins. It's nice and clean, decorated with a Mayan theme throughout, so a walk through the hotel is like visiting a museum. Fiendly staff, nice restaurant and a pool with a slide. What more can you ask for? My flight was... More

I stayed here for 4 nights with friends, and it was a good experience. The grounds are beautiful and the rooms are rustic, clean and cute. We found the staff to be very friendly. The location is very convenient to the ancient archeological site of Palenque.

We stayed 2 nights here with a group of 30 grown-up tourists from Finland. In spite of the fact, that this compound is not very modern, we liked our stay here. Bungalow-style accommodation has its own charm. There is not very much to see in the vicinity, as described in other ratings. But never mind, you can make the jungle... More

Although the room looked OK to begin with, considering the hotel is located at the edge of the jungle/rain forest, my wife woke me up at 02:00 complaining she could feel things crawling on her. When we turned on the light, the whole bed was alive with bed bugs. We brushed them off each other, dressed and went to the... More

This 'resort' is just down the road from Palenque ruins. There's nothing around it, except other hotels. It's a short drive from the main town. It's quite large with a couple of swimming pools (which we didn't try) and attractive gardens. We arrived quite late and the heavens opened and remained so for the entire night and following morning -... More

The rooms are very smelly, dirty and worn down. And so are the bathrooms. I did not like the athmosphere of that place. No soul, no service, no nothing! Even the sofas in the reception area were old and filthy and the restaurant didn't look comfy and welcoming. It's only for big tourist buses, that only stay for a night... More

Cute, cozy bungalows in forest like setting. 2 swimming pools which kept kids busy in the evenings. Restaurant has limited option for food. The rooms are good and comfortable. Internet only in the lobby area. Pool area is the best part of the hotel. Some staff members are really nice but some not so friendly. Lot of greenery in the... More

Close to the Mayan ruins at Palenque it is ideal spot to stay, rooms not too bad, wifi in lobby only and decent breakfast. We went into town for evening meal so didn't use the restaurant. Shame they didn't open the main bar but there was a small bar in the restaurant. Swimming pools ok, but a bit chilly!

Pool is fabulous, garden are very nice. Rooms, as other reviewers have said, are dark and basic, but for the cost they are reasonable value. The restaurant is not brilliant The food was average at best. Service was okay. As a base for visiting the ruins it couldn't be better placed - only a 10 minute drive. Service wasn't great,... More
