This is an ecco hotel. Even the soap is organic. You can stay in twin huts, or two storey huts and enjoy reading In a "varanda" when the night aproaches. After dinner You are invaded by a enormous desire to sleep, as the sounds of the forest invite You to. In the morning you'll find yourself relaxed...deeply relaxed. May be... More

Place is ok, if a bit overpriced. I found staff very friendly and helpful. I had an issue with double booking and they were very flexible and helpful in solving the issue. Rooms are clean, rustic but functional. There is only WiFi up at the reception. Saw many with kids and there is an ok pool. Restaurant is unpretentious and... More

The drive upto the village was easy and fun due to its location next to the forest reserve and a tingle of anticipation came over us we saw the look out tower with the possibilities of seeing new flora and fauna. Our welcome at reception was great and all of the staff were really helpful and pleasant, although this did... More

We stayed here for 2 nights on 12th and 13th July. The facilities are quite basic, but we expected that. Having stayed in safari lodges in Africa, we were actually expecting it to be more basic than it was. The rooms are decent, more spacious and comfortable than I thought they would be. Because we were on a tour we... More

We spent two nights here, but I am still unsure of whether we have been in an hotel or in something stranger, similar to an adventure camp...Not good as hotel, but intriguing as a camp. So I gave an "average" rating, which actually does not fit either. For instance, in the morning, we woke at the deafening songs of nearby... More

We stayed in Chicanna for one night on our way from Palenque to the Riviera Maya. The resort is in the middle of nature and visited by many birds. We thought this was a small hotel, but there are probably a dozen of the same two story buildings on the premises. This means the hotel is unexpectedly large and therefore... More

Chicanna Ecovillage Resort Campeche near the town of Xpujil and the border with Guatemala is a birdwatcher's paradise located close to a host of Mayan ruins. The resort facilities are comfortable and inexpensive, as resorts go, and the onsite restaurant offers very good food, with superb service by well trained and earnest waiters. Our group of friends/birders have been coming... More

This collection of mainly two-storey, four unit buildings is set in well-kept grounds with a very good pool. The Ecovillage is located just opposite the entrance to the Chicanná ruins – close enough to walk there. Also nearby are the Balamkú, Becán and Xpujil ruins, all worth a visit for their impressive remains and natural settings. The accommodation is spacious,... More

We were on a Mayan Ruin Tour for five days and to our surprise we arrived at this Oasis! Sooo charming and very comfortable. The Beds were firm - just like we like them! Everything was lovely. The restaurant could not do enough for you. The service was slow but we were 30 people ask for everything! Ha! If you... More
