This place is so nice, the owners are really helpful. Also recently they opened up their kitchen to all heists which is nice to meet people and to travel on a low budget. The owner changed about a year ago, the new owners are Mexican and very welcoming, relaxed and easy-going. Good for backpackers also or bikepackers like us!
These jungle cabañas and rooms are comfortable and peaceful. The staff was incredibly friendly, helpful, and accommodating. I was here 8 years ago, and I am so happy that I returned. The cabañas are right next to the entrance of Palenque ruins, so it is easy to visit them.
I stayed in one of the basic rooms (300 pesos per night) of Margarita and Ed's hotel. There was a ceiling and normal fan, a private bathroom, a comfy bed, and a desk. I stayed there 6 days, and those were great. The area is very quiet, and I slept like a log. The only minus of the hotel is poor outdoors lighting, which makes it rather complicated to reach the hotel at night, so have a flashlight when going for dinner at Don Mucho's.
Best of the cabanas in the jungle. Simple and comfortable, clean facilities. Margaritas hospitality and help was incredible, can't ask for much more. Loved the lush gardens and howling by night. Great spot to explore the ruins.
This hostel is perfect for a couple of days in El Panchan and visiting the Palenque Ruins. It’s only 2.5km to the entrance to the ruins. The rooms was really clean and spacious with a ceiling fan. The fan kept it cool enough as the building was quite shaded by the forest already. We had a private bathroom and towels included, which were changed when the room was cleaned very day. Only downside was the receptionist Antonia, Margarita’s sister. She really isn’t a people person and made the whole check in and payment process hard work. We don’t speak fluent Spanish and she doesn’t speak English but it could have been so much better if she was just bothered / interested in you or her job. But don’t let her put you off, it’s a great find of a hostel! TIP: you have to call to make a reservation or just rock up. We got a Spanish speaker to call for us as we don’t speak Spanish, it’ll be needed. They answered the phone straight away. …
