This hotel is a great, affordable option to crash after a long day visiting the ruins at Palenque. The rooms are somewhat basic, but perfect for resting after a long day. Our favorite part, however, was the big pool. It was very refreshing to swim in the pool after a sweaty day walking around Palenque; there's even a surprisingly fun... More

Palenque was very hot and very humid. Thankfully the air conditioning in the rooms here was cold enough to make life bearable. The hotel itself was fairly modern, although the lighting was a bit dark. The restaurant was open air, by the pool. Some people complained about mosquitoes, although i didn't actually come across any. The food was OK, but... More

Great hotel. Good restaurant & pool area & rooms are good too. In the heat maybe a little far to walk into town. There is a supermarket within 6-7 mins walk that sell literally everything! The staff are friendly and waiting staff attentive (although it wasn't too busy when we were there).

Nice tropical hotel. Pool was lovely. It was good in the sense of pool, breakfast, size of rooms. No wifi apart from central areas. The rooms were completely riddled with Mosquitos though and a bit dark so bring deet/spray. It's super near the ruins so good base for that.

This was my second visit to Palenque, and I sincerely recommend this hotel. They give you a welcome drink (beer, margarita or jamaica), and the pool is really nice. There's a small toboggan, a pool bar, and a playground. The bad part is that the wifi is not that good in the hotel, but anyway if you are looking for... More

Lovely hotel. Well appointed room. Excellent restaurant and breakfast. Lots of bits of jungle in and among the buildings. Watched an Iguana outside our bedroom window for a while. Staff very attentive. Lovely place to stay.

I wanted to give 4 as a vote because compared to the one of San Cristobal there is no comparison. Surely the interiors are from improve, though we have improved the soundproofing. In addition here we have the advantage of having a beautiful swimming pool and a garden taken care. I have to admit also that the restaurant has proved... More

Ciudad Real Palenque, unlike her sister hotel in San Cristóbal de las Casas, is not situated in the midst of the action, but some 2.5 km out of Palenque town (further away from the ruins). The hotel has a large pool to laze around at, but rooms are rather basic. Air-conditioning is available in the bedrooms, but the unit in... More

The hotel served as a great base for the waterfalls and ruins. Clean and lovely grounds. Excellent pool. My son lovd the large slide. I liked the hammocks. Unfortuntely bar was normally closed as it was off season. Restaraunt was average and a bit pricey for quality. Solid breakfasts. Complaints would be not letting you take pool towels to the... More
