We arrived very late at night after a 10 hour travel day, dripping with sweat and exhausted. However, before being shown to our room, the owner had to painstakingly write our receipt for our entire four day stay - and, he made us pay in full up front- before we even put our bags down!! We had to empty our... More

It does get quite humid in the house. Strangely our bed sheet didn't fit the bed, could that be the local custom? Did they run out of clean sheets? It was a sheet which covered barely the bed, you could see the mattress on the sides. As soon as you lay on the bed, your skin came in contact with... More

Oscar and his team are really friendly and lovely. The cabanas, gardens, swimming pool area are all really gorgeous. You see and hear all sorts of birds and wildlife, including howler monkeys and parrots. If you love nature and authentic people and places you will love El Colombre. The town and ruins are close and taxis and collectivos are plentiful.

Great tips to visit new places unknown like Roberto Bario. The cottages are very good. The breakfast is delicious. Amazing place to stay. To go to the town you must get... More

El Colombre is definitely great place to stay for your Palenque visit. We stayed here 3 nights and we wished we could stay there longer. We run small B&B ourselves, so when travelling we are looking for similar concepts to ours and know quite well what makes such places not just good, but great! 1. Owners. Karen & Oscar are... More

+: Great place, where you can relax around the pool after a long day of visits. Hosts are very welcoming and serve a very nice breakfast and dinner (not included in room price). We had the room at the back, there was no view but it was very charming. -: no internet. Which can be nice to completely have a... More

We liked twice daily macaw fly-pass, hearing the howlers from the cabin, lovely breakfast and dinner, lift from Oscar when the taxis were busy, the fab Ruins, the spacious cabin. Outside Oscar's control were the occasionally noisy neighbours or their dogs, and the snake (harmless! )in the pool. Maybe within his control was the discrepancy been the booking price and... More
