At first, I wasn´t exactly thrilled about this place, but actually it turned out to be very nice stay. The price is cheap - we payed 100 pesos per night for cabana with shared bathroom. The room was basic with one big bed and one small one, chair and fan. The mosquitonets at our room windows didn't have holes, as was said in some previous reviews. Shared bathrooms and toilets were clean. The hostess spoke good English. That was a big plus, as we don't speak much Spanish. Nearby Don Mucho restaurant had delicious food and good coctails.
The only minus is that it was a littlebit noisy at night, but that was a small problem.
El Panchan itself was very nice with many backpackers and hippies staying there. We loved the jungle and laidback atmosphere of the place. It also felt very safe there. Cabanas are much better accomodation in Palenque than some big hotel. Good base to visit the amazing mayan ruins.
