I'm sure this place must have been a blast in its heyday but that must have been some time ago. The only reason to be here is to visit the Palenque archeological site which is really good. The Hotel Ciudad is not! A lot of tour groups use the hotel so if your stay coincides with a big bus parked in the car park prepare yourself for a very short night's sleep, as our very friendly bunch of Russians checked out at 5 am slamming every door they could find behind them - ah, bless them. The swimming pool is good to cool off although may be an idea to bring crutches if you attempt the concrete slide as it gives you a massive thump on the your hip as you round the bend - ouch! Outside dining was interesting although the food was predictably dull. Staff tried their best but perhaps a losing battle.
