Stayed here for 2 nights, visited the Palenque Archeological zone. After doing some research we decided to skip the town of Palenque all together and book two nights at this out of town resort, conveniently located on the road to the Arch. Zone.
we had to wait for a moment, but for the rest the reception was adequate. We received an explanation of opening hours of the restaurant and pool, and how to find our cabin style room. Our luggage was at our room before we arrived.
The resort is in a wonderful "jungle" setting. It was opened in 1974 or 75 and it has that touch of seventies. The swimming pool has a marvelous "natural" layout, supposedly to look like a natural pool. the garden/jungle is well kept and it's true at night you can hear the howler monkeys. The restaurant is half open (roof only), and offers good view of the pool area.
The detached Cabana had it's own terrace which felt very private, everything made with cobble like stones. The layout was ok bathroom and open closet/luggage store in the front and bed in the rear. The room was quiet dark because not much natural daylight and not much lighting points in the room. the bed was average. The Airco noisy (we put it off at night, which was OK in dry season). Bathroom is ok, however there was a constant sewer odour which was definitely not ok. These cabins win their points mainly on it's unique setting.
Food (twice dinner and twice breakfast)
The restaurant setting was good, the food was not bad, but nothing special either. The staff is nice.
Unique setting and nice staff are the main pro's. it is on the exppensive side
