I stayed here a few years ago and it was amazing, so I was suprised to see some bad reviews. I am glad I ignored the bad reviews. This was one of the best experiences I ever had.
Apparently the owners had rented out the hotel (explains bad reviews) but are now managing the hotel again.
The pool is to die for, especially as Palenque is very humid. To take a soak after a days exploring is bliss.
The rooms are beautifully designed, jungle chic. I slept like a log in my air conditioned room. I felt safe and comfortable in my room and throughout the hotel. Rooms and all the grounds are kept immaculately.
Breakfast was incredible, try the 'chillaquilles verdes' or tacos dorados at lunch.
You can get a collectivo (mini van taxi) outside the hotel for 10 pesos to the ruins or in yo town. I also went for a run early morning and it was beyond beautiful.
The staff didn't speak much English but hey you are in Mexico.
If you are looking for a room with 50 channels and room service this is not for you. But if you want a chic, peaceful jungle experience then la aldea has it all.
