We really enjoyed our stay at the Jungle Lodge. We stayed for 3 days but probably should have only done 2. The hotel was nice but there isn't a lot going on in the area. The staff was friendly and helpful and we certainly loved the happy hour at the pool. For the area it's a good choice

The toilet didn't flush well, trickle of hot water in the sink, shower head was rusted, pool chairs collapsed on 2 guests including my wife. In the dining room, the staff did not speak more than a smattering of English. We spent one night, which was one too many. The Tikal Mayan ruins are extremely interesting, and well worth visiting....

Our stay wasn't the greatest - there were lots of problems from the beginning. While we were checking in, another guest came up to the reception - she had just checked in, and when she want to the room, she found someone else's bags already there. They quickly gave her a different room, but it made me uncomfortable. The toilet...

This comfortable but basic lodge is convenient for easy entrance to the ruins. Waking to Howler monkeys is awesome as is the bird life. The staff were friendly but speaking some Spanish was useful. The food was hot and plentiful but a little repetitive and not typical of the country. A bit more imagination would be good. I would certainly...

This is close to the entrance to the Tikal Park and thus is convenient. It is totally lacking in charm. Rooms are OK, and staff was polite, but I think there are probably better places to stay. There was no wifi in rooms and not much in the lodge. The food was OK.

Jungle Lodge has a monopoly location in the Tikal archaeological area and that may account for its less-than-perfect aspects. The hotel is very picturesque from the outside, and the lobby/lounge is attractive and spacious. However, the individual rooms are meager in amenities. No a/c, which is OK during the dry season we are in at present. No individual safe, which...

Absolutely perfect location from which to visit the ruins at Tikal, as you can walk from your room to the site. The grounds are set in the middle of the jungle and you can float around in the pool whilst watching the spider and howler monkeys cavorting in the tree tops. The bar and restaurant are both well stocked with...

When you've reached Jungle Lodge you are already deep into the geography of Tikal National Park. To stay in the Park is part of the Tikal experience in my opinion and this is the second time we are doing it.
