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...

Great place to stay and explore Tikal. Although it was raining when we arrived we quickly were register, given room keys and shown to our accommodation, 9B. Great soup for supper, retired to our room listening to the night noises. We were awakes to the sound of howler monkeys and squawking brown jays. After breakfast we had a lovely, easy...

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. We registered and went to our accommodation, 12B, overlooking a grove of forest, birds chirping in the late afternoon, rays...

I was a little worried by the negative reviews on this site, but we found this to be a great place to stay at Tikal. It has some "luxury" features (towels made into swans on the bed when we returned) and some that were not - you could see right through to the next bathroom via the drainpipe. However, overall,...

This hotel is very basic, tired-looking, and definitely screaming out for renovation. Originally built to house archaeologists working in the National Park, the individual bungalows are of a utilitarian style providing few comforts. Upon arrival we were shown to a bungalow which had no electricity; we asked for another room and were grudgingly moved. Our relief at having electricity in...

What a disappointment! Our room was tawdry and very basic, with overused sheets and bedding which did not look too clean. The bathroom was an equal disappointment. We were glad we were only booked in for one night. The staff was not particularly friendly or helpful. One waiter asked for a tip before we had even finished our dinner. The...
