This hotel is right next to the park entrance and there is wildlife all over the grounds. We were even woken up each morning by howler monkeys. On the other hand though, the staff were cold, even insulting at times, the room was very basic and very overpriced.

Comfortable hotel in perfect location at park entrance and I think it's a must to stay in one of the few hotels there to see Tikal early morning. Food in the restaurant is good, pool nice, bar closes too early though.

This hotel is very tired with below average bathrooms. The plus is the location. The restaurant was a pleasant surprise as it did not look appealing but the food was good. Our guide, Antonio, was excellent and can be recommended.

The setting is perfectly located for the Mayan ruins, but that's about the best thing about this place along with all the wild animals who frequent it. The barstaff don't return change, the food is bizarre, the toilets block constantly and the electricity is off after 9pm. Worst thing is the way they whack up all costs then had the...

The Jungle lodge is a cabin style "resort" close to the entrance of the ruins at Tikal. The place is about an hours drive from Flores airport and is remote. The individual cabins are relatively spacious, clean and with good beds and a good bathroom but lack air conditioning. There is an old ceiling fan. The windows have mosquito mesh...

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
