JUNGLE LODGE resort – Tikal, Guatemala, nights of Jan. 24-27, 2017 (5 stars) This place is fantastic and the staff and service are great. Very nice cabins with two back-to-back rooms. The only drawback is that you could hear your neighbors in the next room, especially if you were in the bathroom. Like most other places, although there were two...

I am not sure if it was just the hunger we worked up hiking around in Tikal, but the meals at the Jungle Lodge were amazingly delicious! For some reason, I had really low expectations (maybe I had read reviews of other nearby hotels' food), and so I was blown away by the breaded chicken breast and all the soups....

This is not a luxury hotel. Luxury hotels really have no business in the Tikal park, where there is electricity only during the day, and even then sporadically. The hotel, however, handles these limitations deftly. There is always electricity in the lobby and restaurant, and it doesn't go off in the rooms until10:30. The rooms themselves are very nice, really...

We had booked the hotel inside the park with the intention to check in and relax at the great pool and then go in the park at 3. However this was changed when we got to the "entrance" of the park and were forced to by a pass for that time (before 3pm, this is the time you can use...

This hotel is in the park and is a great location, the bungalows were very good and waking to the howler monkeys an experience and having a pool to cool down in after a day wandering was a treat. We weren't so keen on the restaurant as the food and service was very mixed. Some staff were great, some less...

The location is very good. Staff are friendly and helpful. Expect now power during the day and night. Why is this important? There is no AC. So it means the fans don't work at night. It is hot and warm. We did not sleep well because of it. The least they could do is ensure the fans work! If you...

The staff was extremely friendly, effective and accommodating. The restaurant let us borrow two bowls and glasses so we could eat breakfast in our room at a very early hour before the restaurant opened at 6:30. They also let us bring our own wine into the restaurant with no corkage fee. We accidentally forgot to tip our waiter on the...

Our room was airy, spacious and pleasant. We weren't at the lodge much as the day, evening and early morning was spent at Tikal. The swimming pool was welcome after a day walking around the ruins. No electricity much of the time but it wasn't needed. Being close to the ruins is a definite plus. Great being able to walk...

This hotel enjoys more than the best spot in Tikal. It has a great pool area where you can cool down whilst the park is too hot or too busy. The best times to visit the park is early morning and after 3pm when it has cleared of the main bulk of day visitors,you will see more animals and enjoy...
