- The view - Clean rooms - Good AC
- the team, very unfriendly although we tried to speak spanish a lot, and not helpful at all - They tried to scam us for 400 pesos - no hot water - you can order almost nothing from the restaurant, they had no juices or anything else left
Amazing view on the jungle from the breakfast terrasse or the swimming pool. A 60’s legacy charming hotel which is perfectly located for visiting the ruins and enjoying the nature. The jungle sounds ambiance at sunrise and sunset are peaceful. Good breakfast and very kind personnel.
Amazing location within a very short driving distance of the Palenque ruins. Beautiful property with pool overlooking the forest – beautiful to wake up to the sounds of Scarlet Macaws and howler monkeys! The room was deluxe, spacious, sparkling clean, and AC worked like a dream (very welcome in the strong heat and humidity). Staff were friendly and helpful, and I especially enjoyed conversations with the outgoing chef. Breakfast (in the realm of $5) was really tasty – I definitely recommend the ice-cold juice, strong coffee, and delicious tamales and chilaquiles. And, as a bonus, filtered water is available free on-site for guests. Overall, I highly recommend Hotel Casa Lakyum. Just a friendly reminder: the Palenque-area seems to have a higher density of scorpions than other areas in the lowland jungle of Chiapas. Always remember to check inside clothes and shoes before putting them on, especially first thing in the morning!
Wifi is only available in the reception area (doesn't quite reach rooms).
The view, the pool, the organic garden and the general structure of the hotel. Breakfast is also nice with organic options. The massage I received at this hotel was truly amazing.
Breakfast should be included in the price
The room was big with 2 beds so it was perfect for us. The view on the jungle is quite impressive. The hotel was almost empty so we were not bothered with any noise! Near Palenque ruins
No mosquito nets. We had a terrace but it was dirty. The pool was not really cleaned. It almost felt like an abandoned hotel ... I think it could be an amazing place / or it used to be but efforts need to be made.
