The Jungle Lodge Hotel is amazing in some ways, badly broken in others. On the upside the hotel is located literally adjacent to the Tikal park, so you are staying deep in the heart of the jungle...there is nothing else around you. It's well designed and got a good vibe. And I believe very reasonably priced. But - like all other things - you get what you pay for. The service here is abysmal. The staff should be wearing shirts that say "Zero F***s Given" in the dining staff and reception area. I get it, this isn't Paris or London or NYC, and I'm not expecting much of anything. But just a little effort or attempt to fake like you care would be appreciated, especially the dining staff. Adding to the annoyance: Our first room we had to be moved because the toilet didn't work. Our second room the shower didn't work. The door to our room doesn't latch when being closed, making it challenging to just close and lock the door when you leave. There's no AC so the windows are left wide open, which is fine except that there's light shining through them from the outside. The pool is busted and poorly cared for. There's just a LOT of headaches at this place, rather than a nice experience, because of what feels like a totally careless staff. All this aside, people should be clear before they book here about what you'll experience: * there is wifi only in the dining area and the lobby/reception area, only available when the power is on * There is virtually no staff that speaks English. * The rooms don't have AC, so if you're a bad sleeper it's not the place for you (noises outside and lights shining in your window). * They only offer electricity for a few hours during the day, and then from 6-11 pm. After that, even your ceiling fan turns off. Again, cool experience, but come here with clear expectations and you'll be happier than me.

I hoped staying close to Tikal in a premium location would be worth the premium price, I loved Tikal itself but this hotel was definitely not worth its price for me. Firstly the tours this hotel booked me were ridiculously bad. Both my guides for Jaxha and Tikal were just telling random and totally unrelated non-sense regarding Egyptian myths, Summerian scripture, astrology, aliens, time being circular instead of linear, modern people living in a collective illusion and the Mayans having left this earth at 900 AD for a different dimension now that their earthly work had been completed. There was literally zero structured information on the architecture or history of the sites. Questions from my side on such matters were ignored, talked around or met with the suggestion to read a certain book. The tour I booked for Tikal was afterwards explained by reception as “just to see sunrise”, which is strange for a 4 hour tour which according to their own website is supposed to describe how Tikal was settled. Secondly the hotel staff was very unorganized and unfriendly to the point of rudeness. My room didn’t have a proper mosquito net like the ones around me, more like a decoration reminding of mosquito nets but with splits on every side (and no zip or velcro or so). When I tried to politely inquire about this or about the bad tours at reception I was basically just laughed at. Not any solution was offered. Staff also pushed me to hand over my passport or ID as deposit for opening a restaurant tab. Not only would that be illegal in the country giving out my passport or make my travel insurance void. Also this is just plainly creating a distortion tactic for taking more money later on which I would only expect in a dodgy youth hostel in a big city. Not in a premium hotel in the middle of a jungle which already has my credit card details securing my booking… After refusing several times it was suddenly OK, so apparently it indeed wasn’t compulsory but just a try to distort money later. Thirdly the on-site restaurant was a pretty disinterested experience. Staff would look completely uninspired, take forever to bring you a menu, then take forever to come back for taking orders or bringing the food. Queries I made for very simple additions or replacements to dishes were always forgotten on first attempt.

Camiba cultural tours brought me here for my visit to Tikal. It was the right call. The hotel is very comfortable for being in the middle of a National park. No Air conditioned but you are in a rustic area. The staff is nice and would go above and beyond to make your stay a pleasant one. Thank you David and Kevin. Cesar is a great guide. Same owners have a hotel in Flores. Isla de Flores with the best roof bar in town.

Our third stay at the Jungle Lodge (previously in 1977 and 1999), it has improved with age! Beautiful, well maintained grounds, renovated/remodeled rooms and unbeatable location. They seem to have mastered the whole electricity thing pretty well, though we did lose the fan part of one night. Good hot water but no AC. This visit we splurged on a suite -- spacious, well furnished, modern bathroom with an indoor and outdoor shower and small private outdoor garden. King-sized bed with mosquito netting. Unfortunately the outdoor jacuzzi wasn't working (and, for those of us who are connoisseurs of mosquito netting, the netting seemed more for show than function). The restaurant meets or surpasses expectations. The pool looked inviting but it was actually too cool to tempt us on this stay. In summary, this remains The Place to stay when visiting Tikal.

Stayed overnight here in order to experience the Tikal Sunrise which I highly recommend and I'm not a morning person! The lodge is literally at the entrance to the park, rooms are very spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was minimal which was unfortunate as I was hungry after sunrise tour! Great that check out is 1pm give you time to visit park, Respect to reception staff who were super friendly
