Hotel Xibalba Palenque Reviews
Jun 29, 2007
The statues outside the Hotel Xibalba really helped to set the mood for a day of siteseeing at the ruins. Inside the lobby, there are fullsize replicas of Mayan stelas and frescos.
Rooms are large and comfortable; single or doubles are available for 350 pesos (about $35 USD). There is also a large "cabin" in the back with 5 single beds plus a hammock and small kitchen area.
Rooms are air conditioned and kept clean. There was a small problem with some ants making a path between our window and mirror, but seeing as the hotel is in a jungle region, some allowances for fauna must be made. A troop of howler monkeys woke us up in the morning, which was more a memorable experience than an inconvenience.
The staff was extremely friendly, and willing to help day or night in finding a good restaurant, arranging day tours to Mayan sites, and providing other information. A continental breakfast is available for a small price in addition to the room fee. Internet is available in the lobby (in fact, the night is to be commended for setting up and logging on to the computer for us very late at night, and letting us use their office computer the next day when the customer computer was down.)
The manager was very accomodating, letting us split our 2 night stay into one night, and then a separate night several days later on our return trip.
For the price, it can't be beat. I would definitely stay here again.
