Once you find the hotel (very poorly sign-posted), it is lovely! It’s also great for visiting the Maya ruins. However, we found the staff to be unfriendly (with the exception of the guy who helped us with our bags when we arrived) and were surprised that on-one spoke English. The room was good – a bit old and battered but...

This is beyond doubt the best place to stay to visit Calakmul. The hotel is perfectly located at the main entrance of the park (no hotels inside) and is also perfect for visiting the other sites around (Balamku, Chicanna, Xpujil, Becan, etc.). The rooms are unpretentious, but well decorated and with everything need. They are completely in accordance with the...

Overall review: A rustic setting in the forest that is about as close to the Calakmul ruins as you can get, but rather expensive considering the facilities and service. Strengths: 1. Its location relatively close to the Calakmul Reserve and ruins is a major strength considering there are no major towns nearby. The hotel is fairly easy to get to...

Hotel Puerta Calakmul is located right at the entrance to the reserve for the Mayan ruins of Calakmul - great location! The bungalows are well appointed with excellent beds and bathrooms. We were very comfortable and enjoyed the ambiance of being in the jungle with some creature comforts. All of the beds had very nice mosquito netting and created a...

This hotel is in a perfect place for visiting the archeological site of Calakmul. As the name says it is at the door of the first gate. We stayed 2 nights which was perfect as it allows you to get up early for site visit and rest after a long hot day. The hotel arranged for our guide who was...

The atmosphere here is very nice, rooms are nice, but for 200$USD!!!!! per night I expect the following: -english spoken personell (failed) -good wifi (failed) -clean pool (failed) -good service (failed) it is a simple hotel with nice make up, but nothing behind. maximum worth 100$USD. but only because of the close location to Calakmul Temple. Better book a room...

We had a group retreat at the hotel in February 2017 and it was absolutely enchanting. Gary and his staff went out of their way to accommodate our group at the hotel and help us find knowledgeable local guides for bird watching and visiting the archeological sites. Coordinating a group can be challenging but the people and Hotel Puerto Calakmul...

Highly recommend Hotel Puerto Calakmul. The setting is beuatiful - the cabins tucked into the forest. The dining area is screened so you can enjoy the forest and birds while you eat. Food is great and the service lovely. Gary who runs it is very congenial and accommodating. The pool is lovely. Rooms are clean and attractive, using natural materials...

Welcomed by Gary New Year's Eve who set our trip to rights with great recommendations and a cancelled room. Fine food and cabin with mosquito nets. Used Enrique for a birdwatching tour of the site the next day ... a great birder and patient and excellent guide to the site and surrounds.
