This hotel probably has one of the best locations in the world, however, it's far away from matching it's surroundings. We booked thru booking.com and stayed for 4 days in early December 2014, we could not believe our eyes when we were back in college, being assigned a tiny room with a bathroom that's shared with other hotel guests, hotel...

If you want to visit the magnificent Mayan ruins of Tikal, this is the No.1 place to stay. The Jungle Lodge is the closest accommodation to the site and located right inside the national park – we woke up to howler monkeys hanging in the trees right outside our lodge (don't be alarmed by their loud roars in the night)...

This is an ideal location to stay if you want to go to Tikal, especially at sunrise. They will arrange a guide for you, which I personally recommend unless you don't mind walking through the park in the pitch dark. You will need to pay for the tickets to the park as you arrive at the edge of it- and...

After having read some pretty scathing reviews on TripAdvisor about the attitude of the restaurant staff here, we were leery about eating here but I am happy to say that they must have totally changed the staff because our experience during four meals at Jungle Lodge was the exact opposite. The staff were all delightful, the food was presented promptly...

If you want to visit Tikal, this is probably the place to stay. It is right in the national park and only a short walk away from the ruins themselves meaning that you can get there early, or even watch the sun rise from the top of the temple. The hotel itself is in attractive landscaped grounds, but is all...

We flew into Florres from Belize City and on my request the hotel arranged a transfer from the airport for a fee. The hotel is approx 1 hour away from Florres airport and you have to pay the entrance fee to Tikal separately. Make sure you have some Guatemalian currency as, on our drivers advice we got some US dollars...

We stayed at this hotel at the suggestion from a great friend. On arrival we were greeted by staff and felt welcomed as if we were coming home. The hotel was undergoing renovations which I must say are impressive. The hotel is conveniently located at the entrance of the park, in tune with its environment. Electricity to the rooms its...

We found the Jungle Lodge to be much nicer than the Jaguar Inn. We did not take a look at the Tikal Inn which as a little bit down the road from the other two so can’t say how the Jungle Lodge compares there. Both the Jungle Lodge and Jaguar Inn are inside Tikal National Park and very near the...

The location is perfect especially if you are doing a sunrise tour. Our room was large and the bed comfortable, the linens were also of a good quality and the mosquito net in tact! The room was very clean and cleaned each day. We were on a B&B rate and breakfast was great. I found the food better than expectations...

Great location to Tikal. Rooms were poorly lit. It was difficult to see in the evening. There were a couple US type electrical outlets in the room but they were two prong only. So if you had a computer with a grounded (three prong plug) you were out of luck. Lots of birds and the occasional monkey around the hotel.

This project was supervised by the University of Pennsylvania with the collaboration of many other universities around the world. Form 1956 to 1969, 113 scientists worked in the Tikal Project, making it one of the longest archeological projects in the western hemisphere. ... more   less
