Chan-Kah Resort Village
Ranked #6 of 34 Hotels in Palenque
Reviewed 9 December 2013

The bungalows at Chan-Kah are roomy, with lots of space for luggage. The facilities were a little aged, but the room was clean and comfortable. The porch at the back, equipped with rocking chairs and table, was quiet and private, and we were able to watch some of the local wildlife passing through - it was like sitting on your own in the jungle!

The resort seemed quiet when we were there, and we were able to walk around the grounds without encountering many people, and pretty much had the large swimming pool to ourselves.

The restaurant has a fairly extensive menu for dinner, lunch and snacks, although breakfast choices are limited. The waiters were generally helpful, although they did insist on one evening that our small group placed our breakfast orders the night before! The portions were a good size, and the food was reasonable.

Our room was quite far away from reception, and also from the restaurant. This was not a problem for us, although it did rain heavily on one occasion when we were going to eat, so if there is a danger of rain, make sure you have an umbrella or ask for a room closer to the restaurant!

The resort is only a few minutes away from the ruins at Palenque.

This was a great hotel!
We had a bungalow with two rockers and a table on the porch!
While relaxing from our visit at Palenque, we rocked, drank Dos Equis and watched monkey play in the trees!
The swimming pool was made be damming a natural spring!
The water was a little cold for me!
We asked our waiter at the hotel what he would order and that's what we order and It was very good!

A hotel which is located in the jungle of Palenque and is made up of a series of bungalows, nicknamed Jungalows due to their location.

The Jungalows were more than adequate and were very comfortable despite being in a jungle. They contain electric, A/C, TV, comfortable beds and private bath/showers.

The surroundings are spectacular as are the communal areas of the hotel. The Palenque ruins are 5 minutes drive away and the main town 10 minutes drive.

There are occasional bugs but that is to be expected in the jungle. There were also lots of lizards and Iguanas to be seen. Despite hearing monkeys I didn't see any.

Breakfast was included with the room and was of a high standard as was the evening meals sampled.

The only negative is that the hotel was very quiet and it seemed at times that there were no other guests. This meant that the evenings were quite boring and had I been staying for more than two nights I may have been tempted to head in to Palenque itself which didn't look that appealing as I drove through.

After being inland and staying at some smaller towns with minimal accommodations this was a real treat. Spacious rooms and real beds along with a restaurant with a extensive menu, good food and service.
The pool is fantastic, made even better by the howler monkeys in the back ground and the numerous birds.
Being right outside the gate to the ruins was also a great benefit.

Room Tip: Huge plac so take a little longer walk and get a room on the outside. Security is great so don'...

the jungle setting was very nice, the room was good,the food and drink was way way way overpriced and the tour operator next to the reception desk is a massive rip off, i booked an english speaking tour guide for 80 .u.s and he said the transportation and entry fees were included. the next day the tour guide showed up on foot and said the guy i booked the tour with will drive us to palenque for an extra fee of 20 u.s, then i had to also pay for both entry fees and after only seeing half of the palenque site the guide said i can do the rest of the tour for an additional price....ripped off at palenque and chan kah

Room Tip: stay somwhere else

The jungle setting and appropriate landscaping make this cabin style resort special. A river runs through the property and during our stay it ranged from a quiet babble to a full on torrent. Agoutis, which look like a big guinea pigs, nearby howler monkeys and other wildlife are plentiful and fun to watch. A trip highlight was enjoying a late afternoon wine and cheese with friends on one of our bungalow verandas. It was hard to choose which one.

The property is reasonably large and requires a moderate amount of walking to get around. Paved paths with several bridges, crisscross the property and carry one through the jungle, past a selection of swimming pools styled to look like cenotes to the common areas and resort amenities. Each stroll was a pleasure.

Cabins are pleasant, clean and spacious both inside and outside on a covered veranda. Our party had mechanical issues upon check-in in two of four cabins (AC & hot water). These were corrected efficiently. The key activated cabin electric power box needs to be tricked to assure the AC keeps the cabin cool and dry during absences.

The restaurant and bar are open air, large and well appointed. The facility can clearly handle large groups. The menu is traditional and complete. Prices are upper mid-range and fair. Food quality and presentation is average to very good. I particularly enjoyed the ceviche, breakfast omelets which are excellent and a premium brand margarita. The bar frozen margarita was disappointing. Wait staff is great. They are helpful, fun, capable and sufficiently fluent in English to assist those challenged by Spanish.

Room Tip: Ask to see a property map when you book or check in. The cabins towards the eastern and southern bou...

Despite not being some luxurious spa-fency-chic resort in the middle of nowhere, it is a place with many, many advantages when comparing to some other hotels in Palenque... Before everything - its setting in the jungle, all those animal noices during night, incredible nature and animals walking around and than - charming pool and bungalows (or rooms, if you like to call it that way), good restaurant... all that combined together is a reason why I would be happy to stay here again!

Bungalows are really clean, well maintained. There is so-called electricity box in the room, where you have to stick your key inside if you want to have electricity, but as it is an very old model of device, you can just pick a brunch outside, stick it inside of the device and when you leave the bungalow for a dinner or swimming, your A/C or chargers will remain in use.

Prices in the bar snd restaurant are a bit to high, but they are making great cocktails! You can try to walk to the city center, but in my opinion it's too far - it takes some 40 minutes, better to take taxi (receptionist will call them).
