Super expensive in general, you probably are thinking oh this seems to be like an exotic experience staying inside of the Tikal natural park! Well, it is not lol, the food is terrible the bartender does have any idea on how to prepare a drink, the customer service is meh for not to say bad, better? I'd recommend staying at Flores where you'll have better options in terms of Hotels, restaurants, and bars with good prices and better food.

This was one of the highlights of our trip! What a fantastic place to stay. The room was spotless (no bugs or spiders as some other posts had indicated) and comfortable. We loved the privacy from our room and deck and that we got to wake up to the sound of the jungle every morning. There is not a lot of sound proofing as the windows are a screen so you can hear the restaurant and late arrivals but it is well worth it for the airflow and waking up to the sound of birds and howler monkeys! The restaurant is beautiful, the staff are lovely and the food is okay. We spend 3 days at the lodge and by the end I was a little tired of the menu. That being said it is amazing the menu is so large and food is as good as it is given the location...I mean you are right in the jungle! The pool was lovely and not too busy. I enjoyed taking a dip after exploring the park and then ordering a margarita from the pool bar and basking in the sun...truly heaven! We watched the spider monkeys play in the trees every day...we even saw a mom and baby which was so special! Definitely do the tours! We did the sunrise and sunset tour, both were amazing. We had Cesar for the sunset tour and unfortunately I cannot remember our guides name from the sunrise tour but both were equally knowledgeable and enthusiastic. For the sunrise tour, our guide even hike with coffee for us so we could enjoy it after watching the sunrise! We did get to see the sunset however it was drizzling on the morning on the sunrise tour but it was still well worth it to see the jungle waking up. Amazing staff, place and experience!

We LOVED our stay at the Jungle Lodge. The surroundings are beautiful, the people are unbelievably friendly, and the room was amazing. We felt incredibly lucky to be staying at such a beautiful location. The bed was great too and the toiletries smelled amazing. Only downside was the poor water pressure in the shower, but one cannot have everything. If you have the chance to stay at this hostal or the hotel - go for it! We had a room with a private bathroom. If you are staying here, book the sunrise tour with Tony as your guide. You will beat the crowd from Flores and will have a quiet moment before the big group from Flores comes in and everyone in that group starts unpacking their backpacks noisily (We personally felt the number or people on the temple should be restricted and everyone should be obliged to leave their backpacks with their guides at the bottom of the stairs. The noise everyone made with their zippers was so loud that we could not hear the howler monkeys anymore (and they are loud!!)). The hotel has a swimming pool, which is kind of great too, because it’s a funny feeling to be staying in the jungle and being able to hop into a swimming pool. We saw tukans, spiders monkeys, parrots, and beautiful butterflies - all while staying at the Jungle Lodge. Dive into their magical jungle world - You won’t regret it!!

The obvious pro is that this place is right next to the entrance to Tikal. Rooms are decently appointed. Bathrooms are clean if you’re the first to use it after housekeeping otherwise the other guests are quite dirty. They don’t seem to check emails after 5pm so I had to pay extra to arrange private transport the next day. Then they gave me the worst room right next to the restaurant, when I checked in relatively early. You will not get any peace and quiet until after 11pm. You won’t get soothing jungle noises, all you’ll get are loud Europeans talking at dinner. Again this seems to be a common theme in Guatemala, that Asian travelers like me are discriminated against in terms of room assignment.

Hello Milty908, we are sorry to hear about this but we don’t chose your room based on your race, we select rooms based on what is available at the time you make your reservation. Hope this didn’t affect your experience in the park however. Best regards!

So exiting to wake up in the middle of the night to roars of howler monkeys, First thought it was jaguars before heart rate returned to normal. Really great tours with great guides. Clean and nice establishment, Very friendly and helpful staff. Good drinks and food. Only bad was getting an extra lunch by some other guest on our tab. It was finally solved, but unneccessary. Suggest they start to ask to see room key before registering tabs. Anyway, we strongly recommend staying here, lovely place!
