We made the Quinta Chanabnal our base while exploring Palenque and the nearby Lacandon Jungle. Spent here 2 nights but could have easily stayed a bit longer. What an amazing place. We loved everything of it. The staff was super helpful, always there to assist. The food was good too. We came right before the start of the holiday season so it was not very busy. We prefer quiet and peace so this place was ideal for us as it only has a few rooms. We stayed at a Deluxe Suite and everything was perfect, they prepared it with an extra bed to accommodate my two boys. We loved the Mayan architecture throughout the grounds. Its proximity to the Palenque archaeological site. My kids really enjoyed the lush gardens and pools and specially looking for the hauler monkey(s) which can be hear often, specially at night - makes you feel you are in an oasis in the middle of the jungle and adds to the excitement of the place. Will definitely stay here again...

Room Tip: Deluxe Suite

The hotel is beautiful! The style reminded me of an Indiana Jones' movie.
The rooms are beautiful decorated , with a very delicate Mayan style, the garden with the lakes and pool are just out of this world. The staff is very helpful and friendly.

AMAZED, love!!! Great place. Loved it...
We stayed for only 3 night but wished it was longer. We chose this hotel because its great central location the Archaeological sights.
I hardly ever give a 5 in my reviews but this an amazing hotel so it well deserves a 10 if this was an option. Now, keep in mind it is not cheap!! This hotel is just amazingly beautiful from the very first moment you drive into this property. This is place is so impressive, I don’t even know where to start.
The vegetation as you enter this hidden gem is so really very welcoming. The decor is just beautiful, the attention to details is incredible: The room we stayed was so very spacious, the bathroom was big and everything was always very cleaned. Great amenities, toiletries and even bath robes were provided by the hotel each day. The room had a little fridge with water, juices and some beers available to the customer, free of charge (well, included in your rate ). They also had a welcome basket with lots of tropical fruits like mangos, bananas etc. The hotel surrounding in the middle of the jungle are just breath taking. The lobby/restaurant is cozy and the food was so good we ate all 3 nights we stayed there. I ordered pasta and this was outstanding. The pasta was always homemade, tasty their meat dishes were also very tasty and their dessert even better. They also have a really nice pool facing a lake and surrounded by wild plants/flowers. The water was cold but I guess given the heat it is the right option. This hotel is home to a family of howler monkey (father, mom and their babies) which at times get some bananas from the hotel itself but be careful they are still wild and free animals.

The owner, Rafael, was there in the first day to greet us along with his staff who welcome us with big umbrellas given the big rain happening at the time we check in (Yes, lots of rain, so I heard June is not the best month to visit). The owner always took the time to talk to us either to make sure we were happy or to just provide us some insight knowledge on the Maya culture. He is a very helpful, knowledgeable and passionate about this area. They even took the time to send us an email to let us know we had left a travel pillow behind which belong to my son. They said they could mail back to our destination, now, how nice is that!
The one recommendation I would give for them is to work on the WIFI. The connection did not work at all in the rooms but it did work in their cozy restaurant. It is the only thing I can think of needs to be improved.
Despite the little internet problem, I would stay here in a heartbeat, what a wonderful place and people. I felt better than home.

Room Tip: Room #4 and #1 were very nice. Room #4 was really big

This hotel is one of the nicest places we have ever stayed in. Built to look like a Mayan structure, luxurious inside and surrounded by tropical gardens. Rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean. The restaurant is great and the food delicious. One the day we left before the restaurant was open for breakfast, fresh coffee was available and a good packed lunch was provided. The hotel is in a great location for visiting Mayan archeological sites, but don't forget to make time to enjoy the gardens and pool. You'll see lots of birds, iguanas and monkeys. Fantastic. The service is really good too, with staff speaking excellent English. I'd go back tomorrow if I could.

Room Tip: We stayed in the deluxe suite and it was great

The Chanabnal Boutique Hotel is nested in a piece of a tropical land. Modern and New (7 years old). It offers all the amenities of a luxury hotel in a cosy way. Only 8 rooms, spacious and very well decorated, awaits you on the road to the famous Maya pyramids from Palenque city. The italo-german owner has created a nice retreat with a very welcoming quaint swimming pool and a delicious restaurant. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and helpful (kuddos to Will and Lucy). The hotel is outside town but they are working with a safe taxi company and try to call the more reliable drivers from this company. Our stay was during the shoulder season so the hotel was not full and they didn't hesitate to upgrade our room. The hotel is concerned with preserving the local flora and fauna. The week we stayed we were able to see a monkey couple with their little newly born kid. Many big lezards and regional parrots (guacamaya)...

Room Tip: Deluxe Suite is great.
