We just spent 11 days seeing Guatemala. As Mayan history and culture is my passion the Tikal and its vicinity portion was paramount. Thank goodness we chose 3 nights at this fantastic property. Yes, the rooms are super nice even with limited nighttime electricity. Yes, you are mere steps to the Park entrance allowing a bit of cheating on entry...

The Jungle Lodge is only a few steps away from the entrance to the Tikal National Park and the famous Mayan ruins, and is truly a gem in the jungle. It was great to rest in the comfortable beds after hours of walking in the park. The restaurant had excellent food, which was fortunate as there weren't many options. The...

The location of this hotel is brilliant - almost right beside the Mayan archaeological site of Tikal. You are in the heart of sub-tropical rainforest and sitting on your verandah outside your bungalow you can see quetzals, toucans, monkeys and parrots - and lots more. You can walk in to the archaeological site ( after buying a ticket of course!)...

Good, comfortable rooms and very clean bathrooms. Nice pool area where you can get food and drinks. It is the closest hotel to the entrance of the ruins. Only drawback is the restaurant is pricy, and you are pretty much stuck with it as the only place to eat unless you walk to the other hotels but the prices there...

We stayed here on two separate occasions overnight so as to visit the Tikal ruins, and on return from the Cayo district, Belize. It is of course, in the jungle and while the rooms are adequately provisioned(all appear to be individual chalets), the electricity is by generator only and is on only for a few hours evening and mid-morning. They...

We spent one night at this very basic hotel - the electricity is only on during certain hours - 7:00 am to 10:00 am and then again about 5:00 pm until 9:30 pm. There is no hot water during the times it is off. It was cool enough - high 60s - while we were there and there was no...

Lovely large room, though it was referred to as junior room. Like new. Just walking the grounds is like a garden walk. Delightful staff. A few notes about Tikal planning; we had done little. Plan to be unplugged. We had no cell service. Electricity is only on 8 hrs, except 24 hrs for fan and one outlet we used to...

We stayed here one night during our visit to Tikal. It was a perfect location, directly outside the entrance to the park. We visited the park for several hours, then relaxed by the pool. Dinner was very good, and the accommodations were very comfortable. The hotel only had electricity from 5 to 10pm. We took the sunrise tour which began...

The rooms are quite basic but beds were comfy. The food is quite expensive for what it is, but there are a couple of other options around. The pool is a nice touch, nice to laze around and listen to the jungle. We stayed here because we wanted to do a sunrise tour of the ruins, which was a lot...

Official Description (provided by 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
