This was actually May 2010, my sister, my husband and I flew into Cancun, and were en route to Sarteneja, Belize. I'd heard so much about Playa we stopped here at Aluz. Reservations were made in advance and the service was excellent. The building was charming, spotless but inviting and it comes with a resident peacock. The hotel is very...

My Fiance and I stayed for a long weekend in Playa. This hotel is a hidden gem. The price is excellent for the clean rooms and the lovely people who own this charming hotel. It is a few minutes walk to the boardwalk. The air conditioning is wonderful and everything is very clean. I would recommend it to anyone ;)...

I chose this hotel for budget reasons and location. It was only a few blocks walking distance to 5th avenue, beaches, nightlife, etc and I felt very safe walking at night alone. The rooms were clean and simple yet charming with mexican flare. The showers always had hot water but it would always overflow onto the bathroom floor. The window...

Staying at Hotel Alux was a great experience. It is 3 blocks off the beach and super close to restaurants and shopping. I have stayed in Playa del Carmen many times - this was my first time at Alux and it is a great budget hotel. I would stay again.
