A real maxican hotel runned by a family. It's a budget hotel but the personnel is very friendly and the quality of service and the rooms are very good . They don't speak alot of English but you will manage. One tip just get used to the Mexican ways. The hotel is 50m from the tourist area.

I have used the Hotel Alux for overnight stays in Cancun for many years and always found it a good value and good location when I am traveling by ADO bus. This was my first visit at Alux in Playa del Carmen and pleased with my choice. The location was ideal for my needs since I was traveling by ADO... More

Very clean, great hot water and water pressure in shower. Pretty bare bones in the room but didn't spend much time in there anyway. Staff very friendly; not much English spoken. Water cooler. A/C. Small bed for two people. Our room was on the ground level; would have preferred higher floor but none available.

Small family owned and operated. Clerk was busy breast feeding baby and taking care of a litter of young ones who roam the bottom floor. No English speaking staff. No breakfast or coffee available. Rooms are not very well cleaned, and provide very little storage. Hair and sand left in the shower from previous guests. Toilet did not get cleaned... More

Had to change the room after two nights because of the smell of mould and room had no balcony no view, dark, could hardly open the window, no space for that because of the other building so close. Room was cleaned every day and towels and sheets changed. Hot water on & off, sometimes had... More

Looks a little different from the outside, doesn't look like a hotel at all. But the rooms are pretty good. Clean, good shower. Staff was pretty helpful and nice. It's about a 5 min walk from Coco Bongo's (night club), and all the other main clubs and bars. All the main nightlife is within 5 min's walking. There are a... More

Found this hotel by accident when I was picking up my car rental. Booked it in my phone and paid only half (44 USD) of what the hotel rates are if you book directly in the hotel. Love the location, 2 blocks away from the nightclubs, restaurants, and tourist hangeouts. The ocean is about 4 blocks away, but seems closer... More

Stayed at Hotel Alux at the beginning and end of our recent anniversary trip to MX. It is very clean, the staff friendly and helpful, and a bargain price! It is very close walking distance to beach and 5th Ave activities but quiet at night. We were also able to walk from and to main bus stop and Collectivo stop... More

I spent a night here with a few cycling friends while we regrouped before our cycling adventure around this part of Mexico and Belize. The hotel was nice and clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. They allowed us space to assemble our bikes and also allowed us to keep our bikes safely in our rooms over night. They... More
