I stayed at the Avalon Grand (Hotel NYX) June 8 – 15th. Being a timeshare owner I was disappointed that we can no longer stay at the Avalon Reef Club on Isla Mujeres. I was in Cancun to attend my friend’s graduation from Universidad del Caribe. Overall the property appeared to be the same as I remember from my last visit in 2009. I noticed some workers painting the outside of the building – it was a terrible yellow color with blue trim. Definitely gonna stand out! The studio I had was on the pool level so I didn’t have to navigate a bunch of steps. The room was huge. The bed was fine and all the linens were clean and in good shape. AC worked like a charm with no leaking or loud noises. The mini kitchen had a working microwave, blender and toaster but they only provided 4 coffee cups and 4 drinking glasses. No plates or utensils were included in the room. The shower had hot water but I had to wait for about 5 minutes for it to warm up. Once it was warmed up, the water was HOT! I used the complimentary wi-fi each day in the lobby. The inside bar opened at 3 pm each day and service was good. I did not eat at the Avalon so I can’t comment on the food. Tacun, a great little place to eat was just right down the hill from the Avalon. I had tacos al pastor and chilaquiles; great prices, great service and excellent food. The pool and beach at the Avalon was wonderful. The front desk employees were efficient and professional but they could’ve been a little more personable. The only thing I didn’t like was getting one of those stupid wrist bands stuck on my arm for the week. Across the street at the Flamingo Plaza I bought water and supplies. I guess the only thing I could ask for the Avalon to change would be to provide drinking water in the rooms. It was a pain to drag bottles of water from across the street to my room each day. I think the rooms in the hotel part/street side of the property must be in bad shape from reading some posts on here. If you can get a studio or room on the beach side I think you'll be better off.
