“Pretty!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2013

Such a romantic spot. Food was delicious and prices were not so bad.

We really enjoyed the surf and turf for two. This was on the Vday menu...not sure if this is available every day...but it was the best meal we had all vacation!

Thank you for your review! We really appreciate the feedback as it allows us to keep improving. The Surf & Turf is part of our regular menu, though the version you had on Valentine's Day did have some extras. We are glad you enjoyed your visit and hope to see you again soon.

“An experience and Good food! Loved it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2013

I got to eat here last time I was in Playa and it was great! Really fun getting to explore a cave while we waited for our food to be prepared. It goes on and on with party rooms and dining areas! The staff was wonderful and the food was delicious! Definitely make a point to eat here next time your in Playa!

“Fantastic facilities”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013

Eating dinner in a cenote is definitely an experience! The facilities are fantastic and make sure you walk around and look at the place. The food is approved but at that price I can not unfortunately give it more than approved. The service is also accepted but not more than that. Since Alux is located a bit outside the city, you have to take a taxi there which also means that the total price for your dinner gets pretty loud. But the experience did anyway so we thought it was worth the money.

“Total Love”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

Very amazing! It's a giant underground cavern, with many smaller caverns inside. You can eat in the main cavern or get for an extra fee a small private cavern with table and sitting place. Food is awesome, we were 6 people and choose 6 different plates. It was so good that we ended up shring all the plates. I would return anytime!
