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...

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...

This hotel is not the best, but ok. They bring they're children to work everyday, and its many of them. Hotel closes down at 23:00 every night so you have to knock on the door if you are coming home "late". The staff is not the best. We traveled with a travel agency from norway (star tour) on a cheap...

We were happy with the one night stay overall. We got the special rate of $35 a night. The room was clean but the water doesn't get very warm in the shower. We had a quiet night and near 5 Ave. and that's what we wanted. I appreciated that they had filtered water available to fill up our bottles.

The place is well located: a walking distance from the beach and right nearby the main street, yet far enough to avoid the noise at night. The staff was very nice and welcoming. The hotel is charming also simple. The room was clean and comfortable. The only negative element are the thin walls; we could hear the people next room...

The almost hidden Alux hotel has extremely nice people working there, always willing to help. The structure is peculiar, having all the rooms overlooking a small central patio.

I stayed here in December 2010 while I was taking scuba lessons in Playa. Alux was a great little hotel off the main strip, so it's very quiet at night but close enough to the town center that I felt very safe walking back and forth by myself every night. The accommodations were simple and very clean, and a great...
