Priviege Aluxes, Best Value
BOOKING: Booked with Orbitz, best value and easy to use site, also booked ground transportation with The Grey Line for tansportation from the airport to the ferry, this was very affordable round trip option. Ferry ride at site was $3 per person, Taxi on Isla Mujeres was $3 to any location.
CHECKIN: Explained that we were staying for a week, reception stated they did not have our reservation. I gave them a copy of my Orbitz paperwork, Piviege Aluxes gave us a wet towel to freshen up and glasses of champagne and snacks, while this was happening the check in peolpe gave a room and said not to worry.
ROOM: All rooms are new, very high quality finish in the room and the entire resort. The bed was just right for us, not to hard but somewhat firm. Flat screen TV, frig; large bathroom with an unbelievable shower, on the balcony there was a two peson jetted hot tub. No charge 24 hour room service, sweet! Great ocean view for boat watching to fantastic sun sets. Room is very quite, no outside noise from anything.
FOOD: I do not have the culinary vocabulary to describe the great meals we had. PA has a meal experience which occurs at each meal, unbelieable. Taste and flavors experienced for the first time and I've started vacationing since the 1970's. I am 59 and this is the best dinning expeience I've ever had. Best value is the all inclusive option. I never had a problem when I ordered off menu or added items to the meal experience.
DRINKS: PA uses premium alcohol, bar tenders are very knowledgeable, and no lines because to always bring beverages before you get up.
EMPLOYEES: All employees are very friendly and have a smile and a have a geat day, always making you feel very special. Best service we have ever received.
TIPS: Employees are never looking for a tip, I tipped the room person one dollar per day, also tried to tip the frig person a dollar a day, the frig person never took the tip. Tipped the evening meal five dollars. The day before we left tipped all waiters and servers ten to fifteen dollars.
RESORT: Superior location on Beach North. I think the only resort with waiters serving drinks and snacks on the beach; with padded lounge chairs. PA has a restaurant on the beach, bathrooms, showers, and a full bar. To get service just raise your hand, unbelievable, sometimes if your finished drink a new one is given before asking, sweet! There was never a drink line. The overall resort has a very high quality finish. Great pools, with servers for drinks, snacks, and meals, this is great luxury. The main dinning options are available inside or outside. No reservations required, no wait for a table, fantastic service. Shade options are available everywhere. PA has a chair guy on the beach to care for your things when you leave your lounge chair to swim, walk the beach, or have a meal at one of the restaurants. Great island music through out the resort. Dinning options available on the beach included with the all inclusive program.
LOCATION: Located on Beach North the best beach on Isla Mujeres. There is a very short walk to the town center for shopping and entertainment. The Isla Mujeres is very safe day or nightband the people are very friendly, everybody waving and offering a smile. Vendors are not pushy on the beach or in town, great values to be had.
THE TOWEL GAME: There is no towel game at the PA. They have more than enough needed equipment through out the resort.
SPA: Full service spa with great people working on the beach and at the Spa within the resort. They have a fitness room with equipment but I only looked at this from the outside, no lines anywhere on the resort.
CONSTRUCTION: No construction visable from the outside, also no noise heard from workers fine tuning the resort. Within the next 30 days another restaurant will be available.
CHECK OUT: Remember the no reservations on file at check in, Privilege Aluxes never mentioned this again and solved the problems without bothering us. Checkout was very fast and easy.
LIKED MOST: room, shower, two person jetted hot tub, meals, drinks, snacks, employees. Privilege Aluxes has a very active mamagement teams tending to the details making sure gueats have the highest luxury stay available. There were no extra charges for anything except the massage at a fantastic value.
LIKED LEAST: leaving
