Privilege Aluxes is a luxury all-inclusive at Playa Norte, Isla Mujeres’ best beach, that receives consistently great reviews, particularly for its staff.
It is a small and intimate resort and can be seen as something of an antidote to the many larger, busier all-inclusives in Cancun.
It has three restaurants and three bars, one a swim-up bar in the main pool, a large, full-service beach club on Playa Norte, and a spa and gym.
It is adults-only, couples mainly, and a solid choice for our list of the best adults-only all-inclusives in Cancun.

Food, Facilities & Things to Do:
You have a choice of three food places at Privilege Aluxes: Sabor, their main international buffet restaurant (which also does a la carte lunches), the Beach Club restaurant, a pool snack bar, and then the Satay restaurant for Thai & Oriental cuisine, the latter requesting reservations.
The food is good overall though some guests have been disappointed by the buffet. Their a la carte is almost always highly rated though.
There are different themed dinner buffets each night at Sabor and, every few days, Mexican barbecue nights down on the beach.
All food is included in the all-inclusive except for the odd premium item, such as lobster, which will be listed on the menu as such.
All drink, except some premium wines, is also all-inclusive. The two main drinking spots are the pool swim-up bar, which is open until 8 pm, and the Beach Club, open until 11.
Privilege Aluxes is not a place for nightlife but guests often start their evening here and then take the very short walk to Isla Mujers’ bar district for a lively night out.
There is a whirlpool by the pool and the small spa, gym, and a nail salon are located nearby. The spa has a steam room, sauna, and thermal showers.
Access to the steam room and sauna is all included, though massage and health and beauty treatments cost extra.
Privilege Aluxes is at the northern end of the little island of Isla Mujeres, about a five-minute walk to the port for the twenty-minute ferry journey back to Cancun.
