This beautiful hotel will be the preferred resort for the Furcht wedding, and where the bride and groom will be staying for the week. We do advise that if you are not a guest at Privilege Aluxes you will not be allowed on property. There are other resorts available on the island if you wish to stay at a different hotel. If you plan on bringing your kids, Ixchel Beach Hotel, Mia Reef or Hotel Secreto are kid friendly. We suggest reviewing websites like TripAdvisor, Booking.com and Expedia to shop the best deals. All-inclusive options are available as well.
Although there is a ton to do within walking distance from the hotel, renting a golf cart is a fun option for exploring the island! Taxis are available as well, but if you'd like to rent a golf cart during your stay, there are several places that you can rent from that will cost approximately $60-$70 per day. They will require you to leave a driver 's license for the deposit. Some rental companies allow you to book in advance if you prefer.
