DO NOT STAY HERE!!!

We were supposed to have a room with oceanview and that did not happen. Had to wait until after check in time to get in our room. They were not very accomodating. Could not control temperature in room and froze during the night as there were not extra blankets. And in looking for the blankets got dripped from water dripping from the ceiling which made the floor to the bathroom and the exit door very slippery. When you take a shower you were standing in 1-2 inches of water plus the water smelled. Did not get you clean! Beds were very hard and uncomfortable. There was no clock in room. We were very disappointed in hotel and will NEVER stay or recommed to anybody to stay there.

Location..Location...Location!

The hotel is on a beautiful stretch of beach! The staff was fabulous. It is located on the Hotel Zone and you can walk to La Isla and Plaza Flamingos shopping centers, with a convenience store. Your room has a small fridge and perfect for drinks. I ate lunch on their restaurant on the beach and it was quite good and reasonable with a great view...what more can I say and look forward to my next stay!

NYX Hotel review

The best beach on the whole strip. I am a runner and ran many miles up and down the beach. NYX had the best beach by far. Cleaned every morning and one of the few hotels with palm trees on its beach. And not to crowded. Very authentic style mexican style with updated amenities.

Below Average

Hotel was just average. Staff not helpful or accommodating at all. Rooms were very dirty and sticky floors. Bathrooms really old. 2 towels in 2 bedroom Suite. Not worth $200 in peak season.

Hotel is in the process of remodeling. No updates posted by management online. Very inconvenient walkways. Elderly people MUST not choose this hotel-you will suffer. Management is trying hard but cannot succeed due to misunderstanding of simple business concept-if the hotel 1/4 booked offer the best you have; otherwise people will never come back. Will not stay at this hotel! Will not recommend. Also, alleged bed bugs! Buyer beware!

Great staff, Clean rooms!

Hotel lobby is being upgraded and it looks like it will be great and modern. Rooms need upgrading but they are very clean and for the price you can't beat it. You can easily walk from the pool to the beach (20 steps). Free parking!

Wonderful, Friendly Staff, Very Clean Enviroment

When we arrived we were unable to get 2 rooms side by side & was offered a 2 bdrm suite at no extra charge! The staff was all very polite, profession & most everyone spoke English. Rooms were very clean but a bit in need of updating. Our kitchenette was basic stocked along with a hot plate, fridge & microwave. Views from the living room & master bedroom are beautiful. Repeat the rooms were kept perfectly clean & we never saw 1 bug; not even an ant & that is amazing when in the Tropics. There was a parking garage with easy access & plentty of security at all times. The breakfast buffet was delicious with a big variety of food. Prices were typical for a resort area. Very easy access to shopping & restaurants. Buses run 24 hrs if you do not rent a car. There was one issue that was very upsetting to me. We have a family friend who lives in Cancun now. He grew up across the street from us & is one of my son's best friends. I have always treated him as one of my children. He was not allowed to come to our suite to visit. We had to meet with him in the salon with no privacy and we couldn't even drink water in the salon. I was offered to talk to the Manager but my husband & our friend asked me not to force the issue. Other than that one issue everything was great at the hotel.

Entertainment tip: Short drive from hotel

Take the Captain Hook cruise! It was fantastic. It is a show, meal & party boat all rolled into one. Sail away on a Spanish Galleon. Check different places for a price. We were given a $50 range in price depending on who was trying to sell us tickets. They will pick up at hotels. Get ready to tip everywhere. Even the young baggers at Wal-Mart work on tips only but usually 5-10 pesos is customary. (about .50 - $1.)
