I visited this resort October 4-7, 2019. I honestly don’t have many positive things to say about this resort. It is not a 5 star resort as advertised by any means! Maybe 2 or 2.5 stars. We arrived at Cancun airport around 3pm and took a private van transfer to Puerto Juarez where we caught the ferry to get to the island. In total I believe it was about $70 for two people which I believe is the cheapest you will find for a private round-trip transfer. We always use USA transfers when we go to the Cancun airport. We walked from the ferry to the hotel, which only takes a few minutes, but we stopped and looked at the vendors selling items while walking to the resort. If you have a lot of luggage I suggest taking a taxi to the resort because the roads are rugged and very bumpy. Believe it or not, this is the nicest resort in North Isla Mujeres, and that’s not saying much. The other resorts, Mia Reef & Ixchel looked even more worn down and in dire need of renovations than Privilege did. The North part of the island looked very old and poverty stricken. Some areas looked very suspect. There are nicer resorts once you go south to central Isla Mujeres.
Check in was easy, they give you a glass of rose, which honestly wasn’t that bad. We ended up drinking that throughout our stay. They give you the wrist bands for your all inclusive package, if you chose that. They asked us what we were celebrating, and we told them our 2 year anniversary. I don’t even understand why they ask you that
