Planning a trip to Cancun? Complete Hilton Cancun Hotel Review

Cancun, Mexico is a top vacation destination from travelers from all over the globe. With beautiful beaches, cuisine, and world class resorts, Cancun is a great place to enjoy a beautiful and warm weather vacation year round. There are tons of accommodations in Cancun to choose from but there are many great reasons to book a stay at the Hilton for an unforgettable getaway. See below for the full hotel review.


The best way to book a Hilton property is to do so directly on their website so you can earn loyalty points and status. Even better, be sure to book a stay with a Hilton co branded American Express Card to maximize your booking and earning potential. The best Hilton credit card is the Hilton Aspire (Click referral link for 150,000 sign up points!) which gets you top tier elite status, upgrades, and other perks!

LOCATION The resort is located in Cancun's Hotel Zone and is only a 20 minute drive from Cancun International Airport. Being close to the airport allows you to maximize your stay in paradise. The property is South of downtown Cancun meaning it is more secluded and away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Cancun. It is also closer to other Mexico must visit destinations like Cozumel, Playa del Carmen, and Tulum. This isolated resort is a perfect place to escape and enjoy a relaxing and fun getaway. THE PROPERTY Located on 100 acres of coastline, the secluded resort features everything on property and you don't ever need to leave. The All Inclusive property features 12 dining options including 5 especially fine dining restaurants. There is a large gym and spa as well. Enjoy the neighboring Waldorf Astoria Spa for a luxurious wellness retreat. Whether you choose the beach or the pool, you are covered! There are pools for everyone including an adult infinity pool as well as a family fun pool with slides and fountains.

ROOMS AND SUITES The rooms face both the Ocean and the Tropical Jungle so you will get a nice view in either direction. The rooms are bright and airy and have beautiful luxury finishes. My favorite rooms are the swim up rooms where you can hop into your own private pool directly from your door! Of course, the higher floors also have balconies offering beautiful views.

DINING There are great dining options on property from quick serve options including snacks for casual food to the five specialty restaurants on property. There is something for everyone from Auma the open fire mixed grill to La Luce for wood fire pizza and Mediterranean classics. All of the restaurants and bars are designed with chic and luxurious interiors and there is no shortage of places to grab a cocktail.

ACTIVITIES All Inclusive resorts provide everything you need on property so you don't need to leave. There are beach activities and sports or crafts and classes to partake in during the day. As the sun sets the party starts as you can enjoy the nightly entertainment with live music and performances. There is a Kids Club for children 4-12 so there is a safe and friendly place for your kids to enjoy while you enjoy adult time. Additionally, there is aTeen Zone as well where your kids can chill out with music, tv, board games, pool, and ping pong tables. There are tons of daytime activities for the teens as well.

OVERALL If you are looking for an adult getaway or a family fun vacation, the Hilton Cancun has you covered. There is so much to do on property that you will never want to leave. Of course, if you want to go on some adventures, there are amazing destinations and beaches just a short drive away!
