Summer Trip – Cancun, Mexico Day 1!
After a pick up from Tropical Elite Tours….and a drive up the Mexican coast, we arrived at the Hilton Cancun All-Inclusive Resort. WOW! What a difference from Hilton Tulum All-Inclusive.
In similar fashion we were greeted with a cool towel to wash our hands off and a welcome drink. After a small wait at the front desk, we were pre-checked in, and had to wait for our room to be ready.
The hotel was bustling…lots of people, families and children everywhere! Quite the difference from Tulum’s serene and peaceful environment. We grabbed a quick bite at the poolside bar and grill, Sunan, and got changed the pool.
The kids immediately got lost in waterpark…filled with waterslides and gun, a dunking machine and obstacle course. Just after 3pm the sun moved to the back of the resort…and while it was still warm and breezy it was nice to be out of the beating sun, and constant need to lather up in sunscreen.
We also found La Churreria – an UNLIMITED ice cream, churro, popcorn and sweets restaurant…located near the waterpark and filled with YUMMY treats all day long!
Lunch and dinner reservations are harder to come by at Hilton Cancun All-Inclusive Resort. With the resort jam packed, reservations are limited to 5pm or 10pm, and we did NOT prep in advance. We chose dinner via Room Service…and while it was only 15 minutes late, the food was not brought up in a hot box and was luke warm to be generous.
While my daughter was eating, I went ahead and order more food for a 9pm delivery, and this time, the temperature was better!
Our room was large and spacious, with two queen beds, a large dining table…modern bathroom with a glass wall (no privacy!!) and huge flat screen TV. A beautiful ocean front balcony topped it off with lounge chairs and a view of the waterpark, main pool and gulf of Mexico.
After another day of travel and sun it was an early bed time, but ready to check out more of what Hilton Cancun All-Inclusive Resort had to offer with it’s many activities, dining and sun.
