Summer Trip – Cancun, Mexico Day 2!
Ok! We got this down! There’s definitely a learning curve here at Hilton Cancun All-Inclusive Resort, but after some investigation and talking to staff, it makes your stay more enjoyable.
I got up early, around 7am, and headed down to the main pool area. Scouted out some lounge chairs under a tree and it a good location to view both the ocean AND the kids. After placing some fresh towels on the lounge chairs along with a few personal articles (nothing of value!) I secured out pool location for the day.
Breakfast was Room Service….arriving 10 minutes prior to the scheduled time, and HOT today! Waffles, French Toast, local pastries, hot tea and fruit. Yum!
Also, I stopped by the Dining desk to secure a dinner reservation for day 2 and 3, to make sure we weren’t left to poolside popcorn and Room Service every day! Luckily, La Luce had a reservation open for both nights, a restaurant we had tried at Hilton Tulum All Inclusive and loved!
We spent most of the day enjoying the pool, water park and ocean. The kids made friends with others and had a blast going wild! The Pool Bar had drinks flowing…and there’s a pool side BBQ stand with Hamburgers, Shrimp Skewers and Fries.
After a long day in the water, we sat OCEANSIDE at La Luce…a view you couldn’t duplicate! With the cool breeze, warm balmy temperature and friendly staff, we were in for a delicious dinner.
The menu at La Luce included hand tossed pizza in the custom, wood-fired oven, minestrone soup, spaghetti pomodoro and grilled salmon, all delicious!
Post dinner activities included a walk on the beach….which was lovely, but filled with a TON of seaweed and somewhat deceiving from the pictures on the Hilton Cancun All-Inclusive Resort website. I had envisioned a long expansive broad beach with easy to access water for exploring. Instead the water is murky, filled with seaweed and hard to reach. Check out the photo comparisons:
Evening activities across the resort included a live Mariachi, local vendor craft show, specialty drinks served in the main lobby and nighttime ice cream delights in La Chuerrria. While this resort does seem more commercialized than Hilton Tulum All Inclusive, the term ALL INCLUSIVE really means ALL INCLUSIVE!
