Summer Trip-Tulum, Mexico Day 2!
WATER WATER WATER….! Day 2 during our stay at Hilton Tulum, Riviera Maya All-Inclusive was filled with water.
After a pre-arranged breakfast from Room Service we headed outdoors!
The resort has multiple pools, two expansive infinity pools in front of the main building where you’ll have poolside food and beverage service….plenty of lounge chairs and no fighting over umbrellas! The staff was extremely friendly when we wanted to move a few chairs into some shade, and they brought over extra towels for the kids. Not to mention the resort is ocean FRONT, overlooking the beautiful expansive ocean, gentle waves and tropical sounds of birds and wildlife.
The main pools are a buzz during the day, with lots of action and upbeat music playing in the background. The resort also has an activities team that facilitates salsa dancing lessons, nighttime karaoke, beach volleyball and live entertainment. Poolside lunch for us included Shrimp Ceviche, Guacamole and chips, Popcorn Chicken and almost TOO delicious Miami Vice! If you ask the F&B staff, “Que Bueno?” they will bring you a surprise yummy concoction.
Aside from the main pool there are several more private pools scattered across the resort in front of each “Casa.” Since we’ve been staying in Casa 2, it’s been easy to walk into the resorts main area OR stay “local” at the pool right outside of our room door. Beverage service is available at each smaller pool, so you could literally spend the whole day relaxing.
As you move south on the property, in front of the Casas, is a large semi-enclosed ocean lagoon. The kids and I ventured FAR out! Or what we would call FAR living in the Las Vegas desert…..and STILL the water was only knee deep. The was an amazing chance for the kids to get used to the ocean, snorkel with large schools of fish and enjoy the ALMOST HOT ocean water, it was great!
Dinner was Italian…on the ocean view patio with a warm breeze and sounds of live music coming from the main pool area. Chilled cucumber soup, watermelon salad, fresh mozzarella pizza, fusilli pasta with vegetables roasted Sea Bass rounded out our meal. Desert was passionfruit flan with homemade Biscotti.
An after dinner dip in the pool next to our room ended the day on a very relaxed but fun note. With a son who’s sensitive to temperatures and textures, it’s appreciated that the pool and kept at such a warm temperature. They didn’t want to get out, but eventually we got them to pass-out and refuel for another day!
