Hilton Cancun is a perfect All-Inclusive for those craving luxury, amazing dining options, and stunning scenery. As soon as you enter the grand doors the accommodating staff treat you to drinks and amazing service ensuring the check-in process is speedy and efficient. We instantly fell for our modern and decadent suite featuring plenty of space for families. The turquoise sea views were a huge highlight and we made full use of the separate lounge area and dining table.

The facilities are ideal for family travellers with a fully staffed Kids Club and plethora of activities ensuring little ones have a trip to remember. We loved lounging beside the seafront infinity pools and the kids couldn’t get enough of the exciting splash pad. Their fitness centre is one of the best we’ve seen with a full spin studio and you’ll never run out of things to do when exploring the grounds or the interactive schedule.

Dining options were endless ensuring you could eat something different at every meal if you wished. The impressive buffet gave high quality and plentiful options at breakfast and lunch and our kids always found mouthwatering options that suited their picky palettes. The a la carte restaurants boasted both exceptional ambiance and impeccable service alongside mouthwatering menus. We loved dining seaside and feasting on Asian fare at Sunan the juicy steaks and decadent seafood at Auma, and their irresistible Mexican menu at Maxal.

MaxalDaniel Haddad


Feast on authentic Mexican fare in an intimate and ambient setting at Maxal located in the luxurious Hilton Cancun. Eat lunch at the Taqueria where you can sit poolside and indulge in the famous Al Pastor tacos, and book a cozy booth at the main restaurant for dinner and enjoy the vibrant and colourful decor. We loved trying many of our favourite Mexican dishes and discovering new specialities throughout our meal. The staff were enthusiastic and helpful introducing us to signature cocktails and their favourite options on the menu.

Highlights included the creamy and rich “Tuetano a la Parrilla” Grilled Bone Marrow with Corn Esquites, Tajin and Fresh Cotija Cheese, the refreshing “Camaron Aguachile” Prawns in Lime Juice with Habanero, Passion Fruit, Micro Sprouts, Cilantro and Pickled Red Onion and the insanely tender “Mole de Cafe Oxaqueno” Oaxacan Beef Tenderloin with Coffee and Black Chili Mole and Grilled Sweet Potato.

The kids couldn’t resist the cheesy quesadillas and everything tasted amazing washed down with a ice cold beer or margarita. A must dine spot while staying at Hilton Cancun and perfect for those wanting to sample Mexican fare on their beach holiday.

AumaDaniel Haddad


Auma was definitely one of our favourite dining destinations while staying at Hilton Cancun. The chic and stylish restaurant is ideal for a date night or family dinner during your holiday. We loved the ocean views, tempting open kitchen, and friendly service. We started with a fresh and flavourful Charred Beet Carpaccio and the indulgent Provoleta Asada which was a big hit with the whole family. Their Over Embers NY Strip Steak and Beef Tenderloin were both grilled to perfection and the fresh and tender Rock Shrimp are sure to please all the foodies. Make sure to pair your feast with a bottle of wine and save room for one of their decadent desserts. Ours kids also could not stop raving about the mini beef sliders. A perfect choice if you’re craving quality steaks and fine wine during your holiday.

SunanDaniel Haddad


Enjoy ocean views and mouthwatering inspired fare at Sunan, Hilton Cancun’s alfresco Asian dining destination. We loved that the lively spot was located beside the pool and featured an inviting bar perfect for leisurely lunches. There were a variety of seating options for couples or larger groups and the attentive staff were always quick and friendly ensuring we had a satisfying experience. We loved the varied menu perfect for sharing and the fusion of flavours in each dish.  Start your lunch with a few of their refreshing and vibrant Sushi Rolls and the citrus infused Fish Ceviche. Another favourite was the fall of the bone Pork Ribs and we shared several portions of the perfectly prepared Teppanyaki as a family. A great spot to refuel after a fun filled morning at the beach or pool and great with a few cocktails under the sun.
