The property is obviously undergoing a change in ownership, there’s a lot of construction going on and the place was fairly vacant! The resort restaurants were disappointing the best meal we had was at a neighboring resort! Panama Jack’s! I realize this is most likely their off season but we paid good money!

The room we had, had a wonderful view (286) however we couldnt enjoy it due to construction/ renovations. The food was not as good as it has been in my past 2 visits. Locked out of our room, and the check out lady was very rude and unprofessional.

The main drawback of the Hilton is the upselling and timeshare people and seem to be in many common areas. That being said, the food was great and staff friendly. Our room was always clean and had good amenities (thanks Damaris M.!) and turn service was great too (Manuel K.!) minibar guy (Carlos) always made sure we had plenty of bottle water since that’s all we drank from there. People at the pool seemed to enjoy the games, etc. nightly entertainment was good most nights (we left early some nights when the dancing got repetitive, but the circus night and welcome to Mexico nights were our favorites.) The seaweed was, of course, a problem at the beach. There were people there cleaning it up on a daily basis. The beach was small and rocky. We didn’t go in the ocean much at all here. We did use the hotel kayaks which are located at the little shack at the end of the beach. Overall, a good stay.

The pictures were beautiful, however when we got there the hotel was under construction and one of the main Caribbean buffet restaurant was closed. Our room was near the construction site the dust came in through the vents of the air conditioner. I had a flu from sinusitis blockage for my entire trip. I would not recommend to spend nights. The pool was lovely, but the seaweed was so horrible you cant take a dip in the ocean, this was wierd as the hotel next to us their side of beach was clear. Total Waste of my money

The staff at the Hilton was excellent, the food was good at all of the restaurants and the buffet food that the staff prepared for you was also great. We really enjoyed being greeted by all of the friendly staff and the bartenders Arbey, Pony, and Toto at the lobby bar and tequilera were amazing. The staff at the Rincon Mexico were also great and the taco man was excellent. The pool was relaxing and the hotel was clean everywhere.

Service was very good at the Hilton. However upcharges on Cabanas (50 bucks a day) and certain food (lobster and seafood) not cool. Thought this was all inclusive and to make it worse, they would keep trying to sell you food dishes at dinner. Beach is indeed a mess, absolutely unswimmable. Not coming back to this property. For all inclusives, use Secrets Maroma or Grand Paraiso.

Cannot beat the service, food and staff. An excellent choice for adults only all-inclusive. The beach is in bad shape but the pool is huge and plenty of other things to do-great location. Well worth staying here-highly recommended!
