9. What Brides & Groom Said...

“Just arrived home from Hilton. We hosted 36 people for our wedding. Everything was amazing from the front desk staff especially Paul Avendano. He remembered our names from the day we arrived and could not have been more helpful everyday. 

Our guests were so complimentary of the hotel, staffing, food, pool and location. We could not have chosen a better venue for our Wedding..” – Lisa F.

“We had the most beautiful wedding at The Hilton Playa Del Carmen. Our wedding planner, Diana Oramas, was incredible. She went above and beyond our expectations and made our day seamless.
