Experiencing Hilton Hospitality

At Hilton, families find more than just a place to stay; they discover a haven where luxury meets comfort in the heart of paradise. Hilton’s prestigious properties are strategically located in the most breathtaking destinations worldwide, offering a scenic canvas for your family’s sun-soaked vacation. Whether you’re dreaming of the powdery beaches of Florida. the vibrant landscapes of Mexico, or the enchanting islands of Hawaii, Hilton serves as the gateway to your ultimate getaway.

When traveling with kids, it matters where you stay. A recent Hilton For The Stay survey reveals families seek out child-friendly amenities when hitting the road with young ones in tow, including outrageous pools, kids’ and family programs and spacious suites and connecting rooms to give everyone the space they need to ensure a great stay. The findings coincide with findings from the Family Travel Association (FTA), which found 84% of families prefer to stay in hotels when traveling with kids. And when the FTA asked families where they most wanted to travel, it was an easy decision for 66% of those surveyed: The Beach. Year after year, families seek vacations along stretches of soft, sandy coastline blending into crystalline waters.

Where are the hottest (pun intended) beach destinations for families to enjoy for summer break and beyond? The top domestic and international destinations uncovered by the FTA are filled with sun, surf and sand, including these favorite beach destinations perfect for summer.

  1. Florida
    One of the most sought-after vacation spots with 825 miles of sand, families have a wide variety of beachfront locales in the Sunshine State, stretching from the Florida Panhandle to the Florida Keys. Hilton Hotels & Resorts are scattered about the state to offer beachfront amenities for families and kids of all ages, such as Hilton Marco Island Beach Resort and Spa, found on the pristine white sands of the Gulf of Mexico. The boutique-style beach property features a beautiful beachfront pool and upscale dining spots that are the perfect perch for taking in the fantastic sunsets that make Southwest Florida so popular in the summer months.
  2. Hawaii
    When seeking a fun-filled and exotic spring break escape, paradise awaits in the Hawaiian Islands. Here, tropical rainforests and beaches of sand ranging in color from golden to pink to black set a unique backdrop for a family escape. One of the islands’ most famous beaches, Waikiki, is often credited as being the modern birthplace of surfing, thanks to Olympian Duke Kahanamoku, who still welcomes visitors to Honolulu as a 9-foot bronze sculpture at the entrance to the famed beach. In the heart of the area’s array of water sports, restaurants, and shops await Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort. From kayaking in a saltwater lagoon to taking a plunge down a waterslide into a sparkling outdoor pool, Hilton Hawaiian Village is filled with tropical fun. Don’t miss the resort’s Waikiki Starlight Luau for an authentic Hawaiian experience under the stars before retiring to the exclusive Ali’I, the Rainbow Tower, or Tapa Collection rooms and suites. Next door, rooms in the Hilton Garden Inn Waikiki Beach can accommodate up to six with a mini-fridge and microwave helpful for keeping snacks for little ones at the ready. With a beachfront pool and onsite TR Fire Grill and its Hawaiian-sourced dishes, the whole family is welcome at Hilton Garden Inn as it’s also pet-friendly.
  3. Mexico
    Cancun and the Riviera Maya have long been spring break destinations, with travelers delighting in the vast offering of all-inclusive resorts with expansive resort pools overlooking wide stretches of beach. Hilton is home to six all-inclusive resorts in Mexico, including Hilton Tulum Riviera Maya All-Inclusive Resort, Hilton’s largest resort in the Caribbean and Latin America with 735 rooms and suites, including the premier Enclave room with enhanced service, private experiences, and access to the Enclave Lounge, and more than a dozen restaurants in which to feed even the most discerning child’s palate. There’s never a dull moment at Hilton’s all-inclusive, from water sports to kids’ clubs, culinary programs to local artisan events, and wellness events to fitness programs, all ages will be entertained before settling into spacious family rooms with living areas every evening.

Because it matters where you stay when visiting the beach, Hilton Honors members booking a stay using the free Hilton Honors app can book their stay, select their room, check in, unlock their door with a Digital Key and check out, all from their smartphone.

Hilton’s commitment to delivering exceptional hospitality is evident in their thoughtful consideration of families. Spacious suites become a home away from home, where parents and children alike can spread out and relax in style. Each room is designed with the comfort of families in mind, from plush bedding that promises a good night’s sleep to ample space for playing and unwinding after a day in the sun.

But the Hilton experience extends far beyond the confines of your accommodations. Families are invited to dive into a world of amenities designed to enhance their vacation. Imagine spending your days splashing in kid-friendly pools, participating in organized activities that entertain and engage, or exploring the natural beauty that surrounds each property. For moments of relaxation, adults can retreat to world-class spas or indulge in gourmet dining, where the flavors of local cuisine come to life.

With Hilton, your family’s sun vacation is more than just a break from the ordinary—it’s an opportunity to immerse yourselves in the lap of luxury, where every need is anticipated, and every desire is met with impeccable service. Here, unforgettable moments await around every corner, inviting your family to savor the joy of togetherness in some of the world’s most stunning settings.

Creating lasting memories

The essence of a family vacation lies not just in the places you visit but in the shared experiences that bind you together. Each adventure, from the laughter-filled moments aboard a Royal Caribbean cruise to the peaceful evenings watching sunsets at a Hilton resort, becomes a thread in the tapestry of your family’s story. Encourage your children to keep a travel journal, documenting their favorite experiences or the new friends they make along the way. These personal accounts become priceless mementos, capturing the wonder and excitement through their eyes.

Venture beyond the usual activities and seek out unique experiences that can become your family’s cherished traditions. Perhaps it’s collecting shells on every beach visited or finding a local culinary delight to enjoy together. Pleasant Holidays can help tailor your itinerary to include these special moments, whether it’s a private cultural tour or an off-the-beaten-path adventure, ensuring that your vacation is as unique as your family’s.

Photos and souvenirs are tangible reminders of your journey, but it’s the intangible moments of joy and discovery that will linger in your memories. Engage with the local culture together, learn a few phrases in the local language, or participate in a community event. These interactions enrich your vacation and provide valuable lessons of diversity and curiosity for children.

Embrace the unexpected. Sometimes, the most memorable moments come from unplanned events – a sudden rainstorm that leads to dancing in the rain, or a wrong turn that uncovers a breathtaking view. These serendipitous experiences often become the most talked-about stories, illustrating the beauty of spontaneity and the joy of exploring the world together.

As you journey through the sun-soaked days of your vacation, remember that each laugh, each discovery, and each shared sunset adds another layer of depth to your family’s bond, crafting stories that will be recounted for generations to come.
