Out with the Hilton, in with the Iberostar

According to sources, due to disagreements between then owners of the hotel property, The Hilton is set to abandon Cancun in the near future, so what does this mean for the future of the location?

Well as it stands currently, many have pointed the finger at the Iberostar chain as the best placed to take over the management of the establishment as although Iberostar has eight locations throughout the state, one in Cozumel and seven in the Riviera Maya, they currently have none in Cancun and taking on this newly available space would provide access to the hugely popular hotel zone.


But let’s not forget the other aspects that make it even more attractive to the Iberostar giant. This is the only lodging in Cancun that has its own golf course, known as the Ruins of the King. The property is also the favorite in the city for meetings and congresses, and has 334 meters square of space across two rooms, one of which overlooks the ocean and adjacent meeting rooms that have to be converted into 16 Boardrooms.


The hotel, 5 star, is located near mile 17 of Kukulcan Boulevard is flanked by the Great Parnasus hotel and at the other end of Dolphin Beach and has 426 rooms. Originally a Westin, it was sold to Hilton to settle debts. Built around 1992-1993, it began operations that same year with the name of Caesar Park Cancun Beach & Golf and was designed and operated by Aoki Corporation, which owns Westin Japanese company. After five years he sold it to Hilton Hotel Corporation and as of November 18, 1999 it changed its name to Hilton Cancun Beach Camp; Golf.
