"Sheer Perfection"

The value that the Fiesta Americana Coral Beach is and the fact that they have the most optimal and strategic location to all the amenities Cancun has to offer (shopping, entertainment…) is what deserves every consideration. Their sandy white, calm beach waters broken by Isla Mujeres and the most incredible pool and relaxing atmosphere makes Fiesta Americana Coral Beach the best hotel, bar none, in the hotel zone. The food, from even the swim up bar, is equally incredible. And the service? It has brought me back to the Fiesta Coral Beach for the fourth year in a row. The world class spa is unforgettable!

Making the pool incredible is the sheer size, cleanliness and the extensive and perfectly manicured and luscious greenery that surrounds it. The grounds were aforethought to the hotel’s architectural plans: the hotel was built into the existing flora. This is very unique to the Fiesta. The natural shade, provided by their abundant palm trees and trees, helps evoke calmness and being one with nature. If you get the cabana out by the pool, it is heaven on earth! Nothing like falling asleep next to turquoise waters and the sounds of the sea.

The hotel can be to capacity, as it was last week that I was there, yet the atmosphere is very zen like–just what my daughter needed before the beginning of the intensity of the 80 hour work weeks that her surgical residency will be. The expansive lobby also gives it that zen feeling.

Their food is first class and superior in all of their restaurants. I will dream about the house made chocolate cake that was made for my daughter’s celebration until I return next year and request my own, from scratch/no box, for whatever reason I can think to have one made for me. I will also dream of the lobster pozole from La Joya restaurant and the complimentary tequila tasting. If something is not on the menu, it’s not a problem; they will make it for you to your specification.

Complimentary to all of the above is THE SERVICE, THE SERVICE, THE SERVICE! I have never managed to sit in any other area (why change perfection) but the Sunset (swim up) Bar as the staff there is a well oiled machine: they work hard, synergistically, and fast to meet your every need without being over bearing in the least. Simply say “todo bien” if you do not need anything. Be sure to try their strawberry, mixed greens, goat cheese and cashew salad with tamarind dressing salad; it is sooooooo good! This is not an all inclusive hotel but you do not spend any more by buying your meals and all your drinks.

They aim to please and will make EVERYTHING PERFECT for you.

"Thrivent Financial experienced"

In February, Thrivent Financial experienced the highest rated conference we have ever had for our annual leadership conference. It was due in large part to the Fiesta Americana Grand Coral Beach property, staff, culinary team and production support team. When we come back, will look no further than this amazing resort, again.

"Will Come Back If In Cancun"

"Will Come Back If In Cancun"

I went there this August at the end of my trip, we wanted to have a quiet 2 days after travelling for two weeks. I could not think of any other place to stay at. The hotel was clean, and well decorated. The staff was very friendly and helpful (the welcoming was friendly by a lady who tried her best french since she heard us speak french, it felt nice and personal). It is not an all-inclusive but that did not bother me, I found a deal with breakfast included online and for the rest, we tried the bar next to the pool, the Mexican restaurant and the French restaurant. In my opinion we have received far better food quality and service than in an all-inclusive, the hotel is well located anyway so there are more eateries within walking distance. And yes try the Spa, it was a pure delight! 🙂 I have not been to other hotels in the area to compare properly.
One minor point is that I was disappointed to have to pay to use the Gym facilities as extra, I would have hoped this was included, just like the pool for ex. (But on the other hand I was alone enjoying the view and putting my music out loud! )

"Quality of Food Was Excellent"

Everybody mentioned that the presentation was great, the variety, and the menus. The flexibility of the Chef was very much appreciated.

"Amazing Hotel with Gorgeous Views!!"

We loved almost everything about this hotel. The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is that they closed their pool at 8 and that greatly disappointed us. We spent our days out and about and would come back from dinner hoping to get some time to swim but we were left bored.

"Amazing Hotel with Gorgeous Views!!"

We loved almost everything about this hotel. The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is that they closed their pool at 8 and that greatly disappointed us. We spent our days out and about and would come back from dinner hoping to get some time to swim but we were left bored. It really didn’t make since because the pool bar was open but you couldn’t get in the pool. They are very strict about this – we were in the pool and they made us get out at exactly 8, they actually started asking us to get out before then. Our room was so comfortable and the view was perfect. Breakfast buffet was absolutely amazing. Everyone working was very kind and they definitely pamper you!

"The Best Hotel in Cancun"

Why is it the best? Well, it starts with a central location close to the convention centre, restaurants and the main night life in Cancun. While one may think that being so close would make it loud and busy, it's quite the opposite.

"The Best Hotel in Cancun"

Why is it the best? Well, it starts with a central location close to the convention centre, restaurants and the main night life in Cancun. While one may think that being so close would make it loud and busy, it’s quite the opposite. The hotel is very large and constructed running parallel to the ocean. It likely has the largest beach front of all the hotels in Cancun. I had a very large ocean view room with a sitting area and a balcony. The pool is large and clean and the ocean is steps away. Full restaurant service right to your lounge chair. There are a few other great restaurants onsite and conference facilities. Service was excellent from front desk to the fantastic cleaning staff that keeps the entire facility sparkling. Yes the best hotel in Cancun

"Excellent hotel and location"

Location of this hotel is perfect - across the street from the convention center and walking distance to many restaurants and night life. Hotel staff is very accommodating. Our experience at the small cafe restaurant was superb - excellent food and service.

"Delighted we went."

This was my daughter's and my first time in Mexico and I made this booking strictly on the reviews on TripAdvisor and the amazing pictures promoting this place. I have traveled everywhere in the world and am fussy when it comes to hotel standards.

"Delighted we went."

This was my daughter’s and my first time in Mexico and I made this booking strictly on the reviews on TripAdvisor and the amazing pictures promoting this place. I have traveled everywhere in the world and am fussy when it comes to hotel standards. We were not disappointed. From the time my daughter and I arrived to the moment we left, we were made to feel special. From reception through to room service, the staff was extremely courteous and accommodating. Believe it or not, the pictures do not exaggerate the beauty of this resort. Our junior suite overlooking the lagoon was magical-clean, spacious with a breathtaking view over crystal clear Caribbean water. I can’t even begin to tell you how stunning the sunrise each day was. The atmosphere at the hotel is serene, laid-back which was exactly what we were looking for– a bit of rest and relaxation.The food was an excellent standard and obviously prepared to very strict hygiene standard. We chose from the a la carte menu rather than the buffet for breakfast – an option that worked to our liking. The only “downside” of this place is that other than the pools, the jet skis, the dining and the spa — there is nothing else to do without leaving the compound. Yes, there is shopping in walking distance and some other restaurants but no planned activities at the hotel- at least not while we were there but this was for us a minor point. I can’t wait to go again.

"My Favorite Hotel"

My wife and I spent our honeymoon here 13 years ago. A business trip to Playa del Carmen resulted in us extending and wanting to go back to Cancun. Based on the hotel's beach, there was no other hotel we considered.

"My Favorite Hotel"

My wife and I spent our honeymoon here 13 years ago. A business trip to Playa del Carmen resulted in us extending and wanting to go back to Cancun. Based on the hotel’s beach, there was no other hotel we considered.

While we thought the hotel was nice 13 years ago, we simply loved it on this trip. The staff was as professional as could be; they were extremely attentive and friendly. The grounds and public areas are constantly being taken care of and cleaned…you can tell the staff has great pride in the hotel. Both my wife and I work in large luxury hotels in Las Vegas and this hotel was the cleanest and best maintained property we have seen. Everything was spotless!

The pools are gorgeous, and the property sits on probably the nicest beach in the Cancun area. The entire Caribbean has been plagued with a seaweed issue this year…the Fiesta Americana has nets offshore to keep the problem to a minimum while they also have staff picking up seaweed that does make it to shore. It really was not a concern.

The location of the hotel could not be better. It is conveniently located to restaurants, bars, nightspots, and shopping so you don’t have to go far for added options, but it still maintains a relaxed, low-key atmosphere when you are on the property grounds. It is the perfect place to relax.

The rooms are tastefully decorated, as are the restaurants on property. There are a number of fine restaurants to choose from if you don’t want to leave the hotel. The breakfast buffet was especially nice, and there are a number of theme nights at the various venues (Mexican Fiesta, Reggae, etc.).

The hotel’s spa was probably my wife’s favorite feature. She said the attention she received and the treatments available were second to none.

We both loved our stay and vowed to come back sooner rather than later. It is a great hotel.

"Why they don't have 5 stars, I'll never know!"

I don't even know where to begin with this amazing resort and more importantly; the most incredible people who provide lovely hospitality that work here. This resort is a gem and why anyone has one negative thing to say; I will never understand.

"Why they don't have 5 stars, I'll never know!"

I don’t even know where to begin with this amazing resort and more importantly; the most incredible people who provide lovely hospitality that work here. This resort is a gem and why anyone has one negative thing to say; I will never understand.
First to disprove some of the other reviews; I am not sure what hotel the guy who claims you can’t bring bottled water from the outside into the resort or that the security guards watch you like a hawk. I brought groceries (snacks/water/soda) multiple times from the grocery store right down the road and was always greeted with a warm smile and friendly ‘hola’; so that just isn’t true. I did not experience ONE rude encounter during my stay, we were treated like royalty during our entire 7 days at Fiesta Americana Coral.

A few highlights regarding staff;
The man who stole our heart… Benigno (Benny). We first met him when he waited on us on our second day under the palapa on the beach. Every day after that, we had 4 lounge chairs waiting for us with towels to lay on & towels as pillows; 2 in the shade and 2 in the sun so we could tan. He constantly brought us buckets of fresh ice, made sure we had what we needed and never put pressure on us about paying immediately; let us keep a tab open every day that made it super easy to pay with a credit card if needed. He was so kind, respectful and the most lovely man we met during our trip. A few people were looking and asking for him that were regulars so we know he is a gem that many people are fond of. Our last day he was actually working at the breakfast buffet (which is soooo delicious btw!) and he waited on us for our last morning, we were so sad to say goodbye. I hope everyone treats this man the way he deserves, he made our trip to Cancun so special and we will never forget him!
Oscar at La Joya restaurant was also so great! We did the tequila tasting (in the coupon book) and he not only enlightened us with so much cool information about the different kinds of tequila and the process it takes to make them but also made us laugh with his great sense of humor! Highly recommend seeing him at the restaurant.
The staff at the spa were also incredible. I am a spa snob; membership at Burke Williams, have been to many in my life and let me tell you… you will never experience a spa like this. It was absolutely stunning from decor to the 10 steps of hydrotherapy you do before your service (spa/sauna/steam/ice room/jacuzzi/mudbath etc.). Just amazing! I actually ended up cutting my toe in the last giant infinity pool; I think on a piece of tile that had come lose (which they immediately fixed) and they waited on me like no other! They called first-aid and had someone come disinfect and properly wrap my toe (I felt so silly but this is their protocol) and they even ended up giving me my 80 minute massage complimentary, it was unreal! They were so accommodating and gracious, it was such a treat to say the last.

The rooms are beautiful; marble floors with steps that go down to a sitting area and a beautiful view of the pool and ocean if you get ocean front view. The house-keeper came 3 times a day and left us chocolates daily, organized our shoes and left us clean slippers and robes every day… it was a fairy-tale really!

The beach is the best in all of cancun, you are on the side where the waves aren’t too rough and they keep the area so clean with the fluffiest whitest sand! Right behind you is the hotel zone downtown where there is senor frogs, the outdoor market where you can buy all of your gifts to back home, some outlets and even grocery stores and great restaurants.

I can’t wait to come back and stay at this resort again, it was perfect from beginning to end. I will recommend all my family and friends to stay here in a heartbeat! 🙂
