Just in Time for Family Vacations – Coral KidZ Club Welcomes Young Guests
Our $2 million, 40,000 sq-ft state-of-the-art Coral KidZ Club, designed by the award-winning team at Launch by Design, is our newest attraction for our young guests.
Poised to rival any other children’s program of its kind in Latin America, the new high tech club is already captivating our young guests with more than 40 indoor and outdoor activities offered.
We’ve designed it for children 3 – 12 or “Gen Z-ers,” and the club takes make-believe and the playground concept to another level. The cutting-edge technology, designed to encourage interaction with other kids as well with parents, has spaces offering individually designed zones for different age groups with customized technology and hand painted artwork throughout.
The outdoor area features remote controlled toy vehicles for multigenerational competitions throughout the resort.
A host of activities keep children occupied throughout the day.
On checking into the Coral KidZ Club, guests are greeted by bright colors, fun patterns and international greetings splashed on the walls. Personal cubby holes are available for them to store their belongings, before they set off to find their age appropriate zone.
From Mercados to Jungles
For kids ages 3-5, there’s an area devoted to imagination and learning where toddlers can choose their own path – city, park or jungle. The cityscape features – among other things – a Mexican-style home, fire station; construction zone; a mercado and play kitchen. Next door, the Jungle room features a quiet zone deep in the forest where they can curl up in a nook with a book.

With “Gen Zers” in mind, innovative technology was integrated into the club’s physical structure to encourage “edutainment” play. Their area provides them with infinite opportunities to explore and deploy their creativity and imagination.
The Maya culture is highlighted in an interactive 30 square foot LED wall with an electronic game, which teaches kids about that ancient culture via interactive play and fun facts. Children earn rewards from playing these games and can claim their prizes throughout the hotel.
The Outdoor Fun
Outdoor activities open up a whole new world – enhanced by NEOS® – the world’s first electronic system for the playground, combining both the speed and fun of video games with the lively movement of aerobic exercise.
A basketball hoop and custom race car track for racing remote controlled cars and traditional Mexican sidewalk games can be found throughout. A casual outdoor lounge area with rock-shaped furniture is a spot for both children and adults who want to take a moment to relax.
“We wanted to create the best possible kids club, one that breaks the mold in terms of innovation, and technology,” said Alberto Gurrola, Managing Director of Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach Cancun.
“The Coral KidZ Club is extremely high tech yet still embraces the traditional favorites of everyone’s childhood, while offering an unprecedented level of sophistication and diversity all with a strong sense of place.”
