Despite the Covid-19 pandemic, Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach Cancun All-Inclusive Spa Resort hasn’t missed a beat when it comes to receiving some well-deserved accolades!
Le Basilic, our French-Mediterranean specialty restaurant, has been awarded yet again, the prestigious AAA Five Diamond designation – one of only eight restaurants in Mexico to receive this honor.
The recipient – since 2007 – of this coveted award, Le Basilic has also been added to the list of 1,000 top restaurants in the world by “La Liste,” the French global restaurant-ranking system. This honor was based on hundreds of guidebook and millions of online reviews.
Our celebrated Maître Cuisinier de France Chef Henri Charvet and Executive Chef, Mariana Alegria, assisted by their exceptional culinary team, apply their gastronomic expertise straight from France to present a stellar menu sure to please every palate.
Named for southern France’s delicate basil plant, Le Basilic’s elegant avant-garde ambiance, soft piano music and attentive service set the perfect stage for the “haute cuisine” dining experience you’ll find here.
The checkerboard black and white marble floor, art-deco clam-shell chairs and 16 candlelit tables frame the whimsical artwork of Mexican artist León Alva, whose personal style helps pave the way for this exceptional culinary journey.
In addition to the AAA Five Diamond recognition and inclusion on La Liste, in July, Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach was also among the various La Colección properties recognized with a TripAdvisor Traveler’s Choice 2020 Best of the Best Award!
