It’s that time of year again and we at Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach Cancun are preparing for seasonal celebrations with a host of family-friendly events.
Giving Thanks –
In honor of Thanksgiving a specially created dinner menu will be offered in all of the resort’s restaurants, featuring typical US favorites such as turkey and all the trimmings, along with a variety of other dishes highlighting the flavors of Mexico. The Thanksgiving menu will be offered in all of our restaurants, Thursday November 23 – Saturday, November 25.
Also in the spirit of the season, raffles will be held in each restaurant offering guests the chance to win exciting prizes including: champagne breakfast buffets at Vina del Mar Restaurant; 10-step hydrotherapy rituals, spa treatments at the luxurious Gem Spa, and 50% discounts on Thanksgiving dinners and more.
Tree Lighting and Other Activities –
On Thanksgiving Day – November 23 at 7 p.m. guests will be invited to the main lobby for a complimentary cocktail to kick off the Christmas season with the lighting of the resort’s unique centerpiece: a 50-ft tree (five stories high) comprised of 110 fresh trees, which have been harvested from a local sustainable greenhouse. It will be decked out with 40,000 lights and 1,000 ornaments for the season. The event will be highlighted by festive seasonal songs performed live by Cancun’s acclaimed City Choir.
Other activities slated for November 23 will feature:
- A special art exhibition by renowned local artists supplemented by complimentary cocktails.
- A complimentary wine tasting from an array of wineries from across Mexico highlighting their top labels. The purchase of a bottle at “cost” can be paired with dinner at any of the resort restaurants, with no corkage fee.
- From 5 – 10 p.m. an exclusive sale of luxury items will be showcased in the Coral Island Ballroom.
Always ready to extend the warmth of Mexico and embrace international traditions, we’re happy to welcome you and your family to these relaxing shores for this special holiday.
