8 Great Reasons to Stay at Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach Cancun

Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach Cancun All Inclusive Spa Resort is one of the most desired places to stay in Cancun and one of the most romantic resorts in Mexico.

I love that I can catch a flight from the DC area at 8am and have my feet in the sand by noon. That is a powerful and exhilarating paradigm during the frigid and gray winter months. My Northeast US friends, especially, should strongly consider a stay at this property to experience some needed vitamin sea and natural vitamin D.

Here are my favorite and most compelling 8 reasons to stay at Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach Cancun All Inclusive Spa Resort. Yes, the property has a lengthy name but well worth putting at the top of your travel wish list.

1. Phenomenal Cancun Location

If you are going to treat yourself to a quick sun and fun getaway, then you should definitely save money, time, and stress by making it a carless trip. Airport transfers are often included with most rates but ask!

Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach Cancun occupies an enviable position on the elbow of Cancun’s Hotel Zone. The hotel is within walking distance to Cancun’s most popular night spots (without the need for an Uber).

But, if you decide to stay on property the entire visit, there is more than enough to make you happy.

2. Coveted Coral Beach

Coral Beach here retains the coveted original sand and nostalgia of yesteryear Cancun and many visitors prefer it to the hustle and bustle of the main beach.

Additionally, Isla Mujeres blocks big waves resulting in calmer waters for a better ocean swimming experience.

If you seek a quiet and calm Cancun beach with no vendors and smaller crowds, then Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach Cancun is a great choice.

3. Superb All-inclusive Service

Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach Cancun recently transitioned to an all-inclusive resort and people staying here really reap the benefit of that decision.

Even more impressive, I feel, is that people around Cancun recognize the service at Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach Cancun to be outstanding. When I mentioned to a few people that I am staying there, they responded by saying it is the best place to stay in the area. They also told me that Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach Cancun has the best service and staff.

The cost of nearly everything is covered in the overall price you pay for your suite. No worrying about how much dinner or drinks will be! Of course, there are some purchases that are not included in the all-inclusive rate. Spa treatments and premium meals are additional costs.

4. Suite Rooms at Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach Cancun All Inclusive

All rooms at Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach Cancun are suites—with a balcony, living room area, and Gulf of Mexico view.

McCool Travel tip: I suggest splurging on an Ocean Front Master Suite. You’ll enjoy a private patio with comfortable lounge chairs and access to the top level concierge lounge.

5. Pool Funness and Salt Life Adventures

The Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach Cancun pool is magnificent and your visit may be dominated by your time in and near it. And there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. Especially if you are a temporary snow bird and flocking here from the frigid Northeast US during the brrrr months.

The massive outdoor pool area has plenty of comfortable chairs and umbrellas and space to relax. The pool overlooks Coral Beach and is attractively landscaped with palm trees and grass areas.

Three poolside bars (one is a fun swim up bar) and attendant service provide food and beverages to keep you hydrated, sustained, and happy.

Look for occasional music acts on the platform over the falls (very cool) and pop up food stands and other funness.

McCool Travel tip: for a fun and memorable adventure, rent a two-seater SeaDoo watercraft from the beach hut by the pool. Great for one or two persons! SUP and kayak rentals are also available.

6. Phenomenal Spa

The Gem Spa at Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach Cancun is one of the best spas in Latin America and one of the top three spas I have been to. And I love resort spas!

The treatments are luxurious. My deep tissue massage was one of the top two I have received and my friends said their treatments were divine. On my next visit I will surely want to try their Chocolate Body Wrap followed by a Bamboo Massage.

But the 10 station Hydrotherapy will be a highlight of your stay at Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach Cancun. So much so that I did it three times during my short stay. Yes, it was my highlight!

The 10 stations include steam, sauna, clay room, ice shower, hot tub, a sensation rock walk (fun!), and the brilliant hydrotherapy pool with multiple power jet streams (you gotta try them all and pick a favorite).

The property also has an excellent fitness center overlooking the Gulf of Mexico.

7. Food and Drink at Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach Cancun All Inclusive

Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach Cancun has several dining and drinking options and it is a challenge to try them all. From a AAA Five Diamond restaurant to the poolside bar, the food and beverage choices here will astound and please you.

A perfect lunch spot is a waterfront table under the palapa at Isla Contoy. I suggest ordering the fresh fish but customize it by including the spicy habanero sauce instead of the listed preparation.

Isla Contoy is also nice for dinner but also make sure to try these on-site restaurants too:

  • La Joya for amazing Mexican cuisine
  • Tuscany Trattoria for tasty Italian
  • the upscale Le Basilic for Five Star French and Mediterranean dishes prepared by one of Mexico’s top female chefs.
  • The Table, a multimedia interactive experience focusing on the area’s people and history with twelve courses of authentic food and drinks.

So many other options are available including Viña Del Mar (breakfast buffet), Havanna Club, Sports Lounge, Coral Cafe (bistro), and even around-the-clock room service.

All water at Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach Cancun runs through a complex filtration system and is safe to drink. That includes your bathroom tap water. Such peace of mind, order any drink with ice or fresh salad without a worry of catching an illness from water issues.

8. Coral Kids Club

Visits to Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach Cancun are not limited to adults. In fact, the resort is popular with families from Mexico and around Latin America (and even for some savvy US people). The kid-friendly vibe is an amenity that is often overlooked.

The Kids Lounge area features a dedicated swimming pool area, cutting edge technology center, theatre with backstage dressing area (with costumes and accessories), kitchen and cooking theatre. and much more. Believe me, children will not be at all bored or disappointed with the facilities.

Parents can enjoy a second or third honeymoon, knowing that their children are entertained, safe, and happy. Besides regular business hours, the kid’s program offers babysitting so you can enjoy an extended dinner at The Table or Le Basilic, a night on the town, or just some we time.

Discover Your Own Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach Cancun Favorites

Yes, I covered a lot about Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach Cancun but there is so much more.

The resort can be a perfect wedding, bachelorette, and family reunion getaway. It is a fantastic place to escape the winter cold and a wonderful wellness trip anytime of the year. A trip to Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach Cancun is great for couples, groups, solo travelers, honeymooners, and families.

Make sure you check out the design of the hotel and the decorations. The magnificent stained glass ceiling over the main lobby is a sight many do not appreciate. Look for the statues and other artwork in the public areas. Take the stairs, as there are spectacular views from the various levels.

The onsite concierge staff can help you explore Cancun and Quintana Roo, whether you want to visit Isla Mujeras, go parasailing or experience other adventures, eat or play off property, or anything else.
