Fiesta Americana Grand Coral Beach Resort & Spa
Travel Blogs from Cancun
After we had spent about 2 hours at the ruins we hopped in our car and
headed for Cancun. We attempted to take a drive through Playa del
Carmen, but that ended in a dead end road, me yelling, and then me
having to drive the rest of the way to Cancun in silence. At any
rate....we didnt really see Playa del Carmen. We arrived at …
... food was great. At one point a lady came out selling orange jelly shots that were made in an orange skin so it looked like a cut orange, we had one each and while you chew it and try to get it down (which took a while because the jelly was really hard) the lady blows a whistle and rubs your head, shakes your head and does all kinds of crazy stuff to you, she even pulled up my shirt and squeezed my nipples, and with Bobbie she jiggled her boobs. ...
... that the scooter was a bit OTT if you know what I mean. I hardly got out of first gear and I was slamming on anchors for a corner or something.
On one of the other days we went snorkeling. It was some package deal that took us to the best spots around the island. The first place was really nice, but we found out that we had to wear life jackets whilst snorkeling as that is the law in Mexico. This made us furious. It's like being forced to wear sunglasses to ...
... states all over Mexico. Overall, the show lasted 2 hours and it was amazing!
We made it back to Bahia Azul, to show my family where I live for the first time (packing everything in, we hadn't had the time earlier) and there they met some more of my friends and it was Monicas birthday so we did the traditional "mordida mordida" and pushed her face into the cake, but then they also made ...
... I took my ticket and sat at a bar and talked to a couple from Ohio, they were also using a friends points for a week stay here in Cozumel! Finally 3:00pm boat got there! It's been a very very very windy nasty day! Cold kinda! So ride was rough a lady actually got sick!, Got off ferry, and I new where hotel was because I saw it on google earth with Paco!

Historical Traveler Reviews Fiesta Americana Grand Coral Beach Resort & Spa Cancun
If you have chosen Cancun as your vacation destination...Fiesta Amrican Coral Beach is the best choice!!
While I was looking around for some honeymoon destinations, I found the F.A. Coral Beach. The pictures and 5 star rating intrigued me, so we booked it.
This is not a cheap hotel but fabulous. The rooms are all suites and have balconies. The staff were all excellent and friendly. The hotel has a great location being on a lovely beach with security to ensure only hotel guests using the sun loungers etc. Many water sports available, great bars/dining at beach front but all quite pricey. The lunch menu at the beach cafe/restuarant is not bad value as good sized portions and the cocktails are lovely, especially 'strawberry love'. All tours can be arranged from hotel travel agency (without any time share hassle). Our only gripe really was considering the room prices it was so petty to charge every day for coffee used in the room. We bought a jar of coffee from the convience shop across the road. Room service was excellent but again not great prices. The hotel is close to many good restaurants and shops as well as McDonalds, rainforest cafe, Hard rock cafe etc. Starbucks about to open. Best restaurant we tried was Argentinian CAMBALACHE, fab place, atmosphere, food, steaks and service well worth the prices and just across from hotel. Save up for a really good holiday here in Cancun and stay at Grand Coral Beach for some luxury - hope you get the good weather we had and you wont regret it.
This is a FANTASTIC property. We actually left the Hyatt Regency Cancun (across the street) because it was a less than ideal property with no beach and flat out OLD and Not appealing place for the FIESTA AMERICANA CORAL BEACH.
What a fantastic property. It was so beautiful. The pool was amazing. The beach was great! Service impeccable.
All rooms are Suites. Clean bathroom very spacious. Enough for two people.
This was a great move and my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the place. I would go back!!!
While Cancun as a whole wasn't the tropical paradise with wide white beaches we'd expected, this hotel seemed to have the widest, sandiest beach on the strip. The rocks are at a minimum, just in a section where you can snorkel. The water is the beautiful Caribbean blue color I dreamed of. The sand was so soft. I do believe that this hotel has sunk sand bags to protect their beach, so it's not completely natural, but on this island of chain stores, what is? The pool is large and clean, but the hotel and other structures hide it from the sun. The hotel blocks the sun relatively early in the afternoon -- after 3pm you have to hunt for a sunny spot. The scuba outfit right next to the hotel (Solo Buceo) is convenient and reasonably priced but I'm not convinced of their professionalism. Maybe we just had a bad dive master.
stayed at the fiesta americana grand coral beach with my girlfriend 7/02.This was our 1st visit to Cancun and hopefully not our last. Overall, the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The room-"suite" was above average-lots of marble, great bed, pillows and nice linens. The room actually smelled great(never figured out what they used for the fragrance). If the shower H2O doesn't get hot enough, turn the sink hot water on at the same time-sounds crazy but it helped. The pool, outdoor bars and outdoor restraunt were great and the outdoor eatery was not really that expensive(we ate at least 5-6 lunches there). Breafast buffet was huge and I think $22/person -We opted for breakfast menu every morning,once again prices not bad. The beach was very nice and calm water. Servers come out to the beach to take your drink and food orders. For us the location was ideal- walking distance to nice affordable restraunts; nightclubs and shopping. We also like the hotel 'cause of its sedate atmosphere. If you like to party and stay out all night you can count on being able to nurse your hangover the next day in a fairly quiet and upscale setting. We are going back for spring break '03 -we'll see if things remain the same.
The Fiesta Americana Cancun had a charming mexican-style ambiance. The rooms were clean and comfortable, with better than average bathroom ameneties. Beds were a bit firm, but not bad.
Best of the Best in Cancun
This is the second year our family of four has visited this hotel... and we'll go again next year! The hotel is elegant, comfortable, peaceful, spotless, uncrowded, and a joyous vacation spot. It has a fantastic, huge pool that the kids adore. The beach is small but well maintained. Cocktail and food service is everywhere. Food is outstanding. Standard rooms are spacious... the master suite is luxurious. Service is excellent with the friendliest and most helpful staff you will ever meet. We rented jet skis on the beach and had a ball. Tourist areas (uh, beer drinking students) are within walking distance as is one of several area malls. Bring your banker, it's pricey but worth every nickel.
The five star rating is deserved.
The class of Cancun
The best location in Cancun, powder sugar beach, electric blue water, fabulous swimming pools that stretch over three football fields and an incredible view from every room.
Spotless and impeccable are the hotel and grounds. Marble everywhere. Excellent service.
This place is grand.
The downside, $12 drinks, $9 bottled water and $50 lunch for two.
If you can afford it, this is the place if you go to Cancun. Is it worth the price? Every penny.
