“Wonderful Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2009

Spent a week here as my honeymoon trip with another week prior in Playa del Carmen. We were on the Concierge Level and we enjoyed the snacks appertifs and cocktails. The room was huge and looked out to Isla Murjeres. The atrium of this hotel is stunning!

I loved eating poolside! There was a large business meeting of alteast 100 Asians who conducted meetings on Asian time. It was fun to watch them playing water volleyball after a hard night's work. I think thehotel was a bit understaffed as we noticed lags in service calls after the businessmen arrived.

We always try to rent a car wherever we travel and this was no excpetion. Hertz was nearby and the hotel was accomodating with us for valet. We rarely used the thing except to go fishing and play golf in Puerto Aventuras.

The hotel is very expensive in my opinion. But it is self inclusive and you don't have to leave if you don't want to The tiered pools are amazing! I did not like the 'beach' and preferred the beach near the discos a few blocks away.

You will enjoy this hotel. It's like a big pink castle among the skyline.

We were only in Cancun for two nights and I had my hesitations when contemplating staying in Cancun because I had heard it was similar to the tacky areas of Australia's Gold Coast, only on a larger scale.
What can I say, out of the 2.5 weeks we stayed in Mexico I can honestly say we had some of our most fun times at the Fiesta America Grand Coral Beach. The beach and pools were excellent, hardly anyone else was around and the perfect weather just added to the experience. The breakfast buffet was top notch, the hotel was in a pristine condition and the staff were 100% swtiched on and attentive. The hotel truly deserves it's multi awarded 5 diamond status. We will defintiely return to this hotel if we return to Cancun.

I've been meaning to write a brief summary of our stay at this resort. My wife and I were there for our honeymoon. We stayed there for about a week. This was the best resort we have every stayed in. The accomodations and treatment were first class. The food was expensive but it was excellent. We were dissapointed just on how much they charged for every little thing but we were not concerned about money in our honeymoon. I strongly recommend this resort/hotel. We would definitely go back again!

I was thinking of posting a review for some time, and what really pushed me to finally do that was one of the very negative reviews I read about the Coral Beach. I am not questioning anything they say, but what a contrast to our experience! In short this is a paradise. Cleanliness, invisible but very effective room service, beds changed sometimes twice a day, chocolates for the night, high quality hotel bedding, very affordable meals served to the room. $50 for two, tips included, for a very decent lunch. And what's with the $120/day internet? It was $10/day, if you pay $70 for a week. We spent less that $500 in 7 days by charging every meal and every drink to the room. And we had martinis on the beach, coffees in the foyer with live jazz, ate every night at the beach restaurant, Isla Convoy, once at the La Joya, with live mariachi group. All was fantastic! The fact that the hotel was was underbooked may have had something to do with that. They don't charge you for using the coffee machine, as someone said. They charge you for the coffee filters, tea bags, and bottled water, all these are the mini-bar items. There is a clear price list posted. Walk down to the Maya plaza and buy some water. Or bring your own filter. Or just drink from the tap, it's safe :). And the white sand on the beach, that is being sifted for you every day? Omelets that are made for you at the breakfast buffet? I am now making them at home, this is how good they are. And if you need your bed made for the third time in a day, just call the desk and leave 50 pesos for the maid, that helps. This was our second stay in Cancun. First time we stayed at the Camino Real, next door, before it became the Dreams Cancun. It was 8 years ago, and wasn't bad, either. But Fiesta Americana Coral Beach is the best so far. I hope to come back.

This was the first time we stayed at Fiesta Americana Grand Coral and, although, it is not a real 5 star property compared to modern Vegas resorts, but staff and management is really trying to make your vacation special. The beach is absolutely gorgeous. Turquoise water, flour-like sand and no waves.
Bathroom was a little bit worn out but otherwise no complaints to the room. Beds and mattresses were on 5 star hotel level.
All night clubs are next door so you don't have to hire cab or to take a bus to get to the heart of Cancun's nightlife and numerous restaurants.

FAGCB is definitely one of the best non-inclusive resorts in Cancun.

We stayed at the Fiesta Americana Grand Coral from Sept. 9th to the 16th and had a fabulous time. What a fantastic property! While our room was not completely remodeled it was none the less very nice. The view was great. If this was a partial ocean view I can't imagine how much nicer the ocean front would be. We were however disappointed as a large part of the pool was closed down for refurbishment. We knew that the west tower was to be closed but were not informed about the pool. But to be fair you do have the beautiful ocean to swim in. It was very lovely and so calm without the waves that can become quite rough in Cancun. We never heard any type of loud noises and were able to sleep quite peacefully on a very nice mattress along with great king sized pillows and nice bedding. The staff was very friendly, polite and efficient. Our room was always made up quickly and the evening turn down service was so delightful. The room never wanted for anything. Since it was off season the hotel wasn't very busy. We were always able to find a palapa or pool umbrella. Never any difficulty obtaining the number of beach towels requested. The weather was perfect...just a sprinkle of rain one day. We are breakfast at the restaurant daily as there was not any other nearby restaurant. It could get a bit expensive but we did get 25% off. Breakfast buffet was good and there was a nice selection. We did eat at Isla Contoy for one meal. While the service was nice and the view was nice the food wasn't very good considering the price. We did complain and the offending item was immediately taken away and removed from our bill. We couldn't have asked for it to be handled more appropriately. There is also a little cafe in the hotel which had delicious desserts and coffee. Ordering from beach side service was fun. Two times we ordered pizza which was very tasty. We ate all of our dinner meals away from the hotel. Cancun has become more sophisticated restaurant wise. It used to be only chains like Chilli's and Ruth Chris was decent. Now there are so many choices...Limincello, Harry's, Casa Rolandi and Lorenzillo's to name a few. All were excellent. We also rented jet skis from the booth on the hotel's beach. It was our first time and had a great time. All in all the Fiesta Americana Grand Coral Beach was wonderful!

The fiesta Americana Grand Coral Beach is a wonderful resort. When we arrived our room was ready for us, we were told that we were given a room in the east tower, the west tower was completely closed for renovations. Somewhat disappointed wanted to try the new renovated rooms that had already been mentioned here on trip advisor, but we were taken to a very nice room on the 10th floor. The view was excellant ! We were never told or given a paper concerning bringing in food or drinks. We did purchase a few snacks and drinks nearby and carried them up to our room. We had brought along a small foldable cooler that worked out great for the drinks. We had lunch and drinks by the pool each day, they were very good. We loved the fancy glasses instead of the simple plastic ones usually given at resorts. Nice touch! We ordered room service for breakfast one morning, very good and alot of food ! The beach and pool areas are both very tropical and both have plenty of shade. I loved the plam trees on the beach. Service is 5 star all the way ! We plan a trip to a different resort each trip to Cancun, However we will return to this resort. Go you will love it !
