Full disclosure: I've never stayed in an all-inclusive resort and never thought that I would. I assumed that the hotels would want to cut corners wherever possible to maximize profits. Fiesta Americana did not cut those corners and I was pleasantly surprised by my wonderful experience. The service was absolutely incredible and everyone works so hard I was blown away. Sebastian was especially helpful!
Food - The fish tacos at the Cevicheria are delicious. I think I ate them for lunch every day and they're served with chips and fresh made guacamole. Every meal that I ate at a buffet style experience was reliably tasty and there were a lot of great options. The food in the restaurants at dinner were forgettable and I wouldn't be in a hurry to go back. Take my advice and stick to the buffets.
Drinks - Really surprisingly good quality alcohol was available at all of the bars (even the one in the pool!). Drinks did not seem at all watered down and they have Dos XX on draft. There is something unbelievably luxurious about being served beach-side drinks from your lounge chair looking out on the Caribbean and I really enjoyed it. Tipping is always appreciated and I was glad we had brought small bills.
Activities - This was a short stay, so I didn't do much, but I highly suggest getting on the public bus towards the airport a couple of stops to see the El Rey ruins. It's only 80 pesos (they don't accept dollars, so bring pesos) and a really cool way to get off the resort and spend some time walking around. There are iguanas everywhere and it's beautiful to watch them stare at the rising sun in total stillness.
I think the only downside was the occasional overly drunk guest from the US who made me embarrassed for my fellow countrymen. I would like to see more people try to learn a bit about the country they are visiting (especially one of our 2 nearest neighbors!) and maybe even some of the language.
Overall I had an amazing experience at the hotel and was truly impressed with the staff's hard work and attention to detail. I booked a package deal through Orbitz and got an incredible price with a very easy flight plan from DC. It was incredibly easy to get down there and a great way to take a break from harsh winter weather.
