“Amazing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

Hotel was not exactly what I expected but I loved it. One thing that is helpful to know is that Fiesta Americana Villas and Fiesta Americana Grand is the same resort. Not sure why that information is left out. They offered to schedule a timeshare presentation the second we checked in. We ended up going because we got a discount on all our activities (scuba diving, parasailing, ATV tour, jet skiing, snorkeling) as well as 25% off at the spa which we ended up not using. We didn't get a timeshare but the sales person was extremely pushy.

Room: When we checked in we were put in a double bed room when we reserved a king bed room, but the next morning they relocated us while we were out. Room is nice and clean and the bed was incredibly comfortable. The shower was a bit annoying because it took a little while for the water to warm up, but nothing serious. We had a full view of the ocean. Beautiful!

Food: We got the all-inclusive package so we ate basically everything we could get our hands on. Food is great. Breakfast buffet at Vina Del Mar was amazing every single morning. Lunch was also great. Dinner I wasn't too crazy about, but the restaurants are all very nice and service was excellent. The bars were great. Oscar at the lobby bar was awesome! Room service, on the other hand, got our orders wrong or incomplete more often than not. There was always something missing. And ,yes, we had to sign a check after we were done ordering but that wasn't an issue for us. Tips are included in the all-inclusive package but we still tipped a few bucks because the staff deserves it.

Pools: The pools were nice. They have several pools, we didn't even try them all. The hot tub was perfect for us.

Beach: Beach is beautiful. Waves are a little rough but we still went in the water. I preferred Medano beach in town, though.

Location: Location was alright. Not too far from town. There is a shuttle that will drop you off in town for $10 round trip per person. However, the hotel is very far from the airport. There are many shuttle buses at the airport that will drop you off at the hotel for $16 per person (you don't need to reserve it ahead of time), or you can get a cab for around $50-$60.

Staff: The best part of this resort is the staff! Everyone is extremely friendly and welcoming. I didn't have a single bad experiencing with anyone! Moises at the concierge desk went out of his way to help us on more than one occasion. I am very pleased with the service from everyone from the concierge desk, to the golf cart drivers, to the waiters. Everyone was amazing.

If you want a place to just hang out and relax, then this is a place to do just that. With that said, it is sort of in the middle of nowhere, about 20 minutes away from downtown Cabo as well as from San Jose Del Cabo. Make sure you have transportation as cab fare can be around $20-$25 each way to Cabo. The Resort is also quite spread out and my room was about as far as you can get from the lobby, but if you feel a little lazy, just simply call the front desk and they send a driver with a golf cart to come get you! Restaurants were great, breakfast buffet was excellent. Only bummer was there is no internet service in the rooms, but they offer complimentary wi-fi in the lobby. The good news on that I suppose is it forced me to not work while on vacation, at least while I was in my room anyway. Overall, I had a great stay.

We almost felt guilty having purchased the all inclusive meal plan for our family of 4 with 2 kids as it seemed too good to be true. This is certainly not an all inclusive resort but rather a nice resort that offer a meal plan selectively, presumably to fill up capacity. It is an astounding deal as the quality of food and beverage service is on par with any nice hotel and substantially better than any allinclusive we've stayed at.
Aside from that, i must say the staff were fantastic in every respect and head and shoulders above anywhere we've been to in mexico. There was some confusion at the outset as to how our 14 yr old would be treated when ordering as it was somewhat vague on checkin whether she had to order off the kids menu (designed for kids! Tell that to a 14 yr old girl...) or the regular menu. The wait staff all treated her as we would have hoped which made the stay very nice and added to the sense of value we were getting.
I wouldnt hesitiate to go back should i be able to snag the meal plan again.

This hotel features great design and will be impressive for families who want lots of options for the kids. A little worn and noisy, but the staff was great and took care of any issue we raised. Thankfully they were not annoying with the Vacation Club offers. Would certainly come back.

We are time share owners at Fiesta Americana and go there twice a year. The staff is very friendly and take care of all our requests. We have stayed in all parts of the Vacation Club. We prefer the 1st Phase because it is near the ocean. Sitting on the balcony and watching the waves crash against the rocks is mesmerizing. Those units have dish washers and some have washer and dryers in the room. The rooms are not as nice as the last phase # 3 but we like the adult pool and you are closer to the Pennisula Club. Since we are seniors, we worry about stairs and walking uphill. I would like to encourage all guests when registering to request rooms without many stairs and near elevators. They do have a "handicapped room" which is up above the pool. We prefer to be a little further away. Both the Pennisula Club and Rosatos have excellent food - better than Pitahiyas at the Sheraton and well-priced. We highly recommend FiestaAmerica.

Room Tip: If you are a senior (which we are) we ask for a room that is not over the adult swimming pool but ne...

The view of the Sea of Cortez was amazing from the lobby sitting area. We arrived a little early...we tried to check in but our room wasn't ready (which was fine). We hung out in the sitting area for a little while just to enjoy the view, and then went to the Peninsula for lunch. The service and food there were great, and the scenery even better as it is right on the beach.

The pools were beautiful, and it was relatively empty when we were there (3rd week of May). If you like to explore, I recommend heading up towards the timeshare side. There's this hot tub right near the timeshare sales office that just about hangs off of a cliff. It's amazing to watch the surf crash into the rocks there, especially in the evening.

After check-in, we went to the beach. The "sand" was a bit more pebble-like so bring some water shoes. We were able to make do with our sandals, but I think water shoes would've worked better. The beach isn't very swimmable as there were a lot of rocks. But we were able to take our masks & snorkels and watch the fish (there were a ton!!) for awhile. Schools of fish would just swim right up to you. Amazing. Note that the water was a bit cool even in May.

We had dinner at Rosato. The food was good although a bit expensive. They brought out a few complimentary appetizers as well. We weren't sure what it was, but my husband got sick later that evening after eating there. He wasn't sure if it was allergic to a spice or something that was put into the food. I had tasted his dinner as well and I did not get sick. Maybe something to pay attention to if your stomach is a bit more sensitive.

Had breakfast at the Vina del Mar the next morning. The food was good and there was a good variety. Husband was still not feeling well so he didn't have much breakfast. Our breakfast was included with our reservation, but I still had to sign a check for the total amount and then the front desk deducts the cost for the breakfast from the final invoice. Thought that was a little bit strange.

We were only there for 1 night, since we were passing through on the way out to a longer stay at Cerritos Surf Colony. We enjoyed the facilities even though my husband was not feeling well for half a day.

My friend and I spent a week in the Villas at Fiesta Americana and we could not have picked a better place for a relaxing, stress free vacation. When you check in, do not be afraid to ask for a room nearer to the pool. The resort is built into a cliff so there could be some major walking, or asking for a golf cart ride, if you get stuck in one of the upper tier villas. Any of the villas nearest the ocean at the bottom is an excellent location. It's not a far walk to the infinity pool or pool with swim up bar which is pretty much where everyone hung out. The week we were there was quiet and we had no problem getting chairs under an umbrella. They also had chairs under awnings which were nice as well.
We had a one bedroom villa which was very spacious with a good size kitchen minus the oven. Only downfall is they only have 1 king sized bed in the one bedroom so since it was my friend and I, she took the full size sofabed which she said was pretty comfortable. You can get two beds if you stay in the studio villas but I heard they were quite small. So it's a trade off.
All-inclusive package was great! Only charged us $80 a day per person, and trust me, you can drink that amount while at the pool! We found the restaurants to be surprisingly delicious - the Italian restaurant Rosato and Vina Del Mar for the breakfast buffet were our favorites. Peninsula was also really nice and you can't beat the view as it is right on the beach. Everything that we ate and drank was included. We love our tropical cocktails with tequila or rum and they were all included. The gym is not included and they said it was $12 a day, however, when we checked out they never charged us for the one day my friend went. My friend went a second time and they never asked for our room number so we didn't get charged then either. The Wine Spa is definitely worth a visit for a massage!!
The wait staff were all extremely nice and helpful (a small tip extra for your pool bar waiter goes a long way - we had a friend in Luis who took care of us all week, never had an empty drink!). The property is beyond compare to anything I've traveled to before - beautifully maintained, clean, and the views are breathtaking. Also, no one is trying to sell you anything if you are on the beach - vendors can't access the property from the beach, but they do allow one or two vendors to have a cart by the pool area but they don't bother you at all.
Overall I highly recommend this resort if you want to take it easy and relax.
(Downtown Cabo is only worth a trip if you are doing an excursion. Other than that the Marina area now has one too many sleazy men trying to sell you necklaces or boat rides.)

Room Tip: Definitely ask for a room closest to the ocean and pool! Less of a walk to everything!
