As a travel agent who travels often, I visit countless resorts in order to pair my clients with the best destination and hotel for their vacations. Last November I traveled to Cancun with my own family and stayed at Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach. I am excited to share my top seven reasons why you should consider taking your family here as well!
Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach- the perfect blend of luxury and family-friendly experiences
Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach is situated in the heart of the Hotel Zone in Cancun, right along the stunning white-sand beaches of the Caribbean Sea. One of the appealing features of this resort is the close proximity to the airport. The 20 minute ride from the airport to the resort allows you to start your vacation right away! Another great perk to staying here is the ferry to Isla Mujeres is located right next door to the resort making this the ideal location for those wanting to explore more of Cancun.
2. Unrivaled Beachfront Beauty
One of my favorite things about Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach is in it's name- the beach! Personally, I am a beach lover and seek resorts that are on great beaches with beautiful water. Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach does not disappoint! The water here is clear blue and the sand powdery white. This stretch of coastline is a dream come true for beach lovers. The beach is great beach for building sandcastles, playing beach games, or simply lounging in the sun while the kids splash around in the waves.
The water is also great for body boarding which kept my teen and tween entertained for hours! There were always plenty of loungers at the beach and we loved that the pools were only steps from the ocean making bouncing back from the pool to the beach super easy!
3. Spacious and Family-Oriented Accommodations
Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach offers a variety of spacious accommodations for families of all sizes. From large and modern suites to penthouses with stunning views, the focus at this resort is on comfort and space, ensuring that everyone has room to relax and unwind. When traveling with my family, having plenty of space is key and we loved that we never felt crammed in the room together. The bathrooms are also very large which is important when a family of four is trying to get ready at the same time.
One of the best things about this resort is that all the suites at Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach are ocean view and most are ocean front. Sitting outside taking in the views of the Caribbean from our private balcony was pure bliss!
It is important to note that this resort only allows four people in each room so if you have a larger family, you will need to stay in a two bedroom suite which are two rooms that are connected together.
4. World-Class Dining
One of the best aspects of Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach is the food! There are 9 different restaurants to choose from so there is something to please everyone! There is also in-suite dining for those late night snacks or for those times when you feel like dining from the comfort of your own room. The resort also often hosts themed dining nights, creating fun experiences for the entire family. We were actually there over Thanksgiving and the Thanksgiving feast was delicious! The staff really went out of their way to celebrate this American Holiday for their guests.
4. A Kids Club with a wow factor
The Kids Club at Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach is one of the best I have seen (and I have seen a lot!) There are both indoor and outdoor play areas for kids ages 4 to 12. From arts and crafts to movie nights, sea shell hunts, beachfront sand castle building, and dress up and pretend play, kids will find themselves entertained for hours.
My boys were too old for the kids club, but I was able to tour (during their closed hours) to check it out. It’s large, bright and cheery, and looks like a lot of fun. I can imagine that kids would have a blast while parents get to enjoy some much-needed relaxation.
5. GEM SPA- A Blissful Escape
I make it a point to visit the spa at every resort I go to (I like to call it market research!) The spa at Grand Fiesta Americana is AH-MAZING! This 40,000-square-foot sanctuary offers a variety of treatments, from facials to massages and a great hydrotherapy circuit. A visit to the Gem Spa will provide you with a much-needed escape of pure relaxation and rejuvenation. The Hydrotherapy circuit was definitely a highlight for me. It is a ten-step path to renewal that blends ancient healing techniques with modern luxury. The circuit includes invigorating experiences like steam rooms, ice rooms, whirlpool jets, and hot and cold plunge pools, all designed to promote well-being and circulation. It's a must-try experience for anyone looking to recharge and unwind. I also received a relaxing Swedish massage which was heavenly. If you are a spa lover or are in need of some much needed relaxation, I promise you will not be disappointed!
6. Pools At Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach
This resort is a beach lovers oasis but the pools here are every bit as great! There are three expansive swimming pools onsite at Grand Fiesta American Coral Beach Cancun, all with gorgeous ocean views. We spent most of our time at the main pool where one of the the swim up bars are located. The main pool is also next to the poolside snack bar which was super convenient when traveling with hungry teens! There are also fountains and water massage jets in the mail pool and a large waterfall leading down to the other two pools.
The other 2 pools were not as large but still fun and one of them also has a swim up bar. These pools got more shade and would be perfect for the hotter months of the year.
7. Activities for everyone
Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach provides a lot of great entertainment that the whole family will enjoy. From water sports like snorkeling and paddleboarding to organized excursions to explore nearby attractions, you'll have access to lots of activities that the whole family can do together. Our family's favorite activity was jet skiing which was offered at an additional cost and located right on the beach. My boys had the best time jet skiing in the turquoise ocean waters! It was such a fun experience and an excellent way to take in the natural beauty of the region too!
