Return to Grand Fiesta Ameriana Coral Beach Cancun

| 0 comments

A couple of weeks ago Bebé and I returned to Grand Fiesta Ameriana Coral Beach Cancun for a 3-night stay. Coral Beach has been one of my favorite hotels in Cancun for a long time due to its upscale feel, excellent service, delicious food, comfy rooms and amazing cocktails. We stayed there once before, and have visited many other times over the years.

Grand Fiesta Ameriana Coral Beach Cancun is Now All-Inclusive

After over a year of dealing with the pandemic, we couldn’t wait to get back to the all-inclusive life! Coral Beach has always been a European plan hotel, with guests paying a bill for all their food and drinks at the end of their stay, but the resort recently took the all-inclusive plunge, with their “Infinite Experience” plan, so we needed to investigate how they were doing with this change.

Verdict: Coral Beach is better than ever! They have maintained everything that made it special, while adding great all-inclusive musts.

Read on to find out what’s new and what remains the same…

Grand Coral Beach Cancun Rooms

Coral Beach’s guest rooms are still plush and comfortable, only now the minibar and snacks are all included. This time we stayed in a suite… fantastic!

Grand Coral Beach Cancun Food & Cocktails

I was worried that the fact that the resort switched to all-inclusive might mean that the quality of the restaurants and bars might not be as good, but I was happy to discover that the food is still delicious and cocktails are still strong!

Grand Coral Beach Cancun New Additions

Coral Beach has added various restaurants and activities. In addition to Viña del Mar, La Joya, Coral Café, Isla Contoy and Le Basilic, they have added an Italian restaurant, Tuscany Trattoria & Terrace, and an Argentinian grill, which doubles as a lounge/nightclub, Havanna Club. Do. Not. Miss. the fantastic Tango performance!

Bebé could not stay away from the new Sports Lounge. We played A LOT of pool, ping pong and air hockey. They also have video games available in the Sports Lounge.

It’s important to note that they are still working on the decor in the new additions. However, they are all currently open and running smoothly.

I also learned that although they had not yet started the weekend we were there, Coral Beach is adding nighttime shows. In the meantime there is a fantastic band in the lobby in the evenings.

Speaking of the lobby…
