5 Reasons to Plan a Luxury Escape to the Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach

Couples and families seeking to escape the hustle and bustle of life by unplugging and relaxing should plan their next luxurious stay at the Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach. With stunning ocean views and impressive 5-star amenities, a retreat to this centrally located resort is one we've read raving reviews about and can't wait to experience for ourselves as we celebrate our upcoming wedding anniversary.

Can you believe that the hubby, Mike and I have yet to ever travel anywhere alone? Nope, not even during our honeymoon in Cancun 11 summers ago. We're beyond hyped to be returning to Mexico on our first solo trip in 15 years.

Funny enough, our fave uncle Poncho and his wife gifted us our trip on our wedding day and where we knew that they'd be joining us, imagine how crazy it was when we realized that he even booked us adjoining rooms! Lol, he's lucky we love his crazy self so much and that we knew we'd have an incredible time regardless. It wasn't exactly the romantic getaway we envisioned as young newlywed, twenty-something-year-old parents to a 4-year-old.

A few years back after being introduced to the luxurious resort during an NYC media preview for the Coral Kidz Club launch we excitedly were planning a trip to visit the destination with our boys. Unfortunately, the universe had different plans and we were suddenly in the midst of my husband needing emergency knee surgery and then grieving the tremendously surprising loss of that fave uncle Poncho and a few months later, the unexpected passing of our 30yr. old brother-in-law Jason. Fast forward to today and after 15 years together and 11 years married we're looking forward to our honeymoon do-over while spending some quality time together to recharge sans the kids, family, and friends.

If you and your family are looking for a serene oasis to get away to, here are
5 reasons why visiting the Grand Fiesta American Coral Beach is a must:


As a Forbes Travel Guide verified and recommended luxury resort, you'll enjoy suites with sunken living rooms that overlook gorgeous Caribbean waters. All suites have balconies and an incredible view of the ocean. Enjoy a private beach experience with calm waves that are perfect for families. 

If you're a Travelzoo member I recently spotted a great deal with a 4-night stay and flights to the Grand Fiesta Americana resort between August and October which includes:

  • Roundtrip flights to Cancun
  • Accommodations at Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach Cancun
  • Roundtrip ferry ticket to Isla Mujeres (one per person)
  • Complimentary hydrotherapy ritual at Gem Spa (one per person)
and so much more! Further details on all inclusions and exclusions here


Jumpstart your morning as early as 6:30 am for a delish breakfast or brunch buffet at Vina del Mar, in between walking the beach and hitting the gym pop by Coral Cafe or Isla Contoy. End the night with dinner at La Joya which means enjoying a live mariachi band under dim lights and beautiful, high stained-glass windows. If you're looking to switch it up, treat your tastebuds to Le Basilic, an AAA Five Diamond restaurant serving french- Mediterranean dishes, a venue perfect for date night!

Note:  Children ages 12 and under eat free at all of the restaurants, with kids' menus or kid-friendly entrees. 


The 40,000 sq. ft. Gem Spa is well known for its 10-step Hydrotherapy Ritual that includes a steam room, sauna, mineral soak and more. Afterward indulge in a massage, facial, or scrub.

If you're planning to travel with your children, they are going to absolutely love the really cool Coral Kidz Club so much, you may not even see your kids for most of the trip! The hotel spent $2 million creating the enormous, state-of-the-art facility perfect for tweens and teens.  

Lil'  Monsters will be so hyped over the Mayan-themed outdoor sand and water-filled play zone; open play theater featuring a stage with digital backdrop, light-up dance floor, and dressing room with costumes and makeup; arts and crafts area; an interactive game that teaches children about the ancient Mayan culture and of course a computer zone with Xbox and Wii play-systems. When we bring the boys back we've promised our mini foodies that they could check out the cooking classes offered.

Note: Up to 2 kids under 12 years old stay, eat and play for free when sharing a room with at least one adult. Combinable with 4th night free. Check out details on all current promotions here

5. "Ú" by Grand Fiesta Americana program

“Ú” is a concept of “Unique Experiences” within an award-winning luxury resort which is not a traditional All-Inclusive Resort, however, this new concept entitles you to gourmet dining at any of the resort’s restaurants, unlimited gym access and the Gem Spa Hydrotherapy ritual including steam rooms, jacuzzis & saunas, 2 round trip ferry tickets to Isla Mujeres per suite per stay, and 50% discount for any SPA treatments, and unlimited access to the Coral KidZ Club for our younger guests.

Three highlights that we're looking forward to the most is the hydrotherapy ritual, Gourmet Video-Mapping 10 Course Dinner at La Joya Restaurant and a romantic evening with dinner on the beach.
