    Best service ever!!!

    We are currently spending our 3rd day here! We travel a lot and up until now we were in love with Hawaii. But no more 8 hr flights for us. This hotel is very classy and the service staff are by far the best we have ever experienced. The food is great and there is a huge variety. There two downsides: we love to tip for great service, but there’s no place to get change! Second, there is no shopping at the hotel, not even a small convenience store. If you are concerned about Covid-19, this is the place to be! They have taken every precaution one could take.

    Amazing time at Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach

    This hotel hit all my expectations for our stay in Cancun for our pre Labor Day weekend getaway. Upon arrival we were upgraded to a master suite by Yasmin ( with whom I conversed with by email. ) I already had an oceanfront balcony reserved and she wanted to make our stay even more special. I already had to cancel three other trips due to travel restrictions due to COVID so my husband and I was looking forward to finally celebrating our anniversary. The hotel took many extra precautions due to COVID . Masks required inside, plenty of antibacterial gel and social distancing. We felt completely at ease and had many choices on where to eat. The food and drink options were excellent. We did not go hungry and were never bored. It rained a little bit but in Mexico it's over with quickly. One of my favorite offerings was the specially made hot tequila/whiskey coffee- "Ciriaco" made it amazingly and was so kind. We rented a car from the airport and was happy to find complimentary parking at the hotel. Driving around Cancun to Playa Del Carmen was no problem for an easy day trip. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Grand Fiesta Coral Beach Cancun.

    Bad service and food for the price you’re paying!

    This hotel is pretty expensive for the money you pay, stay somewhere else! There’s no waitress around the pool!!! and the few ones that are there take forever to bring you a drink ! Food is very repetitive! Not worth it!!!

    Awesome hotel

    The hotel is great and is overall awesome. They really want to make you happy. Turns out there is a public beach, prob an unofficial one, right nearby. Our huge pool float thing was stolen from our seat, and pretty quickly. That was sad and we paid something like $60 for it at the hotel store. Oh yeah, hotel shop is way overpriced. The rooms smell a bit funky for a fancy hotel, I guess because of the humidity and ocean and all. But surprising since there is housekeeping twice a day. It’s a great hotel overall and we had a super relaxing vacation. They could work on security I guess so stuff isn’t lost, and lost and found in general. Would be nice to have slightly more knowledgeable staff. I speak some Spanish, this wasn’t a language issue, but when I tried to ask specific questions I had to turn to this app rather than a concierge or someone at the desk.

    Wonderful getaway

    Not sure where to start but this Resort knows how to make you feel like your in vacation. I am really not sure if they could have done anything more because they went above and beyond for us since the moment we arrived. We only stayed 2 nights but it was the best 2 nights from anywhere we have stayed in the past. This is definitely going to be a revisit. The food,room,views and service were top notch. Since this trip was during Covid-19 mask are required inside the building but outside you can relax it. They have someone at the elevators to greet you and give you hand sanitizer. The workers are nonstop cleaning. I will definitely recommend and will return back for another visit.
