Sugary white beaches, year-round sunshine, and gracious Mexican hospitality await you at the Fiesta Americana Condesa Cancun. The luxe all-inclusive resort in the heart of the Hotel Zone says, “Bienvenidos.” That’s “Welcome” in Spanish.
After a recent mega-million-dollar renovation, the resort sports beautifully appointed guest rooms, a plethora of dining options, and upgraded technology. TripAdvisor in 2019 awarded the property with its prestigious Certificate of Excellence.
You’ll know you’re in the right place when you see the enormous palapa at the main entrance—a palapa is an open-air structure with a thatched roof. It’s the biggest palapa in Cancun and perhaps all of Mexico. Two escalators flanking a rushing waterfall lead to and from the marble-floored lobby at the top. The public spaces are decorated in contemporary Mexican style and lavished with murals, tiles, and sculptures by Mexican artists.
Fiesta Americana Condesa Cancun is an all-inclusive resort, which means accommodations, most dining, and beverages (including alcohol), entertainment, and activities are covered in one package price. Speedy Wi-Fi and outdoor parking are also included. Additional charges apply for spa services, premium liquor, cabana rental, and gratuities.
Grab a mojito and let’s take a tour:
Guest rooms are your private retreat
The 507 guest rooms and suites are spread out over three towers emerging from lush tropical gardens. Choose from water, botanical and sunset views. Standard amenities include luxurious bedding, smart televisions, and coffeemakers. Baths are appointed with backlit mirrors, rain head showers, premium towels, terry bathrobes and a generous complement of C.O. Bigelow toiletries. Balconies are per plan.
Help yourself to the complimentary refrigerated mini-bar, which is stocked daily with sodas, water, and beer.
Traveling with a party to Fiesta Americana Condesa Cancun? Consider the Presidential Suite, a two-level sanctuary with three bedrooms, a full kitchen, dining room, and a wraparound terrace with views of the gardens and the beach. The master bedroom has a private bath and a hot tub.
Dining is a gastronomic adventure, all day and all night
Foodies are sure to marvel at the diverse array of 11 international and regional dining options, including 24-hour room service.
Start your day with the bountiful breakfast buffet at the airy, light-filled Kalmia restaurant, which features made-to-order eggs, Mexican favorites, luscious fruits, smoothie bar, and freshly baked pastries, plus many more sweets and savories.
For lunch, try the open-air beachfront La Cevicheria for Caribbean fusion cuisine and Mexican specialty dishes like shrimp cocktail, fish tacos, and an assortment of yummy seafood ceviches.
Dinnertime menus at Fiesta Americana Condesa Cancun are globally inspired. The resort’s flagship, El Mexicano, promises a rich Mexican cultural experience via authentic flavors, vibrant decor, and lively music. San Telmo is an Argentinian-style steakhouse, and Rosato is a white-tablecloth eatery with a menu inspired by Southern Italian cuisine. The Trattoria serves up pizza, pasta, salads, paninis, and other casual Italian fare.
You can be as active or as laid-back as you want
The daily agenda of activities begins with an aerobic workout on the beach at 8 a.m. After that, there are Spanish lessons, cooking demonstrations, volleyball games, and dance classes. Kids and teens have their own guided activities and play areas.
Or you can just relax and soak up the rays—after lathering up with sunscreen, of course. Take your pick: the Caribbean beach is stunning and seemingly endless, and the meandering two-level outdoor swimming pool is surrounded by clusters of comfy lounge chairs and stands of palm trees. Either way, refresh yourself with libations from the swim-up bar or poolside smoothie stand. Miiluma Spa is ready to pamper you with a menu of treatments that infuse essential oils with ancestral therapies. Treat yourself to a massage on the beach while you are lulled by hypnotic sounds of the surf. Or work up a sweat in the state-of-the-art fitness center.
Here are some more ways to discover Mexico
The gift shop at Fiesta Americana Condesa Cancun won’t disappoint even serious shopaholics. You’ll find colorful resort wear, eye-catching bling, a treasure trove of Mexican artwork, hand-dipped chocolates, and other sweet treats, plus all those incidentals you forgot to pack.
After the sun goes down, the frolic continues with live entertainment. The playbill varies nightly, but Mayan dancers, circus acts and fireworks are featured regularly. The indoor-outdoor Lobby Bar, which has an elevated dance floor and late-night sushi station, keeps a vigorous beat until the wee hours.
If you want to get out and explore greater Cancun, there are nearby nightclubs galore. You also can book excursions to the historic ruins of Chichen Itza, the beach town of Tulum or the amazing nature-driven Xcaret theme parks.
