Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach Cancun All Inclusive Spa Resort
Located on Cancun’s most secluded stretch of white sand beach, the Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach Cancún All Inclusive Spa Resort has reopened as an all-inclusive resort under the new brand concept, Infinite Luxury by Grand Fiesta Americana.
Each of the resort’s 602 oceanfront suites include a private terrace with views of the Caribbean and a lagoon-like pool. The resort also offers a dozen restaurants and bars, 24-hour in-suite dining, a fitness center and Coral KidZ Club Cancun.
All guests who book oceanfront suites are offered a complimentary island excursion to Isla Mujeres that includes round-trip ferry tickets and access to Zama Beach Club.
Located adjacent to the La Guarreña distillery, home of tequila brand El Tequileño, Casa Salles in Tequila, Mexico, offers 25 rooms with Ashley beds and rainfall showers, a pool, a banquet facility, a tranquility spa and Mango Cocina de Origen restaurant.
The property takes its name from a family of tequila craftsmen. More than 60 years ago, master distiller Don Jorge Salles Cuervo and his family held celebrations on the grounds that now house the hotel. His grandson, third generation Master Distiller Jorge Antonio Salles, works the copper stills at the neighboring operation.
