It’s time to stay at the Fiesta Americana Condesa in Cancun!

While in Cancun I was able to enjoy the Fiesta Americana Condesa and I would love to send you there! It was an absolutely lovely property with 4 excellent restaurants, 3 bars, daily activities and nightly entertainment.  This resort is family friendly and offers children separate ‘kids clubs’ based on their ages/interests (unlike some resorts that expect the 12 year olds to share a space with the toddlers).  That being said, it is also great for adults and couples with separate pool areas, swim up bars, and beautiful Tropical Casitas.

    Gran Melia Cancun takes care of its Guests!

    If you travel a lot like I do, you know that there are a few things that make your hotel stay extremely more enjoyable and stress free (and isn’t that the goal?). The Gran Melia in Cancun is one of the few hotels that offer you the following amenities that make every traveler’s stay more magical and there are direct flights to Cancun from many US cities!

    FREE WIRELESS INTERNET THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE PROPERTY! This is by far, one of the most important amenities for me while staying at any hotel. Like so many other travelers these days, I need to work a few minutes here and there even when I am on vacation. Most hotels have ‘spotty’ internet and you need to frequently reconnect, need to be in the lobby area, or you need to be stationed in your room with a connecting wire. Once you check into the Gran Melia Cancun you can accept their Wi-Fi and you are connected EVERYWHERE, without interruption, and without any codes or passwords. I cannot emphasize how wonderful it was to always be able to get an email, type a quick reply and put my phone or laptop away – not having to reconnect or run back to my room make the Gran Melia my absolute favorite hotel in Cancun!

    EXTRA LARGE TOWELS AND LOTS OF THEM! Remember the last time you were in a hotel and there were only 2 towels and you wanted to use them both but need to save one for your significant other? And to top it off the towel was so small you could hardly wrap it around your body? The Gran Melia Cancun will make sure you never have this experience. Your room will be stocked with 4-6 extra-large (yes, I really mean extra-large!) towels for your convenience. I know my fellow travelers understand my excitement of this great amenity and those of you who are new travelers will definitely appreciate it when you go.

    A SELECTION OF PILLOWS. If you are staying 3 nights or 10 nights at a hotel, there is nothing worse than being stuck with a pillow you do not like – be it too hard or too soft. The Gran Melia offers you both options in your room to ensure you get a great night sleep so you can wake up well rested and enjoy your vacation to the fullest.

    BATHROBES AND SLIPPERS. It is always a nice to have at your disposal - soft cotton bathrobes and slippers. These are nice to have for sitting on your balcony or answering the door for room service. I always appreciate it when a hotel leaves me a robe and slippers! Gran Melia has robes and slippers in all of their rooms!

    FOOD AND BEVERAGE SERVICE AROUND THE POOL AND ON THE BEACH! I know it’s hard to believe, but not every hotel offers you food and beverage service around the pool and/or on the beach. The Gran Melia has an extremely friendly, multi-lingual staff that offers you a full menu of food and drink service. This may not seem important when researching for hotels, but I promise you that once you are on your beach chair and comfortable, it is very nice to have someone bring you your drinks rather than having to collect any important personal belongings and make your way to the bar. This is a “must” for any traveler wanting to spend hours at the pool or beach!
