Review Summary


  • In the Hotel Zone, within walking distance to dining
  • On a white-sand beach (but tiny in high tide)
  • One, two-, and three-bedroom villas great for families and groups
  • Nice-sized, clean rooms with generic but contemporary decor, flat-screen TVs, and a furnished balcony or terrace
  • All rooms have at least a fully stocked kitchenette
  • Nice fitness center with modern machines and a sauna
  • Large family pool with volleyball net and a kiddy pool
  • Great kids' club with lots of daily activities, and a playground
  • Decent spa and beauty salon


  • Internet available in the lobby only
  • Only one expensive restaurant and a lobby bar
  • Annoying time-share presentations upon arrival
  • Not all rooms have a stovetop (but all have a microwave)
  • Ageing property with some flaking walls

Bottom Line

Compared to neighboring properties, the 179-room Fiesta Americana is a small hotel that offers a great value for families. It's less party-oriented than most of the Hotel Zone properties, and has a wide range of activities and amenities designed for travelers with kids: a kiddy pool, a playground, a kids’ club; plus large, clean, multi-room suites with at least a kitchenette with a mini-fridge and a microwave. The large pool, the nice beach, the spa, the spacious fitness center with sauna, and the central location are perks as well. But it’s an aging property, so expect a few flaking walls, as well as only the most basic resort amenities for adults.

Map of Fiesta Americana Villas Cancun

The Fiesta Americana is located on the northern side of resort-packed, party-oriented Hotel Zone. It’s right in the heart of the action, with dozens of restaurants, stores, and bars an easy walk away, and miles and miles of white-sand beach at its doorstep.

The Zona Hotelera (or Hotel Zone) is the megaresort, mega-mall area in Isla Cancun that caters to mass tourism. The nightlife is one of its main draws, as are its shops and restaurants -- but there's little of Cancun's original flavor here. To get a hint of what that is, you'll have to take a 15-minute cab to Ciudad Cancun, the real downtown, where smaller, better restaurants, local shops, and quieter bars are located.

  • 30-minute drive to the airport
  • 15-minute drive to downtown Cancun (Ciudad Cancun)
  • 45-minute drive to snorkeling and quiet beaches in Puerto Morelos
  • 1-hour drive to Playa del Carmen, a laid-back and bustling town with great shopping, and a well-heeled crowd
  • 1-hour-45-minute drive to the Mayan ruins at Tulum
  • 2-hour-40-minute drive to Chichen Itza ruins
