Just got back from a week’s stay at the Fiesta Americana Condesa (April 21st to 27th). I was a little hesitant about this vacation as in the past my experience with an All-Inclusive resort hasn't been great (bad food, slow service, etc) However - this Resort has changed that for me. My husband and I traveled with another couple (both of us in Mid to late 30s/early 40s) and from check in to check out we were impressed. Upon check in - Cesar at the front desk was helpful and accommodating. WE arrived early, around 11am, however they allowed for us to check in and even took us to a few rooms so we could pick. We decided on an ocean front room in the sun Tower (room 180). Yes, we did have an upgrade charge, however, very pleased we upgraded. Our room was large and our patio was HUGE with a Jacuzzi tub. The previous reviews do say the Beds are FIRM...and we'll yes, that was the case and the showers were a little tough to get in and out of, especially after a day at the pool enjoying grown up cocktails. Another plus with this resort -- the restaurants. None of them required a reservation. You just would show up - and if they could seat you - they would or put you on the wait list. We had no troubles at all going to all 3 of the restaurants (Mexican, Italian and Asian) as well as the Buffet for one night. Food at all three was good. Some items were better than others, but overall very good. Special thanks to Eduardo at the "fish taco" restaurant by the pool. We met him on the first day and he took special care of us all week. Fish and Shrimp Taco's were both Excellent! We mainly spent our afternoons by the pool. We did not have any trouble getting seats as in some of the other reviews state. During our visit - it was also mainly couples from the US or from Brazil/Argentina. Not many children or families. I guess due to school still being in session. Great for us! Efrahim at the pool bar made up special shots and drinks daily. Some of the names were pretty funny - and we'll quite appropriate. You'll just have to see yourself. Also -- they had name brand liquor and poured the drinks pretty heavily:)
The Pool Entertainment staff was Great - they kept the activities rolling and would encourage you to play along or read your body language and know to leave you alone. Dario, Cesar, Marcos, Xavier and a special thanks to Margarita for having such patience trying to teach my husband how to Salsa!
Another thing to note - the resort always felt safe. There were lifeguards down by the water and security stationed around the property keeping those who did not belong out. The resort I would say is about 7 miles away from "downtown" Cancun and you can either take a taxi for about $12 us or the Bus for $1 each way. We ran down the sidewalks by the resorts in the AM the sidewalks were clean and seemed OK. There were police cars up and down the street and we even ran by the Police station.
The nightly entertainment put on by the resort was fun. Did the performers come from Broadway, No, but it was entertaining and something fun to do. We saw the Michael Jackson show, Magic show and the Caribbean show. All well done.
Overall - My experience here was fantastic. The food was very good at every turn (especially the egg white omelets and FRESH banana bread - yum). I would definitely recommend this resort. From reading some of the negative reviews I think a lot of the experience depends on time of year and what you make of it. If you travel at high/peak season it will be more crowded and service will probably be strained.
