Fiesta Americana Condesa- Cancun, Mexico

Well, I’ve taken a couple months off from writing, but now I’m back and have plenty to share with you.  We did a lot of travelling this summer, so I have quite a bit to share with you on our many adventures.

Fiesta American Condesa

At the end of May my husband and I, along with another couple spent five relaxing nights at the Fiesta Americana Condesa in Cancun, Mexico.  FAC is an all-inclusive, four-star resort with all the right amenities.  We were looking for a relaxing stay with not a lot of hassles and that is just what we got.  FAC is not a huge resort, but it is not small either.  In my opinion, it is just the right size to have a relaxing time, but still have activities to keep you entertained.

There are two pools, one large one that includes the kid’s pool cordoned off on one end, the sports area with a volley ball net, and the ever popular pool bar.  This is where you could find us if we were not laying by the beach.  The other pool is on the upper part of the pool area and is more quiet and relaxing with an infinity edge water fall spilling over to the pool below.  Foam rafts are provided to enhance your tanning experience, and there was never a shortage of lounge chairs to get lost in a good book in with your fruity, umbrella drink.

My birthday surprise from the servers in the Asian restaurant

Four restaurants are housed on property which included Mexican, Asian, Italian, and the buffet.  The only one I was not impressed with was the Mexican restaurant.  Besides the buffet, you can expect to spend at least a couple of hours for your dining experience as no one is in a hurry to get anything done.  But I guess we are just used to the hustle and bustle of the US.  We ate at the Asian restaurant for my birthday and the servers were kind enough to personalize my dessert, sing to me, and bring me a very yummy tequila liqueur shot.

The beautiful beach

The beach was absolutely beautiful with the soft, white sand and the turquoise waters of the Caribbean ocean.  We usually started out in the chairs under the shade of the palapas before venturing out to play in the water.  Here again there were always lounge chairs available.  The resort was not crowded, but we were not there during peak season either.  A lot of people would drag the chairs down to the water.   If you needed a drink, you usually didn’t have to wait long because there were always servers coming by.  There was a bar on the beach, but it was not open when we were there, probably because it was the off season.

The lounge in the lobby always had people sprinkled through it.  Most nights they had live music.  It was a great place to meet up with people that you chatted with at the pool during the day and have a night cap with them before turning in for the night.  This was also the meeting place where you could meet up with the people from the entertainment staff and they would take you out to the clubs until the wee hours of the morning.  We chose to pass on this particular activity.

If you are looking for a place in Cancun to get a relaxing vacation, FAC has what you need.  These are just a few of the many things I enjoyed about our stay.  I hope to find myself again one day enjoying a mojito on the sandy beach of Fiesta Americana Condesa .
