The click of high heels and Italian loafers on the marble floor of a six-story atrium lobby with stained-glass ceiling signifies opulence. A corridor off the Fiesta's lobby contains gardens and street lamps in the center, restaurants and a French caf? on one side, and modern sculptures on the other. This stylishness and spaciousness attracts discriminating guests from around the world.
Located on the north side of Punta Cancun and thus shielded from the open sea, Fiesta Americana's 300-meter (328-yard) beach provides calm-water swimming in most weather conditions. Thatched-roof palapas supply shade on the beach. Above the beach, a 200-meter-long (219-yard) heated, freeform pool with raised levels on both ends cascading into a middle level includes channels running under stone bridges and three swim-up bars. Sundecks and tropical gardens border the pool. A 7-meter (24-ft) children's pool features a water slide from a playground with a rubber-mat floor. The resort's watersports center rents personal watercraft, small sailboats, snorkeling gear, and kayaks and offers banana-boat rides, parasailing flights, waterskiing, scuba-diving instruction, and snorkeling excursions for surcharges. AquaWorld Marina 6.5 km (4 miles) away on Nichupt? Lagoon also offers many water sports, including fishing trips and scuba diving and snorkeling excursions.
