We got here 1 half hour before kitchen was open, so the very friendly maitre di offered our group of 7 adults a free tequila tasting, which was very elegantly done, 3 different tequilas and very informative. Then we were taken into the beautiful dining room for dinner with floor to ceiling stained glass like a cathedral. Food was very... More

Just go, especially if you're from the states. I thought I knew about tequila because I drink too much, but apparently there's a lot more I didn't know that I got to learn at our complimentary tequila tasting lesson after the fanciest, most impressively served Mexican dinner my wife and I have ever had. Being the first meal on our... More

La Joya is a excellent gourmet Mexican restaurant at Fiesta Americana Coral Beach in Cancun . The restaurant provides customers with a unique experience, Tequila tasting. We had a fantastic tequila sommelier, Mauricio. It was indeed an incredible educational experience. I strongly recommend it.

Good was great. Grouper was light and tasty. Merida style antonjitos were tasty as well Oscar did a wonderful job with the tequila tasting! Prices were not bad at all for a restaurant in a high end hotel.

My wife and I were visiting the beach when hunger pang struck. We were right in front of this huge facility and decided to give the restaurant a try. We were early for dinner and had to wait a few minutes to be seated. We were served some sweet potato chips and three salsas. All of them good. We ordered... More

The four of us thoroughly enjoyed this evening; the Mariachi band and the other musicians created a great ambiance, which was only surpassed by the food experience. Our guests shared the rack of lamb and it said it was extraordinary. My wife enjoyed sea bass and my Mexican steak was superbly seasoned and paired with a chicken enchilada, with mole... More
