... seat to a girl who had been standing up. Much to my surprise she turned out to be a hooker and wanted to walk me back to my hotel. So I made a hasty exit without her! She had said that she worked at this bar, but then didn't know where the toilets were! I cottoned on in time and avoided what could have been an embaressing confrontation. Then it was back to the supermarket for some supplies for a light supper and then blogging whilst chatting to an intersting ...
... on the way to stock up on water. When our two groups got to the assigned map we took it in turns to hop on and off the carts to call on the houses. Lots of the houses were holiday rentals and we did come across a couple of hotels where we able to leave memorial invitations. The houses were larger than average, overlooking the sea and stood in pretty grounds. Mike did find an American resident who happily took the invite. It had been arranged for us to ...
... american! We walked around a little bit and were constantly harassed by club staff. We stopped in a small bar on a side street and ordered strawberry margaritas. When they eventually arrived the strawberries were sour so let's just say that was our cue to get the bus back to 'real' Cancun!

We made it back to Bahia Azul, to show my family where I live for the first time (packing everything in, we hadn't had the time earlier) and there they met some more of my friends and it was Monicas birthday so we did the traditional "mordida mordida" and pushed her face into the cake, but then they also made ...

University conversation classes have been going well, and I've met some lovely Mexican students and I'm forcing each one of them to be my friend :) They are all so lovely and welcoming that it feels like I've been working there for ages, strange to think I've only just completed ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Barcelo Tucancun Beach
We have just returned from this resort - and what a wonderful time we had. The staff are some of the most friendly I have ever encountered!! The food is good, especially the buffet(s) and the snack place by the pool. The Italian Restaurant is better than the a la carte restaurant, but still is not as good as the buffet(s).
Incredible all round resort
My entire family just returned from our holiday, December 28 to January 5, 2003. What a trip! If anyone out there is looking for a warm and friendly hotel with incredible staff and a feeling of security stay at the Tucan Cun Beach Resort & Villas. The Entertainment staff were amazing and if you do go make sure that you see all of the evening shows. You will not be disappointed.
If your looking for fun this is it!
I have stayed at several places in cun and this was the most fun!!! The staff was cool! The rooms were decent. For Cancun the food was good. I am definitly staying here again, in June. Daytime pool activities were a blast. Staff really got in to it. Music was great and so were the drinks.
Very disappointed. Food bland, and service poor. Rooms in the old tower dirty, musty and full of cockroaches. Had to fight with desk and make a scene to get a room in the new tower.
Restaurants serve same food all week. Most food had no taste or if it did it tasted stale. Most close at 9:00pm and there is no snack bar.
Pool closes at 6:00pm and all lights are turned off outside. This forces you into the lobby bar, which is very hot and overcrowded. Most people leave the hotel and go downtown as a result.
Would not stay here again. Only bonus is beach which is very nice. But then again, the whole strip has access to the same beach, so choose another hotel. This one is a disappointment.
I will NEVER return to this hotel again. This hotel advertises as a 4 star, when it is actually a 2 star. A total waste of $1850.00 for one week!!!!!! I was there in April 2002 with three girlfriends between the ages of 24-26. We are easy going and just wanted to have a good time. From the moment we arrived we experienced rude and unhelpful staff that lied to us the ENTIRE week.
Wow, what a fantastic vacation. The beach was terrific.
Wow. What an experience. I stayed at Tucancun from Jan24 to Feb1 2003 (thanks to my handy time machine)
Best deal for all-inclusive!
I stayed at the Tucan Cun Beach resort last March. Here's my take:
rooms: Ocean-view is a must!
food: average (Mexican restaurant is VERY good)
price: best deal for all inclusive
I would definately stay here again.
I went with a friend and we were looking for a budget holiday. This certainly fit the bill. The room was clean and spacious, with a wrap-around balcony. We faced the lagoon, so had the sunset view. We met wonderful people and had a lot of fun with them. The staff was courteous and accomodating. The food was okay, definitely not top of the line, but good, standard fare. The three pools were beautiful and easy access to the beach. The nightly entertainment was a hoot! Overall, we were very pleased with the resort.
