Travel Blogs from Cancun
Well I made it into Mexico. At first I didn't think that I would make my flight as I had been taken aside to be questioned by the US immigration in Vancouver. Don’t ask me how that works seen how I was still in Canada. They took me aside to a room and I had to wait for nearly 45minutes and then this guy comes back in says your free to go. I …
Well, the relaxing 4 days in Cancun hasnt been terribly restful....a constant stream of drinking games round the pools to entertain the hoards of 18 year old springbreakers is not my idea of peace and quiet! Still I have managed to fight my way to the bar occasionally and have worked my way through the cocktail menu quite efficiently on the basis …
Arrived in Cancun on Wednesday night - not over impressed so far. I was expecting a few days lazing on a tropical beach, but the hotels are gigantic concrete blocks, there are very few palm trees to be found and the weather so far has been so windy and cloudy that there is a red flag on the beach meaning no swimming. Added to this is the fact that …

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.
