    In hopes of stirring up conversation about the Barcelo I will ask if there are a section of rooms at this resort that you DON"T want to stay in?

    Anything you did at the resort that was memorable that you would recommend?

    Signed,

    Group of nine turning Cancun on it's head April 26th - May 3rd.

    Any body been to this hotel lately - after hurricane?

    We are thinking about booking this vacation - April 25 to May 2 or April 22 to April 29; either way, does anyone know what the conditions are like? Are the beaches still there? Any info would be appreciated :)

    We have stayed in this area a few years ago (Carribean Village) so I think I know right where this is - - just extremely worried about the conditions......too cheap to believe it is good.

    Thanks
    Cancun or Bust!

    I was extremely worried myself when we booked and have done a ton a reading on the conditions and now feel very comfortable. I have emailed Barcelo several times and they have assured me that things will be A'ok.

    From what I understand the resort will be doing some major renovating...mainly updating some so-so things from before. So when finished the resort should be better than pre Wilma. :D

    Also, they should be fixing the beach in front of the Barcelo this week. I have been waiting for updates and I will post when finished. Plenty early before the end of April. :cool:

    Thanks for the info - do you have the e-mail address for the Barcelo? I would like to contact them myself. Have you been there before? We were just making sure the swim up bar wasn't destroyed (ha ha)

    I think the price is unbelievable - $1685 for 2 people from Chicago.

    Thanks again....

    We have booked here for 1 week in June. This will be my husband & I's 2nd trip, the first for our 3 kids. We also booked thru the 75th anniversary special pricing, and got an unbelievably awesome deal. The previous trip reports seem like any other hotel. Plenty of great reports, and plenty of bad, crabby reports. With what we paid, the food can't be bad enough for me to feel like we got a bad deal.

    Those of you going in April, May, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE post updates on the hotel w/pics if you can. Also, if anyone has a way to contact the hotel direct, I would be forever greatful. We had to book 2 rooms, and I want to be sure to request double beds in both rooms, as well as adjacent rooms!

    Looking forward to it - ended up through Apple Vacations - unbelievable deal, so couldn't go wrong.....had to wait for after April 15 (work for accounting firm) so we will be ready to Rock.

    Did you ever get a reply on good and/or bad room numbers? That is always good info to have.

    Thanks again -

    No information about bad room numbers....however I did read somewhere that the "tower" was a nice place to be booked. Not sure exactly what that means. But as long as I have sun, sand, beer and music I'll be happy.

    We are deciding today about this hotel and I read the north tower was nice to view the ocean.

    Hope that helps. Didn't read anything about bad rooms.

    Sorry guys... no pictures yet of the beach in front of the Tucancun. BUT, it will look like this...

    (taken at the Sands on March 20th, just two resorts down)
    http://www.afterwilma.info/UserFiles/Image/20060320_sands-l.jpg

    In fact, the Tucancun is the red brick building in the background.

    Will post pix as soon as.

    Since the resort remains closed, there are no returning vacationers from the Tucancun to provide pics and remarks. Best bet is if Steve, Brant or others (maybe even Vic), could swing by and take a quickie pic. Will be harder to get around tho, once the Presidential summit is fully underway.

    I understand the hotel remains closed. And any up dates or pics will be greatly appreciated from whom ever can get them. Again thanks to all the folks living in Cancun who passes on all the greatly appreciated info.
