    For those worried about the hotel and the beach. We were staying next door at Villas Marlin for February & March and watched all the work going on at Tucancun. They appear to have done a great job, refurbished the pool area, all new palapas, everything shined up nicely..
    The beach is back, big time. The recovery program is working just great. You will have a beach about 200 feet deep to lay/play on. And of course, you are located right behind Plaza Kulkulcan, a very high class indoor mall.

    Has anyone heard if the 22nd still stands? Only 2 weeks left, making sure they are not going to extend the opening date.

    22nd is as good as gold. Barcelo confirmed this as well as some posts I've read which indicate the upgrades etc. are very nice....eluding that the upgrades had been completed.

    Don't worry!! I have been chatting back and forth with a person from the Barcelo all week. As well, I just got off the phone with my travel company and she said that is old information. I think your travel agent has some outdated info!!

    ps. I arrive in 5 days. I'm not worried. :cool:

    We were also told that the construction is still majorly underway. So we would not have all the ammenities that the hotel has to offer and that we would probably be kept up at night. Is any of this true?

    Thank you for your help!!!

    last word is that the Tucancun is open with still a few more things to do. Some painting,lights and theater is not finished. No matter to me. I will be staying there starting tomorrow as planned.

    See whoever there.

    FLOODING!!!!

    Has anyone else heard that 2 buildings at Tucancun have flooded. It was posted on tripadvisor tonight but I have heard nothing else. The guy/girl that posted said they were scheduled for April 29th and have been moved down to Playa. If anyone gets any info, please post. I'm going on May 10th, but I know a few of yall are going sooner. This sucks. The post stated that their travel agent called them earlier this evening. I'd advise everyone leaving soon to call your agent to make sure everything is cool. Hopefully this is a minor problem, but 2 floors drenched sounds pretty bad.

    So, were two floors flooded or two buildings. That's a big difference.

    Sorry about that. The posts stated 2 floors and then he reposted that the travel agent said it was 2 buildings. You can see the posts under forums on tripadvisor for Tucancun. I spoke to my travel agent this morning and she has not gotten any word, so she is checking directly with the hotel and contacting me later. Last night I called Funjet and they said that they were moving people to Barcelo Maya earlier this week. It's one f'ing thing after another.

    Latest info regarding flooding... not sure what to believe anymore.

    From Tripadvisor: "I'm not sure how helpful this is but I called the 800 barcelo number and they told me that it was a problem with hot water and that some people had complained and they had moved them (if they wanted to be moved) to the other Barcelo resort. We are arriving next Thursday and they told me there wasn't a water main break, everything is up and running and we shouldn't have any problems. He also said the hot water situation had been resolved. I sure hope the information they were giving out is correct."

    Very different from the original post saying 2 buildings being flooded. And for that 800 Barcelo number... they know less info than the guy who hangs out in front of our office playing the guitar.

    Flooding

    I guess the guy that posted that stuff about Tucancun water main break on Tripadvisor was high or on acid. I received this just minutes ago.

    Dear Jason,

    I just spoke with our On-Site TNT representative in Cancun, who just verified with the hotel directly that the property is perfectly fine.

    I apologize for any misunderstanding and wish you the best on your upcoming vacation.

    Kind Regards,
