    Food was great. Of course not americanized but I feel compared well to other trips we've taken.

    Drinks.....well somewhat watered down as usual but when you drink from 9am to midnight that's probally a good thing. Still had some foggy mornings!!

    Made a trip to Isla. Not extremely crazy but I felt worth it. We booked our trip as a package but would recommend making voyage on your own.

    Beach was pretty nice. Had a shelf as you probally already know but no big deal. Oh yeah, I think the current is especially strong in front of this resort. Always had red flags out. The first day we were there (well liquored up) we all ran out into the ocean and were whistled in when we got up to our waists. I noticed it was common practice and a lot of people were whistled in. Be careful!!

    Make sure to tell Gloria that "shabba dabba" said hi. :D

    Still weird stuff going on with this hotel. Another poster on tripadvisor was told to cancel by his travel agent & try to rebook at another hotel. I got an e-mail from hotwire.com (where I booked my trip), that they were changing their rating to a 3* and that I could cancel if I wanted & they would help me rebook elsewhere. Since I've only heard good things from those that have returned, I have opted to keep the reservation at the Tucancun, but do wonder what's going on with these travel agents and what information that they're getting :?: :?:

    I was just there from 5/17-5/23. We had the best time. The activities staff was fantastic. Angel, Jorge, Recipe (Christian), Odett, Gloria, and Pokeman (Louis). They busted their butts and every day had us very busy having fun.

    The resort is beautiful. The rooms were very nice. We had one in the main tower and our friends were in the Northern tower. The maid service was great.

    The crew in the seafood restaurant were nothing less than first class. David and his crew took care of us each time we ate there (3 times).

    The front desk could use a little help with accomodating requests, but the hotel was busy and not all of their rooms were open yet. We just wanted to be in the same tower and the same floor with our friends, but in the end we were hardly ever in them.

    When the HZ lost power, we were in the lobby waiting to go to The City with the entertainment staff and I saw first hand how quickly the staff reacted and did what they could to get lights on and help those stuck in the elevators. The generators started within seconds.

    The beach was huge and beautiful. I was concerned about the wall, but it was no problem when we got there. I can't believe the sea shells we found. Sand dollars whole ones, too. Yes, the red flags were up, but we were never whistled in. We played with boogie boards and had a riot.

    There aren't many hotels open going north and just a handfull going south. We felt like we owned the beach.

    I loved the hotel and would definetly go back. But after meeting the BBG folk at Charlos N Charlies, I may have a new hotel to check out. HEE HEE.

    My camera broke so I don't have a lot. Hope this is helpful to any future travelers.

    We were at the Barcelo from May 24-31 and we had a blast! I didn't know what to expect after reading some of the reviews on this site, but we were more than satisfied. Rooms were cool and clean, food was great, beach was beautiful, staff helpful...drinks excellent...I could go on and on...I took my 18 yr old son and friend and they didn't want to leave! We will definitely stay at the Tucancun when we return to Cancun! It was awesome! Great hotel! If you want a party, you will find it...if you want to spend time alone, you can find that too. I can't imagine anyone not enjoying this place--we had the time of our lives!!!

    Has anyone had a problem with being charged for things that they did not use or do at this resort? I have been reading negative things on Tripadvisor. :-|

    We were just there, checked out on Friday at noon. We had NO problems at all, and had 2 rooms. The problems seem to center around groups of teens/young adults. After seeing how some of them behave, I almost understand. The hotel is in good condition, the beach is awesome, pools are great, food was fine (nothing spectacular, but I've had far far worse), and drinks were plenty strong. My kids fell in love with this resort and are already planning a return trip for next summer!

    Drinks

    I have been to the Riu Cancun but our group is looking for a little less hotel for less $$. We are thinking of going to the Tucancun. From everything I have read it sounds perfect for us. Few questions if anyone can please help?

    What type of beer do they serve? We would like to be able to drink Dos Equis, Tecate etc.

    Wine? I love wine but know the varieties are usually one type of red and one type of white in these resorts. Do they have more?

    Are you able to wade in the ocean? I know the Carribbean side is very rough. Just wondering if it is best to just sunbathe on the beach or if you can wade out into the water?

    About reservations: When you make a reservation at a restaurant do they bring your food out in courses? We made reservations at previous all inclusives and we LOVED how they did this. MUCH better than buffet style.


    Any help is greatly appreciated. I scanned through all the posts in this forum and could not find any info on these topics.

    Thanks!

    Water

    So, do all rooms have a stocked minibar? And do they stock a couple of bottles of water in it every day?

    We are scheduled to arrive in May and are a bit nervous after reading some pretty negative reviews.

    Cell Service

    Anyone know if Verizon cell service works in Cancun?

    I believe it does. You can call Verizon and they can set you up with an international plan for like a month or something to cover when you are there. I believe there are some stickies at the top of the Cancun Info or Breakers forum that also explains some options about using cell phones in Cancun.

    I do use Verizon as well and I did recieve a call without the international plan, but I didn't try to dial out.

    Hope this helps a bit.

    Sunshine Club - Barcelo Tucancun. How do u book the villas?

    The Barcelo Tucancun has a number of 2 bedroom villas called The Sunshine Club. I've been to a number of travel websites as well as timeshare rental websites. So far everyone I've checked has no villas available for rent, for any timeslot.

    Has anybody stayed in one of the villas. I would appreciate any info on how to go about renting one. We really want to stay at this resort, but we need a villa.

    Any info appreciated.
