We traveled with a group of 5 couples. We ended up landing in Cancun during Hurricane Ida and was fearful of what to expect. The resort did not have a lot of other tourists, the beach was closed b/c the waves were up to the resort walls, a few of the restaurants were closed b/c of the storm....BUT, we had...

Went with wife and teenage kids (16+13) for a week in Feb 2010. We chose Barcelo Tucancun based upon Internet reviews and an excellent price. Based upon the price (USD733 pp/week including roundtrip flight from New York) we expected less than luxury, but was otherwise a bit in doubt of what to expect. This was our first all-inclusive, too, so...

I couldn't believe that we could travel to an all-inclusive via Orbitz for only $660 for 8 days and 7 nights in February, inclduing airfare. I kept thinking, "something has to be wrong. The place must be a dump." We were pleasantly surprised when we reviewed others' impressions, took the trip and discovered, "it was true!" A fantastic deal! How...

Our Minnesota group of 12 just returned from our stay at the Barcelo Tucancun. Over the past 10+ years we have stayed at this resort and this year we were very disappointed in the changes that have taken place. The food wasn't as good, (individuals in our group got sick from the food), Previous years the entertainment group had a...

I love to use hotel reviews before I book. I knew I wasn't getting a 5 star but I thought the reviews were good enough to book this quick trip for a good price. After returning I don't think I would go back there. You can read everyone's take but here are the pros and cons highlights: Pros 3 pools,...

I was very happy that I read the reviews about this hotel before I booked. I knew going into this that the front desk staff would be slow and hard to deal with and that I would have to make reservations for meals. If I had not known to expect those things, I may have had a less enjoyable experience....

This was our first trip to Cancun. Selected the resort becaused its location, size and the reviews. Unfortunately our experience was far from good. First, it took 3 days to change our room (center block) which was above the exhaust fans operating 24 hours. The front desk staff were not concerned, did not apologize for the discomfort, and were indifferent....

This resort was wonderful. It had a bit of everything. First of all it is right in between the new beautiful beach and the Kulkulkan Mall which is amazing. Great prices on souveniers at the Tequilla Museum in the mall if you are looking. The store is located upstairs in the mall. There are three pools. #1 ~ the entertainment...

After booking our trip, my fiance and I read the numerous reviews for this hotel and were a little fearful of what we would get once we reached our destination. In our experience the negative reviews were off the mark. We found our accomodations clean and comfortable. The King-size bed was very comfortable the separated shower and sink area were...
