IB Tucan VS IB Quetzel

I understand that these are just different sides of the same hotel. However, the Tucan is ranked # 4 on TripAdvisor while the Quetzel is ranked #10. APple will not book the Tucan unless you take it as a package with air (which I don't need) and FunJet books the Quetzel. Can anyone account for the difference in the ratings of these two? THanks

The only differences are the way the rooms face, and the lobby bars - as far as I can tell. Somebody else maybe can tell you another difference. As far as the difference in the bars, the Tucan bar seems to be livlier than the Quetzal. Either way, same hotel - just different names.

It doesn't matter which side you stay in, you get to use everything on the property so I would just book with whichever one you can get the best deal. I'm not sure why the ratings would be different, I think it might just be that less people who have stayed on the Quetzal side have given ratings.

I was at the Tucan in November 2005 and they are both in the same resort. At that time the Tucan was the only resort open. It apearred that the quezel had sufford more damage from Wilma and there was srill work going on there. I felt that the Tucan might be newer than the Quetzel and that might lead to higher rankings, but you can use everthing on either side of the resort. The Tucan is on the south side of the resort.

We were there and they are really one resort. It really doesn't matter which side you're at, they are both good.
