We spent a week at the tucan November 6th 2012. I have nothing negative to say about this hotel . Everything was great , Check out the Japanese restaurant it's a treat . This hotel cares about the animals, the environment and does what it takes to take care of it . We were privileged to see mama monkey every day with her babies . The jungle part is very nice , you can sit on a bench or even have a massage and just relax and listen. The hotel is in a U shape the open side the beach and the two sides are rooms . Building 10 tucan and 20 quetzal are the only ones that have ocean front rooms and then you walk back 10 buildings on each side . Number 12 tucan side is where we were or 22 are beside the pool and a few seconds from the beach . 15 and 25 are closer to the show area so can be a little loud. We then moved to 2023 because I wanted an ocean front . Same decor in the rooms , very spacious and clean .
The weather was on our side sunny everyday not a drop of rain . They have recycling bins a little everywhere , now if the people can educate themselves and use them ..it would make a difference . :)
The stretch of beach is playacar and it's wonderful . Playacar beach is from the first hotel located beside senior frog or the beginning of the 5th avenue in playa del Carmen , the playacar palace and the last one is the sandos . The tucan is the beside the sandos and 2 and half kilometers from the 5th avenue . So if you walk at a normal pace of 10 minutes per K you are about 25 minutes’ walk from the 5th avenue . The city of playacar is beautifull and safe .
We have stayed at the riu palace Riviera maya and the playacar palace in the past .
Would go back to the iberostar anytime .
