We had a great time at Tucan! It was a nice hotel and all the employees were very kind and friendly. The food in the buffet was ok but not great. The Japanese restaurant was the best, I thought. Rooms were nice but the beds are hard! Nice beach area and pools and grounds. I was a little disappointed that the "free" things to do on the beach aren't really free. They have catamarans to take out for free but if you don't know how to sail, you have to pay 39.00 for a lesson. They have kayaks but the wind makes it hard to maneuver them close to the beach.
They have snorkel equipment but there is nothing to see close to the beach but sand. If you go further out to try to see something it is quite a swim. Or... they take you to a reef but, again, it is 39.00 per person. I wanted a boogie board to try to play with on the waves but they only had those for sale in a store and they were around 25.00 and there was no way I could get it in my suitcase to bring it home. The hotel daily activities and shows were a bit cheesy. I do want to say how wonderful the people were with Apple Vacations. They were very knowledgeable and helpful and made sure we were safe and had a great time.
