TripAdvisor erased my previous review on Ib.Tucan for some reason, so I try to rewrite my experience. Our family of four stayed here in May 2010, it was our first time in Mexico and we fell in love with this beautiful country. Previously, we stayed two times at Iberostar Punta Cana and knew that Iberostars are wonderful properties, so we wanted to try Iberostar in Mexico, too. We didn't regret our decision, it was the most relaxing vacation ever.
Beach here is amazing, we never had to reserve chairs at beach, enough of chairs for everyone,also, there is beach service. Only one negative thing I would say is sand, our friend hurt himself while playing volleyball. He fell and sand was very coarse with some broken sea shells, he scratched his knee pretty badly and couldn't swim in ocean because it hurt a lot.
Food was delicious, not very big variety as in other resorts we stayed in, but it was prepared well. Loved Mexican station, breakfast pastries were so delicious and I found that desserts at Iberostar Tucan were among the best we had in all-inclusive resorts. I gained 10 pounds in ten days, it tells you how I liked desserts here.Also, ice cream at pool is awesome, too.
Rooms are pretty basic, I stayed in better, but nothing bad. Really liked housekeeping here. My kids really liked kids club and activities it provided.
Will I ever return? Yes, if price is right. It is solid 4 star resort, with wonderful stuff, very kids friendly, nice restaurants and beach.
