Iberostar Tucan was AMAZING!!!!!! my boyfriend and I went on our very first vacation away!! We are a 22 year old couple, and did not know what to expect. Upon arriving at the resort on Nov 7th '13, we were in awe! The lobbys are gorgeous, clean and staff were immediately pleasant! We quickly realized how friendly and hardworking ALL staff are! The landscaping was beautiful, well kept and all the animals ie; flamingos,ring tailed lemurs, peacocks, monkeys etc had us both running around stunned!
The POOL was spacious and clean as well, where various activities took part ie :water aerobics,yoga nearby, and scuba lessons took place; Dennis was great giving our scuba experience in the pool, friendly, passionate about scuba & the ocean world, even joined in with our dancing (once you start zumba, you just don't wanna stop!!).
The BEACH was swim-able, with white sand and gorgeous blue salt water to swim in! There was lots of beach recliners, small palapas, umbrellas and fresh clean towels readily available. Staff serving drinks on the beach were incredible!! so hardworking, and remembered our drink orders from previous days!! WOW! As well as the beach bar, drinks were made quick and in super friendly manner! Zumba on the beach was such a blast! Tons of people of various ages jumped up to have some fun, Mauricio was a hoot & great instructor! (so glad it was so open to everyone, my boyfriend who "doesn't dance" got up with me!!) We also had an afternoon of games one day (which I normally wouldnt play, but life's short.. so why not!)
RESTERAUNT buffets were great, hot, fresh and clean! (I am celiac (allergic to gluten) and lactose intolerant was still able to eat most of the dishes!!) Andy, our breakfast buffet server was so sweet, hardworking and eager to serve us, everyday! My boyfriend and I both recommend the japenese a la carte!! Food and experience was phenomenal!
We went to a few of the evening shows Yohel was a great entertainer and we also went to Mascara the night club, we had tons of fun with a wide range of age groups, tho because of the time of year we went, the club was not super busy.
Half way through our trip we did an excursion to Tulum thru Alltournative, AMAZING AS WELL. Tho, of course I came into contact with a plant and had a breakout of blisters on my mouth and eye, my boyfriend took me down to the MEDICAL CENTER in the Ibersotar lobby at 630am (it was open 24 hrs) I was very panicked but Edmund, the doctor on site was great!! Talked me through it,made recommendations, and i was back cleared up almost immediately!
LOBBY BAR at the quetzal side, was where we headed each evening after dinner Micaela is wonderful and so funny! Man that girl can hustle, hardworking and a sweetie as well!!
We ventured down the beach(about 25min walk, or 5 min cab ) into the town of Playa Del Carmen, shopping,restaurants, nightlife and bars is close by!
My boyfriend and I had such a wonderful time and would recommend this resort to anyone, of any age group!! had the perfect mix of relaxation, as well as upbeat fun! We both had the week of our lives, fell in love with Mexico, the people,food, resort and more in love with each other & what this beautiful world has to offer ! :)
