The best part of this resort is its jungle. Seeing the animals every day is like an excursion in itself. There are monkeys, flamingos, peacocks, roosters, swans, and these funny giant rat/bunny mixture looking animals. BEACH: the best in the area. Visited the other Iberostars and also a RIU and the walk from those resorts to the beach is very...

Food was, adequate at best. Serving times were confusing. Little to no soundproofing in the rooms, so we were awoken by screaming kids, yelling drunkards, etc.

Iberostar Tucan/Quetzel.. Just back on 2/6 and the beach was open from 2/1-2/6. There is still an orange fence that you must walk through however, it isn't too invasive view- wise and really no noise or chaos from any work. In fact, all work was quite far away. Everything is great at this resort! So many awesome creatures, jungle area,...

Iberostar Tucan in Playa del Carmen is a beautiful place. Nice walkways thru the resort in a jungle setting. Wildlife and birds everywhere. The staff at the buffets were very accommodating, and the food was very good to other resorts I have stayed at. The Staff at the check in desk are somewhat less helpful in accommodating you then anywhere...

This review will be placed in both Iberostar Tucan and Iberostar Paraiso Beach - because we wound up staying in both. This year we decided to return toTucan for the 6th time after 3 years of wandering through other mexican hotels. Upon arrival we learned that the beach was closed for government-sponsored repairs. The hotel was probably 1/3 full, and...
