Refurbished Barcelo Tucancun Beach Set to Open Nov. 15
Following a $1 million refurbishment, the Barcelo Tucancun Beach is due to open this month with a new look and feel sure to delight both repeat and new guests.
The 334-room, four-star property, located on the northern tip of the Yucatan Peninsula just a few steps from the Caribbean and the Nichupte Lagoon, will debut several newly revamped features, including a new clubhouse with lobby, lobby bar, terrace, on-site boutiques, 24-hour self-service snack shop, fitness center and Club Premium Lounge, as well as such new appointments as fresh tiling and decor throughout.
Although the property will sport a new look, guests can be certain the resort's four restaurants will continue their tradition of tantalizing guests with regional and international fare.
The most significant change will be the new La Trattoria Ristorante Italiano, which replaces the Spanish eatery, the Don Quijote, and will feature fresh pastas and other Italian delicacies. When not enjoying gourmet meals, guests of the property can take in a show or sip cocktails at one of the resort’s five bars.
The Barcelo Tucancun Beach's new fitness center will appeal to even the most exercise-averse guest with its Life Fitness line of equipment. Guests can choose from three treadmills, recumbent lifecycles bikes, stair climber, elliptical and free weights as they get into shape.
A Mexican vacation wouldn't be complete without time spent soaking up the sun. With three pools — one featuring an interior sunbathing area — guests are spoiled for choice. If relaxing in the sun isn't enough, the Barcelo Tucancun Beach offers a top-rated spa, where visitors can avail themselves of all the latest treatments and procedures to ensure they return home rested and looking their very best.
Guests in search of a more active stay can take advantage of the many recreational options on offer at the Aquaworld marina, including tennis, water aerobics, volleyball, basketball, badminton, table tennis and water polo. Kayaks and pedal boats are available at the marina, as well. For golfers, a nearby 18-hole, par 72 course designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. is a stone's throw away.
The freshly appointed Club Premium rooms offer guests the perfect combination of comfort and the utmost in chic, tropical style: 172 Double Oceanfront rooms offer spectacular views of the Caribbean, while 16 oceanview suites offer unparalleled views.
Families will want to take advantage of the newly designed Ocean Front Family Suites. Featuring sea views, each suite offers two rooms, a kitchen, dining area and living room with sofa, as well as two fully equipped bathrooms. Parents can rest easy, knowing their little ones are happily ensconced in the newly refurbished Barcy Club, where children from 4 to 11 years old can enjoy age-appropriate, supervised activities while their parents get some much-needed private time.
Those just starting their lives together will find the Barcelo Tucancun Beach is the ideal place to start their life together. And, with a wide range of options, couples can put together a wedding that reflects their lives as a couple and that will suit any budget.
