Paradise

Would recommend Thu, Jan 16, 2014
Our stay at Iberostar Tucan/Quetzal was amazing. The beach is perfect, the pool is fantastic, and there is so much beautiful wildlife wandering freely about the grounds. The staff was also very friendly. We did a free scuba lesson in the pool, got our pictures taken with toucans and parrots by their photographers, and paid only $45 per person to go snorkeling with sea turtles and stingrays, which was awesome. My only real qualm, which is pretty minor, is the food quality. The buffets were pretty similar each day, and while they had a great selection, the quality was just ok. Reservations are required for the other restaurants and we often had to eat as late as 9:00 pm to get reservations. The Japanese restaurant and steak house were really great, though. Overall, it's a really stunning resort and we had a wonderful stay. Would definitely go again.

Money saver

The shops around 5th Avenue in Playa Del Carmen are much cheaper than the ones at the resort, and worth a visit unless you want to spend $20 on sunblock or $40 on flip flops.

Great hotel for an unspoiled tourist

Would recommend Fri, Jan 3, 2014
The hotel is truly beautiful and has a true Yucatan spirit in my view. The landscaping is amazing - there is a beautiful jungle in the centre of the resort with lots of wildlife. The Playacar beach and ocean are amazing!! do not forget your snorkels - the artificial reefs are close by. The food was great and buffet menu did vary throughout the stay, unlike others experienced before. The room looked dated and in need for a renovation, but it did not bothered us at all. I will likely come to "Tucan and Quetzal" again next year!

Money saver

Don't buy anything in hotel's shops. A 35 minutes walk to Playa's 5th avenue and you can find way better deals.

Good, lots of room for improvement.

Would recommend Wed, Dec 18, 2013
The hotel and resort in all is pretty good. My wife and I go to a different resort with a group of friends every year. This resort was good, the beach was awesome, very clean and there was no rocks anywhere. The rooms were ok. The restaurants were pretty good but the buffets left a lot to be desired. The buffet menu was blah and it was the same thing everyday, got pretty boring. The food tasted good but I got tired of the save thing everyday. The drinks were good. Need more bars and snack bars through the day. Overall it was good for the price. Whatever you do don't fly US air, worst airline ever.

Dining

Book all restaurants you can. You can even go more than if you check for room on the day of.

Great value - fun surprizes

Would recommend Fri, Sep 27, 2013
We traveled during the "off-season" in September so crowds were low. We never waited for anything, and often felt like we had the beach to ourselves. The resort is clean, well maintained and the staff is especially helpful. There are plenty of coordinated activities and options to enroll in (extra charge) excursions. The landscaping is beautiful and the natural areas are a nice addition. We saw iguana, tzereque, peacocks, monkeys, coati mundi, and more on our walks to the beach. A real treat for animal lovers. The food is varied and plentiful. Like most all-inclusive resorts, price rules the quality of the food and drink. Don't expect gourmet fare and you won't be disappointed. Drinks are on the weak side, but we didn't come to get wasted, so your mileage may vary. Stick with the beer - it's always cold and good. The rooms are colorful and kept spotless every day. The bedding is harder than most people will like, but if you wear yourself out like we did, it's not a problem sleeping. The A/C works great, all rooms have a terrace and a large shower, a mini-bar-fridge, and fresh bottled water is provided each day. The shows are worth skipping. They hold true to the somewhat cheesy, loud, Mexican variety show motif. Each night has a different theme, so if you like them, you won't be bored. The pools are vast and gorgeous. Towels are abundant, large and very nice. The beach and sea-side drink service is fantastic. There is a lifeguard (not all resorts have them) and plenty of beach activities. The resort is close to town for shopping and dining, and if you want even closer, there is a smaller shopping area with in close walking distance. There's some on-site shopping and every few nights, local vendors are permitted to set up shop in a breezeway. This is our 4th visit to Playa del Carmen, and this has proved to be the nicest place we've stayed. We would definitely return. We feel a 3 star rating is too low based on what we experienced.

Dining

Ask about Mayan cuisine.

Would recommend Wed, Sep 11, 2013
The grounds of this resort are incredible. Playacar is one of our favorite destinations and the beach is spectacular. The staff here are terrific and very helpful. The main buffet food is average, with the ala cartes being excellent. It is definitely time to offer free WIFI Iberostar!!!!

fantastic vacation

Would recommend Sat, May 4, 2013
The nightlife and entertainment didn't live up to its expectation. However, the hotel itself was superb. Beautiful scenic views with a crystal clear beach.

Nightlife hint

To experience the night life you must go to the strip where the town doesn't sleep. Easily accessible either by walking or riding a bicycle.
