We stayed in the Iberostar tucan hotel from the 8th June - 18th June 2014 & what a fantastic time we had.every day there was several new things to discover not one day was the same.
We arrived from airport in around 40 mins & my partner & I was fortunate enough to be first to check in which took no more than a minute, we also asked for room facing jungle which was granted.then made are way to our room whilst waiting for suitcases we had a look round room it was spacious, clean & we felt at home straight away
After suitcases arrived we unpacked & got ready & went onto balcony to enjoy a cold beer from mini bar, & was soon enjoying the first of many visits from the howler monkeys who are resident in hotel jungle,these monkeys would go on to join us every morning in there various numbers, one morning we had 7 including 2 babies,no need to visit the zoo it was all there lizards,flamingos,giant tortoises,toucans to name but a few.
The beach was absolutely gorgeous but everyday we was drawn to the huge & stunning pool where we would spend hours ,I had all intentions of watching all the World Cup matches which was shown in the disco on the big screen & 4 tv screens with unlimited bar popcorn,but in the end managed 7 out of 17 matches the lure of the pool was too powerful.
The pool bar was extra special where barman Daniel worked wonders keeping every happy with various cocktails, also round by the pool I never found myself waiting for a beer the girls was always there when your glass was empty.gemma was on our side of pool & looked after us well.
We would always visit snack bar for food by beach ,for burgers,nachos & cheesey sauce,hot dogs,
The buffet restaurants I never got bored of I looked forward to them everyday such a wide choice of stuff I would of had again & again,breakfast ,lunch & dinner, also a cheeky late night snack when coming out of mascara night club(disco).
The entertainment team star friends were very hard working we enjoyed the shows especially mr Iberostar ( which England should of won) .in the daytime they would be doing various activitys ,volley ball ,bingo,beach party's ,pool aerobics etc. & they would always come round meeting & chatting to everyone .we was joined by Marcello for lunch one day which was a nice touch.
The hotel also has Japanese,steak,Mexican ,Italian & tropical restaurants .we enjoyed the Italian & Japanese but didn't get round to trying the Mexican, we was happy with buffet one of which was surrounded by a tranquil bird enclosure , we loved it.
After evening meal we would be off to catch the entertainment , then finish off in lobby bar on some occasions we would take the night further & go to the hotel night club(mascara) which was always fun.
We had a sort of routine but like I said earlier everyday was different always discovering different things & incase anyone was wondering we did leave the hotel some days to do chichen itza,snorkelling with whale sharks & 10th avenue bars & shops but that's another story.
Also can't forget a mention to our maid wendy who done the most fantastic towel arrangements never seen a towel dinosaur before & kept our room spotless & well stocked.
Overall we had the most amazing time & although there are many places in the world to visit we will try to make sure we come back again sooner rather than later.
Thank you so much everyone at ibeorostar tucan
