    This was an ok experience- the food was the biggest disappointed. the food is not god quality or tasteful. Moreover, there is only 2 full service restaurants and for dinner only. The Italian restaurant was a HUGE disappointment too as it was buffet style and the food was not at par. The check in and check out process took forever too.

    Comfort and Value

    The Occidental Tucancun (all-inclusive resort or room daily) is a medium size property in the middle of Hotel Zone, 25 minutes by bus outside Cancun city or from the airport. We recommend this resort which offers many of the usual amenities for a moderate cost. We're satisfied with clean sheets, good food, convenience and value. Seafood restaurant Claraboya is more elegant and open for breakfast and lunch and we usually enjoyed those meals there. Soup lovers like me will appreciate cream soups of mushroom, spinach, carrots, tomato, potato, which were nicely flavoured. Amazingly, the common mashed potatoes are to-die-for. Pretty decent fish is on the menu daily everywhere. Grouper is a high-protein fish that is low in cholesterol and contains significant levels of protein, vitamins, and minerals. Three a-la-carte dinner restaurants offer some good choices provided your selections are thoughtful and undemanding. For examples, in the seafood restaurant we liked the braised salmon steak; in the Italian we liked the flambéd shrimp cream pasta; and in the Mexican restaurant we relished salsa freshly made to taste at your table with mortar & pestle ¬¬- all excellent. Sadly, a warning, that in spite of all the aforementioned praise, all cooked dishes were oversalted. The bar scene in the hotel is happy, active, and intellectual (...just kidding!), but there's no live music to compete with the revelers' loudness. The Tucan Theatre was serendipitously excellent, offering seven different, entertaining shows: magic, mariachi, circus, Mexican folklore, Michael Jackson, Three Tenors and enthusiastic karaoke. After the show, there's a terrific singing artist playing latin music for listening or dancing. It’s fun to watch very authentic latin dancing, and to join in if one likes to dance. We do! My vacation advice: don't retire to your room if you're not yet gently full, sloshed and tired. Three fresh pools are available and one is for adults only. At this resort, if you're challenged by stairs, know that there are some to get around and down to the beach. The landscaping is beautiful and impeccably groomed. Finally, regarding staff inviting you to a “presentation”. Yes, annoying, distracting and time consuming when your time in the sun is limited. Ok, don’t get your bikini in a knot, just say no! But still I’m empathetic, because these workers are just trying to make a living by upselling you to their “club”. I’ve met people who have participated and survived and even purchased. Take it easy on your vacation.

    Exceptional Service at Occidental Tucancun!

    Absolutely loved this resort. SUPER courteous staff. Stayed in a beachfront suite which was immaculate and had a great location. Rooms very clean, 4 restaurants (2 buffet) much better than I expected.
