Expectations Are the Beach will be Restored by the Government
Cancun, Mexico/Miami, FL – February 8, 2006 - Barceló Hotels & Resorts announced today its plans to officially reopen the Barceló Tucancun Beach hotel in Cancun on April 22. The four-star, upscale, all-inclusive resort has been temporarily closed since Hurricane Wilma. During the rebuilding phase the hotel is undergoing a multi-million dollar renovation and remodeling that includes a new reception area and lobby bar, as well as new restaurants, a new swimming pool and deck area, and a new lounge area with hammocks for guests to enjoy the Caribbean view. In addition, the property’s 315 guest rooms and villas have been refurbished to add to guest comfort. Most importantly, the government sponsored beach rejuvenation program is underway, and expectations are that the beach will be restored to its pre Wilma state, or possibly even nicer, by the time the Barceló Tucancun is ready to reopen.
“When the Tucancun reopens in April, it will be a brilliant new hotel delivering state of the art guest services and amenities,” said Fiona Taylor, Director of Marketing for Barceló Hotels & Resorts. “With the help of our dedicated employees, we have used these past few months to update and improve the hotel’s facilities and we will reopen as a first class property. We look forward to welcoming visitors who come to Cancun to play in its famous crystal blue waters and enjoy the exciting nightlife and shopping,” added Taylor.
