Barcelo targets Cancun re-opening

Barcelo Hotels & Resorts plans to officially reopen the Barcelo 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 Barcelo 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 Barcelo 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.
