Barcelo Hotels & Resorts announced a partnership with The Cancun Golf Club at Pok ta Pok that allows guests of the Barcelo Tucancun Beach Hotel and the Barcelo Costa Cancun Hotel unlimited complimentary golf when they are guests at either hotel for a minimum three-night stay. Guests wanting to participate in the golf promotion will need to reserve their tee times through their hotel and will be charged a mandatory golf cart rental ranging from $45-$85, per person, for a shared golf cart.

Golfers staying at either of the two upscale hotels will get preferred tee times, a 15 percent discount at the Cancun Course restaurant, a 10 percent discount in the pro shop, as well as a 10 percent discount at the Barcelo Costa Cancun Hotel logo shop and spa services at both hotels. Allinclusive rates at both hotels start at $115 per person, per night, based on double occupancy.

The internationally renowned Par 72 Pok ta Pok course offers a tropical adventure for players of all levels as it winds around Mayan ruins. Designed by Robert Trent Jones, the 18-hole course is built into the rolling, lush terrain and has recently been enhanced to include 7,050 yards of play. The course offers two ocean view holes on the 12th and 14th greens, and provides challenging play over rock formations and several sets of trees and water bunkers.

The recently renovated Barcelo Tucancun Beach hotel is situated 25 minutes from Cancun International Airport and steps away from the area’s Cancun Beach shopping area. From this seaside location, guests can enjoy views and activities along the Caribbean and the Nichupte Lagoon.

In addition to its beachfront location, the hotel has a new pool area with an extended deck, and fresh water pools, including a jetted pool and a children’s fenced water play area. The resort also includes tennis facilities. New hotel spa services include expanded spa treatments, such as aromatherapy, hydro massage and sports massages, as well as a beauty salon and babysitting services.

For dining, the resort has recently added two new restaurants: Don Quijote, a Spanish cuisine dinner buffet restaurant; and La Claraboya, a contemporary seafood a la carte restaurant. The international buffet restaurant, El Caffe, has been remodeled and expanded, and the hotel’s popular Mexican Cuisine a la carte dinner restaurant, Mexico Lindo, has also been remodeled.

The Barcelo Costa Cancun Hotel includes 357 guestrooms and suites and is located in the heart of Cancun’s hotel district. It is a Mediterranean style hotel complex on the sheltered bayside of the Caribbean overlooking Playa Linda. The hotel’s all-inclusive facilities offer a selection of three restaurants, a snack bar and three lounges. In addition to dining, guests can enjoy unlimited house brand cocktails, water sports, an air-conditioned fitness center, recreational activities, a children’s program and live entertainment each evening. The hotel boasts a large freshwater swimming pool, as well as a kid’s club. Guests may also choose to add spa services to their stay for an additional fee at the hotel’s spa facilities.
