    That's about the only thing I really hate about Temptation, those damn slippery floors and stairs everywhere you go, my wife's elbow still isn't 100% after her slip and fall last September.

    Had to laugh when I saw this here too! Dude, I'm American and from Massachusetts. Don't know why you assumed that I was Mexican! And I pointed out that Amerimed isn't so out of line for a name of a hospital in Mexico, since Mexico is one of the three countries that make up North America.

    You clearly had a terrible experience and I'm very sorry for that, especially because I know just how treacherous and dangerous wet walking surfaces can be.

    I just don't get this: My wife is very proud of being a 28 year teacher, so she kind of got pissed when the Ameimed worker, threw her UHC card back and said "we don't take this here". Well thats a lie !! SHE GOT REALLY PISSED!!!

    Um, not a lie. The truth.

    I've been to TTR, previously BBG, 8 times. I've been there blind drunk, and never broken myself. Those of you who know who I am get the joke. If you chose to walk through slippery spots, why is hat the resorts's problem?

    Let's just say, Slip & Fall cases do not win.

    Another bad place at the Sexy pool is where the steps lead out of the pool right beside the bar,, seem to be an endless stream of water/lotion, and oil.

    We're really sorry to read about your horrible fall & short vacation. Hopefully you guys will give TTR another shot. We know you'll have a great Time. We met many fun people and had a fantastic time, we can't wait to go back.
    As you can see from the picture, I was also a victim of a slippery tile floor after a morning rain(and a few cocktails).
    A day earlier, our new friend Darren from Labrador, Canada had called the doctor for stitches because of a fall in his room, and it cost BIG money. Although I probably needed a couple stitches, I opted out of seeing the doctor or going to the local hospital. Lucky for me a lovey Canadian nurse at the sexy pool patched me up with steri-strips. On a positive note, the resulting black eye was a huge conversation piece. We met so many more people discussing my "post fight look" then we ever would have met. After feeling horrible for a few days after fall, and experiencing some equiliberium issues, we came to find out that my fall also left me with a concussion.
    I'm hoping after reading this, we hope that other TTR guests will take caution if they come in contact with wet floor tile. It really can be as slippery as ice![​IMG]

    It is universally accepted that if something is referred to as "American", then it is from the United States. I have never heard a Canadian or a Mexican refer to themselves as an American(unless of course they are living here).

    DUDE: your comments on TA were one of the main reasons I cancelled the post. : On the Jamaica forums people who question every detail are assumed to be Jamaican nationals or business owners trying to promote their establisments.

    1. My wife fell and broke her wrist
    2. TTR got a male nurse to look at it
    3. Its Broken , we will cal1 the doctor
    4. we knew Delta had an 8 am flight, The CHristmas Holidays were here
    5. My wife said "I want to go home, right now. If we don't, its going to be a big mess"
    6. Doctor called "meet us at Amerimed Hospital for a X-ray"
    7. Amerimed, ah okay, An X-ray will be fine. Hey, it might not be broken (Wishfull thinking)
    8, Wife is a School teacher in Atlanta. They have etremely good insurance. its a very costly program for Ga edcators, but with all the options its the best
    people want a job here, just to get the insurance.
    My wife's NEA CC has a $$$$$ limit, we could have paid for just about anything
    9. never intended for any procedure to be done, just an Xray
    10. The attendant acted very rude and just threw the card back.
    11. "We don't take this here" in a rather loud voice
    12. the MD came in and told us he didn't need an X-ray. Maybe he was like Clarke Kent and had Xray vision
    13. We didn't walk out, we ran.

    The attendant was just plain rude !!!! We would HAVE never went except we assumed it was American owned. AND JUST FOR AN XRAY No anti-Mexican bias:

    BIGGEST PROBLEM WE DIDN"T SPEAK SPANISH

    The TA post quckly became a bash America type thing. As I stated, I wish I had never bothered to post anything. Unless its a "glowing" report, its best just to kept it to yourself. Never considered suing anyone LOL. Handrails are a complete waste of time and $$$.

    I re-read my post, and it sounded major-league harsh, which isn't what I really intended. Sorry.

    Thing is, I was perhaps 10 feet away from a guy at the place next to the sexy pool where people come "up" to get to the bar, not the swim-up bar, and the guy slipped, SOBER (most likely his problem, come to think of it), and fell sideways and managed to crack his ddome on a step. Ouch!

    Gravity works. People fall. It happens. I simply don't understand why you thought the resort should think it was a special incident? People fall all the time. I bet they keep statistics on how many falls they have, where, at TTR. I would.

    Not to bet on, no. Quit thinking that. To fix it. C'mon, I'm not that mean.

    John : LOL Well, When you break your hand in a fall, UGHHH, I kinda think thats a pretty major incident!!! No Handrails. I admit we had just got there and didn't know our way around. But yes its pretty major. Still AMAZED that TTR didn't at least send someone
    to come check on us. Wait a minute, they did call, It was for the time share presentation.

    I think that took that "And nobody gives a shit line" to the extreme. pretty clear they just didn't give a shit if we were alright or not.

    breezesfan, I do hope you return to TTR in April 2013. I'm sure I speak for all the April Addicts when I say that we will help you create amazing memories to replace the bad memories you currently have of TTR.

    Well, enough bitching about spilled milk: Bottom line is we were only at TTR for a few hours, but we had a great time. We are Hedo/Breezes regulars so here are some major differences:

    1. Cancun Airport is MUCH MUCH BETTER than Montego Bay Jamaica Airport. The immigration area at MBJ isn't even air conditioned

    2. TTR is much closer to the airport. In the old days Hedo provided a shuttle which was where the party started. But now it can be an 1 1/2 ordeal on a shared van. Unless you take Tim Air, which is very $$$

    3. TTR is a much more compact resort. Hedo and BGN are Sprawing with lots of Garden Areas. In both Jamaica resorts, the main areas are not air conditioned. Very hot most of the time.

    4. Neither Jamaica resorts have anything like Patty Os. They have a main dinning/dancing
    area and a piano bar (Hedo has a Disco), but nothing like patty os

    5. AT Hedo, There is lots of Open Sex and Drug use on the nude side. AHHHHH___ Like toppless, but thats about as far as we want to go. BGN is clothes optional. Somedays you feel like a nut, somedays you don't. Pretty tame

    6. Really TTR beach is very nice!!!! nice calm water. BGNs main beach is the best IN THE CARRIBEAN. We will miss that!!!

    7. TTR pools beat anything Hedo/BGN has hands down!!!

    8. Really we think the TTR folks were much friender !!! And the ages at TTR were amazing !!! Really some of the old guys at TTR needed a Viagra pump!!! You have to be a diabetic to catch on to that one.

    9. Hedo and BGN are both being sold by their owners (Superclubs). really puts a dark cloud on everything.

    10. Can't really comment on the food. weren't ther very long,,, THE Coffee was GREAT however.

    11. the women were much prettier at TTR and the prettiest one were not stuck on themselves.

    12. Almost forgot, the $$ for TTR is much cheaper than Hedo. around $100 a nite cheaper. a little shorter flight from Atlanta, but kinda of a wash.


    Hope this helps.

    Just spoke with Expedia and TTR has agreed to a full refund for the 4 days we missed!!!
    Sure we will be back in April. Maybe in March, but those are bad weather make up days and are very IFFY. My wife is trying to encourage some of her Teacher Pals to come along. Oh well, the quiet pool didn't look so bad either.

    what you talking about ''bad weather ''?? April is the driest/sunniest month in Cancun. March is more $$ and more younger crowd . Unless you a teacher and don't have a choice

    Yes, she really doesn't have a choice !! Spring break for our school system is April. The other ones aren't really fixed, but can change at any time. She had to get approval from the school superintendent to leave 2 hours early last Wed.

    Well short story for yah. My wife and I were on the boobs cruze last year and had a few cocktails on the trip out to Isla as everyone was. When we got to the Island we wanted to go see a friend who has a condo on the other side of the Island. So we rented a golf cart, well one quick U turn and my lovely bride flew out of the cart and into the street. Good news was her head broke her fall. As a few of you might remember we made our way back to the boat looking like we just lost a bad bar fight. Steve immediately dispatched a speed boat to get us back to Cancun. Within minutes the boat reached the catamaran and speed us off back to resort where a full medical staff was there to greet us. Needless to say the resort staff was very accomidating and I never got a bill or anything. So once again Steve thanks ! See you in July ! This time no golf cart rides

    when we got to the gate in Atlanta, the gate attendant took one at my wifes arm and started screaming "call 911, call 911". Found out later that she had assumed my wife broke her wrist on the flight back.

    I asked the ER nurse how my wife had survived being under to have her arm set. "oh, shes just great!!! only thing shes complaiing about is her body doesn't have a suntan"

    I do have to say that I've seen more than 1 person fall pretty hard on some of the ramps and walkways around TTR. Mix day-long alcohol with slick surfaces and high heels and you've got a mess on your hands. Everyone, please be careful when walking around because it does get slick, and not just at the pool--around Paty O's, etc, too.

    When I was stung by jellyfish last September the hotel was very friendly and some guy with a First Aid kit came and put a bunch of creams, etc on the stings. No charge.

    Steve, thanks for the hospital recs. Hopefully won't need it, but good to know there are some recommended places to get urgent treatment.
