    Definitely gotta watch where you're going. I ate shit on my second day coming out of the men's bathroom by the sexy pool. Fortunately i didn't get hurt but those bathrooms are slippery.. and have shiny tile to boot... doh!

    I think only one person saw and had a chuckle at my expense LOL

    To be honest, All of the oceanfront pixs of TTR are very misleading !!! The ones on Expedia only show the resort as viewed from the South !! The quiet pool is the one that is pictured !!! I had assumed that the quiet pool
    was the sexy pool. The resort is actually twice as large as I had assumed.
    didn't know until we got there and looked at the resort map.

    So true - the aerial photos make it look like there are two resorts - it's actually 1 big resort separated into three sections.

    As the buildings in the 4000/5000 section do not look the same - I'll just assume they built out the addition later on.

    And as far as slipping goes - We watched a dozen people in Cabos fall to there demise around the pool on the slick wet tile. One guy broke his hand, and you'd see the bruises the following day on these folks.

    In Cancun, anywhere there is a n elevation change with the red tiles was a dangerous affair. On the way to Nice Shoes was the worst.

    We did get a full refund for the 4 days we missed. We are already planning to come back April 13-April 18. My wife's cast is red (matches her school's colors). No surgery required, so far, so good.

    The big thing people should take away from this is, buy separate trip insurance. And it might be a good idea to call the provider of that insurance and ask what hospitals in Cancun accept their coverage.

    Any "American hospitals give treatment in ER to Mexicans why not the other way around" stuff isn't productive at all. Also it sounds like the hotel did its due diligence by getting the onsite medic to give the once over before referring to the doctor on call. After that they fulfilled their responsibility.

    In my 12 trips I have seen a few things:

    1: guy slipped in the sports pool and cut his foot open. The on site medic actually gave him stitches on the spot. Good job

    2: while on one of the catamaran trips (can't remember if it was Steve's Boobs cruise or not) a girl badly sprained her ankle. Upon getting to Isla Mujeres the staff drove her to the local hospital. Sure she had to pay butshe kept her receipts and I'm sure she was able to get reimbursed.

    3: a dumbass (aka me) over Halloween, had an ingrown hair get infected on the left side of his face. It swole quite a bit and I ended up getting the hotel doc to come look at it. He came to my room twice over the course of 3 days, on the second, lanced the infection and gave me a antibiotic injection. For that trip I didn't bother getting insurance (never again). I only paid $250 out of pocket for two housecalls and 3 different prescriptions.

    The doctor was very professional but be prepared to pull money out of pocket if a provider doesn't direct bill an insurance company.

    Just my two cents.

    Accidents

    I am so sorry to here about your wife
    We were at TTR in November & we saw someone slip everyday going into the sexy pool toilets. Some people really looked hurt but the staff appeared to be there quick with pen & paper in hand,could that be that they want a disclaimer signed. My personal feeling is that TTR must start thinking more about these tiles as they can be so dangerous. What about the big thick rubber matts, in bad areas. They may not look brilliant but wouldn't we all be happier if less people hurt themselves! Because remember it could be you next time!

    Believe it or not one trip I was there every night they had a crew of about 5 guys out there with small hammers chipping away at the pool deck to chip it up. The limestone that is the base of the concrete over time will erode to a smooth consistency. Periodically they have to chip away at it to get some traction back.

    Inside the pool on the steps yup, they need to add some anti-slip stuff for sure.

    My wife just got the "little" cast put on Last Friday, so she can "do" her hair now. Still have to drive her around , her Z is a manual, so we will have to rent an automatic equipped car.
    Will try to get her to pose for a pix (The Cast is red, Go DAWGS) !! Already planning a trip back to TTR !!!
