    This may have been discussed already - so if I missed it, sorry. We just got back from a winter vacation at TTR and DRM. At Desire, they are building a new resort next door - owned by Original. We asked and they said it will be a Temptation concept, topless, party and couples only. It looks really nice. They said it should open by summer (it looks close to completion and they were working on it) and it does not have a name yet. Just curious if anyone else has any information on this new resort?

    It is a secrets resort called Breathless. I don't think it is supposed to be anything like Temptation Resort.

    Thanks - I thought they implied they owned it, my mistake. I looked at the Secrets website and that is the resort - Thanks!

    Their plans are to open April 1. At least that is the first night you can reserve a room. They market themselves as an all adult party resort, but I think it's a much tamer party than we are used to at TTR. It seems like the kind of place that the people who write bad reviews of TTR would go and then come back home and tell their friends how wild they were.

    We have been to Secrets before. They are fun and there is fun to be found but it's definitely not TTR fun and you would be out of place for sure in Wicked Weasle :)

    We'll pass.

    We are headed to the new Breathless in Cabo in March after our January Trip to TTR we will put in a review after . We love the weather on the Pacific side and feel TTR should definitely go back there.

    Just a FYI - Breathless is a new resort brand from AMResorts which is heavily owned by Apple Vacations.

    AMResorts other resort brands, Secrets, Dreams, Now and Zoetry do not allow topless. These are "American themed" resorts and cater to the more prudish vacationer and families

    Although in the Breathless PR material they have stated that it will be "adults only with a sexy vibe" - IMHO, "maybe" a topless optional pool(although the one in Punta Cana dosen't allow topless) - if you look at AMResorts other existing resort brands, "topless" is somewhat of a new concept for them...

    That's going to be an interesting resort. When we were at DRM last May it looked like from several rooms you could view the pool at Desire.

    This is a very interesting rate at breathless. TTR should consider something like this...

    3'S A PARTY PROMOTIONAv. daily price 428 USD/night
    The "3’s A Party" promotion is valid on all new reservations made at Breathless Riviera Cancun, and includes the third girl free in the room when booking a room of double occupancy. Double occupancy is defined as 1 male and 1 female or 2 females. Maximum 1 male allowed per room. Any deviation from these occupancy rules will result in additional fees at check in.

    Hmmm. This is either very stupid or very smart. Smart because unicorns are on the endangered species list and maybe they really don't want to sell a lot of these but it still sounds sexy. Stupid if they really did want to sell a lot of rooms because MFM is going to happen about 50 times more than FMF! (At least that's what I've heard.......)

    This is not a new concept. I believe I have seen it at Hedo in the past,, and have mentioned it in a few of the single debates as a way to equalize the single male/female ratio. The one I saw also included 3 girls :)

    I am sure they would just monopolize the bathroom and wear you out anyway :)

    We had a lady our first trip not want to leave and said she just wanted to spend the rest of her vacation in our room. She had come with her boy friend. After about two hours I asked for her room number and went and got her boyfriend to get her the hell out of there. True story that didn't seem appropriate for the trip repor but five years later who gives a damn :)

    Yea if it actually was the case I could see myself just walking around disheveled and tired all week. But oh the memories ;)

    Yea 2 hours, that seems like the right amount of time.
