    I know the topic of a second female in the room is more fun than actual resorts, I do have a question on the original topic.

    Secrets just opened a new resort on the West Coast of Costa Rica. Is the chain actually prudish or are they more like many of the Mexican resorts? Just curious in case we decide to go after tax season.

    We noticed that in October, but I remember hearing that there will be some screening. Time will tell.

    he says: I dunno, I'd be willing to give the disheveled and tired AI plan a go. Rest is over-rated.

    Exactly, rest when dead!

    Yeah I have never came home from a Temptation vacation looking rested and refreshed. After our first trip to TTR we got back on the plane with several people we flew down with. They looked at us and were like "what happened to you guys?!". We seriously looked like we had been in a war all week. It was awesome! Next thing you know they were wanting to hear stories and check out our pictures. Mostly all of them looked at each other and were like "this is where we need to go next time!".

    If you come back from TTR well rested and with no new stories, friends, and maybe even a new bruise or two you didn't get your moneys worth. Best to go with an experienced group the next time!

    Yepper!!!!!! During our first trip we were fortunate enough, via CCC, to be steered in the direction of one of the many 'mo funner experienced groups who visit TTR on at least an annual basis. Now, heading into trip #3, our best pre-trip advice is rest up for a month prior as if one had signed up to run a marathon and expect a serious amount of sofa time upon returning.

    if only that were true.....but it's actually going to be a very large vanilla resort filled with beach walkers and gawkers.....sucks big time.

    Breathless Los Cabos

    Just came back from 5 nights at this new advertised sexy vibe resort. The answer is no sexy vibe here. High end awesome resort but no sexy vibe at all. Weather was amazing as always in Cabo but boring as hell.

    With the most recent news about TTR we have booked Breathless for December. We have friends that have been to breathless in DR and they spoke highly of it.

    I have been reading many of the posts since the news of when TTR will close and we are all going to be a bit displaced for a while til the renovations are complete at TTR, perhaps even after if they change the concept entirely. There has been much talk about Breathless one of the newer brand of resorts to AMResorts in Punta Cana, Cabo San Lucus, Cancun and Jamaica which will open in December. So many people have questions about this resort. I have added a link to the fact sheet of the resort, it only gives information. I am guessing that there is no place like TTR really out there, some may come close but really it has been said over and over again that it is not the resort itself but rather the people that go there. So my suggestion is why not just book somewhere as a group and make your own party.

    The Breathless Riviera Cancun location rates start at $500+ USD per night, per couple - definitely not an affordable option for many(especially Canucks - lol)

    When we were at DRM this past April, we could see the workers taking their lunch on one of the floors. It'll probably be a favorite spot of Breathless insiders. I think the DRM ownership (Original Resorts) is hoping that folks will go there, see the actually fun times happening at DRM and book there next.

    $500/night for the Breathless... that's comparable with DRM, especially if you hit a promotion.

    We just booked at Breathless in Punta Cana and on there site it states all their pools are topless optional. We even called the resort to check. We have to go somewhere until Temps opens back up, lol. Just an FYI. :)

    We went to breathless punta Cana last year. Zero topless. No music at pools except during the one hour "show" at 3pm by the E.C.
    Evening shows were spectacular. Beach area was nice but water not pretty. Atlantic side.
    Drinks extremely watered down. English barrier was huge with staff.
    Most expensive disappointing trip ever. :-(

    Edited to add....it was late August and we did have hurricane weather to contend with, I am sure that the week and group you go with can make all the difference!

    Just booked Breathless in Cabo Sept 25-Sept 30. Any info on this resort? I was told from a few friends that stayed at Breathless recently had a great time at the resort. All though they have never been to TTR so I don't know if I know what fun is all about, LOL!

    We were at Hard Rock Punta Cana last Thanksgiving. They had one adults-only pool , saw a couple topless but not much other activity. Staff was pretty decent but I tip well so I assume that has something to do with it. Food was good, but everywhere you went there were a ton of kids and including and all the entertainment. All of the night life ended at midnight so they can shove you into the casino to spend money. Nice resort but not worth the money. I think in all cases it's hard to find something that compares with what we are used to
