    I would like to know where exactly on the premises are pictures not allowed. I'm a professional photographer and I like to take pictures of my wife while we are on vacation and I'd like to get photos of her on the beach and on location at various other spots that may catch my eye. I'm no creep and couldn't care less about sneaking a picture of a person I don't know, but I also don't want anyone giving me the side-eye because I'm walking around with my big DSLR Camera with zoom lens.

    OH yea, I'm a dude posting under my wifes account. LOL

    I think ?? third party pictures , means you can take pictures of yourself , but not of others.

    When I do photo shoots I do them in the morning , a lot less hassles and learing eyes

    Restaraunt Dress Code

    Sorry if I've missed it we are going next weekend and would like to know the dress code for the restaurants. Hubby is not wanting to pack a "formal" outfit he's more of a tshirt and shorts/sandals type on vacation... will likely have a pair of closed toed shoes and khaki pants and button up shirt but he don't wanna pack a suit n tie....

    I am not positive but a pair of khakis and closed toed shoes maybe a collared shirt will be good.

    The body painting sounds great. We suggest you have it available during the day....but a body paint theme night sounds fun.....similar to what is done in Key West. A charge for body painting is reasonable to expect or at least a good tip to the body paint artist

    Hi, I have talked with our reservations department and they have confirmed that the type of rooms that are shown as Ocean Standard by the Travel Agencies, are our Flirt category. You can always request an upgrade with your agency prior arrival following their own policies or upon arrival you can request the upgrade at the front desk, upgrades are subject to availability and prices. In this case just in order to know what type of room you confirmed by your agency, please send me in a private message your confirmation number and the details of your reservation to give you the correct information.
    Thanks

    Hi, an Ocean Standard it's shown as our Flirt category, photos can not be displayed sometimes due we had been making and implementing several changes, every time we make them, we inform to all the OTA's but changes can be reflected after a while following their own procedures of updating info. You can also check this helpful link of another thread about the same topic.

    Hi, we have this strict policies about photos mostly at the pool area. You are free to take pictures but being careful of not take photos of a third party. All this to ensure an environment of respect and to ensure the privacy of our guest.

    Hi, regarding our dress code we have 3 restaurants with a Formal dress code. At the moment we are still accepting leather flip flops or casual shorts but in the transition of the concept we will turn it in to a business casual. Of course, once this changes are implemented we will let you know. Tank tops or beach flip flops are not allowed.

    Hi, we already have some body painting activities and are held from 3pm until 6pm in the pool area. You can also keep your body painting art for the theme parties we have at night.

    We will be there at the end of Feb. Excited about trying something new. Not real happy that a room safe is $7 a night? Isnt that being a little "chincy"?

    Re body painting it is done by Angie, the same lady who does it at Temptation.

    At Temptation you pay for each painting, At GOV Angie is paid a wage and body painting is free to guests. Angie is friends with my wife Jannet and told her she did about 30 the other day.

    Nice move GOV!

    Pool Closing Time

    Valentina can you confirm how late the pools are open? There seems to be some confusion about this.
    Thank you!
