    I'm looking into booking our third trip to Temptation. This will be the first one since the remodel. In the past, we've always just stayed in the cheapest garden view room, but it looks like those are sold out for our dates in July.

    Plush Jacuzzi and Bash Tower are practically the same price. For those who have been there since the remodel which would you recommend? From my understanding, the Bash Tower gets access to the rooftop pool and the Plush Jacuzzi wouldn't without paying extra? Is there anything else we should consider?

    We did really like going to the sports pool late night after the other pools were closed. Now that there's not a pool open late, I'm thinking the Jacuzzi might be a nice alternative.

    Bash Tower all the way. Plush Jacuzzi is basically just like the trendy view room but with a jacuzzi on the patio, thats it. Room is no bigger in the jacuzzi room and the bathroom is very small just like the trendy view. Last trip we got a jacuzzi room and the second day we moved into a tower room. Bigger room, bigger bathroom, double vanities, and free access to Sky Bar.

    So lush is only like $20-$40 more a night and had a jacuzzi on the balcony and is in the tower? That would make the decision much easier :)

    Try cheaptickets.com and I bet it is cheaper than where you are looking and it will be like getting the upgrade for free :)

    We have invited people back to the jacuzzi and it can fit 4 or more. Is a good way to break the ice so it has some advantages if you are looking to entertain

    Master suite or penthouse. The pics with no water or other things going on are not permitted on the site :(

    Depends on what you want out of your room. We stayed at the Golden Parnassus a couple times before TTR, and there you get a great beach, and spectacular ocean view of watching the cruise ships passing by, and with large waves crashing in all day long. A good viewing room was worth the effort there.

    In my opinion the beach and ocean aren’t that exciting at TTR, even from the tower. We don’t spend a lot of time in the room, and value the location, and guarantee of first floor that you get with the Plush Jacuzzi room. That is the main reason for choosing that room. Haven’t really used the hot tub in two trips, but nice to know it’s an option.

    I'd go for a tower room over plush Jacuzzi.

    As Kyle mentioned, a Lush Tower room might not be that more expensive than a Bash room and has a Jacuzzi too

    Newbies June 20-26. We booked through 3rd-party site and got a great deal for 6 nights. They gave us Trendy ocean view. I called resort this morning to ask about upgrading to Bash Tower. They said $200 per night to upgrade. Is it worth it? Any thoughts?

    My opinion is that for $200/night is no way!
    And yes we have stayed in both since renovation.

    No way at that price. But everything is negotiable at TTR. I would counter at $100 a night. If they take it great. If they don’t then use the money you save to visit the sky bar a couple times

    Yes they are fine.
    WRT Kyle’s suggestion, they might accept $100/night but may ask you to attend sales pitch.
    I might do $50/night but that is just my opinion.
    We have a hand full of Trendy Garden Rooms rooms we like and typically get so we are happy.
