    We used bookit.com the last time we came to TTR but I've heard there are much better options out there. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! We are wanting to book for the July 7 - 15ish timeframe. Can't wait to party with everyone!

    We use Travelocity for all our trips. Just easier for us. We’re booked for this July as well. Good luck to ya.

    I always check around, and Orbitz always wins for us.

    We've had good luck with Alpharooms, and Cheap Caribbean. When looking for flights we shop around. Skiplagged.com is very easy to search and always has good results. We also use one other trick.... Look at booking ONE-WAY tickets. It's surprising how many times booking two One-Way tickets is cheaper than a round trip, and you can more easily pick your preferred flight times rather than getting stuck with horrible flights on one leg of your trip. Just bring a copy of your return ticket with you before you depart. We've been asked to show that we intended to return home, no doubt because our antics would eventually wear out our welcome!

    we found a site called prestigia.com that is offering $145 per night but the room description seems strange. It says Trendy Twin with extra bed or Trendy Double with extra bed. I thought TTR only offered king beds or two doubles. Their description just seems sketchy.

    I was just looking at hotelscombined.com! It redirected me to Skoosh and prestigia. They seem like great deals but I'm not sure what trendy twin and trendy double means??

    The link in my signature takes you to the TTR page at hotelscombined, they scan prices from multiple providers to find the best deal.

    Thanks Steve! Do you happen to know what Skoosh means by the trendy twin and trendy double rooms?

    I was looking at Skoosh and Prestgia also yesterday. Both had great prices, but when I attempted to book with prestigia, the price almost doubled by the time you get to checkout, and a Google search of Skoosh turned up too many negative reviews for me to feel comfortable enough to use them. Hate to get to the resort and have issues, especially during peak season with a full hotel

    We have used the following 3 discounters successfully. Each time we look to see which is cheaper...
    Alpharooms
    Skoosh
    Cheaptickets.com

    Over the last few years when applying coupon codes they send you cheaptickets.com rarely loses. Plus they are fully refundable. I book in advance and the worry about airfare later once I am sure we can go. Did that for April. Worked out great. Could of stayed in garden view for around $200 but went with master for around $500. I know I know. Why does the room type matter. I refer to exhibit A...

    Like Donald said, get in contact with someone who has a timeshare and get a referral. We've done this for the last 4 visits and wouldn't do it any other way.
    As for flights, this year we found that booking one-way flights was actually cheaper then booking a return flight. Even added an extra flight to Chicago on the way down to meet up with some friends that are coming to Mexico.

    I called Temptations 1-800 # and talked to a rep regarding this issue. They told me that some websites do have those descriptions but in reality TTR only has rooms with one King bed or 2 Double beds.

    We always have good luck with vacations to go. Unfortunately we don't know anyone that has a timeshare with TTR either.

    Usually when you ask for info on Referrals a bunch of Premier Members will PM you with info ( I am not a member),, you can also search FB for their site
