    Hey Y'all, 1st time @ GP in 3weeks, GrandOasisViva visitor and TTR veteran. So, what we're looking forward to is,..........(drumroll).....
    The People!
    No matter whose review we've read (Good, Bad or Ugly), the common thread for all seems to be a great staff (with rare exceptions). So, for all us newbies going to GP the 1st time, tell us your FAVORITE Staff person and WHY?!? Stories are even better!!! Pictutes are BEST! Should give us all someone to look forward to and watch for (or watch out for) when we arrive.
    Thanx in advance to all the GP Vets who've made the GP a vacay worth looking forward to...:aktion033:

    Daytime pool servers Gabby and I think Maria? and then Charlie in the 60's bar Fonzi at the Tiki. We had been to TTR 3 times before we went to GP and it was Fonzi that showed us how a real body shot was done. Even I was blushing a little when it was done.

    OK, "M", if you were blushing, does that mean Fonzi did the body shot off of U?!? Can't wait to meet that legendary Fonzi!!!

    When we were there Jose and Carlos were the main guys at the Tiki, and they kept a great party going. The staff now rotates, so it will be lucky if you get them.

    Everybody loves Fonzie. The two times we were there he was working days, and the bar down the beach, and we never went there, so I've never been around him. He is supposed to be a lot of fun as well.

    I cant really pick 1 fave' because they all exceeded my expectations in the job they were doing. If I have to say the one that left us feeling like we left behind a friend that was undoubtedly josé.

    Fonzie is the veteran who groomed a lot of the others and will no doubt be in everyone's heart as he is a consumate professional and has bigger things ahead once he finishes school.

    I will say that Gabby is very good at what she does. We were never empty sitting around the pool. She is very friendly, and never forgets where you are sitting.

    hey all,,,just back from GP,well i will keep it simple, great food,great service all around only thing that we didnt like was the cheap booze and bad beer ,hotel didnt have any beer til after 1 pm one day,we like baileys in our coffee they rarely had it ,no kahlua,( its made in mexico ),,,,i drank beer all day one day and not even a buzz,we have a pool so we like to hang at the beach, well if you dont get a chair early you wont get one they need more beach chairs,a sign on the chairs say if you leave you things on the chair for more then a hour hotel services remove them and take it to front desk we saw them monitor that but didnt see them take peoples thing away.Hotel entertainment crew try sometimes to get things going but never do,we meet some awsum ppl partyed it up still and had fun .will we go back? dont know.....April 22 TTR cant wait......oh ya all bartenders move around everyday....they alll still do a amazing job... as with servers,waiters ect....

    Body shots happening and you're saying they need to calm it down?

    Old enough to know better, too young to care

    A little late but...
    Oscar in the buffet is amazing. He does his best to be sure you have anything you need. Marta at the pool is awesome. First day my wife took her top off she was a bit self concious. Marta came up with drinks, gave my wife a huge smile and said you be you. It's your home.

    Fonzie... Oh fonzie. He laid my wife on the tiki bar, asked if she was shy. Wife replied no. He removed her bikini top, told me to start drinking and poured 1/4 bottle of tequila all over her. That was our first night. Everytime he saw us after that he yelled shots shots shots!

    The staff is truly great there. They welcome you home as you walk up. By the 2nd day you feel like your home. We will go back sometime. Maybe for a few days after TTR to relax and detox.
