    Hello All,

    Would love some of your opinions. Looking for a plan of attack on the first day. If my team is arriving about at 2pm... how would you suggest we spend the remainder of the afternoon/evening?

    From what I have gathered on this site there is little to no chance of being able to obtain a chair at the Sexy Pool at that hour. So does that mean we should look to head down onto the beach and lounge there?

    Appreciate the any feedback.

    Find a place or a chair to put your belongings, get in the pool and join in the fun. That is the time of day the pool is the most fun.

    Drinking too much the first day and falling asleep early.

    I suggest you find your room and a solid route from the pool to your room and memorize it. That way after you get hammered at the sexy pool doing shots off you girl and others you can walk by memory back to your room to sleep it off for a bit before the next party starts.

    You will need at least an hour to check in by the time you get your luggage to the room to be able to change from TTR. Or you can bring a small bag with your swim ware in to change and just leave a tip for the bell boy in your room.

    Then just as they suggest, find a small corner for you stuff and jump in the pool and grab some drinks at the bar and join the fun!

    We always do a dry run from the pool to the room, before the party starts! I have been known to put our room number on our hands just in case "found please return to room #....".

    I always go so hard the first day. LOL the next morning kinda sucks. We always pack our suits in a back pack and change as soon as we get there and get the party started .

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Since all the chairs will ultimately already be taken I suggest that you put your stuff on a chair right then to reserve for the following day.

    Most resorts have your room number on the backside of your bracelet, not sure if Temptations does this or not? I know RIU and Iberostars do.

    I don’t think there is a room number on them but heck I am typically a bit tipsy often
    But that isn’t a bad idea! I know the ink washes off after a while in the pool and jacuzzi !

    We have arrived in the afternoon several times. The first thing we do is stop at the buffet and get a small bite to eat. Then to the sexy pool for a couple of hours. Then take a short nap before dinner. After dinner its party time. After traveling a half hour nap makes the night go way better.

    Check in takes some time, say 1 hour by the time you get your stuff. Keep a small backpack type with swim wear so you can get right to the action. You'll have a great time.

    Our policy for the first day is not to waste a second. Get through your check-in and have whatever you "need" for the pool ready to go in a bag. Everything else, whether you get a room right away or if it sits with the bell boys will be just fine unpacked. Obvious wardrobe change for dinner/evening... but again, don't waste a second "unpacking".
