    Leaving this here for those thinking about booking Temptation for the first time, not for those that have been 12 years in a row and will defend it to the death. First, this place has a ton of potential to be an absolute blast, it's easy to see that. However, the week that we went there were more packs of single men than we were expecting. Not a big deal for us because I'm not a hot head if some dude is gawking at my wife, or even trying to pick her up (she can handle her own), but it did take away from the vibe of cutting loose and not having to worry about if some dude is actually checking his email on his phone or trying to snap a pic of my wife in the world's smallest bikini. The vibe at the sexy pool was very tame most of the week. Even the DJ said that it was scary how low key it was. This is a problem if you show up half naked and fully drunk because most of the time the people were looking at us like we were crazy. Seriously. I thought the food was pretty good, especially the restaurants and my wife had no problems feeling weird for taking her top off at most of the areas of the resort except for the quiet pool where there were several glares from a bunch of one piece wearing girls that forced their husbands to hang out there so that they couldn't see that sort of thing (which I over heard). Luckily, we had a party for two mostly all day and all night, and I can't really complain about that. As far as all the ultra slutty costumes my wife had bought...well, we felt pretty foolish about that because I didn't see a single person in theme night costumes for the five days I was there. Believe me, if I had, I could have coaxed my wife into it very easily. But there truly wasn't anyone participating. I was so confused about it, I asked around, and not anyone I spoke to knew what I was talking about, other than the resort themed nights. I can only assume it was an off week and have read here that it happens. I would probably book again, but only after researching the most popular times that "cancuncare" folks go if you want it to be epic. Cheers.

    P.S. The Temptation Sensual Massage is a must by the way. Made all of the above not seem so bad. :aetsch004:

    I wish we could! I think it would be more fun if we got on board with some fun couples BEFORE we booked.

    looks like you had a great time overall. As a single guy I'd wonder if some of that was in your head. After all in a good relationship you know that while guys may gawk, she's coming home with you.

    but that's just me, I always come as a single guy and wouldn't ever dream of trying to scoop away a married lady.

    Don't get me wrong, I didn't expect to not see single guys at the resort, but there were enough in groups that it was noticeable. Not a big deal if you are eating a taco at the buffet. It is a bit uncomfortable when your wife is trying to be a little sexier than normal at an adults only resort. That's all.

    Thanks for the review, not exactly glowing but an honest review nonetheless - so no attacks please!

    I'm not sure when your dates were, but certain times can be slower/less fun than others. July August tends to be a little slower than the rest of the year. My advice, if you decide you do want to return, is to keep an eye open here on the forum and coincide with the larger groups of fun people we have - June Junkies, Octoberbreast, Week 8, Mayhem, April Addicts etc.

    If you do that you'll likely experience something completely different to your recent stay and have a ton of fun.

    Thanks Steve. You have a great site and the information on here really helped us be prepared and made the experience much more enjoyable. I think the people really make a difference in turning up the fun and now that I know that there are groups of cancuncare people that book at once, I would try to get in with some of those crazy characters. We booked this trip before I found this site. Aug 14-21.

    You know something, this is a heart felt honest review we could have wrote ourselfs.

    I appreciate what you say.

    In the times we have been here we had ups and downs times. One time I had to hurt this guys foot. He had white shoes. He put his foot in our door to keep it from closing. Sometimes you have to do what you have to do.

    I never met swingers or singles we couldn't back off if needed. They 99% are cool. But I get your feelings on your post. Its honest. You must be cool people.

    Keep coming back--sometimes and having fun! Some times are better than others but anytimes at Temptation is better than a lame time some where else! We been to tons of places and base this on experience

    My review is not a bash on single men being at the resort. It's groups of them, like as in 6-10 in full bachelor party mode and definitely not in a fun cancuncare type way. If you had been there, we would have partied no doubt.

    Not every week at Temptation is the bomb as you found out. In the last 365 days we have made 5 visits there. Not every week has been spectacular. In fact our last trip ( first week of June was very laid back...but we knew and wanted that)

    Yes you are right you should book again, after spending some time on this site and getting a feel for the different sub-groups. Some are mega groups accepting of everyone and some are small and cliquish.Some are bold and bombastic and some are very low key.
    After some research you can find the group and timeframe that fits you and that is when you should book for a real TTR experience.

    But having said that, groups change and each year can be very different, depending on the personalities present and group vibe. Perhaps too much emphasis is being placed on groups' reputations.

    After 18 trips we have seen several groups, numerous times, and the enrrgy level is surprising sometimes.

    Therefore this site helps to learn about the ppl/CCC members. Overtime you will gravitate to the personalities you want to hang with, book when they do, and then you can guarntee yourself a great vacay

    That is the way to go in my books. I think you must have been there on a very off week...rare but it happens. Give TTR another chance you won't regret it and have a blast! We have met some life long friends at TTR :)

    Don't forget to do a Boobs Cruise...fun beyond words.

    I am with you here. Not a great report for single guys (even if they aren't in "packs"). This is one of the reasons I came back on CCC to email, get to know some of the personalities of who all are going to be there. Its nice to have an idea of the people there so you can make friends and drinking companions. LOL, now I guess I will sit at the pool, hands on the bar, eyes forward so I dont appear to be gawking.....lol. Seriously, the people I have talked to on here seem cool, and it seems to be a fun party crowd....

    Large groups of young single men (20-25) do indeed change the TTR vibe. Most seemed to be British Athletic groups that were some how misled into thinking TTR was a sexual free for all. Really noticeable at PAttyOS. My wife didn't think much about the "youngsters" until she ask one (who appeared very sick), if there was any thing she could do to help. He must have given a very "honest" reply, since she came back and stated "thats one mistake I won't make again". Some gals really like the attention from groups of single men, some feel very "uneasy".

    The O/P's marginal TTR experience is the "Why" behind the need for CancunCare.com's forum. A bit of coordination, a bit of slightly-open minded calendaring of trip to go with others of like mindedness, and Wallah! Great time to be had!

    However, duds invade TTR just like anywhere else. Think what "could" have happened to the dud-party if a group.... no lets call them a "pack" of the April Addicts transplanted themselves out of April (with full party voice and naughty-clothing intact) into the week that the O/P was there? All things solved, little outfits by his Mrs. put on AND probably taken off, etc. Handled!

    Sorry your time was marginal, but you're right, that Couple's Sensual Massage is the shiznit.

    Lots of folks don't have the option of choosing when to go to TTR or any other vacation spot where you want to stay more than a couple of days. My wife's school calender allows for trips first week of Oct, First week of April, week before Christmas. The Summers are a different story. but then Cancun is just plain HOT !!!

    We will be there Oct 8-12. What is the "norm" for that time of year? The wife and I are first timers, but we have talked and we are both excited and ready to expand our experiences and possibly do some things we haven't in the past. I think single guys would be off the table for us. We would be more comfortable with another couple.

    Week 8 has never once been boring. Theme nights always have people dressed up. If you can get away in late February, I am sure you will have a better review.

    We just booked a last minute trip yesterday. We are headed down Monday. I am a little worried. On the positive side if it is slower, we will probably be able to eat at all the specialty restaurants and I may even get to read a book. Week 8 is usually overbooked and we know so many people, we are usually visiting instead of reading/relaxing. :)
