    Wife and I went a week. Thought I would give an overview of things from our point of view.

    Room: We liked our room- a lot. But now we do understand why there is such a fuss from people about them because different rooms will have different feel. We could not imagine having a room near Patty-O's! Wife needs her sleep and happy wife = happy life. Advice: Make sure you ask for a room to suit your style. Swingers/exhibitionists: Get a jacuzzi room lower floor, or 1229 has a massive double balcony!!!. Like loud all the time- Patty O's or by the sexy pool is great. Want a quieter retreat, 2nd/3rd floor by the quiet pool. That is what we had and we liked it. We did meet some people who had a similar room whose AC supposedly did not work, but we were cold in ours.

    Is the hotel Dated: Yeah. Did it bother us? Maybe a bit here and there, but not that much. Look, if you want a 5 star resort with marble counter tops this is not it. The resort is showing some wear and tear, and things like some tiles in the bathroom were broken. But overall it was clean. The main areas (pool, restaurants) seem to be in good shape, the rooms, hallways, etc. could use some touch up. But that is being picky really. They kept the public areas very clean, which is very nice.

    Beach: We had heard the beach was downright terrible. Truth is, again, its not a 5 star beach with pristine blue waters. But my wife who loves the beach was more than happy hanging out by the beach, riding the sail boats, wading in the ocean, finding shade (which is not avail really at the pool) and being a minute walk from the sexy pool activities. If you are going to Cancun for the beach, this is probably not the resort for you. If you are there and want the beach as part of your experience, you will be just fine.

    Food: It's really hard to give an opinion (or read someone elses) on food and get any good info. We all have different tastes, etc. It was the same quality you would find on say a cruise. Good, not great most of the time. The highlight for us was the buffet would occassionally have raw fish they would cook for you- the tuna seared was downright tasty. Much of the food is on the blander side, but that comes from people who love our spices. So to some that may be a good thing.

    Service: Absolutely incredible. From the housekeeper, bar staff, activity staff, security, etc....awesome!

    General Vibe: Unless you book the hotel by mistake (which we did encounter when we were checking in- a church group!!!), you will find your niche. There is absolutely a swinger presence so if that is your thing you will be at home. My wife and I are not- we are the type who like to be sexual around, but not with people. But we found our niche too, and never once felt pressured by anyone to do anything. The motto "nobody knows you and nobody gives a shit" really does ring true. As long as you are comfortable in your skin and at whatever pace you want- you will have an absolute blast.


    Tips for Newbies:
    1) Bring tip money. We had heard you get better drinks if you tip, not sure we noticed that, but we tipped anyway. We did tip the housekeeper $5 a day and asked for extra bottled water and she stocked our fridge! Nice to hydrate after a day at the pool/beach.

    2) Don't be afraid. Before we went we read a lot of the posts on things from heavy girls, to swingers, to what to wear, what if I am too fat, etc. Bottom line is this: If you think you are too old, you won't be the oldest. If you think you are too over weight, there will be larger. If you think you are the hottest couple- there will be hotter. Bottom line is literally everyone fits in. The first day we got there, a 70ish something woman was walking around in a thong and I said "God bless her!" and my wife said "I hope to be her some day"

    3) I would guess a majority of people there have never heard of cancuncare. Two of the three couples we spent most of the week with had been there multiple times and never heard of it. I am saying this because whether you meet someone here ahead of time you mesh with or not, you will find someone there you mesh with if you have any personality at all.

    4) Theme nights: The week we were there it was 95% the resort theme, and very few of the "cancun care theme". I don't know if that is true every week, but it was our experience the week we were there, but ladies if you just find some of the sexy dresses in the colors that match the hotel theme night you will blend in. And if you are wondering "Can I wear that" the answer is yes. The first night we hopped off the plane in jeans and t-shirts and went to Patty'os and nobody blinked. The last night my wife was wearing a see through shirt and a white thong and nobody blinked. We saw a guy with a mesh thong, girls with nipples protruding, etc. Go and be as sexy as you are comfortable with and trust me- whatever level that is, you won't stand out.

    My wife is also pretty conservative and after the first night at Patty'O's she stated she needed more revealing cloths. But the thing is-whether you go topless, wear a thong, or wear jeans and a T-shirt, nobody gives a freaking shit. Be who you are and you can't help but have fun at that level.

    Finally, thanks to a lot of you here on this forum (Randy and Kay, Rick and Mel, Tex (well thats what he goes by there, not sure name here) and more. You guys rock! We did not hang out a ton, but you made us feel at home. And if not for taking the time to answer some questions online here, we might never have gone.

    Yes, we have already talked about next year. Told my wife every month for the next year it would be the 12 days of Temptation, where she would get something for the next trip each month.

    Addiction? I'm hoping for that!

    That's the way I felt about my 1st WBC & I'd go again in heartbeat.

    27 trips later it's STILL THE MOST FUN I've had with most of my clothes on.

    I just think I'm due for something different.

    I don't know that they made it past checking in. We arrived within about a minute of each other- which was late Sat eve. The check in is w/in view of Patty'o's when the doors open, and its also right by the walkway to the restroom. People were wearing their sexy stuff of course. There were about 10 of them wearing "We love our church" shirts. We thought it was a joke at first, but they literally looked like they were seeing the apacolypse. Overheard a bit of them asking the clerk what the deal was.

    How do you travel to another country to a resort and have no idea what type of resort it is? You just plop down $$$ and not know if it's a place like Temptation or a 5 star pristine beach resort? Strange. I joked with my wife that for people who believe in "Gods Will" I wondered what message they thought God was sending them with this challenge.

    It does sound like a joke. But if it really wasn't then possibly their leader planned it to shock them and show them what sin looks like? Then follows with...Now please donate so we can better fight the heathens and show them the way to salvation!

    Nice trip review! Very accurate.

    That is crazy about the church group though. I am also amazed that people can book and pay for something without fully checking it out. 20 years ago I can see how that could happen if a travel agent wasn't in the know or was trying to trick someone for whatever reason, but it is 2015 and there is this crazy thing called "the internet", making it very easy to do some research.

    LOL!
    This was one of the most helpful, To-the-point, short TR's from a newbie I have ever read. Very well done and accurate.

    I would have def thought the church shirts were a joke.
    The name of the place alone should have swayed them. lol
