    Any idea if it is less rowdy at TTR during the "slower season"? We had reservations for GOV in late September and we were excited for the sexy entertainment and topless optional but not the rowdy in-your-face partying. GOV seemed the perfect fit but now that fit is gone. Could we make our own not-so-rowdy party at TTR so that we could still enjoy some naughty adult behavior but not have frat party nonstop action? Thoughts and feedback appreciated. Didn't want to post on the TTR page as some of the diehards there who don't represent the masses are quite brutal.

    Honestly Temp can be as crazy or as laid back as you want, I wouldn't worry about it. Just setup shop at the quiet pool during the day and skip out of PatyO by 11pm and you'll be fine ;)

    We were there in July last year. We're not (usually) the loud, crazy in your face party people, but we do like to have a good time. We had a lot of laughs and a lot of fun last year and are willing to do it again. We met a lot of fun people last year and had some great stories to bring home.

    We love the beach and that's why we booked GOV. The atmosphere didn't seem as wild, but sometimes chilling is as important as unwinding.

    Hang out by the quiet pool if you want an atmosphere without the frat party....although you can still see some x-rated sights hanging by the quiet pool!

    We booked Gov for the same reason, a little more chill and a nicer beach. But I have always wanted to go to TTR also. We would have changed to TTR, but we are arriving 10 days, TTR is booked solid for both week ends we are there. I am sure we will have a fun time at GOV. Hopefully, other CCC members will be raging at the GOV also.

    I think by reading this board you can get a really exaggerated idea of how crazy TTR really is. Remember, we are the die-hards, but the majority of guests there any given time have never heard of this site, booked through Orbitz, etc. because the price is right, and are just there to relax and have fun.

    The "frat party" usually gets going late afternoon at the sexy pool. But the quiet pool and beach are chill all day.

    At night, PatyO's has clusters--the laid back people find each other, and the crazies also find each other--but everyone respects the others' space. People aren't going to be in your face demanding you participate or making you uncomfortable. People really respect each other's comfort levels.

    I was there once in early October, and TTR was no wilder than any family all-inclusive we've been to in Mexico.

    Been to TTR many times but mostly when it was BBG. We were spoiled by Desire RM's beautiful beach and laid back atmosphere. We chose GOV this year to be close to the downtown, beautiful beach and adults only. luckily several friends are going too so we are ready for the adventure!!
    Come on May 17th!!!!!!!!

    Pearl is nice, we went for a tour one day when we were staying at Desire RM last year. You know you can visit each resort if you are staying at one. the rooms looked nicer, but I liked RM better, of course they are both great just out of our budget this year.

    Thank you for all of the information you give us on this site. You are really spot on. When we booked back in December, we thought GOV would be closer to TTR and also thought the new concept would lure more CCC members. With Valentina's response on face book tonight, I think we will still have a great vacation.

    Are you celebrating a few birthdays on the 20th? Hopefully this isn't perceived as impolite.

    I believe you write the truth, summerbum. I'd love to try out TTR and be able to party as much or as little as I'd like. It is just a matter of convincing my wife. She's "Beachaholic" on here. Someone hassle her please :)

    Can you just imagine if TTR had the GOV's beach ? Whew ! They could probably double their prices and get away with it. Generally speaking a lousy beach has always been one of the things that turn off those die hard beach bums no matter how good a vibe. I guess that is why everyone had such high hopes for GOV. There is also something to be said about a place being to big as well. Many of use don't like to go above 3 floors. It's a bummer to be wasted and having to wait on an elevator to take you up 10 or more floors to your room....haha.

    You may want to look at the Golden Parnassus. It has an AMAZING beach (I would walk an hour each way feeling very safe, unlike at TTR), is also adults only, topless optional with 9 bars, 4 restaurants that don't need reservations, a buffet and snack place serving burgers etc open almost 24 hrs by the pool and free 24 hr room service. There is a lounge with pool tables, music and some entertainment and the Tiki bar sitting almost on the beach to hang out at night. Staff is great as at TTR and if you want you can go to the sister resort for dinner or the shows there. It's not as crazy at TTR but still very fun.
    I arrive at GOV on Friday since it was between the 2 so I'm hoping for a fun time there. Wish me luck, 2 more sleeps.

    We've only been to TTR once before May 2013 but really it was just fun not rowdy or crazy in any way. It was a party at one or two place and the entire rest of the resort was quiet. We could go into the loud area and play or stay out (which was most of the resort) and relax if we wished. If you looking for fun go to the sexy pool during the day if you want relaxing there are two other pools and large area to just sit and relax. We love TTR

    Trust me, It won't be the first time Chinos humiliated him on his BD! He's made many rounds at the BBG pool (TTR back in the day) in a thong and condom hat!! Oh, the good ole days.

    Been to TTR 4 times... first time was like the typical newbies...second time sat on the beach- booked reservations at the various restaurants...and talked to no one (needed a chill adult week for ourselves), the last two times we connected with a few Cancuncare folks and found some middle ground.

    The "frat" part you refer to is simply where you decide to hang your hat during the day, at dinner...and after.

    Enjoy the place any way that suits you!

    hope that helps you to realize each of us participates to various degrees...all at the same time...lol
