    After looking at your pictures and this post I might starting considering going. We've been to Temptations 4 times we usually go in the winter months. It looks like a good time.
    Is it really crowded? We are a pretty laid back couple with high stress jobs we are looking for relaxation when we go.

    We never felt it was overly crowded...never had a problem getting loungers and there were usually enough umbrellas to go around. Of course, the hotel wasn't at 100 percent capacity the week we were there (I think it was somewhere around 3/4 full). We've never been to Temptations, but from what we've seen and read about the place, it seems to be non-stop party, especially around the sexy pool. At the Golden Parnassus, that wasn't the case; it was pretty laid back around the pool most of the time except during tequila volleyball every afternoon.

    Thats sounds nice, maybe our speed. We have always enjoyed TTR but have been feeling since we joined CC that maybe it isn't the place for us. I've been getting the vibe it is a bit clicky and narrow minded. We are the kind of people that mind our own business and never mind the next guy. as in Live and let live. Not here to judge others for their lifestyles or behavior, as long as it isn't affecting us. We are thinking about splitting our next trip, 1 week at either resort and 1 week at the Island it is very nice there. But we will see we have a few months before we head back to Mexico... sad to say. And Thank you for the info, it really does sound nice.

    I was a regular a golden. Tiki bar is fun at night but it lacks the bight life that Temptation has. Really depends on the crowd. Wife had so many obvious pictures taking of her it was insane.
    the crowd is laid back and I have met alot of great people there, but between the 2 I'm going back to Temptation before I got to golden again.

    Went to golden once! Food and service was not even close to the other resorts we have been to. I personally would rather spend a little more $ and stay at a
    Place with nicer facilities and good food and a fridge in the room. Two of the five days we were at golden they ran out of beer!? How do you run out of beer? The lunch was the same Every day. Steak At the old barn was terrible. Beach is very nice though. Tiki bar was dead every night.
