    Just got back from GOV. Hated the place, bad food, long lines, bad entertainment, way too many 20 year old singles yelling until 5 in the morning. No sexy vibe at all. And unless Temptation which we went to in 2013, 2012, really limits the single guys or goes couples only, we will not go back to Cancun again.

    We were there a month ago. Met some cool people for sure, but were bored to death with the "resort", and you're right.....the food was HORRIBLE in the buffet. We dont need the entertainment really, but thats a good thing because it was nonexistent. The staff never smiled, and our room windows leaked wind and water. And way too many young single guys for our liking. We would never go back.

    We'll be sorry to lose someone, but there's not been that swarming pack of single guys since the rates went up... not that we've personally experienced or noted on the CCC board's Trip Reports.

    And, going exclusively Couples-Only sort of cuts down on the funtimes for certain... groups of folks.

    We just got back on Saturday, the first 1/2 of the week was great; the second was a "Spring Break Sausage Fest".

    Met some great people, made alot of our own fun. Sara and her team were working their butts off, but, I think the owners put their restrictions on alot of what they try and do.

    Sorry, your vacation wasnt up to par.

    I have to agree with Mark's assessment. We showed up in Thursday and had 2.5 amazing days in the main pool. But apparently Saturday was douchebag singles guy check in day because from the foam party on....we couldn't be around that pool. One single guy took a lady's top off without permission of her or her boyfriend, which almost started a fight. Another came up behind my wife and cupped her breasts while I was fetching drinks. And that first guy walked into the middle of the pool during one on the entertainers synchronized swimming routine...shouting over the music for the DJ to play some reggae. We had a blast at GOV but needed to spend the last two days by the "quiet" pool and on the beach.
