    They played music when we were there in January, but we have a BIG powered Speaker we are bringing too. David, what do you drink? I don't remember what you were drinking last year.

    It was nice to meet you both.....I did try and get that "party started" a few times....but not sure you were picking up what I was laying down.....(wink wink about the day I sat next to you at poolside and you ignored me...lol I don't think it was intentional) maybe the liquor was better than you thought? haha jk All in all the resort wasn't too bad. James and I met quite a few great people with some great stories! It is definitely what you make of it!!! Remember to ask for mimosa for breakfast if u like....they will definitely do it for you. Some of the best workers there were Lizette, Benny, Sara 69 and of course Valentina (Manager) who will take care of special requests. PS if you want to have the best massage of probably your life....walk down the beach for 5 minutes to the right and you will get it. I was so relaxed I didn't think I was even going to be able to get off the table. They are SOOOO Good!!!

    I just want to make it clear that we did have fun hanging out and talking with our fellow Cancuncare friends. I tried to keep the review more about the resort so people know what to expect, or not to expect. We still enjoyed our vacation...Sens is nothing like TTR though, no matter how much you want it to be. We ran into another couple exactly our age that were also TTR regulars, not sure if they're on this site or not, but they were also bored out of their minds with Sens and were trying to get away from the resort as often as possible. I honestly wish you all the best of luck with trying to liven Sens up with your groups...but like I said, with the size, layout, and vanilla vibe of the the vast majority of the clientele, you'll have your work cut out for you. It's a huge challenge trying to corral all the TTR exiles in one place at the same time, not to mention that, unfortunately, just because you're a TTR exile, it doesn't mean that you'll automatically click with others that also frequent TTR. Enough of the buzz kill though...keep up your positive energy and make the best of it. :)

    LoL. The TTR legends at the end of June would be my group I think. I like the sound of no security by the hot tubs too. There are 22 of us who have been to TTR together the last 2 years and I think 12-16 more so far that we don't know yet. It should end up being a great party so I'm not bringing any books. :)

    Desire is so far beyond our price range for a vacation it's not even funny and from what we've heard from people our age or younger, we would have no interest in going there anyway. We would never go to a full nude resort either. To each their own, but not our thing.

    We visited our first time for 2 nights after Temptations shut down last September. Have to say we will not be returning. Very disappointed with service and saw no evidence of management commitment to ensure customers a quality experience.

    @TonyandLisa

    Because of your Avatar, I read "you all" as "y'all" lol

    I wouldn't worry too much because there will be a large exiles presence our week, also Carlos&Alicia are bringing a huge speaker so music won't be an issue

    Plus "y'all" lucky, you have luxury of being able to go to two boobs cruise dates

    I think as long as we're there with our friends we'll have a good time...can't imagine going there by ourselves though.

    Just booked June 21 - 27. will bring my Beat and Ipod system. Sorry for anyone sitting by me ...most of my music is 70 -80- 90's.
    Went there about 10 years ago. Worked out for me, but was still boring at night back then. Would take a bus to Walmart and buy a case of Bud Light and drink it at the hotel back then. Was nicknamed the bud man that week.
    If I remember correctly, U could visit the other Oasis's hotels for their shows, etc, at night. Then hit a bar or two on the way back. Bus transportation was always 24 hours and cost a buck. Remember, U have to get off the bus across the street from the Sens or they will charge U a extra buck when they make that highway turn.
    Hoping some TTR people are around when we visit ...
