    The closing party was the best party I've ever been to. Couldn't miss the big reopening.

    Who else will be there?

    We'll be there!

    We booked with Skoosh so I'm a little worried about our reservation but if all goes we'll be there.

    We are there! Although my thoughts are that it will be more of a PR thing than anything wild and crazy. Hopefully I'm wrong..

    If we like the new TTR on August 15th then we would like to come back for the official grand opening. So was just looking for options where I can book now and be refunded if we change our mind. My old go to booking site cheaptickets is sold out. So tried hotelscombined which launched to availability with hotelsquickly and Skoosh but Skoosh is a lot more. We have successfully used Skoosh in the past but never heard of hotelsquickly. What to do. What to do.

    We will be there from Oct 13-20 can't wait to see the new place and hope to see some of the old staff as well as great friends we have met in our travels to TTR. Looking forward to the theme night shopping and a great week of fun.

    Cheers,
    Tracy & Chris

    We're there October 8-17, so it's definitely going to be a rough trip home!

    We were there for their 25th anniversary party back in 1999. In planning for this Grand Re-opening party one must remember that for any of the shows and stuff, the hotel guests will be allowed in, but in the back behind all the visiting dignitaries. I mean they have invited the President of Mexico to attend. :) He probably won't be there but expect lots of other local celebrities and politicians to be attendance. For those staying in the hotel before the 16th you may see stuff like restaurants unavailable one night as parties are hosted, areas closed of now and then, etc. Probably won't be major inconveniences but something to be aware of.

    Still will probably be one heck of a party!

    Can't see that happening, certainly didn't happen for the closing party. The only time I've seen restricted access for guests is if one of the family are having a birthday party or wedding etc or when there is big sit down show like New Years Eve with arranged seating and the front seats get reserved etc.

    That's what I was talking about at the shows... "that for any of the shows and stuff, the hotel guests will be allowed in, but in the back behind all the visiting dignitaries".

    As for the rest, well one would expect a little different attitude from tear the place down to let me show you what I have built.

    But only time will tell. :)

    If it's a "sit down and watch" show I won't bother going to it anyway. Sitting in (or standing behind) an orderly row of seats watching some dancers isn't my idea of a party. :)

    Only thing that would worry me with the Grand Party and lots of guests being invited. We were there when they were getting the planning permission and it was such a dull 2 weeks. Everything was toned down as not to upset anyone. All games were dull, even the Wet Tee Shirt competition the girls were asked to put their tee shirts back on at the side of the pool. We are happy to be there from Sept 29th - Oct 13th.

    Actually the 25th anniversary show was really good.

    They built stage out over the sports pool so they could use the water in some of the acts.

    Enrique was MC'ing the event.

    My only complain was petty but the VIP in front of me had a huge bald spot on his head and my flash kept reflecting bad off his head. Was before I had a digital camera so I couldn't tell till I got home and developed the picture. :(

    Even premier is out. I have the feeling they have locked all bookings for a few days before and after the 16th to have rooms available for any special guests. That and it is the end if a busy week for us Canadians with our thanksgiving the previous Monday

    I was able to get a room the 8-18th through Hotels Combined. I will of course call the resort in a few days to confirm before booking airfare
