    Our first trip was 6 days and our second was 10. Since then we've gone as few as 4 which was way too short. We try to stick to about 5-8 that way you can get all or as many themes in as possible. The flip side of longer trips is when you meet up with various people coming in on various days everyday is someone's first as well as someone else's last. We used to always target the lingerie/casino night but with everything new now, everything is different. So after our trip in October we will have a better idea as to which days to make sure we are there in the future.

    7 days is definitely not long enough for us, we like to do at least 10 days but have done 14.. some say 2 weeks is way too long but we'd stay for even longer if we could!

    Ah, OK. Yeah in your case, I would say a minimum of 9 days if you can get the in laws to go along with it. That gives you plenty of time to experience everything the place has to offer, meet a ton of people and even leave time if you want to do something off the resort(FYI, you probably wont :p)And it wont feel like you wasted a large chunk of the trip on travel time. Either way, have a great time, by summer next year we'll be jonesing for our next TTR fix--maybe we'll run into you there :marshe:

    We started to feel that in Vegas this year. Pushed the drinking a little more than we usually do a few too many days in a row and didn't quite feel so young anymore lol.

    10 days is about right. I've done 7 days, 10 days and 14 days. 14 feels a little too long and my liver really doesn't like being there that long! 7 is good too, but I think the optimum is about 10.

    Feel the same way, we've done Nashville and Vegas and they all bring back memories of TTR. Not to mention a beer is $7 and mixed drink $$$

    On the plane right now heading back from 7 nights. I may have broke my liver this time, so i think 7 is my max. I really think it depends on how hard you party.

    Some ancient words of wisdom...different strokes for different folks.
    I think we can all agree that there is no right or wrong as long as you make the most of the stay and have the time of your life...until next visit!

    We did 6 days 2 years ago at TTR and 6 days at Desire RM this year. Both felt too short (especially TTR). We are going to do 9 day s this year in June! We might go off resort 1 day to take a break from the madness though! LOL

    10 days for us. It gives you the opportunity to take a night off here and there or even hit the room a bit early . Seven nights you have to go full out on each.

    We always do 10 days to 2 weeks. Lately it's been consistently 2 weeks!
    That way you're not as worried about taking it easy a night or 2.
    You may also choose to escape the pace of the resort and visit Isla Mujeres or go shopping one day.
    The airfare is the same big cash outlay whether your trip is 5 days or 15!
    My 2 cents.

    We noticed your mention of scuba diving while at TTR. We did so during our second trip as a mid-trip break from the mayhem of the resort. Our take-away point was that after staying stone cold sober (dive regulations) for the afternoon then returning to the Sexy Pool at 4pm, when it's in full swing, was a sight we'll never forget. Envision walking completely sober into the wildest club in any major city at 11:59pm on NYE. Fun times!

    We've done 4 nights twice within 4 months, and we're doing 5 nights in April. 4 nights definitely leaves you wanting more, which is why we went back 4 months later. I'd like to do 7, but we've had a baby at home each trip and the wife understandably doesn't wanna be away that long.

    First time we went for 10 days.. seemed a little long, last time we went for 8/9 days, seemed about perfect.. more depends on how much you drink and how well you recover ;) but just booked our May trip for 9 days again... ;)
