Great report so far! Your no longer a Temptation Virgin.
Thanks for all the memories. I look forward to remembering more as you get closer to the booze cruise lol. Seeing that elephant cup just isn't the same up here in the north lol buy strangely I get the same response when I ask if they want to see my trunk lol
Thanks for all the feedback. Work has been killing me, hence the delay for Saturday. Will do it later tonight after a quick trip to the gym. So many nice people on this site makes us miss the place even more. Already had us trying to see if we could go for a long weekend in a month but $1100 for 2 for airfare axed that idea.
Re 'someone had to sit with their butt on the plug the whole time or the water would drain out ', lol, thats a new one. Our biggest problem w the hot tub was no privacy shade = audience but if I had to stick my butt on the plug the entire time then I guess I wouldnt have been able to do what resulted in an audience in the first place so I shouldnt be complaining
We looked into going back as well for a weekend. If you care to drive to Boston Jetblue will take you both round trip nonstop for $650.

nice group early MAY!!!
Amazing price but there were only two days in May where they were offering it and both were Tuesdays. Tried to find a Thursday to Sunday or Monday and they all price at much more. We would have to just make it a long weekend since we just got back last week and are going to Florida in April for half the month (family trip). Running out of vacation time and babysitters but thanks for the info
Was about to say this was the best day of the trip but then I remembered the booze cruise was Sunday and Monday was pool bar body shot day so I dont think it was the best but it was up there.
We have gotten into a nice routine by this point...
- I got the chairs at some time between 4 and 5am before going to sleep
- did the gym at 8am (I have no idea how I got up for this but it happened)
- got the pool towels to put on the chairs that we had placed some personal effects on at 4 or 5 (we usually would put a couple mags and a room towel and we had no issues). They dont open the pool towel area until 7am? I believe.
- skipped the bfast buffet this day
TIP: dont skip bfast on one of the big pool activity days because you might end up skipping lunch too. Saturday is a big pool activity day.
- 10am went to make dinner reservations for our final night Monday night. There were 20+ couples and I knew from the other day each couple can take 3-5 mins so I skipped it and came back at 11:45 (they close at noon) and there was no one in line and I was able to reserve the Asian restaurant for Monday night. Was so happy to 'beat the system' but then we didnt end up using the reservation anyway due to other fun
So I am going to admit that Saturday is a little blury for me but I will do my best. Saturday was the best pool day by far. Beautiful weather helped but what really made it was the resort brings in a real DJ who was playing House music and really kept the party going hard all day. Saturday at the pool is not a day to miss.
TIP: I am one of those guys that constantly checks the weather forecasts. Cant help myself. For some reason they are horribly inaccurate for cancun. Saturday was supposed to be a bad day and it was one of the best. Just dont bother as they were wrong almost every day.
Music is so key to the atmosphere at the pool. I am guessing at about 1pm ish the ladies in our group were up and dancing topless by the pool. It was quite a scene. And the group got larger and larger. Reminded me of the Vegas Euro pool scene (for anyone that has experienced that) but less clothing and way more booze flowing (obviously due to it being free vs $10 a shot in vegas). Somewhere mixed in with all of this fun they had the beer chugging contest. I didnt enter because I heard there was a chance of embarrassing nakedness. In hindsite I wish I did. It was all in good fun and only 1 person had to get naked out of 14 or so in the contest. Wont let the cat out of the bag on how that works.
One of the highlights of the afternoon was when Mike (jmg###) came up with a fun little contest for the ladies, no holds barred arm wrestling tournament. I told you in the Thursday report I knew this guy was going to be crazy and he didnt let us down at all on Saturday. The rules were simple, two ladies arm wrestling, elbow had to be down but they could do whatever they wanted with their other hand or mouth. Some of the ladies got very creative. This reminds me of something else, we ran into 4 or 5 other couples throughout the trip that were at Temptation on a day or night pass but were staying at Oasis or some other resort. All said the same thing, their resort was so boring compared to Temptation. Confirmed our belief that we were at one of the best resorts on the planet. I think the winner of the arm wrestling contest was actually a visitor from Oasis.
The party continued until the sun was covered by the building. I am kind of guessing here but I think this happens at some point between 5 and 6.
TIP: Go to the quiet pool when the sun gets blocked if you want to continue to get sun. The quiet pool sun lasts a good 30-45 mins later.
At 6ish we broke off from the party with our new friends from lingerie night to enjoy their hottub (they had a privacy shade) and it was getting a little chilly.
TIP: these are small hot tubs. You cant fit more than 4 people in them and even that is tight
Shortly after getting comfortable the party from the quiet pool arrived at the balcony. You should have seen ____'s face (I removed the name because I am not sure if he wants to be known as the guy that brought the sex swing ) when he noticed there was a palm tree a few feet away from the edge of the balcony. All he starts saying is give me the 12 minute challenge, give me the 12 minute challenge. (if you are lost at this point then please refer to the MacGyver challenge post). So we say sure, what harm could it do? Next thing you know he has returned with a sex swing and 50/100 feet? of rope. A little OVER 12 minutes later (someone had to actually climb up the palm tree 15 feet so it was still quite the accomplishment) the sex swing was up hanging in the balcony area next to the hot tub. The rest can be left up to the imagination but I think this is an important point of the trip report to reiterate that we consider ourselves swayers (honestly not even sure what that means anymore) but I will say we learned a lot :aktion033: Regardless it was one hell of a party! Again, no pressure, everyone very respectful. One of those days we will remember for the rest of our lives.
TIP: If you end up with a jacuzzi room then the bartender from the quiet pool will make personal trips to your balcony if you treat him right (I tipped about $10 a visit). He brings you rounds of drinks and really takes care of you. Well worth not having to get out of your jacuzzi. The main guys name is escaping me, Alfonso I think? Great guy.
Wow, another trip report day that took way longer than I meant. Sorry about the rambling.
We did a quiet dinner at Asian with Matt/Leah after all the crazyness. Another great meal. Hit up Patty O's for a little afterwards. I think they had a DJ again. I do remember it being a great scene but we called it a night at some point between 12 and 1 since we had the Steves Famous Booze Cruise the following day with a 9:15am meet time.
One last tip, get the flaming coffee desert at the Asian restaurant. The preparation and show is great.
Will try to do the Sunday report tomorrow as the Booze Cruise was the best and these are getting more and more difficult to write as I loose my memory.
That all sounds about right. Kudo's to your memory... Maybe you are not drinking enough?:aktion030:
The water draining was a real inconvenience, really put a spoiler on the whole jacuzzi thing, needless to say, we gave up on it after a fairly short time. TRUST ME, that whole butt on a plug thing just isn't our thing (made for some really good laughs though)
Great report btw, really have to appreciate the detail in what you can remember, it all sort of blurred together for us...
In hindsite, I dont think I could have possibly drank more and 3-5 hours a night sleep didnt help. I had to work a lot last week so I didnt get to catch up until this weekend. Went to sleep at 10pm on Saturday and woke up at 1pm Sunday. Reminds me of the good ole college days. Plus I keep getting flashbacks of things I am forgetting. Like from Saturday...
It pays to get to know a member. Scott from NTBaby was a huge help in getting us quickly familiar with the resort. Plus he had a personal waiter that kept bringing Jen these great Woo Hoo drinks. Thanks Scott!
And in the Friday report I think I said I would share about the elephant cup in the Saturday report but I forgot. So northernguy88 and I won the yard size elephant cups with a huge trunk running down the side in the volleyball tourny. I think I implied what the trunk looked like in a previous post but this should clarify. So I am walking to the restroom, taking a break from the topless dance party on the edge of the pool, and two very attractive young single canadian girls (have I mentioned I love canadian girls?) grab me and say, why the hell are you drinking out of a big cock? Well you can only guess where the conversation went from there (plus you have to guess because I can barely remember). What I learned from this is Canadian girls are a hell of a lot of fun and Jen seems to really like it, as she put it, when I 'hit' on single girls. Shame Saturday was their last night but another good lesson learned
So Mike this brings me to trying to book a return trip. When are you going? I think traveling to Boston wouldnt work as we would need to leave early Thursday and return Sunday or Monday. Dont want to miss lingerie night or Saturday pool scene! And our #1 issue is actually babysitter coverage. Its really a long shot but it doesnt mean I cant try. If I could have gotten that $99 fare from Philly then it would of definitely happened!
We will be back next year in late Nov/ early Dec and again for week 8 in Feb/Mar. Might have to work hard this summer and try to do 2 trips of 10 days each.
I am the same way with almost no sleep down there (or here). There is too much going on to sleep!
Wow sounds like an awesome time! And your repost may be ALMOST as wordy as mine from a couple years ago!:daveandmo:
Yeah, sorry about the wordiness and rambling. I think I like to spell out the detail for three reasons...
1) others detailed reports really helped us out for our trip
2) i am really enjoying reliving one hell of a week.
3) i feel if i dont write it down then i will forget it. short term memory good, long term bad
Great trip report. Thanks for taking the time to write it.
Sunday 2/28 - BOOZE CRUISE!!!
I think my memory will fail me the most for this day. I know there are a lot of others who have returned recently that were on the cruise (cantwait, fun in the sun, ntbaby, gingerc, kaboom, northernguy88, kso303, islandprincess, cancuntom, etc) so please feel free to add what I missed.
Definitely do a nice full buffet before the cruise. The alcohol starts flowing early so it helped to have a good meal first. Meeting time was 9:15 in the lobby and we eventually migrated right outside the front door where a couple vans came to pick us up to take us to the boat. Very short ride. Maybe 5 mins?
Things to bring...
- sun tan lotion (apply in advance too though, biodegradeable protects the reefs)
- hat if you burn easy (but dont let your hat blow off like northernguy. The crew was so nice that we turned around to fish his hat out of the water.)
- towels. we brought two from the room but others grabbed two from the pool which of course are larger.
- $60 each payment for the cruise. Like promised their were no add ons or hard sales pitches
- $ for shops on the island. we found the prices very good. $ for tip at the end. they recommend $5 or $10 but we found the service so amazing that we did $20 and they seemed to really appreciate it.
- a larger cup might have made it easier to not spill the beers
We had already met a good number of the group the day before at the pool including cantwait, fun in the sun, ntbaby, gingerc, kaboom and northernguy so everyone was very comfortable around each other. Us and cantwait were the last to board so we ended up on the very top roof of the catermaran. Its the 10x10 section on top of where the captain sits. Boat was definitely a little tight for 38 people but we made the best of it. Of course being close together has its advantages also
I think they started serving beer and sex on the beach 5-10 mins into departure. So the party started immediately. They did a great job of keeping our cups full. We quickly realized the music was on a loop so we even made up a drinking game. Whenever the 'its my life' song or a black eyed peas song or a guns n roses song (this later switched to simply an 80's song to turn the drinking up a notch) came on then everyone in our top section had to finish their drink no matter how much was left. Also most of the tops came off and were run up the sail. (see the picture in our album on our profile).
Before you knew it we were at the snorkeling spot. Most people went snorkeling. I decided it was not a good idea due to the number of drinks consumed already. However, for some reason it did seem like a good idea to jump off the top of the boat into the water. Didnt get a picture of me but Jen did get a picture of Troy from fun in the sun. See album. Thankfully everyone survived.
Everyone reboarded for more drinks and then we were off to the island for lunch. You had the opportunity to pet a shark at the docks there. Some people did and said it was fun. I have some pics of the docks and the restaurant and the amazing blue water in the album. Lunch was included and very good. Included fruits, chicken, rice, chips and salsa, fried fish and some other traditional mexican items. Definitely a good meal. They had a bar there too, beer and sex on the beach included. Other alcoholic drinks were extra. We played some adult games on the beach which were fun and then were back to the boat.
So I think it is about 1-2ish at this point? And the party definitely got turned up a notch. I dont want to say anything anybody doesnt want said so lets just say a lot of the girls started getting friendly and everyone loves friendly girls! Sadly I had to omit those pictures from the album
Next stop was another port on the island where all the shops are. You have about an hour to browse merchandise or go to one of the local bars. Most of us choose the local bar as the USA/Canada hockey game was in progress.
TIP: you can haggle with the merchants but I found the prices so good I didnt bother. Jen wanted these two wooden turtles for the kids. Me being the expert negotiator insisted on doing the purchase. I had this great plan to negotiate him down 50%. Then he said $1 per turtle and I felt like a fool. What am I going to do, negotiate him down to 50 cents?
Back on the boat and it was body shot time. The crew brought around big bottles of shots and sprayed them all over the ladies for their husbands/boyfriends to slurp off and then of course it spread to lady on lady and the shots kept getting lower and lower and well you can probably guess the rest. Great, wholesome American/Canadian fun! An unnamed couple even disappeared down into the galley for some fun.
TIP: the crew says they will guard the door but then instead they actually open it up and waive people down to watch. We found it hillarious but only because we were not the couple in the galley.
We were running a little late and made it back to the docks around 6ish I think? Overall an amazing time. A great group of people made the cruise a time we will always remember.
Thankfully the fun did not end there. Our new best friends from the upper deck brought a twister board and we got to play twister that night and see one of those double headed showers we had heard so much about on this board. You have to clean off all that seawater some how right? Man I like writing these reviews. Have to go see Jen now before she goes to bed. Only one day left, Monday. Will hopefully finish tomorrow.
Hey Jen & Kyle!
I referenced your trip report in the March 24th provisional booze cruise thread. We seem to be having a difficult time convincing people to make it happen. I'm hoping your report gives a good idea of the fun that can be had. I'm aware that it all depends on the crowd but, your trip sounds like it was an absolute blast! Thanks for sharing :lotsofmichaelfs:
We had a lot of people join at the two week mark so hopefully you will get enough over the next couple days to push you over the top.
Your main selling points are...
- the scenery is beautiful. You don't see the really blue beautiful waters at the resort. You do on the cruise.
- it is simply a great time as shown above
- you meet more people from the resort so if it is early in your trip it is a great way to make new friends
- If it is late in your trip (like us) you will appreciate the different atmosphere
- total cost for the two of us was only 142 - 2 times 60 for the cruise, 20 tip and 2 for the wood turtles we bought. We spend half that in tips a day at the pool bar and restaurants anyway without all the extras
- get a little Mexican flavor on the island. Sometimes at the resort we forgot we were in mexico
- and last but not least, body shots. We felt uncomfortable at the pool due to all the cameras (until or last day at least) but not uncomfortable at all on the boat
Good luck and enjoy. We envy you!
Phenomenal trip report man, keep it up. Living vicariously through your details and wishing like hell we could go.
Kyle, just one question....you are awesome at this trip reporting wanna write ours when we get back !!! We can't wait to get there !! Awesome job by the way. Are you being paid...lol Can't wait for Mondays...but then we'll all be sad it ends !!!
Awsome report man, Glad to have my hat back. I told them to keep going and forget about it but I'm happy they backed up. LoL they just started collecting the tops I didn't wanna kill the mood. ha ha .
