    Hello everyone. Great week. Already planning a return trip in October.

    1st some background. We have 3 kids, pretty vanilla at home. Sure we do a dinner or two and occasional night out to a club to see a DJ we like but nothing like TTR at home. TTR is our chance to escape the real world, pretend we are on spring break, meeting nice interesting people and maybe throw in a little sexy time. Draw your own conclusions as to what that means, I am not even sure anymore. :)

    What we love best is the people. We like to meet a wide variety while at TTR, wandering from group to group, couple to couple. We find the different perspectives, lifestyles, backgrounds fascinating. Young/old (but young at heart), swingers/swayers/vanilla, from all walks of life. Keeps things interesting and a party but we always leave wishing we spent more time with ____ or had dinner with ___. We wont list names in the report because we always leave someone out accidentally. So sorry for not getting to know everyone (we really wish we could) and for those of you that we partied with we hope you enjoyed the body shots as much as we did :)

    If you cant tell already I tend to write a detailed report and it takes me a couple days sitting down to write it. So if you prefer the reports that dont ramble on with lots of detail then maybe this one isnt for you. Sorry.

    TRIP PLANNING
    1st some pre trip advice. My party drink of choice is Sugar Free Red Bull with a good orange vodka, i.e. Grey Goose Orange. The resort has Skol Orange which isnt horrible but I wouldnt call it good. They also have Sky vodka but not flavored. We like Rum also and they do have Captain Morgans.
    TIP: You are allowed 1 duty free liter of alcohol into Mexico per person. We purchased a Grey Goose Orange at the airport duty free story in Philadelphia. This was a good deal cheaper than the duty free store at the Cancun airport. However, my local liquor store was cheaper than both. The liquor store and OXXO convenience store near TTR only had basic liquors. No grey goose, stoli, etc. So bring 2 liters if you like a specific liquor.​
    TTR does have Red bull on sale for $5 each. But not sugar free so we brought our own. The liquor store across the street has it for around $4. We brought 20 ounce Bubba mugs too which also helped with the drinking.
    TIP: Bring enough sunscreen. We used an entire can of 30 in 4 days and had to purchase another for $30 US. Ouch. ​
    We went for 7 nights and purchased thru Alpharooms for $130 a night. Amazing that you can stay in Cancun for $130 night and it includes Alcohol and Food. What a deal!
    TIP: When pricing your trip on Alpharooms play with your dates. Move the arrival and departure date by a day. Try breaking up the reservation into two reservations. Frequently they will quote the nightly rate at the highest night you are staying. For example, I am pricing a week in October and it quotes me at $160 a night for all 7 nights. But if I take the last day off I get $138 a night. Makes more sense to book 6 nights at $138 and 1 at $160 then all 7 at $160! Also the prices change multiple times a day so keep checking until you get what you want. Under $160 should be considered a great deal.​
    In past trips I upgraded upon arrival to a jacuzzi room for $50 something a night. Wow was it worth it. Read our 2010 report for details :) This trip due to the expected high April occupancy rate and potential oversold situation I emailed the resort directly a month in advance asking for an upgrade. They offered the Drops of Love package at $100 a night. Included was the jacuzzi room, priority reservations at the restaurants, a massage, daily chocolates in the room, 1 private lobster dinner on the beach and 1 jacuzzi treatment that included roses, candles and bath salts. Well worth the extra money. Highly recommend it. I will describe the amazing romantic dinner later in the report.

    I told you I write too detailed. I didnt even get to the first day details. I will continue with the first day tomorrow. Here are some pictures. Jen upon arrival and the two of us having dinner on the beach.

    Lol. Sorry. I have to get up in 6 hours and Jen wants some attention (or maybe it is me that wants to give her attention after thinking about last week). Regardless, the cousin doesn't arrive until Sunday so I have to write Friday and Saturday 1st :)

    Fiday 4/26

    Flight, customs, transfers with USA Transfers were smooth and easy.
    TIP: If you are like me and want to get to the resort in record time after landing then remember to fill out the arriving AND departing info (found at the bottom) of the immigration form they give you on the plane. 90% forget and are reminded once you get off the plane. If you remember and fill it out on the plane then you bypass everyone rushing to fill it out and go to the front of the line at immigration. Every minute counts when you want to get to the sexy pool!!!
    Most people on here know this by now but for newbies...going through the corridor to get outside to USA Transfers be sure to ignore all the people asking where you are going or asking who your transfer is. They are timeshare and they will tell you anything to get you to come with them including that they are USA Transfers if you say you are looking for USA Transfers.

    Trip to the hotel was slightly over 20 mins. We had a special check in desk for drops of love where we set up our dinner reservations for the week, including our private lobster dinner on the beach and the hot tub treatment. Afterwards they tried to get us to do the timeshare presentation. They pushed harder than ever this time. On our 1st and 2nd visit I said we had already been here and done the tour and were not interested and they left us alone. This time I tried the same thing and they said this is different, the resort has changed, it isnt timeshare anymore but a discount program, etc. We just kept walking and gave them our name so they would take us off the call list for the next day. They call people they think may still be interested in the presentation early the next morning so it is important to give them your name so they dont call. FYI, people who did do the presentation estimated it took 1.5 to 2 hours.


    We headed off for the Sexy Pool about 11:30. Of course at that point all the chairs were taken so we went to the beach where there are always chairs available. Was surprised to see a couple people sunbathing nude. No one seemed to mind and no one bothered them. I had heard that the resort would tell you to put clothes on but for some reason this day they didnt bother. Eventually made our way to the sexy pool and started meeting many of the people we met in advance on the site. We specifically picked this week based on the people. There were a lot of people with similar interests to us and we could tell in advance it would be a party week. The planning definitely paid off.
    Note: we are picking our week for the fall the same way. Looks like October 3rd - 12th timeline is setting up to be a good party. Come join us! We will likely pick 5 nights somewhere in there.
    We got right to the shots with several groups of instant friends that all made us feel welcome. Sadly Jen succumbed to the 1st day curse as a result. I did however make it to the foam party / white party / glow night. The party was great with a nice DJ playing Dance, House with some Mexican flavor thrown in. Patyos was packed from 10-2. Music stopped a little before 2 but people partied until 4 or 5ish.

    The foam aspect of the party was a letdown. The problem was the wind. Great concept that should work on a non-windy day. They put a machine on the overhang that drops foam onto the dance floor. It didnt get too high (maybe 1-3 feet?) as the wind was blowing it to all areas of Patyos. Kind of a pain as it flew in your drink or smacked you in the face while talking to someone.

    The glow part of the party was fun. It is bring your own glow sticks/paraphernalia. We brought a tube of 100 sticks. I made a flower out of the sticks with the help of some friends and stuck it down my linen pants. Wow I met a lot of friends that way. People cant resist touching a glowing flower! :)

    Jen made a recovery around 1am and she added a glow flower to the back side of her dress. Not surprisingly more people then wanted to touch her flower over mine :( I slightly remember people taking pics (Scott/Jen?, maybe someone from the Call Me Maybe group?). If so please share.


    Definitely fun times to start the trip with a lot of fun people. I always end the night with two hot dogs and french fries. I find them better than the hamburgers. They dont have them out so you just have to specifically ask for them and they hook you up!

    Here is a pic of me. Wish I had one of Jen. She looks a lot better. Man I was a mess after being up 24 hours straight with a pool party then a foam party :) Note the strategically placed flower.

    I think you all are going to be really disappointed when we get to the cousin part of the report. Too much hype. Plus I have been told I can only say certain things :(

    No one cares about the foam party or drinking contests or hot tub party or the infamous 4/30 cruise or AIWC body shots? Everyone wants the reality show family drama? I have to get to Sunday first and my job and 3 kids are slowing me down. One more teaser... most folks guessed really wrong on what would happen. :)

    Saturday 4/27

    Ok I will write a short Saturday report from my iPhone on the train ride home from work (so excuse any misspellings, grammar, etc) so we can get to Sunday.

    Saturday Jen got up at 5:30 to ensure we got prime chairs at the sexy pool. From past experience Saturday is our favorite day at the pool due to no mix tape and a real house dj. We previously liked sitting with our backs to the beach close to the sexy pool bar, about 10 or so chairs away. Great sun and view of the action/events. Too close to the bar and you are blocked by people standing and watching. At 8:30 we came back out and are stuff was gone and replaced w premier white towels. Apparently at around 6 the premier wait staff reserves the first 15 or so chairs with the backs to the beach near the pool bar for premier members. So we were bumped. 2 years ago they didn't do this so we didn't know. I gave them cash for the chairs back as I didn't want them missing out on tips and promised not to sit there again. For the rest of the week we mostly sat near the island in the pool with our backs facing the buffet. This was the best spot for maximum sun. It is also where everybody heads for shots when the shade starts at the other end of the pool around 5. The negative for some might be it is right next to the dj speakers. We prefer the action, sun, noise so it worked for us. If you prefer the quiet sit on the end where the circular tubs in the pool are. For the rest of the week we got our chairs at 6 to be safe. Depending on the day they were all gone at some point between 7:30 and 9 I believe.

    They have beach volleyball every day at 11 so we did that. Then some of you might recall me talking smack on here about the drinking contest and how I was going to represent USA. Previous years I didn't enter and regretted it as I watched the world vs USA with USA getting crushed.
    So that is the best tip I can give. Even if you are new enter the contests. They are so much fun. Break out of your comfort zone. Nothing is too embarrassing. You are building life long memories. We did everything we could this trip to maximize our time together and our enjoyment.

    So anyway, I entered the contest, 8 people from USA vs 8 people form the world (a mix of Canada and the uk). It is 1:1 chug a beer. Of course with how jacked up I was I shot my load early, uhm, I mean I crushed the guy but spilled a tiny bit on my chest and was disqualified. USA proceeded to get crushed :(. I figured I would get my revenge on the boobs cruise chug off on Tuesday.

    We met more friends and did more shots. Sadly still no AIWC but we made up for that later in the week (it is amazing how AIWC turns the party up a notch). We did Asian for dinner. It was ok. Not a ton of flavor but way better than the buffet. With later trips I asked them for extra spicy and that made it way better.

    At night the party was a pool party by the sports pool. First it was an impersonator show which really isn't our thing but I admit it was entertaining. Then they had a dj that played rap which was a nice change from the mix tapes and house. This is where we first met the Tits n Tats group. What a crazy group. Hanging out with them I think I finally realized why the resort is called Temptations. When a tall very attractive blonde starts massaging your ____ (keeping it PG for you Steve, kind of) right out of the blue then grabs your wife's rear when she walks up you are presented with all sorts of Temptations! We were good though, at least for now :)

    We love people watching and meeting a variety of people and I think we made it to 4ish this night. Just loved watching who was left at patyo's at that point and seeing their various states of drunkenness. Good times!

    We have always sat at the other end of the pool. Not because we don't like to be in the middle of the action, but we see the value of being able to walk into the pool rather than taking a plunge. Our chairs end up being a placeholder for our stuff as we spend most of our time wading in the pool.

    Thanks all for the kind words. Sorry for the delay. I needed to focus on the mothers this weekend and the best way to keep them happy was food, alcohol and me to keep the 7, 5 and 1 year old busy for most of the weekend. :)

    Les, the word was Bubbles. Thanks for being a good sport. For those that dont know Les has an accent and when he said Bubbles it just made Jen crack up in uncontrollable laughter. Poor Les had to say Bubbles at least 5 times a day. Les hopefully we see you at the end of april, beginning of May next year. We really liked that time.

    I left one important item out of the Saturday report. At 4am we went back to the jacuzzi. For those that dont know they are around the quiet pool on the ground level. After years of trying I finally convinced Jen to join me on the balcony for some fun without the privacy shade down. The ledge on the ground floor balcony worked perfectly. Three years ago this never would of happened. Temptations has a way of freeing all those inhibitions. We definitely had some voyeurs which just amplified the fun. Glad to finally contribute to the balcony shows I have heard so much about on this site.
