    Awww. Thank you for the kind words. If it were up to me (kyle) we would be there in December. I am having enough trouble locking up October with the Mrs :) Something about 3 kids and all the other trips we have planned already (an out of town pool party in July, Ireland Labor Day weekend as we are penn staters and they have a fball game there). We are 100% going back to Pearl around May 9th 2015 give or take a couple days with people we met this year. The 'party crowd' from the end of the week is going to work hard to plan a full week together. We once went to TTR in feb and it was too cold. Isn't December chilly?

    We find December to be great!! Not too hot, but never too cold either. More hot than cold if you must.

    Maybe you can skip October and by December the wife will want a trip...to tide you over till Pearl again lol:icon_mrgreen:

    Ok so I must admit that you are finally piquing my interest with Pearl. Great installment of your TR!

    Interesting. I think you may have to book half TTR and half pearl. Then after the 100th time security tells Travis to put his shorts/pants back on you say 'honey, I have good news for you! Tomorrow you don't have to wear your shorts at all!' Time it so it is after the boobs cruise so he can use two days to sleep it off in luxury after breaking another drink record on the cruise :)

    By the way, hope the move to the new place went seamlessly!!!

    Okay, so it definitely sounds as though the place is much nicer than TTR. My question is, dollar for dollar is it worth roughly triple the price to go to Desire as opposed to TTR? We love TTR and had a blast there but the rooms, and their condition, left a bit to be desired (no pun intended). Then again, we spent very little time in the room but I would like one that didn't reek of mold and make me sick

    It is hideously expensive BUT the service is unbelievable, rooms are far superior, no "pot luck" if you'll get a quiet room, or a king bed etc etc

    Standard room at Pearl

    I have noticed that almost everyone (I can think of only one person on here who is the exception and he complains a lot, you know who you are :) lol) who has actually been and then says it is NOT worth it. Many say it isn't worth it but they haven't actually been and are basing the opinion off of the price tag.

    So yes it is worth it at triple the price, 500 something rack rate. Although I booked for October at $333 a night (the basic room which isnt really basic, may upgrade on site) and TTR for $133 a night so it isn't even triple the price. Well worth it.

    I was going to do that at the end but I can easily answer that now without a long daily trip report entry :)

    Booked 4 nights on cheaptickets w 25% off coupon code and buy 3 get 4th night free deal. Ended up costing me $675 (give or take $20 I think) a night so about $2700 something or maybe with taxes it was 2800something.

    Separately booked the first 3 nights in ocean view room at apprx $375 a night using a 25% off code. So another $1125.

    Then decided I wanted penthouse the entire time so asked to upgrade the 3 nights. Plus didn't want to deal with switching rooms. Quoted me $1000 for some package that was basically like drops of love where it included 2 lobster dinners, 2 massages and champagne. I negotiated them down to $800.

    4 separate times I ordered 10 sugar free red bulls at 60 pesos each. So about another $200.

    All my tipping for room service, chairs, the butlers for their special service, maids, drinks, restaurants, spa, the 20 people that worked the friday penthouse party (more on that later) etc totaled $700. In hindsite I know I way over did this. But I wanted to show my appreciation.

    $172 for the erotic massage upgrade from the free one with the package.

    $380 for our picture package (more on that later too)

    $200 for the penthouse party staffed Friday (more on that later)

    $350 for the juggling monkey
    $225 for the strippers and their ping pong balls
    Lol. Sorry I made up the last two. But ideas are churning for next time.

    I was going to say only $250 for strippers but $350 for the monkey? Must be some monkey or some bottom shelf strippers, LOL!

    Wowch! Sounds like lot of fun, and a once in a while splurge! But now you have the Desire bug, once in while won't be enough....

    Right, it was my first days off work for 2014 so we splurged. In October it is $333 so that would be $2300 for a week but we will divide it with TTR at 133 a night resulting in a week (3 TTR / 4 pearl) for $1725. Pretty good deal. And with southwest now flying to cancun and tickets costing $350 round trip it will be $2425 all in.

    Sorry. Been working too much after being out last week. My plan was to add some pics next from the photo shoot but I can't figure out how to do that from my iphone. Good news is I am home today and can do that from the desktop this afternoon. So I will catch up today!

    Kyle, thanks as always for a great trip report. You're one of the few who (like me) breaks it down into day-by-day. I think it's so much better and more thorough of a report than doing it a different way. And oh, how the excitement and anticipation build for the next installment.

    Props for throwing what sounds like just a sick party at the Penthouse. I applaud you, sir!

    In looking at rack rates for Week 8 2015, the base room is $726/nt. That's a bit steep, even if we are only staying for 3 nights. For us, this will be a cool-down from the wild Week 8 crew at TTR so I'm ok if it's just me and the Mrs relaxing with the occasional beach-side BJ. I'm just a little surprised it's this expensive for a base room.

    Ok, I am half way done Thursday May 15th but I think these will make up for it.

    We did these pics with the staff photographer. These are obviously the tame ones.

    This picture is in the disco. The disco is 100 times better than TTR nice shoes...

    These pics are on our penthouse balcony...

    These are also in the disco. There are nice couches everywhere.

    If you want to see the sexy ones then you have to come to Octoberbreast. Our current plans are Oct 3-6 TTR, 7-10 Pearl but that could change by a day or two.

    Will finish the Thursday report tomorrow. After going thru the pics it is fun time :)
