    I ve always enjoyed the music. Nice background noise for me as well. And as it was said earlier if you get too overwhelmed with the techno sounds just chill out by the quiet pool.

    Yeah, they definitely need to get a new DJ or at least have a couple of guest DJs during the day/nights. Nothing inspires someone more than the thought that another person may be better or take their job...prolly be much more open to taking requests.

    I called it techno as well, but I know it is "house" music that everyone is referring to - and mother fuck if I hear LMFAO's Party Rock Anthem again ... for the love of God, that music is ok with some variety, but they really do play the same 5-10 songs over and over every day and night.

    The best times in the pool and at Paty O's was when they had 80s music. People were dancing in the pool and singing along. There was a live band that was really good with the 80s stuff. Then they had a show by the pool one night that was a "Coco Bongo Lite" kind of thing, with people dressed up as the singer or groups - and it was mostly 80s/90s music. I really liked that. After that show, they were playing new wave and the "cooler" 80s stuff, not the "Billy Ocean 80s" as I describe some of the 80s pop that you would not find on my iPod!

    I can take the house music for a while, if there were more variety and if they balanced it with 80s/90s. They don't take requests because I think they just have the same CDs they use on shuffle, and they don't really have a DJ who can find a specific song.

    They did have a movie song contest at the sexy pool one day and I tried to call them out on a major error they made. They played the theme from Lord of the Rings, and 3-4 people said that was the movie and the chick in charge said no. I was like WTF?! That was totally the music from LOTR, but she said it was Pirates of the Caribbean. I call substantial bullshit on that, their answer key was wrong and I feel sorry for the people who lost the game because she would not listen, and I really don't think she even knew the difference herself.

    for the one millionth time, it's not called Techno: it's called House music. Techno disappeared in the mid 90's. You need to remember that house music along with hip hop is the dominant dance music genre the world over for the last 15 years. Temptation is a party resort and therefore dance music will be played there, in this case being house music.

    have to agree with most here, don't really notice the music during the day except as background noise. Same mostly at night except when dancing, but when we wanted to change it up for a song or 2 it only takes moneyto make it happen :mnm:

    I was there last January, had so much fun I did not even notice the music. This April I'll try to tone down the fun and listen to the music and report back.

    you are so right about the DJ.....its the one huge negative about TTR. Otherwise, we are very positive about the place....but there is just no excuse for the continuous redundant shit.

    Just be thankful we're not still in the era of "The Macarena", "Who Let the Dogs Out", and "Follow the Leader".

    Having returned from my 5th trip to TTR three weeks ago, I have to say the music was more varied this trip than any other trip.

    I have not written a TR for the first time because I did not want to say anything negative (you get eaten alive). The fact that you gave the food 9/10 makes me wonder if something changed after our week. The food was awful during our week. Luckily, we do not go there for the food. We never feel bloated or full which is nice when you are half naked most of the day.

    We have never really had a problem with the music. We have even taken CDs down for them to play without any issues but maybe that is because we know them. It does help if you send a sexy topless lady to make the request.
