    Well, we are back from a 5 days at TTR March 22 to 27 and figured I would post a review of what we experienced.

    Food - we were very happy with the food. Probably a little better then what we have seen in the DR and of course way better then Cuba.

    Service - we always had great service. The waiters and bar tenders were all very good. Always happy and willing to do whatever they could to make us happy.

    Resort - we found the resort fairly tired and in need of a fix-up. Having said that we were not disappointed or upset because we spend very little time in our room and we were also expecting it.

    Cleanliness - we found the resort to be very clean. you could always find workers picking up or sweeping all over.

    Beach - similar to the rooms the beach is not a winner. In no way does it resemble any of the well known beaches in the Caribbean. It also had a bit of a foul smell. For us this was a little upsetting as we are beach lovers. We had a pretty good idea that it wasn't going to be anything like Bavaro beach and that was OK. But the smell was a real turn off. We started out wanting to spend our time at the beach but found that we ended up spending more and more time at the pools because of it.

    Sexy Pool - although we didn't spend a lot of time there we did meet great people each time. Some swingers and some not but either way everyone was very nice.

    Quiet Pool - man was it quiet!! Enough said.

    Patty O's - We loved Patty O's. We were a little worried about hurting feelings etc. and also worried about it feeling like a spring break situation. While we were approached quite a bit everyone who did was great. Even when they realized we weren't interested that was no issue.

    As for the spring break feel I was worried about? Well see text below from an update to another post.

    Will we return - for sure. Not sure when but we both had a great time and when I think about why it's all because of the feel of the place and the sexy people. Just won't be in March. Way too many vibe killing you single guys. Kuddos to those more mature single guys who have enough class to represent singles well!

    PS: I only saw one single lady the entire time there so unsure why its such a draw for single guys? Puzzling!

    Post trip update on this topic. I was a little worried about the possible spring break feel at TTR due to our dates. Once we got there my fears were confirmed. In my opinion there were way too many young single guys there. My feeling is that this had a serious impact on the sexiness at Paty'Os each night. Participation in the theme wear I would guess was less then 20%. Probably closer to 12/15%. We made some great friends while there and the ladies like to enjoy each other a little while dancing and on several occasions I had to run off the drunk guys like little teenagers because the ladies were loosing the vibe and feeling creeped out. Really too bad when loads of classy 30/40/50 year old women(and older which is great) think they found a safe place to feel and act sexy without being judged close off to the whole idea because they are turned off buy 22 year old kids still wearing sweaty gear from the sexy pool. Complete with flipflops, hat on backward, no shirt and stupefied drunk. There were many single guys who did know how to behave and I have no problem with them. I was once one of them after all. It's just a shame that may too many didn't.

    You should try January. Although there isn't quite as many sunshine hours the weather is great and the theme night participation is closer to 40% not to mention very few single guys. It sure breaks up the winter. We've just booked today to go back January 11th next year.

    April and May are the busy months for CCC members, theme nights are always participated fully, boobs cruises are always close to full or sold out. And the weather is great, warm enough for the pools at night. Not many spring breaker type single males.

    Thx. From what we have learned that seems to be the common opinion. April it is!!

    Actually yes it is surprising considering I did some research and discovered that approx. 90% of Canadian and American spring breaks were to be over by the time we went. Perhaps I should have considered TTR's popularity among Europeans. In any case that's my mistake. Lesson learned!

    Thanks basser. Many people ,us and people that we have met, have avoided late February and March, for the reason that you mentioned. We missed Mexico this spring but we hope to make late September into early October..

    We love the beach and the pool. We have never noticed a foul smell. At the times the gulf and oceans have "red tide" type events that cause an order. Glad you enjoyed your vacation.

    Thanks Vacationfun2. We were aware that it could be an issue but hoped that being the end of March we would avoid the issue. Don't get me wrong, we had a blast and will be back. It's just a real shame for the ladies because it really hurt the vibe. We met lots of people there and they all said the same thing. Like I said, lesson learned. As for the smell at the beach, it wasn't consistent but definitely was there. We moved to the Hyatt Zilara for the last two days of our trip to get a vacation from all the partying and no beach smell there at all. Odd

    We were there late Feb early March this year just as the spring breakers were arriving and yes for sure it did kill some of the vibe at Patyo's . There was a group of guys from the UK who although they were well behaved, they were so young and out of place . There were 2 guys in the group who claimed they were 21 .....Im not kidding these two looked like they were about 14 .....Justin Beiber babies drooling in the whatever it was they were drinking . Hats on sideways , saggy ass pants round their ankles etc .
    TTR needs to control the single guys especially the groups that arrive thinking they are going to get a grope or hook up with some hot ladies who are having some ADULT TIME !!!!
    We wont go in late Feb again . Think will go with the earlier Feb Shitshow crowd next time .
    We prefer Feb to get away from the friggin freezing cold in the great white north ....
    OK rant over:icon_smile::sunny:
    Back to regular programming :ass::69::flash::daveandmo:

    We've been 3 times in March and don't find the single groups are that big of a problem. There was 1 night on our 2nd trip that I was uncomfortable and then told myself to get over it. Honestly I found the immature young women who point and stare to be more annoying.

    I'd like to try April but it just doesn't work for us and will probably be back next March.

    As for the single guy shit well like I said earlier. Kuddos to the mature single guys who realize its not all about creeping the ladies. There were plenty who partied with respect and those guys deserve a place at TTR just like the rest of us. It's the really young ones who try to grind two sexy ladies on the dance floor who are clearly enjoying each other. I bet those two ladies(one of which was my wife) didn't pay a lot of money to enjoy the 3 seconds of fear they experienced until I could get there and get rid of him(twice in two nights I may add)

    Word travels fast about TOPLESS woman and partying. This is what's attracts the young and stupid KIDS. We always go in late April to miss the spring break kids. The resort used to be a secret place for adults to get away and let loose. It's really changed. Saying all of that it's still a great place and the regulars really make it the time of your life. All the kids who want to party and think TTR is easy Pickens for topless woman step your game up and head back to Oasis where we all spent our single days partying for spring break.
