    Jan/February overlappers..I must start by saying this was the most fun we have had in years!!! Check in was swift. Thanks to our Cancun care buddies we knew how to dodge the timeshare lady. Our room was on 3rd floor overlooking patios. I worried about late night stair climbing in stripper heels..but was barefoot every night by bedtime. Our room was very nice, sexy pool and ocean view, clean, comfortable. First stop the sexy pool..it wasn't 15min before we recognized CCC people and started chatting. 25 min in, my new CCC girlfriends encouraged me to "lose the top"..."the first time is the hardest" :)It really is the people that make the resort.

    We met an unbelievably wide range of people... Brits, fellow yanks... Tons of awesome Canadians.... And nearly everyone was warm and interesting. We certainly met some people we hope to run into again in the future.

    The food was very good overall. The Asian fusion and Italian restaurants were our faves. The sexy coffee is a show that is not to be missed.

    The drinks certainly kept the party going throughout our five nights there, with the much-needed potassium from our favorite, the drunk monkeys,preventing what would surely have been chronic leg cramps from mucho late-night dancing at Paty Os.
    We danced in a rainstorm, skinny dipped with new friends, got couple massages, drank, got offered hookers from a cabbie and laughed till our faces ached.
    Do the theme nights, talk to strangers, take your top off.. And realize if "real life" was more like Temptations, everyone would smile more..;) already looking forward to next year...

    Great first timer report! So often, before a couple's first trip they post on here that they are so nervous about going for the first time. Your report should help those who expect a stressful introduction to the resort. Just be yourselves and have fun...like the two of you found out.

    Our stay was in between boobs cruises..:( but I hear it's a blast. Next time :) I've been thinking of all the CCC "helps" that really helped.. Here is a couple.. 1. Tip housekeeper and ask for extra h2o and towels for your room 2. Bring bubba mugs 3. Avoid time share lady ( it's tough to lie and b rude but it's a relief to not have to deal) 4. Make dinner plans with new friends ( we eat together every night..it's a great time to "double date". 5. Take powdered Gatorade or pedilyte ( in case u over do it). 6. Don't let body image get in your way of fun. There are all types here.. From quite large to very tiny.. We all danced together in out lingerie..:) 7. Do the theme nights.. I know.. I'm from the mid west and putting on a naughty school girl get up was kinda scary.. But it's like Halloween and it makes it SO fun..8. Take a beach bag.. It's nice to not have to run to your room 9. Talk to people..a simple "it's our first time", where are you from? What is that purple shit you are drinking?" Everyone was nice.. :)

    As a repeater it's great to read a newbies trip report...makes us vaguely remember our first time and why we're heading back for our 10th time.

    Sounds like another set of repeaters has been born!

    I wish we'd discovered CCC before our first trip last January, it would've made the trip a lot more fun. Walking into Paty'o's the first night and seeing many sexy women wearing a men's white dress shirt was confusing until we starting asking around :)

    April was a whole other story lol

    "Mr. Maple" here... just some additional thoughts...

    The music from Paty O's, was certainly VERY audible from our room, which was directly at the top of the stairs beside the Paty O's grill. Still, it didn't really affect our sleep. Most nights, we had danced ourselves into near exhaustion downstairs and generally fell fast asleep. I can understand why people tend to shy away from that area. We may next time as well. But, like I said, it certainly didn't bother us, per se.

    THE PEOPLE: I feel a need to again stress how great the vast majority of the people we met were. Friendly, non-judgemental, joyous... If Temptation was a nation, we'd certainly become Temptationistas. It truly is the people who make this place so special. Of course, it doesn't hurt having as a partner such an outgoing "people person" as my Tash. :) I am a lucky, lucky man.

    She also did a great job of following the advice found here on CC to help make it a more pleasant getaway. The powdered Gatorade/Pedialyte/Propel packets turned out to be especially helpful. That, along with her advice to TALK TO PEOPLE will equal a wonderful time for pretty much anyone who visits.

    And, yes, we will almost certainly become repeaters. And, hopefully, we'll see some familiar faces along with those of friends we haven't yet made.

    PS: We did use USA Transfers... pretty much without a hitch... although we did have kind of a tough time finding our guy on arrival in cancun. But there are just so many people out there holding up signs. But once you're actually outside the airport, just ask anyone, and they're very helpful in helping you find your actual company. We'll likely use them again.

    So here's my question about theme night/lingerie night. Like what kinds of lingerie do the ladies wear? I can't quite imagine myself in something see through, but I've seen some babydolls and chemises that I would wear. I wanted to try and get my shopping wrapped up this weekend. :D

    Find your comfort level, then push it a bit...whatever you do, you'll fit right in and no one will care

    use your imagination and wear it! I had my wife down to pasties / g string dancing in Paty Os on more than one night just two weeks ago - and neither was lingerie night! :cool014:
    Go, have fun

    It is truly amazing how comfortable ladies get at the resort. Ali wore something see-through on 3 or 4 nights in October and the participation really wasn't that huge then. I'd say buy one you're comfortable with and then buy one you'd not wear in public in a million years. You might be surprised which one you choose on the night, or which one you change into later :)

    It's all about your comfort and not being pressured but it's also about what you'd feel accepted in too.

    Oh, just as a quick note from a guys point of view, I do find it a little humorous that women who go topless at the pool all day think it'd be uncomfortable to wear more, even if it's see-through, at night lol

    You see a real variety of lingerie, the chemise is quite popular. Really, it is what You feel sexy in. And wear heels. I don't care what size you are, heels just make lingerie look better. Lengthens the leg, tightens the bum and makes you stand up straight.

    I also agree with bringing something you think you wouldn't wear. It's easy to just leave it in the suitcase but fun to have along if you are feeling daring

    Thanks for the newbie tips. We are making our first trip there April 20-27. We can't wait. Love this forum by the way. It's another great way to build the excitement.
