    I am similar to you... I like a little uppity when I'm on vacation... But at the same time, while TTR isn't as uppity as I would like, I still love it.

    As I said earlier, we're not ruling out GOV, but TTR, even with its shortcomings, has blessed us with lifelong friendships and a place we can go and not feel judged. Paty O's, as cramped as it is, still allows for everyone to be together. My concern with the nightlife opportunities at GOV is that it will separate everyone. We just like having a good time with everyone, I guess...

    It is good to have options

    We are presently booked for TTR from 5/9 - 5/16. While GOV is intriguing, Paul and I are going to watch and wait to see how it plays out. I am sure they will have "bugs" to iron out. We went to Aura in Cozumel after our TTR trip in 2012. Does anyone remember that they initially opened as a lifestyle/CO resort? That concept did not last long and it has been through 2 owners since I believe. We go to TTR for the people and the atmosphere. We know it, know what to expect and more importantly, no what NOT to expect. We do Fantasy Fest one year and Mexico the next. So 2016? If GOV is up and running smoothly in its new concept, we certainly will consider it. For now, we are dancing with the one that "brung" us.

    Now "having" the option is a comfort factor. You add in upscale ammenities for less money it's hard to look away. We'll need a few "testers" to report back to the CCC folks so that next year................hopefully.............the TTR prices will come down.

    (From the other Jess N Paul) HA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Yes, I don't expect it to be like a Hedo or anything, but I think the majority of people (nonswinging) will see the bracelets and think twice about booking there. Just my opinion.

    I think that I am going to arrange for Kellie and I to take and spend one day/night there in July while we are in Cancun for our family vacation just to see what it is like when it is in full motion.

    You do know TTR has the same day and night pass too right? Same price even if memory serves. Matt and I got one December a couple years ago when we were at a very boring resort and went to TTR for the day....and night.

    Thanks Steve and Janet..what an awesome report!! We are booked at TTR 4-24 thru 5-2, but I agree with some of the great people on this forum, maybe somewhere to think about in the future, once they get all the details worked out. We booked at TTR again because of the atmosphere and the people. And of course, breaking my rib 3 hours into our trip kinda hindered our experience the last time...going for NO injuries this time around to really enjoy our stay at TTR! Might be fun to do a day trip to GOV while we are at TTR in April tho.....

    Hmmm...I see it almost opposite--that by marketing on lifestyle sites and setting up so many private areas, they might have an atmosphere where lots of people are there to meet other couples and head off to their own spaces.

    I like the raunchy, uninhibitedness of TTR, and I like the fact that there is a large percentage of guests there to party with the crowd. I wonder if the new place will be kind of quiet because people are all sneaking off to the hot tubs?

    Uh oh, I think this may be a dealbreaker for me...

    Steve, are all of the bathrooms open so the toilets aren't private? It looks like it in the pictures.

    We'd love it even more if they bothered to update it between hurricanes!........... A suggestion..........call GOV direct..............tell them you have been a long time visitor to TTR......and ask them what GOV can do for you! Keeping options open is a very good thing!..
