Or icing on the cake
If I was the upper management at GOV, Steve and Janet would get VIP treatment at my resort , free rooms on request, run the boobs cruise out of my dock , and put Steve on my payroll as a marketing genius with Cancuncare. I do not beleave TTR would be what it is today without Steve and Cancuncare, I might be wrong but I don't think Steve get his just do from TTR. I'm pretty sure TTR believes Steve would not exsist if was not for them... matter of fact I have heard that from them.........
Huh, good call on that side of the thought train. Guess I didn't consider it that way. I must still just be stuck in the TTR mind frame!
Sounds to me like they just want the best of both worlds, without committing to either.
They want to be sexy, but with even more rules. No thanks.
They want to allow day tourists to come by and screw with the vibe. No thanks.
I really wish this was positioned between TTR and Desire, because that's exactly what I'd like to see. Unfortunately, this looks like it's positioned between TTR and every other resort in Cancun. Not what I'd be interested in.
Thanks for the information though!
We look forward to reading a few reviews to see what everyone thinks. TTR rocks, but ultimately it's the people that make TTR a blast.
I like keeping people guessing, part to the mystery. Lol :mnm::mnm::mnm::mnm::mnm::mnm::mnm::mnm::mnm::mnm::mnm:
Now your talking, a few crazies and we can make that resort hop. Arm twisted, lol somebody stop me.:bootyshake:
Liking the gym. Yep it's got weights.
Steve , are the indoor bars non-smoking ?
Even though Patio,s is outside I found myself leaving early almost every night cause there was no air circulation.
i have to agree on that one donald, even though im one of the dreaded smokers, i dont think there is enough air movement in patios. with alot of determination and e cigs, i hope to be a non smoker next year. so i hope no indoor smoking.
I would expect so, every indoor bar in Mexico has to be non smoking by law.
I don't recall noticing any, but 8 rooms in 30 minutes is quite fast.
There is one pic of a room with a separated off wash basin area, but the actual toilet is beyond the door you see behind it.
Another pic has a sliding mirror partition from the bathroom and can be opened so you can see the ocean from the jacuzzi that is in the bathroom.
Received a reply to my email enquiry regarding brands of drinks. I have a list but I am still not sure that every brand is available at every bar for everyone.

So agree 100% Love the people and energy.
I was looking at Grand Oasis Viva's website Grand Oasis Viva: All Inclusive, Adults Only Cancun Resorts and it has "Visit our other Hotels and Resorts" and it has Desire, Desire Pearl, and Temptation on there so my question is, is GOV owned by the same parent company as the other three?
No it's not owned by the same company.
That website is not the official website, just another unscrupulous website owner who buys up a confusingly similar domain name and profits from misleading people.
Big thanks to Steve for all of the leg work and great info.....makes it a tough decision!!
Thanks Steve and Jannet for all the hard work, If they make their price point right it may just be a viable option to TTR\Desire.
The fact is that the prices have changed at TTR\Desire so much over the last year, we may be priced out of it in the future. Hopefully this competition brings the prices back in check.
We would hate to loose our friends to GOV though, lets see what 2015 brings.
We love the people and the sexy vibe at Temptation, but have never really been huge fans of the food, lack of luxury, lack of room service, and the "run down" condition of many of the rooms (every time we have stayed there we have had to change rooms because of floods/leaks/jacuzzi tub grossness). The price was right the last two years to overlook much of what we didn't like, but now that the prices have gone way up, the expectation bar on our end also rises substantially.
If we can get the sexy vibe, boobs cruise access, meet awesome people on the forum just like always, and also (for what looks like the same price or less) new/renovated rooms with more luxurious accommodations, room service, more food choices (better food??), indoor bars that don't smell musty, and a nice beach that is more "swimming friendly" - we are SO there at GOV on our next Cancun trip - it isn't even a question!!
