    Until GOV is up and running I will be enjoying the brand new Hedo in Jamaica in April with the bar and night club until 5am! Too many things gone wrong at TTR last March.Then GOV in September with other migrating friends...

    So this Dream Vacations group, whose site implies they operate cruises topless optional and clothing optional/lifestyle resorts all over the world and are connected with Temptation, Desire, etc., they just buy from those and then re-sell to their clients, not actually affiliated, is what you're saying?

    Yes they buy the rooms and resell them.

    My gripe with sites like that is that they rely on convincing the customer that they are the official hotel site, when they aren't.

    Yeah, and I would assume they must be more expensive, because they're the middle man as opposed to say, orbitz... I did get a $50 off voucher for registering with them, but I'm guessing they're at least $50 more.

    Say, I have another question, Steve. It's possible I'll once again have to get my own room and/or be in a three person room. On your next list of questions can you ask how they compare re: single supplements, and 3 people rooms (I'm assuming, like TTR three is the most in a room? unless it's a suite?)

    Like everyone says, thanks for all your help!

    Fantastic! Perfect for us as Michelle is out of commission until April with new knees on the way. We will have time to see the reviews.

    I compiled a new list of questions based on comments here and had a reply back today from GOV Management:

    Re Contacting the hotel:
    Re Theme nights/ entertainment program
    Re Room Types
    Re Restaurant dress codes
    Re pool heating:

    Ditto that! Thinking there will be a great vibe at GOV - just looking at the grounds , the rooms, restaurants etc...... Liking the hot tubs! We've been to other adult only resorts like Desire, TTR Cabo, etc that had hot tubs and they really add a lot to the vibe, versus everyone departing at like 4:30 or 5 pm because there is nowhere to go and continue to hang out.

    The only GOV video on Youtube is from early in 2013, but clearly shows a "roped off" area on GOV beach with a sign thats reads "Grand Only". I suppose that it is similar to TTR's "premier" sections.
    I also assume if your staying at the "Grand" Oasis Viva, that you are a "Grand" member. There are also some bars/restarants that are Grand Only !!

    Steve: you already probably have it as a future question but we dont see the answer re the premier membership rewards and the use of the Hot Tubs or other exclusive areas of the resort?

    They scrapped the Grand/non Grand concept. Everyone who goes has access to everything, for now at least.

    As above, currently there is no 'Premier' or 'Grand' option.

    I think they are going to introduce something along those lines but haven't yet and I have no detail so far.

    Steve thanks for sending on more questions. Hopefully we all will be able to find hot tubs when the pool is in the shade...lol.
    Excited to see their night time entertainment and themes in place.

    I see where GOV's age requirement is 21. What is TTR's minimum age? Does anyone know?
