    Wish we had taken in at least one of the shows. I think Elvis is there on Thursday's.

    Tell Oscar at the buffet that he is famous on the internet...he likes hearing it..lol. Great guy who works hard to make your stay enjoyable.

    We loved lounging on the beach...beautiful water and sand. The pool games, tequila volleyball are fun.

    We paid the extra 30.00/night for an ocean view and I'm glad we did.

    Hope you have a great time!

    That was our first stay at GP so we really have no feel for how often it happens there. My understanding is most resorts are less than full these days so you shouldn't run into that problem.

    Everytime I have heard of it happening the resort provides some kind of compensation.

    Hey guys. Question: Is it pretty much all couples at GP or can some single guys expect to run into some available ladies there?

    Great Trip report and I think we would like to give this place a try next year.. I think it would be perfect place for a bit of recovery from Temptations. Though I've noted some people might be a bit offended by us just laying around and relaxing...LOL

    We just get back less then a week ago and we ARE so glad we chose to stay here!!! I felt there were enough activities to do and even some naughty ones and yes it is a good place for single guys and gals to go because we met a mixture of both and in fact partied and made good friends with quit a few of both...mt advice is to do what everyone told me.....get involved and don't be shy!! tequila Volleyball was my favorite thing to do and that is where we meet many of our friends..lol. have fun and we will be back!!!

    We have been to the Golden 3 times and TTR 3 times. They are very different resorts. TTR if you want to party and make friends, Golden Parnassus if you want to relax. We have made good friends at TTR that we keep in touch with, something that did not happen at the Golden.

    Exactly! not the same vibe or people at GP. . ppl don't plan their return around ppl that they meet at the resort. TTR draws you back just so you can meet up again and continue the series of vacations together. Ppl who were complete strangers are great resort buddies after a few trips. Never seen the Temptation chemistry on such a massive scale at any other place. Chances are if you return to Temptation, you will cross paths with someone you knew prior or someone who mutually knows someone you met at TTR. It's like 6 degrees of TTR.

    Ok I think we're doing this backwards. We were at TTR during Labor Day weekend and when we returned home it felt like we didn't have a true vacation. We were at Temptation with 32 friends, now were going to GP at the end of January 2013 for true relaxation. I truly enjoy TTR, I just want to see something different.

    The trip reports really help.

    Thanks for this trip report you two! We just got back from TTR 2 weeks ago, our 3rd trip there this year. Ali wants to go away and relax for her birthday and we were considering other places too but your report made GP sound wonderful, we'll book tonight for Dec. 14-21.

    We booked GP for late January. Our rate for 6 nites and airfare was 2898.00 total for the 2 of us. Figure around 800.00 for the air that makes it about 2100.00/6 nights = 350.00 per couple a night.


    Hope this helps. If anyone is interested I can give you the name of the place we use.
