    In a recent review on another site it mentionned that the SkyBar is only open from Wednesday to Sunday. Anyone knows if this is correct?

    Out main reason to book in the tower is to access the SkyBar as we wish and avoid the 20$ cover charge. If it’s only open a couple days a week the expense is not justified and we will just book a Plusg Jaccuzi instead of a Lush Tower.

    Thoughts? Experience?

    Cheers!

    Well I dont 100% agree with that opinion. I agree the party is in the Sexy pool. Though the sky bar was one of our favorite places... loved the music, the escape and the food. We were there a Saturday to Wednesday and I was having trouble recalling the 1 day it was closed so was waiting for what others would say. Pretty sure that Monday it was closed but it was open on Tuesday. I think the tower rooms are worth it and the sky bar access is just one of the reasons.

    Having been to TTR 3 separate trips since SkyBar was opened in early December, I.would say.....SkyBar is very cool and soo much potential....but it is not worth the xtra $$ for a tower room alone.

    It is closed Mondays (was Monday and Tuesday at first)....and is 20.00 per day to hang out at.
    It is a nice chill spot....and higher end booze.
    Great lunch menu.
    Nice pool and hot tubs.
    But is only open 7 hrs a day. (11a.m. to 6p.m)
    And it can get very windy up there.

    And the music is loud and horrible.

    So maybe gauge how much you even want to be up there.
    Perhaps one or 2 days is enuff....and just pay as you go. (2 passes per day $40)

    You all have valid points... more thinking to do I guess...

    The tower is also interesting to us because it’s new... but is it worth it?...

    We liked the Skytop alot one day spent almost the whole day up there. Nice to get away from the party for a bit. Had great time socializing with other couples up there. Great food, music was good not loud, and amazing views. I am a premier member so I didn't have to pay for it. But if you do make sure to spend time up there. Better then the quiet pool

    Can't recall what day it was closed but it is a very nice spot to hang out at. Can get very windy at times but the view is worth at least 1 or 2 trips. It makes for a different party vibe than the Sexy pool... less people and a calmer groove but a very sexy place nonetheless. Food is excellent and available sitting in pool or hot tub, so the popcorn shrimps were a big enjoyment both above ... and underwater! ;)

    Staying in the Tower it says that you get pool and beach butler service, is it worth it?

    We think the tower is worth it but that is definitely not a reason. The butlers help you with reservations at restaurants but they are hard to find and we found them forgetful :( likely due to being too busy.

    What did make the tower worth it for us...
    Rooms are new and in our opinion nicer as a result. We didn’t have any major mechanical issues in our 3 trips there. We frequently had mechanical issues at the old TTR and see them still happening despite the reno’s based on people we met and trip reports.
    Access to Sky bar
    Convenience to bash

    We just got back. The Sky Bar is a beautiful place with so much potential, but as dead as a skunk in the middle of the road!!! They already have the Quiet Pool, now they also have the Dead Quiet Pool.

    It closes at 6pm. If it closed at 6am, it might have some life!

    I love this idea in theory and I’ve thought about it myself... but I don’t understand why we would want to take the party away from the sexy pool? The space is amazing. It would even be a better nighttime party replacement instead of bash (they would need to move furniture etc). It has so much potential but the daytime party is and will always be at the sexy pool.

    Sky Bar was cool!! The view and the Hot Tub is awesome. I wouldn't spend the whole day up there but worth checking out for a few, The foods great up there and if you get a good group together it could be a cool ass party spot.

    We were there over Valentines Day and had a huge party at Sky Bar. Probably close to 100 people. The resort did an amazing job staffing it for us that day. We have been twice since the opening and are going back June 30 to July 7. We have had a tower room both times and have one booked for our next trip. We think it was worth the cost.

    In the last 8 weeks they have been hosting a members and Referrals dinner up there in the early evening one night a week.
    In March we went to a private party for family and local Cancun friends and guests for aan afternoon party
    It was swanky and the menu was entirely different.
    Outstanding food at that party.

    The Sky Bar is just begging for a transfusion of thoughtful energy and implementation to make it the "coolest place to be" in Cancun

    We were there last October, and I don't think it was open yet. Headed back this October. Did I read Premier Members get free access, regardless if you are in the Tower or not? Also, is it at the very top of the Tower?

    Premier members and people staying in Tower rooms are free, everyone else $20pp. Yes, it's on the roof of the tower.

    I still haven't been there yet, must check it out some day!

    Just because it is new and different I suppose. And if I paying all that money for a suite might as well try and enjoy it. Plus a bunch of hot almost naked couples could have great benifits
