    It may be good for someone to tactfully explain to them prior to arrival. Look, you have a large group that wanted to go to TTR. They were either pushed to your resort or chose your resort. You may not WANT to be TTR, but these people could drive your sales till TTR reopens. If you impress people you may get return customers.

    If you ignore and piss off these customers, you can bet that you will not only loose the rest of the potential guests waiting for a resort; but you will also have a tirade of bad reports on tripadvisor!

    Don't waste your money, For the first time ever after 7 visit at TTR I was happy to leave GOS and return home! I would have gone to Breathless Riviera Maya as they have soft opening rates and it sounds like a party there. It is right next to Desire Riviera Maya

    Dont let someones negative experience affect you, there will be over a 100 TTR people there so its gonna be epic. Im just glad the Debbie Downers wont be there when we are for Halloween. The people make TTR the resort it is, same goes for GOS and we have a large crew about to turn that resort inside out

    Hey I didn't write this to be a debbie downer. I wrote this for the next groups so that you can take our experience and make it better. There was not one person that came from the Demo party to GOS that had a good time. We tried and tried to do some fun things. This place is a hard nut to crack. We hope you do it.
    Like I have kept saying is please make it better, we like the price, we like location, we like the beach, we like the shilla bar area, and lastly the mass of towels on the chairs in the morning.
    But the email I have from management basically says they do not want partying or TTR type events.
    Take the info from us and help it make your trip epic.
    In the end the drinks, people and time away are a win.

    He was not calling you a Debbie downer. He was telling them to not get down about the bad reviews. Let's face it, Trip Advisor, Expedia, and others are full of bad reviews. I am looking forward to an unplugged vacation and am thrilled there will be a bunch of TTR exiles there at the same time. I agree that there must be more to the story to get thrown out, but even so, we'll take the advice. I need to relax and get away from work. The beach sounds perfect. I even sent away for some more conservative suits (to fit in) and at the same time, the hubs ordered more from MS. Smh

    I, for one, gotta' thank you for your review. It appeared, from the beginning, to be honest, sincere and with best intent. The fact you took the time/energy to give us even that much is something we, as Cancuncare members, should all respect on, reflect on, and use to our advantage to help us get our party on!
    Here's a toast to Gspot69, to Cancun itself, and to the never-gunna-grow-up as we grow older side in us all...!

    Thanks JimCarrie we posted it for the sole purpose and we've written many times that we would like this hotel to be what TTR is. You'll see that the space is awesome and underutilized. Please Hotties and Hellraisers and the groups after make it what it could be.
    It's my 1 or 2 weeks a year where we can be what ever we want. I mr get to be awesome on the dance floor In my own mind alcohol induced moves.
    The Mrs gets to be free and make friends and flirt. We don't want to be in bed by 1200 we can do that at home.

    We just got back and I agree with GSpot69. We went into it knowing that it would not be TTR. We had fun with our TTR friends, and that's what made the trip enjoyable. Some of the staff wanted to have fun, but as soon as management came by, they stiffened up. Don't waste your money on VIP! Hot tub was slower to fill than TTR and also cold. The VIP staff seemed like they were annoyed even if we asked for water. We could only get top shelf at VIP lounge which closed at 10:30. The beach and ocean were beautiful!!!! Way too many picture takers!!!! I do want to see how the HandH review the resort! I hope GOS is way more enjoyable for your group!!!!

    We think (Gspot69 & I) that the HnH should try to get some kind of agreement with the hotel to use the Shallibar pool: There is a bar which is supposed to open at 10am, but if you don't ask for it, it is not staffed. It is the best pool with beds, an area with hot tubs, there is a sound system. And actually there is a pool rule sign saying it is TOPLESS (not topless optional as other pools) and states the rules, including: "Don't take photos or videos of 3rd party without their agreement" Which I pointed to the management when they brought their crew to film the reality programme for the foam party. This part of the hotel is under used although It is the best: closest toilets closest bar, cool lounge chairs you can move around in the pool/water. It is only used by the hotel for 2 hours for the Foam party on Wednesday afternoon and 2 hours for the pool party on Friday afternoon.
    While coming to an agreement with the hotel management, also request strick NO PICS policy to be enforced.

    I agree with Dennis and Erika. We didn't upgrade and I think we had the same service. That being said, We still had a riot with our TTR friends, Girls were topless every day. Bar opens at 9:00 am at the beach. As Erika would say: Don't wait for the perfect moment, Make the mawment you have perfect.
