    We stopped taking pics of everything on our 3rd sun destination vacation. Typically we now take a couple of pics when in town and a few of us in pretty back drops around the area we are in. When we go on vacation, the phones stay in the room. We are on vacation!

    Honestly cameras/phones out around the resort means the top goes back on for the rest of the trip. I do not want any photos of me/us in the background on the internet.

    The no photography rule is about being courteous to the other guests.

    as you can see from some other peoples comments that is irrelevant to them. (i'm betting they are the same people who save seats and beg for more EDM at the pool :p)...they gotta have pics to document every moment and encounter on their vacation. (even that makes no sense to me...why?)
    there are unlimited opportunities to take pics that don't involve the Sexy pool or Bash or making other people FEEL inhibited....just do that.
    a lot of people just don't understand the power that prudish, virtue signalling and religious people back home have. all it takes is an anti-sex religious frump or 3rd wave feminist to find the right compromising picture of you....even just the innocent, yet decodent, fun we all have at TTR :)......and a LOT of people would be up shit creek.
    AND if you want to see the results of allowing cameras at the 'sexy pool' just look at Breathless....they are all about pics and social media shit....and you'll be lucky to find a handful of women who will be topless at their 'sexy pool"

    We would hit all the pools/ocean early in the mornings and took our pictures with no problems.... There might be a few people who were out, but not many , so plenty of spots for her to pose, without imposing on anyone else's privacy ....

    At far end of the pool during the foam party, my partner attempted to take a picture of one of our friends, nobody else in the shot, no boobs on display....security came over and a firm 'no pictures'. Same deal up at the Sky Bar (not me this time but somebody else trying to take a picture of the ocean on their phone) and saw it happen at Bash as well. If security aren't around, it's fine. None of the other staff cares. If security so much as see you pointing a camera or phone, they will ask you to stop.

    I don't know how you do your vacations, but we don't just go stroll the beach and that's the cvacation, that's the thing. Pictures are there to relive the memories, to bring back fresh details you've forgotten, etc. We really like our crazy party time pics we've taken at TTR.

    People abuse it, like the guys (I assume they were guys, I suppose that's a weird sexist thing I just did, eh?) taking pics from across the bar of girls dancing on the bar, topless, bottomless, whatever. That's not cool.

    But, if Stacia was up there having a grand old time with one or seven of her newest BFF and everyone's into the party-pic mode, tthen, hell yes I want those pics.

    And, most of you guys are missing my point. I didn't ask you if you thought the no-camera policy would be a good thing vs bad thing, I asked if there really is an official one, other than the one at the Sexy Pool about no pics during the contests. Not trying to get another debate going, just trying to find out if anyone has a line on the official word, yet.

    Actually Trish, I would care. Even if security isn’t around you shouldn’t be taking pics in the resort, who knows what you are getting in the background. It is courteous to the other guests to follow the rule.

    Well ok. So back to the original question. Is there a new rule about no cameras period at TTR? As most know the only rule at the old TTR was not during games or competitions. But there wasn’t a no camera rule. And to be honest John I am not sure if there is a no camera rule at the new TTR.

    Now the opinion stuff. We were on the side of no cameras period at the old ttr as we had some bad experiences with creepers while just sitting in chairs pool side and during games too where I had to throw a camera in the ocean once :) and even ended up on a porn site after on a boobs cruise receiving a double well you get the idea. But we also knew there wasn’t a rule against them period and agree the majority could take pics of their fun while ALSO being courteous to others. Dont believe taking pics and being courteous are necessarily mutually exclusive. But sadly there were bad apples and wish the staff did more to prevent.

    With our two trips to the new ttr we were not stopped from taking pics but our pics were mostly of couples before dinner, us hanging out and some good old fashioned sex on the balcony (ha just kidding on the last one). So it sure didn’t feel like a no camera policy. But we did see them stopping people crossing the line...no taking pics during games or of others at Bash. So I am hopeful the same rules still exist but maybe they are just enforcing them more?

    From the website faq

    FAQ's | Temptation Cancun Resort

    "Keeping the identity of our guests’ private is extremely important to us, due to the unique concept of our resort. For this reason, we ask that you refrain from taking photos/video around the sexy pool, as well as stipulated theme nights, due to spicy content. Feel free to enjoy doing so in all other areas of our spectacular resort. Be sure and capture your favorite Temptation Cancun Resort moments at designated photo hotspots around the property."

    You’re right the debate is over because you’re gonna do what you want anyways. I already thought sunchasers has ended this debate twice already, once with the hotel policy and once by saying if she sees cameras she is putting her top on. If one girl already thinks that in the small pool we are swimming in here, it won’t be long before you have the resort to yourself with lots of girls with tops on then you can take all the pics you want. We have been to TTR 6 times, we go there and live the memories and we both can remember them we don’t need a pic, I
    Was there. when we are home we are
    Making more awesome memories that we can remember. If I can’t remember for some reason, I know we will be back in a few months to do it over again.

    Ok so the rule is not a ban. Not allowed at the sexy pool or ‘stipulated theme nights’. Similar to old TTR. Just being better enforced.

    Like I said I am not for cameras but to say they are not allowed or the debate is over is going too far. Clearly some of this is subjective.

    I've had lots of people ask to take pictures with me based on theme clothing...I'm picky, some nights I won't because I'm not wearing much and I don't know them. Some nights I do. But I see pictures getting taken around the pool and I lose it. I don't mind if it's a small group or a couple taking 1 shot, but it's obvious when its more. I ran into these three spanish "kids" and they were sitting at the pool bar filming in November. Had Pedro (new ent staff if you don't know him) call them out. I think you just need to use common sense. Not everyone is worried about their reputation or personal life, but many are. I love to have fun at TTR but not at the cost of anyone's life when they return home....and for that I'll just keep coming back and make new memories.

    I do take pictures of our group. It is great to remember all the hangover type moments. If people don't like their pictures taken then move away. If by chance someone is caught in the background I Photoshop it by blurring the faces and nudity spots. No nudity pictures will ever be posted to social media. I share the pictures within our group via personal message or email which they all appreciate. Never had a problem. It's also my Vacation and I am allowed to take pictures, I show courtesy and ask permission from whoever is in the photo area.

    to all newbies....please understand rude people like this couple (and their 'group') are not the norm. It looks like the first week in May may be a good time to avoid.

    I do the same too ,, so I guess I,m rude too . I am constantly asked for photos that I have taken and love to share them. I make sure they are all appropriate . A lot are group shots , selfies and scenic.
