    Temptation has a parking lot at the hotel that you can use free of charge.

    These are two shows, that have new names now, that are very interesting to watch and maybe participate in. You'll see what I mean when you go. They work lalong the theme of the hotel and you just need to go at least once. If you're going to TTR you won't want to miss them.

    Hey Jaime,

    I don't suppose you know what time they allow swimming in the pools in the morning? I figure I can skip packing workout clothes and just do some laps in the morning to work off the prior nights fun.

    Thanks,
    Joel

    I think its 9 but the pools are kind of shallow and small for swimming,
    they do have a small gym upstairs behind the sports pool.

    They finishing vacuming the pools about 8:30 -9 AM each morning. The Sports pool is about a 25 meter pool that you could swim laps in...

    Hey Jaime,

    One more question, is smoking allowed anywhere on the property? in the rooms? by the pool? at PatyO's?

    Thanks,
    Joel n Heather

    Yes..... smoking is allowed everywhere outside. You are only supposed to smoke on your balconies but I haven't heard of anyone getting in trouble smoking in their rooms.

    Now, as a former 34 year smoker.. I would ask that you be considerate of those around you at the pools and in PadyO's. I promised that when I quit I wouldn't become a fanatic and tell everyone that they had to quit smoking. I hated those when I was smoking. But even when I was smoking I tried to be considerate.

    We don't smoke cigarettes, we sometimes like to smoke a houka. We thought it would be fun to bring down and hang out next to the pool and enjoy. Although if we are bugging others we will certainly extinguish the coals and put it away.

    usually it's a fun thing and like a water cooler people tend to congregate around it and socialize. Good ice breaker if you will. But, again, if we are bothering others we WILL put it away.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    I could see a houka being a hit at PadyO's at night. :)

    TTR also has a Cigar Bar that they sometimes open that provide houka for people to use. Haven't seen them drag them out to PadyO's though. So that would be different. Who knows.. if you make it a hit maybe TTR management might bring them out in the future.

    Hadn't ever thought about them around the pool... don't know how they would go over there.

    Sounds like it may be too hot to use near the pool during the day. But a fun little toy at PadyO's in the night when things have cooled off.

    Just to answer your lingering question, No, we only smoke tabacco in this houka.

    That's a good question, 'cause we never did find it when we were there a couple weeks ago . . . It wasn't where the resort map said it should be, anyway. We just didn't care enough to ask anyone.

    It was there last June. It is among the 5xxx blocks. It is an open air area with a small bar that is closed and a few tables and chairs.

    I think the best way to find it would be to come into the hotel from the main entrance and take a left past reception and exit through the doors. It is between the blocks of buildings up some stairs

    It would probably be a nice area if it were open and had a few people up there. I don't smoke but I would take time out for a cigar and a change of scenerey once in a while!

    It's a beautiful quite bar that for some reason they never seem to open much.

    For the old timers, it's where the theater used to be. For new timers follow the directions above, and as you come out of the lobby sort of hug the wall. You go up and down the stairs and, if you keep next to the wall on your left, you will see a stairway on the left about 30 yards down. It's at the top of those stairs.
