    Ok....... I think mayber your winning so far...... but..... We love to take long walks on the beach and the beach and the walk towards town on the beach is not that great... in fact it sucks..... I'm guessing long walks on the GP beach and adjoining beaches are much better. We like to do 3 to 4 mile every morning after breakfast... ( so we don't feel guilty drinking all day) and at Temptation we had to do it out front on the sidewalk. And we will admit that it wasn't that bad... lots of iguanas to admire along the way....... but your still sucking down vehicle exchaust fumes all along the way..... we never did make it all the way to town but I think we got close...... Another thing that bugs us at Tempation is the full court press on joining the ( premier) group so you get " perks " while at the resort.....it's sad to hear from people who has joined it ( for thousands) and then trying to figure out how to pay for it later... They get you drunk and then pressure you......not cool. But we will admit it is a nice resort it just needs more nightly things to do...... ( back to you ) :)

    If you like to walk on the beach GP is your place. You can walk on awsome white fine sand as far as the eye can see. My wife enjoyed that and would take walks everyday because it was so nice.
    We own a time share out in Vegas and trust us when we say we know about the strong arm sales that some of the resorts do. I don't know if you have been strong armed at GP but they do that also to get you packages at their Golden and Grand resorts.
    Just say NO and continue your vacation, they go away after a while.

    Ahh the beach sounds nice.... and your wife walked it alone? My wife would not feel comfortable walking it alone at Temptation. It get's a bit iffy further on down the beach. We have been pressured in Vegas for time shares. ( Flamingo Hilton) They do put on the pressure when you say no...as they do at Temptation. It's a little troublesome that they try to make 2 different class of guests. For example we were lounging in the quiet pool at Temptation next to a small group of nice people. When there beer glass's were empty someone would show up with a different brand of beer and fill their glass where ever they were.....They would tell us oh yeah this beer is much better than the resort beer. We would just mumble to ourselves wonder how many thousands that beer cost them...and then we would stroll across the pool and get our fresh drink....ahh exercise and $ savings.......

    Very safe! Yes she walked alone. The beach in the GP area is very safe and has a ton of top notch resorts and their staff taking care of them, the resorts actually rake the sea weed that washed up over night and dig a whole and hide it.
    We drink rum and diet and always have well rum when we go out so we will be unaffected by the contrast. Premium is over rated.

    One of our favorite sports....... get down to the beach early and watch the guys raking the seaweed.....always wished I had it back at home, would make a good compost pile. Surprised they don't compost it themselves for the beautiful gardens alot of resorts have. We found a good rum at Temptation last year... I think it was called anos something.....found it our last day at the resort so drank as many dt.coke and rums as we could.

    Do they play music by the pool during the day, and if so, what style of music do they normally play?

    They have a dj or ipod that plays lots of Mexican salsa stuff (like in a Mexican resturant) mixed with 80 90's rock when we were there. Not a lot of techno like at Temptations. They may let you plug your Ipod in but we never asked, music did not seam a priority for them.

    They let you plug your ipod in at the tiki bar. Some of the best times we had were hanging out at the tiki bar, listening to music and talking with people late in the afternoon after a full day at the beach/pool.
