    We were there grand opening where the rules were less enforced. Will be back this weekend and have seen the many posts of hot tub and rooftop closing at 6. BUT have also read a few people say the rooftop is posted times of 12-midnight.

    Anyone have word on when the rooftop will remain open past 6?

    Thanks! Look forward to the 18th!!!

    I just asked the chat person on the website to get specifics on the pool hours and the hot tub. They said everything is 9-6 and the rooftop pool is 2-6.

    Clearly this is untrue and the person doesn't know what they are talking about. So I wrote an email to the main "contact us" box, just to see what they officially respond.

    If I remember correctly, maybe on the permanent signs they have up around hours were listed. Obviously for the soft opening, not all these signs were up, and weren't followed anyway. Now that everything is fully up and running(and even the rooftop had it's grand opening party) I am interested if they have posted signs that have hours on them, but then they are doing something different.

    This makes me think of the good suggestion someone had about a week ago to start a "Temptation Live" thread, and everyone who is there can post about what's the latest news at the resort.

    I think it's all about safety, security, and culpability. You can GUARANTEE if they allow late night stuff, someone will get drunk and either fall off the roof, drown, or something along that lines, bringing the resort bad publicity.

    Well technically speaking someone could get equally drunk and fall off the roof during the day. I think its simply they don't want to patrol up there at night, from the ground floor to the roof is a lot of ground to cover.

    Technically they could just come back and say they might open the bar but not the pool...probably don't have enough people to staff it yet (or just not seeing the demand for the bar).

    Having lived it at Hedo twice, I am going to go ahead and disagree with you on that assesement... This is such a strange policy, we seriously don't get it. Other resorts offer late night dips and it's a non issue so not sure why nobody thinks TTR could do the same thing...

    I'm talking about the rooftop pool. I agree, the sexy pool and hot tub should be open later.

    I think the reason that both those pools are not open later has to do with first their location. Well previous location, maybe not so much now for the Sexy pool... But they are integrated with the building that have the sleeping rooms. Those rooms, were, are not so sound proof and people in the pools late at night are usually a little drunk and louder so people would be always complaining about the noise. that would be true mostly about the Quite pool these days... the old Sports pool was great because is was away from most rooms... Now days with the refurb, the Sexy pool might warrant a new review because of the new building shape providing sound barriers.

    The second consideration they have is flat out people drowning. Drunk people tend to pass out and in water that's not such a good thing. sure they could station guards to make sure like they did at the old Sports pool, but you remember how much everyone loved being watched.. then there is the size of the new Sexy pool and how many guards would you need to cover all the nooks and crannies there.

    And lastly and probably the biggest reason and a big difference between TTR and Hedo, TTR frowns on sexy in the pool. We all know that if you open up the pools to late night swims people are going to want to have sex. So you put the guards in a constant state of confrontation trying to stop people all night, every night. So the easiest solution is to close the pools.

    Just my two cents on possible why they are closed at TTR where other places might leave them open.
