    We arrived at Temptation on May 14th and stayed for 5 days. This trip marked our 5th trip and our days took the same shape as in past trips.


    Check in was quick – a quick “no thanks!” allowed us to dodge the time share pitch. Interesting twist though, they did say it wasn’t a time share pitch but was a program for “repeaters.” Still, no thanks! We were offered to go to Desire for two days, but we declined. Lunch and room was ready by 2:30 as promised. We booked a Jacuzzi room and loved it. We used that Jacuzzi each and every night.



    Each day we had breakfast at the buffet and got to the pool by 10. We never had a problem getting a chair. Drinks, shots, shots, shots, shots, … more drinks…. You know how it goes. Back to the room for “naps” around 5, dinner by 8, Patty Os by 930! We did not mind the music loop and it became a joke by the end of our stay – we could nearly predict what the next song would be.



    The weather did not cooperate during our trip but who cares! We met so many great people and our cheeks hurt from smiling so much.



    Comparing our first trip to this one, what I CAN say is that TTR is consistent. Yes, the room is a bit musty but it is always clean. No, I won’t drink the tap water even though it says “potable.” The food is fine and lord knows we don’t go hungry. But, do we come for the food and the rooms? NOPE – we come for the people, the vibe and the party. We attended our first ever foam party (OMG!); met cute boys from Canada and sexy girls from Texas and crazy couples from the UK. We met a rocker baker and day care provider from Maine. (we love you B&J) We danced in the rain until our feet hurt. I got a little too competitive in water polo and saw more of “Tennessee” than I ever thought I would. Loved seeing the Mayor and his lovely wife.



    2016 – we will be back! (Unless Jamie convinces us to come for a quick trip in May 2015)


    Thanks everyone. You made our trip awesome!

    Great report - Desire offer, would there have been an upcharge? When we arrived in Feb they were overbooked and asked the same of us, we declined since Desire looked to be a $1k + over TTR.

    No upcharge at all. They called it a "promotion" and said they would even pay for transfers to and from.

    From what has been posted on here, transfer because of overbooking is free of additional charge.

    Looking through trip reviews the one thing you can say is that 99 percent of folks love the place. After all what's not to like.
