I will start with the same general info as the first trip report you can find last year report here : http://www.cancuncare.com/forum/temptation-resort-cancun/14029-need-temptation-coach-es.html We arrived at Temptation in the afternoon on December 9 for 10 nights. If anyone was there at the same time I’d guess the best way to describe us is we we’re dancing, like always ! The checking was quite easy. Citlali recognized me right away (our 3rd trip). We we’re suppose to have the first night in a Jacuzzi room (like our first trip) and 9 nights in a garden room (like the second trip last may for which there is no report). We we’re quite happy with our package. That being said, before leaving, monetary speaking, things turned for the best, and we decided to offer ourselves an upgrade. Quick comment about the upgrade. I did my research on the internet and with the help of Citlali, we book for a 7 day drops of love and we we’re in a Temptation suite for the whole 10 days. In suite 1201,The ocean view was fantastic and we could even see it from our large window door, lying in our bed. The upgrade, included a romantic dinner (lobster) by the beach (we had ours in our room, with as great a service, because it was way too cold outside, overall in term of weather, we had 7 nice days and 3 colder with not much sun). It also included a bath of rose’s, a massage, daily artistic chocolate dessert, and a concierge service. Is it worth the price ? Money doesn’t have the same value for everyone. But in term of Temptation$ I would say this. If the question was would you rather have 2 weeks or even 10 days in a garden room or 7 in the drop of loves, I like Temptation that much that I’d rather be there longer wherever I stay. But if it doesn’t change the time you’ll be there and the extra $ won’t hurt your finance that much go for it. It just make paradise still a little better ! Back to the hotel itself. The first stop after our room was to the buffet. Lucio recognize us right away. Either with Lucio, Martial, Javier, Victor, etc… we had again a great service at all time. Actually the service was better than excellent everywhere. Israël at Paty’o was particularly helpful and went out of his way, either serving me a Burger when Santos was absent or bringing me paper towels when I did not asked for it. That being said, while the service is always excellent, you can help yourself get the little extra. Tipping is always a good start (you have enough money to go to Temptation for 7 days, they need to work there for 6, do the math, that couple of bucks won’t kill you). The second trick is more complicated but probably as useful. Talk to them and as much as possible speak a little Spanish. On that point since my girlfriend speak Spanish and I personally started learning 3 months ago (method call assimil, disc and book) we we’re able to talk to them, Israël, Martial, Jose (I eat with him by myself at a lunch and he was quite happy to help me with my Spanish), that also help make the trip more fantastic, we felt like a king and a queen, surrounded by friends, at all time. After that first visit at the buffet, home sweet home, Temptation was like when we left it. First night, Lingerie night (we have two of them during the 10 days . New rule, you have to be in lingerie or pj’s to get in (I loved it) and no picture (even better). Women dress as they want and men in shorts no shirt. Men could not get in with string or short too thight, but you could change later and get in unnoticed. I saw only one asshole trying to sneak in to take pictures later on at night, I went from the dance floor right in his face at the door (not sure my feet touched the floor during the travel), telling him nicely but firmly that picture we’re not allowed there. For the rest, In general the days and nights activities, looked the same I remembered them. We we’re always dancing, at Paty’o, in nice shoes, at the pool on DJ days but also any other day anyway. Around the pool we made a lot of dancing friend. People stopped by for a little move or stick there to dance with us. We we’re not part of « a group » but always had people dancing and having fun with us. The only part not as agreeable was a guy trying to « dance » (he was hammered) with us and especially with the girlfriend. My girlfriend knows how to handle those guys but it could make some ladies uncomfortable. On that point, there seems to be way more single guys than girls, and with too high expectation in terms of sex activities. According to a couple of single guys there, you could not really talk to a single girl more then a couple of minute without a bunch of other guys coming over for no reason. There was also a guy who left his girlfriend to « talk with mine » , to « protect her» from being harassed (was funny considering they did not speak the same language). Don’t get me wrong, I have no problem with singles, most are ok. I think the problem is probably group of singles booking together. Not only those makes the men-women ratio too high, but at some time, later at night, those groups kind of « took control » of Paty’o and I did not feel as much as home as I use to at Temptation. For newbies make sure you understand it’s not a sex safary (I would even say that for single guy, your chances are not any better than at any other resort elsewhere), but the little sexual feeling floating around make it exquisite when you fit in. Like every time at Temptation, we came back thinking, that was the best trip ever !
