Trip report Nov 30th to Dec 7th About us: middle class F38 M41, two kids and fairly easy going. We travelled with a small group of close friends and it was our 6th trip to TTR. In short: if you liked TTR before, you will also love it now, just go. By subject in order of importance to us: Atmosphere at the pool: somewhat tamer. Ents where not letting anyone get out of the pool naked, even for games (ok, maybe just for a few seconds but we’ve seen people doing full competitions naked in the past). Also no body shots on the bar allowed. Beside our group, we did not see anyone else doing shots but we did corrupted some the others around. Overall we really had a great time by the pool because of all the great people we have met (our small group was growing as the week went by!). The pool really is too deep and there is too much lounging chairs in the water. The result is that there is not really a spot near the bar were to hang out as a group. We fixed that by pushing away some chairs but at some point that wasn’t enough. Bash and theme nights: participation was great, not many people were not participating at least in some way. Shows were ok and the best one was the neon show in our opinion. The dance floor was ok for us to dance on but we are sure most of the crowd were just not willing to go dance up there in front of everybody. It should still stay there for the shows but another area should be made available for dancing. And that place is where the premiers seats are now: seriously those HAVE to go at least on the bar side. Its ridiculous. And one last thing: the DJ has emptied the dance floor more than a few times: his choice of mixing is really weird. It kind of gets better after midnight so maybe he his just trying too hard please everyone before that. Service: just wow. Even better than before (aside for a few exceptions like in every resorts). Seriously service was 5* to us. The resort and the rooms were kept very clean all the time. Ents are very good and funny. Food: wow again. The buffet did not improve by much but restaurants are now even better. The SHE was out of this world, one if not the best restaurant we have even been in the Caribbean. But if you like quantity over quality this restaurant might not be for your taste (pun fully intentional ). Renovations: the entrance lobby is much improved. The view of the Bash area with the ocean in the back is stunning when compared to what is was before. As for the new general style of resort it is just not our taste. We get what they tried to do but we feel that they missed it. We felt like in a 80’s version of Las Vegas and not in the Caribbean and this shows especially in the rooms. It should absolutely not prevent you to go to TTR but we just didn’t like the style. It has been said before but all seating should be replaced: everything you sit on is highly uncomfortable (except on your partner that is ). Oh and one thing about the quality of the renos. If you liked the old “raunchy” feeling of TTR do not worry: it’s gonna come down to that level again in just a few years. Management respected their deadline but it shows that the renos have been done very quickly. The bars are now much improved. They are bigger and it is no longer a struggle to get a drink. Nicely done. Overall TTR must have done something right because our vacation was awesome. We will be back for sure and that includes the BC. Cheers!
