Hi folks - I just returned from a near perfect vacation (March 3-6) & thought I'd share the perspective of a single guy / solo traveler at Temptation. Warning - long boring post! So chronologically, more or less: I used USA Transfers to get a private ride from the airport - they were perfect - they communicated well via email in advance and executed as promised. $55 rt plus $5 tip each direction. Arrived early (noonish) - they had a room ready but it had a direct view of the road out front. I went back and said I'd be happy to wait for a quieter room - they suggested I grab lunch and come back in an hour, which I did. Got a very nice room overlooking the courtyard. Re comments about the bed - mine was perfect. I slept well, once I figured out that you could turn off the AC which was very noisy (the switch was next to the safe in my room). As suggested I brought a stack of $1 and $5 bills and distributed them generously, although in the end it probably amounted to only $50. The result was very attentive service, especially at the bars and with the housekeeper. Speaking of the bars - the first guy I met was Tiger at Diego's - what a character. A masking tape label on his visor, in large letters, says "I don't speak English". I got my first drink, shook his hand and gave him a $5, and never had an empty drink again - he relentlessly dropped another drink in front of me every time I got close to finishing one, which helped with my strategy of spending 4 days doing my best Charlie Sheen impersonation. It will be several days before I fully detox from this trip! Oh, btw, don't take his visor label literally. At first I wanted to tear off the piece of tape that said "English" because I didn't hear him speak AT ALL the first day. Then I watched him interact with regulars and realized that a)he DID speak; b)in perfect English; and c)could sing along with every song, knowing all the lyrics. Really quite a guy! I hate to say anything negative but the food wasn't great, although I should point out that I only ate at the buffet. Breakfast was best, and the wait for omelets wasn't bad at all - well worth it. And hamburgers at midnight can only be great! Housekeeping replenished my bottled water in the room generously (see tipping above!) I found the ritual of reserving a sexy-pool-side chair a little silly but complied since I was up early. My typical day was to reserve a chair by 7, go for a long (6 mile) walk (exit hotel, turn left, nice walking path with distances marked), return for breakfast, sit by pool, play beach volleyball 11-1 ish, sit by pool, lunch, sit by pool, volleyball 3-5 ish, sit IN pool and start drinking at the swim up bar, nap, dinner, evening activity. I met a lot of great people but mostly couples - I didn't meet a lot of singles of either gender, and I think I gave it a pretty good effort. It was a bit uncomfortable - I don't think I'll go on vacation alone again - but there were definitely some high points. The couples I met were very friendly and tried to make single connections for me as best as they could. One funny / revealing story: I was chatting with a very attractive, very topless (OK, I guess there aren't degress of toplessness!) young woman at the swim up bar, and she was being very physical and flirty. Suddenly people who thought we were a couple were approaching and initiating very sexy and graphic conversations, which was a lot of fun. Of course when they asked how long we had been together and we answered "15 minutes", they swam off. Areas for improvement: wish they had an english-language newspaper available at the gift shop (although Friday one appeared in my room - maybe they just don't do it on weekends?) and I wish the coffee had been better. Ok, and maybe fresh squeezed juices? And some single-oriented activity where we could figure out who the other singles were? I never tried one of the off-site nightclub trips ... the evening activity on-site was fun enough for me, although next time I'll check out the off-site clubs. On Friday night, what should have been a great party was impacted by some pretty heavy rain, although there were still people boogeying at PatyO's! And heads -up guys - I tried to attend the lingerie event Thursday night and was rejected because I had pajama bottoms rather than boxers. No big deal. Cost - I thought I got a really good deal until I spoke with some folks who did one of those deals where they had to sit through the time-share pitch in exchange for a killer rate. Holy crap - you can save a LOT that way - shop around! Bottom line - I'll be back either with a girl or with some buddies.
