    We will be going in Oct. 2012 for the first time. I was starting to be concern after reading some many negative reviews, but than my hubby pointed something funny out to me. He said when you read a negative review and yet still they rate each section 4's and 5's its hard to take some of them seriously.
    But we got lucky in finding CANCUNCARE site which gives newbies a much better or atleast more creditable review. For that thank everyone again who contribute to the form.

    Those negative reviews are by the few snobby, boring, uptight people that visit TTR...go back to your 5 star boring pool, no nightlife, rude staff hotel and dont come back...sorry so mean but if u cant have fun and enjoy Temptation then go home.. we'll be there feb 22-29th and will love every minute of it

    I seriously cannot believe some people say that the staff are rude! I've never stayed anywhere with more attentive and friendly staff! Also as to being expensive, TTR was the cheapest adult-only resort we could find, and by a significant amount too.

    Every trip advisor review that gives either 1 or 5 stars shouldn't be taken as accurate. I bet a lot of them are published by people hired to make fake claims of somewhere being totally brilliant or pants. Also you have to see what other resorts that person has reviewed, and chances are a majority of their reviews will be negative.

    I would take trip advisor with a grain of salt. It seems to be full of miserable people who led miserable lives. These people will always find something in the world to complain about.
    I have been to several places that people in trip advisor complain about and have had a great time.. And needless to say did not agree with unhappy crew of trip advisors.
    Those of us on this sight are Confirmed Alumni of TTR.

    WE LOVE TTR

    i was just reminded that our first 3 day trip to what was then BBG was horrible.

    Jamie hated the rooms(no tub) , hated the food, the power in the room went out and blew her hair dryer to shit (i personally think it was the other way around) and at the time she had full hair down to her ass. (try drying that with a flat iron, thank god for 24hr walmart :huepfen013:)
    we went back again at a different time after staying at the Hyatt a couple times(snooze fest ZZZZZZ) and havnt been anywhere else since looking at trip # 16 this may

    The first time we went it was still BBG and it was the December after Wilma. Even though the resort was only half as good as it is now we still had a fantastic time. We were afraid to leave the sexy pool as we didn't want to miss a moment. We knew from day 2 that we would be back and it would be for 2 weeks at a time.

    Good or bad, TTR is the cheapest adult resort and to be honest it can't be as bad as Hedo 3. For the price I paid in Jamaica I was pissed. Breakfast was a joke, the room was half ass, I had to go to the sister hotel down the street for some really good food. Only one bar had top self liquor for a few hours of the day.

    I'm taking my chances at Temptation to see with my own eyes...

    Our first time was at Christmas that same year.. We've been back every year since, twice last year. We've checked out a couple other places since but nothing we've found compares. And like you guys 1 week wasn't enough, we spent a day trying to extend our trip..LOL lesson learned..

    I have to tell you this after being a well seasoned traveler of nearly 25 years. I woulod not give you 10 cents for the reviews I see on Trip Advisor. How is it possible that one person gives a place 1 star while the next person gives it 5 stars ? What it boils down to is this. Opinions are like a**holes...we have one. Listen to you friends that have gone....or better yet go yourself and make up your mind. We have been to many real five star resorts and they were great...BUT we have been to TTR as well. It may get a 3.5 star for the property but it gets a 5 star for fun, adventure, good times and fun. Maybe that is why we vist TTR every year (twice) and Secrets only ever other year ( mainly for their spa ).

    You summed it up better (and with many less words) than me.

    I don't mind TA for people who actually put their experience, but I'd rather not read someone's jaded opinion.

    By the way - for a good read, search TA for "Earthquake the ride" in Gatlinberg TN. If you've ever been there, and had the good fortune to try this "ride" out - you'll be pissing yourself when you read it.

    We're counting weeks right now because the days just seem WAY too long. Even got my nerd out and made a Windows 7 "Temptations" Theme pack for the desktop.

    Naked Elevator Roulette?????!!!!! Please explain--I want to play!

    As for TA, I've noticed a lot of bad reviews come from one-time posters.

    I tend to believe reviews from posters who've submitted numerous reviews and have stayed in a variety of places--they have better perspective.

    I discount anyone who just mentions sweeping generalities ("the food was bad"...really? Every morsel?) or who talks about things the hotel couldn't control (loved the recent one that ranted about timeshare sharks...at the AIRPORT and the OCEAN temperature...as if TTR should fix those!)

    Best thing to do is write your own truthful trip report. I use tripadvisor alot, but I discount the reviews from people that seem too fussy. I think they contain lots of valuable info, you just have to read lots of reviews to find it.

    We just got back from TTR and my tripadvisor review went up a few days after we got back. We loved the resort, are so glad we went and chose to ignore the bad review. We will be back!

    If you go to TTR and do not have a good time, you have no one to blame except yourself! It is just that simple!
