    The drinks definitely didn't seem to be full strength, but as most have said it is not that big of a deal as it allows me to drink longer. I have always just been a fast drinker, regardless if it is soda, water, beer, liquor, whatever. If you just want a stronger drink ask the bartender to make a double, they will be happy to oblige, or as others have said bring in your own. Last year we went to Cabo and I got some Jack just for variety. That also made a couple of new friends at the bar as they were Jack drinkers as well.

    Why do you think people may have gotten sick?

    Drinks - Totally watered down

    Beer drinkers need not worry...

    Cans in room provided --- hard to water that down, as is beer seen poured from a keg...

    There are days that I don't get buzzed from drinking all day and there are others that become fuzzy pretty early on. I always stay with the better booze and those results are more predictable

    As to the vino, we found the house red drinkable if it is served in wine glass like you get in the Italian or Asian, and absolutely awful in one of the plastic cups they use at the bar. We have become winos and will probably bring our own glasses for our next trip. Much easier than stealing ones from one of the restaurants. About one glass of the house white is about all I can take.

    Personally, I'm not sure where the "watered down" drink comments are coming from. You watch the bartenders make the drinks... and I've watched them (many times) open brand new bottles of liquor (i.e. Bacardi) and immediately start pouring into my cup. Where in that process could the drinks be watered down? If you want your drinks stronger, just ask for a double. The bartenders are always happy to oblige... :)

    Thanks for the TR, nice to see that you can say how you feel and not get slammed. We've been I think 7 times and nothing you said sounded out of the ordinary we go because of the people and the sunshine can't get any better than that, and we are heading back in April hope to see you there April 12-22nd at TTR

    Way to Represent the April group Keith..lol.
    Im pretty stumped on the "watered down" drinks thing still though, man that would be one hell of an undertaking with that many people drinking that fast... Im a Bacardi/coke and beer drinker, ive never had a problem with drinks. Then again, if its cold and unlimited, im a pretty happy camper no matter what :)

    I cannot stomach the wine at this resort, especially outside of the Italian, Asian, and Seafood restaurants. The bubbly was sweet, but gave a good buzz! At night, my drink of choice was a vodka with soda water and lime. Hydrate while you dehydrate...makes for an easier morning! ;-)
