    We are curious too! Are they building or buying an exiting resort. If building, does anyone know if it has started? Is there going to be a Desire next door, as rumored.
    We would love this location. I have no expectations that a new Temptation would be as good as Cancun. It would be nice to have a different lay of the land.

    This is the reason we decided to become members last year. Can't wait for it. But there isn't a lot of talk about the progress.

    @basser - the fact that there will be a DR location is not a hoax - it is just that the link to the website above is to a fake site. The DR site is due to open in late 2019 or early 2020.

    It depends on who you ask from Premier as to the progress of the resort. I have heard everything from it's going great to they haven't even bought property for the building yet.

    Good to see they are continuing with the theme of design over function (sarcasm) ....

    Tree in the middle of the pool
    Chairs that look like tanks
    Walls that may look like a wall but surprise if you push in the right spot it is a closet!
    Colors that give you headaches
    Lights dangling from the sky in odd places that also give you headaches after running into them
    And so on

    Oh and looks like he came up with a new one...

    Beds that actually float on air! Until we have sex in them and make them break off the wall :)

    If they aren't actively promoting it, you know it isn't close.

    Didn't think that you Americans got sarcasm. You continue to impress us Kyle. So, you're saying maybe we should not book our dr flights just yet??

    Based on the long history of TTR, and the length of service of the staff there (which really was illuminated when the reno took place and they got an infusion of new blood who had no clue what they were doing, TTR-style) I would doubt very much that the vibe and energy of a new location for TTR, in the DR, in Miami, or wherever, would be anything as much fun as Temptation~Cancun. Not for at least a couple years, I'd say. Complete new population of employees.... and to be up front, "island-time" and the working attitude of the Mexican people do NOT seem the same.

    Only thing I heard this week while down there was that they were currently looking at 2020, but I assume that was just a sales pitch to push upgrading.

    Either way, I'm anxious to hear real news. The ONLY negative for temptations for us is the incredibly lack luster beach. The chance to alleviate that while having the same atmosphere everywhere else would be extremely attractive
