    Not to change the subject of immediate fun trips to TTR Cancun, but was wondering if anyone has had an update on the new resort in the D.R. ? Since my wife asked and we havnt heard since our premier meeting last year.

    If it happens, we will definitely check it out, however, I think they will have a difficult time finding a quality staff there that understands hospitality. Our experience is that the culture of customer service in Cancun if far superior to that in the DR. Friendly service is difficult to find there, at least in our experiences.

    Totally agree! We did PC at the Excellence a few years ago and found that the service in Mexico was better. Plus some other issues with DR. But, we’d probably check it out just so people stop asking us why we like Cancun so much.

    Without them showing pictures or really even promoting the D.R.TTR that much, I feel like it is way further away then beginning of 2019.

    I would probably try it out, just so we can go somewhere different for a change. But it would have to be with a group. I would hate to show up and it be boring, and I would have wasted a trip to the regular TTR. I feel like that point is really where they are going to struggle to get Temptation regulars to make a change.

    We will certainly skip this until it gets traction. Biggest worry is the splitting of the TTR party crowd.

    We don't go to Temptation now because it's in Mexico (or Dominican Republic). We go there because it's where the party is at.

    Also, it's a longer, more expensive flight.

    Too bad they didn't decide to rebuild in Cabo San Lucas, as the weather is great in Cabo all year round (perhaps a little cool in Dec/Jan for pool time depending on how soft you are), almost NIL rain or hurricane issues.

    True and for us Western folks the flight is easier/ shorter so more time at TTR

    That is exactly what we told them at premier member closing (contract closing person). We asked what happended to all the memberships you sold for cabo and then left them hi and dry??? They told us its on the radar after DR. So we told them we think Cabo is a better and safer bet from the USA and canadian west population..

    We could consider a petition of some sort to get Cabo on the Radar.. we would not be surprised if TTR DR is not actually happening.. We loved Cabo TTR better than anything weve experienced in Cancun, even the new TTR. It was that good. :)

    Well, for my own purely selfish reasons (flights are shorter and cheaper to Cabo), I would def support resurrecting Cabo TTR. Would be an easier trip for all the Alberta people too (who always seem to be 10% of the TTR Cancun population at any given time). DR is a long way from the West Coast...I can't see me choosing to go there when there is a perfectly good new TTR in Cancun. It seems to me that DR and Cancun would be serving the same market, unless TTR is specifically wanting to draw the South American market. I like the fact that I would have so many more choices of time of year to go weather-wise in Cabo, as my father says to me: "you operate in a very narrow band of temperature" :D

    The massive roof top hot tub and bar was epic. I bet you could get 100 people in there. and it was open til late...the resort actually had some of the night time parties up there. The resort itself was a little too small for my taste (not enough restaurant choices), and the pool was also quite small, but it had a nice beach area and was huge fun. Because TTR people tend to stay on the resort the whole trip, they could build it between the two major cities and presumably get the land cheaper than in the resort areas grouped around each city.

    I will stir the pot at the premier pitch I have to attend in April (I am staying on referral this time).

    We would love to see TTR Cabo resurrected. Cabo is a much faster and cheaper flight for those of us on the west coast and northwest (Seattle).

    We loved TTR Cabo it was where we first got hooked on TTR in 2009. Plus we live in San Francisco it was an easy flight for us. Much smaller resort but that was also part of the charm of the place after a few days you knew everyone. Fingers crossed TTR Cabo makes a come back!

    We're also from Vancouver and our first two trips were to Temtpation Cabo, and then Desire. It was perfect. We had no Desire to go all the way to Cancun. We've actually drove to Cabo a few times and stopped there on one of the road trips.
