    I know it's been a week since our return but I'm finally feeling well enough to write a review.

    As Donald mentioned before there were several people suffering the same sort of issues with cough, chills and upper respiratory symptoms. I got hit with it on the 3rd day and Ali got it about 2 days later.

    Although it did put a damper on some of the activities I have to say there's no place I'd rather be sick at. We had several friends inquiring about our well being and making sure we were OK. Until you've experienced the community that is TTR you really can't appreciate it.

    We finally got to experience a Boobs Cruise and while it wasn't full and probably one of the tamest of the month it was still fun and probably better for me as I felt like crap. I must apologize to anyone on that cruise who thought I wasn't into it but the bug was kicking my ass that day. Many thanks to Steve, Janet, Chinos and Omar for the amazing job they do on these. Chinos got me to laugh many times when I really needed it.

    We met many friends, old and new, as usual and even though we were under the weather we had a fantastic time.

    It was an interesting trip from the perspective that we got to see a little different side of the place. We partied a lot less into the wee hours and spent more time on the beach than our past trips combined but it allowed us to see that if that's the type of trip you are looking for (or need) it can be found at TTR, and enjoyed.

    Many thanks to everyone who made our trip memorable. We'll see many of you at the Stampede BBQ in July here in Calgary I'm sure :)

    Oh no! You too? We are staying at Pearl next week and are almost afraid to visit Temptation now for a day (were planning to on the 12th) if there is something going around being passed from visitor to visitor. I know there is speculation about the vents but I lean towards good old fashion germs just being passed along with everyone in close proximity partying together.

    Thank you for the post. I love reading trip reviews.

    For those of you afraid of the illness rumors. Yes many have reported there was a bug running around. Most often these get spread between friends based on close proximity. I was there the exact same dates and did not hear of a single person with any problems. I was on the other side of the pool I guess. The only problem I had was a sunburn.

    I know of one person that did not come out for days , so you would not have seen him


    Not every one complained ,, just a walk through the buffet in the morning and you could hear a lot of what sounded like smokers cough.

    It was hit and miss

    I know of many people that were sick including Brewster the first 3 to 4 days and me the last 4 to 5 days but we were there for 2 weeks....it was not the food or water or fruit, it was a Cold..plain and simple.. soar throat, cough, some sweating and chills, just like kids in school being passed around. Not a lot that can be done about it. That many people in that size of a place is just an easy target for bugs. we still had an awesome time. .it was just different as said above..;)

    Probably something to do with people from many different locations coming together in a fairly close envirnment during cold and flu season while eating different foods and drinking excessively which inhibits their immune system :)

    Glad you didn't catch anything but I'm not sure if it's the vitamin C or the large amounts of alcohol, or both lol

    If he was sick the first day, he didn't catch the bug from the resort.
