    I would prefer a smaller one, unless your just drinking beer. I like a smaller one, and get lots of the blender drinks. Works for me.

    Yup bubba keg all the way. Walmart carries 22oz sizes. Hell get one of each lol. Try the coconut shrimp at pier 12 it's amazing. Fried ice cream at sumo.
    Line couple cancun said join in the games with the entertainment staff, tip not that it's required but these guys and gals work their asses off so we can kick back and enjoy our vacation, they are well worth a tip.

    Heading to GP on 2-9 Aug. Keep hearing different reports. What rooms do we try to get to have a frig and ocean view? Is the shows at night any fun. Traveling with my GF and her daughter and daughters friend. Want to have fun but also relax. Been to TTR twice but first time here and know what to expect from TTR but not from GP. Can anyone help?

    I think floors five and six have a fridge and hot tub in the room. We always get ocean view, worth the little extra. They have a minimum age. Just making the daughter is old enough.

    Thank You Vacationfun2. Yes they are 23/24. Just wondering how things stood around the GP. Read lots of bad on tripadvisor about the place and wanted to get the truth from people that have been there. Any other advice you can give us?

    Heading back to GB in February 2016.. Sad to hear that this is not a LS resort....we were kinda thinking we got the vibe last time. Any thoughts anyone? And if there are lifestyles there, any opinions on seeking them out? Lol

    Forget the bubba keg and get a yeti. They work much better.
    Do not expect much from the food at GP. Mediocre at best. Way behind in variety and quality from some of the other places we have stayed. Service is average but nothing to brag about . Our first trip to GP but ninth to the cancun/riviera maya area. GP seems to have a core group that are die hard GP but it is a three star resort on its beat day. I'm not the hard to please person just stayed at other resorts that have better service and much better food. All according to what you are looking for. Our group still enjoyed our stay but did not enjoy the food.

    We were there at the end of November and it was bullshit. Someone would anonymously complain and 10 women would have to put there tops on. Make no mistake this place is NOT TOPLESS OPTIONAL. Be prepared Stripper Pasties | Pastease | Nipple Covers |MyStripperCloset.com There is very little in the way of evening entertainment. Most people hang out at the Tiki Bar which is just the outside bar. The inside bar was like a refrigerator. If you like to dance get a cab at around 11pm and head for The Grand Mambo Café. the band starts around midnight and the place rocks until sunrise. They have bottle service too. Also get Uber in your phone don't get ripped off by NYC cab prices. This place cost a third of what Desire costs and about a grand less than Temptation at their grand opening prices. If TTR isn't done next fall we will go back here. They have a much better beach, no sea grass and there's surf.
