    New Sale Announced.
    I received an email from the resort last night announcing a sale for stays through January 1st 2019, 50% off rooms, free one way transfer from airport to the hotel and an airfare credit of $150 for non-tower rooms or $200 for tower rooms. Minimum 4 night stay required. NOTE: To receive the air fare credit you MUST send them your airline reservation within 72 hours of making your room reservation.

    Full details (with all the fine print) on how to take advantage of this sale can be found here: Air Ticket | Temptation Cancun Adults Only Resort

    Premier Members are eligible for the airfare credit - you must call 1 855 556 1632, option 1 then 4.

    To put this in context. I looked at dates for this deal and even with ‘50%’ off it was still 400+ for tower rooms and more than discount sites. So maybe it will beat some dates with the airfare credit thrown in but I would suggest still comparing to the discount sites and not trusting that this is a good deal for all scenarios. Definitely a pet peeve I have when they send out emails with 50% off and it is 50% off an inflated ‘rack rate’ that never really existed in the first place

    I did not compare the prices but I am not surprised to hear that the price is not attractive. However, this should be a savings to premier members, since they get member rates and the airfare credit. Also - it isn't clear if this applies to Referrals - if it does, they would get 25% of the "posted rate" plus the airfare credit.

    Thank you for the tip. Found the add on TTR's web page after I read your post. Called in today and was able to get $200 off our next trip in November plus a one way transfer.
    Keep these tips coming, we just love saving cash!
    Love this forum for a bunch of good reasons!

    Call the resort!

    Call the resort!

    They definately are dealing! Dont let anyone tell you otherwise! Quite possibly the best deals are for repeat customers..........


    Tell them you saw their promotion!

    BTW.......Kyle is wrong...........just contact the resort! They are working deals!

    Not sure why I am engaging the queen/king of misinformation and hyperbole but ok. If I am wrong for suggesting ‘still comparing to the discount sites and not trusting that this is a good deal for all scenarios’ , note I say not always the best deal so simply compare. How about instead of spouting off you provide us a screenshot of the deal your got via the sale by calling the resort? Your best shot, best deal. A nice friendly challenge. I will then see what deal I can get for the same dates on discount sites. Also of course providing screen shots with actual proof instead of making wild inflammatory statements. Then we will not only see if he advertising is true (my main premise is it is not and is misleading) but we will also see whether the resort wins or a discount site. Do you accept my challenge? :)

    I have to agree with you Kyle. The deals we found on Skoosh and prestigia blew the rates from TTR out of the water. I think we paid $2359 (two people) for 7 nights in the Bash Tower on prestigia and a friend of mine paid $1700 for 7 nights on Skoosh for one person in the Bash Tower as well. There may be better deals out there. I did a lot of research but never found anything even close. We started with hotelscombined.com and that directed us to Skoosh and prestigia.

    The struggle is real! Which coast and dates? July schedule is pretty packed but possibly find some time! Headed back to TTR/Pearl Nov!
