    What a great trip! We booked through a local travel agency, who used Funjet/Lomas for all the arrangements and transfers. They did a great job! When I booked the trip, I talked to my agent that it was for my wife’s birthday and that I wanted a room with a king bed, flat TV, and balcony. We got to the resort about 1:30 pm Saturday and we were met at the door and they took us right to the VIP Lounge to the Concierge desk. There they had an envelope with our paperwork, room keys and a voucher for a candle light dinner at our choice of a couple of restaurants. We checked in and it took about 20 minutes. Our room was exactly what we wanted! Very nice, great view overlooking the quiet pool and we could see the ocean. We got down to the fun pool at about 3:00 and started having a few drinks and started to meet and talk to people in the pool. Then the foam party started at 4. What a BLAST! Many women were topless. When we returned to the room there was a cheesecake and Happy Birthday written on the platter! That was awesome!! What a great welcome! We ate at the Moroccan Restaurant for m wife’s candle light dinner. The food was very good and for the dessert they brought out was very good and to top it off the waiters came out and sang Happy Birthday!! We ate breakfast everyday at the buffet it was also good and many of the waiters/waitresses knew us and what we wanted to drink. Mary (a cook) always knew what we wanted on our omelets! She made them very good! Wimpy’s food for lunch was all pretty good! We ate evening dinners at all restaurants except for the White Box and Make Tako. Would have liked to but just didn’t work out for us. Food was really good. The beach was fantastic! The sand was like sugar, very soft! Everyday about 2:00 pm the swim up bar pool got pretty lively! Lots of fun!! The afternoon entertainment was fun and hilarious everyday! The evening entertainment was very good also! We went to the Coyote Bar a couple of night and had a great time and there was a great band called Somba! Unfortunately, we didn’t get there more nights, but with a long day of boozing some night were pretty early!! We met some great ccc people and other guest that now we consider friends.! We had a great time and would love to come back again!
    Now, a couple of issues or non-issues, some people have reported that they had no hot water in the shower. On our 1sr night we didn’t either, but I was too drunk to care. The 2nd night my wife said, still no hot water. I checked the sink and there was hot water. I then pulled the shower lever up and to the left and guess what…. There was hot water! It took my wife a couple of night to master it! There was plenty of hot water!
    Drinks were pretty good! I personally like the beer a little colder. More choice of shots, such as; bumble bee, cherry bombs, Mexican flag, etc.
    All in all, no major complaints from the Huserfanz! We wil definitely recommend this resort to other to come and have a fun filled vacation!

    More reports like this and GOV roll calls and popularity will continue to grow. The only downside with a trip report means it's over for you. :icon_frown
    Better get a another trip booked. We always have one or two booked to look forward to...June can't get here fast enough.
