So my hubby and I were at TTR from 6/10-6/14 then moved over to Desire RM until 6/18. It has been 3 years since we've been to TTR (having babies and stuff) so I was not sure what to expect. The last time we went was shortly after the renovation. I was anxious to see what things were like this time. For one, because we became members prior to this trip and for two, I knew the vibe at TTR has been changing. I will start with going as a member. I liked checking in at Premier. It was quick and easy. I loved the Premier bar at the pool. The bartenders there are awesome. The members lunch on the beach was cool. The food was good (mostly seafood). Other than that, I do not feel like I benefited from our membership much in the sense of perks. Most bars ran out of "premium vodka" quickly. I was told there is a liquor shortage in Mexico, which I get they can't necessarily control, but it still sucked. Our butler was non existent. We were assigned one, but it was pointless because we never saw him. Our "free lobster" was void because apparently it is lobster mating season..? So they said we would get shrimp or a filet instead. Every time we tried to use it, we were told they were out of both. So we never benefited from that. So, overall, I was not impressed going as a member. I had better luck when I went on Referrals in previous years. We got a plush jacuzzi room. I loved the room because it was in a great location and it was very quiet (except for the super loud people throughout the night that felt the need to bang on our door for no reason..). The maids did a great job keeping our room clean. The AC did not work very well, but it worked. We ordered room service a few times and it came relatively quick. Late night room service did take a bit longer, but I wouldn't complain about that. We went to all restaurants except for She. All were just ok. The Italian restaurant was extremely slow. Granted we did have 6 people at our table, but we were there for well over 2 hours. And that did not include getting dessert. Sutra was good. Not much to choose from off of their menu. Flame was ok. Nothing exciting. I did like that they had a salad bar I could pick from before we got our meal. We are not foodies by any means and aren't hard to please, so we were fine with the food overall.. The buffet was probably our favorite. We don't really like having to make reservations and stick to a time. We never know how our day will go, so the buffet is the easiest and the quickest. There was always a good variation to choose from and the food was good. Had we not gone to Desire, I would have probably rated the food at TTR higher. The food at Desire blows TTR out of the water big time. But its not really fair to compare the two. Bash. To be honest, the bartenders were slow and miserable. We are good tippers. So even with throwing money at them all night, it changed nothing. Pretty much the same at the lobby bar as well. I ordered a drink at the lobby bar and the bartender told me he had change.. Basically his way of implying I needed to tip (which we ALWAYS do, but make my drink first please). The music sucked like usual. The same crap every night. The DJ literally does not pay attention to the vibe and the people on the dance floor. You could see the vibe change in people once the DJ actually played something popular and not Spanish EDM music. It was always very short lived, though. Bash can get very hot and stuffy in areas and it makes the cigarette/cigar smoke stagnant and overwhelming at times. The overall vibe of the hotel has changed substantially. We miss the old TTR (pre-reno) so much. I do not enjoy the Vegas like feel TTR is promoting. I would say the ratio of topless at the pool is wayyyyy lower than pre-reno. Maybe 20-30% were topless. Only about 30% participation for theme nights. You could easily point out the TTR OG's and the newbies. When we first found TTR in 2015, our first 2 trips were spent only there. 3rd trip we did 6 nights TTR and 2 Desire. Last trip was split evenly. After this trip, we have decided TTR is only good for 2 nights max, if that. We want to love it, but we just cant. The only thing I will miss is the daytime entertainment at the sexy pool. That is the only downfall I can point out at Desire. If I could have the playmakers from TTR go to Desire it would be a match made in heaven! Since this is not the Desire RM forum, I will not go into detail about our experience there. However, I will say, their food, service and treatment as a member puts TTR to shame. And just for perspective, I am 36 and my husband is 35. We feel like we aged out of TTR but were on the much younger side of Desire RM.
