    Temptation Resort Review




    I have read a lot of trip reports about Temptation, but I have never written one myself. So in order to show a degree of altruism- here we go.


    We spent 6 nights there Monday to Sunday, early November. I am going to list different categories and then elaborate with different thoughts, feelings, ideas, opinions. By doing this way this review will have some type of structure and will allow me to organize my thoughts.


    United Airlines,

    No complaints about United . The flight was on time with no issues, we did the economy, not the basic economy which I have heard can be a nightmare. If you get the United Airline app on your phone it will text you to tell you when boarding is starting and what gate to go to and other useful information. We used the boarding pass on my phone which speeds things along and make everything more convenient


    USA Travel

    Taxi was on time no issues- on return everything was efficient $55 return


    Check IN

    We came in on a red eye and was hoping to just go the pool while we were waiting for the room to be ready. It was pouring down with rain and didn’t clear up until about 4 pm. Don’t expect your room to be ready till 3pm. There was no where to relax -my wife in the end went to the spa and had a massage and she said she slept, but at least she was able to relax. She liked the Spa but thought it expensive- if you walk down the beach you can get a massage for about $ 45. The Spa receptionist was trying to promote the sensual massage but my wife thought it was not worth it. While it was the raining the Playmakers did there best to keep people entertained, but the resort is not really set up for when the weather is bad


    Time share set up

    No one approached us about the dreaded time share nightmare , but we heard from other couples who did and we saw the hard sell going on all throughout the trip. Just say no , and don’t leave any deposit, which is one trick I have heard people complain about



    Booking Restaurants

    We got in on early Monday morning and the earliest decent times for the SHE and Sutra was not until Wednesday. So if you want to eat at these restaurants do it at time of check in

    On our first night we had to call security because our neighbors wife had caught her husband with another man! She was screaming about blood on the sheets she was screaming for about hour security could not calm her down, apart from that we saw no security issues. Never a dull moment


    Weather

    I think we bought the rain in. For the first two days if was raining on and off and often time the pool was freezing , even the hot tub was chilly. The resort like I said dose struggle to be fun and pleasant when the rain comes in


    Rooms

    We got the ocean view room which I think was worth upgrade. The room itself is basic clean. The tiles are slippery in the room and the cabinets were cheap- an upgrade on these details may be worthwhile. We got to see the Tower rooms on a couple of different occasions :] and I think the upgrade would be worth it. At our time of booking the Tower rooms were sold out.

    Food

    We enjoy the food. It is not a 3 star Michelin, but we enjoy the service which I feel surpasses some Michelin star restaurants that I have been to.


    The Italian

    Our fav good food , wine not excellent but drinkable and if you look into some of balconies you often get to see a show, better than watching porn


    SHE

    We enjoyed it thought the food and service was excellent, we also enjoyed the show. Other couples we spoke to were not impressed


    Sutra


    We thought the show was good and really thought the food was tasty and enjoyable


    Mexican

    We loved this place for lunch we only really had the buffet there but loved the ceviche


    Rain

    I would get up every morning and have breakfast , amazing service and omelets are to die for. We did not eat there for dinner or lunch

    Flame

    Out least favorite — I think they should probably do something different

    Coffee shop

    As good as Starbucks no complaints

    Booze cruise,

    We did not do it this year but we heard that couples that went had fun. You should do it at least once We like to get wild but this is not really our thing



    Playmakers

    JJ - the Boss I have known JJ for about 5 years and he puts on a good show- he did confide to me that some of “ old timers” miss the old Temptations and think the it is not as wild— that is not our experience

    We love all the Playmakers the energy the vibe and they help make the place what is is

    Theme Nights

    Years gone by the theme nights did not have a high level of participation , but this year it was about 85%. We thought the Glow party really bought out some creativity

    Music

    We really enjoyed the range of music to rock 80s hip hop. The DJ really was good at assessing the mood

    Sexy Pool

    You have to be up by 9 30 to reserve chairs at after that you are out of luck

    We love all these games - they even got me to enter to the sexy leg contest- I didn’t win


    Our Favorite Sexy Game Memory

    Beer drinking contest USA vs Rest Of World

    Up comes USA vs Finland— “ so what do you want to say to your Finish contestant ?“

    “ Where the Fuck is Finland?”

    “ ,.and you sir what do you want to say to your contestant from the USA”

    “ Why are you so fucking stupid?”

    I have never laughed so loud

    But there is more

    Two Hot topless girls one Canadian one American


    “ What do you want to say to your Canadian contestant”

    “ you have nice tits”

    “ And you what do you want to say to your American contestant “


    “ we have free healthcare”

    It is moments like these that are precious



    Bash

    Fun - I heard the dance floor can be slippery when wet, we did not have any issues


    The two night it rained the party was in the reception area— and it was still fun


    AGE Ranges

    The youngest I saw -mid 20s oldest 70s average age 45-50


    Attractiveness of crowd


    This is a subjective issue the whole spectrum. But we liked what we saw. If you are a couple in your 20s looking to hook up with loads of attractive super hot couples you’re probably going to be disappointed Another random thing I notice was you saw a lot of older not so attractive guys with younger hot girls , but not any older girls with young guys-


    % of toplessness


    It would vary but around 55%. But sometime the ones who didn’t go topless would often be one the wilder girls. % of girls with boob jobs about 15% but I think that would vary dramatically from week to week


    Singles

    We met some really cool single guys, who had a great time I also saw a couple of leering creepy guys- I personally would not really recommend Temptations for single people - I think you would have more fun at Vegas or Miami




    Diversity

    All the years coming to Temptations this was the most diverse I have seen it— I think it adds to vibe of the place and adds to the special Temptation sauce


    Lifestyle


    % of couples in lifestyle My wife thinks it is about half, with about another 25% of couples with enough alcohol can be persuaded to get a little crazy. We talked to one innocent couple who asked so what web sites are you on! - I am always surprised. Just make sure you talk to each other and be sure you know who your audience are. Get to know what different terms mean

    Soft swap , open swap and try not to get too drunk that you are doing something that you might regret. Look after your partner this is especially true at about the 3 30pm to 5pm timeframe - everyone is a little sloppy and sometimes you could be doing stuff you might regret , but for me this is the witching wild hour- where all the devils come out to play


    Suggestions


    At the old temptation there was a sports pool that people would go to get a little friendly in . Now there is no where to go to can they open the hot tubs on top of the Tower for late night activities ?


    Tipping


    Is there a way to use room key to tip rather than bring wet dollar bills s to pool?

    Thank you for taking the time to express your experience.

    Tipping/paying with the room key wrist band charged to the room is an excellent idea.
    Just think, when someone passes out you can drag them around like “Weekend at Bernie’s” and tip BIG!!!

    Thanks for the report.

    I still can’t figure out how people have trouble with the timeshare presentation people. I’m four trips, we were only “pressured” twice. It took one no, and that was it. No problems at all. Hard to believe some of the complaints aren’t exaggerated.

    Regarding tipping with your room key, that would be a huge issue to implement as it would require computer workstations at all the bars, etc...not something I would see happening with the layout (they don't even have computers at the inside restaurants lol).

    That must have been a big shocker to that wife catching her husband with another guy. Guess I see divorce in the future

    Thanks for your report! We just went at the beginning of the month and had a great time. We thought the music was great and like that you enjoyed it too. It's like TTR heard the complaint and did something about it!

    I have often wondered if the better music reviews is just people with different tastes that maybe happen to like it or if they have really varied the djs now due to the feedback and it has gotten better. With more of these reports I really hope it is the latter. Was your experience that there was variety each night? Not a lot of repeats?
