    Trip #2
    We landed june 20th and had a smooth transition to the resort from the airport. We checked in at 1030am and were delighted with our room being ready for us right away the new lobby is beautiful and gives the resort classier feel.
    We took our bags to our bash tower room on the 4th floor. The room was nice although a little darker than we had hoped. We liked the styling and how the shelving was placed on the walls and didn’t lack space for our belongings. The bed was comfortable and the balcony had a beautiful view of the ocean. The privacy curtains are an awesome idea and east to use. The only real problem with the room was the lack of a good mirror near the balcony for natural lighting. The one provided is in a dark spot.
    First day ended with way too many drinks at the main pool, a vague recollection of the dinner buffet then passing out at 9pm.and missing lingerie night!

    We absolutely loved sky bar. Amazing view, the pool is really nice, the food is awesome and the DJ plays much better music than the main pool. The only negative is that it closes at 6pm and doesn’t have the same atmosphere as the main pool. People tend to give each other space and not approach or mingle which is vastly different than the main pool.

    Dinner at the Italian restaurant was really good , as was the steak restaurant. We weren’t fans of the Mexican restaurant, everything we ordered was really bland. We did not end up trying the seafood, she, or the Asian restaurant. The buffet always had good food and the room service food was great too.

    The atmosphere during the days was live and really similar to out trip 2 years ago which is what we liked and wanted. The night time parties were a little different. Way too many groups of bachelor parties with guys being assholes. On Wednesday night which we luckily missed there was a huge brawl which lead to a bunch of guys that were part of the bachelor party groups being arrested. Hopefully someone that was there can post more details about it.

    The beach was not great , but we knew that coming in.

    We had a chance to spend a couple nights partying in the top level penthouse sweet. WOW what a view. Not only of the ocean but also the party at bash.

    Overall we had an amazing time. The resort looks great, despite a couple safety hazards…. The stairs leading down to the buffet and raised dance floor.

    Staff was energetic and provided great service. The entertainment team was really good. The pre bash party shows were also very good.

    Our only real issue is the influx of bachelor parties. Everyone else we met on the resort was awesome!

    I skipped a lot so feel free to ask any questions.

    Thanks for the trip report. That's great to hear about the music up at the sky bar pool. Looking forward to checking that area out on our next trip.

    So re the groups of bachelor parties what were they doing ‘re being assholes’? Besides the fight.

    Yep agree on the sky bar assessment. We need to get the right group of people there at the same time to make that a great party up there

    Groping women as they come in and out of the washroom. Pushing themselves on woman that are not interested. Taking pictures at the pool and bash. Starting fights....

    I understand small groups of singles coming, but these large groups are a recipe for disaster and can completely ruin the atmosphere.

    Definitely worth getting the tower room upgrade to have access to sky.

    I noticed a price drop these few weeks... I'm guessing that played a huge part.

    Hope end of August is not :-(
    Perhaps TTR needs to reserve some months for couples-only.
