First Timer’s Trip Report – A married couple
My wife and I went to Temptation Temptation Resort for a week. Here is an overview of things at the resort from our point of view.
Room: We liked our room- a lot. But now we understand why there is such a fuss from people about them because different rooms will have a different feel. My amazing wife needs her sleep, and a happy wife equals happy life. Advice about room choices: Make sure you request a room that suits your lifestyle.
Swingers and exhibitionists: Get a jacuzzi room lower floor. Are you looking for a quieter experience? Request a 2nd or 3rd floor by the quiet pool. That is where we stayed and we loved it. We did meet some folks who had a similar room whose airconditioning supposedly did not work, but we were cold in ours. Look, if you want a 5-star resort with marble countertops, this is not it. They keep the public areas quite clean, which is very lovely.
Beach: We had heard stories the beach was downright terrible. The truth is, again, it’s not a 5-star beach with perfect blue water. My wife, who loves the whole beach, was more than happy hanging out by the beach, riding the sailboats, wading in the ocean, finding shade (which is not available poolside). If you are visiting the Cancun area for the beach, Temptation is probably not the best resort for you. If you are there for other reasons and want the beach as part of your experience, you will be just fine.
Food: It’s tough to give an opinion (or read someone else’s) on food and beverages and get any reliable info. We all have distict tastes, and it all opinion. The food at Temptation was the same quality you might find on a cruise. Good, a lot of the time, but not great overall. The buffet was the highlight for us. They would occasionally have raw fish abailable they would cook for you on request. The seared tuna was quite tasty. A lot of the food is bland. But we love our spices. For some folks, that may be a good thing. They do have hot sauce available!
Service: Incredible, awesome and memorable. From the housekeeper, the bar staff, activity staff, security, etc., excellent!
General Vibe: Unless you book Temptation hotel by mistake, you will find your niche. There is absolutely a swinger presence, so you will be at home if that is your thing. My wife and I are not-we are the type who likes to be sexual in a crowd, but not have sex with other people. But we found our stride too, and we never felt pressured by anyone to do anything we did not want to do. The local motto “nobody knows who you are, and they do not give a shit” really is true. Be happy in your skin and at whatever pace you want, you will have an great experience and tons of fun. Temptation Resort
Tips for Newbies:
1) Bring tip money. The rumor is you get better drinks if you tip, not sure we noticed that, but we tipped anyway. We tipped our housekeeper $5 a day. When asked for extra bottled water, she stocked up our fridge! Nice to stay hydrated after a day at the pool/beach.
2) Don’t be afraid. Before we went, we read many posts about heavy girls, to swingers, to what to wear, what if I am too fat, etc.
The bottom line facts are: If you think you’re too old, you won’t be the most senior. If you believe you are too overweight, there will be other heavier people there. If you think you are the hottest, coolest couple- there will be a couple hotter. Everyone fits in. The first day we got there, a 70’ish woman was strutting around in a thong bottom, and I said, “May God bless her!” and my sweet wife said, “I hope to be her someday.”
3) Ladies, if you find a sexy dress in the colors that match the hotel theme night, you will fit right in. If you are thinking, “Can I wear that” the answer is a definite Hell yes! The first night we dressed in jeans and t-shirts and went out, and nobody noticed. The last night of our trip my wife was wearing a see-through shirt and a revealing white thong, again, nobody blinked. We even saw a guy with a mesh thong. A bunch of girls with nipples protruding, and we loved them too. Be as sexy (or not) as you want – or not, and trust us-you won’t be an obvious stand out.
My wife is also somewhat conservative, and right away, she stated she needed more revealing clothes. But the thing is, whether you show the girls off, wear a hot pink thong, or wear just jeans and a T-shirt, nobody gives a shit.
Be who you are. Have fun and enjoy the trip. Temptation Resort
