“Once again Temptations has outdone themselves”
Reviewed January 30, 2010

I just returned from my second trip to Temptations and was wishing I was still there. I became a member last year ( my first visit) and just loved it, however this year coming back was even better. As a member you get a personal butler Alberto who makes your stay the best you could dream of. All the staff is outstanding and they remember your name which just blows me away when there are so many people there. If you have a concern Norma or her handsome counter part ( can't remember his name) would address the issue immediately and it was resolved.

The resort is a place to have fun and relax, you can go to the sexy pool and hang out and have a huge party or you can go to the quiet pool and relax. Topless is everywhere, if this is an issue for you than you need to go to a resort where it is not adults only. However from my experience anywhere in the Carribean it is okay to go topless so maybe you need to stay in the states where it is not okay. As an adults only resort you will see adults letting loose and enjoying themselves, this is why we are on vacation, this is the place to go!!!!

The food is very good and all the restaurants cater to your needs, the buffet is excellent and offers a huge variety of everything, the fresh fruit is the best. Breakfast of eggs to order, omelets what ever you want. I have to say my favorite place this year was the Tex-Mex for both breakfast and dinner.

There were three of us there as members and we brought along another couple who were not members, and we ended up hooking up with 5 other people while we were there and became a party of 10, everywhere we went the accomidated our needs, what more can you ask for when you are on vacation? We have made new friends and have kept in touch all going thru Temptaions withdrawl together from Maine to the UK. We are already planning next years trip so we can all hook up again.

As far as safety goes, no worries, you can take the bus into town and back very cheap and safe. The resort has security to keep out unwanted people and to watch over the guests not overpowering but you do see them.

A few must do activities are the parasailing, day trip to the Island (it leaves right from the dock at the resort), and a visit to the ruins.

We visted this resort back in 2008 and not much has changed,the pool games are a little more risque nothing over the top.Chinos and Brenda do a great job of the entertainment and work vary hard with long hours.The rest of the staff work hard and we did give them tips for there work.We were there from Jan. 13 -27th in room # 5514 ground floor near the volley ball net great location.The crowning of miss temptation took place on the 21st it was a good show and all the girls were frendly with miss nov. being the bad girl of the group. The food was great with lots of sea food the lobster is a must $22 US .Did not have a bad meal in two weeks.The only draw backs of this resort is that a lot of the beach chairs are in poor shape,and the time share scam that they try to suck you into , this is not what I go on vaction for .Last thing are the creapers that take pictures of the toppless girls on the beach grow up.Over all we will be back to this resort it is a lot of fun and you will meet alot of nice people.Darcy

Had a good time except for a couple of cool days, it was early January and the wind off the sea was chilly. Can't blame the resort for the weather.
The buffet is tremendous but the gourmet restaurants were absolutely fantastic. The food rates up there with really good cruise ships.
If you want quiet, be sure to ask for it during check-in. The staff was pleasant and helpful. The entertainment was a bit weak but the food makes up for it.
I suppose some folks would be upset because there are a few women that go topless around the pool but if that offends, it can be avoided or simply go to a different resort.

We have been here for two weeks and the hotel has been absolutely excellent. the staff are very professional and very friendly. Our favourite bartenders are Dionisio and alfredo and the scuba instructor Boris was very professional taking out a nervous diver. The food has been excellent. All 3 of the ala carte restaurants have been outstanding. The beach is fantastic, white sand and warm water. We would defintely come here again, in fact we became club members and look forward to our next visit. Above all, the staff here are outstanding. The weather has been great. We are glad we came for two weeks as one week would not have been enough.

If you are looking for a vacation destination where you are guaranteed to meet the most laid-back, hilarious, just plain FUN people ever, then Temptation is the place you MUST visit. In addition to having the best staff, amazing food, and engaging activities, it also just happens to be incredibly affordable. After just 7 days, my husband and I made at least 25 new friends that I expect to be in touch with for a long time to come. Whether we were hanging out at the hotel, or going out to the downtown clubs, every day was just pure heaven. We've been visiting this resort for the past five years, and though we sometimes feel guilty for returning so often, the fact is, we have very little vacation, and this is the only place we KNOW we will always have a great time.

Bottom line: If you go on vacation because you want rose petals in your bath and hotel staff licking your obnoxious American boots, then please, go to the Ritz Carlton. But if you value a fun atmosphere filled with genuinely wonderful people from all over the world, then you MUST come here. One word of caution: you'll never want to go anywhere else!

My wife and I have been to the resort several times before but last year we took advantage of the VIP breakfast and sat through the presentation. We were delighted with the cost and terms and signed up there and then. Those guests who are not interested in sitting through the presentation just have to decline the invitation.
As premier members we got some nice extra perks – upgraded room; Alberto, our private butler; and access to the private beach area where they have reserved beds and sun loungers with the constant attention, if required, of a waiter who caters solely for members. Norma and Arturo, from the Premier office are truly excellent and really took care of our every need.
In fact all the staff at the hotel are so accommodating and fantastic. Not one of them will pass you without a greeting. The waiter in the buffet restaurant where we had breakfast remembered our names from the second day and always fetched our (different) fruit juices without us having to ask. The food was very good with that in the specialist restaurants being first class. We especially liked eating in the Chinese Wok restaurant which overlooks the ocean and has a very intimate atmosphere. We also tried the Mexican and Italian cuisine.
Those individuals or couples who like a lively atmosphere are catered for at the sexy pool. This is where the entertainment staff are situated and get the guests involved in risque games both in and out of the water. Some people want to take part and others just want to watch the goings on. As the name implies the majority of women around the sexy pool go topless. If, however, you don’t want to be involved or even watch what’s going on, then you can move to the quiet pool. Both pools have jacuzzis and swim-up bars. There is a sports pool in between them where you can play volleyball or take scuba lessons.
The beach, with the hotel being on the sheltered side, has very small waves which makes it ideal for sailing or kayaking, both available at the hotel. The lack of large waves makes for a build-up of seaweed overnight but hotel workmen are out at first light each morning raking it up and carting it away leaving behind the fine white sand.
This obviously then was our first time staying at the resort as members and I have to say it made a huge difference and we were treated like royalty. Several reviewers have been somewhat critical about Premier but my wife and I are planning to return again in August and are very happy with our decision to buy the timeshare and would recommend it to anybody.

We completed our eighth stay at Temptation in January. We participated in the Miss Temptation competition and are pleased to say that it was our best experience yet. Mario took great care of everyone and did a fantastic job organizing the festivities and running the contest. He treated all of the participants like royalty and pulled off the event flawlessly. If I'm ever trying to organize an event in Cancun, Mario's my guy. After our most recent trip, we would recommend Temptation even more vigorously to all of our open-minded friends; as mentioned previously, it's not for everyone. But if you're looking for the best party of your life in a non-judgmental setting, give Temptation a try!
