“1st and last trip!”
Reviewed 26 March 2012

This was our first and last trip to Temptation. We had checked on Trip Advisor over the last year and read all of the comments. Most of them were typical reviews and we felt that it was a personal taste of the individual and not the over all experience of the hotel. We packed our bags, I put anything from shorts and a tank top to the smallest and sexiest things i had! I wore only the smallest sexiest things all week! That was the good part!

When we checked in at 2:30pm the room was not ready... ok fine check in is at 3pm. I gave them a half hour and we went to eat lunch in the buffet. The food is typical buffet food but we found it to be good! It's not 5 star but there is nothing wrong with it. We went back to the desk at 3pm and our room was ready. The bell boy carried our things up to our room. We booked a Standard room because we were not going to be in there very often anyway. You can really see the ocean from any room. We over looked a roof, but just beyond that was the pool and the ocean. The bed we had was very soft and we found ourselves in a hole in the middle of the bed. We were on the "quiet side" of the resort. I would tell you to do the same if you want to sleep for a few hours a night! If you plan on staying up all night and all day then go stay over by Patty O's. We did hear some music one night but it wasn't anything you couldn't go to sleep with. Not a big deal.

On day 3 we asked for maid service by leaving the sign on the door. Everything went well. Nothing was missing room was clean and we had fresh towels and sheets. We do not ask for it every day because we don't need to have someone in our room all the time. On day 4 with the DO NOT DISTURB sign on the door the maid went in and cleaned our room. She also had taken some things out of the trash can and placed them on our towel decoration. My husbands pill bottle was empty ( he should have locked it up, however we did not ask for service) and my drawer with all my panties and bathing suits had been dug in. The DVD player and lap top were untouched. When we complained to the front desk she did nothing about it except to say they would look into it and get back to us! We also asked her to make sure that no one came in our room for the rest of the trip and that we would call down for towels and things. She did honor that and we had no other problems after that.

As for entertainment or lack there of! The music system is awful! They use the same portable sound system ( sound on a stick) for the pool party, and the night club. Both in the Patty O's and Nice Shoes you will find that all of the "entertainment" is on one level and you are not elevated to see what is going on! If you do not get in there first to get to the front you wont see anything. BIG NOTE: Sexy Lingerie is not just for the ladies! It is for the men as well! Men you must wear some sort of boxers or night time wear to get in to Nice Shoes. After going up to our room to change our clothes we come back to find out that the "casino" was open for 30mins and the show was over in that room! That is the biggest complaint I have.... You get in and get a drink and start to get into what ever is going on in the room and then the show is over and that room is closed and you have to move on to something else. There is no night club except for Patty O's and all they play is techno. No real dance floor. After a few days of non stop blaring Techno music at the pool my husband asked the DJ to play something else! Anything Else!!!! With a few pesos in his pocket he came to us and asked us what we wanted to hear! It was myself and my husband and 2 other couples that were all hanging out together that week. We gave him a "set list" and amazing he had it all and played it all! The next day when we came down to the pool the Techno was playing again but it quickly changed when he saw all of us there! After that no problems at all! He played a good mix of music.

If you do not like to see breasts this is not the place for you! There are all kinds of breasts different shapes and sizes! ( It brings new meaning to" if you've seen one you've seen them all) It was great fun and no one ever makes you feel uncomfortable! I was topless on day 2 and loved it!

As for the dinners... We were with 2 other couples... One couple said that Italian was awful, we tried it and thought it was good! Seafood was very good and Asian was very good! We did not like the Tex-Mex place very much but it is ok for something quick! Rudy in the Buffet was our waiter for most of the week! He was very good and very nice! He had our drinks ready when he saw us come in the door! Over all the food was not bad.

If you are a first time guest be prepared to have a red band on your arm. If you have been more then once they will give you a white band. Well if you have a white band they wait on you hand and foot and you get top shelf liquor as well. One of the couples we were with had white bands and they tried to "share" with us and well you would have thought they should have been kicked out! Chunky Monkey is my favorite frozen drink there.

As the week was coming to an end we noticed that there were a lot of new faces! That was great until........... It was a bunch of young single guys there and I do mean a bunch.... I say 50 just in our one area that we were laying out in! They were not more than 21 and so loud and horse playing in the pool, cannon balls off the side soaking all of our towels and things! We said something to management and they said that it was ok and did nothing about it! I think that for every 5 couples there should be one single guy aloud!

This resort has been said to be a swingers resort! It is more like a wanna be swingers resort! This is just like any other resort that is adult only just topless. We met some great friends that I am sure we will keep in touch with for a long time to come!

I went with a girlfriend for a getaway without the children and the husband. We are both in our forties and it was a very relaxing vacation. We were there March 9-15, 2012. Our room was 1258 and we had a large balcony overlooking the seafood restaurant and we had a view of the ocean. Room was clean and the maid was great. Every day she left us a towel sculpture! Food was adequate. We upgraded at the Italian restaurant, but we did not feel it was worth it. We did have some stomach issues around day four, but not enough to stop us from enjoying the resort. We rented a sailboat from the hotel. It was excellent. We sailed over to the island and swam and shopped. Highly recommend doing this. No problems checking in. I was never asked about the time share so that was not an issue. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Left a tip after every breakfast and we were always greeted with a smile and coffee promptly. A few dollars really does go a long way. Drinks were good. Just be specific with your liquor choices if you do not want the cheap stuff. Games at the pool were fun to watch. We are planning to return next year.. .

Room Tip: Room 1258 by the quiet pool has a nice view of the ocean.

This was our 3rd trip to Cancun Temptations Resort. I had been following the reviews this year and had expected a different experience from previous vacations at the resort. We had another great vacation and if anything the experience was better than last year. Our room was clean, comfortable and quiet. The food was good to excellent. The buffet was well stocked with something for everyone and the Asian, Seafood, Texmex and Italian were above average. Entertainment both day and night was excellent, but what makes this an enjoyable experience are the people who attend Temptations to have fun and meet folks from all over the world. It has a friendly and casual atmosphere and there is always an exciting tone of romance and sexuality. The beach is fine, but if you are expecting surf and sandbars you may be disappointed. Fun times at the 'Sexy pool' and quiet relaxation at the 'Quiet pool and beach'. Always lots to drink and eat plus service is friendly and above average. 20, 30, 40, 50 ?? you get to participate and re-live those college spring break activities all over again. You will only be bored if you want to be bored. Lots of nice sight seeing at the resort with a great mix of ages and socialization. Does the heart well. Good dance music at Paty "O" Bar. If you want to retire early ask for a room away from the bar area as it rocks till early morning. Only drawback.....vacation was too short.

Room Tip: Avoid the area next to the Paty"O" Bar if you are a light sleeper. Tip your room attendant...

I am amazed at some of the negative comments that come up here about this resort. The front office staff has always been acommadating and check in and out was a breeze the room was ready when we got there and when we had a problem with the drain in the jacuzzi suite and the safe it was done within 15 minutes of me asking if something could be done.

As far as the buffet is concerned we always found good food and it was hot. You must realize that buffets are not gourmet food, however what we liked is that they serve them in small dishes and constantly are refilling them so they are not sitting there for any length of time without some new coming out of the kitchen.

The resort does miss Chino and the action around the pool is good but not as good as it used to be. A little more low energy and this was during spring break. The people at the resort are always friendly and that is what makes the resort. The nightly entertainment is excellent and there is always a party going on here.

The specialy restaurants are good with the Village Wok being the best of them. The night on the beach with all you can eat lobster, shrimp, scallops, steak and chicken was wonderful. You have to pay extra, but we feel it was worth it. The only negative was the barbaque, the food was really good but the tables were really low and being tall was a pain to have to sit at and eat.

We are planning on going back again next year as we meet new and old friends. As wells as our bartenders and staff that serve us so well way to go Armando, Jose, Manuel, Sarah, Tiger and the wait staff at the restaurants.

Room Tip: Get a room away from the Paddy O lounge

I just completed my 2nd stay here in as many months. My first visit was as a single man, and I had lots of fun here on my own so decided to bring my girlfriend back about a month later.

I must say that the hotel itself, staff, drinks, and fun are deserving of a 4-to-5 star review. When we checked in, they upgraded us to a Temptation Suite at no extra charge. Staff were friendly, food quality was great, drinks were good, and the Quiet area of the hotel was indeed quiet for us. My girlfriend and I had a fully enjoyable time here until our final night, when our trip took a devastating turn.

Many of the reviews here discuss the lack of inhibition at this place. The positives are that you can be yourself and cut loose in a way that you normally wouldn't be able to at home. The negative side of that freedom, however, is that some defective human beings use this as an opportunity to victimize others, as they feel a sense of omnipotence.

On our last night at the resort, just after the Patty O Lounge had closed for the night, my girlfriend went to use the women's section of the quasi-unisex washroom in the hotel lobby and 3 men attempted to rape her. One man had hidden in a women's bathroom stall when she walked in, and she was followed by 2 other men who held her in the stall. She is very tenacious and was able to fight her way, by relentlessly kicking and punching, from suffering a more serious assault. She was extremely traumatized, and we left the resort the next morning without mentioning this assault to the staff.

For the entire night, the washroom was serviced by an attendant, but that attendant seems to end her shift as Patty O closes for the night, as she was not present when my girlfriend was assaulted. I presume that one of that attendant's roles is to ensure the women in the washroom are safe, and to act as a conduit to the other security personnel who work throughout the resort, to relay problems. This appears to be the security gap in our particular experience.

In the interest of protecting other women who may fall victim to this gap in security, I emailed the Temptation guest services email address and asked them to forward the information to the Manager of the resort. It has been nearly 24 hours since I sent that email and as yet have heard nothing from them. It is quite possible that these 3 men are still in the hotel at this moment, and may be using this or other tactics to sexually assault other women. Other women may not be as strong as my girlfriend, and may have already fallen victim to them.

To be fair, this is not the fault of the hotel per-se, but the fault of 3 disgusting inhumane beings. The purpose of this review is for me to ensure that everyone who stays at this hotel is aware of the negative aspects of a venue free of inhibitions, and to take the appropriate steps to ensure the safety of the women they love by accompanying them EVERYWHERE.

I had been accompanying my girlfriend to the washroom throughout the night of this incident, and this was one of the few times I did not, and I will have to live with the resultant guilt of putting her in this position, for the rest of my life. Don't make the same mistake I did.

This kind of incident could happen anywhere, but the unique hyper-sexually-charged nature of this hotel makes it more likely for it to happen in this kind of venue. Go to the resort and have fun, but be very aware of your surroundings, and be very careful.

This was the second time I had been to Temptation. The first time I went was March 2011 with my brother and I just had to go back.

The food at the buffets is adequate. It's your typical buffet food at a resort, nothing special but good enough. The a la carte restaurants really shine though.

The bartending staff is outstanding. Or at least they are with me. I tip a little and get greeted around the pool as if they are my best friends.

The beach is not the best but that's not the attraction here. EVERYONE spends all their time at the "sexy" pool. It's where all the games go on and it doesn't matter is you're 21 or 61 you can have a great time there. Yes it is loud, yes it is outlandish, but that's what people come here for. If you want a quiet relaxing vacation go somewhere else. If you want to come for a week long party with amazing people, this is the place for you.

Let go of your stereotypes and check your ego at the door, everyone is here for a good time, and if that doesn't suit you then that's fine. I know that I will continue to go back, and so will many of the people that I have met down there. Can't wait for round three!

I read the reviews so I expected the sea weed beach. They rake it up every day but you really can not swim. There is an area in the water that has been cleared away but if you love playing in the waves etc. there are none. My partner and I laid on the beach and had it to ourselves since most everyone was around the pools. The pools are very nice and clean as is everything. The only fault I could find was the cleaner they use on the tile in the rooms feels slimy on bare feet. Rooms are average hotel rooms, but have really nice oversized walk in shower. We were on the backside of the rooms where it was nice and quite. We asked for a room away from the action. The other thing regular hotels don't have is 3 stations of porn but you don't have to watch it.

I really liked the no kids policy. It felt more like a European Resort with the topless option, even though some women take it a bit further not just sunbathing but walking around in their G string. No big deal, you don't have to do it and about 50% of the women kept their tops on. I was impressed at the age diversity. Couples from mid 20's to mid 70's. We saw a good number of girl and guy groups too.
Lastly, the food. I love great food and read before we went that it was average and it was. Things like desserts looked delicious but had no flavor at all. Some items kept reappearing in different forms,salmon whole laid out for dinner one night and chunked up to put on your salad the next. We ate at the seafood resturant and asian and both were mediocre.At the asian I ordered fried fish and it was like fish mcnuggets. Breakfast was the best meal, the fresh fruit superb. The drinks were OK. Weak is good for the kind of drinking this crowd does.Forget the wine. It is not drinkable.
Be sure to bring a fist full of $1's. TIp often and leave the maid a nice amount. Those people work so hard and I am sure they appreciate every cent.

Room Tip: We asked for a King away from the noise. Thats what we got.
