I am STUNNED by many of the negative reviews!
I stayed at Temptations last April after hearing about the fantastic time my family had the year before. I listened all year to what a wonderful and amazing time my family had, believe me I was skeptical that it could come close to living up to the hype! It didn't, it far exceeded it! Not only was the hotel beautiful but every single staff member was friendly to our entire party. The entertainment staff was exceptional, encouraging people to have fun but certainly never force anyone to do anything they didn't want to. I don't think it comes as any surprise to anyone but if you yell at people and constantly complain about everything, you are probably no going to get the great service ever... just a fact of life anywhere. As for complaints of topless women, come on... really? The resort is called TEMPTATIONS!!! Did you not do any research before your vacation or honeymoon? If the name didn't give it away its says right on the website, Topless optional! Two of the complaints I have read I understand, if you have a room near the patio lounge you probably wont sleep unless you wait until 5 or 6 am to go to bed, it does get pretty loud so if that is a concern make sure ahead of time to request a room away from it. The beach itself is nice however the surf if covered in seaweeds that get raked out daily, but the always seem to collect right back, so its not really the place to go if you want to spend a lot of time in the ocean. The pool does close after dark for safety reasons. The story I heard from the staff was that a drunken couple dived head first into the pool one night after having 12 to many.... the water is only 3-4 feet deep in the entire pool, not built for diving. I thought the rooms themselves were very nice, the beds where comfortable, nice big showers, minibar restocked daily. The food its self is pretty good, the buffet is of course all inclusive as well as the Tex-Mex place which is awesome, but the specialty restaurants are an extra charge. The drinks themselves are great, they do not water it down, however tough I do not know for sure I do believe that they moderate how much alcohol they pour in the drinks once they determine that you are smashed, which I believe is a good thing. Of course tipping i gets you better service, this is true EVERYWHERE! Remember though, we are talking pesos... a good tip come out to like 25 cents every couple of drinks if that. These people are working hard, they deserve tips. All of that said I think the part I enjoyed the most were the other guests. If you come there while a good attitude willing to have a good time with fun people there is no place like it! But for crying out loud, if you're looking for quite, time this is not the place for you. I plan to make this an annual thing I plan to go every year around mid April, so if you see me say hello, I'm be the one having a great fucking time!
