Our Valentine's Day getaway was at Temptation Resort in Cancun, Mexico. We were there for 3 nights, it is an all-inclusive, adult-only, topless optional "playground for adults", which caters to couples living a certain lifestyle. No judgments. Of course, you don't have to be part of this lifestyle to stay here and have a great time, just don't be shocked by the things you see.
We flew out of JFK on Saturday morning, arrived in Mexico and had to deal with almost 2 hours in customs. Not good Mexico. This part of the trip was the worst. The customs kiosks went down and there was a mob of people trying to find what line to get on. It took some time to identify the line, but finally, we were in a line and it was moving. Once we went through customs we walked towards the exit where there were plenty of people to help. One lady approached us and asked if we had transportation and when we told her the name of our shuttle, Super Shuttle, she directed us towards their stand. There they asked for our name and resort, confirmed their information and called our driver. They offered us cold water while we waited which was great because it sure was hot!
Once we were moving, it took about 20 minutes to get to our resort. This was our first time visiting Mexico and we were so surprised to see so many Volkswagens, LOL. Our cars are VWs so seeing so many VW's and models we didn't know existed was interesting. When we arrived everyone was great. The guys came right out to grab our luggage, a lady with an ipad approached us to welcome us and direct us to the check-in counter. She said that she would actually be our contact for any questions or help we needed throughout our stay. During check-in, another lady came by to offer us a drink (all-inclusive is awesome). Since we were early, our room wasn't ready yet so they held our luggage and gave us our bracelets, which we were supposed to keep on for the entire stay, and told us we can explore the resort, have lunch, or change and enjoy the beach & pool. We went down to eat at Rain, the international buffet. We had some pasta with meatballs, broccoli & dessert - cake, tres leche cake and a flan. These were small servings so we tried 3 different ones. When we were done eating it was still early so we went upstairs to look down at what was going on at the Sexy Pool. No pictures are allowed at this pool, to respect other's privacy. This is definitely the party pool. They would host games, there is great music playing and the best part was the swim up bar!
We were finally able to get to our room so we wasted no time in changing and heading down to the pool. But first, some pictures...
Overall, Cancun was great. I definitely want to go back with the kids and take another trip with just hubby but stay at a different resort. Nothing against Temptations, but I like to experience different hotels everytime I travel.
This doesn't mean I wouldn't ever stay at Temptations again. I would go back in a couple years, plus they have resorts in other countries that I would be curious to check out. I enjoyed the feeling of not being judged, being able to go topless if I wanted and nobody was disrespectful or judgemental. I've never felt comfortable in a bikini, but here I felt perfectly fine. I even went topless a few times, which is extremely surprising because this isn't something I would normally do. The atmosphere really helps in making you feel comfortable. I saw so many body types, women of different ages and all were just having fun and not worrying about how they looked. One thing that I should note, is you will see things that may surprise & shock you. Sexual activity in public is not allowed, but if you sit out on your balcony long enough, you will see it happening in other balconies.
So, if you are over 21 and interested in visiting a place that will not judge you, you can relax, enjoy the sun, beach & pool, eat, drink and party till your heart's content, then go check out Temptation Cancun! You won't regret it!
