Temptation Resort Spa Cancun
Travel Blogs from Cancun
Woke up at 9AM at my hotel Temptations Resort. It was quite a place! First it is a beautiful resort located on the majestic beach waters. The hotel is all inclusive with unlimited food and drink. Temptations is also an adults only hotel. Easily 50% of the women were topless at the pools and beach. Throughout the day were all kinds of adult games …
An all girl's all inclusive holiday to Cancun seven of us went and I really enjoyed it. Whilst I was there I went to Isla Mujures where I watched an exotic bird show and went swimming with dolphins. I also went to Chichen Itza on a day trip to see the ancient Mayan Ruins, it was lovely to see but beware it is a very long bus trip from Cancun and …

... to get pete to come down to the cafe but as we were making a real for the lift we were caught by a nurse and told off. So poor pete is stuck with prowling the room and the floor. Still he did discover that there are pediatrics on this floor - I had thought all the babies were on the floor below. And I forgot to mention a hilarious language incident with the concierge yesterday when Erika was translating the food and courses, luckily Pete and K had our game faces on when Erika. Tried to ...
... cash out, and only Bethan's card had been accepted; although
luckily the next ATM we found proffered cash, so stress levels were high.
The single redeeming feature of city however was definitely the beach. We had
managed to catch blissful glances of the bright turquoise water and white sand,
and so even in the dark we could see how beautiful it was. The beach is the
only attraction to this very odd place. Ironically on ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Temptation Resort Spa Cancun
We stayed at the BBG from Dec 27th, 2002 through Jan 10, 2003. Be forewarned. If you are expecting the Ritz Carlton in NYC, as some of the reviewers seemed to be, you'll be disappointed. However, if you expect a great time, nice weather, lots of yummy food and drinks at a 3+ star resort, this is a great choice! More importantly, if you want to avoid hoards of screaming children, this is DEFINITELY the place! I've stayed at many all inclusives in Mexico, the DR, and Cuba. I would rate this as one of the best. It was the first resort where we didn't have a case of Montezuma's Revenge!
My husband and I love this place so much that we've been back three times. The only people that I've ever heard complain about Blue Bay are the total snobs that wouldn't know a good time if you slapped you in the face. Blue Bay is affordable and extreamly enjoyable. The beach is perfect, the grounds are beautiful, and the staff is the best. Every person at this resort aims to please.
I went to the Blue Bay getaway with a friend this past summer. Usually I research hotels fully, but as this was a rather spur of the moment trip, I thought I might trust the travel agent. Big mistake. I was not informed of a lot of things that I had problems with at this so called resort. First of all, the resort is adults only (16 and up I believe), and I was led to believe this simply meant no children. Wrong. The BBG was full of some of the skankiest people I have ever met in my life. After arriving, we were informed that was a nude pool, right in the middle of the hotel making it unavoidable. Also, the other pools as well as the beach were full of ugly, fat topless people in thongs. I would still have had a problem if it were full of naked beautiful people, because I am a person with morals, but those people were really disgusting. Lots of Euro trash. We also didn't find out that we had to make reservations at the restaurants til we got there, which was more than annoying- you can only reserve them at specific times in the morning, until the get booked up. Buffet food was simply ok. The drinks were awful at all the bars. The only fun we had was at Coco Bongo, a large and entertaining club down the strip. The beach was also awful. You can't tell from the pictures they show you, but BBG does not even have a real beach!! For the most part, you walk down a small section of sand, then have to step over boards to actually get into the water, which looks dirty and just really unpleasant. We spent a lot of our time on the beach at other hotels, some of which were very, very nice. The Palace hotels, and the other resorts near them, were all beautiful.
The Blue Bay Getaway was great! The staff was the funniest, friendliest, and most accomadating people I have ever met. The food and drinks were great. The Beach is nothing to write home about but the facilities were great!
What a mistake! I wanted to save some money. I guess if you have never visited Cancun before or maybe are on a tight budget it would be passable; but, really! The room #1212 had obvious mildew and mold (which I am allergic to), we had no towels for a day and a half, they removed the large tv in our room on day 5 and replaced it with a much smaller one (some one must have bought a time share for that place, therefore they were sucking up), Hector the tour rep was way less than helpful and only interested in selling an over priced tour that you could buy in the lobby office for cheaper prices. Oh, yes, no change in american dollars.....The night before we left I went to the front desk to get change so we could tip the maid and waiters that had taken care of us all week, no change. I only had hundreds and they wouldn't give any change unless I bought the whole hundred in pesos. Also, don't expect the room to be cleaned early in that wing. It was always 3 or 4 before they got to our room.
Went to cancun for my honeymoon in may 2000. This place is great! I love the idea of having all inclusive. Not only do you get a better deal, you don't have to worry about having enough money, it's already pre-paid. This hotel is really nice. If you don't care for a bunch of kids running around, this is the place. Lots of great food, rooms are pretty nice, and there's 2 reserved restaurants included. I really like the bar inside the pool, though be careful balancing your drink. They're always playing great music, and there's lots of activities going on to keep you busy, plus it's free to use a windsurfboard or a boat. Keep in mind you have to get there early, and often it's too windy to go out, so plan accordingly. Don't be surprised if you see a few topless ladies :)
