Bottom Line

The 430-room, upscale Temptation Cancun Resort is an adults-only, all-inclusive, topless-optional resort that caters to 21 and over, uninhibited guests. There is never a dull moment at this beachfront property, which features activity-packed swimming pools, theme nights, and risqué live shows. Fun-seeking travelers will find a range of entertainment, six bars, and quality dining options that range from Asian to Mexican. Renovations completed in 2017 gave the resort a colorful, modern design with a futuristic feel. Sleek rooms have balconies, free Wi-Fi, and minibars, but some bathrooms are small. Guests staying in the newer Tower building get access to the rooftop pool and bar, SKY 3.5. The beach area is small compared to other resorts, but shaded sunbeds offer a quiet spot to relax. On the downside, some guests have complained of noise reaching rooms, hot tubs closing too early, and dress codes at the restaurants. For a completely clothing-optional resort, consider Desire Riviera Maya Resort, but be aware that it’s for couples only.

Temptation Cancun Resort

What Are the Design and Scene Like at Temptation Cancun Resort?

This fun and sexy topless-optional all-inclusive resort has a colorful, modern design and lots to keep adults entertained.

Only accepting guests 21 and over, Temptation Cancun Resort is a topless-optional all-inclusive hotel that attracts both singles and couples looking for a fun getaway. So what happens at Temptation Resort Cancun? The sexy atmosphere won't appeal to all, but most past guests rave about the staff-led pool activities and nightly risqué entertainment that includes lingerie shows, theme nights, and foam parties. As rates are all-inclusive, six bars keep guests' drinks full, but some guests have complained that a dress code sometimes requires men to wear pants. Elsewhere on the resort, however, most guests are scantily clad and either participating in the lively fun or seeking tranquility at the Quiet Pool or small beach. More guests are couples than singles, and they tend to be in the 35 to 45 age range, which is a bit younger than the Desire Riviera Maya Pearl Resort and Desire Riviera Maya Resort, both of which are couples-only clothing-optional resorts. The vibe at Temptation is friendly and relaxed.

Renovations completed in 2017 brought a fresh, colorful style and a more exclusive Tower building housing rooms and Sky 3.5, a rooftop pool, bar, and DJ-led music. Buildings have white exteriors with colorful purple, pink, green, and yellow accents, while interiors are done in modern, futuristic-looking decor designed with the human body and sensuality in mind. Expect sensual photo murals, silver armchairs, green egg-shaped seats, lots of curved elements, and bright pops of color throughout.

Travelers wanting a party-minded all-inclusive property without the topless option should consider the Grand Oasis Cancun. On the other hand, couples wanting a clothing-optional resort can look into Desire Riviera Maya Resort, but it's a 40-minute drive south of Cancun's Hotel Zone and it doesn’t allow couples.

What Are Rooms Like at Temptation Cancun Resort?

Bright, modern rooms have furnished balconies and free minibars, but bathrooms are a bit compact.

The 430 guest rooms and suites are divided between the main building and the exclusive Tower (109 rooms) that opened in 2017. All rooms, however, are done in a similar modern style that mimics common areas. Expect a futuristic look consisting of polished surfaces, minimal furniture, and colorful accents in patterned wallpaper, bathroom panels, and rugs. All have floor-to-ceiling glass windows and doors that lead to furnished balconies with either garden or ocean views. On the downside, some guests have complained of thin walls and compact bathrooms. Standard amenities include powerful air-conditioning, minibars, coffeemakers, flat-screen TVs, electronic safes, alarm clocks with Bluetooth, bathrobes, slippers, and hairdryers. Bathrooms have rainfall showers and quality toiletries, plus some units add whirlpools on their terraces.

Tower rooms have access to the building's rooftop pool and bar, plus they gain additional perks such as swag bags, free adult TV channels, an exclusive room service menu, and free calls to the U.S. and Canada.
