“The best hotel ever!!!”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

The real all inclusive, and the best hotel. The restaurants are amazing, and all the staff do everything to better serve the guest.The beach is wonderful and parties are fantastic.
My wife and I would like to thank every minute we spent at Desire Riviera Maya.We have to mention a few names like Sylvia, Rachel, Edimundo, Raphael, Jorge, Africa and Ines, because these employees ennoble the quality of the Resort.There is no comparison between Desire Pearl and Desire Riviera Maya. We loved every minute on the Riviera Maya and never will put our feet in Pearl Resort again.We'll be back as soon as we can to the Desire Riviera Maya.

We recently made our first trip to Desire RM and we had an amazing time! Although we had never been there before we were greeted at the front door with a "Welcome Home!" from the doorman. After spending a week at the resort we can only agree with what everyone else says about the amazing staff. They work tirelessly and truly do an incredible job making sure you are having the time of your life. I wish I could remember everyone's names because they were all fantastic but C.C., Afrika, and Eduardo are a few that really stood out.

There are obviously thousands of beautiful resorts around that world that you can visit but there aren't many that provide a clothing-optional environment that is as sensual (and sexual) as you want it to be. This is not to be taken as a complaint or knock on Desire but you could certainly find other resorts with better food, better rooms, and a better beach. However, Desire RM provides an adult playground for those with an exhibitionist or voyeuristic streak in them all while remaining very classy thanks to the couples only designation. If you are just looking for a vacation with the freedom to be naked but you aren't interested in exploring anything sexually then this can be the place for you as well. Desire RM is whatever you want it to be!

We had a blast at Desire and will certainly be returning home again sometime in the future!

Room Tip: We stayed in 2313 which was on the second floor of the building in front of the tennis courts and ne...

We just returned from another trip to Desire - as always the service was first class. From check-in to check-out all the staff seemed so accommodating and willing to help.
The resort is always being maintained and is splendid in a small and comfortable way - it has a very cozy feel.
As always it is the people that make the resort what it is and create the sexy Desire vibe. The entertainment staff was very energetic - Emy was our favourite.
The staff are also very fun and always smiling. One of the bartenders Elijer(sp?) would remember what we ordered from the day before and would hand it to us before we asked - such great personal service.
We are planning our next trip!

We just returned from our first trip to Desire Resort in Cancun (we stayed May 10-12). What an amazing experience! We were stunned by the beauty of the resort as well as the sensual atmosphere.

The staff was wonderful, and addressed all of our wants and needs. The food was delicious and the portions were the perfect size. The drinks were tasty and plentiful.

Our room was wonderful. The bed was comfortable and the view was perfect (Garden view room).

After a few minutes at the pool we became adjusted to the clothing optional side of the resort and joined right in. There were all shapes and sizes and the age group was mostly 35-50. We met so many new friends and really enjoyed the energy the resort provides.

The hot tub area was incredible....oh the things we saw (and the things we did, too....)

The nightly entertainment was fun and we enjoyed a lingerie show the first night and a really good live band the next night. The disco afterwards each night was a lot of fun. We danced the night away.

So many good memories were made. We will return as soon as we are able.

We have visited Desire RM three times this year. We are fortunate enough to travel frequently and have, after seeing many places, chosen this to be ‘it’ for us.

This is a lengthy review (sorry)……and very over due! As mentioned in previous reviews, it is the people that make this place. Every single person we encountered was sincere, hard working to make your stay perfect and genuinely happy to see you!

Ok, here goes:

Resort – Beautiful. It is a little older but updated and immaculate. We work while traveling so Internet is a must. It has been consistent, strong and available pretty much everywhere.

Service – Out of this world! Everyone remembers you and your preferences right away. They literally run to do everything they can to make you feel at home. Even when I am scantily clothed or not clothed at all, I may as well been wearing a parka while talking with the staff, they are very respectful! Words cannot explain how amazing these people are!

Entertainment – The thing I love about this team is that they work tirelessly without being pushy, and have something for us to be involved in throughout the entire day-AND evening! Even if you don’t participate, they are personable and fun to talk with. They are very good at judging the crowd. Some days it is quiet where Pool Jenga and Sexy Darts are fun (alcohol makes things a lot more accurate…just saying)! Other days there are full on obstacle courses, pole dancing and lap dancing lessons. There is beach volleyball twice a day as well as other water sports. The pool is fun but not overbearing. Sometimes there is a live band that will come in. That can be a bit louder but there is always the beach if you prefer a quiet getaway. The ocean is beautiful, warm and perfect for swimming. Paddleboards, Hobi Cats and scuba diving are also available.

Fellow guests - This honestly feels like a bit of an anomaly to me; everyone is very open and genuine. We had some of the deepest, most interesting and funniest conversations with perfect strangers and have made more friends here than anywhere throughout our travels. Have I mentioned this was all while naked and was totally comfortable? We had dinners, happy hours and pool side get togethers and met new people constantly. It is a very friendly, unpretentious and safe place. Everyone is respectful of space as well if we wanted time together.

Food
-Breakfast is buffet style; fresh fruit, in house baked goods, made to order eggs. Well, anything you want right down to Mimosas and Bloody Mary’s!

-Lunch is also buffet style. There is always a fresh grill to order any kind of meat; burgers, steak, chicken etc.. There is a different station every day to keep it interesting. Some examples are sushi rolls, salad rolls, crapes, burritos, bbq day, ceviche…the list goes on. Salads are always available.

-Dinner, yummy! There are 3 places to eat.
There is a buffet with a different theme each night.
Sahlo is a beautiful a la carte dining experience with a large selection (Caesar salad is very well presented and yummy) Lobster dinner is amazing! It is more traditional fine dining vs. Suki, the sushi restaurant.
Suki is my personal favorite. There is a great selectionas well as a variety of cooked food. Very healthy and delicious! The Tepanyaki (Hibachi) is a lot of fun with a group! (note: long pants are required for men in the evening restaurants)

Room service is 24-7. OH! The late night pizza… seriously delicious!!!

Jacuzzi – Well, this is something else. Anything goes. Anything. It is upstairs form the resort and private. I can be a bit shy but it is for everyone and I felt very comfortable. I do find myself being a little bolder here as no one finds anything to be out of the ordinary. I look forward to Jacuzzi happy hour after a relaxing day at the pool☺

Spa – Small but good treatments. There are a few ‘special’ massages. We tried one and it was something I am very happy to have done;). The gym is small but has everything you need for a decent workout.

Theme nights – I have gone from ‘crazy all the way’ dress up to the opposite. Either way, it’s really fun and the entertainment staff is always there to boost it up!

There is a professional photographer Jonathan who is very good! I have not been brave enough try this out, but I have seen the results of his work and the photos have turned out beautifully. If this is something you have thought of doing, this is the place to do it!

Experience – No matter what your preferences are, there is something for everyone here. From the adults only aspect to clothing optional to anything goes. It is a place to truly get away and just be you. A place where people will remember you and treat you like family, staff and guests alike!

For us, there is no place like Desire RM.

I do have to mention a few people who are memorable:

As mentioned above, the entertainment staff is awesome! Edgar has an awesome demeanor and does the best belly dance I have seen in the lessons, well next to Coral! :), Memo is very creative and Jay fits in perfectly! The girls, the girls! Vanessa, this place would not be the same without her spunky personality and awesome presence on the microphone. Emily is so sweet, THE best lap dance teacher! Coral and Tiara are also so nice and fun to get to know:)

Jorge and Rafael are our butlers. AWEEESOME! Really, these guys are wonderful! They are always around if we need anything. Rafael even went out of his way when my husband wanted to get me a gift that was not available on the resort. On his own time, he went into town and found exactly what my husband was looking for! WOW! There are also other butlers who aren’t assigned to us (Gustavo and Luis) who still ask if there is anything we need☺
Our housekeepers are always amazing. Lupita is usually ours. I love our morning Spanish lessons!

The servers are so quick! We usually sit in Daniel, Leo or Jorge’s section. They have the most incredible memories! Ivan, Jesus Jesus and, oh I can’t remember his name starts with an 'S', they all go out of their way and remember my special order!

Serigo and (I forget the other guys name) are the ninjas who deliver treats and champagne to our room. If they see us, they ask if there is anything extra we need and ensure we have enough when we have happy hour for our friends.

One last person I need to mention is Silvia. The Queen of poolside bar service! She is awesome. So nice and fast!

Thank you Desire RM family! We miss you and can’t wait to return!

I just want to say that I really enjoyed Desire Resorts. My husband, Neil and I have travelled to both Desire Riviera May and Desire Pearl for many years now. We are part of the swinger lifestyle. The resort is very clean, the staff is friendly and the beaches are so gorgeous!

In my opinion, Desire offers the best value for your dollar when traveling. It is also very easy to fly to and close to the Cancun Airport in Mexico.

The food is excellent, nudity is everywhere and the nightlife is great!

Without a doubt, my number 1 adult resort pick!"
