This was our third trip to Desire. Every vacation there has been a blast!! We highly recommend it. It’s Disney for adults. We never want to leave to go home. It is the MOST peaceful, restful, fun vacation we have ever been on.
The staff at Desire work very hard. The resort is amazing because the staff make it the incredible place it is. They make sure everyone is relaxing and having a good time. The grounds are kept immaculately and although the rooms are all different (so we’ve heard from a lot of other guests), everything in our room was very clean.
We want to mention a few people that went out of their way to make our stay incredible:
Sylvia – She’s terrific – working the entire pool bringing cocktails. Sylvia will bring you another drink before you have an empty glass.
Afrika – Afrika works the beach area getting drinks for everyone. She’s awesome and quick.
Ace – Ace works the lobby bar making the best coffee, cappuccinos, lattes and cocktails. He has such a great personality – telling us his drinks tasted so delicious because of the love he puts into them lol.
Argos – He got our bags to our rooms in that heat. For a naked resort, we seem to overpack. He also made getting a taxi quick and easy when we decided to go into Cancun for shopping.
Even though we mentioned the above resort employees, we don't mean to take away from the other employees that were wonderful during our stay there.
We had such a great time with our friends – and even met some new ones along the way. The nice part of Desire is that most people are very friendly and not clickish. People are there to have fun and most are very outgoing.
There were some differences at Desire this time that we want to mention. They are still pushing the timeshare. No means no. If we weren’t interested during our last vacation, we probably still aren’t – so please don’t ask us to speak to one of your representatives. Also, another resort is being built next to Desire. We weren’t getting much information as to what kind of resort it was going to be – and it’s going to be right up along-side the beach bar side. Very disconcerting for us since it will mean not so long naked walks on the beach if the new resort is family-oriented. We suppose time will tell. Another thing we want to mention is that the last three nights of our vacation, the air conditioner in the Disco wasn’t working. It was cooler to go outside. And lastly, we want to mention that the amount of entertainment around the pool in the late morning/afternoon was drastically different. Not really much going on – which is so different than in years past. We hope that will change in the future.
We also have to mention that there was one group at Desire during our vacation that was very clickish and exclusive – which we have NEVER seen in our previous trips there. The group’s name is Gen-X and they consisted of couples in their early to late 30’s. They weren’t very friendly except to people in their own group – which was a shame because it’s not the usual environment at Desire. They at times behaved like college spring breakers – getting drunk and acting like teenagers. We will not be booking again when this group is vacationing there.
