Well, we have just returned from our second trip to Desire. We were there a little over a year ago and, although we never thought it possible, we may have had an even better time this trip.

The service has really improved. For example, both years when we checked in we asked for an extra set of sheets and blankets. Last year it took an effort to have this request fulfilled. This year we checked in, went for dinner, and when we returned to our rooms the sheets and blankets were there. This services in the various bars and restaurants was excellent. The resort should do everything it can to keep the current service and activity staff. It is hard to point out one person when everyone was so good, but Carlos at the lobby bar deserves a special mention.

Food was very good. It is a buffet style for breakfast and dinner, but there are always fresh choices at the grill. Of the two specialty restaurants. we preferred the international one. We had no complaints about the room.

Now to what really makes the resort, the people. We met some wonderful people and made some true friends. We really like the fact that there is so much social interaction. You can easily meet and talk to most anyone there, something that just would not be possiible at most resorts. Altough everyone is friendly, most people tend to gravitate towards people with similar interests and smaller groups will naturally form. A warning though for those considering Desire, it is a lifestyle oriented resort so you must be comfortable around that activity, whether you participate of not, or else you might want to consider another resort. We did talk to a few couples that seemed to have booked without the realization of what might go on there and they seemed quite uncomfortable.

Overall, a great vacation and we have already put down a deposit to return for Halloween week. Thanks to the wonderful people we met (C&B, C&W, A&P, M&F, and C&M).

Desire is what you make it and it can be everything you want it to be. Of course, nudity is the rule rather than the exception at Desire but I actually saw some people who never undressed while there. If public nudity and occasional public ----- aren't your cup of tea, don't go to Desire. If you're alright with it, however, read on.
The service--The service at Desire was impeccable. From the front desk to the bartenders to the food servers, the staff was extremely accomodating and happy to serve the guests.
The grounds---The grounds of the resort are extremely well kept. The entire property is very beautiful. The pool, the beach, the common areas are all very scenic, relaxing and beautiful.
The food---The food is very good. Probably not excellent but you will not be dissatisfied with the quality of the food which is much higher than many resorts.
The rooms---The rooms were less than I expected. Our ocean front room was well situated on the beach but the room was slightly run down and the shower had very little water pressure. Also, there are not bathtubs, only showers. I don't mean to say the rooms were bad because they weren't. Just a little less than I expected.
The atmosphere---Very ----- and erotic. If going to Desire doesn't get your motor running, nothing will. Although many swingers go to Desire, you will be comfortable even if that is not your bag. There is no pressure to do anything you don't want to do. The first rule of the resort is "No means no." Most of the people are naked during the day and most start out the evening dressed. The au naturel jacuzzi lounge is a great hangout. It is mild during the non-peak hours and wild during the peak hours. The disco is nice and the playroom just off the disco isn't for the faint of heart as you will surely see ----- activity in it. I'm a relative newcomer to the au naturel experience but Desire is just the place for persons willing to take the plunge. It is "couples only" so there are no single guys to wreck the fun. My girlfriend and I enjoyed ourselves immensely and would go back in a minute. Desire is a place for free spirits and persons in love who want to connect to their mate. If you ever said to yourself, "Just once in my lifetime, I'm going to go to one of those resorts," go to Desire. You won't be sorry.

We were at Desire with the "New Horizons" group last December for 9 days and have booked again this year for 15 days. We think it is a wonderful resort for couples in the lifestyle. Rooms were nice enough, beach was wonderful and food was outstanding. Service was beyond belief. Very erotic and full of ----- tension. Would highly recommend Desire for those couples experienced in the lifestyle. It might be a little to much for those testing the waters. All in all it was a wonderful experience.
