The previously written reviews nicely cover all of the technical things we have to report about Desire Pearl. The exquisitely prepared food, the spotless rooms, the gym & spa, the nightly entertainment, the grounds keeping and the bar service are all top notch. This review is about how my husband and I ignite the passion that we have with each... More

I want to report that the trip was horrible and that you should not go but I would be lying to keep the place a secret and keep the price down and that would not be fair to the wonderful hard working management and staff. This type of hotel is not for everyone but if you like; • Really good... More

It only gets better with each trip back to Desire. Other reviews have focused on what the Resort is like and how the Clothing Optional, Lifestyle Friendly format works, so we will endeavor to explain why we are addicted to this vacation paradise and why we return time after time. What is the same? Fabulous staff who makes us feel... More

This boutique resort is small, intimate, lush, romantic, and overtly sensual. The service from the staff is exceptional. Food is good. The bars stocked with top shelf brands. But these things can be found at nearly every couples only resort in the tropics. What makes Pearl different? It's clothing optional for starters. It's also "lifestyle friendly". But that doesn't mean... More

This was our first trip (4 nights), we shall return. Tip for the guys, be sure your testosterone levels are adequate or you may have trouble keeping up with the wife’s demands. The atmosphere is everything you have probably already read about. It would be wise to have conversations about your expectations before making the trip. We chose to be... More

Traveled to Desire Pearl for the first time in June. We had been going to the main resort, Desire, for many years. My impressions are that Desire Pearl should not be compared with the other resort, because it is smaller and laid out differently. I thought the qualify of attention in all of the restaurants by the staff, was superior... More

When choosing a location for a 6 day get away with the wifey I had many options to choose from. The Pearl seemed attractive due to the fantastic reviews and ability to watch my wife get an incredible tan without the tan lines and maybe see a few others doing the same. After long winding cab ride from the airport... More

Third trip back to Desire. It keeps getting better each time we go. Kinda late with this review as I did not realize that I neglected to do one. Fidel in the restaurant remembered our names and made the effort to come right over with handshakes and hugs. We love this place and what it is all about. We decided... More
