We just got back from a 5 day getaway at this beautiful resort. Our first visit we hung back from the "activity" and just watched. This trip, we decided to become more involved. Everyone is sooo respectful of each other and we really felt comfortable being a part of the "action". Thank you to all the staff, you are so... More

We have been to Desire Riviera Maya twice before, but this time we booked a few days in each property. I got asked A LOT for comparisons between the two, so I thought I'd post my impressions here, on the entries for both resorts. Which is best? Depends what you want from your holiday. Pearl is definitely the more upscale... More

We were at Desire Pearl last November and had a great time. The staff was excellent, the service was outstanding and a great time seemed to be had by everyone in our group. There was some construction going on at the back end of the lobby, but the interference was very minimal. The entertainment staff was up and moving a... More

This was our first trip to Desire Pearl. We have been searching for a clothing optional vacation that was romantic and first class property. We read the reviews and decided on Desire Pearl. The resort has 88 rooms which allows guests to have an opportunity to know each other better than with the massive resorts. We met so many friendly... More

I promise you that once you have read this review, you will be able to make an informed decision and your gut will tell you whether or not, Pearl is the right all inclusive resort for you and your significant other. My husband and I have never dangled (dangle= to hang loosely and swing or sway to and fro) our... More

Taking a clothing optional vacation was nothing we took lightly and did a lot of research here and on other sites before booking our trip to Pearl. We had about a month to prepare for the trip and started talking to a few people on chat boards during that time to get a good idea of what to expect. That... More

This was our second trip to a Desire property. We previously stayed at Desire Resort & Spa Riviera Maya. The Pearl was by far our favorite. The food at any one of the three restaurants was excellent, as was the wait staff.We did not leave hungry.All staff personnel were very friendly and polite. The pool was spacious and staffed by...

This was our second trip to a Desire Resort and our first trip to stay at Desire Pearl. We could probably sum up our opinion by telling you that we have already booked to return after only one month (in February)!!! My previous trip report was more philosophic, describing mood and emotions, so for a change of pace, I’m going... More

This place is smaller, tamer, and a little older crowd than its sister property down the street. The hot tub here is larger and nicer. All meals are a la carte and there is no buffet at dinner. We have stayed several times at both places and prefer Pearl. If anything could be improved, they need to heat the pool... More
