We returned from a week-long stay in paradise (aka Desire) on July 14th. This was our first stay at Desire Riviera Maya and we were quite impressed. Everything was first class: the food, the grounds, the cleanliness, the atmosphere, the activities, etc. We have been traveling to resorts in the Caribbean for the past 12 years or so and Desire...

My wife and I have been vacationing at Desire since it open back in 2003, we have seen it's steady improvemt...and the bar on the lifestyle has been elevated to the max by Desire....we can not find anything comparable anywhere else in the entire world. The entire staff is magnificent, the employee /guest ratio is one to one, the service... More

No where else will you find all your needs and wants met to the highest level; the food, service, environment was exceptional. This is our second time at Riviera Maya and I just booked our 3rd trip back early next year. The environment is absolutely erotic and sensual, and it is a couples only resort. We love that, we can...

If you are open to / looking for a wonderful adult get away this is it! The grounds are lovely and clean. The service was perfect - we even found ourselves wanting to know who trained the staff - they were happy to be there.. and were right where you needed them - without being underfoot. The food was good... More

Don't go if you are a prude. Just let go and enjoy you'll keep going back. From the rooms to the restaurants to the beach and Jacuzzi you'll never stop having a good time. While your there visit Desire Pearl also and spend the day. The place is also amazing.

We went to Desire RM for the first time to celebrate our 40th anniversary. It was everything we hoped for and more. We have been nudists (not swingers) since 2007. We wish we had started earlier. In 2014, we went to Hidden Beach Resort and had a great time. The staff and guests were wonderful as was the resort. However,... More

If you are open to nudity, and adventurous enough to enjoy heavy PDA action on the rooftop pool, then you'll love Desire. It's our favorite resort of this type - having visited Sea Mountain Inn (Palm Springs, CA), Mi Amor (Costa Rica), and Desire (not related, but also in Costa Rica), as well as 2 weeks in Jardin d'Eden in...

Awesomeness! Awesome! Everyday was a pool party, nightly entertainment and fabulous dining options. This resort has only 92 rooms so you get to see familiar faces before the week's end. Everyone was so friendly and genuine. The bar staff was swift and attentive. The Sahlo Restaurant is the most sensual ever! The MOST fun was my photo shoot by Breathless... More

This was our first time visiting Desire Riviera Maya and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff are excellent--exceedingly friendly and accommodating. We stayed in the Passion Suite and it was well worth the price tag; the layout of the suite is perfect for hosting guests and for boudoir photography and the spacious Jacuzzi tub with mirrors on two sides is...

Just returned from another fabulous vacation at RM and we were reminded once again how superior the service is at this resort. From the time either Luis and Gustavo greet us with a smile and take our bags we know that all the staff will go out of their way to take care of us. There was one day when... More
