We have stayed at 2 other nude resorts in Cancun and enjoyed this one the most.
Hidden beach is a good drive from the airport, beach had tiny shells everywhere making it hard to walk, one restaurant on property, and you were approached everyday on the resort by the spa staff wanting to know if you wanted a massage. I don't know about you but if I want a massage, I make an appt. Staff was friendly. You could go to the resort next door and eat at their restaurants.
Desire RM is a really good place to stay, especially if you are in to "the lifestyle." We are no,t but still have had great stays at this resort. The staff is Excellent! Lots and lots of beach beds. rooms are nice, four restaurants, disco decor is nice, but the music played is not very good and it's the same songs every night. This is also true for the Desire Pearl disco. If you like to go for long walks on the beach, this resort cannot accommodate, but most couples that are there aren't interested in the walks, and that's okay. If Desire Pearl gets booked up next time we want to go, we wouldn't hesitate to stay at Desire RM.
Desire Pearl have very nice spacious rooms. If you want a quiet room they are on the property. Evaristo was our butler as well as Carlos, they covered the day and evening shift and always checked on us everyday. We are not demanding guests, but they always checked on us.
The pool is very big and lots of space to walk around without feeling like you are going to end up in someones' lap. Swim up bar is always a plus. If you go right on the beach you will end in Puerto Morales, if you to left, you end up walking past numerous resorts. Plenty of beach to walk on.
There are only two restaurants on the property, one is very casual, the other is only open for dinner and dress code is a little more strict. Food is average, lots of chicken and pork dishes. It would've been nice to have some hot pasta dishes in the casual restaurant for dinner. The casual restaurant staff needs more training. You would seat yourself, and sometimes you ended up waiting on yourself too. For instance, in order to get coffee a waiter has to bring it to you, two mornings we never did have a waiter come to our table to offer coffee, and were unable to draw there attention. Juices are self serve but coffee is not. Also, the lady cook at the grill in the am where you would order pancakes, omelets etc. would take your oder and then turn around and give it to someone else. It happened everyday, unless you were willing to stand right in front of her blocking other people, which isn't appropriate. At Desire RM the staff in the restaurants ran like a fine oiled machine and the food was better. I would like to mention that Roger and Miguel did a good job at the casual restaurant. Again, need more staff and training at the casual restaurant. Be sure to spray for mosquitos at night or your lower legs will get devoured.
We have never participated in activities at the previous resorts, however, Jessica, Jovani, Inge, and Charlie were hard to say "no" too. We had a great time participating everyday and appreciate their efforts to provide poolside entertainment. Ebe and Marvella did a great job around the pool. Probably one of the most demanding jobs on the resort. Victor took care of your chairs every am and provided towels for the day, great job! Jorge at the swim up bar did a great job as well. We ended up going to Yoga every morning on the pier with Lisa from Wisconsin, she was our instructor. She was wonderful. She will be back several times during the year so if you get the chance, check it out.
Disco was small and rectangular which made it difficult to accommodate everyone for the evening shows, if you wanted a good view. Decor was very nice. Music was not good. Same songs played every night, Pitbull, Shakira, Jennifer Lopez, etc. The music played out at the pool during the day was better than the music played in the disco.( I know it's hard to please everyone but I would say that it was a common complaint from other guests.) It seems like the same DJ at Desire RM was working at Desire Pearl. Mix it up, check with guests to see what music they want to hear and dance too.
We met some really nice people while we were there. A few were there for 'the lifestyle,' they were pretty easy to spot, but overall, most were there to soak up the sun in their birthday suit.
