We booked a two night stay not knowing what to expect! We’re not in the lifestyle but we definitely enjoyed the couples only atmosphere. We had an oceanfront room. The beach was beautiful, although a few times we were approached by vendors selling souvenirs. There was a lot of seaweed but not nearly as bad as Playa del Carmen. The staff was very professional and helpful, and really made the resort experience fantastic. Shorty made the check in experience very funny as he explained the rules and layout of the resort to us at check in. At the main bar (not the pool bar) one evening there was a female attendant that made my husband at least 5 different drinks until he found one that he liked. The food was delicious at the buffet. The night life was also very interesting and many of the guests participated in dressing up for the theme nights. The live band did a rock and roll night performance that was awesome! I highly recommend Desire Riviera Maya to anyone that wants a relaxing, romantic vacation. We have already planned a repeat trip to celebrate our anniversary this December!

Dear Guests, Thank you for giving Desire Riviera Maya a try for the first time, as you mention, you don't need to be in the lifestyle in order to enjoy a sensual atmosphere with your couple. This is the perfect place to connect and take your confidence and sensuality to another level. Thank you so much for the recognition to our staff, it is always wonderful to read that they did a great job pampering you. We can't wait to see you again and celebrate with you in December. Kind regards from all the staff!

This trip to Desire RM has been fantastic! The first day here, we landed as soon as Hurricane Gamma hit. No worries though because Pao, Jazz, Kevin, and Javier kept the party going while CC at the lobby bar kept everyone hydrated. A couple of days later, we evacuated for Hurricane Delta. You could see how sad the staff was when they were telling us we had to leave. They did a great job at helping people find accommodations and ensuring us that our missed nights would be available for our next trip. We were thrilled when Delta changed course and we were able to come back after 2 days. Everyone here was working so hard to clean up and repair damage. They put in so much effort to get the resort back open and we can’t thank them enough for it. Alejandro at the pool and hot tub bars is the man! He kept us entertained, drinks flowing, and the chocolate syrup in stock. Alejandro, the pool concierge, was on top of things. If you needed a towel, a drink, whatever, he was quick to get it for you. Ruben did our photo session and it was HOT. The pictures turned out amazing! He did a fantastic job at posing us, picking outfits and locations, and making us feel awesome. Hands down the best staff we’ve ever interacted with at a resort. You can tell that they love their jobs and genuinely care about the guests’ happiness. We loved this place so much that we’re definitely coming back every year. We’re trying to sell three other preplanned vacations to Sandals so we can come back twice a year. Once you come here, you’ll never enjoy a regular resort again. I can’t wait to hear “Welcome Home” again!

The best part of our visit at Desires was all of the friendship that were made. We met some of the nicest most genuine people. Bartender Adolfo and Abel at the swim up bar were the best. Chef Elias could not have done more. He went above and beyond every single time. And last but not least Carlos and Carlos at the late night bar. Carlos kept the drinks coming while Carlitos cooked tacos and pizza. Hands down the best staff at the resort.

Best service ever on all areas. Spa treatments are unbelievable and they managed the hurricane very calm and professional. All damages were removed incredibly fast and you feel after two days like a normal vacation.

Our first time at an `all included' resort and what a great deal! The entire staff at the Riviera Maya were friendly, eager to help and approachable. The free food with a variety of restaurants was unbelievable, great quality every day and time of day. Access to the beach with pools right near the beach can keep kids (and adults) in the water all day. Great Caribbean water clarity and fish on a reef right in front of the hotel. Also, awesome Mayan ruins within a day's trip. A perfect family spot!
