Our 5th visit and it gets better. Staff is amazing from the time you pull up until you leave. We were immediately greeted by our Butlers G and Candido, and they leave you wanting nothing. We are easy folks and don’t ask for much but I don’t think they’d ever tell us no. Amazing service. Our room is right by CC, our bartender primo! She is so lovely and has never made a bad drink. Everyone loves her and it’s easy to see why. Her beach staff cleaning the seaweed, Felipe, Joel and Luis have a thankless job clearing the seaweed but they do it with a smile (under their masks). Beach time never disappoints. The amazing Africa never lets us lift a finger. We had a lovely beach side lunch- she took care of everything. We just need her to get rid of that Packers stuff :). At the pool or other bars, our buddies Alejandro, Daylan, Carlos are always ready. Jorge and Luis standout- lovely young men. Happy to call them friends. Poolside service from Daniel is always a blast. Celso in the buffet and Izmeal and Jusef in Sahlo made dinners a treat. We love banter with these guys and they make our dining experience memorable. As does Mario in Suki. On our last night, Candido asked if we wanted something special. We asked for a paella dinner and Chef Elias and Sous Chef Cristian delivered. My goodness what a treat and the food was the best paella ever. Manager Guadalupe and Hostess Eunice made the evening flow beautifully. Lastly, Elena the hostess at breakfast and lunch always greets with a smile and Edna in the spa was so helpful with cold towels for the steam room. We LOVE the steam room. And of course Daniel and Paulino moving hundreds of towels a day at the beach and pool. These guys hustle. As you can tell, you love the people of Desire. They are why we come back and why we tip so well. We appreciate amazing service and everyone delivers, every. Single. Time. We will be back time and again. We cannot think of a thing we would change. And we didn’t even mention the amazing sexy atmosphere at Desire. It’s anything you want it to be. And it’s everything we could ask for.

Lots of fun. I love being at the resort! I love the games and exercises in the pool. I also really like the streching at the beach bar in the morning. The show and bands at night were great. I give this resort a 10+
