We spent the first half of our honeymoon at this resort, and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It was our first experience going to a clothing-optional resort, and we felt right at home. Everyone, including the staff and guests were perfectly welcoming and very fun.
The room was great - we had an Ocean front room, and we had a beautiful view. The bed was comfortable, and it was well kept. There was still a lot of construction and repair when we were there as the resort had just opened after Desire took over. The staff did everything they could to make us comfortable even though that was happening. It rained while we were there, and they provided umbrellas to keep us dry walking from building to building.
We were nervous about the food since it's an all-inclusive, but it was actually wonderful. We loved all the meals, and there were snacks in the afternoon as well. And of course the open bar helped - we often drank our snacks! We usually opted for the served restaurant for dinner, and the options were varied and wonderful.
The disco was the place to be every night. There were some fabulous shows & audience participation, followed by dancing. We usually didin't stay long though, and headed out to the amazing jacuzzi afterwards. It was nice and large, which gave you room if you wanted it, and a bar dedicated to it. You could also order snacks to the bar, such as some late-night pizza, that was fabulous.
I have to give a special thanks and huge recommendations to all the staff. They were all wonderful - they got us to participate in volleyball, basketball, water arobics and even a pole dancing lesson by the pool! All the activities were fun, and the staff was amazing. The bartenders and waiters were all great too. They remembered us and our drinks, and mixed up some fabulous concoctions while we were there! I rarely had to actually order my evening margarita as the bartender would send one over as soon as we got to the jacuzzi!
The Jacuzzi and pool were both wonderful, as was the beach-front. The space on the beach is rather small, but we spent most of our time in the pool as we were spending the rest of our honeymoon at the beach. It's an infinity pool, so I got plenty of time staring at the water with my margarita in hand, and thoroughly enjoyed the lounge chairs and small jacuzzi attached to the pool as well.
We did take advantage of the opportunity to visit the original Desire down the road one day. It was definitely a bit different - more people, and less space. But it was fun as well - just a little more cozy!
We loved our vacation here, and will definitely be back!
