While at Desire in RV we came to Pearl & spent a day and liked it enough to give it a week try. We stayed 9/23-30, 2012. We really enjoyed it.About 30 min ridr from airport. Quick, easy & friendly check in. It was at low capacity so got our room right away. Rooms are spacious, beach is good, pool is very big w/ swim up bar and hot tub is huge! The food was ok but I understand they're working on it. Would like to see more variety. Drinks were good. Disco is cool although the playroom is only hidden by a curtain; not a door. It's a bit smaller than Desire RM. But, I like the set up in the disco. The shows we made it out to see were pretty good. I like that the staff has "Off" they let you use for the mosquitoes; which were out full force. There is a huge pond in front of the lobby and the fountain does not run continuously. Although it's pretty, it's a breeding ground for mosquitoes. I hear they are taking the pond out and replacing it w/ other items like maybe beds, seating, etc. This would be good. My favorite food night was Mexican although my husband's was Sushi. :) Staff always asked if we needed anything in our room & was quick to get it if we did. Staff was very friendly; all of them. Carla was our favorite waitress & Juan our favorite bartender. And of course, we can't forget the entertainment crew (EC). They were great. While there, 2 of them were leaving to go off on other adventures & 2 new ones were coming on. If I had any complaints/issues at all it'd only be the room service. One night I did order pizza and 1 1/2 hours later it hadn't arrived. My husband called and 10 min. later it showed up but was cold & wrong pizza. I didn't end up eating it. At least they didn't charge us the room service charge. I'd love to see an outdoor pizza oven like they have at Desire RM. That truly is one of my FAVORITE things about it. I can't wait for midnight to get one of those fresh, hot, out of the oven pizzas! :)
One other thing I'd like to mention. Before, the resorts offered a shuttle back & forth at no charge. Now they do not. It's about a 15 min ride between the two. You have to take a cab which runs you about $15 each way. That's not a big deal to us. However, when we got to Desire RM to meet some friends for dinner we were told in the lobby at Desire RM that we could only eat in the buffet restaurant and if we wanted to eat in the other 2 we'd have to pay a $25 fee. I was very disappointed w/ this. These are sister resorts. It should be in writing somewhere (brochure, websites) that if you visit Desire RM you'll be charged to eat there. But, paying a $25 fee AND a $30 cab ride for a total of $55 plus any tips you leave isn't justified. They really should either offer the free shuttle or allow you to eat for free. I can understand that if they are at full capacity that they want their guests to have first dibbs at the restaurants but state that somewhere for other guests to see.
In ending, we are already booked to return to Desire Pearl in June 2013. :)
