We visited from the UK and stayed for 14 nights, so we really got to know the resort and experience the romantic ambience. This was our first visit to a Desire resort: we had a great vacation and met some really interesting people. The resort is exactly as described on the website.
Our ocean-front room was large and relaxing with a big patio door onto a balcony with a magnificent view. The door had a fly screen so we slept with the door open and air con off. This way we could hear the waves breaking on the shore - very peaceful and romantic. The bed was king size and extremely comfortable. The room, like everything else in the resort, was kept spotlessly clean. The bathroom looked totally new.
The beach is wide by Caribbean standards, with plenty of loungers, beds and shade. Seaweed wasn’t a problem; it was raked away at least twice a day. At no time were we approached by vendors and people walking past weren’t a concern to us.
Service levels were outstandingly high. All of the staff were friendly and exceptionally helpful. After just a day most knew our names, the bar tenders had our favourite drinks rowed up on the bar before we asked and the beach guys knew exactly where we wanted loungers and towels set out in the shade. And the Jacuzzi guys always put towels on the bed we wanted, late into the night under the stars. We took time to talk to the staff, heard interesting stories and learnt something of real life in Mexico.
Breakfast and lunch were consistently good; lunch usually was a choice of both buffet and a la carte table service. Dinners were less consistent; though most were excellent we felt the staff were a little overwhelmed at times. Because occupancy was low, there was only one restaurant open. But a second one opened the day we left that had been fully refurbished and looked great.
There was a wide range of decent drinks, including Grey Goose, Tanquery and Jack Daniels in all the bars. However, there were only two choices of red and white house wine at lunch and dinner - a wider selection would be good.
The main pool is big with a “games” end and a “quiet” end. The Jacuzzi is 35 feet diameter, with ever changing underwater lighting. At night it takes on a sensuous, erotic ambience. Both pool and Jacuzzi were exceptionally clean, and both have swim up bars. The only problem was mosquitoes; if you use the beds by the Jacuzzi at night you must spray with repellent first - we got badly bitten one night.
Day time entertainments were well organised by an enthusiastic team. If you want to join in - great; if not, no-one will hassle you. Evening entertainment was good, with at least half the ladies dressing for the evening’s theme, though never the men! (The nightly themes are all on the resort website). Unfortunately, the disco plays exactly the same techno tracks every night: this doesn’t cater to the majority age group, so the disco empties fast as people head to the Jacuzzi.
The clothes optional aspect of the resort means exactly that, with some guests visiting a clothes optional resort for the first time being a little shy and wearing swimming costumes. The dress code for the restaurant and disco is also whatever you want - with some ladies wearing very short and see through dresses and some wearing cocktail dresses. The majority of guests were not in the lifestyle. There was never any pressure from those that were - they were all very friendly. We had a great time with people from the US and Canada, from South America and particularly those from Mexico.
Finally, we had the couple’s sensuous massage. This was a really special experience and highly recommended - the best ever!
