"Lo mejor de Playa del Carmen"
Muy amena, todo impecable, espectacular y genial, de verdad la mejor relacion precio valor y la mejor ubicacion. Es el mejor hotel BoutiqueGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The beach was barely cleaned and the quality of the services was random. The buffet had very limited choices and always the same food. Regarding the customers (couples) it's mainly US and Canada. Do not expect to meet couples who are into sports or exercise regularly. Most of them were overweighted.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Desire Puerto Morelos"
Trata-se de um all-inclusive exclusivo para adultos/casais. É um resort com bastante recurso, excelente cozinha onde se desfruta de total liberdade, o que restringe o público a que se destina. Nada obstante aconselha-se a fazer reserva com bastante antecedência. Os funcionários se excedem para tornar sua estada a melhor possível e ninguém é obrigado […] a fazer nada que não queira.

"OMG! Another great trip to Desire Riviera Maya."
12/16/13 couplenindy Indiana
The group: We found a travel group called “Party Naked Baby” online and booked our trip with them. We prefer to travel with groups because we enjoy the pre-trip chat sessions and like to get to know people a little before we get to our destination. This group was awesome! Our hosts Tony and Sue planned a lot of fun extra activities while we were there. We will definitely travel with them again! Our room: We splurged this trip and booked an ocean view room. We stayed in room 2502. The space between the bed and the closets was very tight, but that was the only negative thing about the room. Through our double French doors, we could see the ocean through the beach beds that line the beach in front of the resort. The room was very clean. We had a wonderful maid that made up crafty figurines with towels and flower pedals on most nights. The room had a white tile floor, a comfortable bed, and a refrigerator (stocked with water, soda, and beer at no additional charge). There was more storage than we expected. The bathroom didn’t have much counter space, but there was a nice area under the vanity to store our things. We had a roomy walk-in shower that could benefit from a stool or bench. There was no tub. The resort provides his and her robes to use during your stay. These come in handy for evening trips to the hot tub. There are plenty of towels for use in the room. There are also plenty of nice large towels available at the pool and hot tub. Overall, we were pleased with our room. Dining: We tried most of the options offered by the resort. Breakfast is in the main buffet every day. They offer cook-to-order eggs or omelets plus a variety of vegetables, fruits, cereals, yogurts, and a few Mexican options. Lunch is at the pool-side café “Tentazione” which offers a full salad bar, a grill (where you can choose chicken, burgers, fish, steak, or fajitas), and a buffet with cheeses, chips, guacamole, plus some hot entrees. Tentazione also offers table-side Panini style sandwiches. Very few people ordered them, but when we tried them, they were delicious. There were three restaurant options for dinner: Suki, Arrecife, and Sahlo. Our favorite restaurant was Sahlo. Sahlo had a romantic atmosphere, wonderful service, and the food was excellent. Arrecife was the main buffet. The theme changed for the main buffet daily, offering a lot of options during the week. Suki offers Asian fusion plus two Teppanyaki grills. I believe reservations are required for the grills. The sushi at Suki is surprisingly good! Men are required to wear long pants for dinner. Beside for the Teppanyaki grill, reservations are not required for any meals. The service was wonderful at all restaurants! Room service is available for a small fee. We did not order from the room service menu. Entertainment: The resort provided entertainment throughout the day. Early in the day, the entertainment staff led various events like yoga, water aerobics, water volleyball, and beach volleyball. Later in the afternoon, they sometimes hosted games like music trivia and bingo. One afternoon, there was a fashion show where models paraded around the pool in outfits that could be purchased in the gift shop. Each evening after dinner, some form of entertainment show was provided. The evening entertainment was sometimes held in the patio outside the lobby. Sometimes the entertainment was held in the disco. Dress: Most people hang out around the pool during the day. The dress code is very casual. The pool area is clothing optional and the majority of people there are nude. When they are wearing clothes, men tend to wear cargo or board shorts with short sleeved shirts, while women tend to wear sun dresses, shorts, bathing suits, or just wrap up in a sarong. You must be covered to dine poolside for lunch at Tentazione. A cover-up or bathing suit is fine for this. For a more laid back day, there are lounge chairs and palapa beds on the beach. The beds can be rented by the week, but are available for day use if not rented. Nudity is allowed on the beach in front of the resort also. Many guests participate, to some extent, in the theme nights. Guests usually dress for dinner and then change into their theme outfit after dinner. This is the time to dress sexy! My favorite themes this trip included the foam party and pirate night (which was a theme planned by our group). Pirate night was so much fun that people not with our group told us they wish they had brought pirate costumes too! The foam party was fun, nude, and sensual; but the floor became really slick. A friend with our group hit his head pretty hard after tripping over something hidden by the foam. Other Services: The resort offers full spa services and a gym, but we did not use these services. There is also a desk in the lobby where you can book tours. We had friends who booked tours here and they had a great time, but we did not use this service. Overall, we love Desire Riviera Maya! It is a fun, sensual trip. We made great friends and had lots of laughs! The only reason we will not be back next year is because we are going to join "Party Naked Baby" at Desire Pearl in November!!
"Best lifestyle hotel in the world"

We had a great time during the sdc.com takeover event. 114 couples from all over the world get together in their yearly takeover. Desire offers a perfect balance of great food, adult entertainment, friendly staff and off course the Sdc family. Will be there again next year

We visited Desire RM from our booked stay at Desire Pearl and ended up switching to RM for as long as they had rooms available. We liked RM better as soon as we got there. Everything was great except for all the plastic beach chairs and pool chairs. The chairs are full of black spots which I assume to be black mould within the fabric and the fabric is stretched to a point where there is 0 comfort left and there are no cushions so you get sore fast if you lay on these chairs for too long. Pearl has much nicer chairs. RM has a better disco, better restuarants and an outside grill area so that you eat your lunch outside and has a nicer night bar area to grab a drink. We did the time share thing and almost signed up for premiere membership for an extra $13,000 for 350 nights. The 13 only gives us the premiere benefits for 350 stays. We wasted a lot of our trip going through this process because just before we signed I asked why they did not honour the 50% off on our upgraded room when we moved to RM as we were premiere guests and in the contract we are entitled to 50% off when we upgrade to a better room if it is available and it was. There excuse was that a regular garden view would have to be available, we would book that on a technicality and then upgrade and get 50% off, so now we are seeing the kind of crap they can pull. On top of that they lied because a couple we knew came over to the desk 10 minutes later looking for a room and they got the last room for which was garden view for 2 nights, so they had the room and lied so that they did not have to give the 50% off only 25%. Subsenquently as my wife was signing the 13,000 she crossed her signature out as we told them they lied and we knew it so they lost our 13 grand right there but they still stole our extra 900 dollars we had to pay for the upgrade to be able to move to RM. Other than the check in lying to us and the old mouldy chairs the resort is awsome as there is no where else to go. We may try Hedo 2 however, after our experience but the rest of the resort is awsome. Hedo is trying a couples take over so we may try that. The theme is great and best of all the people at the resort are awsome. The staff was excellent, best service we ever had. The resort is spotless except for the chairs. I find the beach better at RM but still it is not a great beach but still nice enough. The games were great and so was the entertainment. I would still recommend the resort as there is not much choice for this type of theme. I believe once you try it, you get addicted to the theme, it is just a lot of fun that you could only fantasize about at other resorts.
"3rd Times a Charm"
11/25/13 Travel2much4work Washington DC, District of Columbia
Like many who travel to Desire, we are repeaters. We love the resort--we have stayed in the basic rooms all the way to the passion suites (sometimes changing rooms in the middle as an upgrade from the hotel management). Although not fancy, if you have been to others--this doesn't compare to other lifestyle resorts. The food is great. We have eaten at all 3 of the evening restaurants---our favorite is the buffet. We always do a sushi night, a fancy dinner with lobster/steak to celebrate a special occasion. We end up at the buffet most nights and meet up with friends from the day for dinner. Much more flexible for groups in the big palapa. We were at our 9th time in Jamaica before taking the plunge in Cancun...and we are so glad we did! We have met amazing friends at each trip from all over the world (as well as locally) and love the openness of the people. Talk politics...talk desires...talk family...just talk! People are not pretentious or stand offish. We encourage you to engage in the games during the day...meet your beach chair neighbors...play some volleyball...and sit at a table with people you don't know. Practice your Spanish...or learn another language. This place is as some say--Fantasy Island--except it really does exist. I just keep waiting for "Tatu" to show up! We use the fitness center daily. It is basic, but does the trick. We always get a massage or two while there and the experience is worth the extra cost. The staff are unbelievable! Accommodating and truly there to make your vacation one you won't forget. From Silvia at the pool...what would we do without her? When she has a day off--we all know it! If you haven't experienced a resort like this---give it a try. No pressure. Go at your own pace. We all had a first time there...and most of us come back for more. It is our home away from home. Be prepared for rain--it usually goes away. Our visit this October--it poured for 3 days straight. Unusual from our past trips there.
"Wish I could Say 'Fabulous'..."
11/25/13 tropica0810 Minneapolis, Minnesota
We just returned from our 6th stay at Desire and I wish I could say it was wonderful, but it left a little to be desired... The service in both restaurants for dinner was poor. We made reservations at Suki for the 9pm seating for the grill and weren't able to be seated until 10am. While the host apologized, we were rushed through the meal because the staff couldn't leave until we were done. We went back the next night and had bad service again. I agree with other reviewers that the new resaurant is way too noisy and needs some sort of buffer on the ceiling. I did LOVE the burlesque that was playing there! The food was not well seasoned anywhere. As always, the pool and Jacuzzi were great! Also... the new addition of the foam party was off the chart GREAT! We've never had more fun! All in all, it was a nice time, but it is definatly different than in prior trips.
"Green Eggs and Ham"
11/20/13 Luna-Bar Buffalo, New York
When my husband first suggested Desire I told him I can try anything once. So off we went with a good bit of excitement and even more trepidation. That was two years ago. I was 50+ years old with more than a few extra pounds. We had never been to a clothing optional beach and we are not in the lifestyle. It took me 45 minutes to strip and a good while longer to be comfortable naked but by my second day I knew I wanted to go back. We recently returned from our 4th trip (one was to Pearl) and I have to admit that I like it - A LOT. I do not go there for my husband, I go for there me. Its just relaxing and fun. Going back has also encouraged me to lose those extra pounds. Not that I had to do this in order to fit in. There are all ages and sizes at Desire. It is a place where you can wear anything you want to dinner or theme nights and nobody gives you a look which says "I can't believe you are wearing that." Instead you get sincere compliments on your outfits. I feel sexy wearing clothes I could never wear at home. It is like being on Fantasy Island. Everyone is there to have a good time. There is also never any pressure. You can cover up if you want, but, trust me, you will find yourself comfortable enough to take it off. The beach is only okay as there is a lot of seaweed. The pool, however, is crystal clear. The resort is very pretty and the service and entertainment staff are exceptional. What really sets the resort apart are the guests. They are just so friendly. We really enjoy meeting new people. Because it is a small, couples only resort it is easy to mingle. This last trip was our first time during a "takeover." Other reviewers have warned that the swingers form cliques, but we did not find that to be the case. While many of them have known each other from past trips, we never felt excluded. My husband chatted with anyone and everyone. The one thing I would say about a takeover is that the action level goes from XX to XXX. What goes on in and around the hot tub is hard to describe. It may have been too much for me if it had been our first visit. You do not have to go to the hot tub if public displays offend you. In fact, there are quite a few guests who do not go to the hot tub or the disco and still keep coming back. The resort has amazing energy and vibe. It is an addicting place and we are no longer interested in going to other resorts. We did manage to garner enough courage to tell a few of our friends about Desire but the wives are all too modest to go. That is why my husband says he has the best wife. If I had been unwilling to try it we would have missed previously unimaginable experiences and great vacations. I feel like Dr. Suess's Sam I am ...trying to get someone to try green eggs and ham.
"why would you go anywhere else?"
11/12/13 jerolim09 ny
the best period....why would you go anywhere else? I will tell you why to go somewhere else? you don't like to be naked, you don't like a sexual erotically charged day and night. you don't like meeting new people from all over the world. you don't like great service, great weather, and you are basically a stick in the mud. if you don't like the above, don't go, but once you try it, you will never go anywhere else....we just got back and cant wait to book our 4th trip....if anyone has questions please email me.....
"All that we Desire..."
11/09/13 A62chv Michigan
This was our first trip to Desire and will not be our last. We arrived the end of October and left just prior to Halloween. We split our vacation time between Desire and Temptation and wish we would have spent the entire time at Desire. The resort is located in a fairly secluded area about a 30 minute cab ride south of the Cancun airport. Two security checkpoints are passed before arriving on the grounds making us feel very safe. The resort property is small, compact, and very well maintained. Lush with grass, trees, and flowering plants we found the grounds to be beautiful. The pool area was very well maintained and staffed with exceptional people. The beach was beautiful, totally clothing optional, with staff raking up debris that had washed up overnight. There was considerable space between resorts here allowing nice walks down the beach. There were occasional 'passers by' that were walking from other resorts but not to the extent that we felt we were being gawked at. Desire is a very comfortable, classy, and relaxed setting. Our room was directly under the hot tub area facing the ocean. The room was beautiful, clean, and the housekeeping staff was excellent. The party meter at the hot tub was often pegged and we did not feel like it was obtrusive to our room or rest. We would stay in the same room again. The hot tub area was a blast. There were racy activities happening in the tub but if that sort of thing bothered someone they definately were at the wrong resort. The swim up bar and sexually charged atmosphere made for a great time, especially after dark when looking over the resort and sky from the roof top location. There were people of all ages, shapes, and sizes. We are in our early 40's, in good shape, and appeared to be the average guest. Some younger and older couples but 40 to 50 seemed average. Most were nude by the pool or on the beach during the day. Most men dressed up for dinner and women dressed sexy. We talked to allot of couples from all over the world and found all to be exceptional classy people. There is always one guy who is a jerk, (why always from Quebec?) but he was not bothersome because he was extremely outnumbered. The food was above average with exception of the beef. The beef cuts were all average to poor. The baby clam bisque and mushroom cappuccino with white truffle foam was outstanding. Food and staff all get high marks from us! We tipped for exceptional service and will bring more small bills next time to reward the hard work individually. Take time to go to the lagoon bridge and see the crocodile. Stand on the bridge and clap loudly. We clapped for about 90 seconds and from the back of the lagoon came the 6 foot crock! He swam right up to the bridge with within 6 feet of us. It was awesome! We wanted to give him a snack but signs posted indicated it was against the rules. We still feel bad for not getting him a little something for his efforts. Desire is laid back and classy where Temptation is spring break and vainity. We now would like to compare Hidden Beach to this place.........Desire is going to be hard to beat!
"Some Changes at Desire Since last May"
11/07/13 Kana L Vancouver, Canada
We returned from Desire this past October and found there were a number of changes made to the resort. Our arrival and check-in was still very pleasant. We were greeted warmly and many of the staff recognized us by name which is always nice. Our check-in was very quick and our requested room was ready and waiting. After dropping our luggage off we went to the lobby bar where we had a few very strong drinks to start our vacation. After hanging at the bar for a bit and meeting a few new friends we went to our room to get dressed for dinner. We went to Suki's for the first night. The dinner was pleasant and the staff was very friendly but wife said the red curry beef was tough. My dinner was fine and I had no complaints. After dinner we went back to the lobby for the evening entertainment. We noticed that many of the entertainment staff had left. Lovely RaLuca, Carly, Cesar, Black Magic, Jesus, Alberto are all gone. Vanessa is still there and she is still wonderful but she is not getting a lot of help from the new staff they hired. The evening shows were definitely not as fun or high-energy as they were in the past and sadly, we were a bit disappointed with many of the new staff they have brought onboard in this regard. The nice restaurant (Piacere) underwent a remodel and was re-branded while we were there. It is now called Sahlo. The interior furnishings were changed and they added a new large screen TV to the restaurant playing Burlesque videos. We found the TV to be a bit of a distraction and prefer if it wasn't there. The restaurant is also VERY noisy as they have removed the soft ceiling and replaced it with mirrors. (Bad choice!) The sound bounces off the walls and ceiling and on a busy evening you can't hear yourself talk! I am pretty sure they have received numerous complaints about this already. The menu also changed a bit. Not a big change but one of my wife's favorite appetizers was removed from the menu (along with the Serdena Grouper which I loved). I imagine it might take a few months for them to finally settle on the menu for the new restaurant. The rooms have been slightly upgraded. There are new pillows, new robes and new TVs in the rooms. As before, the rooms are small but we hardly ever spend any time there so we don't mind. The daytime activities did not seem as high-energy as before probably due to the new entertainment staff again. They still offered lots of things to do but we spent most of our time on the beach palapas during most of our stay. The disco was still fun but they really could use some new music. Getting very tired of listening to Maroon5. Grace is no longer making pizzas all night. They have a new person doing this. He is quite quick but he puts a LOT of cheese on the pizzas. You might want to give him some direction if you prefer less cheese. Finally, I have say that Alejandro, Gustav, Luis, CC, Africa, Gerrado, Candido and all of the breakfast staff are all just as fantastic as they were before. You won't be disappointed with their service. All in all, we had a great time the resort really needs to sort of the issues with the entertainment staff to get that energy back into place. We are confident they will listen to their customer base and make the necessary changes to keep us coming back time and time again.
"Amazing time but we still have the but."
11/05/13 latinos28 Oxnard, California
Review from 10-23/10-30 We have been to Desire property since 2005 and about 16 times. We have return back because of ambience, the lifestyle, concept and some of the staff. Sadly we seen the owners cut back more and more each yr but yet they raise the price by 5-10% yearly. For paying 200-1000 per night the least they can do is have top shelf alcohol for the people and even better alcohol for the premier members and much better cuts of meats for dinner. By no means do I think the managers at the hotel are the issue I do believe they do the best they can with what they have. So if you choose this hotel make sure you don't have the expectation of a four season many of us have giving the hotel 5 start because of the amazing fun we have and the great people you meet and what the staff is willing to do for you. Please take 100 in ones and give them a tip they always work super hard. Ok now the the juicy stuff. Desire is just a magical place once you get into the groove let things flow you would have tons of sexy fun nobody makes you do things or pressure you. We don't consider our self swingers but we sure are open minded and let things flow. Make sure to look at the theme nights calender take part in them at least the lady counter part you guys will have a blast. Don't forget to visit the playroom at night while the disco is popping and the jacuzzi lounge after hours and late night pizza at the lobby We had 6 out of 8 days with rain and we still had a blast.
