Very cool resort. I was not sure what to expect but very happy we went. Very low key atmosphere and very friendly crowd - some experienced and some not. No pressure "to perform" at all. Very fun filled days and nights. Certainly not what we expected but better.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great place! (This is so incredibly stupid of Expedia to require a minimum of 5 0 characters in this field before they will allow me to rate this hotel.)Genuine Expedia guest review
Reviews we read were reasonably accurate. Not over the top, but something for everyone.Genuine Expedia guest review
"2nd time even better:)"
This is our 2nd time here within the last 6 months and getting ready to book again for October. They are running a special stay 4 nights get 4th night free which we will definitely take advantage of. We love the fact that when we are here, Desire Pearl gives us an environment to reconnect as a couple in a upscale passionate setting. Your experience […] can be whatever you want it to be. We are not in the lifestyle and had no issues being approached or shunned. The other guests are great and in the 2 trips everyone makes you feel comfortable. Clothing optional, sand, water, sun, drinks, passion, great service...what is not to like? What a great vacation...again! A couple of shouts out to Jared & Victor to always finding us a pool/beach lounges, Jonathan & Graciano for being the best waiters there, Jose and Eduardo for great bar service and Jessica and Julienne for their nonstop energy as EC's.

"We liked Desire Pearl better than Desire RM"
We were 4 couples who went to Pearl the last week of January. We have stayed also stayed at the sister property RM several times before. We like this property better. The food and the rooms are better. The landscaping is nicer and more tropical. We prefer the hot tub here since it is larger. The pool is nicer and it has a swim up bar. It has fewer rooms […] so it is not as crowded. The staff (entertainment and restaurant) are great, but they are also fantastic at RM. If all you want is "in your face action" then you should pick RM. But, if what you desire is a classier type of "fun" then you should book Pearl. The most important factor that I did not mention is that our "women" like Pearl better! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The road to the hotel is really bumpy so I wouldn't recommend renting a car to reach the hotel. Besides they don't have a proper parking lot nor experienced valet parking service. So it's better to hire a taxi or arrange for a shuttle. We spent one weekend at the hotel only. Since arrival all was okay. The Staff, not a problem all trained and happy […] to serve. We are. Couple in our mid 30s but felt like teenagers as the crowd there seemed more like mid 40s to 50s and scattered 60s, However they were very nice and relaxed. Being a lifestyle hotel and being out first visit to this type of hotel we felt a nice private atmosphere all around but also felt like just a normal hotel. As for the food, I should say that is not the best. They should improve in their vegetarian/vegan options, if they want to stand out from other resorts maybe they can do better on this. Facilities are not the most impressive. Some seem old and a bit of maintenance wouldn't be bad. I think that Rates are not comparable for the assets they have which some seem old and worn out (though all functioning). Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Female Client POV"
I booked, paid for, and decided to take my fiance on a romantic trip to this resort. The pros are the room, the grounds, and the overall beauty of the location. Very romantic place. The con is the friendliness and the ability to provide good customer service by the staff. The poolside chair reservations are confusing and when we finally got one it was […] given away. We were treated very rudely by the person who gave it away and told to move without a solution being provided. This was embarrassing and annoying. After I suggested he provide us with other seating he continued to passively argue with my fiance about the issue. Even though I was the sole person associated with the reservation I was ignored by the office staff on many occasions and all questions were directed to my fiance as if I didn't exist. Also, there was a timeshare pitch given during our trip that was very annoying. No one goes on an "all inclusive" (it wasn't exactly all inclusive because of the optional menu and charges for various other services) vacation in order to be hammered about buying something. Beautiful place but I can't say I will be booking another trip there in the future. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Another great trip!"

Was peaceful and what I was looking for.food was wonderfulGenuine Expedia guest review
The resort was very nice. The service and the staff was excellent. The entertainment staff tried to keep everyone engaged in the activities available. Dinning was beach side and very nice with a beautiful view of the coast. We had an all around wonderful experience. We were upgraded upon arrival to a master suite. The room was more than we expected. […] The resort is right on the beach and they work hard to keep it maintained. The people were friendly as well. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice view and close to the beach"
Booked the master suite originally but upgraded to the master with plunge pool when we arrived. The room was awesome! Huge space with a beautiful patio with chaise lounge by jacuzzi. Definitely worth the extra upgrade. The staff went well beyond to accommodate. I would definitely recommend to a friend.Genuine Expedia guest review
"No TAN LINES"
This is our second time going, we love this resort! The staff is amazing, is always extremely friendly, as if they were your own, very personable. The food is also very good, good selection. Though we were hardly in the room, it was always clean and had plenty of amenities that we never used! Great experience, we will definitely be going back soon!Genuine Expedia guest review
"better than other desire esp for 40+ crowd : )"
Great resort, staff work hard, but can be quiter than other resorts..., but there's something special about Pearl... finally it appears that a resort that is attracting the 40+ that act, feel & look much younger; Hope it sticks because i know there are a lot of us & more to come : ) Nice beach & plenty of shade. Breakfast, lunch & especially dinner […] better than most all inclusives; late night snacks were a little weak / room service is $10 flat rate but food was weak. for a little change of pace, you can walk to little town just down the beach, We have been to all The Desires & other lifestyle resorts and we would consider Pearl the best for now, especially for the slightly more mature group.

"Desire Pearl Review"
The place is amazing for what it is, nudests and lifestyle couples We have never been to a resort like this but felt very comfortable being naked. We had the standard oceanfront room and it was much larger then expected, it was very clean and nice. The staff was very nice and attentive. The food was great and the drinks were great. The only negative […] was that the age group of the people seemed to be very late 40s to early 50s. This was a negative since we are in our late 30s. The night life was a bit quite at Pearl, but we went over to the Riviera Maya 2 of our nights. The night life over there is awsome. We would definetly go back but maybe split my time between the two sites. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Was a nice enjoyable stay. The rooms could have a nicer cleaner feel with a little effort. Other than that it was great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very Nice and upscale!"
Everything about the hotel was nice. The only drawback for anybody less than 45 is the age of the crowd. Definitely a more senior crowd, with a few younger folks sprinkled in. All in all, though, the stay was fantastic.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Fun for couples"
We have just returned from a 7 night stay. The resort is amazing, would definitely go back. Every part of the resort is spotless, including the beautiful beach which is raked every morning. The rooms are perfect, we stayed in a junior suite on the ground floor which had glass sliding doors opening onto the pool. The entertainment staff were amazing. […] All the staff were wonderful, so polite and friendly. The food was fantastic. Only two restaurants so if you stayed longer than 7 nights you may get tired of them but we did take a taxi to the other Desire property for dinner one night. The other property is not nearly as beautiful and I personally preferred the more "refined" guests at Pearl. We are not into the lifestyle but were not bothered by anyone, everyone was just extremely friendly and we had a great time. The age group was probably from 30 upwards. We were lucky to have perfect weather all week. The resort was about half full for the first five days then on the weekend it did full up for valentines week. Being full made it a bit more lively but I really enjoyed the quieter time too, i think in that respect we were just lucky to have a great group of people. Evenings were fun, they do put on a small show each night and usually have a local band playing before the show. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

The last night we were the last coupled seated and I couldn't even eat the meal it was so bad. Breakfast was good. The hot tub was cold. Everyone was complaining. The property is nicer than DM if they fixed the […] food and hot tub we would go back. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

I cant say enough about Desire Pearl. It was the first lifestyle resort we have been to and we loved it. The staff was over the top. The service you get there was second to none. From the pool porter Jarred (outstanding) to the fun director Paloma it was a trip we will never forget. If you had any issues they were there in a flash.

Stayed for 8 days and had a great time. Staff is awesome, especially Jessica and Larissa in activities and Rudi and Enrique in the restaurant.

We like to stay at this hotel because of its special features. Hope they can have more idea in daily activities especially night time.

"Another perfect holiday"
09/02/14 Uklondoncands London, United Kingdom
And so we return from another perfect holiday at Desire Pearl. Last year my husband and I had an amazing 11 days and could not wait to return and so this year we was there for 2 beautiful weeks. Firstly we would like to say a big thank you to the whole staff, they all work so hard and are always happy, they couldn't do more for us. They all were so amazing but in particular we say thank you to: Ebe who was always ready to bring us our favourite drinks, Victor who made sure we had beds by the pool, Victor in the restaurant who is such a gentlemen, Graciano who knew what we wanted for breakfast every morning, Veronica in the beauty section and for the father and son whom we cannot remember their names, these but specially the father were such nice people, they worked behind the bar and always knew what drinks we wanted while we were at the disco and finally the entertainment staff such as Jessica, Charlie, Vince and Ana they were all great - Ana is simply amazing, she gave us a cream to put over the Mosquitos bites and was always checking wether we were ok. Anyway we both love it all and being our second time it made us feel more open and comfortable and again I have to say that if we think we are close to each other this places unbelievable bring us even closer again. We met lovely people some of which we will never forget :) The only criticism we would say is the night entertainment / music has to improve, people only stay for 30 min to 1 hour and disco is over. We both feel that something should be done about the sand flies around the pool and beach as this was the only thing that left a sower taste but saying that we managed to get over it and so overall we loved it. What more can we say, last year our goodbyes were very emotional for me and just when I thought that was a one off, there I went again, as soon as I got in that car on our way to the airport i got emotional again..... Is that tight feeling in your heart and all you can think of is those lovely moments i had again with my wonderful husband. See you again next year :)
"First time at Desire Pearl"
09/02/14 Steve C
This was our first trip to Desire Pearl or to a CO resort so we were nervous at first. Staff is absolutely amazing, food was excellent, grounds were kept clean at all times! Out of 26 yrs of being together...almost 21 yrs being married this was our first vacation ALONE....so here it goes! 1. Overall, the people you meet are remarkably nice and open to conversation. Maybe it’s that without clothes some pretense is lifted or that it’s really kind of ridiculous so there’s a “We’re all in this together” attitude, but we found it remarkably easy to find nice people to chat with and make dinner plans with. 2. Stock up on high quality sunscreen and aloe. Seems like common sense, but there’s parts of you that will see the hot Mexican sun that have never seen any sun at all and they charge $40 for spray on in the resort lobby!!! 3. Cancun airport. Customs was fast and even courteous. Bu then there’s the “Running the Gauntlet” when you’re heading out to get your transfer to the resort. Professional looking people are literally lined up on the along the hall edges as you are headed to the airport exist. They’re aggressive and misleading. Don’t engage, head right out the door and find your prescheduled shuttle. 4. Be there for the foam party. It’s like the resorts Christmas party for adults 52 times per year. It’s the biggest, most elaborate event the staff hosts, and not being there to participate is missing a very memorable and fun part of your trip. 5. Lifestylers should probably look more to the other nearby Desire property, Riviera Maya. There was certainly some Lifestyle hook ups, but it’s not a big part of the Pearl crowd. Most everyone is respectful of couples wishes and there’s no pressure, either direct or implied. We did not encounter one issue and that was a big concern for both of us since neither are not in the life-style and this was our first CO trip! 6. Tips are important. Yes it’s all inclusive, but the staff works really hard and they are beyond nice. A little bit goes a long way. If you’re from the US, get some $5 bills. They’re less bulky than $1 dollar bills, and you hardly ever just give out $1 anyway. Give the bartender a few bucks in the tip jar once a day because you’ll have no pockets (or pants) most of the time. I never thought to tip the hard working entertainment staff and wish I would have. 7. Reserve a pool chair before breakfast. Hand the guy's (Jared and Victor) who takes care of the chairs and area by the pool $5 in the morning and you’re set all day. I think most of the nicer chairs are near the bar part of the pool. 8. The hot tub is hot. No, the water temperature isn’t much hotter than the pool actually, but the activity there is hot. There’s some fun in the late afternoon, but it’s the 11 PM onward time slot that people start feeling amorous. Don’t go there then if you don’t want to enjoy the show or put on your own. We spent a few times in there but if it got too crazy we would roll on over to the pool. The far end away from the bar has a place you can sit, watch and listen to the ocean.....that was really nice!! 9. Do the sensual massage and/or the Erotic Dinner. The massage was pretty steamy and the dinner is one of the best investments. You eat dinner on top of the Aphrodite just you and your spouse....they even provide a bed if you want to enjoy other things!! Was very nice!! 10. Don’t plan to buy much, if anything, at the resort store. $40 for spray-on sunscreen? Really? And while the clothes for the theme nights were great, they were ridiculously priced. Pearl needs to rethink what they’re doing with this part. There are several websites you can buy inexpensive clothes and use for the theme nights. 11. Seven days was just enough time there. It’s a long, expensive way for most of us to get down to Cancun, and Pearl is so much fun you won’t want to leave anyway. Stay for a minimum of 5 days. 12. Getting naked is like taking off a bandage. Just do it right away all at once and get it over with. Within 10 minutes you won’t even think about it anymore. I waited a few days before I took my bottoms off as my wife was not really into it. She stayed in her bikini's mostly but did go topless a few days!! That was an awesome surprise!! 13. There are all body types. So need to worry....go and enjoy your time together!! 14. Hit the gym, loose a few pounds, or just start becoming healthy inside, mostly because you’ll feel better about you. No one will know where you started; this is more for your mental well-being. 15. The dreaded time share discussion. It’s completely optional. Next time we will just decline the coupon book and enjoy our time!! 16. They pour a strong drink, and the booze is quality. Pace yourself, particularly at the start. Same can be said about the food. We enjoyed every meal. 17. The actual physical property is maybe a 3.5 or 4 out of 5 stars. They could upgrade the rooms pretty easily, but they’re very clean. We had a Jr Suite and spent little time in ours anyway. The grounds and pool area, restaurants, club house etc. are well maintained and very pretty. The atmosphere is beyond 5 stars, and that’s what you’re really paying for. 18. Last but not least.....get ready to want to go back as soon as you can!! The staff at the Pearl is the best most awesome set of people I have ever been a pleasure to meet!! I think I was in a depression for about a week when I returned!! Hope this helps!!!
"1ST AUGUST-16TH AUGUST"
08/30/14 ludiandsteve kiev
Hi all, we had read alot of reviews before we arrived at desire, this was our 1st vacation to a nudist optional resort, we not swingers or anything of that nature, and was never pushed into anything we didn't want, the staff would always ask politely if we wanted to join in on any activities, and if we said no, it was always followed by a smile, and maybe some other time, ok lets get started, on arrival 3,30am we were immediately given our room and the night porter, delivered our bags and showed us around, we opted for a master suite, (far to big) nearly 2 of everything, we woke up pretty early, went to breakfast and was greeted by victor, who politely asked our names, and never forgot them the whole time, giving us our table asking what kinda eggs we wanted, and in general making sure we were comfortable in the restaurant, Next we went to the pool and yet another victor, he got us nice beds and seemed to try his best to get us umbrella's when ever available, only on 2 occasions they had been moved, but he did try his best, trouble was there just wasn't enough to go around, the entertainment staff have the easiest job in the world, everyone there wants to have a good time, and it makes there life so easy, pool water games are fun, and the rules are a little bias but that makes it more fun, around 4ish we would head off to the hot tub, always hot and nice and we would have the time to relax before everyone left the main pool at 5 and joined in the hot tub, i had read the reviews and read how friendly guests were, but couldnt believe how true this was, no matter what colour, culture, size, or shape you were, it did not matter, everyone got on great, around 6-7ish we would head off to shower and change for evening meal, Everyone, PLEASE TRY THE SURF AND TURF DOWN IN THE RESTAURANT, BUT YOU MAY BE BETTER OFF SHARING 1 BETWEEN 2, HUGE LOBSTER AND FILLET STEAK, OK YOU PAY $30 DOLLARS but your on holiday, dish out a little, after dinner we would head off to the main reception area where there was normally live music, and this is where our only problem happens, MOSQUITOS, ITS NOT THE HOTELS FAULT BUT I WOULD ADVISE ANYONE GOING TO BRING PLENTY OF STRONG REPELLENT, and after bite lotion, once the entertainment was over we would dress up some nights for the theme nights, mostly the women got dressed for this, C'MON guys were letting the side down, its great idea for breaking the ice, as we can and did laugh at each others costumes, after the live show in the disco we would head back to the hot tub, as the Dj is probably the worst i've ever met, average age is around 40-50 and all he play is techno, everyone had the same idea, either hot tub or reception bar, as for the swinging side, as ive said we are not swingers but we seen quite alot of action, and it does get you in the mood for your better half, i am in my 40s and this vacation made me feel 25 ahh the barman are great bunch of guys, always smiling and nothing is a problem to them, as for tips, we tipped but it is not needed, its entirely up to you, service does not change, its all good, some people were tipping expecting to jump the que, but to no avail, the guys know who is next, ok summary, its a great place, in fact the best place we've ever been, go opened minded to everything, if your the type of person who judges, and moans about the slightest thing, then dont visit, if your open minded and care free on vacation then this is the place, last thing We read No means No and everyone understood this who asked us and it was never taken with offence, great staff, and guests, see you 26th september

My wife and I just spent 7 days at Desire Pearl and loved it. The rooms and grounds are amazing. The food is good but that's not why we go there :). The staff at Desire resorts (I've been to Desire RM also) is second to none!! They cater to your every whim. They feel like they are my friends! That's how good they are!! Entertainment stuff is lots of fun too! I just love this place and will be going back as soon as we can!!!

I am an atheist, but being here with my georgious wife is as close to heaven as I will ever get! The staff are unbelievably respectful and we have met some wonderful people. If you are an open minded couple then it is the place for you.
When we arrived at pearl we had already had 2 weeks at moon palace with family. We put them on a plane in cancun, waved bye bye and set off for pearl. As we drove off my hubby said "it feels like we're coming home"! We arrived at pearl and the first thing the concierge said was "welcome home!" I nearly cried! It is our 2nd trip to Desire Pearl. My husband had always said he wouldn't go to the same place twice, he now says he doesn't want to go anywhere else ever!!! We have met some fantastic people. We are not swingers, but we have had some really good fun this year, especially on the catamaran! (thank you Horjes!!!) The staff are amazing! Our particular faves are Paloma, thank you for all your organising; viktor, who sorted us out at the pool every day; Ebbe for being so smiley with her service, Bar man Jorge with his dry sense of humour; little Omar who can't do enough for anyone; Juan for ensuring my husband was never without a beer in his hand, Gustavo for the best service ever during our stunning anniversary meal on the roof terrace (thanks for organising the full moon to shine!) and all the entertainment Staff, you have so much energy! Especially Ana! And my gorgeous Adolpho for organising fab trips and being the best hugger / kisser ever! We love how all the staff are introduced, appreciated and thanked by the pool each week, particularly all those that behind the scenes making our stay so wonderful. I am crying writing this. We go home in 2 days and WE DON'T WANT TO GO! One thing is for sure, we will definitely be back next year!
"Wow that was great"

Original Resorts has got it right in Desires Pearl. Beautiful grounds, excellent service, excellent food and great rooms. The female half is celiac and chef Nicolas went above and beyond to create gluten free dishes at every meal. They served the best gluten free pizza she has ever tasted. Everything was wonderful except for the sand flies (we call them sand fleas in Canada). If they like you there is nothing you can do to stop them. There is no repellent that will deter them. There are mosquitos but they were nothing compared to the sand fleas and we never set foot on the beach! If they don't bother you at home then they probably won't bother you here but be warned - bring Benadryl cream and tablets as it was what got us through ten days of itching. We are hoping that a new Desires will open in Cabo as we understand that the flea problem is not an issue on the west coast. The one negattive is that if it is a rain day then 90% of the TV channels are in Spanish -a few more English channels would be aporeciated. All-in-all we would recommend this resort to anyone who wants top drawer service but be aware that the bugs may be an issue.
"Our New Favorite Desire"
08/11/14 Mia D Savannah, Georgia
We just returned from our 4th summer trip to Desire, but our first to Pearl. We had visited Pearl during the day in 2012 and thought it was beautiful, but had some concerns - we were wrong: In 2012 & 2013 the occupancy rate was low and we know that the people can make the experience - this year for the majority of our week the occupancy was 100%. Due to the size of the pool and the jacuzzi, we didn't think it would be conducive to the friendships and connections that make a Desire vacation so special. We made more friends this year than any other year. The beauty at Pearl for those who are not interested in being social, is they can escape to a quiet respite. And for the one day I did not feel great, I was able to be away - but it was very sweet that evening when all of our new friends wanted to know how I was feeling. We loved the staff at Desire Riviera Maya and did not think Desire Pearl could live up to their service and attentiveness. The Team (Family) at Desire Pearl are committed to making sure that every guest is enjoying themselves. A few to mention - Victor, the Restaurant Captain, the entire entertainment staff, especially Ana & Koko, Fabian at the Lobby Bar, Jared the Pool Concierge. The staff goes out of their way to answer your questions and to learn our language. We were very impressed on the day that Enrique announced every staff team and had them stand around the pool to receive applause from the guests. Many people commented that they had never seen that done at any other resort and the ratio from staff to guest was less than 2:1. Where Desire Pearl clearly exceeds Desire RM is in the food and the room accommodations. Every meal was enjoyable and when Victor knew how much we loved the Pan Hojaaldrado at breakfast, he made sure there was plenty available on the morning that we arrived at breakfast almost at closing! The rooms are beautiful, very well maintained and the ocean breeze is quite welcoming. Once again, we have returned home reenergized sexually, more connected as a couple and already talking about our trip next summer, back to Desire Pearl, of course!!
