Recent guest reviews

Everything was perfect. The pool, the beach and the staff were so amazing. The rooms, food and recreation was simply perfect. Love my trips to Desire.

If you want to be treated like a king and queen, go here

Great hotel and location. Had the perfect room with nearly 180 degree view of the ocean. Staff was excellent and accommodating. We will definitely stay again.

Top level service! The Life Guard actually went to the store to buy my wife skin cream (out of his own pocket) for a bug bite rash. We did not ask him to do this. A worker noticed my wife and I heading to the room after spending some time in the hot tub beds. He asked us if we wanted room service once we got back to the room. We placed our order with him and a short while later he was in our room, set up a late night snack literally in our bed for us (as we laid in bed), got us drinks out of our fridge, and did everything short of feed us by hand! Wife and I joke that this is the only hotel on earth that offers 'post-coitus' room service. Can't wait for the next trip! There was only 40 couples there during our stay, so the staff to patron ratio was at least 2:1. The personal attention was top level.

Awesome trip! Everyone was very helpful! Would definitely recommend!

Hotel staff was EXTREMELY polite and attentive! Very please with the service! Need more of a social life at night though.

Food and rooms are top notch. Music in the disco and the hot tub both are issue areas for this resort

This was our first stay at this resort for my wife and I, it was also the first time at a c/o resort. It's true what other reviews said where it doesn't take much before you feel comfortable naked, it took about a day before my wife was comfortable enough to take off her bottoms. Were both in our mid to upper 30's and my wife is petite and very very attractive to say the least yet never at any point did anyone ever make her or myself feel uncomfortable, a majority of the guest were older with a few younger couples mixed through out the crowd! As for the service, it's nothing but 5 stars across the board, they made you feel like Gold and couldn't have been more respectful. Now for the bad parts, Breakfast and Lunch at aphrodite was really good but Dinner couldn't have been any worse. When it came to Breakfast and Lunch they had a buffet at aphrodite and the food choices along with the quality was very good. Dinner on the other hand was terrible because it seemed to us as if they tried way to hard to make it romantic and high end but it was anything but. First off the dinner menu was very limited, We unfortunately ate italian in Mexico on Sunday night, Monday night and Wednesday night, Tuesday night was French? They rotate the menus between Aphrodite and Pearl while making subtle changes to them. My advice to Desire would be that you keep Aphrodite as a buffet for dinner and keep Pearl as sit down and order, this way people can decide where to go and what they want. Last thing would be Four pieces of advice to others planning on going, The staff never gave us a tour of the place and there were things that my wife and I didn't know about until our second last day there, a few of those things were 1) Take advantage of there great gym and spa services 2) Between lunch and dinner they have a little food stand setup outside aphrodite where you can snack either pool side and or beach side, they also have a menu during that time where you can order food and have it delivered pool or beach side, 3) Do not to waste your time walking to Puerto Morelos and buying anything because all they do is harass you and solicit you, plus it's mostly junk, 4) If you want a 1 hour massage for cheap ($35 USD), walk towards the Excellence resort which is torward Cancun and they have stands setup along the beach and they give great massages for the money. My wife and I really want to go back but because of there poor quality and dinner selection were still not sure, right now I think were going to take our money elsewhere unless they make some changes, regardless where we go next, we now have something to compare it to.

We LOVE this resort! It is small/intimate so you get personalized service. All rooms are ocean view and pool, bars and restaurants are close by. Staff is exceptional! Food is, too. I expecially love yoga on the pier each morning with the breeze in our faces and the sound of the ocean below us.

The staff was very friendly, and we had a blast at the resort.

This is a great place to have a couples vacation. Exciting, fun, interesting people, and great service.

The staff and services were exceptional. Great place if you are trying to explore new and exciting endeavors in your relationship. There is no pressure from anyone and you can participate in whatever you feel comfortable with. My wife and I already can't wait to go back and do it all over again. Our stay there was fantastic from beginning to end.

We had another great stay at Pearl in June. The staff as always made the trip fantastic and we enjoyed all the resort had to offer - even played pool volleyball!! (a first for me!) ) The Food was excellent as usual although the service in the Pearl restaurant was a little slower than last visit. Great friends, great fun!

The perfect place for loving and erotic couples. We enjoyed being pampered by the hotel staff as well as each other. All out fun adult games and music or just alone on the quiet beach. Plenty of food drinks and erotic fun. A place u can be u, cause nobody cares.

We can never get enough of this place and always so sad when we have to leave. Our third time to the resort and our second Fourth of July stay. What a great time it was. We met over 20 couples from our previous trip. This resort attracts the most amazing open minded people.

Hotel was fantastic and the staff were extremely welcoming and fun! We are planning out next trip to this hotel now.

The staff are absolutely amazing and work so hard to make the guests happy. The ocean is not really suitable for swimming, but it didn't matter. It's really about the environment you are in! Erotic and sensual environment, great to reconnect with your better half!

Great room. The food and staff were great. Would come back again.

Second time at the Pearl and it was just as good as the first trip. The staff there are incredible, don't know where they get all the energy. The atmosphere at Pearl is great, people from all over the place and no one makes anyone feel uncomfortable. It is amazing how when everyone is on an equal playing field everyone just gets along.
