Nice resort, everyone was pleasant and courtious.Posted Oct 13, 2015
Pros: Everything was great.
Cons: Resort should have complimentary shuttle service to the sister resort "Desire Pearl" vs paying $25 USD each way.
Location: Booze cruise/Snorkeling out of Desire Pearl was a great experience.
We had an amazing experience. Resort is very accommodating and on the beach. Food was really good and having the late night snack bar was great. Rooms were a good size and having a balcony was a bonus. The pool was a good size with the swim up bar. Daytime entertainment was good and the evening entertainment even better. All around a great time by all. We will definitely return and recommend it to our friends.

Decadent, intoxicating adventurePosted Aug 16, 2015 on Hotels
Absolutely wonderful adult playground. It is everything it is advertised as, plus more. The only problem is it ruins you for other resorts. We're not in the lifestyle, but the atmosphere is intoxicating from the moment you walk in.

Quite a nice, fun timePosted Aug 5, 2015
We had visited RM's sister resort, Desire Pearl, several times and we wanted to see the renovations to RM. The new swim up bar was quite nice and we greatly enjoyed the restaurants and food. Staff, as always, were most accommodating. Entertainment and the "vibe" was awesome. Of course, we met fabulous people from all over the world .... still amazes me that people travel to the Desire Resorts from Australia, Germany, France, etc. Our only disappointment was the pervasive seaweed which is an ongoing issue for much of the beach in the Cancun area. We are already booked to return to Pearl for our next Desire visit.

3rd time to this resort and it has only gotten ++Posted Jul 29, 2015
Pros: Desire defines customer service and making guests feel comfortable. Incredibly sensual ambiance to rekindle or enflame your relationship!
Cons: an air conditioned area for when daytime is exceedingly hot. make playtime novelties easily accessible (clothing optional=no pockets ;-)
Location: About 45 minutes cab ride from shopping and Playa del Carmen. 15 minutes from Cancun airport
With 3 children, couples getaways are rare. Since our first experience in 2010 this resort has only continued to exceed expectations. Although it is mostly a lifestyle resort, our experience as a non-lifestyle couple has allowed us to develop innumerable friendships with other couples in and out of the lifestyle. Starting from check-in, the atmosphere in the lobby is incredibly welcoming and instantly provides the relaxed environment a couple such as ourselves needs to feel that the second you arrive you are on vacation. Every staff member greets you with a smile as if you are being welcomed home (even if you are not the ideal image of what other's may say should not be at a clothing optional resort). We spent this past trip over our anniversary (first time ever in our 11 years married), and were surprised by a personalized cake and champagne in our room as well as a modestly priced upgrade for an ocean view room. Of our other experiences in all-inclusive resorts (Sandals St. Lucia, various resorts in Jamaica and D.R.), Desire RM exceeds the quality of food and drinks that we experience on date nights in the D.C./Baltimore area. Our only complaint regarding the resort would be the amount of sea grass that has been a habitual issue over the past few months. But really, they do a phenomenal job of attempting to clean it up on a daily basis with they're tractor. There is no better clothing optional place that makes you feel truly at home and close to luxury. GO FOR IT

No beach areaPosted Jul 13, 2015
No beach area and never try to check in early! We sat for 6 hours in extreme heat unable to put our belongings locked up due to the fact that our plane arrived in the morning. Sat in jeans, etc... In 100+ degree heat! You cannot check in until 3pm. And they mean 3 pm. No earlier! Had to sit through a time share thing after we were able to check in. Never again!

Lugar único no mundoPosted Apr 16, 2015 on Hotels
Agora eu entendo porque as avaliações deste hotel possuem linhas e mais linhas. Todos querem expressar o quanto é bom este resort. Conheço mais de 30 países, viajo a laser 160 dias por ano e este hotel mudou minha maneira de tirar férias. É simplesmente fenomenal. Porém, tem que ter a mente muito aberta. Não é para qualquer um. Pesquise bem antes de ir. O domínio do inglês será determinante para você ter maior convívio e aproveitar sua estadia.
