Pros: The atmosphere. Romantic, sensual, erotic... it all depends on what you are looking for.
Cons: The hotel needs a bit of maintenance but it is in good shape. Nothing to worry about.
Location: Riviera Maya... that says all!!!
Desire Riviera Maya is the best place you can go if you are looking for a romantic and sensual trip with your spouse. The staff is the friendliest you will find, the hotel is very comfortable and the atmosphere is awesome! You will want to go back!!!

Pros: everything
Cons: rooms a bit basic but more than adequate.
Location: The hotel is reasonably close to the airport and once at the resort you may not want to leave!
Could not have had a better experience. The room was a bit basic and somewhat loud (we were very close to the pool) but nothing that would diminish my excellent rating of this hotel. The food was especially good the drinks were strong and the staff were really helpful. Don't be shy, book this resort.

Pros: We liked the ability to be nude anywhere except the restaurants. Its no pressure, do as you like.
Location: location is perfect. On the beach, with very little or no outside traffic walking past.
Desire is everything a couple could ask for. Its as relaxing or as busy as you want it to be. The food was very good. The grounds were perfect. The room had everything you need. The wait staff and bartenders are the best anywhere, always willing to do everything possible to make your vacation perfect. But what makes this place special is the time spent with your spouse. We had the best time just "hanging out" together. We can't wait to go back.

Pros: Lots of fun for couples that have open relationships as well as couples like us that just appreciate the views.
Cons: I wish the pool area and the beach frontage was a little larger.
Location: We stayed on the resort for the entire three days so hard to provide additional info on this subject. Hotel was 20 min. from airport.

Pros: The staff, food and the rest of the facilities was perfect.
Cons: The a/c in the buffet restaurant could be colder!
Location: When you have naked people and drinks who wants to do anything nearby, we didnt.
My wife and i visited july 10-17 and i can write a book( all good). Now my wife was not sure about going here and she likes to try a different resort every year, but after staying here she said we wont be going anywhere else but here. We had a blast, everyone is so friendly naked or not. The staff was just awesome( Abraham at the jacuzzi bar, Carlos at the pool bar, Darwin and Vineay at the suki restaurant, Cardido at breakfast and lunch and you cant forget Danny who seats you at the pool and gets you towels. The food everywhere we ate was totally awesome along with the service. Its amazing how little they make and i do like to tip them which i think everyone should, then you get back to the states and us americans need a million dollars to live and do very little, it opened up our eyes. But anyhow our rooms were clean from the minute we got there till we left. The whole resort is so clean, not run down at all, and the grounds are manicured beautifully. I only had one issue but not the resorts fault i got stung by a stingray, but security called the medic(Leo) and he fixed me up in a jiffy and i was back on my feet in an hour.Bottom line is we will definately be back next year. We miss it already!!
