We stayed at Desire Riviera for 4 nights starting on April 5th, 2017. The staff was fantastic, helpful and courteous. The atmosphere was unlike anything we had ever experienced before. While Desire has its fair share of older visitors, it also has a mix of 30 to 40 somethings that obviously take pride in their appearance. We are not in...

Always ask for Oscar during breakfast, lunch, and any other time he may be available. He is awesome - wonderful personality, sincere, a very good man. I promise you - he will take great care of you and anticipate any needs or desires you may have. We could not have had a better experience dining, much due to his attention.

Just returned from our 10th trip to Desire. Our last trip was in November and I wrote how we thought the nightly shows had degenerated. They were better this trip, but not quite up to the same level or had the diversity of prior years. As for the food, we are easy to please. That said, they need to add...

Great atmosphere and staff and service are exceptional .... very erotic. Clothing optional.... no pressure to join in if your not the swinger type.....However, the rooms are very dated. The food is decent, but I've had better for a LOT LESS $.... The drinks as far as I'm concerned are VERY sub par considering the price of the resort....in Mexico...

Have been returning to Desire for 9 years now. My wife and I start planning return trip as soon as we get home. Exotic, erotic and sensual best describe Desire I believe. For couples only, the best remedy for reviving a sagging relationship,I would say. The service is through the roof and nothing I have ever experienced at any other...
