Love our Desire, either the Pearl or RM...simply the best. Don't plan on much sleep, the place is always hopping..Great food, great staff, great grounds. And the guests are fantastic. You'll love this resort if you are free-spirited and open-minded............

We are a couple age 34/37. This was our 4th time to RM we have been to Pearl once. Love both. Rooms at RM need a bit of TLC and the disco should open a bit earlier as there's a bit of a time lag between dinner and disco. Other than that it's a great time!!

My husband and I had such a great time at Desire Riviera Maya. The weather was phenomenal the whole vacation. We were iffy on booking and going to this particular resort because we heard many other opinions. About the crowds and atmosphere. So we decided to just go ourselves and get our own opinion. And we just loved it. The...

We frequent lifestyle events and excursions and Desire Riviera Maya is one of the best. Few comparable resorts offer this level of service, hospitality, food quality, hours of operation, entertainment, room service, quantity of beach/pool loungers, and fun. What could be better? 1) Smoking. When the majority don't smoke, why are you allowing smokers to inflict their filth on our...

The service from the restaurant staff was excellent. All staff were friendly and polite. Not sure why we couldn't get the coffee regularly in our room for use for the coffeemaker.....disappointed in that as having a beach front room we wanted enjoy the beach from our balcony. Also continuously running out of Canadian Whiskey at the various bars. For the...

Fantastic FIRST CLASS lifestyle resort. Sexy jacuzzi and playrooms up at the nightclub. Good mix of crowds both players and non-players alike. Don't fall for the massage packages...save your money. But great mani-pedi spa. Food in every restaurant is first rate including breakfast omelette bar and lunch. Drinks ARE NOT watered down at all. Staff go beyond your expectations to...

Best vacation ever. Everyone from the guests to the staff were beyond nice. Can't say a bad word about the hospitality. However, the rooms are outdated. The music in the disco need to be updated. But the overall Eskridge is better than hedo.

Great staff is what makes us come back every year. Food is to die for: try the Capuccino trio and the foie gras at Salo. Sushi restaurant is also unbelievable. Even the lunch buffet by the pool is finger licking good. Butlers and wait staff are great. Rooms are quite ok, we cannot wait to try their new passion suites...
