We started going this resort in 2006, and it is now an annual trip! It is by far, the best place we have ever been!! Food, staff, service - everything is a 10!!! The pool staff remembers you by name, remembers your drink preference, etc. We never leave the resort, as this is not a tourist trip. The entertainment staff...

We've been to Desire twice before and we've been to Desire Pearl also so there were no surprises for us. Except one! The resort maintenance, food and service are always excellent but Desire has stepped it up a notch beyond excellent. The resort and its staff were above excellent on this trip. So many courteous hard working people give it...

We arrived at desire July 13th and it was our first trip anywhere outside of Canada. Right away the service with the staff was so warming we new we were in the right place. Our room was beautiful.

We went for 4th of July weekend. Even though it was overcast and raining for the first two days of our stay, the energy was good. We loved the beach access, and opted to stay by the beach which is quiet and away from the hot tubs. It was our first visit and we enjoyed our couples time. We are...

We enjoyed another wonderful trip to Desire RM June 18-23. The service was excellent. The foam party was an off-the-hook type of experience. Overall, we have nothing but positive things to say about Desire. The staff is excellent and they seem to have very little turnover. Every time we go we meet the nicest and friendliest people. The only minor...

This was our first experience at a clothing optional, adult oriented resort and we were a little unsure as to what we would find. We arrived early around 1:30pm and check in was seamless, we got our room only 10 minutes after arriving. We were 20 feet from the pool and restaurants, which at first we thought would not be...

This was our first time at this or any resort like it. It took us a couple of days to really feel comfortable and relaxed, but once we did, it was a total blast. We are not lifestylers, but that wasn't a problem. We met so many cool and fun people from all walks, we can't wait to catch up...

When we first stepped into the reception area, we were greeted with a "Welcome Home". You know what, Desire IS our home! There is something to be said that we have returned to this resort 5 times. There is something to be said that we see a lot of the same people every year & have made some very great,...

We went to Desire for our anniversary. We are not lifestylers, but we like the vibe and being around that environment so we love going to Desire, our third visit. As stated in numerous reviews, everyone is very considerate and respectful, but it is a delightfully naughty environment. What makes Desire so special for us is the customer service so...

We just got back June 22nd after a 4 day stay. I really never write online reviews, but after actually going on the trip and reflecting back on the reviews that made me choose Desire. We're not exactly "lifestylers" and swinging every weekend. More like the occasional swapping if / when the situation ever presents itself. Pros - Breakfast, Beach...
