We were at Desire for 4 nights Sept 23-27.This was our 3rd time. It was even more fun. Here are a few things to know. Restaurants-there are 3 and they are all excellent. One is Asian, one International and one buffet. They give you a chance to have whatever dining experience you want. People dress up for dinner. Women wear...

We went to Desire with a group of friends for a week in September. Our group travel agent arranged for transfers to the resort. Make sure to avoid all the people trying to sell you as you go through the terminal and go outside. The ride to the resort was less than 20 minutes. This is an adults only, couples...

We have been to Desire each year for the past 7 years. The service is always excellent, as is the food. The Disco and evening shows were very good. Pool activities were also fun. The property though is starting to show it's age and renovations are in order. One last comment, which has us re-thinking future visits. Racoons. At our...

We have been to Desire several times. I hate to say it but since the new Desire has opened things have dropped off at the original. We spend our days on the beach. The usual beach bartender was on vacation so they just didn't open the beach bar. Instead they had very hard working people from the restaurant also serve...

My boyfriend and I took a 2 day upgrade to Desire from Temptation. We were told by Temptation that Desire had a similar age range (30s and 40s) but was more couples and a little less of a spring break atmosphere. However the minute we arrived we started counting down the minutes until we could return to Temptation. It wasn't...

Because we weren’t sure how we would like it, my wife and I stayed only for two days during the second week of August. It turns out we had a great time. We had a second floor garden view room which was perfectly adequate. The resort is small, but still a lot of fun. I think the food at the...
