Our Opinion

Desire Resort sells themselves as a "wonderfully exotic, erotic, adults only resort where each moment is an adventure". This resort is a couples only, clothing optional resort for adults 21 years and older. It is a smaller resort with only 110 rooms and of course caters to a very specific traveler. The beach area is nice but a little small and the same goes for the pool area. Rooms are nice. If you are looking for a resort with a nude beach in the Riviera Maya or Cancun, this is one of a very few options.


This clothing-opitional, couples-only resort provides a sensuous and unique concept. Couples enjoy the freedom from conventional environments at this secluded and vibrant premium resort. Every amenity of this sublime hideaway is designed to pamper couples with everything needed for the most memorable vacation experience of their lives: from exquisite powder-soft, white sand beach to gourmet dining, to new friends, nothing is overlooked. Desire Resort & Spa is the world's foremost clothing optional all inclusive resort, and it's mysterious allure has devotees coming back time-and-time again. For a tension-relieving weekend getaway or for an extended holiday, there is no place on Earth like Desire.

Location: Beachfront, 20 minutes from Playa del Carmen and 20 minutes from the airport.

  • 21+ Couples resort with clothing-optional, racy atmosphere
  • Provocative entertainment featuring theme parties, "play room" and a lively nightclub
  • Nice white sand beach
  • Pool and whirlpool overlooking the ocean 
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Well-equipped fitness centre 

tripadvisor Traveler Reviews
  • GrapeApe2015 : Fort Worth, Texas

We made our first trip to Desire Riviera Maya the last week of April 2017. We had a deluxe ocean view room that was fine for our purposes. Because of the beach beds on the first floor and the overhanging roof on the second, the views of the ocean are somewhat limited. The bathroom vanity was very small and showed some age, but the walk-in shower was large and fairly new. The resorts grounds are beautiful and well maintained. There are better beaches to be found, but we thoroughly enjoyed the freedom to lay naked on a beach bed and have food and drinks brought to us whenever we liked. The distance from our room's front door to the beach was just a few steps.The pool seems like the social hub during the day and the staff work hard to keep the drinks flowing. In the late afternoon, the hot tub on the roof becomes the place to socialize and the bar staff there also makes sure no one goes thirsty. We found the evening shows hit and miss. Sometimes it was just hot and we were eager to get into the air conditioning in the disco. Speaking of air conditioning, the unit in our room stopped one evening and within a minute of calling the front desk a gentleman from maintenance was there to fix the problem (circuit breaker).The service was almost uniformly excellent. One server in particular (Oscar) seemed to go above and beyond every time we interacted with him. The food was generally good for an all-inclusive. If the resort has a weak area, the food is probably it, in our opinion. Now the best thing about Desire: The other people visiting the resort. We met and talked to perhaps 60 or more friendly couples. All of them were a joy to meet. We got to know a few particularly well ;)I was expecting to be a little disappointed with the Friday foam party, but it turned out be one of the highlights of our trip, again because of the people we met during the foam party.Prior to our trip, we had planned to do a few things: a photoshoot, a snorkeling trip, a massage seminar. But we never did any of these and don’t have any regrets about it. We are hoping to do the photoshoot next time for sure, though.We can't wait to go back.

Desire Riviera Maya Winter 2017

We stood at Desire RM the last week of Feb 2017 into the first couple of days in March. It was our first trip to Desire, it won't be our last. We waited a bit to write this review, and our feelings haven't changed since we checked out. WE LOVED IT! 5 star all the way. The service is top notch from the moment you arrive until the moment you leave. We already have dates set for our next visit. We were greeted at the door by Rafael, we gave him our names and somehow from that moment on, every staff member greeted us by name the entire time. Fabiola, the Guest Services Manager came out to welcome us to Desire. We then meet Daniel "Shorty" who gave us the tour, introduced us to our butler Jorge, and answered the few questions we had. The General Manager, Alberto Martinez even came out to welcome us. The resort is beautiful, the grounds are impeccable, and each and every staff member greeted us enthusiastically and with a smile on their face always. The food is plentiful and delicious, top notch all the way. The buffet had a great variety and is better than most restaurants that other hotels have. The sushi we had at Suki is the best we have eaten anywhere. The late night snack bar is great for those long nights partying. The pool area was fun and lively with a swim up bar. DeeDee and the rest of the entertainment staff organized awesome poolside daytime activities and the nightly entertainment was second to none. We look forward to our return in March 2018. We highly recommend Desire, we would rate it a 10 if we could.

Collect moments not things

The service-stuff ist absolutley great. We love them all. Food and beverage is excellent. The room equipment could be better. The evening-entertainment-team is poor. The new dresscode at the lunch-restaurant do not fit to the outstanding permissive image of Desire. Girls should not have a dresscode except shoes and panties!

Fifth trip back!

We had a wonderful time. It was our fifth trip to this resort. The property is cosy which we like. The food was good all the time. We like the lunch buffet area that you can grab a snack at multiple times a day.
