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

BEWARE of Buying a Premier Membership

I bought a Premier Membership 7 years ago and one of the MAJOR selling points was I had 3 weeks that I could sell to other Couples and they would get the Premier benefits. Now they decided that "Guests" are NO LONGER allowed to get the Premier Benefits so this timeshare is worthless as who can afford to go 3 times/yr on your own. They also did this with NO NOTICE so I had guests show up yesterday to find out they do not get any benefits. When I confronted them about this breach of contract their response was to read the fine print. They can change the rules whenever they want.

Return to Paradise "Au Natural"

Original Resorts is truly a leader in adult luxury resorts for nudists and lifestyle couples, that want and expect nothing but the best. Everyone at Desire is so pleasant and caring, it blows your mind. We had visited Desire Pearl 2 years ago and were completely fascinated with the resort, we had to try Desire RM. The food at all their restaurants is 5 stars, the comfort of the rooms 5 stars, the pool and jacuzzi service 5 star, the beach side cabana services 5 stars, the guests you meet and make friends with, are classy couples from all parts of the globe. The Desire experience can not be described, it must be lived. It is a place for comfort, sensuality, romance, exotic-play, PDA and fantasy, truly a place to rekindle the flame with your significant other and a chance to explore and indulge in taboo. Desire is only missing Ricardo Montalban and Tattoo to make is Fantasy Island. We highly recommend Desire RM to couples that want that special spice in their vacation.

Favorite place

We began our try in Cancun and we're so bored we checked out and moved to Desires. Our 4th visit in 13 months. If you enjoy real people and want to make great friends this is the place to be. Already booked for September.

7th time and loving it!

Desire Riviera Maya is like our second home. It is the only resort we have visited more than once. We aren't the only ones. It's common to meet people who have been there multiple times. We describe Desire RM as Disney for adults. If you can handle the atmosphere, you won't find a better resort to let loose and have the time of your life. The food is excellent & the staff is out of this world. You will not find a resort with better service or more fun people to hang out with. We will be returning for trip #8 next year!

Great Trip But Room to Improve!

MY GF and I recently stayed at Desire for the first time. We had heard amazing things about the place and although we are not technically in the lifestyle we heard it was a great sexy place. First the good. The people you meet are amazing. Probably the friendliest group I have ever met. Non-judgemental, fun, and welcoming, even if they are with a group. The staff is great, a shout out to Africa, she was our go to waitress around the pool. The grounds are beautiful, the pool is great and the hot tub is where the action takes place. If you do not want to see naked people, please do no go to Desire. If you are open minded, the place is whatever you want it to be. Also, although we had the only room left, 'the Garden view', it was all we needed and we loved the location. Now the bad: The drink juices they use for mixers are beyond awful. They taste like powdered aspartame (diet sugar). Really ruins a potentially good drink. All the juices in the place are like this, even the ones they say are fresh at the morning buffet. However, after my GF went on a rant, Manny was kind enough to get us fresh squeezed juice. Thank You! The food is nothing special with limited options. Two restaurants and the buffet. But you don't come here for the food! All in all we had a great time, we will be back soon despite the juice. Once you go to Desire, you can never go back to a pure vanilla resort.
