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

Best Environment Ever

The environment was incredible and all the staff and patrons were friendly. It was like having a family of strangers come together in a sunny, Mexican garden of Eden. Shortly after we arrived, we were immersed. After a few hours, wearing clothes felt very awkward and out of place. All of the food was tremendous. We recommend the steakhouse above all others. Although there was an additional charge for the menu items, they were WELL worth it. The hibachi restaurant was spectacular as well.There was a small bit of construction on the property that they did their best to keep out of sight and quiet. They did a good job, but there was a path obstructed because of the work being done. That didn't ruin our vacation at all.

Great but don't pay with AMEX

As always an excellent lifestyle destination, we have visited it since 2003 when they opened.The staff is superb but we came back disappointed in two areas, first the food quality we feel has gone way down and secondly, we made the mistake of paying our stay with AMEX, ( ended up being charged 18% additional due to what they claim is currency exchange) they charged me in pesos not in Dollars, my AMEX is from the US not from Mexico, I pay my credit cards in US dollars not in pesos.I feel taken and very dissapointed about this cheap Tactic, It is my beleive that Desire it is a very successful enterprise and doesn't need to use this type of shady tactics to take advantage to make additional money with this Non sense exchange scam ...shame on them...

Another Amazing Visit

This was our 4th trip to DRM. We arrived Sept 17th & left Sept 24th. As before, it was wonderful. There is construction with building 16. We stayed in bld 15 & our room was next to the site. The workers started at 10 am & stopped at 6pm. They never once interupted our trip. We were out of our room by 8:30 & returned after 7 each evening.We met several couples from previous trips, The return rate of past guests is incredible. The place is amazing. This is the place to reconnect with your significant other. We are not swingers, we are not into the lifestyle but we do enjoy being naked during the day. Everyday is the same as the day before. You can make it active or be inactive. Whatever you want. Volleyball, snorkel, paddle boardd etc... There is plenty to do or not to do. It is your choice.The food is very good for an all inclusive. The late night BLT's are a must. The drinks are plentiful & service fantastic. The people who work there make our trip very special. It is wonderful to see the same staff year after year. Africa, CC, Renee, Carlos, Fransisco, Edmundo, Milton, Many & Romantic Candito. They are the reason we return. They are some of the nicest people you will ever meet. The nightly themes & activities are crazy. I love to dress for the theme nights. Some people are so creative! There is nothing to small, skimpy or impossible to wear there. Anything goes. The age group is typically 30-60 yr olds. Bult lets face it, this place is spring break for adults. Regardless of our actual age, we act as if we are 21 all over again. If you are scared to go, don't be. If you do not like it, never go back. Give it a try, you might be hooked like us!
