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
  • Nigel T :
A great 2 days, give it a go

Went here to give it a try while travelling back from our main stay in Tulum. We really enjoyed our time here. Staff were great, food was very good (the one evening meal we made it to). Rooms were decent, if not super new luxury. Fantastic welcome by all there. Fellow guests were all great fun, relaxed and friendly.Roof top large hot tub was always great fun and a good place to meet guests. Foam party was entertaining.A little more on show than your average hotel; a lot more in certain areas. If you're not offended by that you should give this a go. You'll find a great welcome, no pressure, and lots of fun to be had. It's a long way for us, but I would definitely go back.

An amazing trip

Desire Riviera Maya may not be for everyone, but the staff are amazing from start to finish, and the guests that you will interact with will be one of a kind. The amenities are good, not the best on the island, but how much time does one spend in their room in Mexico? The playmakers are amazing. DD, Anna Banana, Eddy and Kevin did a fabulous job of engaging the pool guests during the day, and the event guests during the evening shows. Take time on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons to visit the seminar of Lauren and Richard. Their approach is bar none. The bar and restaurant staff are always right there to accommodate your every need and desire, and remember you from visit to visit. Every trip you take is what you make of it and the effort you put in. Desire is a fabulous place.

Always Very Good but not Great

Resort try’s hard but key decision makers at Desire Cancun MISS THE MARK. They miss the mark by not looking at the audience and making it for them. 1. Had a special Premier dinner for members. This week was First time we experienced that and Original thought was THATS GREAT - until we saw the menu and food. The did not have a big international base for dinner as customers for this dinner yet the dinner was one of those little bitty pieces of food on plate that while looked pretty was not good to eat. Hate to be negative but the dinner sucked and took 2 hours. Had to come back to room and order room service. 2. At pool today Valentines Day they have ONE WAITER and he is spending more time talking to the ladies than taking orders. Other days they have a couple employees taking orders OR maybe it is that Africa the pool attendant does twice the job of the guy on Today. 3. Valentines Day at pool music IS TERRIBLE!! The DJ does not look at audience at pool and play to them. Should be a good cross of music based on nationalities present. NOPE on Valentines Day Desire Leaders thought it would be good to have a 60-90 minute guitar solo performance. Not since I was 15 and in a high school band have I heard a guitar solo that long. It SUCKED. ENTIRE POOL was un-interested. Now listening to Mexican music nonstop. Just a bit more educated DJ who knows a little more about music that his own culture since most audience is not from Mexico would be nice. 4. Not sure what is happening to the beach at Desire. The Staff took hundreds of bags of seaweed off beach but could have taken another 50% and actually cleaned it up but they stopped and end result is not positive Beach experience. ON POSITIVE note staff is absolutely great and staff is not to blame for the leaders decisions. ROOM ARE TO DIE FOR. Absolutely Great. View is GREAT. They actually allow some “play” on the beach beds now which is GREAT! THANK YOU DEAIRE LEADERS. We hear about 2 more Desire resorts being built. THANK YOU DESIRE LEADERS AND OWNERS.

Just got back from Desires RM. Our third time there and booked another trip the next day after getting home. Desires RM was as seedy as always and the staff is second to none! D.D. Is always great at the pool and Africa serving drinks is fabulous. Fernando was always around looking to serve you a cold refreshments. Was the wife's birthday and they decorated our room. Very nice Desires. We will be back soon

Pure fun with wonderful people

Everything we heard about this place was true. Super sweet staff, fun and sexy guests, great amenities and food. your vacation here can be as busy (and, um "busy") or quiet as you like. The best part is meeting like minded, friendly people...we had the best chats. And sure, the extra curriculars are legendary for a reason...icing on a very nice cake. We are foodies, and this place did not disappoint. Even if you are shy, don't "play" or don't know for sure, visit with an open mind. Bring lots of sunscreen. And bring some cash for additional tips. They staff are not expecting it, but they are wonderful and deserve the love!
