    Adult fun and sun

    1 st time here, front desk personnel were a bit pushy wanting you to become a member($$) , food was overall great, service was above par especially Rene at poolside, Mario and Cesar in the restaurants, and C C at the tiki bar, thank you. However one of the playmaker from Mexico City found humor that I was a Vietnam Vet, I found this very upsetting!! I also got tired of the daily sales pitch for massages,pictures, etc. The beach could have been cleared of trash better, I understand seaweed but this is trash.

    The staff take the best party in the Caribbean to a new level

    Same fun, different day. Looking forward to our next trip "home". We've been going in late October and February every year for three+ years and this resort delivers the same phenomenal experience every time. Staff took the time to get to know us on our first visit and have greeted us warmly, and by name, on return visits. How they remember everyone with so many guests is beyond me, but they do. Mia, who now does hangover recovery was on animation crew from our first visit, still makes a point of coming over to say hi and ask about our kids. Whenever we arrive ar RM, Daniel hustles to ensure that we have somewhere to sit and big, thirsty towels. Pao, Kevin, Richie and Yuni were beaming when we arrived and asked if I brought my paints with me again this trip. They are a teriffic crew and while it was sad to see Yuni leave, it was fun to give her a big sendoff. Thanks to those from the animation crew who took the time to chat with us. Raphael and G, our butlers, learned new skills on making floral crowns with garden flowers that day! Thanks for the help you guys, and for all your attentive care. Jorge (pronounce it "hoar-hay" if you want to make him smile) was great fun as the afternoon bartender at the main pool. He is always full of smiles, so cute. Elena and Eunice will make you feel welcome at the restaurants, and show genuine concern for your welfare. Once seated we were fortunate to have Leo waiting on us for many of our dining room visits. He made sure that our cups were never empty, folded our napkins so they were fresh on our return from the buffet, and made the time to warmly engage in good conversation. Oh, and if one of the senior bartenders asks you "Who loves you?" chances are the answer is "Miguel does," and it's true!

    We found Desire Resort was a first class resort and the staff was exceptional. The music a the pool and at the disco was amazing. The entertainment during the night was really nice. The property look really great and the food was really good.

    Great atmosphere to meet new people; Love the Resort

    If you want to have the most fun, relaxing week, this is the resort for you. You will meet so many great people. The staff are extraordinary. Rene will help you with your seating at the pool. Daniel will serve you drinks all-day. The personal attention you get from each Play Maker from visiting with you to dancing the night away is so much fun. Every night is a theme night. To fully participate and enjoy the festivities, I highly recommend coming with a couple of theme nights in your suitcase. Latin Fever is always popular but they're always changing it up and doing something really fun. As a reminder, you're not staying at the resort for the rooms. The rooms are small and quaint but they are clean. You're there for the atmosphere. It is so much fun. We've now been to this resort 4 times and will continue to come back.
