My husband and I were at Desire for 9 days in June 2012 for the first time. The experience was amazing, unforgettable, remarkable. The staff is respectful, discreet, patient, attentive, outgoing and yet very professional. We left there falling in love with each other all over again. We made so many friends from all parts of the world. Will we...

Desire is still a nice place to visit, but it seems to be going downhill. The service was not as impressive and the overall quality is just not there for the the cost. The value is not the best for the money. The place is quite expensive for what you get. You do have the freedom of being nude and...

Wife and I just flew in for a quick weekend trip (Friday noon through Monday afternoon). Got the room we love (ocean view on the far corner of the property) but had to wait 30 minutes. No issues, just stripped to our underwear and got a drink at the outdoor bar and chatted with some other guests. This was our...

We are not lifestylers but do enjoy the freedom of lying in the sun and bathing in the nude. The pool area is more social but you can also lie quietly in a pamploma bed on the beach and read a book, or a little of both. In all restaurants, lobby and shops and walkways people wear a coverup -...

We are not lifestylers, nor nudists, though we are an open minded couple and were looking for an experience to enhance us, as well as a place to relax. This is the place! The first night there we both thought, "What have we let our selves in for?" , but the freedom of clothing optional, non judgemental attitude, and friendliness...

This was our first trip to Desire and while we understand that it is not for everyone, if you are a couple open to a clothing optional experience or in the lifestyle don't miss an opportunity to go. We had a wonderful time meeting new friends, enjoying the beach and pool, going to shows, dancing and partying the night away,...

It's a nice resort especially if you want to enjoy your vacation nude like we do. I've been several time including our last trip March of 2011. Most people who go here are fun and want to socialize. There is always the opportunity to hook up with another couple but you won't feel obligated if you're not into that. But...

If you are the kind of couple who would consider a resort like this, I think you'll love it! This is my favourite resort so far. We just returned from our first stay which was 9 nights. But, every couple we met had been there at least 5 times! That tells you it must be a consistently great place. Other...

My wife and I recently returned from a week at Desire. To anyone considering this resort, you should be comfortable being around naked people, and I would suggest reading the Desire Forum for detailed answers to many questions one would have. I would highly recommend this resort to couples who are open - minded and relaxed. Arrival. We had pre-arranged...
