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,... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

You should go. We've been to some of the upscale Cancun resorts but I wanted to go someplace where there were activities and nightlife. When I first suggested Desire to my wife she said she could try it. Then she spent several months trying to retreat. She had never gone topless and neither of us had been to a nude... More

This was my girlfriend and I's first time at Desire. Although I had been to a nude beach before, she hadn't, and this was both our first time at a lifestyle resort.
