Desire Resort Trip Report
April 28 -May 01, 2003
Major improvements have been made to the Cancun Airport and
getting through customs and Immigration is easy. Proceed to the
Curb Side Pickup Area for transfers, meet your driver (prearranged
transfers) or take a cab, about $27.00 for cab. The cab drivers
must be able to speak some English or they are not allowed to work
the Airport. The ride is 20 minutes and you are at the Desire
When you first see the resort do not be alarmed. The 2 acre lagoon
out front is still under construction with a new bridge. Entering
the lobby I was greeted with Champagne and cold towel and a
friendly attendant. Check in was quick and everyone speaks Great
English. I noticed in the lobby area was a good size gift shop, a
jewelry store, and an Internet room for
sending e-mails. Concierge reception and comfortable sitting area.
You leave the lobby and walk
across a wooden bridge over a small pool with Tiki style sitting
area to the right, to the left a Big Tiki style Bar and as you get
over the bridge there is a unique bed swing area. These swings
are bed mats that you and your special companion can lay down on
and enjoy the cool summer breeze. A short walk on the winding
shaded tropical pathway and I am at my room.
I had an Ocean view Room. This room was five feet from the edge of
the beach. Tile floor through out the room and bathroom. Queen
size bed accented with Roman columns at the foot with a light
cloth canopy and mirrored back wall. Good pillows and new sheets
and comforter. There was a small refrigerator with bottled water
and assorted sodas. A safe in the
closet. The Closet is big and plenty of hangers. Shelf area with
coffee maker and more storage for your clothes ( you wonıt need
them on the beach).
Chair and dressing table with
good lighting and mirror. Cable TV, HBO, Showtime, Cinemax, Espn,
Cnn, Espn2, BBC, Local stations. Of course there is a phone and
All the wake up calls were on time. One of my favorite things
about the room is Brand New Carrier Remote Control Air
Conditioners, Housekeeping thought I was from the North Pole. The
bathroom has a walk in shower , Toilet, , nice sink area with
shampoo, conditioner, soap, bath jell. The towels were Big and
plenty of them.
Off to the beach....A short five feet and you step onto smooth
soft sandy beach with tiki cabanas and new lounge chairs. The
beach is about 50-60 feet wide and the water has no waves but is
warm and very clear. You can
wade out for about 100yards and it is only 5-6 feet deep. Off
shore (you can see it) about 1/4 mile is the Worldıs third largest
coral reef. This
breaks up the waves before they hit shore. Also, because of the
reef, shell hunting is not that good. You pick up big beach towels
by the swimming pool, put on some tanning lotion and chill out in
Attendants come around and
take drink orders, so there is no need to get up when you are
thirsty. A constant breeze keeps away the flies , mosquitoes, and
sand fleas. I really enjoyed this beach,,,no bugs. Had too much
sun but do not want to leave the beach? There are 25 tiki cabanas
each with four lounge chairs to sit on.
To the left of the resort
about 1/4 mile away
is another resort. There were no guests from this resort walking
down our part of the beach. To the right of Desire Resort the
beach has nothing for about a mile. There were no beach vendors or
locals harassing the guests.
Security is very present , but friendly. The Army patrols the
beach every morning around 7:00am. This being a National
Environmental Protected Area, the Army is responsible to make sure
no one damages the reef or beach with dumping or illegal fishing
and taking of coral. After a long day on the beach you can get a
massage at the beach gazebo.
Once again, the Beach is Clothing Optional. It was very nice not
to have gawkers or beach vendors harassing you all the time. This
is one of the Best Clothing Optional Beaches I have been to. On
the beach by the pool is volley ball, horseshoes, dock with hobby
cats and deep sea fishing boat, Sun sail boats, Nine Wind Surfers,
2 one man kayaks and 2 two men kayaks.
The pool is clean and 3 to 5 1/2 ft. deep.There are unique poles
between the shallow end and deep end with little tops that you can
rest your drinks while in the pool. There are 60 lounge chairs and
6 tables with umbrellas. A Pool side bar with stools and a snack
bar serving burgers, BBQ Ribs, fish, Chips, etc.
Activities coordinators are
always around and have fun things to do. I notice early in the
morning a large group by the beach side
stretching and doing aerobics. Music plays all day long and it is
not too loud.
The Restaurant is big and buffet style Breakfast, Lunch, and
Dinner. Good selection of Salads, Fruits, Vegetables and assorted
entrees. The Food was very good for all of the meals. The tables
have nice table cloths and
napkins. The silver ware and china are of good quality. There are
theme nights so If you want you can make reservations in the
specialty restaurant. The Specialty Restaurant has a cocktail
sitting area and beautiful marble
bar and Piano. The Dining room seats around 40 people so make
reservations early. The menu has a assortment of entrees. Steak,
Fish, Shell Fish, Pork, Pasta, Lamb, Chicken, Vegetarian, Salads,
Desserts and a wine list
with about 30 or more bottle wines. The wines bottles are for
purchase ( you can order house wine for free) the food is part of
your package deal. Staff very attentive and speak good English..
If you are on a restricted diet such
as me the Chef will be glad to make something to meet your needs.
I had Grilled Portabello Mushrooms and Grilled local Fish using no
Butter or Fat. It was Outstanding!!
For those wanting to go Diving they can take care of you. The
Water is perfect for the novice or pro. I donıt dive so you'll
have to get details from your agent .
My favorite place.....The Spa! I had a fantastic 55 minute massage
for only $53.00. The Spa is a full service Spa. A Beauty parlor
and Weight Exercise Room attached to the building. At the Spa you
can get Massages (all kinds),
Reflexology, Body Wraps, Hot stones, Mud Baths, Massage for
Couples, Steam Room, Sauna, Lockers and Bathroom, and use of an
oversized Jacuzzi. Very nice well trained staff. The Spa was busy,
make reservations early.
Night life... Disco, Disco,... A most unique Disco located on
Second floor of Lobby building that is round and you can look out
to the beach or over the rest of the property. It is happening at
the Disco, Big lounge with stand up bar area, big Bar, Sitting
area with deep cushioned chairs and short couches, round dance
floor with overhead lighting and speakers. Located in a Secret
area of the Disco is the Passion Play Room. Ask the
Bartender for the Password and he will show you the way. The room
has intimate lighting and bed pad style couches to lounge around
Now for the BEST....The Signature Desire Nude Jacuzzi. Located on
the roof of a 2 story building next to the pool is a Nude area
for guests. It has bed style lounge chairs, tables and chairs,
recliner lounge chairs and a Jacuzzi big enough for 20 people. It
has a swim up bar
as well as a dry side bar. Drinks and small snacks will be served
to guests. You can swim and overlook the pool and beach on one
side or look out over the front of the resort and woods. There is
enough room for about 70 people. This is going to be a fun spot.
I am already planning my next visit.
