Vacation Club sales personnel on-site may invite you to a presentation to induce you to buy a timeshare.  TIP:  Soon as you check in, the front desk may steer you to the next desk "for more information about Desire."  This may very well be a "Sales Pitch for a timeshare." They may tell you Desire Resorts will no longer be selling their rooms by their officially appointed travel agents. 

In addition, they may provide other information you should validate independently about claims they make about the program, resort expansion, changes in benefits or service. If they make promises, GET IT IN WRITING!  If they won't, be suspicious of their claims and program. If you are displeased, feel uncomfortable or no longer wish to use your vacation you paid for to listen, you are not obligated to participate further.  These folks are compensated only if you buy into the program so they will try to close the deal immediately....before you leave the table.  You may: 1) Depart at any time or 2) Ask for the vacation/timeshare program manager to voice your objection, if any.   Walk away if they keep hounding you.

Complaining to resort management may be ineffective as the Vacation Club personnel work for a different division of Original Resorts or Desire.



Desire attracts adults, couples only.  The resort is lifestyle friendly. Nudity is not required and participation is completely voluntary - not compulsory   If revealing costumes, adult themes, sensual behavior among adults or nudity may offend you, please contact your travel advisor for options to visit other adult venues.

Getting There

Desire Pearl is about 20-25 minutes south of the Cancun airport on the beach north of a fishing village called Puerto Morelos, the location of the original Caribbean Reef Club many of you may have visited. Puerto Morelos, a non-touristy town of about 3.000, is the first settlement south of Cancun city. Another popular tourist area, Playa del Carmen is another 20-30 minutes further south of the resort - so you're secluded but close to most things for night life and shopping.

Passports are required for international air travel to all destinations outside the USA.

Cancun is a world-class vacation area, served by numerous airlines from North America, South America, and Europe. Both scheduled air carriers, as well as charter flights, fly to Cancun with frequent service from just about anywhere.

Taxis are plentiful at the airport and all major rental car companies are located at the Cancun airport. A shuttle from the airport is provided free of charge by Castaways Travel (exceptions may apply for groups). You can arrange for this shuttle service in advance via Castaways Travel. NOTE: If you make your own way to the resort, taxi rates are typically fixed prices for transportation to/from the airport. Puerto Morelos has taxis that serve the Desire Pearl Resort, just a few minutes from the town's square.

Water taxis to and from Cozumel are also available from the local port, from Playa del Carmen, and from Cancun. Water taxi tickets can be purchased right at the dock. High-speed water taxi service is available from the pier in downtown Playa del Carmen. Frequent bus service to other parts of Mexico is also available in Playa del Carmen at the terminal located downtown on 5th Avenue and Juarez Street.

↑↑↑ Desire Pearl is one of our personal favorites.  Service, quality, an anxious to please attitude and constant improvement of the product and experiences is ongoing.  Management and staff are overall a cut above most similar resorts.

↑↑↑ Consistency of service, dining experience, sports, entertainment, nightlife, management, and staff is the resort's best asset.

↑↑↑  The physical property itself is one of the most beautiful resorts we've visited.  Suites' classic styling lets you know you're in Mexico.

↑↑↑  Diving is an optional and extra cost.

↑↑↑ Nice to be close to the airport

↓ Pearl Restaurant count may need to be increased when occupancy is high.  Expect a wait time for dining at the Pearl Restaurant from about 7:30 - 8:30 PM

↓ The beaches in Mexico are public so the beach in front of the resort is not totally private. You may choose the pool instead of nude sunbathing and poolside activities.

↑↑↑  The pool is one of the largest you'll find on the Riviera Maya for this size property.

↑↑↑  You're close to the village of Puerto Morelos so GO NOW......before it turns into Playa del Carmen or .... downtown Cancun.

Age Ranges

Couples only, 21 years of age +. Most guests average in ages from the early 30s to 60s with most in the middle.

Best Time To Go

Just about year-round. Late summer - August and September - can be more humid and prone to tropical storms in the Caribbean. Also, remember that this is Mexico and while even in the summer months there is usually a cooling breeze off the water, but once you go inland or into town... it can get really hot. Also remember that you're in the tropics so you expect some rain anytime, anywhere, unannounced, year-round.
