Get A Room

Desire Riviera Maya Resort is one of two Desire properties catering to hedonistic adult activity.  Both resorts are Couple Only, All-inclusive and Clothing Optional.   If you don't know what hedonistic might mean... See lifestyle-friendly  But... suffice it to say... there may be a fairly "highly-charged" sensual atmosphere at the resort. The resort is promoted as welcoming only Male/Female Couples only. No singles, triples or quads permitted.

But, typically in August, the resort may feature a promotion where a 3rd person (female) is welcome to share a room with a sponsoring couple (male/female).  This offer is subject to change.

In our opinion, Desire Resorts' greatest assets are Consistency:  Service, dining, entertainment, staff, and management.

Nude Beach Status at Desire Riviera Maya:
According to the Management of Desire Riviera Maya, the owners of a new hotel property nearby (Breathless Resort) are aware that Desire Resort is nudist-friendly.  Therefore, the new Breathless hotel's status is to be topless next door to Desire.   Further, Desire Riviera Maya management stated there is no law or restriction for being nude on Desire's beach or at the hotel at Desire Riviera Maya.  See the map of Desire Riviera Maya below.

All of this is subject to change.

Getting There

Desire Riviera Maya Resort & Spa is about 12 miles southwest of the Cancun airport on the beach near a fishing village called Puerto Morelos.

Puerto Morelos, a non-touristy town is the first village 20 miles south of Cancun city. Another popular tourist area, Playa del Carmen is another 20 minutes further south of the resort - so you're secluded but close to most things for nightlife and shopping if you can't find enough action at the resort.

U.S. Citizens: 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 and all major rental car companies are located at the Cancun airport. A shuttle from the airport is the cheapest way to reach the resort. You can arrange for shuttle service in the arrivals hall near the airport exit. Airport transfers can range from $30-$150/person, depending upon type of vehicle selected.

Price subject to change without notice. Taxi rates are typically fixed prices for transportation from the airport. Puerto Morelos has taxis that serve the resort, just a few minutes from the town's square.

ALERT  If you have pre-arranged airport transfer before you enter your vehicle, confirm the driver knows where to take you and make sure he knows how to get there.

The majority of the time, the driver speaks English and if there is any doubt while you’re at the curb BEFORE you depart, ask a Supervisor at the dispatch desk where you check it to confirm: 1)  Driver knows the correct name of the resort, 2) Directions or location of the resort. and 3) How to get there.

WARNING:  There are two (2) Desire Resorts on the Riviera Maya 5 miles apart.  Make sure your driver knows the correct resort you've booked.

Water taxis to and from Cozumel are also available from Playa del Carmen and from Cancun. Water taxi tickets can be purchased right at the dock.

Frequent bus service to other parts of Mexico is also available in Puerto Morelos at the terminal located downtown on 5th Avenue.

Sightseeing

Use this link from our parent company, Fox Travel - Associate - American Express Travel, to pre-book your excursions, tours, and sightseeing before you arrive at the resort. Typically, tours and sightseeing include pick up at your hotel.

With the hotel close to everything, you can choose from many activities when you leave the resort. Here's just a partial list of things to do:

Shopping in Cancun, cruising the bars/discos/clubs in Playa del Carmen or Cancun, snorkeling and swimming in the natural lagoons at Xcaret or Xel-ha to the south, visiting the Mayan ruins at Chichen Itza to the northwest or Tulum to the south, fishing or diving on the Mayan Reef, the second-longest barrier reef in the world, extending all the way to Belize.

Optional escorted tours with driver and guide can be arranged at the resort, with transportation that will pick you up right at the resort for your guided tour.

Or, choose to swim with the Atlantic bottlenose dolphin just off the beach or ride horseback in the nearby jungle. If you want to see more of the area, you can go down to Playa del Carmen and catch a water taxi to cross the channel to Cozumel for about $8-$12/person/round trip (prices subject to change without notice).

The trip takes about 30-45 minutes, depending upon the weather….or if the waves are running high. Deep-sea/bill fishing and SCUBA diving can be arranged from the hotel, too.

For a fun night life experience in Playa del Carmen at an upscale watering hole and guest hotel, try the Deseo Bar & Cantina off of 5th Avenue. A slick place to be sure and not just the same old thing as you would find "bar hopping." Ask any local there where the Deseo is located.

You can't get lost on 5th Avenue... the street only runs 10-15 blocks and is arguably the "heart" of "Playa." There are numerous other places to hang your hat in Playa including Sr. Frogs, the Blue Parrot plus lots of other hang out. Cancun has its share of night life including the Krystal and other night clubs. Have fun!

Dining

Desire Riviera Maya offers the following dining and "libation" options. (Days of operation and schedules vary by season)

DESIRE RIVIERA MAYA THEMATIC DINING EXPERIENCES

As a new addition to our selection of seductive experiences, Desire Riviera Maya Resort offers an array of internationally themed dining options on the beach. Couples can choose from French, Italian, or Mexican menus that go the extra mile to please your palate.

These dinner experiences are available for a minimal fee and may be reserved upon arrival at the resort.

Impressions

The consensus of most of our clients seems to be: You will love it or hate it, depending upon the amount of fun you have or what type of experience you're looking for. Couples looking for a liberal atmosphere and sensual ambiance may find it at Desire, while others may judge the experience to be "over the top.".

↔ The resort can be a bit crowded if it's sold out especially if a group is on-site when you're there on your vacation. If no group is in the house, the resort can be somewhat tame by comparison.

↑↑↑ The resort's consistency delivering service, dining experience, entertainment, sports, nightlife, management, and staff is its best asset

↑↑↑ The liberal atmosphere specifically catering to hedonistic couples attracts its share of the market….especially when a club or group visiting the resort.

↑↑↑ Room rates for Garden and Oceanview accommodations are priced at those comparable to similar adults-only Jamaican resorts such as Couples, Swept Away and Hedonism.

↑↑↑ The rooftop hot tub and disco party room are the most likely places for adult fun.

↑↑↑ Desire is close to the airport and near lots of sightseeing on the Yucatan Peninsula

↔ Desire has a Time Share program that you might want .. or might not want to consider. Some see it as an intrusion and pushy and others see some value in it. See the warning and alerts in red text above.

Age Ranges

Guest ages are likely to vary from the lower 20s to over 60, with most in their 30's to 50's. Couples Only.

Best Time To Go

Year-round. Late summer - August and September - can be more humid and prone to storms in the Caribbean. Also, remember that this is Mexico and while even in the summer months there's 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 expect some rain anytime, anywhere, unannounced.

Average temperatures range between 75-85 (F)
