Great Service

Reviewed 25 november, 2021

Another trip to Desire and another great experience. The service is what keeps us coming back. Dinner at Sahlo was good every night and Roger, Israel and Josef were fantastic. Shout out to Raul for making sure everything was always taken care of. Nightlife was good again. Our favorite bartenders are Alejandro, Daylin and of course Carlos who we consider a good friend. At the pool Daniel and Africa are always taking care of us. Our only complaint is getting rooms booked. Availability is a big problem and having to waitlist for certain nights and hope for the best is frustrating.

An experience beyond our expectations--and we've been before!

Reviewed 23 november, 2021

We went for the first time in 2019 for the Swingset takeover and decided to return for a stay in a passion suite, which was such a luxurious experience that we will (hopefully) return to the same room every time we visit. When you stay in this room, there are a team of butlers who check in on you and offer to help make the stay truly spectacular. We appreciated how G, one of the evening shift butlers, helped us have a truly unique experience by suggesting local foods for breakfast be delivered each morning along with our favorite juices and exceptional mimosas. As someone who has worked in the hospitality field for most of my adult life (cook, server, bartender, etc.), I was moved by a candid conversation with Alfredo, who was filling the hot tub, in which he compared working at Desire to his previous experience elsewhere and noted the positive change in workplace environment. Learning that the staff feels respected in their workplace is an important part of our decision to save money for future visits. When wearing masks, Alfredo and G look like cousins, so I have to thank them for being patient with me when I was trying to find them on our last night to thank them. Sorry, guys! Rafael, who mostly worked during the day during our trip, continuously made sure we were set up with any reservations we needed and made the transition between rooms (and checkout) completely painless. Between these three men, we had everything we could possibly imagine taken care of and their suggestions only made the stay more magical. Speaking of magical, every time we came to the room, our housekeeping, lead by Zorayda, made sure we encountered a surprise that melted our hearts. Treats, fantastic towel sculptures, hearts, and hibiscus blossoms decorated the space almost if by magic. Sometimes we couldn't have been away from the room long enough for someone to produce these details. Going out was a thrill. Jussef and Ivonne made the experience at Sahlo (the gourmet prix fixe restaurant) engaging, luxurious, and fun. Josue, Leonardo, and Izmael helped make Suki's a blast because they were clearly having fun and willing to joke around with us. Alejandro took care of us at the hot tub bar, (providing me with a small mezcal tasting adventure), along with Edmundo (who seems to be at whatever bar is busiest), while Jorge and Africa made chilling at the pool extremely easy. Afrika and Moises, working together, make sure you're never caught without a refreshment when lounging at the pool, which is good because we had to cheers the playmakers whose continuous hard work helps keep things lively. Special thanks to Yuni, Javier, and Kevin, who were always taking a moment to say hello and chat a bit despite having a lot to do. CC, of course, blew my mind when I visited her bar by handing me the drink she'd concocted on our last visit two years ago. I don't think there's a better bartender on earth. We're sorry to leave anyone out, but would like everyone at Desire know that we appreciate all the work each individual does to make this resort so unbeatably amazing. Everywhere we look, we see someone working on each detail, ensuring guests have the opportunity to shed the outside world for the length of their stay. If you're a potential guest, I highly recommend a stay at this phenomenal resort. The only short way to describe the visit is: it's an experience you shouldn't pass up.

The BEST as always!!

Reviewed 23 november, 2021

Sooooo Great I love this place! The staff is amazing, service is amazing and we are not in the lifestyle did not feel any pressure and had a great time. The only negative as that the water temperature was cold to warm never really a hot shower and impossible to get the passion suite jacuzzi hot during the day. That did not change our experience and we will be visiting here forever! Thank you. The best staff: Daniel x 2 ;waiter and Pool Daniel and Héctor with Pool towels plus the other one I’m so sorry I cannot remember his name.

Amazing vacation resort!

Eunice is a familiar face that greets me for the meals and takes care of my gluten allergy. She makes sure I have gluten free pizza at the bar for drinks and food at 2am. Simply the best, and I never ever get sick here from gluten contamination

Don’t pass it up!

We began going to this resort 4 years ago and look forward to our semi annual trips every time. We especially love the entertainment…. Yuni, Kevin and Javi, really make our time there a blast, there’s never a full time when they are around. Daniel, is a server around the pool….another favorite, he’s always spot on with his service. But honestly all the staff is amazing and welcoming!
