    So we love Desire Pearl. Rooms and grounds beat Desire RM in our opinion. The biggest negative for us was that the resort was a little slower paced than Desire RM. We like the late night party and frequently found ourselves one of the last ones up at Pearl :) We know each week is different but have thought what if we could get a good group to go at the same time to enhance that party (kind of like October at rm) OR is there a week at Pearl where there is maybe more of a party crowd already.

    We are hoping this '2nd Annual Sexy, Young & Wild Music Fest' in August from the 9th to the 14th is the answer. The group running it we heard is fun, desirous group. They are bringing in a bunch of dj's which also appeals to us as we love EDM music and just as important, variety in music is always something we wish there was more of at both Desire resorts and TTR.

    So it sounds perfect but we have never been and don't know anyone that has. Hoping it is as good as it sounds. Anyone go to last years music fest? Or interested in joining the party?

    Here is the desirous link...

    Wow, that's definitely music we like. They have some good DJs. Thanks for sharing that link, something we will have to keep in mind as a possibility for next year.

    Right. At the very least it solves the lack of variety in music issue and hopefully it creates a better party atmosphere too, in theory. Would love to find a review from someone that went last year.

    Kyle, thanks for posting. Given my heat exhaustion in Mexico during Octoberbreast, not sure if I could handle that time of year there, but the group in general seems as though it does multiple trips. I bet you and Jen would love this trip, and we might also. And the prices at Desire posted on the website are much less than what we paid last year (but you know this story all too well--we overpaid).

    I didn't want to be a downer for you Kyle, but to confirm what Hot2Trot suggested, August was super HOT on our recent trip to TTR.

    I think if people would have peed in the pool it might have cooled the water off a bit. It was not refreshing at all. The deck was so hot you had to wear shoes. The ocean on most days was bath water hot as well.

    It may be different experience at Pearl as I recall one of the reviews saying that the disco was air conditioned?

    I know that August is very far down on my list as good times to go to Mexico now.

    Hmmm. Yeah we like it hot. But you do have me thinking about this. As for no Ac I assume you mean you were at TTR? As both Desires have AC in their discos/clubs. This past October and both Mays we went was hot but bearable. Really fortunate on the weather. Two Octobers ago, as Jess points out, was really really hot. But like you say I am sure it will be nothing like August. We just love the thought of a music festival in an environment like Pearl. As you can probably tell from the trip reports, I have this part of me that is always trying to top the last party and create something memorable. So many possibilities for that Pearl Penthouse :) I really do want to rent a foam machine for the balcony lol Bring one of the dj's up, the lifestyle takeover crowd, buffet, full bar and we even had a strobe light last time ha. We will see.

    Our biggest negative for our Pearl trips was the party. I mean everyone just has to party hard at a music fest right? And the price is right and timing is great for us. We are likely doing it unless someone comes along that was at it last year and says the party / atmosphere wasn't any different than other times at Pearl.

    I can actually find even lower prices via cheaptickets but then we wouldn't be a part of the takeover events so likely would just pay the little more. I did read they will honor Desire discounts too. So if Desire offers the go 3 get the 4th free then the prices will get even better. Hopefully they will eventually.

    Ah, I always forget how much cheaper things are in Mexico in general during off season.

    This scares me and confirms that I will not be able to go in August.

    We have talked to some people who went last year and loved it for all the reasons we thought we would love it... younger party crowd and great music.

    So we are planning a trip to Desire Pearl from August 9th - 14th. All are welcome to join the party!

    We landed on August 10th - 15th. Booked a penthouse suite for $619 a night via cheap tickets which is a significant discount. Party is on :)

    Just booked for the hubby's 42nd birthday present - yay! We can't wait! We've been to Desire Cabo in 2012 and Temptation in 2014. Same week we went to Desire Cabo we went to AWOL at ME Cabo, huge EDM fest and had a BLAST...with clothes on! Can't imagine what something like this will be like at Desire - so excited!

    August is going to be a lot of fun at Desire Pearl! The yahoo group has a bunch of activity, the partial takeover from Desirous group will only add to the party and the music fest at the same time should be amazing. Plus Desire just announced a bunch of special guests...

    Finally here. Sooo many nice people on the yahoo group, kik, desirous site, etc. 10 days until the craziness begins! Resort is sold out so doubt we will see any TTR bumpees but if so be sure you end up at Pearl for the party!

    Houston Desirous Party members here. We were at Desire RM during August's SYW month and to be honest we didn't notice anything that was different from any other time - and this was our fourth trip this year. The thing noteworthy was that a couple could bring a girlfriend with them, but we only saw one guy (late fifties) that had his wife and a girlfriend.

    We were there for Latin week but like I said there was no difference between that week and any other.

    The Desirous party was not at RM and was not during Latin week. The Desirous party was at Pearl and was the music fest second week of August. It was VERY VERY different than a normal week at Pearl or RM. Been so busy since returning that I haven't been on here. But for us it was amazing. The party was as good as or even better than TTR this week. We will be back. But if you are a Desire resort fan because you don't like the non stop party that TTR brings then you likely would not like the Desirous party and related music fest as the music and party started early in the afternoon and went very late into the night. Several Desire regulars transferred to RM because the party was too much for them. Maybe I will do a small report as I really think many of the ccc folks would love this week.
