    I am not sure what they meant but the party really starts at 5 at the amazing hot tub. Then gets turned up in the air conditioner club at 10:30 and depending on the night/crowd goes to a different level at midnight back at the hot tub. If you are introverts yet want to party deep down then I would recommend TTR. As there is ALWAYS someone to start the party at TTR. At Desire it depends on the crowd or you have to be able to meet people and start your own party. We are extroverts and had no problem starting the party at Pearl.

    Thanks for the trip report.
    We have been to both TTR and Pearl and we plan on hitting both again next year.

    Stacia & I've been to TTR... sheez! Is it 13 times already! Whoa...

    Anyway, we've only been to Desire 1 time, for a mere 3 days, but I absolutely loved it as being anked is cool, and my wife is hot, and I like to get her both of those things. She gave it a 7.5, for reasons set out in my Trip Report, set out here:

    Enjoy! Man, I can write a mean-ass TR if I do say so myself. Nice...

    I think with the right attitude and meeting great fun party people, any vacation is awesome :icon_biggrin: !

    We've been to TTR twice, Desire RM and Pearl this past Feb. All have been great and our best memories are really from the fun times we had with people we met. We definitely preferred RM more than Pearl but TTR is really a great place too. We plan to hit TTR again in Feb. 2015. It will be interesting to see what we think of TTR now that we have been to RM and Pearl. I guess if our budget was unlimited we would definitely go back to Desire RM every vacation but with TTR being half the price, we can go for longer. We both have been nothing but happy with the food, pool, atmosphere and rooms at TTR. We love Paty O's and are not beach people so the beach is not a game changer for us.

    You can use the toilet paper at the airport to wipe your mouth as it sure is dirty :)

    Was comparing prices for Desire and Desire pearl, both were identical for dates picked, and about 800?week more then TTR.

    question for those in the know: what is the difference between Desire, and desire pearl?

    Generally Pearl is more expensive. Pearl is uber luxury. Fabulous pool, food and service etc wonderful, but, the nights at the disco pretty much suck. At RM it's not quite as luxurious, but the nights rock! Which is why we are going in September while they're refurbishing the pool at RM. Free transfers & day passes to Pearl, nights back at RM. Win win! :daisy:

    Well you're very lucky! Standard rooms are way bigger at Pearl, although not as modern in decor, breakfast and lunch is far superior, pool much larger with swim up bar (although September renovations are to address this at RM). Staff that bit more professional. If I could get them at the same price I'd jump at Pearl. Even though the disco isn't as good, the jacuzzi makes up for it :mermaid:

    Neither of these resorts are purpose built, they work with what they have. Hence Pearl has great rooms, but old fashioned decor, as it used to be a wedding/ honeymoon hotel.:daisy:
    Both are works in progress.

    Hi guys. We are planning to visit Desire RM next April. Can you expand on the night entertainment there. Is there a DJ that plays the music? Also what time would that start and finish. My girlfriend luvs her dancing. Lastly, how is the Jacuzzi there and what temperature is it set to?
