    Same concept, different locations (though they're fairly close to each other). The Desire Resort Forums have a ton of posts and conversations comparing both of them. However...

    I think most people generally consider Pearl to have nicer rooms, and not as nice of a beach. The pool(s), hot tub, and property itself are considerably larger than Desire RM. There's debate on which one has better food, entertainment, and night life.

    Pearl is the more expensive of the two per night.

    Personally, we like RM better; the smaller size of the property lends itself to a certain intimacy that we really enjoy.

    If you weren't a couple you'd have no place at either Desire or Desire Pearl.:daisy:

    Yes, the pool and hot tub at Pearl are both larger than those at RM, however the physical size of both the Pearl and RM locations are virtually identical.

    FYI - crowds at Pearl will always be smaller than at RM since Pearl only has 88 rooms compared to 114 rooms at RM

    We returned from Desire RM a week ago and have been to pearl twice. If your objective is 'best action' then in our opinion the decision should be rm. As stated above, rm has a smaller pool and smaller jacuzzi than pearl with more people. This results in an environment where everyone is closer together and socialization is naturally easier. People know this and the ones looking for more of a party tend to book rm. There were people visiting rm last week saying pearl was 'dead'.

    Now in our two trips to pearl it was never 'dead' and we are pretty good at making our own party and socializing. And Pearl definitely has nicer rooms, pool/jacuzzi and overall facilities. So my wife prefers pearl but I prefer rm. Neither is the wrong decision. And a lot depends on who by luck of the draw is going the week you are going. End result, if action is the main objective then Desire rm is the most likely fit. Enjoy!!!

    Dang! When we were there the property seemed a lot bigger than RM - maybe that's just because it was unfamiliar?

    FYI - Desire RM is more spread out along the beach and has 630 ft of beach frontage were as Pearl is a narrower lot(but deeper front to back) and only has 450 ft of beach frontage. Overall the actual sq ft / m^2 of the two properties is virtually identical, just laid out differently ;)

    I personally agree with Kyles assessment - it really depends what you are going for, but either is a good choice if you what you want is to take it to the next level

    Both allow for newbies to go slow. But Pearl is a little slower. Again depends on the week. But I would choose Pearl.

    We just got back from a week at Pearl. Room was huge, swimming pool was huge, public Jacuzzi/hot was huge (big enough it had an island in it), facilities top notch.

    So, Pearl is a better "facility" than DRM.

    As was said above, though, since DRM has more people there by capacity, and those people are in a relatively smaller area (swimming pool is less than a third the size, for example) it encourages more meetings and conversations etc. Same thing witht he Jacuzzi and There it is the "etc" which gets really interesting.

    More food options at DRM, more bar options at DRM, more late-night food opportunities at DRM.

    More sexy party fun-time at DRM, as Pearl's is usually a "show" of some kind around 10 pm, then the disco opens up for about a half-hour and then people leave since it's not really conducive to partyt here and either go back to rooms or to the Jacuzzi/hot tub. *shrug*

    Meanwhile, at DRM the party's just getting going at the nightclub at ~12:30 and clothes are falling off. Damndest thing, that nightclub.

    I can't speak for Pearl but we LOVE DRM! We'll be there 11/1-11/4 after a week of Halloween partying at the new TTR.
