A picture of Jen walking up the steps of the lifeguard tower would have been even better!
You get awesome service whichever grade room you have. Our opinion, honestly, you're young, it's your first time to a Desire resort, I'd choose RM over Pearl. Also awesome! Just a bit more "party"
We love both for different reasons!
Cool thanks Gogo! I did wonder about the differences between the two!
You can always PM us with any specifics. No problem. We love all 3 resorts for different reasons. :daisy:
Thanks for the kind words. Sorry about the delay on the rest. Step father passed away this weekend after a long battle with lung cancer so other priorities right now but I will get back to writing the rest later.
Sorry to hear of your loss Kyle, our thoughts go out to you.
So sorry to hear that. I lost my dad to the same thing three years ago. It's very hard I watch a loved one go through that. Cancer Sucks!
Sorry to hear about your loss.
Sorry to hear that!
Thoughts and prayers for your family from Illinois, Kyle!

Aww...Kyle, we're sorry to hear of your loss.
We look forward to reading the rest of your report and hopefully will see you in October!
So sorry for your loss.
"Like every other trip we had a single guy issue." Hmmm no single's allowed there. What gives? Did they change the policy?
If you re-read that section of his trip report, it happened at TTR when they visited for a day/evening.
Yes, the single guy issue you reference was at TTR. Day 1 we had a married guy issue at Pearl but as we like to say you can't control others, you can only control how you handle it.
On to writing Wednesday May 14th...
Wednesday May 14th - Penthouse Party day
Wednesday May 14th - Penthouse Party Day
We decided to have a party in the Penthouse Wednesday evening at 5pm. Our objective was to liven the place up a little and get people mingling/partying a little more so we and especially our friends from the Desire May yahoo group started inviting everyone who crossed our paths on Wednesday. We are about the party first and try hard to not be 'clicky'
tangent-> which you do run into from time to time at TTR but we didn't experience at all at Pearl. Likely because Pearl is more intimate and you see the same people many times so it is easier to get to know everyone.So we invited young and old, body type immaterial, lifestylers/curious/vanilla didn't matter. Purpose is to have fun, nothing more. For some reason I feel the need to specify that as I think some people think Penthouse Party at Desire must mean orgy, ha, but it doesn't at all. Just a party. Sure some people get extra friendly from time to time lol.
another tangent-> our first night at TTR back in 2010 we were invited to a jacuzzi room party. Innocent us thought it meant hang out and have cocktails in a jacuzzi, well we walked into an orgy lol. Read our 2010 trip report for more info on that one ha. So it happens everywhere and surprisingly I don't think Desire Pearl is anymore likely than TTR for those type of activities. I would estimate our week being 33% lifestylers (increasing as the week went on), 33% curious/experimenters and 33% nudists. Where I would maybe say TTR is 25% lifestyles, 25% curious/experimenters and 50% there for a spring break party. I found the topic came up in almost every conversation at Pearl though. More of a freeing place if that makes any sense and a better environment to just get to know people. Obviously the size of the resorts has something to do with this.
Ok more on the Penthouse party later. We did our usual breakfast buffet. Again top notch quality and service. They even remembered what we got from the buffet and went and got it for us. After the breakfast buffet back to our pool side chairs on the busy side of the pool. You could clearly tell more people had arrived and the resort had turned over. I was determined to play volleyball and recruited enough people for the game. Loved the entertainment staff (friendly, courteous, funny) but they maybe are not as pushy to get people involved as they typically are at TTR (not sure about the new crew at TTR, basing this more off past trips to TTR). I think this aligns with the more relaxed day time environment pool side. If the crowd wants to participate then it is there for them but if not then the entertainment crew backs off. So we got a good hour of volleyball in.
Another differentiator for Pearl over TTR is the pool side grill. I really dislike leaving the sunshine and sexy pool at TTR to go into the restaurant or buffet. We love a light lunch poolside. The grill at Pearl would rotate options each day. On Wednesday they had an amazing Sea Bass. Other days filet, chorizo, chicken, grouper, shrimp, pork chops, burgers, salmon, tuna were options. Usually 2 or 3 a day. So fresh and a perfect break from drinking.
After lunch we joined in the Kinky Darts competition. So they do have some similar TTR spring break style games. Not sure if TTR went this far but basically with your wife/significant other you shot darts from various positions. Positions include things like sticking your 'johnson' in your wives mouth and shooting. Or licking your wife while she shoots. It was funny and much easier to participate in as you have maybe 40 people watching instead of 100's. It is funny what goes through your mind when you are about to shoot a dart with your johnson in your wives mouth in front of all your new friends. For me it was... 'ok, will it be more embarrassing if I get 'excited' in front of everyone or more embarrassing if I DONT get excited in front of everyone' lol Oh how I miss those types of things being my biggest problems ha Anyway I hit a bullseye while in that position and we beat the 3 other couples and got 'I am a Desire Pearl Porn star' tshirts to go along with our 'I am a Temptation Porn star' tshirts that are hidden away from the kids and we will never wear again lol and a Desire Pearl shot glass which we can likely never use. Oh well. Good fun.
Next on the agenda was a sexy photoshoot. We always wanted to have a sexy photoshoot done but never felt comfortable doing it at home. Always worried about the wrong people having the photos. Heard from many about how professional the experience was at Pearl so we went for it. You can schedule a day/time upon arrival at the resort. There is no sitting fee. You negotiate with them after the shoot to purchase your pictures. Prices start at $15 a picture but they push packages which includes actual prints, books, slideshows, etc. We just wanted the soft copies. But the packages range from $400 to $1850, ouch. On Wednesday we just did the shoot then we met with them Thursday to review the pics and negotiate. Will share more on that process in the next days report. So the shoot started at 2 and went until about 4:30. It would of gone longer but we said we had to stop as we needed to get ready for our Penthouse Party at 5. We brought club wear, lingerie and bathing suits to the shoot. Did a bunch of pictures in the Disco, playroom, our Penthouse and on the beach. The photographer was great. Directing Jen and I to exact positions. It was hard work but a lot of fun and EXTREMELY sexy. 100% recommend it to everyone. I guess she took around 300 pics and ended up showing us 190 they liked on Thursday. They can be as vanilla or risqué as you want. We did a mix of both. I will share a couple of the vanilla ones later.
Penthouse party time! We brought with us 2 bottles of Grey Goose flavored vodka (orange and cherry) and 1 bottle of Sailor Jerrys Spiced Rum. The customs limit is 3 liters per traveler but we stuck to 3 because both of our bags were right at the 55 lb limit. We also brought 3 four packs of red bull and a bunch of MIO which we also like to mix with vodka. I arranged for our butler to have other mixers sent up to the room and 4 six packs of beer. We also had champagne bottles from our spa day and arrival. Also I had some cheese and fruit plates delivered to the room. I think I mentioned before room service is free for penthouse but basically with each order I would tip $10 to ensure they would come back quickly when I needed them next and this night we needed them a lot I would estimate (didn't really count) we had 40+ people on the balcony. So at 88 rooms in the resort and the resort at I believe they said 80% full we probably had 1/3 of the resort up there. Our friends from the Desire Yahoo group (intentionally leaving names out as I am never sure who does and doesn't want to be mentioned) also had 100 vodka jello shots as a surprise gift and others brought bottles to the party. I had a bluetooth speaker going outside with our favorite EDM songs and our friends had one going inside. Everyone dancing and socializing. Some showed up in sexy wear, others beach wear, others naked. It was a blast. I think I had to restock the beer maybe 4 or 5 times, just called room service and tipped. I mentioned earlier that I wasn't sure if the extra price for the penthouse was worth it but I would of paid ten times the price to be able to have a party like this again (and we did Friday night, catered and full bar, more on that in the Friday report). The party grew as we sent 5 or 6 topless ladies down to the jacuzzi with jello shots to invite more people up. Then about an hour or 2 in we pulled out the Alcohol Infused Whipped Cream. Of course that turned the party up a notch or two. For those who are not familiar with AIWC it is whipped cream with alcohol. Squirt it on a boob, a neck, a navel and later when the party is more intimate a nether region of a guy or girl. It is amazing what even the shy will do for whipped cream lol When someone yells hurry it is dripping! People come a running. Good times.
The less hard core partiers start to drift off to dinner between 8 and 9. While the hard core partiers hop in the penthouse hot tub and continue the shots. At 9 something we order 2 of everything from the room service menu hopeful that it will enable us to rally and make the show and disco at 10:30. Most people make it and the disco is like no other night. It didn't hurt that it was lingerie night. Lots of sexy dancing to great tunes. At this point the DJ knows what Jen and I have requested most of the week and is playing it. The disco this night was the hottest club we have been to. And by hot I mean sexy, not sweaty hot like TTR nice shoes . Lots of fun dance partners getting maybe a little more friendly / touchy feely than you would be allowed to on the TTR dance floor or any normal club. We never planned to check out the playroom. Not really our thing. But tonight we did. Pearl has a way of making you lose all your inhibitions. And from here I must digress. What an amazing day!
Great report Kyle - we loved Pearl too it was just the right vibe for us...........soooooo nice that it's couples only!
