    Ha. No he's cool with naked. His concerns are $ And not enough of a party crowd. He doesn't expect TTR but he's not a sit on the beach and read type of guy during the day, either.

    Ha. Same here. That is why I was not thrilled the first two days. Too slow. But that changed. I am a play volleyball, socialize, have some drinks, get lunch, more drinks, cornhole or pool bball, socialize, then get a round if shots kind of guy.

    Exactly. Him/Us too. And we heard Desire RM had a slightly younger, more upbeat crowd. Personally the small size of Pearl has me slightly apprehensive.

    I think the pearl smaller size results in a higher risk and reward. The facilities are the best. If you get a good group then the reward is huge. But since it is smaller there is higher risk that the group might not fit your interests whatever that may be. Sounds like for both of us it is a good party. For 2nd half of week we got the reward. First half didn't meet expectations. End result we would take and will take the risk again.

    Great trip report! Enjoyed it very much, we looked forward to each day report as we look forward to the next episode of Game of Thrones... with lots of excitement.

    Haven´t been to Pearl yet but we have been to both TTR and DRM and loved them both. Already booked both for november, but might as well change DRM to Pearl after reading your report. And would definitely book TTR on Octoberfest 2015.

    Oh, and those pictures of the erotic photoshoot are simply amazing!

    I wish I was going next week! But if we go it'll be September 2016! Maybe 12 months for me and the Mrs to brush up and challenge you! She's 5'11" so she should be a strength player. Just got to teach her not to keep hitting it backwards and we should be pretty good! Have a great trip! Looking forward to another report if you have it in you!

    So after reading your trip report and seeing in your sigature you went to RM in October, I'm curious how you liked it compared to Pearl? We have been to TTR once in April 2014, Desire Cabo in 2012 and looking to try one of the Desires this spring.

    We posted a trip report further down this page on Rm from our trip in May. I never finished that report but I did do a rm vs Pearl comparison in it. Currently working on the October rm report. Not going to post until I complete it this time so I don't leave people hanging.

    But the very quick pearl vs rm comparison based on our 2 trips to each... The mrs prefers Pearl due to the nicer rooms and grounds. I prefer rm because it is a better party. Pool is smaller and jacuzzi is smaller at rm but I look at that as a positive as you are in closer proximity to others creating more of a social atmosphere. Plus rm is a slightly younger crowd. Now we love and appreciate both young and old and most at these resorts are young at heart but just stating the facts from our trips. People stay up much later at rm. Rooms much nicer at Pearl, more elegant sexy.

    Good evening, I have read the whole run down of your trip to Desire Pearl and am curious as to what the "play room" was about there.. I know you didn't participate but do you know what it was like, from others?? Just curious, as we may want to check Pearl or RM out one trip.

    Thanks in Advance

    Awesome TR by the way!

    Thanks for reading! This was quite a trip, great memories. This trip was actually in 2014 and we have been back to Pearl twice since and also visited RM twice since. There is another trip report comparing Pearl to RM if you are interested...
    Jen & Kyle Desire RM May 2015 Trip Report

    Re your question on the play room, at Pearl it is a room off of the disco where adult 'play' is allowed. Anything is allowed in the playroom. Where as they discourage full out open play in the main disco (although it does happen) Normal ls type rules apply of course. Has a wrap around couch and a swing. Sometimes there is no one in there. Sometimes a single couple goes in to have fun. Sometimes two couples. Sometimes more. We have found that about 50% of the nights we have been there in 3 trips it has been used. Let us know if you have any other questions. Love talking about Pearl :)

    Thanks so much for the reply, figured it was something like that. The boyfriend and I may try Desire RM some time next year for as this year we are going to TTR in August (2nd) time. Also have another family trip booked for Oct and we already took 2 trips this year, so we are pretty set. We are a young couple (28yo) not in the lifestyle but open minded and non judgemental, just like to have fun and experience new, different things/people. Seems like RM may be more our cup of tea since we like to party! We are more comfortable now since we went to Jamaica and did the nude beach as well as Orient Beach in St. Maarten (all nude). Felt comfortable and liberating and really no big deal! How vacation should be! Thank you again I will be sure to reach out if I think of anything else!

    FYI- First time to TTR I did NOT go topless at the sexy pool but felt comfy enough to do so in the ocean! Maybe this year will be diff. =p

    It used to be that RM was more of a party resort and younger crowd but that is changing somewhat. Who is there the week you are there is a big factor. Our favorite party at either of the Desire resorts was actually at Desire Pearl. They have a music festival in August. The music fest draws a younger more party crowd. We are going back to Pearl this August 10-15 as it was a lot of fun last year and then heading over to TTR on the 15th for the reopening.
