We visited the Desire resort for the first time this August. The good: very clean, excellent service, friendly staff, fun disco and theme nights The bad: limited food choices (especially with one of the two restaurants closed for renovation), beds on the beach need to be reserved at a fee, the beach is not swimable... The resort is too small....

We've been to Desire twice before and we've been to Desire Pearl also so there were no surprises for us. Except one!

So many courteous hard working people give it...
