Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Just got back from another amazing trip to Pearl.
We have always considered the service, food, and appearance of Pearl to be top notch. But this time, in the middle of all of the Covid crisis etc, they have totally outdone themselves.
We have to mention the staff first and foremost. We can't single out just a handful of names, as everyone, down to the maintenance crews, are better and more attentive to our every need than every before. The service staff know what we want and need, sometimes before we know.
They have had to improvise regarding meals, not having all restaurants open all the time, etc. One might think this is a negative, but they have found a way to make it even better than before. And the quality of the food is wonderful.
The front desk staff is incredibly efficient and helpful.
The entire place is constantly being cleaned and sanitized which makes one feel very comfortable about their surroundings.
The resort has dedicated one of their rooms as a testing area for passengers needing a negative Covid test to return home. The process is very easy and what's more, the resort is paying the bill for this service.
We just can't say enough about the resort, staff and experience.
We have 2 more trips planned for later in the year and can't wait for them to come round.
Congratulations to everyone who is working so hard to make Pearl the best resort we have ever experienced.

Beautiful resort with nice staff. If you buy in as a member you are treated very differently then non-member. Members have special chairs reserved with special purple towels and reserved signs etc. Non-members are put on the side with chairs 2 inches apart and around the pool much further distance from the steps to enter the pool. Non-members are also charged a $10 fee for room service. You are also required to wear a string bracelet showing it is your first time at Pearl although we had been to Rivera Mya in the past. Different color bracelet for second time and up and different color if you are a member of course. The check in process was long because they have long list of common sense rules you have to agree to and the release of liability is ridiculous. With that said, the grounds were nice, the pool is big, the Playmakers were great, Candice was my favorite and we met some nice people. Also enjoyed the hot tub. It was big with nice seating. Food was good but if you are an early riser, be aware there is no coffee until 7 am. Coffee maker in the room not operable.

My wife and I are returning members. We just got back from the Pearl resort and we had a great and relaxing time. Everything from the Cancun airport, shuttle ride to check-in at the resort was safe and clean with several measures in place to insure traveler safety. The resort was immaculate as always with the staff working exceptionally hard to sanitize everything throughout the resort while truly treating you as a family member. No request was too large or small. Some of the little personal touches that we were use to weren"t present, but given the times and business issues facing resorts across the region it was understandable. The occupancy rate was anywhere from 30 to maybe 70% during our stay. So at times social distancing was challenging, but doable both within the pool areas and restaurants. Overall we had a great time. The staff was so appreciative and happy to see everyone there, giving you a family style hospitality and service that makes it hard to leave.

After a trip to Europe was cancelled in the spring, we decided to book a trip to Desire Pearl (our second time) for September. We were very impressed with the great job they are doing during COVID. They have added extra sanitization measures including hand sanitizer everywhere and eliminating walk up buffets (they still have them but the staff gets the food you choose). We never at any point saw a staff member without a mask.

The service, which is always great at Pearl, was stepped up even more. With there being less guests, we felt there was extra personal attention. When the staff found out we were here for our vow reading and honeymoon, they arranged a champagne toast on the pier, and we returned to our room to find some special decorations to help us celebrate our love. Jahel provided an awesome photo shoot which chronicled our special day from the vows to the wedding night. The photo shoot is worth it. She is a true artist! On our last night, we ate at the Pearl restaurant, where we happened to mention to Gomez, our waiter, that we were leaving the next day. He immediately said he had something special for us after our meal. We proceeded through a delicious salmon tar tar and shrimp risotto, prepared by the talented Chef Marco, after which Gomez brought out a cart and made us delectable flaming Mayan coffee table side. Then Chef Marco came out and presented us with a chocolate mousse on a plate which had “Have a great trip” scrolled in chocolate. This is just one example of the personalized and thoughtful service we received throughout the week.

The “playmakers” Candice, Charlie, and the others are sexy and fun and keep things rolling daily at the pool as well as evening festivities. I wish I could remember all the names of the wonderful staff. They are all worth mentioning! Housekeeping staff are awesome and really do a great job.

We are already looking forward to coming back! Thanks, Desire Pearl, for making this another great getaway for us!

Being from Paris and despite not having a similar place in Europe, this is only the 2nd time we can go to the Pearl which is really as the name suggests

Upon arrival, you are bathed in happiness and pampered. You are shown to your room (the simple OceanView that we took was already really great but afterwards, you can really level up). It was very clean and not just in the rooms (the staff is constantly disinfecting all) and the room service was perfect, including the one providing the mini-bar for free (water, soft drinks & beers)

The activities are numerous, very varied according to the hours (daily program) and all of great quality. It is for us a real little paradise where it is certain to have a great holidays, to remember it, to meet, to relax, to enjoy the 3 excellent restaurants, all in an erotic-sensual freedom, a chic certain but which does not take itself seriously, so that one has the impression that all is naturally pleasant. Isn't that the real class & true luxury, especially in the Riviera Maya of the Caribbean (water & air at 27°C average = 80°F in winter this month of January) ?

We can also advise to book the tour offered in Catamaran (at a reasonable price of $ 130 / p.) With snorkeling on the Coral Reef for those wishing it. Unforgettable.

We took 12 nights because only 5 last time 6 years ago, but time has flown like a shooting star!

Everything takes place with the greatest respect: nudity mostly adopted during the day, sexy-dressed in the evening according to the day's themes. No one judges anyone, it provides a special atmosphere conducive to naturalness, care, seduction and the pleasure of having fun to the point where everyone can perhaps wish.

Difficult to be able to explain all the so many facets of PEARL but the craziest thing is surely that all this is above all perfectly highlighted by the quality of the Staff, thanks to whom we can enjoy the most of the luxury offered and the possibility of find the best to do what you love. Really all so adorable and so it's amazing how much they contribute to customer happiness. So we would like to warmly dedicate our thanks to all those who welcomed and served us so well, particularly at Valenzo (Mario), Cob (Georges), Gustavo, Emilio, Antonio, Santiago, Nicolas, Alejandro, Palomino, Orlando, Poot, Tony, Marco, Eddy, Raul, Miguel, Fernando, Christian, José, Braulio, Juan, Guillermo, Alexis, Rey, Leonardo, Vincent, Ismaël, Candice, Yuni, Charlie, Kia, Brad, Ruth & DJ Isaïas !

We unfortunately or not chose to visit Peral during a hurricane, luckily it was a Cat 1. However, we couldn't have been more pleased with how the resort and staff handled the storm. The staff was prepared the morning after to immediately come to our hotel room and help clean up the small amount of water that seeped under the sliding doors. All while we watched the outdoor staff start cleaning up the debris on the grounds and the pool (this was at about 7am). Once we decided that our stomachs needed some nourishment, we were again pleased to see that even though the main breakfast dining room had some minor damage, the staff had the Pearl restaurant (dinner only) set up for us to eat breakfast! Amazing to say the least. The storm was starting to subside and the pool had been cleaned a couple times already, the staff was vacuuming the sand out! By the next day the pool and hot tub were clear and ready for us to use! The beach was a mess, and by the 4th day, they had sand being brought in and for the most part the entire resort and beach looked like normal, hard to believe if you saw what mother nature brought in just a few days before. We want to give a special thanks to Emilio and Veronica for a great deep tissue couples massage. Also a great thanks goes to Manuel, Hector and Alexi for the awesome butler services! We always love the pool service, and special call out to Victor! We used the butler service for the first time this year and Eddie, Miguel, and Vincent for the outstanding bar services! We love it here and will be back soon!

I normally don’t take the time to write reviews, however I would like for others to be fully aware. We have been to Desire RM 5 times and visited Desire Pearl in September of 2021 for the second time in 4 years. We had an amazing time at both resorts and tried to rent at RM, but could not find any availability. We then decided on Pearl. Needless to say, we were very disappointed with our most recent visit and how much has changed in 4 years. We arrived on a Sunday and were quickly checked in and given our Ocean View room. The following day, our Bellhop called our room and stated that he was calling to assist us in moving us to another room. I told him I did not know what he was taking about. He stated that we were given a Junior Suite and we had paid for a regular Ocean View. I informed him that we were not aware that we were upgraded to another room, as we were never told such a thing. He then said to meet him at the lobby so that we can speak to a manager. We then spoke to the manager who stated that they had given us a complimentary Junior Suite for the night so that we could experience the room. I informed her that had we been told that we were having a one day upgrade, we would not have unpacked and ironed our clothes, nor would e have accepted it for just one night. She then stated that we would have to pay for the upgrade if we were not willing to move to another room. I asked to speak to another manager, as I did not feel that we should suffer the consequences due to their mistake. She then said that she would contact us later. The following day, the Bellhop found us by the pool and asked if we would be able to be out of the room by 3:30pm, as they were expecting another guest. I told him I could not believe that we were being put through all of this while we were just trying to relax and enjoy our vacation. I also informed him that we were more than willing to move to another room if they would compensate us in any way, as it was their fault that they were inconveniencing us. He then stated for us to just keep the room as there would be no compensation for the mishap and actually admitted that they should have told us and it was a mistake on their part, something the manager never did (admit mistake, nor apologize). We finally tried to relax and enjoy our vacation after the back and forth. While meeting and speaking to other guests, it was interesting to find that they too had similar experiences in being asked to move to another room. Some benefitted by actually getting upgrades while others had a similar experience to ours. Another couple felt that this was being done purposely in hopes that people pay for upgrades (not sure if that’s the case). Second part of my review is that the service was no where near what it was 4 years ago, where we felt that the staff were treating the Premier guests much better than the regular guests. This resort has done a very good job of selling Premier memberships, thus creating a social/members only club environment. We definitely will not be returning to Pearl. We do recommend that you visit RM for a much better atmosphere and service (probably why there was no availability). It was disappointing to see the difference in 4 years and could not believe that the manager never apologized, never admitted that they had screwed up and actually had the Bellhop do their dirty work. Major shame because it was such a great place just 4 years ago.

Wonderful experience during a pandemic. All the staff wore masks all the time. Cleaning routines between people using spaces like the dining room, gym, lounge chairs, were enforced. A special shout out to those who made our trip most special: Our butler Hector, Chef Rusbin, Chef Didier, Hostess Cecilia, Waitstaff Carmen and Tony and Rey, Santiago, Suki Manager Carlos Sanchez, Pool Attendants Horacio and Victor.

We are members and have been going to Desire for more than 7 years. We were happy to return to Pearl in August but weren't sure how things would be with COVID. Although the resort was capped at a lower capacity, the staff did an amazing job keeping everything sanitized, clean and fun. All staff wore masks and there was hand sanitizer everywhere. We felt safer from covid at Pearl than we do in our own city. The service was impeccable, the staff was amazing, and the property gets better and better.

While all the staff are amazing, there are a few people who made our trip more than we expected:

Carlos & Irving, our butlers, were truly outstanding. Whatever we needed, they were there to help out. When we needed something off-property, Carlos sprang into action and had the request taken care of within hours. When we had an issue with our room, Irving was there late after his evening shift helping us work things out and even helping us move to another room. These guys are just amazing! Although Hector wasn't our butler this trip, he stepped in a few times to help out with anything we needed. All three truly went out of their way not only for us, but for all the guests they were helping.

We had great wait staff all throughout the stay. Josue - the chef at Aphrodite was incredible in accommodating our celiac dietary needs. He had something different and creative for us every day, and took time to greet us and make sure everything was to our liking. Special thanks to our waiter Jesus @ Aphrodite for being spot on every day and always bringing us our favorite drinks without asking. Mario at the Pearl Restaurant deserves a special thank you! He and the team at The Pearl went above and beyond every night to make sure we had something special. Mario even prepared handmade deserts at the table! Mario, Salomon, Felipe, Gerardo, Pulido and Chef Marco at Pearl were incredibly accommodating and made sure each night's food was awesome.

At the bars, we had great conversations and service from Abidas, Luis & Jairo. And of course, Miguel at the pool never let us have an empty drink, and even brought us waters without even having to ask!

Of course, a huge thank you to Victor at the pool. Victor knew exactly where we wanted to be every day and made it happen effortlessly. Antonio was a great support always making sure we were comfortable.

And the Playmakers, Candace, Yuni & Cesar did a great job keeping things upbeat & active in spite of the COVID restrictions.

If you have not been, we both consider Pearl "the greatest place on earth." No judgement, no pressure. Go. Be naked. Or don't. Stay up late and party. Or go to bed early and enjoy the beautiful daytime skies. Whatever you want your vacation to be, Pearl is our favorite.

After starting two days of Temptation, we decided to cut that trip short two days and head to Pearl early. We are so glad we did. The vibe at Pearl is so much better for couples and for meeting great people.

From the minute we got there we were impressed. We have been to Desire RM twice before but we absolutely love Pearl. The grounds are lush and gorgeous. The size of the resort is perfect. They gave us a beautiful ocean view room number 31 which was absolutely amazing and had a great unobstructed view.

The staff at the resort is absolutely amazing and is what keeps us coming back. We have never been to a resort where the staff bends over backwards to make you feel like a king and a queen. By far our favorite waiter in the morning and lunch was Tony at Aphrodite. We have never been so well taken care of and always had my mimosa ready for me. He made sure to coordinate with chef Josue for my gluten allergy due to celiac disease. I cannot commend them enough for catering to my food allergy. They were very accommodating and very nice and did not make me feel like I was a burden. Desire Pearl was way more accommodating with the gluten allergy than Desire RM was. We last visited Desire RM June and September 2019 and always felt there was never enough food selection to accommodate my gluten allergy especially in the buffet. The chefs went above and beyond to make my vacation special. We are foodies.

There is so much to say about this great Resort and we will definitely be back!!
