There are 2 hotels specifically designed for swingers in Mexico – the Desire Resort and the Desire Pearl Resort. They are from the same hotel group, and both are based around the resort town of Cancun.
Known as ´Desire´, this 114 room hotel resort is in Puerto Morelos, Quintana Roo, Mexico and you need to be over 21 to go there and also no single guests are allowed (i.e. you have to go with a partner, not that you have to be married to them!). It is a ´clothing optional´ resort i.e. you are allowed and encouraged to generally wander around naked in the common areas.
Everything about the Desire Riviera Maya is designed to ignite passions – the Kama Sutra features heavily in pictures and decorations. There is a spa menu where you can have a massage in a Jacuzzi, and you can even have another couple in the Jacuzzi at the same time for a 4 person massage (talk about having your cake and eating it !).
There is a filming option where you and your partner can be filmed making love on the beach or in your room, or in the night club – the hotel provide all the cameras and lighting and you provide the film stars ( it certainly makes the holiday snaps a whole lot more interesting for everybody !).
There are also more sedate options where you can book a romantic dinner on the beach in a private area with sexy music, champagne and a beautiful dinner under the stars for just the two of you.
There are no lack of facilities – 4 restaurants on site, beach cabanas (on a beautiful white sand beach), 2 pools (one with a swim-up bar), a nightclub, a roof top Jacuzzi, playrooms, gym.
There are rooms with garden view, and rooms with ocean view but the price difference is only 60 euros per night which means that the ocean view rooms are better value. The nightly rates are by no means cheap – it is about 500 euros per night to stay here but it is all inclusive i.e all food and all standard drinks are included. (Note that spa and massages are not included in the room rate – makes sense.)

Known as ´Desire Pearl´, this is the sister hotel of the Desire hotel which is only a few minutes away. The Pearl is designed like a large villa, with 88 rooms, and is very much aimed at couples. It is an all-inclusive resort and it does all it can to encourage sensuality and intimacy for its guests.
The feel of the Pearl resort is subtle and sophisticated rather than full-on and party like. The hotel has quite a genteel feel and a lot of effort is focussed on making a couple feel sexy. Swinging is certainly present in the resort but is only part of the focus.
There is an in-room Kama Sutra kit that you can buy which includes scented candles, massage oils, feathers, and you can have the toy of your choice (not sure if they have Monopoly though!).
Another naughty fantasy that you can have fulfilled is to be covered in melted chocolate and cream and then left with your partner and a bottle of champagne. The dessert of champions!
There are 3 restaurants on site all of which are mainly à la carte style rather than buffet style. There is a large pool and Jacuzzi, poolside bar, and a nightclub. The all-inclusive deal does not include the massages or spa, but does include all your food and standard drinks. The room rates are about 575 euros per night.

Comparison of Desire Hotel and Desire Pearl Hotel
The two hotels are really appealing to two different kinds of guests. The Desire hotels is providing a party atmosphere and encouraging groups of people and lots of action. It´s more simple and basic in its approach (that is a little unkind because it is still a luxury resort) in that it provides exactly what its guests want – a party. The Desire Pearl is probably the more refined older sister and its focus is more subtle, and is more centred on luxury and on each individual couple. A good example would be the Jacuzzi – in the Desire the Jacuzzi is smaller but everybody packs into it and hands are all a-wandering and couples are really getting to know each other in the tight packed space. In the Pearl, the Jacuzzi is bigger and everybody has enough room to have their own private space, so you can move closer and mingle if you feel like it or stay private and separate if you don’t.
The Pearl feels more up-market with more refined décor, à la carte dining, classier entertainment, and better bedrooms. It probably works better for couples that are a little more reserved, probably a slightly older crowd, and it’s a little more of a place where you can show off how wealthy you are (and have it appreciated).
The Desire is where you go for a more sociable and relaxed time. There will always be a party happening somewhere in the resort and if you are looking for a naughty holiday with a lot of action then this is a better bet than the Pearl.
If it is hard to decide which one you want, a good solution would be to spend a few days at the Desire and party yourself out, then follow it up with a few days a Pearl and chill out more and recover before you head back home.
