    Hi, this is a tough one. We were at Desire Riviera Maya one year ago and the beach was not great. It was narrow, experiencing some pretty bad erosion, and the seaweed was OUT OF CONTROL. Every day, all day, they had poor guys out there raking up literally mountains of it and carrying it away. Things could be different now, of course, so I hope someone with more recent observations gives you an update. Now, the tough part...we have not been to Desire Pearl, so no direct observations for you, but we asked around and were told that Pearl wasn't all that great either (its only 15 minutes away from RM). However, we did meet and hang out with 2 separate couples who came from Pearl to RM for a day and decided to switch their reservations and stay at RM - not because of the beach, but because of the people. They said the crowd at Pear was a lot more stand-offish and kept mostly to themselves whereas the crowd they found at RM was alot friendlier and more engaged with on another ...more fun. All the fun at Desire RM is at the pool and hot tub anyway Again, that could have just been that particular week. Long story short, we switched our plans to Hedo II this year and we are really looking forward to it (Nov 19-25). Best of luck to you making your decision.

    The beach at Pearl is better in that it’s wider and doesn’t suffer from the same erosion problems as at RM but the issue we had with it is because it’s so close to town there’s a lot more people walking the beach which results in lots of gawkers. Totally agree with S&M that there’s way more going on at RM than Pearl.
