Thanks $parkie7! So right -- the flight, the hotel....thankfully, Desire really is as blissful as everyone says. Daydreaming about the day we come back!!!!

And to the couple who responded to you as "newbies in training," kudos to you...lol...it is exactly what we feel like! ^:)^


Welcome kan2ca! CO is clearly the way to go, and we had a blast, with some very minor exceptions which barely register as blips on our radar!

As a first time couple Desire or couples only, we found your review helpful also.

I hadn't thought about the heat being a factor in costume choice. Also the insulated cup seems obvious once you think about it, but I wouldn't have realized until my frozen drinks were melting away.

I really hope that we have a more smooth start to our vacation. We booked a direct flight hoping to avoid mishaps, but so much is out of our control. I guess that's part of the adventure!

Hopefully by June, we'll have all the basics covered and seem a little less "newbie" to C/O resorts than we are.

This is the perfect review we were looking for being in the boat. We are quite looking forward to some level of exploration, just don't know how much. We want it all to happen at our pace if it happens at all. We are open to a lot of things but being pressured is just not what we are looking for. I'm guessing couples get the hint if they are to aggressive and you walk away. Others just a polite exchange of words and a no thank you must go along way and build friendships. We as couple are all there for the same thing, to be adults, get away from the kiddos for a bit, and rekindle the flame. Thanks for the review!

Great report. We are thinking of taking our first trip to RM and this answered a bunch of questions I had.

That's how we are/were too, jmonahan. We didn't feel any pressure except what we placed on ourselves sort of inadvertently by being nervous. So glad you took the time to read -- let us know if we can help!

Thank you for your great report. My wife and I are newbies and going to RM for the first time. We are both nervous and excited as well. We cannot wait to get there. She and I have never had a vacation alone, so we are really excited about this.
