A couple we know had been exposed here to another couple who then tested positive for Covid. The couple here began experiencing symptoms and did the right thing. They got tested and also tested positive. A couple of days later we began experiencing symptoms. Since we brought our own test kit, we used it and tested positive. We told the resort, who told us we had to isolate in our room. We are not even allowed at the beach, which we get to some extent.

Since the United States requires a negative antigen test the day before return, and since we knew we would not test negative by yesterday morning, we extended our stay three nights until Tuesday, changing all of our travel plans. The resort stated that we could stay up to 10 additional days at a reduced rate of $300 per night.

Canada and parts of Europe require negative PCR tests. One couple we spoke with from our balcony down to the sidewalk, stated that the testers here told them that 60% of the tests have been coming back positive! That is crazy!

So, we are currently in isolation. The major problem has been room service has been taking up to three hours to bring food/drink and longer to bring toilet paper and Kleenex. Literally sitting in the room weak and starving.

We thought folks who are on the fence about possibly delaying their trips might be interested in our current experience.



Did they isolate you in the same room you were or did they move you to another location/room less desirable? If they kept you in same room was it an ocean view, Jr., master, etc.?

We were in the cheapest room/ocean view. They kept us there.

That wouldn't bother us either, just making sure you didn't get placed back of house somewhere. Thanks for all the insite. Picked up our tests to take for mental prep and hope isolation isn't needed. Been 2 years and we're going regardless!

Yeah, we were on the fence. We ended up moving our January 29 trip. It's not that we're afraid of Omicron. We've both been triple vaccinated and healthy. I don't think we'd get too sick. We just don't want the hassle of getting stuck in Mexico for several more days. We've moved it to May 14. Hope everything is less contagious by then.

We decided that we'd be wary of everyone we're around and hanging with. That kind of defeats the point at Desire, doesn't it. So, instead of worrying about being especially careful at the foam party, the restaurants, the dance floor, THE PLAYROOMS, we decided to just wait a few months and hope for a more fun filled trip.
