We returned from our worst rip ever at TTR in early December after not being there for 14-months - much of it had to do with the crowd & Weather. Our Butler's at RM we're every bit as good as Damian & Luis at TTR and took care of our numerous requests - Dinner reservations nightly at RM, we alternated between the Asian & Italian restaurants. Just find your Butler in the morning and they will take care of it. Food quality, I hate to say it but Breakfast & Dinner is only marginally better than TTR. Lunch is much better at Desire as the grilled food options, fresh ceviches, made to order tacos are really good. And late night BLT's at RM are the best. Beach side service was a bit slow for drinks at RM, Pearl was much faster and the Premier crew at TTR are the finest bunch of people and your drink never goes empty. We had a Deluxe Garden at RM - I think all the Garden View rooms are on the 2nd floor now and they are much smaller than the Deluxe rooms. The room pictured above was very close to our room - we were missing the rugs and everything was a bit worn down as those photos posted above are when the room was new and refurbished and never stayed in. The Pearl rooms are just overkill - they should allow 4 people in some of those rooms for as huge as they are. TTR is a 2-2.5* Resort - RM is a 3 - 3.5* Resort Pearl is a 3.5* Resort - At $450 a night for Desire it's still cheaper than almost all the luxury hotel offerings, offers better entertainment for the for the trade off off better food in our opinion.
