This is a well overdue review. Have been there several times over the past five years at least twice a year. The atmosphere of the resort is amazing. Is like our home away from home. Have met lots of people from all over the world and always have lots of fun. We have been all over the world and we can say that the service at DRM is difficult to match. Starting with our caring restaurant hostesses Elenita and Eunice, they are so caring and treat us like family. The servers at all restaurants always go the extra mile and anticipate our needs. We know we are forgetting names but Jazmin in the morning, Tony in the evening, Jorge, Santos, Domi, and everyone else on both shifts. At the pool, Danny and his team always keeping the beds, chairs and towels ready during the day and working hard behind the scenes at night getting ready for the next day. At the bars, CC is always ready to have a pleasant conversation, Carlos, Joel, Africa, Daniel, Moises and everyone else on both shifts. Rogelio always making sure that our glasses are never empty and all the new bar staff. Our favorite pizza chef Charlie, with octopus hands, to handle the volume of people in the late hours and the restaurant chefs preparing special meals for us. Leo the DJ always with great mixes, The current mix of playmakers is great! Kevin, Juni, Javi, Monica, Karli y Shirley. Ana Gutierres at the reception, and all the wonderful staff that work behind the scenes to make our stay better every time. The only issue that I have is with the Tequila selection and how every trip appears to be less selection and less quantity of selections available. I hope management addresses the issue because bar staff face guests but don't have control over supply yet guests usually complain directly to them. We have booked three trips already for 2022 and it will be great if the tequila selection is the same as it was on our first trip

We finally made it back to Mexico in October after 2 years of waiting. Had 4 days at Pearl (first time) and 8 days at RM (fourth time). We had a great holiday in both places and met some great people! If we were asked which resort we preferred, we'd say RM, but there wasn't much in it. We had only booked a basic room, but were given a large room with sofas etc - very nice!! The beach at RM was much nicer than Pearl, due to the boom, but both places were very similar. The staff were their usual amazing selves and we were pampered by all. Particular thanks for looking after us so well goes to the following; Breakfast waiters - Lui, Angel, Enrique, and Elenor for her usual efficiency! Lunch staff; Luis, Inocencio, Moses Hot tub bar staff - Elmondo and Gustavo Evening restaurant staff - Israel (Solo), Celso Melange bar - Franciso Watersports staff - Leo and Luis The Playmakers - especially Kevin, Juni and Javi We will be back!

The Best Service, Feeling Safe, Great Amenities but the staff really makes it. The Chef came out and made my wife and I a special meal, thank you Higuel, Emesto Estrella. Thank you servers Domi, Jage, Jonathan, Johones, Ceaser, Celso. The Play Makers Yuni, Kevin, Monica, Javi, Shirley and Karlie made us laugh and comfortable.
