Second time was a charm...

Posted May 23, 2017
Pros: Everything!
Location: Try the White and Blue message tent on the walk to PM. You won't be disappointed...
We cannot say enough about the staff and level of service. The people have such warm hearts and we look forward to many return trips. If you have never tried a clothing optional (CO) resort, this is one of the best in the world and the friendliness of the staff, will make your stay absolutely comfortable. p.s. Try the scuba certification here. The staff (Caesar and Adolfo) were amazing to work with....

Great views of the beach and pool, awesome hot tub

Posted May 16, 2017
Pros: Only 88 rooms, but things are laid out well. Staff was awesome, they knew your name and drink preference in 1 day. Staff was so friendly
Cons: Several slippery wet spots around the pool deck and in the spa area. The evening shows started at 10:30 at night, to late for us.
Location: There is a small fishing village about a 15 minute walk away
The beach was narrow but had plenty of room for volleyball and many beach chairs, the food was overall great, the wait staff was awesome with 3 restaurants to choose from. The drinks were good with them being on the strong side (all good there) Check in and check out went really fast. The weight room was very new and plenty of room to workout.

Must do! But only for the open minded

Posted Apr 29, 2017
This place was fab. It was my husband's first trip to Mexico and he is hooked. I'm not a fan of all inclusive, but we will be back. The sooner the better! Everyone from the staff to vacationers were professional and friendly. The scuba on site was a plus, fun, and we felt very safe. We live in a very religious area and get tired of all the hypocrisy. There is NONE of that here. Everyone just wants to have a great time. It doesn't matter where you are from, what you look like, or you're preferences. Please don't come if you like to judge. This is not the place for you. Go to a church retreat or something. Everything was a pro except for the minor issues we encountered: Beds by pool are reserved for members The hair dryers are low voltage No robes in room They need a pastry chef No wipes available No mouthwash in restrooms We are not against buying in, but want to talk to others that use it to go other places than their resorts In all, it was a favorite trip and we go somewhere at least once a month. A must do!

Unbelievable Vacation!!!!

Posted Apr 12, 2017
This is the best couples only place!!!! The freedom of being naked was incredible. It was fun, friendly, and we were treated like a queen and king. The resort is classy, immaculate, accommodating, well run and the food is amazing!!!! I highly recommend this resort to anyone who has a sitter for their kids, wants the freedom of not wearing a wet bathing suit and wants to be royalty!!!!

Adult Spring Break

Posted Apr 10, 2017
This place is an adult spring break. Not for those who are easily offended. The Saturday foam party is fun.

WOW!

Posted Mar 1, 2017
Pros: What I loved most about this hotel is that everyone respects one another's space, privacy and comfortable level.
Cons: More food variety
Location: Love the closeness to the ocean. Wish there was a shuttle that takes people to near by towns or stores to browse and etc.
This is my first time at this resort. I am amazed! Everything is just WOW including the staff that greets you the moment you arrive.
