We like to joke that these places are like Disneyland…for adults! Ha! Seriously, though, I can’t think of another description for it.
Let me start off by saying that these places are pricy, and for a reason. Not only do they cater to a very specific clientele, but their staff is paid to cater to their every single need of the guests while being very discreet and professional. I was pleasantly surprised, after our first visit, to realize that it’s worth every penny.
So, a typical day. You get to the hotel and check in, which is a breeze, because everything’s all ready and waiting for you and all you have to do is get your bracelet and go. You are served champagne while you are checking in, then you’re taken to your room. Champagne and appetizers are waiting in your room when you arrive. The rooms are great – the ones we stay in are huge with a huge Jacuzzi in the room itself.
The check in is pretty much the last time you’ll be wearing any substantial clothing until you’re ready to check out. We usually strip immediately and then head to the pool area, where everyone is just enjoying the sun naked, reading and sipping on cocktails, sleeping or swimming. There’s staff who walks around getting drink orders. When I say the service is exceptional, I mean it. My drink isn’t even half way done when I’m already getting a new one without asking. If I don’t want to get up to eat lunch at one of the restaurants, I can also ask them to bring me food, but since it’s a buffet, I usually just go get it myself and bring it to my lounge chair and eat there. Plate’s taken away pretty much as soon as I’m done. I often sleep while I lounge and my husband plays on his iPad and reads.
Around 3, people start migrating to the hot tub area. It’s enormous, with a swim up bar and a few bartenders who also do anything you ask (in addition to getting you drinks). Need a towel, flip flops, whatever, just ask and you receive. In the hot tub, people chat, get to know each other and sometimes play up there before everyone goes their separate way to get ready for dinner. At night, the women go all out in the sexy wear (anything goes!) while the men dress nicely. There are three sit down restaurants and you can go to whichever one you want. The food is pretty amazing – my husband and I are total foodies, so we appreciate good food and drink and we’ve never had a complaint about the food at these places.
After dinner everyone goes to the main outdoor lounge for entertainment, which varies. We’ve seen everything from sexy games to firedancers to acrobats to singers. It’s a really fun time and they encourage crowd participation, which makes it more fun. After that’s over, people usually head to the in-house club to dance and sometimes play (they have a play room in the nightclub). Hubby and I prefer the hot tub, so we only rarely go to the nightclub.
Nighttime at the hot tub is the most fun part, at least for us. Everyone’s relaxed, everyone’s horny and everyone just wants to have a good time. It can get CRAZY up there, and even if my husband and I do nothing with anyone else, just watching the craziness is FUN. We have a friend whose favorite thing is to lay on the bar of the swim up bar, have the bartender pour chocolate syrup all over her and then have people lick it off her. And that’s at the beginning of the night! Things only get crazier the later it gets.
The hot tub area closes at 3AM and then people go their separate ways, usually in pairs or groups, to their rooms. You do your thing and then eventually go to sleep, wake up and repeat until the day you check out.
I have to stress that the service at these places is unparalleled. If you’re in the middle of playing with a couple and realize you’ve suddenly run out of champagne, just call the concierge and one will be at your room door in like 30 seconds. If you have a special diet, tell the cooks and you’ll be accommodated. It’s amazing. No, it’s not weird to see naked people everywhere because you’re naked, too, and naked people are sexy and trust me, you can’t help but feel sexy at these places. The staff is clothed and don’t bat an eye at the nakedness, since they see it every day. The place is crazy hygienic. Obviously you have to always sit on a towel, everything is cleaned top to bottom while the guests are sleeping (I’ve witnessed it myself); the hot tub is drained and cleaned every night. The beaches are beautiful and you can also go nude (swimming naked is pretty much the best thing ever). Everything is included in terms of food and drink. I’ve never seen any illegal drug action and from what I understand, that’s not tolerated, ever.
Let me know if you have any more questions!
