We have been to many resorts and this is one of the best. Facilities are very nice (major exception is tennis courts which are arguably worst I have played on) but tennis is not only reason to visit. Food and drink were VERY good and VERY reasonable priced. Dance was a lot of fun - good DJ and nice mix... More

We have been members of this resort for a number of years and in fact spend most of the summer months visiting the club on a daily basis. We spend most of our visits lounging in and around the pool or soaking in the conversation pool/bar. It's a great place to get an all over tan. We find the prices... More

Had the pleasure of attending the Ponderosa's nude music festival and was thoroughly impressed with everything! The grounds were beautiful even after a week of non-stop rain... the pools were warm and everyone was friendly. GREAT music and atmosphere. Can't wait until next year's event but will be back before then to enjoy all the great facilities here. Thanks for... More

Not only did I witness someone who was apparently a manager, speak to other customers inside the club house as if they were bumbling idiots but I also overheard the owner speaking ill of people who were near the hot tub she was sitting in. This is terribly unfortunate because the place is lovely. The food is over priced and... More

I will be back, but I do have one complaint, a day pass is far to expensive, I stopped in hoping to use a shower a few weeks ago and was told.....$36.00 , I got a shower in a carwash in downtown Milton for two bucks and could have showerred twenty of us.....ok turn around boys and girls.

We just spent three days and two nights at the Ponderosa Nature Resort. What a pleasant find - we just found their website and were able to get a room the same day we called. Everyone was very friendly ... the restaurant and dining service was outstanding. By no way is this a 5-star Caribbean party palace but it is... More

This was almost perfect. If I were to pick fault, I would say that the food choices could be better. Too much junk food for our tastes and difficult for vegetarians. Otherwise the facilities were clean and well-maintained and the staff friendly and helpful. If you've never stayed at a nudist resort before, this one would be a good start!... More
