We've been to SMI a few times now, each time on Day Passes. The wife and I both found it to be wonderfully relaxing. The dress code, or lack thereof, immediately makes for an open, chill atmosphere. We've only stayed late enough during one of our visits to get to partake in the small dance/club are that they have, we... More

My husband and I went to Sea Mountain as a way to get a two night break from our kids (first time in four years). We're active in the lifestyle, but there was zero pressure to do anything other than lounge by the pool and interact with REAL couples that clearly love and respect each other as much as we... More

My wife and I have been to the resort three different times and we will keep going back. The staff are amazing fun loving people and they make sure that you have everything you need to have an amazing time. We highly recommend the resort. The only bad time we have had is when it is time to check out!... More

Total freedom for open minded couples. Relaxing environment. Very friendly staff. The couples massages are amazing. If you go for day spa, I would recommend bringing your own food (pack a picnic cooler). The only lunch served is always Chinese chicken salad, chips and cookies. There is no other choice.

This is the place to come and relax and have as little or as much fun as you want. We have been here numerous times and just love the relaxing atmosphere. We don't come here for the gourmet food or to be entertained by the awesome staff, we come here to enjoy the sun, be nude, enjoy the pool and... More

We heard from another couple that Sea Mountain Inn was a great place to stay so we decided to book a suite for 3 nights from Thursday to Sunday. We had our best vacation ever!! The atmosphere is one of complete freedom. Everyone we met there was super friendly including the great staff. You can bask in the sunshine, get... More

It was a great experience overall. Judgement free environment. Our room was really nice and the staff was friendly. The music was fun. If you want an interesting and relaxing weekend, we highly recommend it! Dewey was a great host. We hope to be back soon!

We recently returned from our sixth stay at Sea mountain Inn and Resort. As we lay out soaking in the warmth of the sun, luxuriating in the soft winds blowing across our bodies, nodding to the soulful sounds of reggae music in the background, we reminisced about our first visit to this wonderful oasis. About five years ago, we took... More

We have stayed at similar resorts, Hedo in Jamaica & Terra Cotta in Palm Springs and we were disappointed here. The resort is run by a number of very young girls. Interesting but some are lazy and/or poorly trained. Also, one of the biggest problems for us is the fact this place is 'smoker friendly'. Wow.... surprising when California was... More

Is Dewey is a Young girl who runs the Sea Mountain Hotel Club Spa ? He will love that one! Actually SMI Sea Mountain Resort and Spa Hotel and Club is run by an all female chain smoking staff who flick ashes on all the guests and throws their cigarette butts in the pools. -NOT -- We do jest, but...
