I stayed at Club Fantastico Nov 2012 with my boyfriend. It was our first time in a naturist resort and we researched many options before reserving Club Fantastico. Club Fantastico is high on a hill neighbored by a number of large private villas. At the bottom of the hill (5-10 mins walking) is Orient Bay/Bikini beach. There is a pharmacy and a few hotels, restaurants and shops around the beach area. Club Fantastico is quiet and private without being isolated. Its easy to take a cab into Grand Case or Marigot for dinner, although next time I would probably rent a car from Chloe who can arrange it for you.
Chloe and Thierry are great hosts. All of the other guests were very nice and the atmosphere was chill, never any gawkers or weirdness. All of the common areas are open air, there is a living room style area with a large screen TV (no tvs in the rooms) and chairs, wifi, a well stocked bar and several dining tables. The back of the house is the pool area with hot tub, bar and four out door tiled showers. The rooms pretty much open into this patio. As Chloe told me on our first interaction most guests experience some level of undress during their stay but you should feel free to wear what you want. At times people were nude, partially dressed or completely dressed.
I've read all of the trip advisor reviews and was mystified by the dirty pool comment left by a past customer. It was crystal clear every day, no leaves or dirt, I saw Thierry cleaning it several times. I personally swam in it every day. The rooms were clean and the common areas clean. As etiquette suggests all guests would put a towel between themselves and the furniture.
You can be nude on Orient Bay Beach which is a nice area, where you can rent beach chairs and an umbrella and we borrowed some cups and a bottle of wine to bring with us making it a very pleasant day. Don't miss out on Thierry's cooking. You may request to dine in at Club Fantastico and Thierry will cook for you, the cost is reasonable and better than many of the fancy restaurants in Grand Case and Marigot. One night all of the guests dined together and the last night it was just my boyfriend and I. Breakfast was also great fresh baquettes every day, cheese, ham, coffee, juice, fresh fruit and sometimes croissants or eggs (at request). Chloe and Thierry were very kind to accommodate requests such as stocking a favorite liquor we asked for and popping up with random chocolates in the afternoon.
I slept well, Club Fantasico is peaceful and romantic, we stayed in an ocean view room which is slightly more money but worthwhile in my opinion. We had a large yellow room, the bathroom and bidet are attached, there was a bath tub, showers are outdoors. Several of the other guests were repeat customers many times over and we agreed we will stay there again next time we are in St. Martin. The feel is less like a hotel and more like you are staying at your friend's awesome villa.
The ocean view room we stayed in was slightly more money than the others but worth it.
