“Good but not nude”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

I actually thought Hedonism was a nude resort but there is a growing number of people on the nude side that wear clothes. The security guards are supposed to talk to people who break the rules but many of them are lazy. It would always start early in the morning with groups of people would walk around fully clothed. Then other people would see this and they would start to put their clothes back on. As I woman I started to feel very self conscious, so I put my clothes back on. Pretty soon we all had our clothes on. It did spoil the atmosphere for us.

I did enjoy the food though and the staff were mostly friendly.

First of all, do not go to this resort unless you are open to crazy outfits, actions and scenery. The people here are all fun, friendly and mostly naked! Also, do not go expecting beautiful rooms or great food. The rooms are painted in an open airy white with green and blue accents, but there are no special amenities other than a coffee pot, room safe and tv. Wireless is NOT included unless you buy a package. The bathrooms are very small and the bath gel and shampoo are of the dispenser kind in the shower. The rooms are kept clean though and our maid was the sweetest woman ever. All in all, the resort looks tired. The food is average. I mostly ate from the salad and fruit and cheese bar, though the pasta bar was good! Wines are nothing special either, though there are premium wines for sale.

There is a "prude" side and a "nude" side. The beach is not really all that beautiful, but it is quiet and without waves. The prude side has some straw market type vendors selling carvings, art and jewelry. They are very polite and will respect your no if you do not want to buy anything. There is also a pool, water slide, cabanas and a volleyball net. There is a fitness room with 15 spin bikes (or 12), mats, free weights, machines and fitness classes in the mornings. There is also a spa for manicures, pedicures, massages (and facials?)

The nude side has a pool, pool bar and snack shack-great grilled cheeses and jerk chicken! Bathing suits are NOT allowed on this side so there are no gawkers. Everyone is friendly! Fun lunch time games are held daily with coupons for $10 each awarded to be used in the gift shop. People are low key, simply basking in the sun, gathered around tables in the pool drinking cocktails or playing bocce ball on the beach. A few read, but most are enjoying just talking. Wearing nothing really takes away any social cover ups one might try to employ and you will find absolutely NO socioeconomic lines drawn! We have made some great friends. Most people are middle aged, but there are a few older guests and some in their 20's and 30's. NO CHILDREN

Night time becomes much more sexy however. There are nightly themes; repeat visitors amass outfits for the themes over the years and contests are held on Lingerie night and black and white night for best outfits. Pirate night, fetish night, rock and roll night, school night are other themes. Some guests go all out with the costumes. Some wear regular clothes! Whatever-It all works! no one judges and everyone actually is quite complentary of others' outfits. It does take a certain amount of bravery to wear some of them actually, but the smiles of the husbands are non ending! There is always a show or music after dinner on the open air stage (the dining is all open), and there is a disco and piano bar to move to after that. This August was very slow and the disco really had no takers for very long and we never made it to the piano bar. But this was low season. In other times of year, it supposedly is quite hopping.

Swingers and people curious about that do come to this resort. BUT, those who don't participate in these activities also come. As a couple who falls into this latter category, I can attest that there was no pressure from anyone on us. We went to enjoy the sun, all inclusive food and drink opportunity and a crazy kind of freedom of wearing sexy clothes in an accepting environment that could not be worn in our home town. Everyone seemed to be all about fun and acting silly. A grown up sexy disney land. Sort of!

The entertainment staff is super friendly and very good at engaging with guests. They maintained the line between professionalism and friendliness quite well. The dive staff is knowledgeable and safety conscious. While the coral reef here is not in great shape, I would not pass up free diving; one can always use refreshing of skills. Derrick and Grantley have been there for years; they know their stuff and their area of the ocean.

Room Tip: hmmm the prude side has cheaper rooms. Even if you are going to frequent the nude beach side, you...

This place is a non-stop party. The food is excellent, the staff is wonderful and the rooms are comfortable. It's one of the best vacations I've ever had. Don't be shocked by all the naked people! The best bodies are always on the Prude beach, so don't be shy about sunbathing nude. It's an incredible experience to be completely uninhibited and free from worry. Get a drink, get naked and don't forget to put on sunscreen--ahem--everywhere!

That being said, the staff is not the best at cleaning the rooms. They will not change the sheets unless you instruct them to do so. The drinks and food are top notch at any of the restaurants and even the buffet is wonderful.

This was our third trip to Hedonism. Our first was at the same time last year and the second was in April with Kitten n Angel's group. We loved the group that we went with in April. The leaders were great and we met a lot of cool people that we may not have had we not been with a group. The resort was super full in April and almost empty for both of our August trips - giving two different vibes, both great.

The energy level of the resort (both staff and guests) was high even though the hotel was at 30% occupancy. We had the pleasure of meeting John and the Lovely Janet at the beginning of our trip and towards the end had the pleasure of once again partying with Harry and his harem.

We met a lot of great people and had some new experiences. Many thanks to J and I, JT and K, D and P, M and H! The crazy Irish newlyweds (D and J) who really knew how to party, just to name a few initials. The body shots were fun, mid-day hot tub was HOT, the grotto session with JT and K was even hotter. Many thanks to Christopher for carving us the beautiful plaque that he installed above the nude pool bar for us.

The Entertainment Coordinators were over the top! It was nice to see the familiar faces such as Fabian, Sherea, Diana, Denice, Vanessa, Eton, Miguel, Nick and the fabulous Winston along with the great new additions of Riccardo, Owanna, Ashiel, Rahim. From what we saw these four have a bright future ahead of them.

We had a great time in the Piano Bar as usual. Dion and Stephanie put on a great show every night. Saturday, August 30th was a night like no other! The ECs invaded the already electric atmosphere of the Piano Bar and some incredible dirty dancing made the show unbelievable! The crowd was overwhelmed - many in tears, most with goosebumps! Patrick, the spa manager, showed his great singing talent and entertained us with his infectious personality.

Winston's performances were top notch as usual - he even sang an opera song in Italian to a couple celebrating their 10th anniversary.

The nightly shows in the dining room were great. We always sat in the front row to get a better view. The performers show great talent with amazing energy and they look like they're having fun. We were spoiled by them coming to speak to us at our table when they had a free minute.

We have no idea where the Prude pool is, or even if it exists because we LOVE the scene at the nude pool. The PDAs always heighten the enjoyment level both seeing and being seen. The games hosted by the ECs are very entertaining, to say the least, and we participated in most activities. We won a few bottles of rum and some gift certificates that we used in the lifestyle boutique.

The new security company did a great job of making the female half of our couple feel secure, especially late at night by always being present and visible but discreet at the same time.

The rooms were clean, the food was good, the staff was great. We had two water pipe breaks on the roof of our building and it was repaired promptly.

It being our third time at the resort in one year, we were developing relationships with a lot of the staff members - especially the bartenders, the wait staff in the dining room, and cooks in the dining room and the pool. A lot of them remembered our names and made us feel at home.

We took the opportunity this trip to explore the whole resort and everybody should do it at least once.

Upon arrival swift check in, we booked an ocean view room on the nude side, location ideal room not so ideal we paid nearly £5k all in and you get no balcony just a window the room was ok but for that amount of cash expecting a little more I even asked to upgrade to next door with a balcony and jakuzzi but they wanted another $2800 for the room surely $50 per night should of done it seeing as it was empty bad PR. Shower very good if you could work it out windows don't think they've been cleaned this year drawer and cupboards like being in the 70's liked the ceiling mirror. Think this resort could be very good pending on when you visit on our two week visit at a guess 15% full so very quiet they even brought in about a dozen hookers over the weekends to try and liven the atmosphere up a little a lot of over weight aged yanks albeit nice folk other times of year if busy could be great! food first week excellent owner visiting second week not as good a lot of things shut speciallity restaurants often closed guess due to the Low capacity, took the boat over to booby cay Iseland for some lovely lobster, nightclub rubbish needs a revamp and a decent DJ piano bar good staff very good butt what would it be like when busy who knows, never met anyone who wasn't on a bong or pipe as we aren't pot heads felt a little out of place but still had fun being naked
Oh forgot to mention they tried to fine me for smoking a cigarette in the room when the smell coming through the A/C was pot to which I refused to pay and they backed down.
Would we go back probably not as for the same money you can get better in Mexico perhaps if when we were their the capacity was more maybe but Mexico still swings it for us.

Room Tip: Stay on the prude side cheaper same room still walk around naked

We arrived on a Saturday and we spent an absurd amount of money for a ground level, ocean view hotel room. We put our passports and wallet in the safe and unpacked everything else. We noticed the back patio door seemed to have a problem with locking. We were given a code for the back patio door but it didn't seem to do anything specific since the door could be opened without the code. We locked the door from the inside when we went to dinner. After dinner we changed and then went to the pool. When we came back from the pool, through the front door, we noticed the back patio door was open and the curtain pulled back. We also noticed sandy footprints on a towel we left by the back door. My husband is a size 10 shoe and these were probably size 12. We looked around the room and noticed the watch my husband took off before going to the pool was gone, about 45.00 in cash sitting on the desk was gone, his cell phone on the nightstand along with the chargers was gone and my phone that was in my purse was gone. We called the front desk and reported the robbery. The manager on duty said we probably left the door open. We explained we didn't leave the door open. He said well then you gave the code to someone and we told him we didn't give the code because we don't even understand the purpose of the code. We told him if the door is not locked from the inside it can be opened without a code. He insisted we were wrong and when we asked him to see for himself he declined saying he knows the doors lock properly. We asked for the police to be called and he said calling the police will only cause more problems. When we insisted the police be called he said let me show what they will do and then 3 of his security guards he brought with him went through all our drawers, our suitcases, the safe, everything on the desk. Looking for what? I guess the missing items because they thought we were lying? He then said the police will be much worse. We asked for another room that was more secure and he said there is nothing wrong with our room. I can not begin to explain how completely weird this entire discussion was. But we finally started to get what he was saying and that is they would be doing nothing about it and calling the police would make it worse for us. Why worse for us? We are in a third world country with no phones and are being clearly told we also have absolutely no rights. We asked how we call out of the room to cancel our phones and we were told no outgoing calls can be placed unless they dial from the front desk for us. Talk about feeling completely helpless. So we made two calls with them dialing for us and one was to suspend our phones and another was to a family member to tell them what happened just in case. Just in case what? Who knows! But we have never felt more uncomfortable in our lives and we were the ones that were robbed! We never heard from management again, no apologies were ever given, no comp to say they are sorry for what happened - nothing. Nothing really seemed all that awesome after that. I can not even tell you how glad we were to be back on US soil.

Room Tip: You only get free wi-fi if you pay for the really expensive ocean view room, which we did. But it d...

Dear Farmgirl99,
The safety and security of our guests and their possessions are of paramount concern to us and a matter that we treat with the utmost priority.
When you reported your items missing our Security Supervisor along with our Night Manager responded. They with your permission checked the room. When the items were not located they in fact asked you and the other guest in the room if you would like us to call the Police. The reports I have indicate that you declined to have the Police come. I will not disclose why I believe you made that decision, but we are both aware of the reason. Our Night Manager and Security Supervisor advised that if at any time you changed your mind we could still have the police come and do an investigation and report.
Our investigations in your presence showed no signs of forced entry to the room and all the keycard entries on our log were properly accounted for.
We have a good relationship with the local Police Force and have always found them to be responsive and helpful and would never deter a guest from calling them for any reason whatsoever. The Police Emergency Number can also be called Toll Free directly from the Guest Room.
I personally along with our Hotel Manager and Maintenance Manager went down to check the locking mechanism on the Patio Door of the room you stayed in. It’s functioning as it was designed to, when you exit through the patio door from the room to the Jacuzzi deck and the door is closed behind you it cannot be opened from outside without entering the code into the keypad, I tried at least three times.
I’m available for further discussion on this matter and can be reached at kevinlevee@hedonism.com

Regards,
Kevin Levee

Just returned from my 1st trip to Hedonism 2, it will not be my last. Since it was my Wife an i's first time we did a lot of research and decided to get the Club Mobay. Coming home it was not that big of a deal but when you Arrive in Jamaica Club Mobay is great!!!! They gots us when we got off the plane and walked us to the front of every line. Super Nice (like all the Jamaicans we encountered). Then we went to the Club Mobay lounge to wait for our Shuttle. We rode with "No Worries Mike" who gave us a detailed history of everything we saw. Mike stopped at a little Bar at the half way mark to get some Libations :-) We get to Hedo!!!!! We hear WELCOME HOME ..... Check in was quick. We get to our room on the Prude Side which was Just Fine. Not the Best Room But not Worst , we had a view of the Ocean and the Prude Beach . We did not spend a lot of time in the Room. Now here's the MEAT!!!! The Food was great at the Buffet every meal. I didn't like "Harry San" which is like Benihana ( I don't like Benihana either) . Did not go to the Italian restaurant there. The Buffet had everything from jerk chicken to Grilled Lobster Tails thru the week stay. Members of the staff eat and sit with you after asking every meal. I loved that , made new friends that helped me being my first time at Hedo and in Jamaica . The Entertainers (Diana , Fabian and Song Bird OWANA ) felt like my Family before I Left. The Nightly Shows were INCREDIBLE! Great Dancers , incredible singers and very personable . They made me Want to Participate. Great Gym. Gift Shop has all the Outfits you need. I'm bringing an empty suitcase next time because the stuff I bought to wear was way more Expensive and not as nice as the stuff in the gift shop. Great Nightclub and Piano Bar to go to after the Shows. Hedo 2 is way more than is Reputation . The People Were Great . Not just the Staff but Guest too. Wife and I went nude on the Nude and Prude side (prude side is clothing optional). They're People there in the "Lifestyle" but once they know you are not they are still nice to you. They still party with you. The Swinger will educate you on the Lifestyle in case you want to Join lol. Prude side was a lot Nicer appearance wise. It had less traffic because the nude side is a 24 hour party at the Hot Tub. You will see things at the nude hot tub all day that you have only seen in a XXX movie. Also after a lot of drinks the nude hot Tub can get a little touchy Feely around 3am when it's Pitch Dark. The Party is There if you Want it but No is an Option that is Respected. There is plenty to do. Catamaran to Rick's is recommended. I plan on a Once a Year trip to Hedo 2..... I loved it
