“Pleasant stay---will return”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2011

Have been a "daytrippers" to Club O in the past but never stayed until this trip. Studios are small and compact. No TV except in club room. Cooking utensils are hit and miss--- ours were OK, friends' were excellent. The real assets of Club O are the staff. From the cleaning ladies to the restaurant staff to the front desk everyone was extremely helpful and kind. Boutique/grocery prices are in line with French side prices--- Dutch side prices are better but with much further drive--- but even shopping here is clothing optional! Music at the bar is every nite except Sundays and Tuesdays and the clothing optional parties are well-known. Food at restaurant is very good but Grand Case food is even better. Go and experience Club O!

We just returned from a 10 night stay at Club Orient. It was our twentieth annual December stay and the best. Wearing nothing but sun screen seems totally natural at ClubO and even a woman whose husband surprised her by booking a nudist vacation became comfortable enough to go nude and vow to return next year. The beach was wide and sugar white. The palm trees and flowering shrubs beautiful. We enjoyed dinning at the Papagayo restaurant with dancing and karaoke after dinner without dressing. We met many wonderful people we hope to keep in touch with in the future, as well many old friends who return every year at the same time as we will next year.

Club O is the perfect setting for a clothes free holiday. Superb accomodation set in beautiful grounds, great customer care, pleasant bar, well equipped shop ....

We had a wonderful time swimming in the warm, clear and calm sea, lounging on the pure white beach on the free sun loungers.

Downside no pool, pricey and the visitors from the Cruise ships walking up and down the beach

We have stayed at Club O seven times in the past 12 years and have committed to trying to make it at least once every year from now on. From the moment you check in everyone you encounter, from the front desk staff, to the terrific women in Le'Boutique store, to the security guards that make the place so secure, to the guests themselves, EVERYONE make you feel welcome. As many have stated, when you are nude you don't just remove clothes; you remove barriers to communication. People are so open and approachable. We have made friends over the years with several couples we have gotten to know on the beach and now we try to overlap our trips with theirs so that we can rekindle our relationships.

It is a very accepting crowd. Someone in a previous posting asked whether gay couples would be accepted. We were there a few years ago and there was a couple staying there made up of a female and a pre-op transexual male. We were in the office the day they checked out and overheard them telling the front desk staff how apprehensive they had been about staying at a nude resort where clothing would not hide his physical difference, and how grateful they were that other guests had been friendly and accepting of them, and that they would be back again.

The resort has everything you need. Sometimes it is cathartic to get away from TV for a while. I am mid-50's, but am a night owl, and also wish things didn't shut down at 10 PM, but my wife and I just go back to our waterfront chalet, sit sipping cocktails in the patio chairs outside our unit, and enjoy the breeze and the ocean sounds. It is really unbelievably relaxing the entire time we are there. And for a type-A self-employed person it is the only time all year that I truly feel that way.

Just give it a try. Nudity comes very naturally in a place where it is completely acceptable, like Club Orient, and you can only believe how wonderful it is if you give it a try.

We have been traveling at least once or twice a year to Club Orient for 6 years; it is truthfully a very special place. Without question it should be on everyone’s bucket list but be forewarned... you may get very hooked like us. We have been fortunate to travel the world and have stayed at some of the truly great resorts but there is something about Club O that keeps calling us back. If you need pretentious trappings and people to make your vacation a success, you will be disappointed. If you truly want to totally relax in a very natural setting then this resort may be for you. Off the resort you have access to two very different islands in one. The Dutch side is very built up with shopping and casinos. The French side is more low key but with superb restaurants. Enjoy!!!

The experience and ambaence of this great adult resort simply is hard to put into words. With the exception of our telephone not working (outside unit problem and was offered to move but declined)was as perfect as it gets. We met friends there from previous trips, sailed the Tiko did the Karaoke and dined at the Perch and Papgayos. Most people we met were long term married couplkes such as ourselves who travled from far away locations to repeat there expeience here. The people the partying and nude openess added a total dimension to this week in St. Martin. We were able to rent a car and travel the island from our timeshare week on the Dutch side to a nother week on the French side. Only here you can do that and we have been for 15 years. Really looking forward to our next stay at Club Orient. There have been many changes check their website Tim

Really fine time. The folks at the resort make us feel welcome, to the point that we don't, even though we should, go off lot to the really excellent restaurants on the island. The living units are all in little buildings near (and generally in sight of) the beach and Orient Bay, just about the best body of water to swim and laze in in the world. If you want to socialize, there are a lot of really nice people here. If you want to sit and read, they will leave you alone.
If, on the other hand, you want to take advantage of the fact that most of the people here are not wearing any clothes and sneak pictures, you may find the place, and the other guests of the hotel, a little less welcoming.
