This review is going to sound bad for the first half, I'm not the type to complain BUT as much as REALLY enjoyed Cypress the room really dragged down the score, had it been an up to date room I would have scored it 5 stars FOR SURE. We looked into this resort after hearing about it on the Naturist Living Show, we usually travel with family that would keep us locked into the "textile" resorts but this year my same sex Partner and I were flying solo so we were free to do whatever we wanted! Had we not heard first hand accounts of how good Cypress Cove is and the good reviews here we may not have decided to stay here, if I had just looked at the website alone which I think needs a total overhaul we may not have booked it either. The photo's are not great, they are small, there isn't very many, they do not show just how beautiful this place is so that is definitely something the owners could improve on. The ONLY downfall to this resort is if you are staying in one of their rooms, besides the new TV's the rooms are very outdated BUT they are clean. They could update the rooms one at a time as budget permits, if you are staying in the RV park then that obviously won't be an issue. The price you pay which I think is a tad high doesn't reflect what you get as far as the room itself goes. For instance, last year we booked an entire new 4 bedroom, 3 bath home on airbnb in a gated community with hot tub at the back door for almost half of what we paid at Cypress. The only other complaint was the slow wifi but at least it was there, surfing is ok, uploading photos or anything else demanding is a no go. Everything else about Cypress is great, top notch, can't say enough good things about it! The pools are great, the hot tubs are great mind you they are really hot, not sure why, especially for Florida, they say they are a max of 104 but they feel hotter than that, we usually sit in the one at our home club in Ontario for 30-45 minutes no problem, it's around 98-100, we couldn't sit in the Cypress tubs for more than 10 minutes tops without getting a headache and feeling light headed. We only ate at the Lakeside Restaurant for breakfast which was good but I can't speak to what the dinners are like. We ate dinner every night at Cheeks as we preferred the Pub atmosphere, bartenders were all great especially Gary! What a guy, he was our entertainment! The food was good and plentiful, we left stuffed every night. Food and drinks are very reasonably priced. All the staff and regulars around the park were all great, very friendly, everyone waves or says hi as they pass on their golf carts. Never had a problem getting chairs at the pool. All the roads are paved and are great for walking or running. Paddle boats, canoes, kayaks all free. Didn't get to do any lake activities as it was a bit windy during our stay. The pools are well shielded from the wind, even if the weather is in the high 60's or low 70's like it was when we were there it still feels very comfortable even hot on the pool decks. Lots of stores near by if you need to run out for something, Lowes, Publix, Walmart. We only left the resort for about 2 hours one day, who wants to wear clothes if you don't have too! Not that it matters but the crowd at Cypress is a little older than our home club, average age is 50-55ish I'd say, our home club, Bare Oaks in Ontario is likely 40ish and has alot more families with children/teens, Cypress is almost exclusively couples, nothing wrong with that either, just wanted to point it out, it is Florida after all, home of the retired snowbirds, we will be two of them soon enough! My only other gripe is the clothing optional rule, our home club is nudity mandatory which has proven to increase traffic at that park, some people were clothed more than they needed to be IMO, the 4 days we were there were slightly cooler than normal for March but we found it plenty warm enough to be nude a large percentage of the time. I believe the nudity manditory helps new people to Naturism adjust faster, especially for Women, when they know without a doubt that weather permitting EVERYONE will be nude then it's a non issue for them, if some people are always clothed especially men then they may get the feeling that some people are just there to "look" I didn't get that impression from anyone when I was there but it's worth mentioning that it is clothing optional and not nudity mandatory. So, my overall recommendation is absolutely stay here, you won't regret it, we had a blast and will be back but we may rent an RV instead of staying in the one of their rooms next time.

If you choose to visit Cypress Cove, you are accepting these core principles and agreeing to abide by them.We have great fun at our dances, but suggestive attire and/or dancing are not welcome. We appreciate a tender moment between two adults in love, but public displays of affection should be discreet and innocent. Adventures in the bedroom should always be kept private.
