“Great Resort, outdated rooms.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

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 The ONLY downfall to this resort is if you are staying in one of their rooms, besides the new TV's the rooms are very outdated BUT they are clean.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.

We just spent a week there and had a very relaxing time. The staff is very helpful. The amenities are all very close to the rooms. There are a good number of streets for taking long walks. The restaurant is large and comfortable. The entertainment is fun. The two pools can accomodate the crowds pretty well. I think every chair was filled a couple of the days we were there. We enjoyed the ping pong tables for taking a break from the sun. It is in many ways a retirement center for fun loving retirees. I would recommend a stay to couples of any age.

We spent three nights at Cypress Cove in February. Having heard so many good things from friends who'd visited, we were looking forward to the trip. As first-time visitors, upon check-in, we were treated to a quick tour of the facilities, which are all conveniently located within a short walk from the rooms.

We stayed in a ground floor room in Bldg#2. The facility definately shows its age, and our C-Pap machines carried with them a strange smell for a week after our return home. The bathroom was very small, and the "standard" toilet could be replaced with an elongated, "comfort height" one for minimal cost.

Due to the relatively cool weather, only one of the two pools was open during our stay. We enjoyed the pool and both hot tubs, and met some very friendly folks (not atypical of nudists, of course).

The staff (office, housekeeping and restaurant) were all marvelous (Karen in the office and Gary, in Cheeks, especially so). We found the food in both Cheeks and the Lakeside to be very tasty and reasonably priced, considering that we were at a resort. In addition, it was very nice to receive a freindly wave from some of the residents as they scurried around in their golf carts. The facility has a great many permanent residents, and the properties that we saw were all very well maintained, some of them luxuriously appointed with fountains in the front gardens.

Would we return? Possibly/probably, although the odor problem would make us pause. All in all, the pluses more than outweigh the minuses, and we would recommend Cypress Cove to nudist friends.

Room Tip: All rooms are very quiet, as car traffic is minimal and low-speed. If you have a lot of luggage (at...

We were glad that you enjoyed your visit. I was concerned about your experience with an unpleasant odor in the room and have looked into it. It turns out it's a humidity issue (Florida, I know). Most of the rooms have adequate ventilation, but we do have an issue with the interior downstairs rooms in one building. We try to rent those rooms last, and run dehumidifiers in them daily when they are not rented. It usually is enough to prevent any unpleasant odor. I'm very sorry that this was not case during your visit, but I assure you this is not a common experience. In fact, I believe your review is the only one that remarks on any odor at all. Please look me up when you visit next time and I'll give you a free upgrade to one of our Apartment Villas. I'm sure you will be quite pleased with it. - Ted Hadley, Owner

We stayed there for several days while on a trip. Enjoyed it so much we came back and stayed two more days!! Staff was so helpful and friendly. The property was clean - especially the pool showers and bathrooms. The grounds and the rooms were well kept. Ate at both the lakeside restraunt and cheeks and they were terrific and resaonably priced with terrific service and good food. I can't wait to go back!! I am just looking for an excuse to go to Florida.

Room Tip: we stayed upstairs and downstairs -- like the upstairs apartment a lot with the outdoor table and ch...

The two room apartments are very nice except for one small thing - the kitchen areas. They provide a kitchen, with normal items such as tableware, plates, etc, but they are inconsistent. One has three frying pans of various sizes, one has one small one. One has a small storage bowl, one has none. The cutlery could use an occasional sharpening as they were all dull.

Otherwise, here are the plusses - two wide screen digital tv's - one in each room. Good area in each room - not cramped. Fairly close to pool/spa as well as bar and restaurant areas.

Room Tip: The numbers that use even number after the 11 - 1120, 1162 ,etc. are ground floor Odd - 1134, 1177...

From UKI living in Spain we needed somewhere to stay before and after Big Nude Boat Cruise. Opted for Cypress Cove because of direct flights from UK to Orlando and had good reports from friends. Having stayed at nudist clubs,resorts & B&Bs in the past we were pleasantly surprised by the facilities offered and the size of the site. Ate in both the restaurant and Cheeks Bar- food good in both, with Cheeks having specials most nights. Probably best to book a table in the restaurant as it was busy every night we ate there. Played Petanque (boules) everyday and were warmly welcomed by other players. We stayed in two different rooms, a twin queen bedded room and a single queen bedded room. Preferred the latter just because it gave us more room. Both had bathroom with basin situated in main room. Fridge and microwave in each room but no other cooking facilities. As we had not hired a car we had to eat onsite, apparently nearest supermarket being 2 miles away.
All the people we met, both guests and staff, were very friendly and helpful. We are booked on another cruise next year and are already deciding whether we should stay for a full week rather than the few days before and after. We are also considering making Cypress Cove our sole destination, rather than an add on to other destinations, for the future.

Cypress Cove is unparalled for the courtesy and helpfulness of their staff! Ive been to only a few other nudist resorts, but Cypress is definitely my favorite. Their pools are wonderful, clean, and aesthetically pleasing. Cheeks is my favorite bar, but Scuttlebutts is fun too. We have had bartenders in both remember us, even tho it was at least 1 1/2 years since they last saw us! Rooms are comfortable, but would love to see some updated decor. AND, they are pet friendly! I love, love, LOVE this resort!

All members of AANR or other nudist clubs or organizations are welcome.First time visitors to Cypress Cove discover that people come in all shapes and sizes and that, as far as our bodies are concerned, all of us have nothing to hide. Once you've socialized in the nude, you realize what an enormous impact what we wear has on who we are. Clothing can lock us into expected roles and behaviors, contributing to the tensions of daily life.You may use the lakefront to adjust at your own pace, letting the weather and comfort be your guide. Once you feel ready, take a dip in one of our heated swimming pools which are for our nude guests only.Our culture and values at Cypress Cove are based on very simple principles; we promote family oriented nudism, which should be wholesome and non-sexual. 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. Discussions of swinging and recruiting are definitely not welcome here.Our goal is to maintain a safe, non-threatening, non-sexual environment where our guests can truly relax and feel comfortable. If you agree, we hope to see you by the pool! ... more   less
