“A special place for adults.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago via mobile

Paradise Lakes is a clothing optional resort. I have never been in a resort like this before so I cannot compare it to others, but I can say I love it here.The pools are sparkling clean. We are renting a condo. Bright, clean, kitchen, king size bed and a screened porch overlooking a fountain. There are also hotel rooms by the pool that are rented by the resort. Our condo is near the amenities, this is a big place so some units are further away. My only complaint (minor) is all drinks in the clubhouse and pool area must be purchased there. I think their prices are a little high. Wear as much as you want or nothing at all. It is very relaxed and comfortable here. No one judges anyone else. That is refreshing and I dare say good for the soul. I don't want to leave!

We enjoyed Paradise Lakes Resort for four weeks at the end of winter. We are planning a repeat visit for 2015. Thursday evening through Sunday afternoon sated our interest in activities and people. Dancing in the bar, music at the pool, conversation in the hot tub until midnight and beyond.

The quiet of Monday thru Wednesday provided a nice respite. The pools are great. The tennis courts are good. Tanning was easy; and there was also plenty of shade under the palms and umbrellas. The restaurant was satisfactory, convenient, and not expensive. The service was accommodating. My poolside haircut was great.

We enjoyed the part of the resort outside the hotel area, especially the lake, the tennis courts, and strolling naked among the gardens, ponds and private streets of condos, town homes, etc.

Room Tip: The resort includes a variety of privately rented condos in addition to the hotel. We rented one of...

My wife and I went to Paradise Lakes for the day on July 26 for the first time. The people were friendly and the staff was helpful. My wife and I are in our late 30s and there were one or two other couples our age there but for the most part the other guests were older. We did not stay overnight so I can't comment on the hotel or condo rooms, but the pool area is wonderful.

We had a great time! We were there for a relaxing clothes free day by the pool and that's exactly what we got; we also enjoyed the live band that was there in the afternoon. We will definitely be back, thanks for a little piece of paradise!

It's been a few years since we visited here, but we truly loved it. We stayed in a very nice condo there for the week and felt right at home. Everyone is friendly & it's a very comfortable setting for regulars or newbies. Lot's to do & plenty of room ..... not at all crowded.

The staff at Paradise Lakes were pleasant during our visit, but the facility itself is run down and in poor condition. Our room had no hot water for the first day we were there, and the phone never worked. The tv is a joke--tiny and with poor sound quality. The "nightclub" is nothing more than a rustic bar with music, certainly not a location to attract people who desire an upscale evening. The food options were limited and, to say the least, basic. The wine selections were limited to merlot, cabernet sauvignon, and white. Period. We ordered gin and tonics in the Key West bar/restaurant one night, and they had almost no alcohol. The supposed gin bottle clearly had been watered down.

Room Tip: We had the most expensive room in the place, and it was still tiny and unpleasant.

Terrible old motel style rooms. A small TV from the '70s. No refrigerator, no closet to hang cloths, no hair dryer, no maid service, no safe. An old fashioned window style air conditioner that roared off and on all night. The resort nickel and dimes you on every possible opportunity. A towel for the beach is $5 per day for each towel with a $40 deposit for each towel. Even though we returned the towels we had to ask for the $80 deposit to be taken off. The food in both restaurants is atrocious.
Breakfast of eggs and bacon is served in a styrofoam To Go box even in the restaurant. At dinner they served a well done rib eye for rare. I asked for a recook and got a med well. Disgusting especially as everything is 5 star prices in a 1 star motel.
If you like naked geriatrics and morbidly obese people of 350 lbs plus, this is the place for you, as the majority of the guests fall in one of these categories. Oh, and don't dare to try to bring in any liquor as they will charge your credit card $300 for each bottle.

Room Tip: There are none. I paid extra for a deluxe room, so I would hate to see a standard room.

Stayed for 4 nights, 2 nights I was the only person in the hotel, The room was clean and the girl who cleaned it was very nice, The room had blinds the did not work, had a light out side the door so bright it was like daylight in the room, also has music for the pool area that plays untill the bar closes at 1 or 2 in the morning, could not sleep due the the noise, management does not care, when you pay 200.00 a night for a room you want quiet when you retire for the evening, No pop machines on the property if you want a drink must be purchased at the bar, one bartender was good, the other one never says a word just looks at you, One young lady named candy was very nice at the bar . I It seems like the hotel guests are a burden to the resort. They seem to cater to the members, who don't seem to spend money at the resort. They need to offer summer season specials to fill the room .

Room Tip: All ablut the same
