Very friendly and accommodating staff, my room was small but very adequate and very well maintained as was the entire property. Great restaurant by the bar with a wide variety of options to choose from at a very reasonable price. Huge portions that I could rarely finish. Free happy hour from 5-6:30 every day! I will definitely be back.

If you want a relaxing atmosphere with opportunity to indulge in your wildest dreams it is here. Perfect in all aspects the customer service is second to none. Friendly staff if there are any drawbacks it’s only I wish it were non smoking but that’s just me.

This resort truly creates an experience that is amazing. The amount of relaxing options that you have is incredible and the staff is very kind. The rooms are in great shape and offer many options to choose from. I got the smaller room because I wasn’t spending much time in it and it was cheaper. Happy hour by the pool we got two free drinks a day. Two pool parties throughout the week too! So much fun!!

I have never been to a gay resort before so unsure what I would find. Room was perfect, resort was perfect. Island house was everything I hoped it would be and more. Best vacation ever! And nude men all around was great also!

just returned, and as usual a great time was had..been coming here for 25yrs.. the staff is great...food good...happy hr even better..free starbucks coffee.. the staff managed to keep up with the need for towels...some guest just seem to waist them by putting them out to lie on for a few min/hrs...or to just put around their waist and not reuse them....then they put it in the dirty laundry.. ...i wish a stronger effort from hotel guest to keep and reuse towels if they are not soiled...this helps the staff and our environment... ample tv channels.... 3 adult a plus..and for newbies a good channel to get the layout and what to expect. upgrades to the property continue to improve the overall experience.......new vents and paint in the sauna area.. new glass door into sauna and new one from locker into wet area....gym upgs have been done....and the ac have covers on them.. bed and pillow are comfy and plenty of ac with a ceiling fan ...nice aveda products have returned to the rooms...thx... i always choose the same small room #238 queen bed with bath if avail when i come here alone..which is most of the time.....just my preference tvling alone..its quiet and its just nice to have a bath in room..although i like most others go nude on property and sometimes take advantage of several other outdoor showers or the showers in the wet area....although the property is aware and trying to fix the issue, there is a intermittent problem with water pressure in the sauna area showers..but not an issue in my room shower.. the rooms could use a fresh update...beige n brown leather and fabrics, although masculine, but after 25yrs of the same, its time to update to a fresher more modern look..my opinion.. decking around the pool is showing its age and i hope this is their next upg project.. dont forget the buy 4 stay 3 free option..it makes the room rates easier to swallow as with all trips, there is a wide ,range and type of guys here...from daddys, twinks, singles to couples..young to old..you'll find small groups have come to celebrate a friends birthday...guys from europe.....i always have fun here and get so excited on the beautiful drive down from lauderdale....im quite shy and this sometimes holds me back from having more fun..sometimes you just have to put yourself out there and break the ice...i find out once your do, it makes for meeting others easier... feel free to ask me any questions and make a trip to island house and key west soon
