If you're looking for an EROTIC, no-attitude resort for gay men, this is the place. I've stayed at the Worthington/Alcazar on several occasions over the years and never have been disappointed. The staff are friendly and accommodating, the rooms are clean, fresh, and affordable (especially compared to those of nearby resorts), and the grounds are immaculate (and always getting better). The housekeepers are over-the-top friendly and consistently exude warmth through smiles, laughter, and prompt assistance with any needs or concerns you may have. As for the guests, most are in their mid-30s-50s, professional, in-shape, gregarious, and without "attitude." That said, the occasional "twink" or "twink couple" choose to stay at this resort, but if you're under 30, you may find few who share your decade of birth; likewise, men over 60 are a rare breed here as well, though not without occasional representation.
Favorites: the TWO 24-hour pools and the large hot tub; private atmosphere; lush grounds; clean and up-to-date facilities (including the pools, weight room, rooms, and grounds); friendly staff; convenient location (near the beach, restaurants, and shopping...but not the bars, unfortunately); day-passes for visitors, specifically locals and men staying is less-desirable resorts; outdoor music poolside; lots of frisky play at all hours; always a decent crowd over the weekend; happy hour on Saturday; beach towels.
Criticisms: the daily breakfast, while pretty decent, needs to include somewhat higher-quality prepackaged danishes/muffins/bagels; the outdoor music is completely eliminated around 8:00 PM, though simply lowering the volume would be sufficient in order to please both late-night swimmers and sleepy guests. That's it... Those are my criticisms of this resort...hardly worth mentioning, yet hopefully taken into consideration.
If you want a fun, affordable, "playful" environment where clothing is optional and "attitude" is minimal, consider the Worthington/Alcazar Guest House. However, if you do stay at this resort, be prepared to mingle!!!
