We love everything about Caliente...We always meet new friends in this relaxing clothing optional environment. The service is GREAT...Anasthasia and Stanka at the front desk are always friendly and accommodating...Lisa, Lexi and Colleen are the best servers...can't wait for our next trip!!! L Grayhills

Just returned from our first trip to Caliente Resort and we had a blast. There are actually four accomodation options Hotel - right next to the clubhouse, casitas - one bedroom trailers, condos and townhomes. We stayed in a casita. It is a bit of a walk, about a half mile to the clubhouse, but we did not mind and they have golf cart shuttles that will pick you up and take you back anytime. Only issue with the casita was that online they say they have king beds, they do not. None of the casitas have a king bed - take note. The extra room in the casita was nice, and a bit less expensive than a one bedroom condo. We did get to see a condo and they look very nice! They are actually the farthest from the clubhouse, but again there are shuttles.

The clubhouse, pools, disco, restaurants and facilities are all very nice. 5 star, no. Yes, there are things that need some maintenance, but we did see some of the work happening now that it is getting warmer out.

We had a great crowd the weekend we were there. Standard agenda is layout by the pool, grab some diner, hit the disco, and then hit the hot tub. Caliente is a clothing optional resort and it is leaning more toward the swinger lifestyle than nudist. You will not see any displays of affection during the day, but you will late at night around the hot tub and upper heated pool. If you are a nudist and this bothers you, don't go there after the disco. We never felt threatened and found everyone to be very friendly and respectful. We loved the vibe and energy in the air.

Bottom line is we had a great time and we will be back.

Room Tip: If you want to be right next to the action, get a hotel room. The casitas, condos and townhomes are...

First class all the way. Has all the amenities; pool, spa, tennis, restaurant, bar/lounge, nightclub, and much much more. Good choice of accommodation types. I have stayed here twice and enjoyed both the hotel section and the rental homes. Great neighbourhoods to walk around. Never felt out of place. On both stays was able to be nude 24/7 with no issues whatsoever.

The resort is seriously good fun. We unfortunately were there during the brief cold spell during February 2013, but still had a blast. The two-bedroom condo accommodations were fabulous, clean and perfect. The food at the restaurant was great and drinks were generous. Not cheap by any means, but not costly either. The clothing optional provision allowed us to do our thing without the risk of a nude beach and potential citations.
With great regret though, their hot tub was out of service the weekend we were there but the conversation pools were plenty warm and allowed us to soak in the warmth even though the outside temps were in the 60's.
We can recommend Caliente for those who want to have a bit of a different travel/hotel experience. It was nice to enjoy a bit of European mentality when it comes to the human body. We will return when the weather is just a big warmer.

Room Tip: As for a room that is inside and not near the secondary service entrance gate.

We went to Caliente for their big New Year's Eve party. We'd heard some pretty bad reviews of the hotel area that we were booked in. The rooms certainly weren't 5-star rooms, but they weren't all that bad either. They were clean, the towels & bedding fresh & the furniture in decent shape. Nothing to brag about, but nothing to complain about either. The desk staff, bartenders and golf cart shuttle drivers were incredibly nice. The drinks are expensive but the food is good. Though we decided to leave a day early due to the crappy weather, we'll definitely be going back for some more visits in the future.

My wife and I went to Caliente, Land O Lakes, for the first time over the Thanksgiving weekend. The staff makes you feel very comfortable upon arrival, even the gate keeper was very friendly. We have to admit that the house we rented was not in the best of shape. Its apparent that the owners have abandoned the property. After staying in the house two nights, we went to the front desk and told the girl, Shinka, I think her name was, of all the problems with the house and asked to see other accommodations. She had Mike take us to a condo and a villa, by golf cart. Both places were great, nothing like the house. We went back to the front desk and asked if we could switch and also add a day, which she did on the spot ! That turned our whole weekend from ho hum, to excellent. The pool areas are great, with two heated pools. The outside pool bar was open and the skinny brunette barmaid remembered our names and told everyone else there to take good care of us. Everything there was clean, the "clubhouse" is very nice. Nice people throughout. The restaurant was good. The nightclub has a DJ and he plays music videos on a big screen. Yeah, the vibe is a little like a swing club in the nightclub but nothing was too out there. Women were in all stages of dress to non-dress! Most of the nudity is at the pools. We did see some joggers and bike riders without clothes but for the most part it is mostly around the pool. But nobody acts like people are naked. And there were all shaped and sizes there.
We do plan on going back often and are thinking about buying a place there and retiring there. Think of all the money we would save on clothes ! ! We recommend this place!

Room Tip: Don't stay in Lot 14, the house is in real need of TLC. We stayed in the Villas, two story, thre...

Don't know where to start? Guess with the room the paint was coming off of the molding, the plumbing fixture chrome trim had been eaten away from the water it was so old, and the motel building we stayed in had not been pressure washed in for ever. But that was tolerable since that's not why we came there. If you're looking for a even a 3 star hotel, forget it!

The worst part was the staff service. Friends we met there when there food order came to the pool bar the waitress hollered out as she was walking away from the pool, that their food was at the bar if they wanted to go get it. Uh, thought that's what she was there for? Drinks..don't bother have to go to the bar and order them yourselves. Bar staff in the main bar, was even worse. Waited for half an hour as one server walked by us at least 6 times then finally as a new server came on she checked to see if we wanted a drink. Sitting at the bar wasn't much better we waited for the guy to come for 15 minutes and then he never came back to get our food order or bring our drinks. The only redeeming person was the bartender on duty last night she was what you'd expect from a place like this where you're paying that kind of money.

Don't know if we'd ever come back, maybe since it was a holiday weekend and it was slow overall, but you would think that would be more of a reason for them to have the time and want to serve the few people there?

The pools and hot-tub were nice but that's the only good thing we can say. Compared to Desire MR, no comparison!!
