Caliente or Cypress cove
      #1476568 - 02/04/13 01:51 PM (65.27.96.207)

We will be in Florida for 10 days at the end of the month and want to spend 4 days at one of these resorts. I've read numerous reviews on-line but tend to respect this forum's opinions more then most. We are late 40s, not life-stylers but don't care what goes on around us. We are just looking for a place to relax and have some fun - with each other. Any comments would be appreciated.

Been to both and find The Cove to be the atmosphere I am most comfortable in. I prefer a family friendly atmosphere, even if there aren't kids around. The grounds are beautiful and people friendly. I hope to get there one day in July.

We spent a week in both

Cypress Cove is the winner in our book. Good restaurant, good bars, good facilities (pool, tennis, shuffle, golf and lodging), etc.

Caliente has a fancier lobby building but has a less comfortable feel in our view. Can't just go straight to pools from room, have to go through the lobby/front desk to get to bar/pools. (Can't bring a can of beer with you, even if you bought it at pool bar) They assume your smuggling. The lifestylers are there. On various nights you will be the odd ball with no clothes on.

Caliente would be fine for a daytrip to the pools if you don't mind NOT bringing your own beer/snacks.

Unless you are lookin for lifestyle, I'd go to the Cove.

I have been to both, and would love to be at either right now! If I had to choose, it would be Cyrpress. In recent years, Caliente management has become greedy and it seems to be all about the money and not the quality of service.

I think they have big mortgages to pay off for their facilties and that drives some of their decisions.

Cypress Cove for sure! Great people, excellent facilities, and an ambiance that reminds us of our "home resort", Avalon in Paw Paw, WV just west of the DC Metro area!

The Cove wins for pure relaxation plus FUN!
(Come to the Cove for Mardi Gras next Monday and Tuesday 2/11,12! There's a dance Monday night and then on Fat Tuesday there will be body painting and a parade followed by an outdoor party with great music, 50/50 drawing plus door prizes and free food!)

Thank-you for all the positive comments. The Cove it is! We will be there from Monday Feb. 25th to Thursday the 28th. maybe longer if we really enjoy it. We have a late arrival (9pm) so we will not check in until probably 10 or so. What's the activity level at that time? Also, what can we expect for dress in the late evennings. I'm assuming this depends on the temp but we don't want to be over or under-dressed. We are coming from Wisconsin where temps have been in the single digits lately......Can't wait!

They offer a first timers discount, make sure you check into that. Beings you arrive on a Monday and late, things might be fairly quiet. Just my guess though. When I was there, I went nude in the restaurants but it was summer and conducive to such attire. (just remember your towel!)

Enjoy your visit at this great property!

Depends on the night whether anyone is at the bar.

For dinner, it was a mix of clothed couples, nude couples, mixed couples, clothed couples who converted to nude after sitting (easy to do attire). I think Thursday is Nude night - free glass of wine to the disrobed. That seemed to alter the balance scale towards nude. No biggie either way but while we love it is can be less comfortable to be the only ones inthe buff. I think thats while there are some converters once they sit down.

Good advice on the dress variation. For sure the warmer the lesser! It'll be fairly quiet at night for most of your stay since it's during the week. You'll just miss the Monday night dance which usually winds down around 10 (reflecting the average age here I guess). You'll probably spend some time Tuesday and Wednesday nights at Cheeks, typically more nudity there compared to Lakeside. Tuesday is Taco night, 3 Tacos for less than 5 bucks so that draws a crowd. Not much going on Wed. night so plan to meet folks in the hot tub!

Surprised an established naturist resort would have to have a "nude night" and offers of free wine for those who disrobe. Seems to me that everyone would be nude at this resort 24/7. If not why go. Anyway sounds like a place wife and I need to put on our bucket list.

Agreed but one main reason is that it gets chilly at night in the winter! It's to each his own, nude is fine if you're warm-blooded.

We last went there a few years ago and the bar chat was that management was trying to encourage more nudity at dinner and to send a subtle message that it was not only allowed but welcomed.

It seems that at the time a lot of members were dressing for dinner and while that was OK, the resort also wanted to encourage those who wished to dine nude so that everyone was comfortable in their choice...

I've only been there in winter ---- so that has a big influence when it is in the 50's on some nasty night.

The pool and all other activities seems to be in the buff all day.

Thanks for the headsup on the first time visitors, stay 2 nights , get the third free. I E-Mailed the resort and they have adjusted my reservation to reflect the discount.

Caliente may have been out-voted by Cypress Cove but they still hold the Super Bowl record for attracting the media. Here is a link to last night's O'Reilly Factor: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sh4rxcdau4w

For those not familiar, Jesse Watters is what's known in the business as an "ambush journalist." A favorite tactic of his is to stick a microphone into the face of a trailer park resident with two front incisors missing and ask them to expound and differentiate on the economic theories of John Maynard Keynes and Arthur Laffer.
