If you are looking to be real, real relax, this is the place. NOT FOR EVERYONE! You should come with an open mind to leave everything at home, not cellular phone, no computer...Enjoy the gorgeous beach, the amenities, the food, the Real life...It is cloth optional, but is not obligated to be ''naturale''. If you are not ready, take your time, but enjoy...

Room Tip: Garden Suites are gorgeous...

This was our 7th time to Club Orient and the first time we stayed in a Studio. We will never stay in a Studio again. They are dark inside and nil soundproofing from the other half. Each morning we woke up with bug bites on our shoulders, in spite of using bug repellant. We had previously stayed in only Mini-suites before (at the same daily rate) and they are much better. The Studios are small crowded and dark inside.
On the positive: the beach is great and there is a new system for putting up the umbrellas and chairs. Our last visit was 2 years previous. The chairs are lined up and umbrellas placed by 0800 and this is great.
We asked to be upgraded to a mini-suite on the weekend of our 9 day stay but were not. Reservations told us they could not do it, in spite of one of the units being empty.
We did have to ask for soap, when our shower soap ran out
There is no better beach around for nudists and we pay a premium for it.
At the Restaurant everyone seemed to be dressing for dinner--WHY? This is a nudist resort and we pay a premium for the opportunity to eat drink and be merry without clothes. We do not understand why the ladies wear full length sheaths and high heels to dinner.
Entertainment was excellent as was the magician on Managers Night.
We will return but not stay in a Studio ever again

Room Tip: Stay with a Mini-suite

Just returned from Club Orient for a five day break. Incredible and amazing! What a way to de-stress and unwind in Club O's atmosphere. From first checking in, to exchanging towels each day to getting coffee and croissants, I wasn't ever greeted without a smile and friendly service from their staff. I was very hesitant traveling to Club O solo, but dove right in. The guests that stay there really make anyone feel welcomed. No where, have I ever been, where people were that friendly and welcoming than there. I chose to stay in a studio since it was just me and it worked out perfectly. The studio was within 50 feet of the beach and the restaurant, which wasn't a negative aspect at all. Bug spray should definitely be bought or brought with you, for the early morning and evening hours. Nothing bad to say at all about anything from this resort.

Would I go again? Absolutely!! Looking to go later this year. If you have questions, send me a message, be happy to answer any questions you have, or if your on the fence, I'll push you over to go!!

This was our second visit to a naturist resort and we found this one to be a great experience. The grounds are very nice and they occupy a large section of pretty beach on Orient Bay. The facilities are older but decently maintained and clean. It is a very lowkey place with all types of travellers, we felt very comfortable the whole time. A great way to enjoy a new experience!!

We’ve been to Club O several times now. The beach is amazing, with soft white sand and clear azure waters. It’s wonderful hanging out under the yellow umbrellas or swimming in the bay, feeling the tropical climate. We love the option and freedom of not wearing a stitch of clothing for our whole vacation. The Club’s mottos are apt… "Nothing is better", and "Happiness is no tan lines".

The staff are very friendly, helpful, and accommodating. The Boutique has touristy and artsy items for sale, fresh French pastries in the mornings, and all the essential groceries. The Perch Bar and Papagayo has good food and great drinks. Papagayo offers dances, DJs or live bands most nights, and special events seasonally. Security staff patrol the grounds day and night, and we’ve always felt safe. The grounds keepers do a decent job keeping up the gardens and lawns. Steve, the manager is pleasant, informed, and caring. The Tiko Tiko cruises are fun. The masseuses are professional, and give a relaxing massage either in a secluded area on the beach, or in private air conditioned rooms. There’s a nice gym on site, and a book exchange. Dolphin Watersports offers to rent everything for those who want to be active. Yes, wi fi is iffy, as we have found is common in the Caribbean archipelago, and is only consistently fast in the wee hours of the night.

The down side to Club O is the accommodations. The units are mostly privately owned, and any upgrades are at the discretion of the owner. Sometimes we’ve gotten lucky and have received a unit in which the owner cares about their investment and have modernized their unit. Sometimes we’ve gotten a unit which the owner has done nothing to the unit (despite the management’s encouragement) and so has 30 year old fittings in the kitchen and bathroom, scuffed up walls, broken or cracked tile, ancient shower curtains, torn window screens, etc. You pay the same price for both, and you have no say which unit you receive. You can request a certain accommodation, but there is absolutely no guarantee you’ll get that unit.

The flip side to the accommodations is that each unit is equipped with the same basics of furniture, linens/ towels, kitchen cookware and eating utensils, good water, and everything is essentially in working order. The housekeepers try to make the most of what’s in each unit, keeping the rooms clean and picking tropical flowers from the gardens to make table arrangements. And we realize that Steve has made efforts to encourage owners to improve and upgrade their units as needed.

Will we come here again? Absolutely. We have traveled fairly extensively and have not found any other place in the world quite like Club Orient. But it saddens me that we may be assigned accommodations which are drab and uncomfortable. That when we choose to spend our holiday at Club Orient, it is with the knowledge that bad accommodations are something that we may have to endure. I do wish, and hope, that those owners who have allowed their accommodations to be this way will read this TA posting and reconsider their investment. But I heartily thank those owners who make our stay comfortable and enjoyable.
