“still love Hedo but it needs work”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 November 2008

We have been 6 times now, the staff has changed and were not very accomidating on this trip, NO room phone the whole 6 days, wrong size sheets on the bed, toilet took 2 days to fix. The food also went downhill. We would still visit for the friends, but the service needs alot of improvement

I'm 40yrs old and travelled to other all inclusives, from 3 star to 5star. This year is my wifes 40th birthday and our 22nd anniversary.... so I surprised her with HEDO.

We arrived at 3pm, it was hot, straight to the beach.
There is an area between the prude and nude side that is treed, we found chairs just past this zone.

Everyday afterwards was spent on the nude beach and if you do get excited, just cover it up, nobody really cares anyways.

The people there are great, 18yrs to 75yrs, 100lbs to 500 lbs..... nobody cares how you look or where ur from.... one big Hedo family. You are not pushed into anything you don't want but whatever you want you can probably get.

We concluded; we are not swingers or exhibitionist , we like being nude, still alittle uncomfortable walking and talking with strangers nude....... Maybe next year.

They have all the water activities and for the first time ever, didn't do one of them. Laying on the matt nude with my wife, doing the rock climbing and talking with friends was my daily activity. Malibu pineapple the drink of choice.

If ur going for the Food, rooms or services this place is not for you, go too the boring grand lido right next door.

You are going for the Hedo experience.

We stayed in a nearby hotel close to Hedo II and decided to visit on a night pass that we purchased for 75 American dollars each. We had so looked forward to it as we knew of the reputation it had and how the resort itself had advertised itself.
We cannot express our disappointment enough.
We arrived to find grumpy staff who couldn't give us any help on where anything was and advised us to "look around". We then found a table in the rather dated looking restaurant/canteen and found that at 8.30 most of the food had already gone. The bar staff were not pleasant at all and could even be described as rude.
We sat through a 'show' hosted by 2 men who had no idea what they were doing........many people were cringing with embarrassment and unless you're a bi sexual woman the entertainment was purely for the men.
We then decided to take a walk around the resort to find where all the 'action' was only to find everywhere shut down and in darkness. None of the jacuzzi's were working and the pool lights were off. People were wandering around aimlessly and most had retired by 11pm.
There were no facilities shown to us for people who had bought day or night passes so using the pools or jacuzzi's would have been weird anyway with nowhere to leave your belongings.

Anyway we were so disappointed that it was arranged by our own hotel rep for us to be able to go back a few nights later to be fair about the resort on the possibility that we had just picked a bad night.........we are not difficult to please....honest!! lol.
Our rep had told the resort we were returning and she had gone out of her way to let them know of our first disappointing visit. We arrived again only to find that the manager who we were told would be there. to greet us....wasn't! Perhaps we just visited on 2 bad nights but we expected so much more from what is considered by many to be an amazing swingers resort and is known on a global scale.
We will not be returning and recommend that anyone planning to visit for the first time, to go with no pre-conceptions as you may be as disappointed as we were.
Come on Hedo!!.........you could do soooooo much better.

The worse thing about Hedo is the staff sorry to say it but its true, after that its the godawful rooms that reek of bad taste. We checked in after calling the 800 number when we made a change and decided to do all inclusive after a wonderful 4 days at another property. The price was right but we should have know better, from the greeting we got from the front desk clerks. We had a confirmation number and they looked suspiciously at us saying no reservations for you. Not a wait, we will sort this out, nothing.
Once it was sorted out, we were taken to our Ocean View room thru the main dining room, where we encountered cleaning crews and staff everywhere amongst the people eating, it was just about lunch time. Mopping and sweeping was happening. Ok, our room was the last room at the end of the building, ok they were full maybe? We just booked it last night but the horror was the room itself, no decor, no style, a old tv overhead and a weird warped mirror over the bed, grey and white plastic feeling and a dirty window with floral drapes that matched the floral bedspread that gave me the willies, thank goodness it was too hot to have it on the bed, it was stiff with age as was the piling mystery colored blanket, we took both off. The sheets were fine.

The bathroom was awful one had to close the door to be able to pee practically and the shower, no tub (no problem) had directions that we had to figure out as they had long faded away. OK well we thought, who stays in their room anywho, we are here for the beach and good food and activities.

The beach was not well maintained at all, AT ALL, we know well maintained as we had just come from an amazingly wonderful beach walking distance to Hedo. Surprised? yup and really disappointed. Well they have pools and hammocks, but the pool closest to the ocean had dirt, sand and leaves in it most of the time we were there and was cold so it went unused mostly and the bar there was staffed by 1 young lady who was pissy when I asked for a diet pepsi, she said, "we don't have it here."

I thought wait, yes you do I saw it in the dinning room bar, but she meant she didn't have it at her bar. Ok well she was out right then I thought and with no offer to get any right then I asked for juice. She never ever got diet pepsi all 3 days ..I asked daily, no she did not have. The grill had it, but she did not, upstairs had it but she did not. This young woman should not be in the service industry.

We sat down on the big outdoor beds (filthy, thank goodness we had towels) and noticed right in front of us a big old tree with 4 hammocks around it with a shed built over it, a prime reading spot...shaded and lovely, but we couldn't use it as 4-5 staff were relaxing in all the hammocks for a few hours. Perhaps, this was their break area?

The outdoor grille was the one bright spot and the service there was sweet and friendly. Sadly she was there alone most of the time without help.
I could not determine the nude and/or prude side as there was nudity and [--] in the main pool below the dining room as well as in several open areas. Not the biggest issue for us, but I can imagine that someone might be bothered.
On our last day, we slept in and put our do not disturb out and when we heard the cleaning crew on the stretch, I went out and asked for towels, no cleaning necessary until later but we needed towels. The cleaning ladies said ok and we went out for a dip and a late breakfast. Gone 2 hours or so, came back no towels and they were still in our area, they said to me, we cannot go in your room, I almost laughed but I just said can I have towels now please and we are out for the day, you can clean now and I made sure to turn our sign around. YUP, you guessed it, we came back after 6 to get ready for dinner and our room was not cleaned. We called front desk, since no answer at housekeeping. They said we will make a report and get your room cleaned. Great off to dinner at the Japanese restuarant, nice cook, so -so food. Came back to the room at 10pm, room still uncleaned. We called the front desk again...long story short.
Never ever again.
So very disappointed I fell for the SUPERCLUB pr, glad it was the 2nd place we stayed as if it had been the first, we would have for sure left Jamaica unhappy.

This was our first trip to Jamaica and the first time to a SuperClubs all "inclusive" Resort. It was very dissapointing to be solicited for gratuities from the begining to the end. We paid to change our flight and leave two days early because of the following:

* Restaurants were closed that were listed as being open...

* No water available...Had to use the waste basket and get pool water to flush the toilet...

* More then one day there was no hot water available...

* No one would answer the telephone for information or help requests, no answer at all to the "nurse on call" line...

* No one followed up to us on any of our complaints...

* Rain water poured in on the main dining area, over the bar down the light support poles and onto the tables and chairs. This is when we decieded to check out early and leave as we felt it "unsafe" to stay...

* No one seamed to care that we were leaving early, and the attitude of the front desk staff was this was "business as usual"...

We paid hundreds of dollars extra to change our return flight to get back home.

9/26 - 10/3 - 7 nights
We are HEDO II veterans so we knew that we were booking during the low season, just as we did last year, however this year our experience was totally lacking. We don't rely on the resort to make our vacation fun, we do that ourselves, but we DO expect the resort to supply a consistent product, namely their excellent service, adequate creature comforts, including good food and drink. This time, HEDONISIM II failed miserably in our opinion.

The very low attendance seemed to be only a HEDO 2 problem, as we met many people as we arrived in the airport who were going to HEDO 3 and we met some guest from Sandals who were on a day pass to HEDO 2 and they said Sandals occupancy was reported to be around 75%, where as HEDO 2 was as low as 15 - 20% although they claimed 40%. The entire prude side was closed, including the grills and bars, and everyone was place in rooms on the nude side.

NEGATIVES

The buffet was switched to ala cart service from a VERY limited menu. Food quality and quantity was poor.

The nude pool had missing tiles in the pool and on the steps - very dangerous.

There was no HOT water several mornings during our 7 night stay. Over the course of our last 2 days there was actually NO WATER at all...unable to flush...EWW This was UNACCEPTABLE.

Lack of music and limited lighting throughout the property, as if they were trying to cut back on power.

The midnight buffet offered only burgers with limited condiments and fixings. After midnight you would do better to go into ocean and catch a fish yourself, the air sandwiches they serve you on a cold deli plate will probably just p*ss you off rather than satisfy any hunger.

The activities were very limited and not even attended by the Hedo entertainment staff! The entertainment staff was more concerned about going to the JUNGLE instead of promoting the disco or the dinner show activities.

Hedo II seems to only value the large groups, like LifeStylers and International Life Stylers and Fluffenutters. HEDO 2 should consider viewing the low season as a time to cater to those who do come and maybe build up a group who like the extra special attention...but they missed the mark! They didn't even clean the beaches like they used to!!!!!

Later during our stay, they re-started the buffet but that was because a group of about 80 life stylers arrived.

HEDO 2 should show respect for every dollar spent there, not just large groups!!

POSITIVES

Check-in was fast and easy!
Most of the staff knows you and they welcome you back!
Delroy, Scumba, Winston, Snoop and Munja are still there!
Charlie was cooking omelets! (later in the week)
The 9 Miss Nude pagent girls were lots of fun!
We were in JAMAICA - it's always awesome!
Ricks Cafe was great!
Sangster airport is getting nicer and nicer every year!
Immigration and customs were NO problem Mon!

Always tip good service!! It's just the right thing to do!

  • Liked — Great service from staff like maid, bartenders, and cooks!

I was at H2 with the same group that I travel with each Sept. We normally go to H3 but thought we would give H2 a try. It was such a disappointment to all of us. The rooms were not as nice...no whirlpool tub like H3, most of the staff were unattentive, very little activities at the nude pool, the restaurants were not as good as H3 (great chef there!) and the layout was undesireable...many hills to walk up and down....and at night the paths to anywhere on the property were dim and creepy. The only highlight was the great massage I had at the spa with a very nice gentlemen...and also my maid....but that does not make a good resort....will not go back to H2 and don't recommend it...go to H3 instead!
