“This place is amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014

We love going to SMI. The place is totally clean, management is amazing, people are super nice. We love going when we can and meeting new fun couples. We don't understand why people hate on this place. Maybe they just can't have fun like the rest of us ;) anyways we love this place and recommended to anyone

We have been to Sea Mountain Inn 6 or 7 times over the past two years and every time we have to leave, we are very sad! The staff is amazing, the water in the mineral pool and hot-tub feels great and the atmosphere is one of love, sensuality and good times. There are happy people all around and new friends to be made. SMI is not a bargain basement hotel but worth every penny. Walk through the door, take off your clothes, and leave the world behind!

Room Tip: More party action at night near (and in) the hot tub and quieter on the pool side.

For ages we've wanted to see what Sea Mountain was all about. In the past we've gone to Hedo and Cap D'Agde so have a great deal of experience and expectations.

The good: Dewey and his stall will do the utmost to make you happy and comfortable. The water heater to the hot tub failed and the night was chilly but it only took a couple of hours before a new water heater was in place and the tub was warm again.

The staff is very friendly and does their best with free (watered down) Margaritas. The rooms were basic, clean and fairly well maintained.

Kudos to Dewey for the music. Lots of good music that wasn't limited to current hip hop.

The not so good: Its a small resort and walking around in the limited space with every inch of space covered by chaises is an obstacle course.

People: Small number of people compared to the big resorts. If you find some people, overly rude or insulting there's not much you can do when you're bumping in to each other (One woman kept giving my wife the evil eye for days and went so far as to come up to our bed, turn around and talk to another hoping to prevent my wife from curling her toes - they curled many times regardless)

No real food - fried chicken is a constant and every other food was carb filled junk.

The location is not ideal. When you park your car make sure valuables are taken with you.

Its a fun spot but you may prefer Desire as a better alternative.

Room Tip: If you want to sleep avoid the rooms near the hot tub. White noise from AC in room whites out the...

Merci for taking the time to write about the wonders of the world of Fried Chicken, and nirvana at the only semi all inclusive and lifestyles resort in the USA. We are very aware of the problem with our new Hot mineral waters lux Pool.SMI has the Can Dew Attitude- so when it broke down and was only 4 months old we dispatched our crack team to arrange an evening $7500 cash purchase of a heater to get our friends the warmth they deserve. We thank them for their patience - and would have loved to have them let our goddess staff know about the guests with the evil eyes we would have shielded you from their arrogant ways. You trip is supposed to be about honor and respect and the stink eye does not belong in the land of love. Sea Mountain is vigilant about all guests being cool with each other.SMI wants to also let our diners know we are aware and making sure we get some gluten free and vegan snacks for your lustful trips and apologize as we are extremely limited by the health department of what foods we can can or can not have and we shall work harder for you. Also yes lock vehicles but know that in the past 5 years we have not had a single report of any theft at the world of safe Sea Mountain Spa. Sea Mountain awaits to return of these wonderful posters who have shared their sincere opinions of SMI and in return we are gearing up some special tunes that we hope you hear all the way back in FRANCE. Merci beaucoup we love you ! Come back to your Naked world viva la France

We visited SMI last weekend as the final part of our Californian trip. It's a great place to relax with like minded people and have some fun. Dewey and the staff do a great job and the other guests make sure this is a great place to unwind. We'll certainly include SMI when we next visit USA.

I had the pleasure of finally staying at SMI. It was the most relaxing wonderful experience. Can not say enough great things about the staff and the grounds. The rooms are sweet and the pool and hot tub are clean and inviting. The staff is incredibly friendly and accommodating. Loved it and can't wait to go back!

We've been coming to Sea Mountain since it first started in Malibu (and actually lived down the street). We love the great facility they now have in Desert Hot Springs..

There are reasons why people come from all over the world to be here. Dewey, the staff and the other guests are great to be around. It's like summer camp for adults. You can have as much or as little sexy adventure as you want in a safe, clean attractive friendly environment. What a great place to live out your fantasies.

People don't come here for haute cuisine. The food is good and there are always healthy choices, but if you are looking for special food there are lots of great restaurants to enjoy in Palm Springs - just 10 minutes away.

The real reason to be here is for the great experience. Every time we are here we meet great couples and have a very fun time. We never feel any pressure. It's a great place for people to come and let their hair down. After a weekend here you feel like you have really had a vacation (minus the high travel cost, inconvenience, rude staff, etc.).

As far as comparing it to other resorts in Mexico or the Caribbean, we've been there as well - Hedo, Desire, etc. Each resort has its own charm and is slightly different but we've never been to one we liked more. We are so lucky to have such a great facility in our own country. And the prices are very reasonable considering all you get.

In all of my visits here over the years, I've never spoken to a guest who was unhappy. You owe it to yourself to try it.

Room Tip: The rooms are all nice. We prefer rooms on the hot tub side because its a bit quieter but all rooms...

This place is all about just being yourself and having adult fun. Young, old, large or small it does not matter. The staff is the very best and they all actually seem happy to be at work. They take great care to ensure everyone is taken care of and having the best time possible. It is a no pressure environment where you can relax, make new friends and enjoy being naked without judgement. Come to Sea Mountain with someone who enjoys adult fun, lay out in the sun, swim or dance the night away. You will definitely leave with a smile on your face.
