I am a frequent user of Trip Advisor, but have a new account for this review for privacy.

We just got back from one of several trips to Sea Mountain and had a great trip as always. Dewey does an excellent job running this place and has an amazing team who keep it together. The place is super clean and the staff there are constantly running around to make sure everything is operating like clock work, alternating between stocking the kitchen with ice to pouring margaritas. The landscaping is very zen and we love the vibe of the place.

We met a few people who we there for the first time and they all were happy with the experience. It is a sexy place that can be what you want it to be. No pressure. We like the rooms and cannot imagine going to SM and not staying there. I love getting up in the morning and enjoying the cooler temperatures and quiet before the party gets going mid-day. It is also nice to have a room to run in to if you want a snack or cold drink. We have been to other clothing optional resorts.

When we go to SM, we stop for some supplies to keep in the frig in our room. You have the option to eat what they put out, or bring your own items in.

We love this place for a weekend away from responsibility and enjoy the sexy vibe. We highly recommend a visit.

Room Tip: We enjoy being on the side of the pool so we can go in and out to our room during the day

My girlfriend and I went for the first time this last weekend. We were greeted by the owner who was very comforting and made my lady feel safe seeing as it was our first time. We checked in, went out to the pool and everyone was very welcoming, the staff was great and we had the best time ever. We wanted to seek out a place where we could be adventurous and feel respected and we found that at SMI. We will surely be back.

Room Tip: Get the room with the balcony.

Someday, they'll make a movie about this place and, like Woodstock or Studio 54, it will be the hip thing to say that you were part of the magic. While those other cultural icons belong to days gone by, you still have the opportunity to get to Sea Mountain Inn. If you’re on the fence about going, just do it. You will not regret it.

SMI is a work of love made visible that shines through in every detail of the grounds and in every moment of your stay. The first time you walk through the front gate and into the pool area as you check in, you get the same feeling of awe and mystery that you got as a kid entering the gates of Disneyland and going under the bridge into the reveal of Mainstreet USA framing Cinderella’s Castle. Stuff like this isn’t supposed to be real, but there it is, right in front of you. Fantasyland lives! You will keep that feeling and a happy glow for days after you leave.

Dewey, your host, is a showman and artiste extraordinaire. He and the SMI team make the ton of work that goes into running this place look easy. These people love what they do, and it shows. They create the perfect environment where guests are completely relaxed and make fast friends with one another. Within minutes of arrival, you will feel like you’ve finally come home after decades of wandering, and wonder what the heck took you so long to get there. The rooms are clean (and soundproofed), the pool is warm, the lounges are comfy, the music is uniquely fantastic, and folks are happy. You’d really have to try to have a bad time at SMI.

If you’re veteran lifestylers, a weekend stay will be busier, and any of the events/parties are a blast. If you’re newbies or just curious, come midweek when you can enjoy your partner in relative quiet and dip a toe. Either way, you can interact with others or just be by yourself in a completely safe and non-threatening environment. A naked society is a polite, unpretentious society. It’s all good.

Though there are restaurants and shops nearby, one hint for those staying is to bring an ice chest with your own food if you’ll be wanting more than snacks throughout the day. Leaving the grounds breaks SMI’s spell, and by having your own supply you can just stay where you are and soak up the magic.

Thank you, Dewey and the whole team at SMI. See you again soon!

Hi All, my wife and I went to SMR 04/19/14, Great place, Dewey was amazing! The staff was great from the first phone call to our first visit. We have been to many CO places, Loved the people at SMR, everyone was so awesome, Food was great! We had prior business commitment or would have stayed for night party, everyone we met was so respectful and fun to be around. We had a BLAST! Thank you to everyone at Sea Mountain for making us feel so welcome. Go and have a great time! We would go back anytime!

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
