After joining the club for $10 on check in, we opted on room 53 in the Chapparel building. Ashley greeted us and introduced us to the manager, Michael. He patiently showed us several rooms and the property on whole. He even gave us 10% off on the room to seal the deal. We only thought we would visit as "day use" guests which is $50 per couple. The staff and the other guests were all friendly. Ashley wouldn't let us bring a cooler to our chair poolside, but I understand they want to keep the place from looking untidy. As the cafe was closed today however, I figure they could have been more lenient. We ordered food online at http://www.labite.com/.
After getting undressed, we headed to the relaxing quiet pool. We didn't see anyone else there for hours. In fact, there were only about 8 other guests all day.
The property is large though with 3 pools in total. The one in the back is salt water, and the other 2 are chlorine. Everything seemed clean and well run.
They do give you a sheet of rules and suggestions upon check in that helps especially new guests and first time nudists. The one major rule was no gawking. My only complaint was that the only gawker was the service man on the property. He stared every time he passed by.
Overall, it was a beautiful nude day, and the room was comfortable.
