Historical Traveller Reviews of Hedonism II Hotel
8/03:This was the wildest vacation I've ever experienced and desperately need more!! My fiance and I actually got engaged on the first day there. It was smart of him to mark his territory! We were nervous at first because of the rumors we heard and things we read. We got the wrong impression when we arrived our first day. It was the Jamaican's Independence day and the resort was taken over by locals. We immediately thought we would be miserable. We were a SuperSurprise couple. Since the locals were on the prude side, we decided to just let it all out(literally) and venture over to the nude side---WE NEVER LEFT!!! Everyone was so friendly and I've never seen so many naked people. The party lasted every night until 4 or 5 AM. The hot tub at night is the craziest experience I've ever taken a part of. The food was mediocre at best. I wouldn't recommend the Scotch Bonnet-everyone was leaving thier food and going to the buffet. The Beach Grill had the best food overall. On the nude side, you can get lobsters from the locals really cheap. They cook it with butter and garlic. It was great! The piano bar is the best after-dinner spot. I wouldn't recommend the rum punch. All the couples we made friends with got very sick from it--including me. The rooms are plain, but you don't spend any time in them! Overall, I can't wait to return. The experience was incredible and it allowed you to fully relax without worrying that you will ever see these people again!! The staff was friendly and always accomodating. However, you'll wait a long time to get served a drink. We met great friends and still keep in touch with one couple-which is a little wierd! I highly recommend Hedo II. Nothing will ever compare to this vacation EVER! I can guarantee that!

Heaven on Earth

Hedo II, Hedo II... its like HEAVEN ON EARTH. Just got back on Sept. 1, 2003 and want to go again but if you go... go there with an open mind.
It was a trip I will never forget. My hubby and I went and was sad, SO SAD to leave. RAY RAY and ASHLEY (WAGGA-WAGGA!!) should get Hedo II's ENT award of the year! They will make your trip wonderful. The people are great both natives and guess. Our "group" (people we met there) plans on going back every year at the same time. The food is great, the resort is great, it rained 2 days on and off but a lot happened in the rain on the nude side... in the hot tub :). Listen - go and be free, do whatever, wherever, whenever and if you're open with whomever!!!

Wife & I just returned from Hedo 2... we didn't want to leave! We had the most fun that we'd ever had on any vacation. She got to dress in the most revealing outfits without feeling uncomfortable, and I enjoyed viewing them, along with all of the others. You really can do anything you want, anytime you want, at hedo 2.. The guests and staff were super friendly at all times. Food and drinks are always easily available, entertainment never stops. We stayed on the prude side, but ventured to the nude side our second day there. Once the clothes come off, all the fear goes away and you do not feel at all uncomfortable. I was surprised at how friendly the locals were, on and off of the resort.
You do not have to be swingers to have a ball at hedo 2. If you and your spouse do want to take a walk on the wild side, it can easily be found at hedo. We will be returning to hedo2. For first time visitors..
get settled in your room first.. then walk to the nude beach and take off your clothes. Do not hesitate! You will be amazed at how comfortable it feels. Once you get through that experience.. the rest of your vacation will be an absolute ball!! Hedo 2 is more than a place.. it is a state of mind... you will love it!
Too much fun, too little time
Well my husband and I have been back 6 days from Hedo ll, and I must say we had a really great time. All members of the entertainment crew were more fun than any one person could take in, the food was exceptional, especially the Scotch Bonnet and Manuhana and the Pajama Party was one we'll never forget. Wild Bill who works down in Water Activities is a lot of fun, and we didn't me one staff member we could leave negative comments about. Everything was spotless at all times, and the white sand blue water combination, is one you'll carry with you forever. I know you're thinking, well what about all the nude people around. There were plenty, but it was all in tasteful fashion, no pressure to join in, and no uncomfortable feelings if being nude wasn't your thing. Although there was plenty to do at the resort, don't miss the opportunity to see some of Negril, which they have plenty of sightseeing info. at the tour desk. All the tour bus drivers went out of there way to share as much about not only Negril, but Jamaican life in general as possible. All in all, if you go make sure to meet Ray Ray and Ashley because they'll make your day and drink a glass of Hedo Punch, you'll love it.
It was a blast!
My two girlfriends and I just got back from Hedo II. We stayed for 3nts over the weekend. I am a travel agent and I must admit that I have heard all of these crazy stories about the place, you will either love it or hate it. I myself am a pretty timid person and I had a blast. We were on the PRUDE side of the resort. The rooms are pretty basic, the food and drinks were good (especially Muhana) and the beach grill was good too, the staff was excellent, the property itself was very nice, the entertainment crew was great as well. The beach on the prude side is alright, its a little rocky. The pools were nice and the waterslide was fun. The couples out-weigh the singles. There is a lot of sexual oriented activities (games, etc.......) but you don't have to take part in any of it if you dont want to. The nightly themes and entertainment are fun and the disco was great too. We went to Grand Lido Negril for a couple of hours, it was amazing, but for 3 single girls in their early 20's it was a bit boring there. At Hedo II there is always something going on. If you go there with an open mind you will have a great time.
You will see plenty of nude people, but I didnt feel that it was in a sleazy way, it seems as if its the state of being free from everything.
I thought I would be offended by it all and I wasnt. I met some of the friendliest people there. Jamaica s my favorite destination (this was my 3rd time back). The people of Jamaica are the best part, because they are so friendly and accomodating. I would definitely go back to Hedo II, just for the atmosphere in itself. Dont believe all the stories that you hear about Hedo. Go there and see for yourself. Yeah Mon!
fun fun fun!

This place is all about the people/guests--not about the amenities, although that hot tub that can hold 355 naked people is a strong draw!
Don't go looking for five-star quality in anything--but do go to have a flat-out party good time no matter what age or proclivity you have.
Singles and couples are there, and though single men vastly outnumber the single women, many go home with incredible tales if they have good social skills. Read more about how to make the most of a trip there in the 384-page travel/humor book "The Naked Truth About Hedonism II." Folks who think spraying silly string on a friend's genitals is sophomoric shouldn't go.
We stayed at the Superclub Hedonism II for 5 days from 6/18. I went with my sister and her husband who probably are an 8 on a scale of 1-10 in conservatism, and my boyfriend who on the other hand is more like a 4 like myself. I have to say that all of us had the best time. The food was varied and generally very good. The atmosphere was extremely relaxed rather than sleazy. There was a themed party every night and some activities during the lunch period. My sister and I kind of got corraled into judging a Mr. Hedo contest and since neither of us are into lap dancing we gracefully bowed out with no problem. So there is never any pressure to participate in anything that makes you uncomfortable. Our rooms were on the beach and it was actually a kick to see the occasional nude body scooting by. The rooms are not fabulous-we've stayed at Coyaba, Half Moon and The Grand by comparison, but they are servicable with large picture windows that do open for fresh air. The beach has small stones at waters edge, so its not the most comfy situation until you get further out. Water sports are plentiful and easily accessed. Staff is generally very pleasant and attentive.
Being a 30 something simgle guy I ventured to this place for a few days. I had the opportunity to spend a few days the same week at HEDO 3 in which the amenities were nicer. HEDO 2 was much more fun from a singles guys perpective. I went but still shocked by so many couples and age groupsfrom 20's to 50's from all over the world. I met plenty of ladies and even made some friends. The staff was fantastic. They will do everything to make you have a good time. Food and drink were great. The rooms are clean but not the sell of this place. This is not a place for a shy person. I ventured to the naked areas and yes it was strange but the great thing about the place is that you can have a great time even if youdon't go to the naked areas. I met plenty of ladies and a few regulars who have gone there for years. The piano bar is cool too. This is a different vacation. If you are single go with no expectaitons join in the activities and you will have a vacation of your life!!
Top Local Tips for Negril
English is spoken everywhere in Jamaica. No problem communicating with the locals. You can drink the water in Jamaica. Actually the water is very good.
Get off the resort for a while
Negril is wonderful. If you want to have a blast, spend some time down on the west end and walk 7 mile beach!
Cliff Divers at Rick's Cafe
You really must visit Rick's Cafe. A trip to Negril would not be complete without seeing the cliff divers. Be certain to bring some money for the divers. They collect the money before they dive. Well worth it! Expect to have Jamaican currency for your beer or you will receive only Jamiacan change.
