Dickman Resort is a fun inviting resort for all types. In each of my stays there have been a healthy mix of straight couple, gay couples, and gay solo travelers. The hotel does not discriminate and everyone seems to enjoy themselves. The staff tailors each experience to the unique needs and desires of each guest. The pool attendant pampers guests...

From the moment we got through the high- walled, unmarked hotel gates, we felt relaxed and pampered. The gardens, pool area and decor just felt perfect. The rooms don't have numbers and we were never asked which of the 11 rooms we were in or had to sign for anything. The staff were well briefed and knew we were in...

Dickman was the last stop on the trip and we've been reluctant to leave the hotel. It's relaxing, the pool is great and the staff are genuinely attentive. Other guests were friendly, probably due to the small size of the hotel and the casual atmosphere. Only complaint would be that the cocktails were a bit average, nothing that a little...
