My wife and I traveled to Hedo II for the first time last August. We had been to Hedo III 5 times and were very sad to see it shut down. If you are looking to make a comparision between the two Hedo's, one cannot be made. Hedo II is in need of serious renovation. The room was very dated and had mold growing in the ac unit, half of the people we were there with went home sick with a URI. The bathroom was so small that only one person at a time could be in there. The food was decent, but it was the same thing everyday. Most of the staff were either flat out rude or just plain lazy with the exception of a few. My wife said she felt very unsafe to walk anywhere on the resort by herself and for good reason. The locals would ride up to the beach on jet ski's and snap pictures of you, or get off and walk the grounds, peddling their "products". There were way to many single guys(dirtbags) there staring at everybody, and trying to get involved with the couples even after being repeatedly told "NO". The nude pool was just plain gross, there was a constant greasy film floating on top of the water, and it was constantly cloudy. The only time I saw the pool get cleaned was when someone had an accident in it. At night in the nude pool we were told to be quiet because the resort next door had complained about the noise. There were also some good points to Hedo II, but very few. The grounds were maintained very nicely, and the night club and piano bar were both larger than the one's at Hedo III. My wife was ready to go home on day 2 of our trip, never has that happened when we visited Hedo III. We have made our first and last trip to this resort.

We travelled with the Tom's Trips "Ms No Swimsuit" group, as we always do. Bunch of fun folks that can turn any day into fantastic fun that leave us in pain from laughing. The Happy Hour at the nude pool should come with a warning label, You could die laughing! Thanks Mark and Suzy!

Our stay at Hedo 2 was, for the most part, awesome. We did not have any hot water issues, no AC issues in our room and we didn't hear of anyone else complaining of those while we were there. Only physical issue with our room is the phone did not work even to call the front desk. However, the front desk did let me use their phone to call home for a quick minute at no charge. Grounds were gorgeous and clean at all times. Our housekeeper did a phenomenal job and is just a beautiful person. We chatted and shared some Hershey Kisses as she cleaned our room.

Nude grill jerk chicken was delicious and plentiful. Only ran out late in the afternoon (5:30pm) one time that I know of. Meat patties were all but impossible to find though. Too lazy to make the trek to the prude grill to see if they had any. The nude grill is now serving grilled fish. It is delicious, although spicy due to its marinade.

Bar service in all areas was wonderful, I was even waited on while laying on the beach near the massage shack! Not always or regularly, but several times over ten days.

The food was much improved this trip over the past several. Much more variety and much improved flavor. The guy doing the eggs now does an ok job, however only once did he truly scramble my scrambled eggs and ham rather than give me a ham omelet. After three days, I gave up and just went to the guy doing eggs on the back side of the buffet. Much better job and MUCH more personable! The other guy was not rude or unpleasant, just all business. I am used to friendly banter or at least a smile and a Good Morning.

The watersports staff was truly over the top wonderful. Divemasters who are professional and so patient and it is very reassuring to see how safety conscious they are. There was a lovely young lady on the dive boat who spoke Italian, French, Spanish and only broken English. But NO ONE was going into the water until we ALL were completely briefed on the dive and completely and thoroughly understanding of all signals and procedures. I could tell by her excitement telling her companion as he met her coming off the boat that she had a super time. Grantley was very helpful to us after our last dive. We brought our own BCD's and reg's that we had just bought and we had a good idea how to clean them for travel after the last dive, but he really took some time with us helping us make sure our equipment was completely cleaned and more importantly, to make sure we now know how to do it ourselves!

Last, but certainly not least, The dining room service. Staff has been cut to the bare bones in that area and it shows. Good luck getting a water glass filled or refilled...if you are lucky enough to have one even set at your table. Numerous times there were not enough table settings to be found. If something ran out on the salad or bread stations, you're pretty much SOL unless you are like me and after asking four times in twenty minutes for a butter packet, you just go into the kitchen on a quest for them yourself. If you need silverware, just go ransack a cabinet. Several people had to do this during the Friday lunch period, even though management KNEW our group would be having almost ev eryone in our group in the dining area between 1-3 pm for voting and it is not that far of a stretch to think we would naturally sit down and have lunch since we took the time to put something over our parts. Yet only about a third of the tables were even set, very few servers staffing the room and they were so ovewhelmed they gave up. One young man just walked around with an empty tray, walking past tables with a pile of dirty dishes on them (one was ours) and never picking up any. Just looking busy walking around with his tray. That was the day a bunch of us had to go ransack a cabinet to find something to eat our lunches with.

I did note this on my comment card in the area where they ask what three things could they do to improve our vacation...1. Add more dining staff. 2. Add more dining staff. 3. Add more dining staff.

All in all a great vacation. It seems though, that as some things improve, others nosedive. Why can't there be a balance????

Having traveled to the Caribbean before we were expecting the typical issues that you see. The construction that is in dire need of repair and food that guarantees time spent in the room. At Hedonism II this is not the case at all. Sure the buildings themselves are showing a few signs of age and are succumbing to the tropical environment, but all in all they are in pretty good shape. And the food was just fine. While it may not have been true 5 star cuisine, we never got sick. And we observed that the staff maintained exemplary food handling practices. They wash the pans at the omelet bar between every omelet! I was highly impressed. The service there was great and every single employee we dealt with was friendly and attentive to the very few requests that we had. Even the IT support employee [Ishmael] was very helpful and patient as we took over 2 hours to get me wireless connectivity. As for the vacation as a whole, it definitely was the best vacation ever and the wife and I plan to be back as often as possible. While it was a little costly it was definitely worth it. We have never considered ourselves to be “resort” people as we like to go exploring the local areas, but on this vacation we were totally content staying on resort.

If you go make sure you fly Tim Air from Montego Bay to Negril at least once for the experience!

My husband and I have travelled to Hedo III many times prior to its closing, but this was our first trip to Hedo II. We were a little apprehensive as we did not know what to expect. We were NOT disappointed! We have stayed at many resorts but the atmosphere at Hedo ii is unlike anywhere else. The rooms are dated and in need of remodeling, however, you go to Hedo for the one of a kind experience, not for luxury accomodations.

The EC's were amazing and they work hard and go out of their way to make sure everyone has a good time. But it's your choice, you can be as involoved or uninvolved as you like. Me and my husband spent equal time at the nude side and prude side. The nude pool is always very active so the prude side was a breath of fresh air for those times when you want to get away from it all and get some quiet time. The theme nights are so much fun but we did not dress up every night...but pajama party night was a must:-). Toga nights were a blast but I've heard that they may have done away with them. The piano bar is always entertaining and had a relaxing atmosphere but needs better ventilation as the heat became a bit uncomfortable at times. The disco was a good time. Everyone seems to cut out before 2am to go over to the nude hot tub but the disco still remiains open until you cant party anymore (was normally closed by 4 am). Oh and you have to try the waterslide at least once while you are there, you'll feel like a kid again.

The food was good enough. Good variety, so unless your just a super picky eater, you will definitely find something to satisfy your taste buds. Friday nights featured all you can eat lobster tails on the buffet...delish!! Martino's, the Italian Restaurant was my personal favorite. The steak was VERY good and I'm a bit particular about my steaks.

Definitely take advantage of the watersports that the hotel offers as the water is so beautiful and the watersports staff was so helpful. The snokeling was amazing and we saw an array of sea life. Be careful of the jellyfish though. I got stung once while I was there. A minor irritation but did not keep me out of the water.

As always, we met some amazing couples. Everyone is always friendly and there to have a good time. You can be as free as you want and not worry about anyone judging you based on your appearance (or actions). My husband and I are not lifestylers and we felt no pressure from any of the other guests. Go with an open mind and you will certainly have an amazing time.

Overall... A GREAT TIME!!!! Cant wait to return this year!

Hedonism II is a rare gem because I do not believe there is another resort in the world anything like it. Leave your inhibitions at home and come here to enjoy yourself. I call this a frat party on steroids for adults and your visit is what you make it.

The rooms are clean although not fancy but quite adequate for a week in the Caribbean. The staff is friendly and engaging. This is our second visit and this year saw many improvements over last year, especially in the food and service.

If you are looking to be pampered this is probably not the resort for you but if you seek to get away, meet fun interesting people and let your hair down then Hedo II is for you. The resort is divided into the "nude side" and the "prude" side although the week we were there was as takeover and there did not seem to be a distinction.

Our time was highlighted with relaxing days lounging by the nude pool and enjoying evening activities including performances by the hospitality team during dinner and theme nights where many dress in interesting and sexy costumes reflecting the theme which included Rockstar night and Pirate Night.

We thoroughly enjoy visiting Hedo II and would recommend it to anyone who is open minded and looking to get away.

Room Tip: We stay in a garden room on the "prude side" which is the least expensive room at the reso...

My husband and I just got back from a fantastic week at Hedo . We have only wonderful things to say about the resort. We loved the food, entertainment, shows, and the hospitality was the best. We were on the beach by 10:00 in the morning and our day did not end until early the the next morning. Our room was clean and comfortable. We loved the food and drink. We could open our curtains and the nude pool and hot tub was there. The people were very friendly and we made friends with a number of couples. We loved the freedom of being naked on the beach and engageing in all the erotic fun. We had such a great time that we are going again in September.

Overall, we had a fantastic time at Hedo II. If you're not having a good time, chances are you've got an issue. Hedo allows you to be yourself in a safe, friendly environment. There are however two draw backs... there isn't any free access to internet and it could cost you over $100 extra to use the service for a week. Also, it's suppose to be all inclusive for your drinks... they are now starting to charge for certain wine selections.

Room Tip: Rooms on the prude side/non - clothing optional side are quieter.
