That said, once you are on the nude side – whether beach or pool – you are required to be nude. Our guests are mature, sophisticated and non-judgmental; a “live and let live” philosophy is key to the enjoyment of a liberating vacation. There is never pressure for you, or any guest, to do anything you might find uncomfortable. Cover-ups, however, are required where food is served, in the lobby and certain other public areas. And although guests are expected to be fully dressed in the nightclub, this does not mean that they cannot wear revealing outfits. On the contrary, we are very open to SEXY.

As this is a large travel group, we have lots of single travelers that make lifelong friends on our trips, and of course there are also many travelers looking for roommates. We have found over the years that rather than being assigned a roommate, people like to get to know each other a bit online, so G&S set up a Facebook page just for those looking for roommates. Just click on the link and join the group to get started with the roommate concierge. https://www.facebook.com/groups/796194617195487/
The discounted rates and payment plans offered come with a caveat. The resort wants a guarantee that rooms will be sold, or they will impose a penalty. This is why we provide all the information up front during the booking process to that the terms are clear. That being said, we understand that unexpected things can happen, which is why we strongly suggest that you protect your investment by purchasing travel insurance. This way, if you are cancelling for a covered reason, the penalty will be reimbursed to you by the insurance. Please email us at groups@atlastravelweb.com and we can send a complimentary brochure & quote so that you can review.
Once a payment is more than 5 days past due, a late fee of $25 is imposed. If a reservation is more than 10 days past due and you have not called or emailed to get an approved payment plan by the resort, your reservation will be cancelled. Should your reservation be cancelled due to lack of payment and you want to re-activate down the road, it is possible the resort will not reinstate your reservation, and that prices would be quoted at today’s rate vs. the group rate when you initially booked. It is much better to be proactive & reach out to us so that we can work on your behalf prior to a reservation being cancelled.
There is a strict payment plan in place, however we understand that sometimes unexpected things can happen. For extenuating circumstances that can be proved in writing such as job less, injury, death in the family, etc. we can often get the resort to grand an extension. It’s important you call us before the payment deadline and not after it is past due.
Per the booking terms, the resort has a per person penalty, which is why the funds cannot be transferred to someone else booked on the trip. You can however find someone new to go in your place, pay a minimal name change fee, and they can take over your payments from there. Please note, name changes can only be done when an account is current. Past due or cancelled reservations are not eligible for name changes.
Life happens. It may be something unexpected while on your vacation or even an emergency while you are on your trip. We strongly encourage you to consider the purchase of travel insurance to cover unexpected events such as loss of income, medical emergencies for you or someone in your immediate family before and during the trip, a death in the family, natural disasters, and other unforeseen events. Every year we have passengers that lose their investment, because they “didn’t think it could happen to them” or thought there would be an exception for their circumstances. It can often cost as little as $80 to protect your vacation investment. Prices do vary based on your age and the amount of trip that you are insuring. Please email us for a free quote & brochure on the insurance coverage. Hedonism II strongly advocates the purchase of Travel Insurance in order to minimize any potential financial loss, as Hedonism II is under no legal obligation to offer any form of compensation related to any storm event.
If you have any medical, physical or special needs such as a food allergy or restriction, bringing insulin injections, traveling with a C-Pap machine, or are pregnant please contact us at 866-475-7023 before making your reservation.
