    Default Following the rules....

    My husband and I tried AN for the first time at CTI last year and we loved it, the experience was so positive we came back to CN with the expressed interest in the AN beach.
    Unfortunately our recent experience had some definite negatives and I'm hoping a quick post here will help to reinforce to any potential newcomers how things work at couples.
    Couples is NOT hedonism. It's for people in love and the AN experience is for folks who simply enjoy tanning naked and feeling free. Unfortunately we came across 5 different solo guys during our week. Usually they had ditched their wives and headed for a little hot tub fun, if that's where it ended I probably wouldn't of noticed. Most of them were perfect gentlemen and ensured it was ok that they were alone. But two of them in particular were beyond inappropriate with comments about body parts and hooking up. In the end my husband and I found ways to leave the situations but it truly almost ruined the AN experience for us.
    I wonder if couples could make it crystal clear when people check in that the AN beach is for couples only and any inappropriate "hedo" behaviour is simply not cool.
    These guys seemed the type that wouldn't follow a rule regardless but at least the resort would have gone beyond to ensure they were aware.
    Just a thought, we love couples and will continue to return but I don't want the couples AN option to become something it's not meant to be.

    Sorry to hear about this. If it was during the day, I hope you told security or the bartender so these people could be escorted out of the AN area until such time as they could follow the rules. We have only seen one single male on the AN beach at CN and he was dealt with quickly by security. (he actually was a guest of the RIU)

    In our experience they do. Some idiots walking buy were daring each other to take their clothes off when they got to that part of the beach. One of the guys did, and laid on a lounger. Security was on it in a half a second, and they got booted from the area. Like Kurt said, you should have complained about the singles right off the bat if security missed it. As for telling people, it says right on the sign, couples only.

    You shouldn't have to go get someone to enforce the rules. And if the rules are not enforced, then why have them?

    Nobody had to in my case, but shit happens, you know? If I had to report it, I would but in my case security was on it in a few seconds.

    We had some of the same problems last May (2016) single guys and guys coming from the Riu I know once you are on the Au natural beach as a couple and meet other couples if you get to the beach earlier than your partner or leave for a minute there is no problem as other guest know you. But when single people show up for the first time and Guest from other hotels (RIU)show up and sit in the lounge chairs and get a drink at the bar as happened last May ,That is a problem, That should be taken care of RIGHT OF WAY .. Some guards where on it . Most where not unless you went and spoke to them and they still took there time removing people that where not a guest of Couples. When we left a few couples that where vacationing that week made complaints and we were assured this would be taken care of.. We all love it at CN and are return guest 5-8 times ,AS of now 5 couples are returning in May and WE hope we will not have to keep GETTING SOME ONE TO ENFORCE THE RULES. Last year was the first time we ever had to do this. I am looking forward to a Great Two Weeks at CN as are the other couples, but if we find that CN's Rules for the AU natural beach are not being enforced then we will have to look at another place to vacation. Maybe the New Royalton as it has an adult section.

    So guys are never allowed to be at Sunset Beach without their wives?

    I disagree. My wife had to return to our room two or three times (for several hours at a pop) to attend to Skype calls for business. I stayed at the beach. I did not have a problem with being there by myself, nor did anyone else. Another time my wife came without me as I had to turn in a report and it took me longer than I expected.

    So...a clarification...can guys ever be at Sunset Beach by themselves? I would have been pretty ticked if people felt "uncomfortable" because my wife had to go back to the room. Trust me..I am not there to check out anyone else. I am usually half asleep anyways.


    I also have Scotch-Irish skin. I usually cover up parts of me that normally don't see the sunlight with a towel as the day goes on. I am nude, but take a towel to basically protect myself. Once again, no one ever said anything. I think I would be miffed if I was half asleep and some former middle school hall monitor asked me to "remove my towel."

    also..for any newbies reading this. The whole "au natural" thing is really no big deal. Lose your ego...no one will be checking you out or even caring. Also..don't you ever go to a health club and shower/change for swimming afterwards? Same thing basically.

    Management has told me specifically in the past that the spirit of the rule is to keep singles from using the nude facilities. If the two of you set up and spend your days on the nude beach only the worst of the busybodies will even notice that one of you went for a massage or something. A few people consider themselves to be 'self appointed guardians of the rules' but they are few and the vast majority don't care. If a single tries to hang there the rules will be and should be used to deal with it, but those rules are not there to keep a couple from doing what they need to do during the day. Having said that there are some who spend their day looking for something to complain about and they might think it makes sense for you to put your clothes on and stand outside the hedge until you wife gets back from running to the room to get something she forgot. lol Again.. if you are there as a couple every day it just isn't a problem and that's not what the rule is for anyway.

    We actually had no problem with singles being on the beach for spurts at a time as I truthfully wouldn't of noticed if/when it did happen. The problem I had was chronic disregard for the rules in the late afternoon and evening, where men would ditch their wives after a certain hour and 'crash' the hot tub. It happened more than once and because there was no one there to 'police' the situation it became a pattern.

    That being said, the beach is setup for couples for a reason and the more we debate that back and forth the more it degrades the purposes of having the rules to begin with.

    It's all about Respect.

    you can tell, especially after being at SSB for more than 2 days, who's with whom. A friends wife works out every morning, he arrives by himself. Another's wife plays tennis, he arrives by himself, both women show up around 930am. It's the guys who leer at other's wives, behind their drinks & shades, who I'd throw out. There have been a couple, we've told security and they've taken action....but it's easy to pair people up and actually see who there to oogle the women they can't have.

    The rules state "Further, our au naturel facilities are for couples only. No solo visitors please - regardless..."

    If it's obvious that you arrived as a couple, and suddenly someone goes back to the room because they forgot something, fine. They're back in 10 to 15 minutes. Wouldn't bother us. But to have one spouse leave for several hours at a time? That's not okay. That's not in the spirit of the rule. There are other pools, beach areas, bars that folks can hang out at until the spouse is free to return to the AN area.

    "But to have one spouse leave for several hours at a time? That's not okay."

    Just curious as to what exactly about that bothers you popup40? If a problem arises I think staff will take care of it... if they see it as a problem. Is this something you would make an issue of to have one part of
    a couple who is there every day removed from the nude beach? If so... why?
    Thanks!
