I would say around 70% go without clothing in and around the pool area. This is a quiet resort, never seen any actual play. Been here a few times and booked again for Sep 17.

All of the gay resorts in warm sands are clothing optional. There are one or two gay resorts (not in warm sands) in Palm Springs that are NOT, however.
