Ms. Santilli does a great job of explaining what Hedo is and what Hedo isn't. She covers a lot of areas that only a many time repeat customer such as her would even know. She thoroughly explains Hedo and gives a lot of information that's useful to anyone travelling to Jamaica. Her stories, pictures, and the stories of other Hedo regulars she shares are priceless to anybody considering a trip there.
...and she's FUNNY!!
I'd recommend this book to anybody considering a trip to Jamaica with an open mind. If nudity offends you, don't buy this book because most of the pictures are nude. Then again, if nudity offends you...I doubt if you've even heard of Hedo II! I don't know if we'll ever take a trip there, but this book was enjoyable and my wife wants to read it now. We're still probably going to take a trip to Jamaica either way. This book allows us to make an informed decision as to whether it might be at Hedo.
That makes it quite valuable. My copy was autographed by the author as well.
I really enjoyed the humor and reading 'The Naked Truth about Hedonism II'. Having attended Hedonism for 17 years, this is exactly how it was. I loved it because it reminding me of so much fun we experienced. Thank you for your delightful truth in sharing this great guide.
The most unfortunate are those who have never read Chris Santilli's guide and have arrived ill-prepared to take advantage of all the fun, never get a good chair reserved on the beach, try to get reservations at the specialty restaurants on nights they're closed, and generally don't get clued in until it's time to leave.
The next group are "Hedo veterans" and those who have purchased this hilarious, all too accurate and necessary guide to having the most fun at the wildest, most wicked resort imaginable. The latter can be recognized by big smiles, genuine laughter, and a look of satisfaction they have from knowing as much as the "Hedo veterans" by being prepared.
Then there are the true savvy travelers. Any smart traveler worth his/her frequent flier miles relies on an up-to-date travel guide to get the very most out of a vacation. Chris Santilli's most recent update, although not a major revision, furnishes a bit more information and corrects information that is no longer accurate. In the breezy, conversational tone of this guide, the author often tells us tidbits about named staff at the resort. The 4th edition takes into account recent staff adjustments as well as other changes. There are also some new pictures.
We gladly purchased the 4th edition which, like the 2001 version, answered so many of our questions before our recent first trip. This new version just answered them with a greater degree of accuracy and we're glad we purchased the update before leaving. We'll pass our older version on to one of our many friends who seem to think their 1978 Fodor's works just fine, then are puzzled when we seem to have a much better time wherever we go.
Support this shoot-from-the-hip, fun-loving go naked gal who is the only author telling it like it is when it comes to Hedo. Buy the 4th edition and begin the countdown to your first, second, or umpteenth trip.
My wife learned that she is going to have to bring toenail polish because the sand on the beach will wear it off (uhhh yeah, that sounds right). There's lots of that kind of advice.
The book is filled with wonderful advice. There are also the pithy stories. It tells you what it's really like, without the hype. You learn that it's not the decadent snake pit that a lot of people make it out to be.
I imagine that if you've been to Hedo you will find this book a mirthfull book of memories.
The books is well written. It is worth every penny.
