We stayed at this resort several years ago, and loved the location. After reading reviews, I was nervous about our visit. Our family had a great experience at the Desert Princess, and visiting during the off season was so much more relaxing. Chela helped us at check in, and she let us look at a couple rooms, and choose the... More

Other than a few employees (the manager and everyone at the front desk, except Jessica) this place was a nightmare. My mom and youngest sister, my sister and her baby and husband, and my husband and myself all met at this place for a nice relaxing weekend together for the first time in forever, and it was the worst place...

I apologize we were unable to meet your expectations. We continuously are making improvements to the property while trying to remain competitively priced within the area but from your comments we fell miserably far from achieving our goal of providing a clean friendly environment. We will use your comments as a learning tool as we strive to improve. More

No complaints... staff was great. Golf was great and at a great price! Pool was great! Overall I give the resort an "A"! And, I know that my family and I would stay at Desert Princess Resort again. We stayed during the hottest month of the year, so the hotel was not full and they probably do not open the... More

My first trip to Palm Springs definitely wont be my last thanks to Desert Princess. While the rooms are average the price is fantastic. The grounds and spa are exquisite. I scheduled a couple massage which was wonderful. I was impressed that many of the hotel guests we met in the pool were from nearby Orange County and use this... More

Felt like the only guests there as we never seen or heard anyone else. Rooms are spacious but are starting to show signs of age. Would definitely stay at again. Caution: resort fee charged at check out.

This trip was our third stay. Each time, we had a fabulous time. The resort is beautiful and clean. There were no bug problems inside the rooms. The pool is amazimg: its clean and long so you can swim laps. On our first two trips everything was great. On our recent trip, a group of noisy ecocentric young adults invaded... More

The views here are as beautiful as the website and the two members of staff we saw during our three night stay were very friendly and helpful.

Thank you for your comments. Generally this time of year is quiet except during the weekends. The hot summer days tend to send visitors west to the beach. We're glad you enjoyed your visit and the serenity we provided. We hope you will return in the very near future. More
