I attended a 5-day "Rejuvenate with Jan Detox Cleansing Fast Retreat" at Lido Palms Resort and Spa. The owners Rod and Rosemary were great hosts, they went above & beyond to help make the reatreat a Success. The healing mineral pools and Jan's teachings resulted into a wonderful, Physically, Emotionally and most of all Spiritual exceperience.

We were in the desert to watch the annual BNP Paribas tennis tournament at Indian Wells. It was hard to find accommodations within a reasonable price range and luckily found Lido Palms. Just a short drive from other desert towns, this place is tucked into a small neighborhood with typical conveniences nearby. The grounds reminded me of classic Palm Springs... More

I loved this place. Clean, restful, three pools filled with miraculous mineral waters, this place is a gem in the desert. I attended a wonderfully cleansing juice retreat and the Lido Palms was the perfect spot for it. Very peaceful, terrific vistas and the owners take great pride in their wonderful resort. I am already planning another fast with our... More

I was there in January for a cleansing retreat led by Jan Minter. The whole experience was amazing. Who thought not eating for several days would be so fun and so satisfying! The Lido Palms was really sweet. Clean, pleasant and comfortable with spacious rooms. I really enjoyed the three choices of pools. A large swimming pool, big hot tub... More

Lido Palms is wonderful. Come and find out for yourselfs. Close to everything we needed. Quite, 3 natural mineral pools. Great rooms, no they're more like a small apartment. Come and feel the desert calling.

Nice hotel for the City of Desert Hot Springs. My wife was a bit afraid of the people in the town. Gang looking. The hotel was nice, but could use a good cleaning in our room. Pools nice, manager was very helpful finding a restaurant, just very concerned about our car being stolen. ie the city is marginal.

My husband and I have just returned from a week's first stay (NOT our last we both sincerely hope) at the Lido Palms. With 11 rooms, and well functioning kitchens set around a courtyard with a 20 person hot tub and larger pool outdoors, all heated directly from the San Andreas fault! Pools ranging from 95 degrees in temperature. Also... More

The pool is kept at 95 degrees, the Jacuzzi at 108.There is another indoor, fairly large, jacuzzi, and a dry sauna room , also inside.... More

We loved everything about our 2 night stay at Lido Palms. Our love affair started even before we checked in. We placed our reservation with Greg who was helpful, friendly and accommodating from the start. We checked in early, at Greg's suggestion, to a wonderful room with a separate generous kitchen that allowed one of us to do work on... More

My husband and I stayed with my mother and sister at The Lido over the Christmas holiday. This was our second stay here and after trying out a few other places, it has turned into our favorite place stay in Desert Hot Springs. We opted for one of the rooms with the two double beds instead of the king suite... More
