We decided at the last minute to go to the Indian Wells tennis tournament, and this hotel was the highest-rated place in the area with a room available. We had never been to DHS, and had stayed at the LaQuinta Resort in the past. Bottom line: this small hotel is simply wonderful. Our room is spotlessly clean and we love... More

I visited (and reviewed) Lido Palms in 2007 and had been trying to get back ever since. When I finally got there, it was every bit as wonderful as I remembered! Ownership has changed in the meantime, but Greg and Rod have kept all of the old amenities (including the roadrunners!) while upgrading the rooms. This is a casual sort... More

We love going down to the desert, Lido Palms, our home away from home. This was for our family, a short weekend trip between the holidays. We all work retail, and needed a dip in the natural mineral water to rejuvenate our tired body's. Perfect weather combined with the relaxed atmosphere of Lido Palms pool's was a hit with the...

Have stayed at the Lido Palms twice for retreats with my men's group. The rooms are comfortable with an eat-in kitchenette. I've only stayed in the rooms with a king bed and have found the stylish sofa to be a bit uncomfortable for extended seating. The beds have Tempurpedic mattresses and are extremely comfortable. The natural mineral spas are wonderful.... More

I'm very torn writing this review. I really don't want you readers to come stay there. But I guess I will have to tell you about it. This is not a fancy resort. It is a 50's style motel that has been refurbished and upgraded and is well-kept. They have 10 rooms all around a large pool and outdoor spa.... More

I recently returned from the Rejuvenate With Jan' retreat. I'm a locale, and have been to almost every boutique size resort in Desert Hot Springs for my job. This is by far the best. Clean and comfortable. The ample rooms are cozy and fully equipped. I was thrilled that the beds were temperpedic. Between that and the pools and Jan's... More

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
