We arrived after lunch on a Sunday afternoon, changed into our swimsuits and headed out to the pool. On Tuesday afternoon, we changed out of our swimsuits for the drive home. That was the extent of our trip to the El Morocco and we absolutely LOVED it. If you want fancy & stuffy service, if you want night life, if... More

Amazing spa retreat! It's located in a quiet residential neighborhood. No children or pets allowed. Very quiet. The staff is fantastic. Complimentary:continental breakfast, snacks (dates, apricots and almond cookies)mineral springs water( rated # 1), lite martinis, sherry and dvd's. Lunch & dinner need to be delivered or take-out. Great quaint restaurants within walking distance. Huge authentic Arabian tent for yoga... More

A friend of mine gave me a tip on this resort and spa in Desert Hot Springs just 10 minutes from downtown Palm Springs. Tucked away on a quiet street is this discrete hideaway and as you walk through the front door you feel like you have been transported to an exotic faraway paradise! I've never experienced anything quite like... More

I hesitate to give El Morocco such a great review for fear that there will be no rooms available the next time we can go! We got the 2 night massage package and had 2 of the best massages we have ever had. We then relaxed in the mineral hot spring fed hot tub while we sipped on our happy... More

My wife and I took a 3 day / 2 night getaway vacation here just 2 weeks ago. The owner and the entire staff is so helpful and kind. The rooms are incredible and clean. The entire property was quiet, calm and total relaxation. The natural hot springs pools were amazing and the couples massage was one of the best... More

Couldn't think of a better place to do my first review. We've stayed here 1-2 times a year since 2008, mainly during the BNP Paribas Open tennis tournament, and have enjoyed every visit. It's honestly hard for me to get relaxed, but this place does it. Small quiet setting, comfortable pool and spa, and with an attentive and friendly staff.... More

My husband gave me an early birthday present by buying me a spa treatment at the El Morrocco Inn and Spa. What a wonderful experience! One of the best massages I have ever had! We were invited to stay the entire day and soak in the mineral pools, etc. but we were on a time schedule. The rooms are beautiful... More

Wasn't sure what to expect when we arrived at the El Morocco. It has a very unassuming exterior on a residential street. But once we walked through the door it was like being transported into another country. Full disclosure... we did not stay overnight there but instead just came for the spa. The have day passes for anyone to come... More

We stayed during the week for our anniversary. It was very quiet with only one other couple checked in. We enjoyed everything about El Morocco! The mineral pool and spa was great, the melting massages were even better! We stayed for two nights and brought our food since we had a room with a kitchenette. We enjoyed happy hour nightly....

There is not much one has to say, as most reviews say it all. This place is a little dream oasis in the desert. Though the town is not much to speak for (thank God for Palm Springs not too far, for restaurants and night life), this place is a little shangrilla in the middle of nowhere. The owners have...
