We had a very romantic weekend at this hotel. It's a small boutique hotel that offers many touches that make it special. Snacks, sipping sherry, and cocktail hour are some of the amenities. The room was sensual and inviting. The mineral pool and Jacuzzi were tranquil. We enjoyed massages with an abundance of fragrant oils. It's an enjoyable place to... More

We stayed in this hotel in April and I was hesitant to write a review because there are so many wonderful reviews about this place, but not everything is so wonderful. This hotel is very nice, exotic and romantic. The rooms are very well theme decorated but the bathroom is very small, we stayed in the room Harem's Hideaway. The... More

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

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
