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...

An escape from the everyday strain, staying here is like a dream. And yet, it's also a home away from home. The staff is lovely and accommodating too! Florence is so knowledgable about the area and provides great insight to places of interest and restaurants to dine at... As a foodie, that's a major plus! And she's always so sweet... More

My wife and I experienced and witnessed exactly the things Tom mentioned in his review. In fact I was one of the accused "hoarders". I feel bad for having 3 hard boiled eggs but I was hungry. Maybe I was accused of hoarding because Flo (Manager on Duty) saw me with 4 eggs on my plate? I gave one of... More

We have previous stayed the El Moroccan Inn 2 times , once 2008 and 2009. They staff and stay was fantastic. But this time everything had changed. From our 1st conversation with the lady at the front Florence. All the parking was taken up in front of the hotel as we had got the last room. So we asked where... More
