Each time I have visited this hotel, I have fallen in love with the beautiful environment and peaceful setting. If you need to get away from the hustle and bustle and TRULY deactivate from everything, this is the place for you. If I could live at Korakia all year round, I would. Also worth mentioning, this hotel is incredibly romantic.... More

This collection of buildings is either Mediterranean (one side of the street) or Moorish (on the side of the street nearer to the mountains). The Moorish/Moroccan building began life almost 100 years ago as the invention/creation of its Scottish artist/owner. Even by Palm Springs standards, the grounds are expansive and must have been very grand in its day. A major... More

If you want great service, and a quiet location to spend with your loved one or your friends, then this is the place for you. I wouldn't recommend it for young families. I loved hanging out by the heated outdoor pool or the outdoor gas fireplace. They do show movies if you are in the hotel in the evening, but... More

This is a very charming older facility in a great neighborhood in PS. No TVs, no kids, but lots of peace and quiet. The rooms are all different - we had the Adobe, which was on the small side but perfectly adequate. This place is meant to be enjoyed outside in the patio areas, where breakfast is served, or around... More

The hotel is great, we have been thinking about it ever since. Room is comfortable, pools are nice,and quiet and the staff is great. Breakfast in the morning was great, borrowed bikes to roll around town. Can say enough good stuff.

Ahhhhh! We had a quick overnight stay here recently. Beautiful, peaceful, serene. The room we stayed in had a cool stone bath and ultra comfy bed. It was minimalist in its furnishings, so no too comfortable if you wanted to hang in your room or on our porch area. But, everything else was top notch. Loved the soothing heated pools... More

I stayed here after returning from deployment in order to unwind and relax. Prefect place to do so. The Mediterranean vibe was charming and it was so beautiful. Breakfast was amazing but small portions. If you stay by yourself, have them just bring tow meals, for you an your "guest" to your room, so you can fill up.

We stayed two nights at Korakia and had a first class experience. We were warmly welcomed by Paulette upon arrival at this quiet sanctuary in Palm Springs. We stayed in the historic Artist Studio which was spacious and elegant. Paulette gave us a few excellent suggestions for dinner in the area. Korakia is just a few short blocks from downtown... More

The ladies who run Korakia are wonderful, the breakfasts in the morning are great, it's clean and quiet, in a perfect location, right between downtown and the mountains, the art gallery and golf course are nearby. If you want piece and quiet, look no further.

Few hotels can deliver romantic escapes like these delux lodgings do, but few hotels deliver it as effortlessly and with such perfect detail as this pensione does. We pulled off the California Interstate Highway, passed through the whitewashed gates, and suddenly you are thousands of kms away in Tangiers. Maybe its because the dry heat and endless sunshine of Palm... More
