Very relaxing, clean rooms, beautiful views by pool area. Friendly and professional staff made our stay very pleasant. Beds are new and very comfortable. Grounds are clean with many pools. My partner and I booked our room to go back for Labor day weekend. We recommend it.

New owner Mo and his team are really making the difference. Rooms are continuously being upgraded and his new team is turning this place back to its old glory. This simply is the best gay resort in Palm Springs. The resort has it all, 3 pools, plentiful privacy with more then enough opportunities to enjoy the naughty side of Palm... More

This is a great gay destination. Rooms are clean and spacious. Staff is friendly and accommodating. 4 pools and 2 jacuzzis so you have plenty of room to roam. Plus a continental breakfast is always a good thing. Definitely coming back!

Stayed here two nights during Coachella weekend - a very busy, usually booked out, time in PS. This place still had rooms; that should perhaps have been warning enough! I booked via a major online reservation system that implied that only a couple of rooms were left, and these were thus the most expensive suites. In reality the place was... More
