Ken and Tim, phenomenal resort owners and now friends, have established and instituted an attitude that provides Fabulous, Personable, and Courteous customer service with sincere efforts to assure your stay there is all you want it to be.

I recently returned for yet another incredible and flawless stay at La Dolce Vita. As always, Tim and Ken, along with their very keen staff, welcome you as if you are their only guest. The accommodations, which include Aveda products, are top notch, the pools sparkle, the breakfast is always fresh and plentiful and the grounds are in tip top... More

We've stayed quite a few times and are always impressed with the personable owner and staff, the friendly folks from all over US and abroad we meet, nicely landscaped grounds, on-site spa, whirpools/steam room and comfy bed/Aveda toiletries...and free Wi-Fi! It's a cozy (20-rooms) gay clothing optional resort (where all body types are welcome). Unfortunately pets cannot be accommodated due... More

The dolce vita was our 4th stay in Palm Springs, and we had wanted to try something new. Unfortunately, there is a lack of love for every detail. Somewhat dirty, and quite empty. The so called happy hour was a rather sad event. We will not come again. Better choose another place.

Hello Mr. Flugbaer. We reviewed your review on La Dolce Vita Resort & Spa, LLC. We are uncertain if you have actually stayed at our Village. We have no record of anyone from Germany staying with us recently and your comment regarding the Resort being empty doesn't make sense. In our 10 year of serving the Gay community, this year...

Stayed here three times, and every time there we met great people, had a great stay. Two pools are very nice. Comfortable beds. We rented an apartment-style suite so we could make our own lunch instead of driving around to find a restaurant. Ate out for dinner mainly. What a great time! Courteous, helpful staff. Nice day spa for men.

Spent the last 5 days ay La Dolce Vita with my friends and had a great time and met a famulous couple that I have a feeling we will be seeing again. The staff is amazing and the hotel is close enough to great food and the bars. We will be coming back!

Nice place, cordial,helpful staff and owners. Nice clean rooms;we had a private patio and enjoyed that. Beds- super comfortable. 2 pools, steam(not working on our visit, but was being fixed) 2 hot tubs- all adequate. Best part for me was location- this part of town, Deepwell, I think it's called. Very safe, great for walks or runs and close to... More

Hi Jamie, Thank you so much for the review. It was a fun week, wasn't it; perfect weather and nice guys. As you mentioned someone did enjoy the steam room a little too much, dancing on the benches. That is why we needed to close the stream room... but our wonderful Jason had the bench repaired and up and running... More
