I had a wonderful experience with my stay at La Dolce Vita Resort and Spa. I'm trying to think of things that were problematic, and nothing can come to mind. I stayed for eight nights as a solo traveler, and the place definitely became home for those eight days. The owners, the staff, and also important, the other guests were... More

Palm Springs is my idea of the perfect getaway, and La Dolce Vita is the perfect resort and spa. This was my 4th visit to "The Sweet Life" and, as usual, owners Ken and Tim rolled out the red carpet. My room had everything I needed; the views were breathtaking; and the vibe was "chill." La Dolce Vita transports me... More

Wow!! Fun men's resort with class, clothing optional. Sunshine with late afternoon shade. Pools are clean with PERFECT temperature, not cold. Cushioned lounge chairs & accent pillows. Music on speakers is relaxing with enjoyable variety of past and current hits. Morning is easy listening music, thanks. Delicious continental breakfast with variety and fruit. Nice Happy Hour drinks & crackers/veggie tray... More

Great, relaxed property and some of the most personable staff that I've ever experienced. We were welcome from the moment we arrived. Staff remembered our names and made sure that we had all that we needed. To boot, I forgot my credit card in the room (put it on the desk and totally forgot it). Got a phone call immediately... More

I have made numerous trips to La Dolce Vita since 2008 and my most recent with my partner just last week once again exceeded expectations. If you let them, in the course of your stay at La Dolce Vita, the rest of your guests will become like family – if your family was made up of all Gay, semi-clad, men.... More

This is the second time my companion and I stayed at La Dolce Vita. The second time was not as enjoyable. We visited in April and we booked and reserved a specific room well in advance. We were told the room would be reserved for us.. We arrived and we were told that the person in our room decided to... More

This review is from one year ago. We absolutely agree that the employee you are referring to was obnoxious and very abrupt with our guests. He hasn't worked here in 6 months. Our Innkeepers and the owners run the social hours now. Come back, you will see quite a difference. More

Before I get to the negative please understand that I do see the value of this property. I would actual rate it on the borderline between fair and poor. Also it depends on what is important to you. If a clean bed at a gay resort is your priority it may be just fine for you. I found the resort... More

Dear HyacinthtBouquet, We are so sorry that your stay at La Dolce was not up to your expectations. Many of our guest rooms have casement windows which are very popular in Palm Springs. We will investigate why the window of your guest room did not operate properly. We are glad you enjoyed our hot tubs, pools, steam room and foliage.... More

We pick this guest house by the reviews, well I will write a correct one. The grounds are very nice, there are two warm pools, the room are fine in size but need a facelift fast.

We just returned from La Dolce Vita and had one of the most relaxing stays we've ever had in Palm Springs. Ken, Tim and staff make you feel right at home. I was impressed by the cleanliness of the hot tub and steam room. Keep up the good work boys!
