The staff are friendly and helpful, the beds comfortable and the whole place a wonderful oasis -- especially in the heat of summer. But we also like the clientele the place attracts -- diverse ages and backgrounds, and we always make lasting friendships from our stays here. The place is clothing optional; some choose to be nude and others do... More

I just returned fom eight wonderful days at La Dolce Vita. It was my second week long visit there and trust me, a week is just not long enough! The linens, the bath products, the rooms, the entire experience is top notch. I had two spa treatments while there, a sugar scrub followed by a soothing massage. Jim, my massage... More

We stayed there over a weekend. Great room, the manager really made us felt at home. Very relaxed place with a really good breakfast every morning and a poolside happy hour in the evenings, Met some good friends while we were there. Overall would go back on a heartbeat!

My husband and I decided to spend some time together to celebrate our 33rd anniversary. It had been over 5 years since our last visit to Palm Springs and our usual choice of hotel had changed hands. We decided on La Dolce Vita based on other reviews on this site and others. We were not disappointed. From the moment we... More

This is our first time in Palm Springs and chose a Men only resort for a chilled and relaxed few days whilst on a 3 week road trip around USA. There are 2 pools and most properties open onto one of these. The property is well maintained and rooms vary from basic room/bathroom to more deluxe rooms. Push the dollars... More

My partner and I have been going to La Dolce Vita for for seven years now, ever since our first anniversary together. Ken, Tim and the staff are always super friendly whether you're checking in, being served a cocktail at social hour, or just need extra towels. The grounds are clean and neat much like the rooms and neighborhood. No... More

A friend and I were in the area for Coachella. Though it was quite a distance from the event, we wanted something that would be a respite from the constant thump-thump of a three-day music festival in the desert. This place was just what we needed. Though neither my travel companion nor I are prudes, we were a little surprised... More

Thanks so much for your comments on La Dolce Vita. We are pleased that you had a very positive experience at the Resort and would recommend us. In reference to breakfast, the County of Riverside Health Department is very strict as to what a hotel can serve without having a full restaurant on-site. Our permit is called a upscale continental... More

My husband and I enjoyed our stay here just after Memorial Day, and enjoyed making new Facebook friends with others staying there. The relaxing nude pool atmosphere was great for all 5 days other than one afternoon when an overally sexually charged Canadian guest decided to go out of bounds, but was promptly dressed down by Management. Bravo! The room... More
