I love coming to this place! If you like being around other like minded men, who may or may not be dressed, this is your kind of resort. I like to call it a classier version of a gay men's resort. This isn't a "day pass" kind of place, but if you're into that, go get a day pass at... More

Just returned from an 11 night stay at the Desert Paradise. I was very pleased with my stay! Located in the Warm Sands area of Palm Springs, where there is a great deal of competition for clothing optional accommodations, the Desert Paradise certainly met my expectations. I have stayed at other accommodations in the area and the Desert Paradise ranks... More

I wanted to spend some extra time in Palm Spring while I was there for business. I walked into this place and was immediately happy that I chose this resort. There are not many rooms but the amenities and cleanliness did it for me... And it's exactly what I wanted. I checked in on February 18 for 3 days but... More

Wanted a one night stay to see how Palm Springs has recovered from the depression. Last stayed there in 2009. Much upgrades in the rooms. Heated pool, hot jacuzzi, sauna and steam room too. Beautiful gardens and great people running it too. Afterwards we did the run up the mountain to Idylwild. Apple pie at the bakery there, then down... More

First off I rarely give 5 stars, so this is as good as it's gonna get. Located in the "Warm Sands" area The staff and guests were very nice. The staff wants to know if there are any issues.... so they can correct it. They're not clairvoyant. Everything was fine with our stay. The room was convenient to the whole... More

Great hotel for a guys weekend out. Comfortable great rooms and rates. Referred by a regular of the hotel and they gave me a discount. Laura will never find out! Very thoughtful hotel layout very little noise from nearby rooms.

It is the best hotel in Palm Springs, the staff are the greatest people, they makes me feel like I am home & I've met so many wonderful friends at the resort. Like the hotel site says, it is like my "home away from home" for me. I only stay here when I go to Palm Springs...I cannot wait to... More

I really liked this resort. The manager guy running it was hilarious and very accommodating. The rooms themselves were great - all named after gay icons - The Madonna room is the cheapest :) Everything is nice and cosy with just the right level of tack.

This is a small gay guys clothing optional resort....very low key and casual...the sauna and steam room need some upgrading...but grounds and rooms very well done...even the outdoor chandelier ...on a cool night is refreshing .Resort is convient to downtown and walking distance to the Tool Shed bar and Pete's Hideway restaurant..

My partner and I visit Palm Springs twice a year and like to stay at different resort hotels. This time we decided to patronize the Desert Paradise Gay Men's Resort and are very happy we did. From the time we checked in to the time we checked out, we were treated royally by the staff and felt very welcomed. The... More
