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..

The pool was lovely and warm for the time of year (December), the gardens were a delight and the room was comfortable. It was nice to have facilities in the room to prepare simple snacks.We used a car to get about... More

Good rates, excellent rooms, superb staff, wonderful location, free breakfast and all the important amenities that make a Palm Springs stay enjoyable. Nice pool, Jacuzzi, Steam Room, Sauna, Cable TV.

We stayed here a few times so that should count for something. I won't spend time on the negatives because I think we got our monies worth. I like the lush grounds and the small steam room. The wall safe is not a secure (real safe) so don't count on putting anything of great value in it. The manager (Dale)... More

Ive kept in touch with a couple of the other guests after leaving the resort. We stayed in the Marilyn Monroe Presidential suite, which was described on their website as "so nice Dale... More

I seem to have rediscovered Palm Spring. When I was younger I used to visit the desert often for dancing and partying. Now I find myself visiting for a relaxing getaway. My normal hotel choice was booked so I thought I'd give Desert Paradise a try. I'm glad I did. The rate ended up being less than my usual property... More

My partner and I were there for a week March 9-16. The resort is absolutely BEAUTIFUL. The pictures don't do it justice. Attention is paid to every detail of this place. The landscaping is lush and well cared for. The sounds of the water features and quiet music are very soothing. The rooms are nicely updated and emaculate. We stayed... More
