A good friend and I visit Palm Springs quite regularly and have always stayed at a large hotel that is now closed. In looking for somewhere new we happened upon A Place in the Sun and how lucky we did. Our bungalow was charming, a touch of the past with all the modern amenities. The location was convenient and, being... More

A Place in the Sun is a truly magical setting for families to gather and memories to be made. Twenty of our family and friends spent Mother's Day Weekend in this quaint paradise. The age range was from 2 to 73 years old and each and every one of us loved every minute of our time at A Place in... More

A great time was spent at "A Place in the Sun".. Beautiful big pool with salt water & lots of places to sit around the pool. It is stepping back in time(50's) where life was more relaxed. Room was large with a sofa , kitchen and private patio. If you love to golf, there is a putting green ,which is... More

Another great visit. It's like stepping back in time to a simpler era. What a nice relaxing way to spend a few days. Most rooms have full kitchens and a private yard. All rooms are around the pool and hot tub. I believe this was my 15th visit.

This trip was with three friends and we shared a spacious one bedroom bungalow with a sofa bed in the living area. Staff were very helpful. Place was attractive with flowers centered around a swimming pool/inside courtyard. Private patio area was attached to each bungalow. I would stay there again.

Bungalow style 50's motel. This has been well updated. Rooms are large and have private patio which is wonderful. The rooms are very clean. The pool is small but very nice setting. You don't feel like you are in a huge resort hotel pool with the hordes and lots of commotion. Nice to sit by the pool and have a... More

For those who enjoy the retro motel style accommodations that have become so popular in Palm Springs, this is a good option. We booked a garden patio room which gave us a bungalow with a private place to relax outdoors if the pool chatter got tiresome. Overall it was nice and quiet with responsive management. The bathroom and kitchen were... More

If you want fanciness, this isn't it. But if you want to relax and talk to other guests like they are your long lost aunt and uncle - come here! We sat by the pool and made food on the bbq and chatted with everyone who came and went. It's quiet and peaceful and beautiful here. And the rooms were... More

Needed a place for two nights during the Indian Wells Tennis Tournament. This is a pleasant collection of cottages surrounding the central pool. Our room (I can't remember if it was 17 or 19) had a bedroom, living room and kitchenette but it felt cramped because of the half wall separating the two which made for very tight walking around...

I apologize for the my delay in writing a review for this wonderful hotel...... My husband and I were in town in February for him to ride in the Tour de Palm Springs and for both of us to get in some relaxation. APITS is THE place for that!! We have stayed here several times before and always go home... More
