This is a great hotel with that home away from home feeling. Our room had a living room, full kitchen and separate bedroom with a nice private backyard/patio area. The rooms feel like your in your own little apartment with all the amenities and the pool area has the feel of being in your backyard. The hotel staff is very... More

We came out to Palm Springs on Vacation and booked a room here. The Rooms are super cute and comfortable. The staff is extremely nice and pleasant. They go out of their way to help you with anything you need. We had a large party stay at the hotel and they were terrific to us. Housekeeping and the front desk... More

My wife and I had an excellent birthday getaway here. Service was excellent and the grounds were immaculate. We always love this place because Norma and Ron make us feel like family. I highly recommend the hike across the street to the secret waterfall. Super fun!

Wow, our favorite place to stay in Palm Springs has gone down hill. When we checked in, we found a used q-tip on the floor, burned out light bulbs and one of closets used for hotel storage. There is a group here this weekend and my wife and I have no problem with the fun they are having. Except there... More

This was perfect for my husband and I, my mom and my 2 Pekingese pups. We had a fully enclosed patio, which was half concrete and half grass and the dogs loved it. There were 2 beds in a separate bedroom and nice furniture throughout. A little kitchen with all necessities was perfect too. The grounds are well kept and... More

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.
