If you're looking for live DJ's and a dance floor, this isn't the place, but if you're looking for a place to relax poolside with friends or your partner, then this is the perfect find! The property has charm, the grounds are well kept, the hosts and day and evening staff are wonderful. The rooms are very clean, and well... More

I just got home from a 1 week stay at the EMV and I could not be more relaxed and refreshed! I noticed a few bad reviews, but honestly I cannot understand why. I suggest that you think about your expectations before you are underwhelmed and hurt someones business from bad reviews. This is my second time at the EMV... More

Although located in the heart of the 'notorious' Warm Sands area - and while still embracing clothing optional poolside - the vibe remains relaxed and not cruisy (and All Worlds is across the street if you do want a change of pace) El Mirasol is a charming little collection of bungalows and good sized studios with 2 pools and jacuzzi....

Firstly the pool view rooms back onto Ramon Rd which means you can hear the traffic from 6am onwards. Breakfast was very poor. No choice of juice, on second day only had grape jelly no soft cheese etc for bagels. Looked like it was too much effort to supply even a basic breakfast. Noise from old air con was too... More

The grounds of El Mirasol are nice sort of desert oasis feel. Hummingbirds, fountains, good variety of lush vegetation. The rooms are okay but not updated and they don't look clean. Shower tiles, bedding, carpet have seen better days. There aren't safes in the rooms, which is substandard. The old fashioned AC unit in my room was very wonky and... More

I just returned from two nights at El Mirasol Villas, and as usual Paul and Bruce hosted a relaxing vacation in the desert. For a Monday and Tuesday night, the resort had many guests, which made the pool and spa quite lively in a good way. The night manager Skip is very friendly and also a great host, the houseman...

I have stayed in many Gay Hotels over the years from the West coast of the USA to Europe. But, staying at El Mirasol, was by far the best ever. Paul and Bruce were so wonderful and so very friendly. Whatever ever I needed it was there for me. Being with a disability, my needs were met with perfection. The... More

Just returned from a six day stay at this resort. It was our fifth resort we have been to. The grounds are quite beautiful and rare in the gay resorts of Palm Springs. This resort has a beautiful Mexican hacienda feel to it including the decor and a bit dated furniture. The main pool was heated to a decent temperature... More

What a great low key and beautiful place! My first visit to Palm Springs did not disappoint. Two pools, one unheated, hot tub, and steam room. My room was well appointed, the continental breakfast was excellent and Bruce & Paul were good hosts with a vault of information. Beautiful grounds with oranges and lemons. It was very uncrowded when i... More

Our first stay at El Mirasol Villas. We have travels to Palm Springs for many years and were very pleased with El Mirasol. Paul and Bruce are wonderful hosts checking on guests needs daily. We stayed for 2 weeks and enjoyed Halloween and Pride. The grounds and our room (unit 15) were very comfortable. We used the pool jacuzzi and... More
