Enjoyed a birthday getaway in June, despite the higher than normal temp, we found the staff friendly and most accommodating. The room was basic but most comfortable and love the grounds. Enjoyed pool, steam room and jacuzzi. Waking up steps to the pool and enjoying the less hot moring with coffee and contential breakfast fair was most relaxing.

Definitely the best value of the Warm Sands gay resorts. Had a nice large room with comfortable queen size bed. Nice TV, bathroom, closet. Includes fridge. Room cleaned beautifully every day. Great water pressure. Friendly staff. Nice pools. I prefer the unheated one but most seem to prefer the heated one. Also easy walk to downtown restaurants and gay bars.... More

Just stayed there last week from South Dakota and what a wonderful place to escape the cold. Bruce and Paul are great hosts and make you feel at home the minute you arrive at the property. Skip always makes sure there is a good breakfast for you in the morning. The place is very well maintained and clean. The hummingbirds... More

We were scheduled to stay elsewhere for the week of New Years when friends decided to join us and the place we were staying was sold out. From the moment I spoke to Paul, I knew this would be a good experience. He was so kind and helpful and very engaging. This property is a little gem. Mostly individual cottages/villas/casita...

I have visited El Mirasol by myself and with my partner, sometimes twice each year and sometimes only once, and we have consistently enjoyed every stay at El Mirasol - without exception! Hosts, Paul and Bruce, welcome guests back like family members and are never, ever, in your face. They are fantastic hosts, greeting guests by name around the pool,... More

Translated literally from the Spanish - El Mirasol - is just that and more! There's certainly plenty of Sun and Flowers in Palm Springs and the property boasts the warmth and divine hospitality one would expect from this magical and tranquil hotel and villas. Located just ten minutes from the airport, and greeted on arrival by Paul and Bruce, two... More

Had a great time here. Our room was big, the bed was very comfortable and everything was very clean. We had patio off of our room overlooking a garden area with fruit trees where hummingbirds buzzed around and birds sang all day. The grounds were nice, fountains and tropical plants throughout. The layout is such that each accommodation seemed to... More

My partner and I, joined by our friends from San Diego, visited her again for probably the 14th year, and we continue to love this beautiful, well-run guesthouse. The grounds are gorgeous -- bungalows built by Howard Hughes for his desert retreat and beautifully maintained landscaping. But what makes the place is the owners Paul and Bruce, who have become...

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
