My husband and I spent a couple of nights back in May at The Desert Eclipse Resort and we have nothing but positive things to say about our stay there! It's a dog friendly, clean, and private. On our second night there we learned that we were the only people checked in at the resort. We had the entire place... More

Me and my BF stayed over the last weekend in May. The weather was about 100-103 each day. The pool was so wonderful to lay naked in all day. There were a few other guests that we chatted with and the owners were very friendly and did whatever to make us feel comfortable. They have a grill which we used... More

This was our first trip to Palm Springs and our first trip to Desert Eclipse. We already can't wait to go back. Location: Desert Eclipse is perfectly situated just blocks from downtown and the grocery store. So if you want to be able to walk places, as we did, this place fits the bill. Grounds: The grounds are beautiful and... More

Stayed here for a month and could have or should have stayed longer, it was just that perfect. Formerly known as The Columns, Michael and Scott have turned this establishment into a cozy luxury paradise. With its original seven units and two new units added recently, the resort is the perfect size to meet interesting people. For long term stays,... More

My boyfriend and I were so impressed by every aspect of our visit last week to the Desert Eclipse Resort. From the minute we arrived, Michael & Scott made us feel welcome. The room & kitchen was well appointed and tastefully decorated-- Jeff Lewis would be proud and based on how clean the room was, you'd assume that Zoila was... More

This is our fifth visit to the Desert Eclipse after trying out several properties in Palm Springs. The rooms are spotless, the pool is saltwater, and the size of the resort is perfect. We always meet friendly people - but the hosts, Michael and Scott, are the reason we keep returning to Palm Springs. They are so warm and welcoming,... More

My partner and I just returned from our second visit to Desert Eclipse and found it to be just as nice as it was the first time. The guest rooms are luxuriously appointed, modern and very comfortable. The entire property is impeccably well maintained. The owners, Scott and Michael, are most hospitable. I would not hesitate to recommend Desert Eclipse... More

My Partner and I stayed at Desert Eclipse in October 2013. What a wonderful little Gem in the desert. We were picked up by Michael, one of the owners, from the Airport and brought a short drive to their little oasis. The resort although small, has a wonderfully warm feel to it. Everything was immaculate. Our room, number 6, had... More

We just spent a week at the Resort, first time visiting and will definitely go back. Michael & Scott are great hosts, the rooms are lovely and having kitchenettes are a bonus. Really enjoyed ourselves. Adam & Thomas

Seven rooms are very clean and comfortable with salt water pool clothing optional sun bathing. Guests tend to be 30's and 40's and very friendly. Very nice continental breakfast with 24hr coffee and sodas. Parking in front of the resort and near several other gay resorts. I would stay again and also pet friendly.
