I've stayed here several times before (see my previous review) and decided to stay again for the 4th of July weekend. As always it was a great stay. The property looks the same as it has since I started coming here 3 years ago. They really maintain it well! Stayed in a larger room this time (thanks for the unexpected... More

Once again, this is the best men's resort in the desert. The staff is very attentive. The rooms are clean and nicely appointed. The place has a cool, low key vibe and I always enjoy the Ritz Carlton like atmosphere. This is a fantastic place to stay and I can't recommend it highly enough.

We had a wonderful four night stay at Pura Vida. The staff is attentive without being intrusive. The rooms are magnificent and well designed (we stayed in Room #4). It is a small resort (total of eight rooms). If one is looking for a loud, party atmosphere, there are other choices in Palm Springs to fit that bill. However, for... More

My partner and I spent 5 nights at Pura Vida in March. We love this resort and its two wonderful owners. The beds are super comfortable. The showers are unbeatable (beautiful stone all around, rain shower head, bench). The location is right in Warm Sands, close to everything important in PS. And the price is not that much more than...

My partner and I spent a week at Pura Vida. We tried it after reading reviews and looking at the pictures on Trip Advisor. From the moment we walked in we noticed how well maintained the property was and how nice the staff was. David, Peter, Mark and Aaron always made sure we had everything we needed. We stayed in...

I just spent a fantastic weekend here. It is truly sublime. The design and decor is perfect for the desert. The standards for cleanliness and hospitality rival any Ritz Carlton. I had the Pura Vida Suite because of the added privacy and it was perfect for what I wanted. I cannot recommend this place enough! I booked my May trip... More

I've stayed at many resorts in Palm Springs and Pura Vida far surpasses others. Each suite is unique and elegantly designed with indoor spa, spacious rooms, beautiful pieces of art and private clothing-optional patio space. Service is exceptional, polite, always available but not intrusive. The pool and common areas are also beautiful, welcoming, and inviting. Breakfast was great, indoor, outdoor... More

After checking into the Ace and realizing that it wasn't where we wanted to spend our holiday weekend, we did a quick search of other options in the area, and, fortunately for us, Pura Vida Palm Springs had one room available. I have stayed at and/or visited several properties in Palm Springs (gay, straight and private homes), and Pura Vida,... More

Thanks very much for your great review, Peter & I and the staff sincerely appreciate it. We're glad you changed hotels & decided to stay with us. As the Warm Sands area has a variety of hotels, we have positioned ourselves at the top end as a true all inclusive luxury resort, an escape from some of the more active... More
