You don't have to be gay to stay here but it would probably help since this resort is clothing optional and for men only. Not everyone is nude but you will see naked men enjoying the grounds. Guests must be Over 18. This resort does not offer day passes so everyone that's enjoying the pool and the grounds is a... More

This was our 5th visit. Being concerned with change of ownership we all were pleasantly surprised with the upgrades. New bedding and more importantly more staff. The rooms clean, the staff exceptional, the grounds beautiful and the large pool inviting. Our large rooms came with 2 large queen comfortable beds, oversized chair and furniture cabinet which included small refrigerator, in... More

The Santiago is our "go to" when traveling to Palm Springs. It is located between the Ace Hotel and downtown Palm Springs, all within a 5 minute ride. Their pool is large, offering a western view, perfect for a full day of sunshine. Accommodations are clean, a bit dated, but they are upgrading soon. They have increased their staff ratio,... More

The rooms are superb and spacious, bath products are very nice. Breakfast and lunch are served within the compound no worries about getting out or putting ur clothes on. Very relaxing environment except for lacking of amenities, such as gym nor video library or sauna.

I recently stayed at Santiago for the first time when my usual Palm Springs resort was booked full. I'm really glad I did! It is a wonderful property and the staff are friendly and attentive. The pool is very nice and the free lunch is a pleasant touch. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. I look forward... More

If you want to stay over in PS the Santiago is a very safe choice. Rooms are clean, grounds are neat and the staff is pretty friendly. Furnishings are a bit tired and dated, I guess I came away with the tought it could be so much more interesting. Quiet location, not walkable. Clothing optional gay.

Whenever we want to relax for a few days we head to the Santiago Resort. The property is clean and the staff is friendly. We recently learned the ownership has changed so hopefully things will remain the same. There has been an increase in staff (John Michael, Luca, Wes, Bob and Oscar) and they were all friendly and helpful. We're... More

Thanks for the nice review, Roger. We are under new ownership. There are familiar faces and new faces. All of us are very excited for what's ahead. Although we plan on making some very important upgrades and bulk up our amenities, we promise there will be NO CHANGES to the clientele or the operations. We are so lucky to have... More

I came back this year again after Christmas and really enjoyed my stay. The weather was little cold but hot tub and pool were great and the area is away from the wind so it seemed little warmer. I would recommend staying here Matt

This traveler has been enjoying the Santiago resort for more than a decade! Though passed around more than a straw at a LA party, this gay icon in the desert is under good management at the present time and is a very enjoyable travel experience! Though I heard murmurings of re-design , re-decoration or sale in my recent trip there,... More
