I have stayed at Santiago Resort for many years, and I have to say that it is by far one of the best run, relaxing and hospitable resorts I have ever had the good fortune to visit. The rooms are modern and stylish, being very well-kept and clean, they feature wifi, phone docking stations, snacks, great a/c, high quality towels... More

It remains very quiet but friendly with the same home away from home feeling...from the excellent staff Jay and Mark and all the others who were so very accommodating and were prepared for any and all of our wishes, to...

My partner and I were going from Vegas to San Diego and decided to stop in Palm Springs. It was after 8 when we called the Santiago and Jay Rifkin answered the phone. He said they were closed already but that he would wait for us. Not only did he wait for us, he turned on the a/c in our... More

I've stayed at this resort several times and there are several reasons it feels like home. The staff (Jay, Mark, Oscar, and Bob) are all great...they pamper their guests and make very attempt to exceed expectations and at least for this reviewer, the staff makes the resort feel like home. The setting is tranquil and very scenic. I request a... More

Stayed there a week ago as a solo traveler. The room was very nice and clean, the breakfast was ample (no hot food but you can toast bagels and waffles) and lunch is included (you order from a nice selection of sandwich or salad before 11am and get food delivered by 1pm). Swimming pool was great - you can get... More

We hadn't been to a gay resort in Palm Springs for years, and are sure glad we chose Santiago. This trip was for our 21st anniversary, and we wanted it to be special. Not much to say except that everything was perfect. From the nice rooms, beautiful grounds, welcoming and helpful staff, delicious (included) breakfast and lunches, there was nothing... More

I have stayed at the Santiago Resort many times over the years, and I must say, it only gets better. The well-maintained resort grounds are lush and beautiful, offering a stunning view of the mountains. The lounge chairs are comfortable and plentiful, which means you'll never have to worry about getting out to the pool early enough to reserve your... More

My Boyfriend and I wanted to go to a gay resort. We got a recommendation from another family member and they couldn't have been more correct. The room was great, the staff was super friendly and makes great breakfast. The grounds are clean and well maintained. Great pool and great times were had.

Over the past 15 years we have stayed at almost all the gay places in PS. Last week was our first stay at Santiago and I loved it! First, the pool is the best. It's huge and clean and by far my favorite pool in all of PS. Some bonuses: good breakfast and great catered lunch every day (and snacks... More
