We made a one night trip from Los Angeles and we couldn't be more satisfied. The resort is small and cozy with a terrific pool, nice rooms and friendly staff. Snacks and soft drinks are complimentary. Definitely would choose this place again!

My husband and I have been guests on four previous occasions and always had a great experience. Our recent stay was better than ever. New owners have embarked on a renovation project (new paint colors, new furniture, etc.) that is making this gem of a resort even better. The continental breakfast and box lunches are included in the price and... More

This was my first stay at The Santiago Resort. The new owners have invested a lot of money to update and freshen the rooms, the resort, the service and the pool. The new management is engaged and brings life into the place, as old rumors start to fade from the previous owners and management. As word gets out that there... More

New owners really made improvements and are continuing to make this hotel better. We are already booked for another stay. Our recent stay was nearly perfect and as close to ideal as it gets. Breakfast and lunch is provided and snacks, etc are available all day and night.

This is my second stay at the Santiago Resort. The hotel has recently been remodeled and the rooms are beautiful; simple and comfortable, yet very tastefully done. The staff keeps the place spotless. The Santiago has a huge swimming pool surrounded by foliage which makes for a nice atmosphere. There are hammocks which are great for relaxing and they include... More

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

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.
