Comfortable rooms at a reasonable price. It's one of the best deals I've found in PS, especially for a single room without a kitchen. The owners are great -- friendly and helpful. The breakfast is fine. And there always seem to be fun guests staying there for enjoyable social interaction. And even though it's on the south side of the... More

I feel conflicted about this review and providing only three stars when there are other less deserving properties that are even more overrated but I have come to expect that most reviewers on this site are less discerning or do not understand what "5 stars" actually means. The property is lovely and the host was quite warm and welcoming when... More

My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary at Tortuga Del Sol. Property is clean and well kept. Rooms are clean and well maintained. Bed was extremely comfortable. Friendly and very accommodating staff. Heated pool was kept very clean, as was the hot tub. Quiet, friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Would definitely stay here again!

I'm a single middle aged guy who occasionally takes off for Palm Springs, looking for reasonable accomodations in a gay resort. Tortuga del Sol worked perfectly for me. It's small, the clientele was older and very mellow, the owner was friendly but not intrusive, and I enjoyed my small room. It's probably not for everyone: the pink 1950's bathroom was... More

We only spent a weekend here but it was a very nice stay.The owners greeted us upon arrival and showed us around. The rooms were clean and the hotel common areas were nice. A great pool and hot tub as well. the bathroom could have used a little update as it was a bit dated but I think the owners... More

A friend and I stayed one night at the Tortuga Del Sol. Check in with Rob was very easy and we were given the best room in the resort at a reduced rate because it was Tuesday and there was only one other guest. I am sure the place is packed on the weekend. Our room was clean and in... More

I spent 5 nights at Tortuga Del Sol, and was very pleased with my experience. Although the place is not super fancy, it's quite pleasant, clean and comfortable, and I loved the bed in my room. The pool and spa area are quite nice and well maintained. Plus the place is a good bargain. Ric and Rob, the owners, were... More

We just finished our third stay at Tortuga. Over the last 8 years this has been our choice for Palm Springs accommodations serving the gay community. The vibe feels right to us. It's friendly and relaxed with nice hosts (Rob and Ric). We usually prefer the larger Hacienda room category with full kitchen. Housekeeping is exceptional and the grounds are... More

We have stayed here numerous times over the past 8 years and Ric and Rob are probably the best resort owners we've met. The place is gorgeous and well maintained. The pool area is spotless and continuously cleaned as is the Hot Tub. Continental breakfast is OK considering the limitations they are given. The other guests are always so friendly... More

The owners are super friendly reminds me more of a bed and breakfast with personalized attention. Great place to relax and soak in the sun. Resort is super clean and well maintained. Location is great. I've stayed at many resorts in Palm Springs and this has to be one of the best.
