This is a well maintained albeit dowdy and tired gay men’s resort that caters to older guys, especially Canadians in the spring fleeing winter. (They offer special plans for extended stays.) Disregard the website that portrays this as a happening place for randy young muscle boys. It is not. The owner couple is conscientious and the vibe is generally quiet... More

I wanted a place where it wasn't going to be too cruisey, where I can relax naked by the pool, and most of all a place that had personality. And this place is it. I arrived a little early, but the owner was nice about letting me check in before 4pm. He showed me around the property, the turtles, the... More

Had a great stay recently-my second this year- felt at home and pampered by the owners and staff. Comfortable, cozy and warm hospitality extended to all. Looking forward to the next visit. The pet friendly option is very convenient for those of us who have a dog-and we took advantage of it.

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

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
