It's hard to imagine how but our just concluded one week visit to the Desert Riviera was the best yet! Judy, Tracy, Misty, Steve and the owners Rick and Martha were wonderful as usual as were the immaculately groomed grounds, crisp ironed on premises sheets on divine beds along with the numerous amenities. This was our third visit here since... More

Ok. How to begin. They saved my vacation after a really bad hotel cancelled my reservation. There's something to be said about the positive atmosphere of this place. From getting into the front desk I was thinking already how and when to book my next vacation here. Like without even staying there yet. Then, things only get better. Everybody here... More

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and wish we could have stayed longer. The rooms were comfortable, the grounds around the pool area were well-maintained and lovely. The staff was so very friendly and helpful when we had questions or wanted recommendations. We got to know a few of our fellow guests fairly well as this is a... More

This was our second stay at the Desert Riviera and like our first, extremely memorable! The friendly atmosphere and great staff are what brought us back two years later. They have done their best to upgrade the original rooms with kitchenettes and retro decor (there are some cosmetic issues), but the rooms are not the main attraction here. It is... More

Stayed one night on the fly and this place was so amazing and so accommodating. Truly like a co-op resort style. Anything you need, fully equipped kitchen and BBQ area, 24 hr pool. The manager Misty was the sweetest, most down to earth person. Gave us a free beer while we checked in and the room had FREE snacks and... More

My boyfriend and I only spent one night at the Desert Riviera, however I wish we could have stayed for a week. We had a wonderful time there from the minute we arrived to the minute we left. The staff was extremely helpful and nice, as were the other vacationers. There was a strong sense of community and family amongst... More

We last visited the Desert Riviera in summer 2009 and were keen to go back when we had chance from the UK. It's still as good as it was before! It's a small place with only 10 rooms but that makes it very friendly. All the other residents were very nice and welcoming and it feels like a nice small... More

My wife and I spent easter break here. It is amazing.Great location, fantastic amenities, and the staff goes out of their way to make us feel welcomed. Judy and Misty are great hostesses and are always cheery and helpful. We loved using the grills that the resort offers, take a trip up the road to Jensen's supermarket and pick up... More

Nice ambiance of this mini hotel, a perfect place to unwind. I stay here for 5 peaceful days. I was totally relaxed. The room was pleasant and well furnished. The bathroom was neat and clean and in order. The pool was the best and unforgettable place here, very refreshing and warm water, and the view was perfect. Lying down on... More
