This was our return visit to the Desert Riviera and the only reason that the we returned to Palm Springs was to actually stay here rather than to come to Palm Springs. It is difficult to know where to start, I will start with the ‘normal’ comments when reviewing, immaculately clean both with regards to the room and the premises... More

This was our 2nd visit to this wonderful place and was just ,if not ,better than our 1st. More facilities have been added and the new kitchen is a great addition. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff who go out of their way to make sure all of your needs are catered for, booking trips into the desert,... More

We wanted peace and relaxation which is often hard to find nowadays given our society's decline in civility and corresponding increase in self-centeredness, especially regarding parents' unwillingness/inability to control their obnoxious children. Well, we finally found a place that solves that problem! The other guests all seemed to want the same thing too. They were quiet, friendly but everyone pretty... More

The property is beautiful, clean and every attention to detail is covered. The most amazing part is the friendly and helpful staff. It is in a great location. The pool and hot tub are great. In the evening the candles surrounding the pool are magical. We love the Desert Riviera!

We've been back to this hotel 4 times in the last year because we enjoy it so much but I don't usually review a hotel more than once. However, on our last visit I accidentally left my cell phone and Fitbit chargers in the room and they cheerfully and promptly located them and mailed them back to me. So, I... More

Wow! Wow! Wow! From the ice cold beer/wine that was offered on arrival to posting on the bits we had left behind, this was an amazing stay with some of the best customer service we've had. They really have thought of everything... The whole place is spotlessly clean and very well kept, with all room/suite doors opening out onto the... More

Quiet, relaxing, heavenly... My only hesitation in sharing the Desert Riviera's glory with the world is that I'd hate for it to become so well known that it would be impossible to stay there without a 2-year advance booking. But I owe it to the owner and manager of this property to give public kudos. I had originally booked a... More

The staff was incredibly attentive and the grounds are so relaxing. Just far enough outside of Palm Springs Downtown to be quiet but not obnoxiously far. We had room 9 which was beautiful, but for my wife who is a light sleeper, the proximity to the main road was a bit of a problem. The staff provided a rotating fan... More

So, it's a long way from Edinburgh, Scotland but we love California for holidays. We returned here for our 2nd visit to Palm Springs so that in itself should indicate how much we loved staying here first time around. All the other reviews detail how fab this little piece of heaven is. All I am going to say is -... More

My husband found the hotel via Trip Advisor- ranked #1 in Palm Springs. But only 10 rooms? Would we get a reservation? We did and we are so glad we did! All the great reviews are absolutely factual. The place is immaculate- the cleanest hotel I've seen in a long time. The grounds are BEAUTIFUL! Here I sit by the... More
