“Best visit ever to La Quinta!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We went for five nights to celebrate my birthday. Our room was on the second level with a large balcony complete with a fireplace. We had a king size bed with a seating area, large shower and separate bathtub, and a refrigerator with ice maker.

Room Tip: Ask for a second floor room if you want a private patio. There truly are no bad rooms there and with...

Really just checking the Resort out for future use. The Old World Charm and Hospitality were overwhelming. Took photos of the lovely grounds and wanted to share. Made reservations for Adobe Grill. Will review.
Rating based on ambiance and Hospitality.

Just spent 4 nights here with my family (two girls 11 & 9). Our family has visited many times. It's an old property, but very clean, updated and sprawling. Love all the pools. Which means you never have to hang out in a big crowded, resort pool. Unless you want to - they have that too. So relaxing and peaceful. Wonderful staff that quickly take care of whatever you need. Excellent gym. Never ate at any of the restaurants, besides the coffee shop for a morning smoothie, bagel and yogurt parfait. Always a pleasure to visit this resort.

Since the very first time we visited the La Quinta Resort, we knew there could never be any other place we'd stay at but here !! Once you go, you'll be hooked. Small buildings with just a handful of rooms (casitas) per building surrounded by pristine gardens & pools everywhere ! It's the perfect place to really relax & be at peace with the mountains as a backdrop and star filled nights.

I have visited this property since 1986 and have never been disappointed. The grounds are lush and beautifully landscaped with flowers, orange, grapefruit and banana trees. Some of the property was built in 1926 and then their are the newer additions. The older casitas are charming with a lot of history but generally have only king beds. We had so much fun at night in the Fiesta square dancing to the live music and the children enjoyed themselves as well. The resort assigns a personal concierge and Alyssa was very helpful. Our room #961 had two queen beds and our family of four adults and two small children were very comfortable. Memorial Day weekend was busy but we expected that and we all had a great time.

Room Tip: Ask for a map and tell your concierge your preferences.

Our stay at La Quinta was for two short nights. We were hoping for a room adjacent to their many splash pools but they were all taken. They were able accommodate us with a top floor room, we hit the jack. It had a private large balcony with an outdoor fireplace and outdoor sectional, large enough to host a cocktail party. The room was also very nice and updated. It consisted of a king size bed, fireplace, small refrigerator and coffee station. Very comfortable, quiet and again, it seemed private. The nearest splash pool was just steps around the corner. The grounds are beautifully manicured. We were blessed with perfect weather during our stay. Our outdoor activities were ideal between golf and pool side lounging.

During your stay, make sure you stop by their Mexican restaurant, Adobe, and order up a Sangria. They serve three types and they all were excellent.

Dear Kelley A ,
I appreciate your taking the time to leave a review of La Quinta Resort and Club for other TripAdvisor readers. We've received an overwhelmingly positive response to the renovated patio of the Starlight Casitas, so I'm very glad to hear that you were able to enjoy the outdoor fireplace along with the perfect weather! Thank you for your recommendations, and we hope to have the privilege of welcoming you back to the resort again soon.

This is our 2nd time staying here at this property. We were here for a wedding & some relaxation with a large group of friends. Property is very well maintained, the mountains in the background are beautiful.

Food quality & service are very important to us and this place didn't disappoint. Room service food excellent. Onsite restaurant food also excellent. We were a little disappointed that our room didn't have a fireplace as they told us it would but were very fair about it and took care of our breakfast the first morning.

Food & drink prices are somewhat on the high side as expected for quality. You get what you pay for I suppose.

The resort is kid friendly so you will see kids running around but they do have an adult pool you can go hang out at…drinks are most def priced outrageous here but the bartender made a super tasty iced down fireball shot.

We wouldn't hesitate to go back.
