“Stress Buster”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2012

Okay, after reading the reviews you should know that this place is great, but if you want to enjoy it, you better make a reservation soon - they're CLOSING DOWN after April! My husband and I live in Newport Beach (about a 2 hr drive) and went to Palm Desert to escape a cold rainy weekend and celebrate his brithday. When we arrived, it was warm, it was relaxing and it was beautiful. When we returned on Monday, we were sooo rested and relaxed. Do yourself a favor and take a few days off to de-stress. Weekdays are actually best as there's less people and traffic. Dale and Kathy are lovely hosts who will take good care of you. Give yourself alittle treat and go next month before they close. You deserve it : )

Room Tip: The rooms are all nicely furnished and unique. We had the smallest room and it was fine. The largest...

A big thank you to Dale and Cathy for a wonderful anniversary weekend.We stayed here for two nights and we received a exceptional welcome throughout our stay.
The rooms are lovely, with all the amenities that you would require, the linens are of a very high quality and the bed is scrumptious.
The location of the accommodation is excellent, its so easy to walk into the lovely town of Palm Desert where there are plenty of high quality shops and eateries. Dale and Cathy have a good knowledge of the area and are happy to make recommendations.......the ones they recommended to us which we tried were excellent ..... Tommy Bahamas bar and the 3rd Corner.
The pool area is exceptionally well maintained, just the place to relax, read a book and soak up a little bit of sunshine
......And at the end of a perfect day the guests get the opportunity to meet up and chat over a nice glass of wine.
All in all a perfect place to stay......Cathy and Dale, please, please, please don't stop!
Tres Palmas......hopefully, see you again soon.

We decided to try Tres Palmas based on the great Trip Advisor reviews and close proximity to relatives were were visiting in Palm Desert. We got so much more! Tres Palmas is less than a five minute walk from El Paseo featuring great shops and restaurants. And it was designed as a B&B from the beginning, which gave us plenty of privacy but also the opportunity to meet other guests as well. But what makes it uniquely exceptional is Dale and Kathy Adams; they are first-class hosts and made our stay an absolute pleasure -- within a day we felt more like we were visiting with good friends than staying in a hotel. For example, we were running late checking in, but Dale and Kathy "held" Happy Hour for us to make sure we would feel welcome. But that was nothing compared to the terrific breakfasts they prepared, including amazing "blood orange" juice we picked from the trees around the pool and hot tub and that Dale squeezed and served within minutes. The room, bed, bathroom and other amenities were great; we didn't try the pool but it's in a beautiful setting for taking a dip day or night. The Adams' have thought of everything: wine, appetizers, breakfast, snacks, videos, magazines, directions -- you will want for nothing during a stay at Tres Palmas. We can't imagine staying anywhere else in Palm Desert! Thanks Dale and Kathy!

We travel a lot. I'm usually bringing my wife along when I travel on business. This trip was "just for her" no business involved. We've done these trips before, she just never feels we do enough of them. As said, we travel a lot and usually stay at resorts. I saw the fantastic tripadvisor reviews and called Kathy to make our reservation. I agree with my wife, this is the best stay and time we've ever had. The location, a block or two off El Paseo Drive (stores and eating) and makes for great walks (which I do a lot of). Kathy and Dale....what can I say....they are not just great hosts, but made us feel like we were visiting friends. The room - Fantastic! The cocktail hour - Fantastic! The breakfasts - More than Fantastic! And of course we'll never be able to have fresh squeezed juice within 20 minutes of picking (that is until we come back). Our thanks to Kathy and Dale and thanks for the breakfast recipies you printed for us Kathy!

This has been a favorite getaway for us the last 4-5 years, however, the last two years have been exceptional having Dale and Kathy Adams as our hosts. They are truly a lovely couple and we felt as though we came in as guests but left having found special friends.
You will be spoiled from check-in to check-out. There isn't enough space to describe all the niceties we experienced in this beautiful home. It's a perfect location - one block from El Paseo. All four suites are wonderfully appointed and the beds are devine. Not to mention the culinary delights coming from the kitchen each morning. Forget the diet...you won't want to miss it.
We can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: All 4 suites are A++

We were only booked for one night but couldn’t resist extending for a second night. Kathy and Dale go out of their way to make guests feel pampered. No sooner had we checked in than it was time for Happy Hour, relaxing and chatting with other guests. The well-stocked bar and wine cellar were complemented by a tasty assortment of appetizers. One reason we chose Tres Palmas was for its seemingly secluded location yet only a two minute walk from the boutique shops and fine restaurants on El Paseo. Our room was tastefully decorated with a tranquil atmosphere and, of course, provided all the bath amenities one would expect from a superior B&B. The day begins with freshly squeezed juices and fruit, Dale’s puffy French toast or other creative delicacies. On our second day, we decided to hibernate around the grass and palm-lined pool, a mini Garden of Eden with its flowering plants and shrubs. It was a grand, self-indulgent respite…exactly what we needed, especially with the nuts and candies and soft drinks a few steps away in the house. Kathy and Dale take a personal interest in each guest and are knowledgeable about nearby restaurants and other places to visit. It is obvious that they enjoy their roles as hosts, and we look forward to seeing them again at Tres Palmas.
