Thumbs Up and Must Visit is the bottom line with my Saguaro Hotel Palm Springs review. Our choice of Palm Springs/Saguaro was based on weather, direct flight, same time zone, outdoor living, unique tasty dining, comfort and relaxation. My husband and I arrived at the Saguaro Palm Springs Easter Long Weekend on April 6th and stayed for 4 nights. The hotel is centrally located a mere 10 minute drive from the airport, 10 minutes from the Palm Springs Strip and 15 minutes to the Palm Desert Aquatic Centre. The Saguaro check-in was efficient and polite and the front desk were very obliging when requesting a 3rd floor room facing the pool with a king sized bed . First let me say that the hotel bed was extremely comfy with great linens and the room very quiet thus providing the best sleeps in months. The air conditioning performed superbly in the 95 degree heat. We love outdoor pool/patios and these facilities were top notch. We spent 2 afternoons around the pool embracing the toasty weather, lounging on the chaise recliners, doing a few laps, lunching on great burgers and swilling a few pops and margaritas from the patio cantina. On Saturday the hotel formed part of the 23rd Annual White Extravaganza around the pool where some 800 sun-worshippers partied. Recognizing we were there for a little R & R, the GM arranged for us to spend the day at a nearby hotel featuring 3 exclusive pools. This gesture by the GM was incredibly thoughtful albeit we did manage to get back early to take in the festivities. We embrace good food and drinks in warm and friendly atmosphere and the Iron Chef Spanish “Tinto” and the Tequila/Taco “El Jefe” restaurants were both exceptional. My husband also managed to hit the Palm Desert Aquatic Centre on 3 mornings for a more serious swim in the new 50 meter pool although the hotel pool is very adequate at 22 meters in length. See you back at the Saguaro soon.
