A friend and I were in the area for Coachella. Though it was quite a distance from the event, we wanted something that would be a respite from the constant thump-thump of a three-day music festival in the desert. This place was just what we needed.
Though neither my travel companion nor I are prudes, we were a little surprised to find that this resort is clothing optional. We're big city gays and have seen it all, so it was no big deal. Just a bit surprised at first. If nudity offends you or makes you uncomfortable, this is probably not the place for you.
In a nutshell, here is what I liked:
Very comfortable beds.
Even though I would definitely recommend this place, one area I thought needed work. The Continental breakfast was a little lacking. Food was clearly store bought and was the same thing every day. It wasn't gross, I guess I just expected more from a gay resort. One other minor thing: The tech amenities in the room could be updated. I don't go on vacation to sit in the room and watch cable, but an iPod dock or something to be able to listen to music would be great.
All in all, a good place with very nice and attentive owners/staff. Totally give it a thumbs up.
