“A wonderful resort to enhance your Holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014 via mobile

We stayed at the Hacienda in March, 2014 and we were very impressed with the cleanliness, the decor, the rooms and most certainly all the staff that makes this place a great resort. It is a top of the line resort and we would not hesitate to return. We were given an excellent service from the beginning of our stay until the very end. We have no hesitation to recommend this resort if you wish to enhance your holiday. Thank you to all the personnel that that have worked to make our Holiday most pleasant. Jean-Louis & George.

If you want a quiet place to stay with excellent accommodations and 5 star service The Hacienda is the place for you. You want for nothing, the clientele is professional, the food is simple and healthy. I've never been more depressed leaving a place then I have here. It was the most relaxing stay I have had in a very long time. Will be back next year for sure!

Room Tip: Every room is perfect so I wouldn't begin to suggest a particular one. There isn't a gym, bu...

This was our third trip to the Hacienda. It continues to delight us. The staff are incredibly friendly and accommodating, the rooms are luxurious, the small personal touches are too numerous to mention. Easy walking distance to downtown Palm Springs and it is located in an upscale, safe neighbourhood.


Breakfasts are perfect and the lunches are gourmet. We have stayed at clothing optional resorts in Key West and Fort Lauderdale and they don't even come close. You will never regret a stay at this property.

Stayed here for four nights with friends, couldn't fault facilities, staff extremely friendly they made it feel like home from home.
Massive rooms with all you need and super comfy beds.
The perfect place to chill out, and close enough to downtown to walk into for bars and restaurants.
Next time we find ourselves near Palm Springs we will be back to the hacienda.

I was first introduced to The Hacienda while with my partner back in 2003. Since then we have made The Hacienda our only real end destination every year when it comes to our only extended vacation time. The first two tiimes we stayed only about 3 days and came home depressed because we didn't spend enough time there. Now we spend 7-8 days and that still isn't enough at times. We both have demanding professional careers and leaving home (Boise, Idaho) for The Hacienda is the start of the relaxation therapy we need. The resort is surrounded by 8 foot high dense Ficus hedges and once you enter through the lush vine-covered entry gate, time seems to stand still. Jim Moje and Maurice Minno, Proprietors, and the incredible staff, Steve, Tom, Paul, and Luis pay attention to every detail for guest comforts. For us they have become our extended family. We again are looking forward to our 14th stay in October . The Hacienda continues to be our home away from home where time has no relevance, until it is time to leave.

Rather remarkable what these guys have created here. Attention to every detail, beautiful and incredibly peaceful. So many nice touches it's hard to list them all. And I'm sure there are some subtle ones that I didn't even notice. I have stayed in several gay-oriented hotels in Palm Springs, and I can't imagine staying anywhere but here.
I took what I believe is the smallest room, and it was plenty big. Probably as big as the suites at the Wynn or the Venetian in Vegas. The bathroom was fully updated and with high end fixtures. The only problem with this particular room is that it is right next to the laundry room, which seems to get going at around 7:00 a.m. Not sure if that was other guests (probably not) or the staff, but I'm on vacation and I'd like the choice to sleep in.
Otherwise not a single complaint.

Well this is the second time we stayed at The Hacienda. We went for the Int'l Bear Convergent but instead of staying at the Radisson we decide to stay at The Hacienda. To our surprise we found decorator pillows with our names printed on them on our bed, that was such a beautiful personal touch. After 6 hours of flying and 4 hours of drive because of traffic all we wanted was to jump on that bed. Steve and Robby are amazing but so are the rest of the workers they treat you with respect and the same time making you feel like a family. the owners Jim and Maurice are super nice too. The hacienda is classy and always a pleasurable experience.
