“What a wonderful place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

Lush gardens, mountain view, 2 pools, wonderful amenities. Everything was perfect here. I was here for 5 days, staying in one of the villas by the pool. Will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Villa 18 was ideal

El Mirasol is the place you want to stay in Palm Springs. Very peaceful resort where one can recharge from their busy life. Property is well kept, rooms are clean and the owners/staff are very helpful and friendly - what more does one need? When in Palm Springs, I always stay at El Mirasol, 2-3 times a year. My most recent trip to Palm Springs, I stayed 12 days at the hotel. Great place to unwind with friends.

Room Tip: Rooms with padio are great

Spent seven wonderful days here - this resort is very close to all attractions in the area, small shopping plaza is a couple of blocks away and lots of stores within a short drive.

Room was very clean, the bed nice and comfortable, and the private patio was an added bonus. My suite had a small kitchen with microwave and bar fridge.

The private grounds are very well maintained. Soft drinks are provided free of charge from a self-serve bar by the north pool (unheated), the south pool is heated and the hot tub is adjacent to it.

Wireless internet is free, as are movie rentals to play on the DVD players in the rooms.

I guess the best compliments come from the "regulars", some of whom have been returning to this resort year after year! I hope that I get a chance to return to Palm Springs; I know where I'll be staying!

Room Tip: They all seem to be good, however the bungalows have private patios.

I had a great relaxing vacation at El Mirasol. I good friend reccommended it and he wasn't wrong. The hosts Bruce and Paul are very sweet and friendly, but not overly chatty or instrusive. They were the perfect hosts content to let me lay by the pool with my books. The resort is very clean and well maintained. The steam room is a great feature. The other guests were all nice guys. From my experience if you want a cruisey Warm Sands resort, you should stay at a different place. I would defintely recommend this place and I will stay there again.

There's a lot to be said for consistency, and these folks have it in spades! I couldn't tell you how many times we've been to PS in the last 15-20 years, but generally once or twice annually. In the beginning, we were loyal to one property for five or six years. When it sold - we checked it out with the new owners, and ... well ... let's not go there :-) In any case - it was a good thing. We were not about to stop visiting PS because of one bad apple, and that visit forced us to look for something new. With so many choices, and equal numbers of good and bad reviews - we tried several. El Mirasol was in that mix and we loved it, but continued to explore options. If you plan to be a return visitor - you should be able to draw some comparisons to know what suits you best. After trying several other inns - we found ourselves saying: "Let's go back to El Mirasol." We've done that several times and just did it again!

In all of our visits to Palm Springs - we've only ended up at one absolute dump, but we were with friends, so it was survivable! (I won't name names as it has been renovated since, and I have no first-hand knowledge of what it's like now) The point is - overall - every place had good and bad points, and in the end; all were enjoyable. The thing with El Mirasol is - it's just, plain comfortable! The same way a cottage is.

Bruce and Paul have stayed true to themselves and to their guests. Their welcome is genuine, and that feeling never leaves. Their staff are equally accommodating, and the relatively new addition of the evening manager (Skip) to their team is definitely a feather in their cap. (Geeez Skip - sit down and put your feet up once in a while!!!) The property continues to look great where the style of garden and landscape is completely informal and stays away from the manicured look. (love that!) The accommodations vary is size and room type, but all are well maintained; as is everything else on this property. The location is excellent and for being so close to Ramon Rd. - shockingly quiet. One of the best things (for us) is that there is no "typical" guest. The men here are every man ... as it should be. Promises can't be made that you'll love it - we're all of different tastes, but one thing I can guarantee is that these guys will do what they can to see that you do!

Room Tip: Just call them ... they'll do what they can.
