I have been going to Palm Springs for several years now. I look forward to my annual retreat from the noise and chaos of New York. The BEST part of my stay in PS is the El Mirasol Resort.
NEVER have I stayed at an inn/resort where I have felt so welcomed and comfortable. The owners, Bruce and Paul, couldn't be friendlier and more helpful. They welcome all of their patrons with a warm smile, and are very attentive to anyone's needs. They are always more than happy to suggest local restaurants or points of interest.
The grounds are BEAUTIFUL, with lush, well cared for landscaping. They have two great swimming pools with plenty of space to lay out in the sun. They also have a fairly private jacuzzi, which is great at night.
The facility is clothing optional, which makes it comfortable for all guests. You dont have to feel awkward if you choose, or not choose to disrobe. The mix of guests is a good one. The patrons come in all age ranges, but I would say the average age is around 35-45. I must say that the views are usually quite nice.
I love the peace and quiet there, since you dont ever have to be exposed to loud stereos, or party/techno music. This is a place to unwind, relax, and enjoy the sun and the mountain views. The grounds are quite secure, being totally surrounded by a stucco security wall, with beautiful bougainvillea hanging over the tops. A passcode is needed to open the gate, which is locked at all times.
Kudos to Bruce and Paul who have done a fine job in maintaining a resort which is tasteful, high class, and comfortable. It far surpasses most of the less desirable resorts in the Warm Sands area, which are more prone to be cruisy/party resorts. I prefer to stay at a place where I know the rooms are always clean, and if I stay for an extended period, the rooms with kitchenettes are always clean and quite convenient.
All in all, I would rate this place an A++, and I would suggest it to anyone without any hesitation whatsoever!
