“Expectations of a "First Class Resort"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

Expectations can paralyze anything, especially a vacation. I have been fortunate in life to have traveled the world and experienced many types of accomadations. Many of those claim "first class". I have paid over a $1000. per night (which is not very much by first class standards), I have enjoyed cruise ship travel with Olivia in a first class room and I have stayed in little cottages far away from anything, including electricity. Queen of Hearts is not the Hilton, it is not a commercial business that decieds what music plays in the lobby, what time your "muffin and coffee" breakfast is served. Pool hours are not stringent and respect for those around you are the guidelines expected. This is special place where the owner has placed your freedom, privacy and your options at the top of her list. It doesnt matter if your pocket book (or mood) restricts you to hot dogs by the pool, a proffessional private chef who will prepare and serve your meal in your room, or a night out transported by horse and carriage. At the Queen of Hearts Michelle makes anything and everything possible. She keeps the grounds and rooms immaculate and takes her business to heart, she is the Queen of Hearts. I have enjoyed nights with lots of poolside company, shared cocktails and great music. I have also enjoyed quiet nights poolside with my partner grilling steaks and watching a movie while relaxing in the pool.
Come to the Queen of Hearts, put your expectations aside, come to be with the one you love or to relax for a much needed vacation. The Queen of Hearts, meaning Michelle, will serve you and provide the optioins you need to make this a vacation of a lifetime and a place your heart and spirit longs to return.
Enjoy! You deserve it!

we spent our 27th anniversary Queen of Hearts & I cant say enough great things about it
Its in a perfect location ( off the main road) 2 miles from the fruit loop ( gay clubs & restaurants)
short trip to the tram & living desert .

The Host is the best & the mountain views are just awesome . We stayed in room # 4 which had a full kitchen big living room & bed. Plus a enclosed patio. The pool area has a stereo ( we played our favorite tunes) a Big TV & a mist system around the pool area & more A BBQ / bar .
We felt so comfortable it was amazing .

We have celebrated many special occasions at the Queen of Hearts and it is absolutely our favorite place for a quick weekend getaway. Michelle is always gracious and continues to exceed our expectations! The rooms are clean, comfortable and cozy. Every room has a patio and they are within steps of the beautiful pool. The resort is meticulously maintained and the mountain view is amazing! BBQ, bicycles, music at the pool and fabulous massage therapists available to come to your room....we love it! We recently celebrated our anniversary and it was perfectly perfect....greeted by a sign over our door and a surprise cake waiting in our refrigerator. Michelle's kind hospitality keeps us coming back again and again and again!!!

We just returned from a 3-night stay. Quiet, clean, peaceful, friendly, nice clientelle, with a beautiful view. Walking through the front gate, you instantly know you are in a private oasis where your comfort/convenience is uppermost in your hostess's mind. Fully-equipped kitchen made life easier and saved us money on eating out constantly. Michelle suggested places to go, eat, etc. and all her recommendations were on target. Nice touches such as poolside music (and iPod station if you want your own), large sceen TV with movie selection, white lights in trees at night, bikes, pool floats, microwave, beautiful gardens. Fresh fruit growing in the trees - made fresh-squeezed mimosas each morning. Highly recommend, and we will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Corner rooms are slightly more private. Stayed in room 4 - lovely, and the owner showed us Room 8, w...

This is an excellent place to stay. Very quiet, comfortable, clean and private resort. Great for any special occasions or just a weekend get away. Staff is very courteous and ocomidating. Owner makes you stay feel more then home. Walking distance to some shops and food places and they have bike rentals in case u want to go further. Staff will even make restaurant reservations at a great steak house and u can even get a private balcony. This is the perfect getaway. I will come back and recommend it to anyone! I give this place 5 stars!!

We just returned from our first trip to Palm Springs and stayed at the Queen of Hearts. Michelle did a great job of taking care of us. She supplied us with what we wanted for breakfast and made sure we had anything else we needed. Also she suggested places to eat and things to do.
Queen of Hearts is a very charming and quite resort.
I loved just sitting out by the pool in the morning drinking my coffee and just looking at the beautiful mountains and hearing the birds sing.
We will be returning again I am sure before the end of the year.
