The weekend of October 26 through the 28, 2012 was a destination party weekend for a very good friend of ours. His partner planned the entire weekend of festivities for family and friends, for his 40th Birthday celebration. We could not have had a better time. Andrew and Russell were so warm and attentive. The food for Friday evening cocktails and the subsequent dinner, on Saturday, was fantastic. Although there were almost 40 of us and most of the rooms surround the pool area, it felt very intimate. It was as if we had our own little hacienda. The location was close to downtown,Old Palm Springs. During the day, there were plenty of restaurants and shops to explore. However, most of us just chose to enjoy the pool and gorgeous weather.
After reading some previous reviews, I do agree that the rooms, while absolutely immaculate and beds very comfortable, could use a little more decor. I also agree that a little fridge could be used in each room, as well. Palm Springs is a warm/hot weather destination. The ability to keep cold drinks and water would be a nice addition. I also feel that a morning coffee bar by the pool area would be awesome, if the management did not want to put coffee makers in each room. While these are just suggestions, our experience as a large group of guests was fantastic and I would not hesitate to return. Since the pool is surrounded buy a safety gate and we had three children under five years old, Los Arboles is also excellent for families who would like to avoid bigger resorts in the area. Thanks Andrew and Russell for making our weekend so wonderful.

Thanks for the nice comments Ruby ... and I was delighted to hear that your group really enjoyed the weekend at Los Arboles. Decor touches are being done room by room and we are almost finished. Rick Vanocur (local Palm Springs lighting and interior design guy) has been helping us out at prices that will allow us to keep our rates competitive. And coffee makers will be in all rooms in the next couple days. We've got a handful of refrigerators and can place them in rooms on request but are looking in ways to get one in every room. Those 1937 designed rooms don't always make that convenient for us! Thanks again and we hope to see you back at Los Arboles soon.
