The Desert Riviera is delightful from the moment you step on the property. The owners and staff are very welcoming and friendly, and our every request was promptly met with good cheer. This is a small property with a big, heated pool that is lovely and peaceful for daytime relaxation. In the evening, guests can gather around the fire pit -- the perfect foil for chilly desert evenings -- and chat over a glass of wine. It's a nice way to connect with other guests if you want to. The rooms are extremely clean and tidy with the added bonus of heavenly, cloud-like pillows (not always the case with hotel beds!). There is a welcoming basket of snacks in the room, a complimentary coffee/tea self-serve area near the lobby, a nicely-stocked little library (both books and DVDs), and bicycles for those who want them. Overall, we had a very pleasant 3-night stay and would most definitely return.
