“A five for friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014 via mobile

Thanks to Moe and staff for a great stay at WSV. Palm Springs can be such a drag for a last minute trip, with many men's resorts fully booked or requiring three day stays, but WSV turned out to be a gem. Right in the heart of the action, Warm Sands is immaculate and inviting, in the style of older Palm Springs Spanish. The rooms were bright and large with open beam ceilings, simple furniture, and refigerator. The pool and grounds well maintained with a smoother ambiance than its neighbors. This is not the slick choice of Century or the party vibe of All Worlds, but a welcome relaxed getaway among men. The clientelle ranged younger to more mature, twinkier to bearish both. The stucco buildings and older fixtures are dated, yes, and breakfast is simple, but the relaxation factor and friendly, accommodating staff makes this pace a win.

The warm reception,a great room, and the rest of the next five days was the best...in a long time! Loved the pool! Great location with great neighbors and the $7.50 DUI not cab to town is perfect. We reserved a 4 day stay and took a 5th after we enjoyed our first day !cheers!

Usually I stay at budget motels with a number in their name but a friend recommended Warm Sands Villas because he had stayed there before. I showed up on February 12th without a reservation. The resort was not full though and Mo, the owner, showed me around. I paid a little more than my budget motel but was very pleased with the room and bath (I got the basic room). I slept very well- apparently there was a new and very comfortable mattress. I rated the room décor and bedding as superior. Big flat panel TV on the wall had every cable channel I could want. This is a clothing optional men's resort but I found it very low key. Some friendly guys from Chicago were enjoying the pool. I met some Argentinians at breakfast [excellent breakfast for me: cereal, coffee and Danish]. I would stay here again for sure.

I have stayed here many times over the years. I really think Warm Sands Villas is the staple of the area.
It was sold a year ago or so. The new owner Mo,is really trying making a lot of upgrades to the property.
The torches next to the pool are back on!!! as well as the music!!.
Pool is around 88 degrees.
Really fun place to stay!!
If you decide to stay at Warm Sands? and feel that you have a idea to make it a bit more enjoyable.
Let Mo know, he really want's to make your stay more enjoyable

I have stayed at the Warm Sands Villas many times before. I didn't know what to expect with the change of ownership, but Mo was the perfect host. I got away later than expected and he graciously accommodated my late arrival. The place is spotless and very comfortable. I look forward to staying here again soon.

Enjoyed my stay at Warm Sands Villas immensely. Lived in Palm Springs and visit often. Under new ownership and still as friendly, clean, well kept and courteous as I remember it to be. Excellent location, accommodating hosts, excellent rates and an exceptional overall experience. Would never look for another place to stay again...and I have stayed in quite a few of them. Don't hesitate to book here.

Room Tip: for the slight additional cost it's worth staying in a room with a kitchen.

This is our second visit to Warm Sands, the first under the new management. We received a very cordial welcome. The room with both fireplace and kitchen was comfortable and clean. Mo went out of his way to be helpful. The other staff were quiet and professional in their work. There are convenient walks along the river bank for afternoon exercise and the location is good for walking into the center of town.

New Years Eve a friend arrived in PS unexpectedly. Again Mo went out of his way to find a room for this unexpected guest..
