It’s a good place for 2-3 nights. The food is good. Spa treatment are pretty decent. You could use soaking tubs all day long and walk in your robe the whole day. Tubs could be reserved and water temperature is adjusted per your request. I went with my daughter for 3 nights and enjoyed it very much.

The grounds were clean and well kept. Our room was simple, AC kept up great. Most of the time it felt like the resort was to ourselves. The food was fantastic! SO good to unplug and just simply enjoy.

A girlfriend recommended TBP to me as I was looking for a solo retreat experience in Southern California as a gift to myself for my birthday. If you’re looking for a solo trip to relax, rejuvenate, sit in meditation, reflect, be one with nature, this is absolutely the place for it. I stayed in the Desert section of the property & it was 5 minute short walk to the main area, i.e. front desk, the pool, some of the baths, class, therapy rooms, restaurant, etc. Along the path you can say hi to the ducks & turtles chilling at the Pond. I had an amazing time doing yoga & meditation here. It was one of those places that I wanted to commit to memory so I can mentally take myself back in the future. The room is a good size for one or for a couple. My only wish was a coffee machine inside the room although they offered free coffee in the main area in the morning. They provide robes & I loved that mostly everyone just walked around in these all day, even in the restaurant. So no need to pack much, just bring your beautiful soul, SPF & multiple bathing suits or board shorts. Beyond the space, the staff were all so kind, helpful & attentive as soon as I arrived. I felt nothing but safe here. A kind man, Ezekiel led me to my parking area & showed me to my room after I checked in. I actually had an embarrassing incident where my safety bracelet went off & accidentally alerted all my friends & family. So while I was floating around in the Grotto, reading in their Cool Pool, it wasn’t until I was laying out soaking up the sun, when I realized my loved ones were frantically searching for me. They ended up calling the hotel looking for me. The next thing you know I see Ezekiel and Chryse who came to find me at the pool! I was so embarrassed. lol. But it didn’t stop there, they ended up calling back all my peeps to tell them they found me & I was safe. Thank you TBP team for prioritizing guest safety & watching out for me. 🙏🏼 If you’re going there on the weekend, I recommend taking some of their classes! I did pilates and a sound bath in the Yoga Dome. Along with other visitors, we also had a chance to receive our Angel Messages and Tarot readings from some talented teachers and JUST. WOW. Monumental experience at TBP for sure. Oh… and all the above isn’t even the star of the show!!! Did I mention stargazing and meditating in the mineral baths? The water was more than magical and it was SO nourishing. Saturday night and Sunday morning was busy, but Sunday evening and Monday morning were so quiet and tranquil. Absolutely amazing and I cannot wait to come back. You literally do not need to be anywhere else once you’re on the property. Since my splurge had a budget, I did not get to pamper myself with a spa treatment (it was either 2 nights stay or 1 night stay w/ a treatment and I chose the former) so I can’t comment on it. I can only imagine how a spa treatment can enhance my experience there. Also knowing the restaurant is a bit pricey prior to going, I only planned one dinner there (absolutely delish although I do feel it was a tad overpriced.) I packed some fruits and snacks for the other days/meals. I think next time I may even bring my own juice cleanse there! TBP, I am adding this place as another experience that was truly life-changing for me. It awakened and nourished my soul in ways I cannot even describe. I cannot wait to visit again. Thank you. And to all the staff, thank you for making me feel special, safe, and for making my birthday trip so memorable. Shout outs to: Ezekiel, Chryse, Pablo at the bar, Tai at Twine for my coffee, and whoever was texting me answering my questions while I was at TBP. lol. Also, Donna and Steven for your spiritual messages and guidance. Thank you all.

A month later and my partner and I still think about our awesome weekend stay at TBP. It was the perfect amount of doing nothing but soaking under a shady, natural canopy of palm trees. We went in July, and while we expected it to be hot, the nights were surprisingly comfortable. Ok so the restaurant was expensive but the food was well done so it was worth it to eat on-site instead of hitting up the Del Taco a block away. The barista at the cafe was friendly and chatty. Actually every employee I encountered was very friendly and helpful. We appreciated that there were optional activities. We did morning yoga (with an excellent teacher who drove in from Pasadena?!). I didn’t do the indigo dyeing class only because it’s something I already know how to do. Sadly we couldn’t decide between a massage or facial from the spa and ultimately took a nap instead. We’ll try the spa services next time. Most communication with hotel staff was done through text. Maybe it’s a generational thing but it was super convenient, loved it. The room was clean, the grounds were well maintained. The soaking tubs were also in perfect shape and there was always some available when we wanted one. Finally, we saw no cucarachas that another reviewer complained about but we did see roadrunners, hummingbirds, rabbits, turtles and ducks. Next time we’ll try it during a cooler month, just for contrast. We’ll be back for sure.

The perfect getaway for some disconnected R&R, either as a couple or solo. The grounds are beautiful, the food is amazing, and the staff is so sweet. There are so many hot spring pools making it easy to have some privacy. It was the perfect three-day solo getaway for me.

I took advantage of the workcation special and stayed Sunday night through Wednesday morning. Everything was lovely from beginning to end. The staff is so friendly and happy to help with whatever you need. They have a great texting service so it’s super convenient to check in, check out and ask questions if you need anything. The property itself is magic. This is my 3rd visit to two bunch and they have really out done themselves. They added new pools and that’s where I spent most of my time. Coffee in the Hammock Garden, or by the duckpond watching the turtles and ducks. The pace is easy and slow and yes it was really hot (104-110) during my stay but the breeze came up throughout the day so as long as you find a shady spot by a pool you’re fine. The mineral water leaves your skin so fresh. The food is delicious and they make great Mezcal cocktails. You can be a little more social if you want but I was happy to be quiet and on my own meandering through different pools and places to be mellow on property. I will be back and thank you thank you to the amazing staff who made this such a wonderful visit!

My family, friends and I have been going to Two Bunch for close to 40 years. We have seen the design aesthetic go through various phases, from Al Capone, 1920’s Rock Suite Hideout to really cool, hippieish and organic to luxe, high-end spa. Through-out these various phases what drew us back again and again was the Lagoon with the minerals pools and the amazing experience we had every single time we stayed. However I feel it is important for potential visitors to know that there has been a serious decline in the property and that important services and standards are broken, and a glance at recent reviews tells me that things haven’t been fixed. I think it might be possible to go for a short period of time and have a good experience, especially if you have never been, because the mineral pools are so wonderful but I think the liabilities now far outweigh the pleasures. Here is what I see as some of the issues: -The property is being mismanaged -Certain portions of the property are in total disrepair -Training and service ethic are nonexistent -Portions of the property are infested -Cost-cutting measures seem to be dictating standards in every area So if you luck out and get a great room, spend most of your time in the mineral waters and aren’t have your service needs met, then you could have a lovely time. But it’s just as likely that there will be various issues wrong with your room, that you will find it very difficult getting basic service, that the food will be mediocre and that when you visit the mineral pools on your first night there, you will find cockroaches scurrying around on your walk down, and as you are relaxing in the shallow part of the pool that they will be running along your arm. You might even have one of the property maintenance men following you around and making inappropriate comments. And, as if the management were completely unaware of all of these issues, and were spending all their time reading their marketing materials instead of actually managing the property, you will be charged absolutely top dollar for the privilege of staying in this chaotic and stressful environment. Something is terribly wrong at this beautiful place that we loved going to and that had provided so many pleasurable and relaxing days and nights. Charming and elegant guest rooms, memorable spa treatments (Roman Tub Rejuvenator was my favorite), delicious meals, relaxing walks around the property, and the the star of the show, the Mineral Pools set in a tropical lagoon reminiscent of Hollywood’s Golden-age. That place is no more. I think that management and staff are triaging and they are able to get it together for periods of time but it’s not sustainable. My only hope is that this legendary place is bought by a hospitality company that has the necessary capital to invest, the industry expertise and professional standards to set the ship right, and the vision to bring back the dream. I’ll be watching.

I have been wanting to visit Two Bunch Palms for so long as I have many friends who love this place and I have been dreaming about those soaking tubs. I really, really wanted to love it, too. Before going, I read some reviews on here. Between that and feedback from friends, I felt like I had realistic expectations and had eyes wide open. (In retrospect - maybe too open?) I booked a stay for 3 nights, originally in a Grove King but then decided to splurge and upgrade to a Capone Jr Suite (#16) on arrival. The grounds were beautiful, the tubs are absolute heaven and since it's almost summer it wasn't too crowded. My first night was uneventful. However, on my second night I started to see cockroaches on the ground walking back to my room after dinner at the restaurant. I chalked it up to flowing water and lots of vegetation on the property but...then they started coming into my room. They were huge. It was late at night and I had noticed just two so decided I would take it up with management first thing in the morning. I found another large roach in my room when I woke up btw. I texted the front desk at 8:17am to explain my situation and was told they would inform management who would be in at 9:30am. It was my last full day on the property so I tried to make the most of it and was busy writing and soaking in the tubs when I suddenly realized it was 7pm. I texted my utter shock to the front desk that mgmt had never gotten back to me. The nice gentleman working the front desk informed me that management was now gone for the day and offered the equivalent of a text shrug. No words. When I got back to my room the last night, there were SO many cockroaches I was losing my mind. Did I mention how big they were? I was upset that no one from TBP had gotten back to me and attempted to address or solve the problem in any way and now it was nighttime, ugh. I have a lot of photos (roach glamor shots, if you will) and videos btw but I want to spare you. I went to the front desk and was told I was not the only room that was having an issue (there were two others that he knew of). I asked if they had any spray or any other solution to this problem!?!?! Nope, they did not. Eventually I was moved to a Springs Suite (#15) and at first glance the bedroom with light grey concrete floors and white walls looked free and clear but then I went into the bathroom, turned on the lights and the roaches were having their version of Studio 54. It was now close to 11pm. I considered driving home but was so tired and didn't think it was safe to drive almost 4 hours in the middle of the night. I closed the bathroom door and prayed they would stay in there. The next morning at checkout I spoke to one of the managers who said he was already aware of my issue. He mentioned hearing about it the previous day??! (no explanation as to why no one got back to me). He was apologetic and offered to comp me one night. I replied that he needed to comp the two nights that had issues and he did so without pushback. I'm grateful for that. I really need to put this property on blast and not just because this issue happened - but because they handled it so poorly (minus refunding). 1. If certain rooms are having a massive issue - you have no business assigning guests to them. The manager said that maintenance was at a loss as to how to address it but I mentioned that for starters - room #16's door has a 1/2 inch gap under it so it was easy for them to get in (there were a lot loitering right outside my room door). 2. Also, if you have a known issue - how do you not have any way of properly addressing it? I wasn't the first or only guest with this issue (I'm shocked no other reviews are up yet mentioning this) and the front desk literally threw their hands up helpless. 3. Lastly, I found it really upsetting that I texted first thing in the morning about ROACHES in a room that costs around $500/night and management just...ignored it. I really want to be as transparent as possible because even though I got refunded 2 out of the 3 nights I really wouldn't wish this experience on anyone else. I now need a vacation from this vacation. If you've made it this far, thanks for reading. TL;DR ROACHES IN ROOMS and management does not care. ✌️

Two Bunch Palms is a really special place if you are looking for a weekend away to unwind and relax. The tubs are magical and we love the vibe around the grotto and new area. We've stayed in various room types over the years - each a bit different but all very nice. The restaurant provides healthy-focused food and is very good. Spa treatments in the new studios are excellent. Such a great escape from the city!
