Cute room. Had everything we needed. The staff is great. Very attentive. Never hurried or bothered by any requests. The hotel's little diner is adorable and has really good food served by some of the nicest staff I've met ever. The mineral baths are great. And I highly, highly recommend the facials!!!

This is the fifth time that we have stayed at Aqua Soleil. Everything was neat and clean. The staff was super friendly, the service was timely and efficient and this time we ate breakfast every day at the hotel. The food was great. Some of the best breakfasts that we have ever had.

My husband I stayed here for our anniversary. 5/5/17 - 5/7/17. We love the Palm Springs area. We actually found this place a few years ago and it looked great so we decided to try it this time around. We were sadly disappointed. The rooms definitely were not as they seemed on line. The hotel itself was bland and outdated....

We were hoping for a nice, quiet soak in the mineral pools, but the pools were loaded with both noisy kids and chlorine. There's an enclosed soaking pool, and not only doesn't it look like the website pictures, the enclosure keeps the chlorine smell in. The sliding doors wouldn't slide and looked like they hadn't been cleaned in weeks. Our...

Hi, Lynda. Thank you for your review. We are very sorry to hear that some things were not up to your expectation during your stay. We have started the process of replacing the sliding doors of the gazebo surrounding the in-door soak pool.

This Hotel is soo cute and the location is truly amazing. Desert Hot Springs is such a beautiful city and truly an escape from the Nyc city life. Rooms are a bit small, but do not think luxury. But very comfy. The beds are soo comfortable. There were no irons in the rooms. I really enjoyed the mineral pools. I...

The staff was very friendly and the little cafe in the bottom was extremely delicious, but the stay itself was not exactly the best. The first night we got there we walked into a room that not only looked nothing like the pictures but also had dirty sheets. It was obvious the beds were not clean and did not even...

Hi, Sarah. Thank you for your review. We are so sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay. We serviced the sand filter associated with our larger pool and unfortunately that can, at times, create a bit of cloudy appearance to the pool water for a day or so. We do take special care to keep our pool...

This recently renovated motel has clean, small rooms that are perfectly fine but not luxurious. No minibar, just a few TV stations. Front lobby desk looked like it could use some refurbishing and some of the common areas are a little on the shabby side. The main pool was nice, but it's a bare-bones operation... no cocktails or snacks poolside....

Got a decent deal of $133 a night for a two bed queen. Book through their website and you get a little discount. Building is a bit dated and off main road. Entrance could have been more welcoming. Pools were cute and warm. Only one hot tub mineral water which is a bit deciding but still super relaxing. They have...

We spent two nights here and we enjoyed it. The rooms a nicely decorated, but not very clean. We stayed in a room close to the pool and it was just perfect. We spent the nights in the hot tub, my little son really liked it!

Desert Hot Springs is just minutes away from Palm Springs with much more reasonable prices. We had a large suite with a huge private mineral water spa. A room like this would cost two to three times more in Palm Springs. The room is minimalist in design, but clean and comfortable. Had great massages from Louise and Susan at the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in the foothills of the San Bernardino Mountains and at the edge of Joshua Tree National Park is the city of Desert Hot Springs, California, where you will find one of the best kept spa hotel secrets called the Aqua Soleil Hotel and Mineral Water Spa. Our hotel features three gleaming pools filled with hot mineral water drawn from the Desert Hot Springs aquifer deep beneath the earth's surface by our onsite well. For centuries this odorless and mineral-rich water is believed to hold curative powers. We offer a variety of well-appointed room types to fit your needs, all of which have been recently remodeled. Our Single Queen and King rooms afford comfortable accommodations with unique and radiant color schemes. Our Double Queen rooms offer a second queen-sized bed and are ideal for guests needing additional space. Our Soleil Suites feature a huge 6x10' private, jetted mineral water pool inside of the suite. Our full-service spa, The Spa at Soleil, offers a number of relaxing and rejuvenating body treatments, facials and massages. The Aqua Soleil Hotel and Mineral Water Spa is the ideal getaway spot for those looking for a serene and relaxing atmosphere at an affordable price. Some might say we offer a taste of Palm Springs, just 15 minutes away, without the Palm Springs prices. ... more   less
