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.

The Palm Springs area is windy. Windmills are justifiably placed everywhere to harness its power. California should probably add 200x the number of windmills to power the whole state. This hotel is built with a courtyard in the middle to shield the swimmers from the wind. The hotel room has 2 beds and perhaps more floor space than usual, due to a relatively small desk and small clothing storage. Our bags and belongings littered the floor. Everything is white, the walls, the linens, the cheap plastic Euro-fashioned furniture. It seems to me that this hotel, like so many others, is stuck. The location is not close enough to the interstate to be a "motel" nor does it have adequate facilities to be a true "spa" complete with dining options. It really is not a nice-looking place. I do not know why every "hotel" i stayed at in California requires a $100-$300 deposit, but i am thankful this trip is over. Next time i will look at only family run "motels" that are cheaper, sometimes nicer, and lack the over-charged empty frills that seem to dominate the CA "hotel" landscape.

Definitely a hidden gem! We had the soleil suite with the private jacuzzi and it was the best. I haven't seen a unique set up like that anywhere else. The room and lines were super clean. The desk agent (I didn't get a chance to get her name) was very informative and delivered great customer service. We'll definitely be returning!

This is my go-to hotel in the desert. I know there are many places to stay in DHS but Aqua Soleil is THE spot. Try all the spots, which was my original plan, but when I went here, I never tried any other places because I am so happy and comfortable here . I know, it sounds over-the-top but this place is ALWAYS CLEAN and if something comes up the staff is there to help. The pool is clean and centrally located in the middle of the hotel so you can look out and see the pool, jacuzzi and mineral spring pool, surrounded by tall trimmed palms on all 4 corners of the inner area of the hotel. This place is across the street from a Grocery Outlet so you can make a store run if you need stuff. It is at the beginning of the strip in Desert Hot Springs, right off the main road so if you keep traveling down the main road, go get food/drinks/a few little shops - the do flip a U and go right back to the hotel. There are fridges in the rooms and a community microwave on the first floor outside and vending machines for sodas inside the main lobby. I have been coming here for the past 2+ years. They are constantly making improvements and keeping up with maintenance. There is also a small population of doves that chill on the railing 🤍 of the third floor.

Stayed here for one night but would have enjoyed a longer visit. Check in was easy. Thankfully we got a first-floor room, just steps from the courtyard pools. Two hot tubs to choose from and a good sized pool. Location is good--just a short drive from many restaurants and stores. Not super upscale but the price is right and I felt comfortable there. Mattress was a bit firm and lumpy as mentioned in another review. Overall, I would stay again!

I had an excellent time at this hotel. The staff were amazing and always super helpful. It’s in a great location, walking distance from multiple grocery stores, restaurants, etc. the decor is super cool and retro. They’re fully stocked on board games and other activities. Be sure to check out the movies by the pool if you have the chance!

Very Clean: The wifi in my was unstable. I was accommodated and allowed to use a space next to the check in counter to have my business meeting. I would like to give kudos to Vanessa, Chelsea, Irene , Natalia, and Tatiana. These women were warm, hospitable and professional. Yes I would definitely stay there again.

We had a chance to stay at the "Aqua Soleil Hotel & Mineral Spa" for an extended period during our studio construction in California. The "you never get a second chance to make a first impression" starts with the Front Desk & its personnel at any hotel and our reception did not disappoint as we were cheerfully greeted and a special request promptly granted. That sincere costumer service carried along for the next two weeks starting with the Front Desk Manager Paola - who was exceptional - as well as Angelica, Vanessa and the rest of the crew. Accommodations were clean & modern, housekeeping warm and extremely efficient. The Pool & Mineral Spa were meticulously maintained at the right temperature. The overall ambiance was one of quiet relaxation when not too many children were present. The adjoining restaurant is unfortunately closed for now as management is looking for a new lessor. Hopefully that will happen soon as restaurant choices in the area are somewhat limited. The only challenge encountered - and this was mentioned before by other guests - is the truly insufficient WIFI which renders online work nearly impossible. That could be easily corrected but doesn't quite deduct from our overall experience considering the favorable price/quality ratio. We will highly recommend.

Thank you for your review. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay. We will make sure that Vanessa, Angelica, Paola and the remainder of the team know that you appreciated their hospitality during your stay. We understand that the Wifi is truly difficult but rest assured that we are in the midst of a complete overhaul upgrade to our wifi. This should allow all of our guests to access and use the internet as expected in any hotel. We hope to have you visit us again soon.

I have stayed at this hotel several times before. I travel with a pet and always request the ground floor but have NEVER been accommodated with a ground floor room. NEVER, NOT ONCE. The hotel only has one ice machine on the 2nd floor and one ancient elevator which has an expired inspection certificate on it. The front desk staff is as dumb as they come. The hotel has a scandalous covid cleaning fee per day. I stayed for 2 nights and there WAS NOT ANY CLEANING SERVICE AT ALL so the covid fee is a total scam. The door lock system did not work at all on room 217
