La Dolce Vita is a diamond in paradise. The location was perfect, and the views from the property were unbelievable. Mountains everywhere, outlined by the palm trees and greenery on the resort. Two wonderful pools, two hot tubs, friendly and attentive staff, and clean, comfortable room accommodations. Ken and Tim were wonderful hosts. We were beyond impressed and will be... More

My partner and I have just returned to Maine from Palm Springs where we found that La Dolce Vita Resort and Spa indeed exemplifies "The Sweet Life". The resort owners, Ken & Tim welcomed us warmly and with their personable, capable staff were attentive to making our stay a pleasant one. During our 5-day stay, joining a friend who had... More

Shared a two bedroom suite with two friends. Wonderfully appointed, tenderly cared for by exceptional staff. Owners greeted me when I arrived. A nice week of relaxation, exercise, socialization and fun.

My partner and I stayed for a long weekend. We travel often to Palm Springs and like to try different places. Although there is much to recommend La Dolce Vita, we will probably not return anytime soon. On the positive side, the owners and staff are extremely friendly, helpful, and responsive. The room was nice, clean, and comfortable. The mattress... More

Hello Gentlemen, Thank you for sharing your experience at La Dolce Vita. We have tried very hard not to change the original style of the Resort and the furniture is fairly new. Good comment however about the rugs. We will take your comment seriously and investigate the rugs in all our guest rooms and replace as needed. Regarding breakfast, we... More

We have been staying with Ken and Tim for years as the property is very inviting and relaxed. One of the nicest features is that there are two pools. Each time we have been there one pool is usually more social and the the other is more on the quiet side, giving us the option to cool off in either... More

Thank you for visiting us. We really do have a friendly crowd. Our buildings were built right after WWII. For our younger audience, that was a really big War. It was during Palm Springs' growth period when many of the Hollywood crowd decided to make the desert their playground. We have tried to retain that vibe, but, updating where necessary.... More

My boyfriend I spent the weekend with the Dolce Vita guys, and had such an awesome time. First, the place is even nicer than the photos show. It's actually quite big. The video on the website gives you great sense of it. Between the two pool, the afternoon happy hours and the super friendly staff, we made some long-term friends... More

I've been staying at La Dolce Vita Resort for years. I keep coming back because it feels like a home away from home now. Friendly staff, comfortable rooms, beautiful grounds and a great clientele make it all worth while.
