My partner and I had a pleasant and relaxing long weekend last week in Palm Springs staying at La Dolce Vita resort. The staffs are very accommodating and friendly. We had a 11pm checkin time and Ken sent us an email in advance with clear and precise instructions how to get into our room. Daily late afternoon cocktails provided where... 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

This is the second time I stayed at La Dolce Vita and it was once again a lovely and relaxing experience. Tim and Ken keep the place in tip top shape, and they and their staff make everyone feel right at home. It was fun to meet other guests during the week I was there, a diverse group of men... 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.

I originally stayed at La Dolce Vita resort about 8 years ago, shortly after it was purchased by the current owners. At the time, it was pristine....newly renovated, high quality rooms, a fantastic, unique happy hour everyday (which included the house specialty cocktail - a greyhound made with freshly squeezed grapefruit juice from the prolific tree located on site)...I thoroughly...

I first visited La Dolce Vita in August 2006 not long after current owners Ken and Tim had purchased the property. Since then I have made 24 visits to the resort. It is an oasis for men who want to relax in a clothing optional resort setting. Many guests are partners, although there are also many guys traveling on their... More

When we lived in Seattle, we discovered this friendly, laid back, lovingly kept up and nicely landscaped gay resort as an alternative to a traditional hotel or one of the many alleged all-male "resorts" that aren't nice and not a place to relax.

Had a very good experience in La Dolce Vita. The staff was always pleasant and helpful when we needed something, the place is very clean updated and quiet. Breakfast was good also. Excellent service for a reasonable price. Will definitely consider coming back.
