A great spot for some quiet time, friendly staff and many long time returning customers make this a perfect spot in Warm Sands, a nice breakfast and coffee delivered to your room or poolside is the extra bonus!

Spent our 7 year anniversary there. Carson was sweet enough to help me surprise my husband with champagne. We had planned on doing so much in and around Palm Springs during our trip, but found ourselves just wanting to stay at the resort. Which meant a lot of time in the pool that resulted in a sunburn and mosquito bites. Jeremy was so kind to offer sunscreen and even brought some tea tree oil to room to help with the bites. I can not say enough about the staff and their welcoming vibe. Definitely planing another trip sooner than later!

This was our first time staying at the Desert Paradise resort and we were very impressed with the service, David and the team really do go the extra mile to look after their guests. We spent 6 nights at the resort in April, our stay began with a warm welcome, tour of the resort were everything about our room, breakfast and the resort facilities was explained. The pool area was beautiful and did feel like Paradise, the resort was full however we didn’t have any problems getting a sun bed, The breakfast was good with a little more choice than the usual continental Buffett and was served to you in your room or at a table around the pool. We will be returning to the Desert Paradise

The people (guests AND staff) and the swimming pool were the best! Breakfast was included - they offer delicious chewy bagels, among other good things. Jeff the owner is a nice guy - likeable. I would definitely recommend this resort hotel.

My room was very comfortable and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. They took care of my room and brought me breakfast every day. If I had questions, they answered them for me. If they couldn't answer it, they found out for me. My reservation wasn't here originally. The place I was supposed to stay was sold and my reservation canceled. I was given Desert Paradise as an option that they might have rooms available for the dates that had been canceled. I was glad I was able to get a reservation with them. I also added more days to my reservation. They were the right choice as a place to stay. I wish I had picked them from the start. Desert Paradise is small, cozy, friendly resort. You can get to know the other guests. I met so interesting and fun guys staying here. Thanks for a relaxing vacation!

We initially had reservations at La Dolce Vita, but it closed. We were rescued by the manager who worked there, Rich Levy. Rich didn’t leave us hanging with no place to stay on New Year’s Eve. He contacted us and recommended Desert Paradise. We were so glad he directed us to this resort. Desert Paradise is quiet and relaxing. The steam room, hot tub and dry sauna were so appreciated on this rare chilly moment in Palm Springs. We enjoyed their happy hour with a full bar too. Breakfast each morning is delivered to your room. Who could ask for more? We encountered 2 other couples who were booked at La Dolce Vita that were saved by Rich with the recommendation of Desert Paradise. Great resort to ring in the New Year!

We added two nights to our Palm Springs trip and stayed here to try it out. The rooms and outdoor spaces were clean and very well appointed with thoughtful and cute touches. The bed was comfortable and the shower was amazing. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. Didn't get a chance to try the pool, steam room or sauna but the hot tub was nice on a cold December night. (Yes, even in the desert.) Due to covid, the kitchen wasn't open but the staff took your order and brought it to your room or to an outdoor table. The only thing I'd change is to make the enitre property non-smoking (of any kind.) While the rooms and most of the property are non-smokng there's a smoking area right inside the gate closest to our car and is also near the kitchen, when it's in use. The place was busy but quiet. Not sure if that's normal or if it was holiday travel, but it was much nicer than other places that have more of a "party" vibe.

Beautiful grounds, sparking clean everywhere. Room was comfortable and attractive and the staff and guests were friendly and helpful. Also, great location. I walked to and from downtown Palm Springs as well as to Ralph's supermarket. About 30-40 minutes walking to downtown... maybe 15minutes to Ralphs. I didn't bother to rent a car!
