This was our first time visit to this resort, it was selected for us by a friend. We stayed there on weekdays (M-F). The initial reaction to entering the resort was wow, nice! The junior suite #4 was attractive, clean, very comfortable. Lots of space and storage. The AC was fantastic and much needed. The pool area was very relaxing,... More

We actually stayed here mid week thru weekend while still having to do some work (we are both self employed) As always, the staff was exceptional in meeting our needs and expectations and our time not working was the full relaxation we needed to regroup. The accommodations were clean as was the pool - crystal clear and clean. Thank you... More

The Hacienda at Warm Sands is a true gem of a resort. To say that the experience there is phenomenal would be an understatement. This was our first trip to the resort, and we were blown away. It is absolutely crystal clear that the resort has thought through their guests’ needs, and put a lot of effort and time into... More

My husband and I have stayed at the Hacienda once before and we were happy to return. This resort is the cleanest, prettiest, most nicely decorated, and best service of any gay hotel that we've ever stayed in. Their attention to detail is far superior than any other gay resort in the Palm Springs area. We look forward to returning... More

We were surprised other specialty resorts had surpassed Hacienda as 1 but we decided to take a chance. Don't be mislead, this is a top choice. Great staff+ we were upgraded, I realize not always possible but this is their approach when they can during low season. Great rooms, love the cleanliness and luxuries like L'occitane shampoos, creams Great patio,... More

We stayed at Hacienda for our second visit. We stayed 6 nights to get a longer relaxation experience as we were on a 6 week vacation from Australia. As before we had a wonderful stay. The staff attended to our every need and were extremely helpful with directions and advice. The breakfast was good and the lovely lunch service adds... More

We visit Palm Springs at least 3-4 times each year, and we always stay at the Hacienda.

I just completed what was probably my fifteenth-plus stay at The Hacienda. I began vacationing there even before the current owners, Jim and Maurice, were its proprietors. Over the course of the years, they have taken an already beautiful concept and introduced ongoing enhancements and improvements to make The Hacienda a first-rate luxury experience. Every surface is immaculate, the management... More

I spent the weekend at the Hacienda. All I can recall is lying on a pool raft and staring up into the sky - so totally relaxed. Jim and Maurice have created a perfect spot for anyone looking for a beautifully decorated, quiet, gay-friendly retreat. The staff is friendly and attentive without being overbearing. The Hacienda is the only place... More
