So our recent stay was our third at the Hacienda. We can't imagine staying anywhere else in Palm Springs. The level of service exceeds that of a Four Seasons or Taj Hotel. Yes, you will feel pampered by a great team of guys in beautiful, clean surroundings.

Property's Favorite Review
After staying here almost a dozen times over the past 6 years, I can easily say that The Hacienda is our all-time favorite vacation spot. Like most of their customer reviews indicate, service is top-notch! Cleanliness. Even before COVID-19, their cleaning and sanitation procedures were exceptional (e.g., dishes plastic-wrapped, extra pillows and blankets stored in a sealed bag, plush towels and fresh sheets supplied daily). Now, in the pandemic, I feel safer than ever because they go above and beyond what current COVID-19 laws require (e.g., lounge chairs disinfected after individual use; remote, ironing board, and yoga mats plastic-wrapped; hand sanitizing dispensers installed in each suite). Personalization. The team goes out of their way to make sure we always feel comfortable and welcomed. We absolutely love seeing our names embroidered into the pillows when we enter the bedroom every time we visit. The owners, Jim and Maurice, as well as the general manager, Steve, add a lot of the personal touches to our experience, of which we truly admire. We also really appreciate the personal communication in situations like giving us a heads-up for when there may be maintenance on-site or when visitors come to do yard-work. Prestige. One of the things about The Hacienda that differentiates itself from other high-end or luxury resorts is their quality products. Just like the employees they hire, the products/amenities they use/have are only the best (e.g., Apple TV, L’ Occitane soap/shampoo, Q-tip cotton swabs, Scope mouthwash, Arrowhead spring water, free laundry, an amazing breakfast selection, those delicious little chocolate dessert pastries that are butlered after lunch)

Everything about The Hacienda always exceeds expectations. From the caring staff who offer chilled towels and water during hot days by the pool to the well appointed and immaculately clean rooms, our recent stay was everything we could have hoped for. The Hacienda will always be a special place for us, and we can't wait to return again!

Book this trip as a solo trip. Accommodations are what you expect from a luxury high end hotel. I didn't need to ask for much as everything we provided. Room was spacious and with comfortable furniture. The bed feels like the one I have at home (good thing). For those who are hesitant about a clothing-optional resort, this is a place where you can be yourself. Other guest are here to relax and are respectful of one another. If you've never been sun bathing or swimming nude it's quite the experience! it's so relaxing and refreshing in the water! Also you don't have to worry about lounge chairs, there is enough for everyone, also the staff is quick to sanitize and replace the towels as soon as someone is done. Food was as expected, breakfast had an extensive menu for an expanded continental. Lunch was delicious and lovely to have by the pool. I would stay here again. I would remind anyone who is looking this is not a party resort. It is a low key relaxing oasis from the busy world. Also the clientele is mostly older 50+

My friend and I stayed here twice during the COVID pandemic. Our first stay was over Thanksgiving 2020 and we enjoyed it so much we went back in March specifically to spend a working vacation here. The Hacienda is so many levels above any other gay resort in PS in virtually all aspects - Room Quality/Cleanliness, Room Amenities, Attention to Detail, Beautiful Landscaped Grounds, Clean Pools, Luxurious Poolside Lounges - the list goes on. But, as others have said, what really sets this place apart is the wonderful staff and service and they provide. They go above and beyond to ensure that your stay is perfect. Warren and Steve accommodated our every request - we even asked them if we could have a lunch to take with us on our last day since we were leaving very early that morning, and they were more than happy to provide that for us the night before along with our breakfast so that we could get a good start on our day. Our first stay at Thanksgiving, we had planned on going to Joshua Tree for a day, but we were enjoying ourselves so much we decided to just stay at the resort the entire time. After enjoying the patio room on our first stay, we elected to stay in deluxe junior suite for our second in early 2021 since we would both be working a couple days. Again, the room exceeded our expectations and was outstanding in all aspects. Each room has its own wifi, so we never had any issues. This will be our room of choice for all future stays - and we won't stay anywhere else. This place is expensive compared to the other gay resorts in PS, yes, but you get far more than what you pay for, and with only 9 rooms, you get the personalized service you would expect (and more) for such a high price point. If you can swing it, go for it.
