We stayed here for three days over my partner's birthday weekend. To say this is a luxury property is an understatement. It is the ultimate in luxury for the gay man. The hotel consists of 10 suites, 2 pools and a hot tub. Breakfast is delightful each morning and lunch is spectacular--delivered to your room or to the pool, wherever... More

A great place to stay. The hosts and staff are primo and really friendly and professional. My only obeservation for improvement would be if there are two staying in a room to have two apples instead of one in the welcome basket and have coffe capsules replenished daily for early risers that plan to head out before breakfast if they...

Easily the best of the gay and clothing optional resorts...extra-clean, well-managed, and absolute zero "creep factor". The rooms are spotless (housekeeping service daily/as requested) and beautifully decorated. The pools and grounds are immaculate right down to the smallest detail. The staff are friendly and truly go out of their way to ensure that your stay is a pleasant one. There's... More

This has to be the best resort in the Warm Sands area of Palm Springs, if not the whole of Palm Springs. But, it comes at a cost. If you want luxury, you have to pay for it and our time there was well worth the money. The breakfasts are fantastic and the lunches (I don't think any other resort... More

Maurice, Jim, and the Hacienda guys did it again. Thanks for the wonderful Thanksgiving weekend vacation and the hospitality, warm and friendly environment, and great memories. The service is superb, the accommodations outstanding, and the exquisite amenities. We definitely made new friends and enjoyed many hours of conversation and sun in and around the pool. Thanks for the heated pools... More

We have stayed at the Hacienda many times over the years. Each time it is a great play to stay. I don't like large or "party" places. This is quiet with outstanding views of the mountains. The rooms are very well outfitted with creature comforts.

We made our first trip to Palm Springs and stayed at the Hacienda at the suggestion of a friend. The experience exceeded our expectations! The property is small and yet sophisticated, well maintained, and our room was spacious and well furnished. The layout is inviting to interract with other guests. But the best part of the experience, by far, was... More

Yet again, Jim, Maurice and the other Hacienda boys made our vacation a superb experience. From a warm welcome, pampered service and spotless upscale accommodation you cannot fail to be impressed. For those who have stayed in gay resorts in Palm Springs before this is a low key resort, I would say exclusive - only 10 suites and therefore something... More

The Hacienda is an immaculately maintained and managed high-end boutique hotel which is well located in Warm Sands, Palm Springs, within walking distance of the town. The owners have not missed out on any convenience, and have taken all your needs into consideration. Literally! If you have forgotten your razor, your toothbrush, or even a loofah for that matter, fear... More
