I've checked out many gay resorts… this hits the mark… not too big, not too small. High level of comfort and amenities for the price. Quite and very clean, good mix of guests and staff couldn't of been nicer. Willan personally made sure I was settled in and answered all my questions… he even hosted the Friday cocktail party for...

We went to Escape with our friends from Pasadena who had stayed there before and raved about it. What a super place to unwind after a long flight from Heathrow to LAX. The staff were kind and helpful, the place was kept spotless. A special thank you to William who took great care of us all. Great rooms, great pool... More

My third visit to Escape this year, and once again I am reminded why I keep coming back. This time, we had friends visiting from the UK joining us, and the opportunity to relax by and in the pool right after their arrival from a long tip was very welcome. We had two nights at the resort, and spent pretty... More

My partner and I are repeat customers of Escape, a fine resort in the desert. The location is ideal and the views from the pool and surrounding areas are picture perfect - beautiful view of the mountains. The rooms are very clean and comfortable, the grounds are nicely kept. Continental breakfast is very good and a nice way to start... More
