Top- notch boutique resort with a super-cool laid back attitude and an extraordinarily attentive staff. John- Michael sets the mood when you check in offering just about every available boutique service imaginable. "Here's my number. Contact me anytime." Really? Yes! The location is super- central. Breakfast and lunch provided. Lunch? Yes! The grounds could not be more tidy or spotless.... More

Usually a good group of mixed-type guys from all over the US and the world. Fun but not raunchy, with sparkling clean rooms and nice amenities. The staff was pleasant and easy and the free catered lunch is a great little perk!

My husband and I have visited Palm Springs several times in the past, trying a few different resorts. We fell in love with one in particular. As we looked to return, our chosen resort was booked solid, so we landed at Santiago and hoped for the best. Boy did we get it! From the minute you arrive, you feel welcomed... More

Two points if your amazing review that I'd like to highlight: 1. Anyone sensitive to noise should consider an upstairs room. This is a point we try to communicate as much as possible. Some people have no issues, but the few who do, we try to head off ahead of time. Always glad to see this tip passed along. 2.... More

This place was everything we were hoping it would be but were scared it wouldn't be. You hear so many horror stories of gay resorts in Palm Springs being seedy or trashy and this was exactly the opposite. These guys are running things on point and everything was absolutely fabulous. We stayed in a king suite upstairs and all of... More

It was our first time in Palm Springs and we couldn't have been more pleased with our choice. John-Michael, Bob, and the rest of the staff were gracious, welcoming and attentive. Breakfast, catered lunch, and 24/7 snacks from the Cantina were included. Large pool, hot tub, fire pit, hammocks, plenty of padded lounge chairs - what more could we have... More

Santiago has always been great for us, but it's gotten better lately. They have kicked up the service and made it so welcoming and comfortable. They are attentive and friendly, which makes you not want to leave. We had a great time with other guests and it is so peaceful within the grounds. We really had a fantastic stay, and... More

My friend and I had booked into another resort with a high rating, only to be so disappointed we left after one day, even though we paid for two. Our other choice was Santiago Resort. From the moment we arrived and met John-Michael, it was an excellent experience from arrival to leaving. Beautiful grounds, well kept and super clean. The... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A private, swimsuit-optional escape for gay men resting at the foot of the San Jacinto Mountains, Santiago is a place where the stillness and serenity of the desert infuse everything. Where the bubbling spa, rustling palms, and singing birds become your personal soundtrack. Where your only commute is the one from your room to the pool. And you look forward to it. Santiago's professional staff effortlessly provides attentive service while allowing you just the right degree of solitude. It's a combination that creates a tranquil atmosphere of casual luxury unmatched anywhere in the desert. So come step through our gate. Exhale. And smile. You made it.
