My wife and I were looking for a peaceful trip away from our normal work routine and couldn't be more happy with our stay at the Desert Riviera. The room was clean, cool and welcoming. The staff was efficient, genuine and really ensured we had a great stay without being over attentive. Pool was amazing. Amenities were also modern with... More

The second we walked into Desert Rivieria we knew we were somewhere very special. This hotel is absolutely first class in every respect. The staff and owners went out of their way to make us really welcome. Unfortunately we only managed two nights but wished we had stayed much longer. We loved the chilled out atmosphere around the pool and... More

The Desert Riviera Palm Springs is perfect for couples. The service of the small staff was impeccable! From coordinating our late check-in, to offering custom tailored suggestions, as well as just making us feel completely free to do as much or as little as we wanted on our stay. The grounds themselves, while small are magical. The hotel has a... More

We have passed through Palm Springs many times and never thought to stop over, well this time we did for 5 nights and what a fantastic time we had. From the moment we stepped through the red gate we knew we had made the right choice. What a fantastic setting, an exquisitely planted tropical garden, magnificent seating areas around an... More

Apologies for the delay in writing review but struggling with the Trip Advisor App and had to wait until we got home. This is our 3rd visit to Desert Riviera, but first under the new management of Rick & Martha. Such kind people. We loved it before, but we really, really loved it this time. The staff Misty, Tracey and... More

Stayed here for 5 nights recently and our only regret is we did not stay longer, As so many reviews have commented, the staff is second to none. The owners and their team have a genuine interest in making sure everyone who stays there has a wonderful time. There were a number of repeat guests there when we stayed, some... More

After 10 days on the road coming down from San Francisco we were looking for a place to stretch legs and relax. I booked the hotel mainly because of the good rates and to directly tell the truth - everything said by the various travelers is absolutely true, from the attention and friendliness of the staff, the cleanness and attire...
