We were scrambling to find a place to stay after the Indian Wells Tennis Tournament canceled. I saw one room left at the #1 rated boutique hotel in Palm Springs so I jumped on it. We were not disappointed! A small well run hotel, hidden by a large hedge. When you enter the property you are welcomed by a nice pool surrounded by comfortable new lounge chairs and lush landscaping. The first thing I noticed was how friendly and accommodating the staff were, a smile and a tour of the property and a cold beer were provided. They have a grilling area with 3 grills and a pizza oven, a full kitchen with spices and other condiments that are for use by guests. A secluded hot tub and a hammock. The rooms themselves were comfortable and clean with a fun colorful decor. A couple of fire pits are lit at night and provides a nice gathering area for a drink and a chat. I am not surprised that they have a 70% return occupancy rate. Like I mentioned before, the staff is what makes the Desert Riviera stand out, from the Manager, front office people to the house keepers, they made us feel welcome and valued. Thank you again for the hospitality and a lovely stay.

Hotel's Favorite
Chose to stay here for three nights while attending a family wedding locally. What a find! Everywhere absolutely spotless and staff so welcoming and helpful. Staff go out of their way to make the place welcoming. Help yourself breakfast and comfortable seating around the pool. In the evenings tea lights are lit and placed around the pool area. Lovely place to sit day or night. Would highly recommend.

After 3 prior visits, our friends insisted we join them at Dessert Riviera this spring for a completely unique experience. Our expectations were exceeded in every way. We had a thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing vacation in a serene courtyard with a heated pool, hot tub, barbeque, fire pits, popcorn machine, snacks, drinks, and all the equipment and supplies we could ever want, nestled in a lush setting. But what set Dessert Riviera apart was Misty, Ashley, Steve, and all their support people who genuinely cared that we had a good time and that all our vacation needs were met. Thanks to everyone for a truly relaxing time. We already have our reservation for next year.

They are quite simply the best at what they do and we thank them again for allowing us to make the Desert Riviera our 'home away from home' even if just for a short time. Until next time........We thank you for all your kindness.

We’ve been to a lot of hotels but this one stands out as extra special. Built in the 50s and very nicely maintained. Even though their facilities are absolutely wonderful with a 92°F pool which feels warm like bathwater their best asset is their people. Misty Ashley and Steven go out of their way to make sure all your needs are met. Also the many returning patrons are friendly and helpful and very easy to talk to. We would go back in a heartbeat however it’s very popular and you have to book well in advance. Thank you to Misty Ashley and Steven for the excellent service you provided.
