Accommodation and activity recommendations for 3 day trip?

Hi everybody, my friend and I plan on spending 3-4 days in LA and then driving down to spend 3-4 days in Palm Springs in mid-late March. We're having trouble finding the perfect accommodation for our trip type. Here are some specifics:

-We want to enjoy lounging and swimming in the water, but can't figure out if its best to (a) stay in a resort with a nice pool or (b) find cheap a cheap Airbnb and go to the beach instead (any beach recommendations?)

-Budget limit: $150-$175 a night

-Neither of us are legal drinking age yet, so most adult nightlife is out of the question

-Enjoy spas, exploring, hiking, good food.

-Are open to other locations in the SoCal desert as long as weather/water is warm!

1. Re: Accommodation and activity recommendations for 3 day trip?

The BNP Paribas tennis tournament runs from March 5-18 and eats up a lot of lodging in the valley near Palm Springs.

Other desert towns to look at are Joshua Tree(for the National Park) or Borrego Springs (Anza Borrego State Park)

Given your age, you might want to look at Lake Havasu in Arizona. Might be right up your alley.
