“Best of the Best”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

CCBC's facilities are very attractive. Great poolside (clothing optional) sunbathing, jacuzzis, events, entertainment and, above all, a knock-out staff that anticipates your every need. Unique play spaces tick off lots of boxes...The best in the valley, hands down (or up!)

Room Tip: not a bad room in the resort. spend what you want.

If you're looking for a place where you can be raunchy and let it hang out, this might be the place for you. Most definitely not the swankiest place in town, it is reasonably maintained and the staff is personable and patient, especially considering the sampling of the clientele which I witnessed.

I was disappointed that it felt like I was staying in a glorified bath house.

The grounds were clean enough with some interesting fountains and water features which were maintained and I enjoyed the steam sauna which got some good heat, but there was a terrible smell of sewage on the lower side of the property, which co-incidentally were where the "play rooms" were. Some of the clientele, when I arrived late at night, were walking around looking for a hookup. They were the same well sketched out folks who had been there since the afternoon and still looking.

However, this being a facility review, the sheets were clean on the soft old bed and the bathroom was clean-ish except for the black mold which was on the baseboards. It was an adequate stay, not counting the fact that the next morning happened to spot a couple of used bright yellow condoms under the bed sitting in a pile of dust. Not pretty, and somewhat revolting, in fact.

The staff were very friendly and accommodating and the breakfast in the a.m. was basic, but adequate. Would I stay here again? Most probably not. Would I recommend? Only as a last resort, pun not intended.

Room Tip: If you absolutely must stay here, ask for rooms away from the speakers on the higher elevation.

The staff could not have been nicer. Our room was big and comfortable. The weather was 82 degrees. Lots of guys and good music playing! The pool and hot tub were lots of fun. The grounds were well kept and huge. Lots of areas to explore at this resort. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: We were in room 20 which was really big, clean and the bed was comfortable.

Ok - we didn't plan on it being as cold as it has been in Palm Springs and this will affect our plans to visit in the future by choosing our dates more carefully.

However, it was great to return to CCBC and see that the venue continues to be a good place to visit. It would appear that the owners continue to improve the property and there have been additions since our last visit and work underway to include further facilities. The staff are friendly and make an effort to ensure that your stay is happy.

We book a garden view room which is a good size and comfortable.

I stayed in room 15 this past week for 3 nights. I had a great time. This is definitely the place to stay if you are looking for some hot evening (and daytime) hookups and fun. As long as you know and want that, then you will enjoy it. If you are looking for something with a bit more of an upmarket feel or a less overtly cruise environment, then it is not the place for you.

I found the staff to all be polite and helpful. My room was basic but clean and I had no complaints about it. The aircon certainly worked which was the main thing! The grounds are lovely - great pool, two jacuzzis, the famous of infamous nature walk, and the other play areas - I really enjoyed them all. When I stayed I also found there was amid of different types of men staying - mostly but not all older. There was certainly no attitude amongst the guests and I found everyone to be very friendly and fun.

I did not have a car and I would not recommend staying here without a car. The bus is very nearby and it is very frequent and cheap, plus you can walk to the Barracks bar (the Sunday beer bust is fun) and Digs bar, but other gay and general attractions of the area area bit of a hike so you're probably better off with a car. Still, I did okay without one, and there is a Target and Trader Joes within walking distance so it's no problem getting supplies. And of course you can spend most of your time just lounging about the pool or getting to know the other guests - which is what I did.

I would stay here again. I think it's a good place for single gay men looking for a bit of fun and who aren't going to be offended by an environment that get a bit raunchy. Although some of us like that :-)

I stay at CCBC every time I visit Palm Springs (which is quite often). The resort occupies a very large park like setting and has may many different room types and locations. The service is outstanding and the resort itself is super secure and staff are available 24/7! A lot of locals frequent the resort on "day passes" so there is always a good mix of guys. The entire staff is a group of great guys who I cannot say enough good about. If you enjoy a great pool, wonderful grounds and "fun" times this is THE place to stay.
