Casa Ocotillo
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 6, 2008

I just came back from a great (and extended!) weekend at Casa Ocotillo in Palm Springs. There is no need to buy a home in the desert, when you have access to Casa Ocotillo. I spent 4 days pampered in the lap of luxury. The rooms are decorated with amazing artwork. I slept amidst maximum thread count cotton sheets on the softest of bed comforters. The views from the pool are amazing..unobstructed and dramatic. As a guest, you have access to a kitchenette that offers water, juices, fruits, yogurts. bagels, muffins, and amazing coffee. The property is immaculate and very well maintained, and dog friendly. There are shaded dog runs so that your pet can be outside and comfortable. In addition, some of the rooms have gated yards where your pet can wander amongst the many fruit trees. This a place to relax and not be bothered by the sexual tension so prominant at many other vacation properties. The owners, Vic and Brian, are seasoned hospitality managers, and provide for anything you may need, from meal suggestions to entertainment options.
If Casa Ocotillo "is what it is", then it redefines the term "paradise."

Casa Ocotillo is one of the best places we have stayed in Palm Springs. It is quiet and comforting, with a feel of relaxed luxury in the rooms and grounds. Its location is good and offers a view of famous Mount San Jacinto. Brian and Vic both have the gift of easy hospitality. It was like staying with friends, but without sacrificing independence or privacy. The Hacienda Suite was our choice of room. It is spacious, beautifully furnished and features an especially nice original painting from Brian’s art collection. It also has a private patio surrounded by fragrant citrus trees. We enjoyed squeezing our own breakfast juice using oranges cut from this garden. The only disappointment was the Jacuzzi, which is not built in and not as well situated as it might be in the pool area. We would, nevertheless, recommend this hotel enthusiastically to anyone looking for a restful retreat with all the amenities but without a “commercial” feel. It is also one of the few places in its category that is set up to accommodate travelers with a dog.
