The Hacienda at Warm Sands
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Hello Jim, Maurice, Steve and wonderful associates,

We consider this home away from home, total relaxation. This was our fourth visit and it was just as wonderful as the last three. We can't say anything that hasn't been said already. You just have to experience the Hacienda once to understand what a special place this is for professional gay travelers.

Hugs to everyone,
Jeff and Jon

This was our first visit but certainly not our last visit to Palm Springs. We opted for The Hacienda based on the Trip Advisor reviews. We had no expectations and certainly didn't expect to completely fall in love with both the city and the resort instantly.

On entering the Hacienda through the gate there is a feeling of completely closing out the world and all its stress and strain. We were welcomed by Steve and instantly felt like we were at home. The resort is first class plus - way better than any resort we've stayed in, including Sitges and Key West. The value for money is excellent with breakfast and an amazing lunch included in the cost. The room had a full kitchen and with Ralph's grocery store a two minute drive, the option to never leave the Hacienda is very tempting.

Our complimentary upgrade to a Delux Executive Suite was a luxurious home from home. All units are spacious with all the comforts of home with a few luxuries thrown in like bath products and a welcome pack. The grounds are immaculate and with two pools there is plenty of space to hang out with other guests or to retreat to a quiet corner to read or lie in the sun. The staff are attentive and friendly but also very discrete and the whole ambiance of the resort is one a calmness and peace. The 6:45pm sunset is a sight to behold.

Palm Springs itself is a total oasis in the desert. The locals are unbelieveably laid back and welcoming. The Haceinda is the perfect luxurious resort. We are already planning on returning next summer for a week of total rest and relaxation.

I must say, we are probably now considered to be regulars at "THE HACIENDA", but there is a reason that we are regulars, this place is a home away from home, the owners are extremely professional, and extremely friendly and always making sure you are happy as well as comfortable. The Management, simply the best, always there, always looking to help and always to make your visit to Palm Springs a Phenomenal Experience, Staying here is like staying at a 5 Star Hotel, the best of everything, the sheets, the towels, the pool towels, the concierge, the recommendations for dining, the wonderful continental breakfast, and the made to order lunch which is included in your daily rate. So my advise if you are looking to visit Palm Springs, and you want the best.. then Hacienda"s the place to stay..Enjoy!

My 2nd summer in a row to stay. I didn't think it possible, but I found this stay a 6 star on a 5 star scale. The staff are skilled, friendly, & invisible. The Jr Suite had everything I could possibly want. The after hours check-in was easy and convienent. I am a single, executive guy who enjoys good conversation and being able to unplug. Both times I have over-packed. Next summer it is a toothbrush kit and a smile because they take care of the rest!

Room Tip: Single travelers will be comfortable in the Patio room or Jr Suite

My dear friend and I were searching for a gay resort to stay at in Palm Springs and we decided to try this place out. WOW! We were totally blown away!!! This place has it all: peace and quiet, friendly and welcoming staff, good food, good service, AMAZING rooms and grounds, and almost everything to make a luxury getaway all that more luxurious!

There are only 10 villa-like rooms which makes this place that much more intimate. It was totally a BANG for our buck and we will, as space allows, be staying there officially during our stays in Palm Springs.

Thanks guys for a no-nonsense home away from home!

Although this is my first review of The Hacienda, I've stayed there 5 times and I am looking forward to many more visits. There has not been one disappointing moment in any of my stays. The staff, service, grounds, suites, etc. define perfection. The rates are pricey when compared to other options, but worth every cent. I could write more but there is no point - The Hacienda is the gold standard that other resorts should aspire to.

Located in the heart of Warm Sands, this quaint, classy, clothing option men’s resort is a fabulous destination to escape the big city life. The typical guests are couples/partners, close friends, and professional singles. The sexual temperature tends to be on the cold side, which allows you to read a book poolside, sun bathe, or nap without being subjected to public sex acts. There are no sex labyrinths, glory holes, dungeons, or steam rooms to cruise. But don’t let the lack of debauchery turn you away from this little gem. The neighboring resorts known for their play areas are just steps away, literally.

Your stay includes a complimentary continental breakfast and lunch. Each room contains a personalized gift basket that includes bottled water, fruit, and assorted snacks.

The staff members are cheerful, helpful, personable, and very attentive. The newly remodeled rooms are cleaned daily and are immaculate! The common area has a bulletin board that contains a list of things to do while visiting Palm Springs and displays happy hour times, and special events that are occurring at the local bars.

My stay was amazing and can be best described as rejuvenating! I will definitely be staying here again.

I highly recommend The Hacienda.
