“Terrific hotel and staff”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

This was our second stay at the Del Marcos, again in the Errol Flynn room. Just a block off the main street, the hotel is beautifully decorated and maintained. No children under 18 and the only music at the pool is provided by the hotel. Blissful. A real oasis in the desert. The staff could not be better: friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: The Errol Flynn room is on the second floor and has its own deck. Quiet and private.

This was my second visit and this is my second review. I just got back from my two day stay, about an hour ago. After last years trip, which was my first time to the Del, I could hardly wait to come back here. Well, it delivered once again! This place inspires you to put away the technology and truly relax. It's a trip back in time, to 1947. The last time we were here, we hit it off with another couple and stay in touch with them, and this time we met several fabulous people again, and have plans to get together for dinner in August. There is something about the Del Marcos that attracts low maintenence, friendly, down to earth people. I really love that. You can keep to yourself if you want to; there was a couple there who didn't talk to anyone but eachother all weekend- but for the most part people here are happy, relaxed, and friendy.
So when I walked up to the front door I was disappointed not to see Laura, but I suppose she has a life outside of the Del. :) My disappointment quickly faded away as we were greeted by Skylar, who was absolutely adorable. He was helpful and sweet, and informed us that they took the liberty of upgrading our room, rather than bringing in a microwave as we requested. Then he offered us our complimentary "Welcome Drink". Nice. So, we were in the Esquivel room, which was comfortable, lovely, and had a front door facing the saltwater pool, which was the perfect temperature. The bed was great, the air conditioner was awesome, the complimentary bodywash, hair products were really a good quality, and there was an endless supply of towels. We had a lovely patio, which we used a bit. A blender, microwave, refrigerator, utensils, cups, plates, EVERYTHING was provided. We just brought our groceries. We will definitely be back ASAP. :) The continental breakfast was quite nice as well, with bagels, yogurt, coffee, pastries, granola, fruit, juice, etc. Oh, and the iced, fruit-infused water by the pool was fabulous. Once again, the fact that this hotel is adults only and non smoking adds MAJOR points in my book. Love this place! See you soon, Del Marcos. I miss you already.

This is one of those rare hotels that is actually better than the photos! Our room (Las Palmas) was a smaller room but nicely updated and had a mini-fridge to keep our poolside beverages cold. And, who really cares about the size of the room when you have a beautiful saltwater pool with a gorgeous view. Very relaxing. Free beer on arrival, free breakfast daily, free parking, cruiser bikes for checking out the awesome MCM architecture in town, and walking distance from shops/coffee/restaurants... all at a great price!

Once again Del Marcos came through with a wonderful stay courtesy of the manager Laura! This is our 2nd time staying and the only place I will stay while visiting Palm Springs. We have tried many over the years but have found the perfect place at Del Marcos! The entire staff is so helpful and friendly. We stay in Oceans 11 and love the large room for 4 women. It's perfect. They even added additional mirrors which we had requested the previous year. They have also added some beautiful vintage dressers. It really is a perfect place for us. One of the added bonuses is that it is adults only. So peaceful! Thank you for once again making out girls weekend so wonderful!!

Stayed here for a friend's 40th birthday celebration. There were about 35 of us and Laura and her staff could not have been more accommodating. The hotel is charming, the rooms are comfortable and well-appointed and Laura was so welcoming. I highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a place to stay in Palm Springs. Oh, and the pool!

Room Tip: All of the rooms are great, but I stayed in the Esquivel room.
