My Partner and I stayed at Desert Eclipse in October 2013. What a wonderful little Gem in the desert. We were picked up by Michael, one of the owners, from the Airport and brought a short drive to their little oasis. The resort although small, has a wonderfully warm feel to it. Everything was immaculate. Our room, number 6, had a large king bed with beautiful linens and the most lovely pillows. We also had a full kitchen and a private patio area to the back of the suite. Free Wi-Fi too. Leonard, another little Gem in the desert, who looks after all of the guest rooms, was just fabulous. He could not have been more helpful, always at hand to help with, extra towels, toiletries nothing was a problem. Michael and Scott are lucky to have him. Michael was always up at the crack of dawn to organise the breakfast area. There was a great range of continental foods on offer, fresh bagels, delicious muffins, cereal, and fruit, plenty to get you started for your day ahead. They have two Keurig Coffee machines, with a cupboard full of different types of coffee and tea, available 24hrs. There is also a fridge filled with sodas, run on an honors system, 50cent a pop. The courtyard style of the property with comfortable loungers and parasols dotted around the pool was perfect. There was no part of the day where you didn't get Sun. The gardens are very lush and beautifully manicured. The pool is delightful, it is salt water, no chlorine and large enough for the size of the property. All manner of relaxing flotation devices are available to use, to float your cares away in the pool. There is also a full size barbecue for use by guests. As I had let Michael & Scott know that it was my partner’s birthday when we were there, they very thoughtfully left the most delicious birthday cake in our room upon our arrival. Such a sweet and lovely personal touch. Desert Eclipse is a short walk to the centre of town, and within walking distance from the nearest drug stores and supermarkets.Ralphs is 5 minutes walk. One thing that newcomers to Palm Springs should know is that everything is close by. If you are looking for a relaxing place to stay, to get away from the world, you can't go wrong with Desert Eclipse. We enjoyed every minute of our stay and made some friends along the way too. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer.
Until next time Palm Springs......
