The hotel is very pleasant. The pool and jacuzzi are private but still open and lush. The courtyard/garden is surrounded by a tall hedge and palm trees. The guys who work there seem genuinely friendly and interested in helping us with assorted things. We called last minute this last Saturday and were able to get an affordable large room with great view of the property and the mountains. The room and common areas were all clean.
The price of the room included a nice breakfast and lunch as well as snacks and bottled water in the rooms. The room was quiet even with the pool outside and the air conditioner which I heard can be overly loud at some places.
The clientele was youngish and upscale for Palm Springs. We met some nice guys from Phoenix and Sydney. One can be to themselves or join the crowd around the pool. Definitely flirty and sexual without overtly a free for all sex club.
It is close to the gay bar - Hunter's - a 3 minute cab ride.
We are a gay couple in our 30's and 40's.
