“Awesome time”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

My partners and I just spent a relaxing weekend at Tortuga del Sol. The hosts and guests were friendly and made us feel at home. Our room was clean, nicely appointed and very comfortable. Needless to say we will be back again. We look forward to seeing Ric and Rob again...

My best friend and I stayed at Tortuga Del Sol for 2 nights in March, 2012 and I would go back and stay in a minute. The owners are so friendly and hospitable, the resort is tranquil, clean, and in a convenient location, not too far from the bars/clubs but not too close so as to deal with all the nonsense and noise that comes with it.

The pools are clean and comfortable, there is a GREAT garden to sit in and the turtles are adorable.

We are 28 and 40 years old, and it is by no means a party resort with lots of young people looking to hook up. Other resorts (that you can get a day pass to) definitely have that feel, but this is a great escape from it all and I'd highly recommend it.

This is our second stay at the Tortuga, we stayed in May 2010 and latterly December 2011. Both stays we're very relaxing and we were upgraded both times at no extra charge. Our room was clean and well appointed, the pool is clean and warm and the Guys- Ric and Rob were wonderful hosts. Breakfast is also very good. This would be our resort of choice whenever we visit Palm Springs

This is a very clean place, owners were really friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean. The fan in our bathroom was removed and never replaced. Clientele was older than in other resorts but we went there at the begining of Spring. A little bit far from the gay restaurants and bars.

We stayed here last week. We chose it because the hotel had 1 dog-friendly room. We took it and immediately were thankful for our decision.

The pool is perfect - warm and with mountain and garden views. The garden is beautiful and full of flowers. Our room was clean, well-appointed, and had both a kitchen and a fenced area outside for our dogs to use to relieve themselves. Perfect!

This place provides the most relaxing atmosphere. The owners are wonderful. The garden is beautiful. We loved it and even extended our stay 1 extra night.

This property is exactly what we were looking for. We would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a very relaxed gay resort in Palm Springs who also does not want that place to be like a bathhouse! Expect to have a very nice, relaxing time here. We look forward to coming back soon!

I would strongly recommend this hotel for the value and the warm, hospitable service. It is not luxurious or fancy, but it is very nice and comfortable. We had a spacious room with a kitchen facing the pool for less than $150 per night. The best part is the hosts, Rob & Ricardo. Two very sweet guys who go out of their way to make sure everyone feels welcome, is comfortable and has all of the info they need (directions, restaurants, etc.) to make the most of their visit to Palm Springs.

Room Tip: Two little rooms in back don't face pool.
