Desert Riviera Hotel
Ranked #1 of 75 Hotels in Palm Springs

Reviewed May 19, 2008

We looked at many places and have to admit that it was tripadvisor that sold us - and we we're definately impressed!

Upon arrival, we met Larry and Judy, the owner and the concierge, and the positive social atmosphere was instantly on - water, soda, beer, wine was all inclusive! The pool was great and if we weren't watching one the many DVD movies in their library, or getting a ride in the limo, or getting an in-room massage, we were chatting it up with Larry or Judy - two very nice people.

This is a great example of how to run a business correctly - there isn't much else to add or take away! The Desert Riviera will always be our destination whenever we travel to Palm Springs! Thanks so much for a great time!

A great place to say - the number 1 hotel in Palm Springs, and deservedly so. The hundreds of great reviews on here speak for themselves. If you are staying in Palm Springs don't even consider going elsewhere!

This is what service is all about......great experience!

Absolutely loved it. I was there with my Partner and son and we all enjoyed our time immensely.

Nothing is a problem for Larry, Judy and Patty. They just want to make your stay a pleasurable experience.Limo service is great, free phone calls back home, internet service....the list goes on.
They just add a very special touch to everything they do!

The rooms are great and the pool setting is wonderful both day and night.

If you are going to stay in Palm Springs all roads lead to Desert Riviera Hotel.

Have fun!

Excellent all-around. The best small hotel service we have ever experienced. Before leaving, we booked again for next year.

Hosts are wonderful.

Pool and deck area are very nice, sunny, and just what we needed.

For the 3rd time in a year my friends and I just needed to go to the Desert Riviera. This is just the best place I know to relax and have some fun. The pool is just wonderful and everyone among the guests is very friendly. It is so nice to chat by the pool or the bbq. And Larry and Judy are so lovely. You can only love the Desert Riviera. Not to mention that the place is also gorgeous.

It's all been said in previous reviews but this place is really a rare find. We are so happy that we choose Desert Riviera over Mexico for our first relaxing vacation together since our son was born. Larry, Patty, and Judy all do an outstanding job with the hotel. The rooms are immaculate and we love the quaint atmosphere of the hotel.

We took the bikes out for a spin around beautfiul Palm Springs every morning and then laid by the pool all afternoon. Judy was more than helpful with getting us set up for dinner each night and made the grill available to us when we wanted to stay in and cook. The limo was a nice touch - we didn't drive a car for the whole 4 days we were there. We could mingle with the other guests around the fire pit at night or turn in for an early night alone. You felt comfortable making either choice.

All around - a GREAT spot to vacation!

I just returned from our annual girls weekend and this was our first year changing to Desert Riviera and we are so happy we made the change. We were treated royally and we have now booked the place for the same time every year. Judy and Larry were great and were so helpful with anything we requested. We took over the entire place and during the heat of the day, Larry put an umbrella in the pool so we could hang out and have shade. Recommend this place to everyone.......Cheryle M
