You pay more but its so worth it!

Friday, March 20th, 2015

Stayed 3 nights at Hacienda and a last night at another clothing optional gay property (since Hacienda was full). Top likes at Hacienda: 5-star everything, lovely beds and linens, everything clean, breakfast and lunch included low sexual temp. They even shopped for us which saved us getting a rental car and booked two great restaurants (Lulu and Aria). (Store is 10-15 min walk away). Pool, grounds, flowers etc. all lovely. Staff super attentive and friendly. Recommend for anyone wanting to pamper themselves. Lovely fellow guests – friendly but not imposing. Stayed at a lot of gay resorts and Hacienda is easily in our top three.

Peace and Quiet

Friday, February 27th, 2015

My husband and I recently visited Palm Springs for a business trip and The Hacienda was the hotel a friend recommended to us. We were greeted warmly upon our arrival and made to feel at home immediately by the entire staff. The service is top notch. Our room was terrific- spacious, comfortable and very clean. We had French doors that opened up to the pool area which was wonderful. We enjoyed the beautiful scenery and we were incredibly comfortable and relaxed throughout our stay. They played relaxing spa-like music by the pool which incredibly relaxing. Breakfast and lunch was included in our stay which was really nice. Another nice treat was that we met some really great guys here- people we will likely keep in touch with in the future.

Oasis of Tranquility and Elegance”

Friday, February 27th, 2015

While down on a business trip, I decided to stay over in Palm Springs for some fun in the sun. After an absolutely disastrous first night at another “resort,” I was able to snag a Deluxe Junior suite here. From check-in, I realized that the Hacienda Warm Sands was an oasis where one can relax and socialize in a very calm and beautiful location. Lots of small touches further elevated the experience. Attentive and friendly staff. While it comes at a price, it was worth every dime.

The Hacienda of Warm Sands Stands Above the Others!

Saturday, February 14th, 2015

It’s great to be remembered from an earlier visit. We were greeted like old returning friends. There were custom pillows on our bed with our names in them! All the things you look for: comfort, cleanliness, responsive staff, are all here. The suite was spacious. A generous breakfast and lunch comes as part of the stay. And NO tipping is allowed at any time for any reason. This is by far the best place to stay among the gay resorts in Palm Springs.

Beautiful place with great service.

This is one of the nicest gay resorts in Palm Springs. They have two pools and a hot tub. They have about 10 rooms and you get to know people easily. The breakfast that is provided is very high quality. The staff is friendly. The stay includes lunch which was a nice surprise as I did not realize that when I booked the stay. You have a menu of lunch options and they bring it right to you. I can’t speak highly enough of this wonderful retreat. One of the best stays ever!

A Fabulous New Year Celebration

Tuesday, January 27th, 2015

My husband and I ushered in the New Year with a fabulous stay at The Hacienda at Warm Sands. From the moment of our arrival New years Eve, with a bottle of champagne awaiting us in our suite, to the hugs shared with the outstanding staff upon our departure, every moment was perfect. The suite was spacious and immaculate, with attention to every detail a guest could desire. The multi-headed shower was luxurious, they provided L’Occitane personal care products top notch, and the abundance of towels and bath robes never ending. The delicious morning breakfast and daily lunch were a real plus; it was a pleasure to know we could return from our morning outings to a freshly prepared (ordered from the menu) lunch waiting for us poolside or in our suite. The grounds were impeccably maintained, and two pools for a ten room boutique hotel created the utmost in privacy and serenity. Our suite in the front half of the facility opened to the pool and hot tub with a spectacular view of the nearby mountains, while the rear pool was a bit more private and heavily landscaped. The staff were supremely attentive and courteous, addressing our every request promptly and willingly. This was our first visit to Palm Springs and The Hacienda at Warm Sands but surely won’t be our last. I cannot imagine any of the other resorts meeting these standards.

If you like to relax and enjoy…

Friday, January 23rd, 2015

The holiday at the Hacendia was my first time staying at the Resort. My stay was three weeks of total enjoyment. The entire staff could not have been more accommodating They went completely out of their way to make my stay with them totally enjoyable MY accommodations were very comfortable indeed.
Several pluses for the Hacienda one of them is the proximity of accommodations to the swimming pools. Mine was only fifteen feet. Another is the proximity to Palm Springs Proper. A mere fifteen to twenty minute walk depending on your gait.

Another plus I enjoyed is the clothing optional. I love swimming in the nude.

So I am looking forward to another sojourn to the Dessert, at the Hacienda at Warm Sands.

The Hacienda at Warm Sands, still “Home Away From Home”

Wednesday, January 14th, 2015

My partner and I again traveled to The Hacienda last October (2014) for what is our regular annual time to stay. October is great for the weather and we have been taking advantage of the Columbus Day holiday for our 8-9 day stays. The atmospshere is always fantastic, quiet, and private. The staff has become our extended family since 2003 and have had the pleasure to staying there no less than about 16 times! The staff is always very attentive, helpful in arranging reservations at restaurants, very outgoing, and pay attention to every detail in guest comforts. Our stays never seem long enough. Time for us stands still once we enter the lush green courtyards. Once we settle in we only leave for dinner or shopping. Rest of the time is poolside, reading, visiting with friends or meeting new ones. Each trip is always different, and always relaxing. We met a great couple 3 years ago from Abbots Langley, London, UK and we now arrange our travel schedule to coincide with theirs at the Hacienda. We began planning for our 2015 stay last year after we left the Hacienda. We now are again looking forward to our October stay and seeing our good friends. Jim, Maurice, and the staff continue to do a superb job! Always high quality and consistent from the rooms to service, and atmosphere.

Final Few Days of Complete R&R

Saturday, January 10th, 2015

During a visit to Palm Springs in early November, we sampled several different resorts choosing to stay our final stretch at the Hacienda at Warm Sands; our first stay here. As Canadians, the visit south was a nice break from the cold!

Every aspect of our stay was top-drawer! Check-in was easy and comfortable as the staff on duty walked us thru the various aspects of the property and our suite. Everything was explained to our satisfaction and we set out to the grocery store to pick up some wine, cheese and a few items to have in the kitchen of our unit.

The suite itself was spot on. Having a living room separate from the sleeping area was a godsend as both of us aren’t always wanting to take a nap or watch TV at the same time.

The hot tub was plenty hot and we met a few folks while lounging there. A couple from Quebec were in the room next to ours and we enjoyed a nice dinner with them one evening and made some new friends.

The catered lunch well exceeded my expectations. Staff were attentive and available without hovering or being intrusive.

Can’t wait to come back. Hacienda will definitely be a regular “must visit” for us.

Best place to stay in Palm Springs

Thursday, January 8th, 2015

The Hacienda is the only place where we’d stay in Palm Springs. The rooms are always beautifully furnished & personalized & feel better than being at home. The grounds are intimate, immaculate & function well. The staff are always professional & attentive & make our stays absolutely fantastic. There are so many extra touches & amenities offered that we’re always surprised & pleased. The Hacienda is romantic, quiet & close to everything you’d want to do in Palm Springs, from great restaurants, nightlife & hikes in the dessert. There’s no better place to stay when you’re in Palm Springs.
