Best Gay Luxury

Friday, July 18th, 2014

Hacienda continues to be my first choice for a few days in Palm Springs. The staff is friendly, attentive. The rooms are and grounds are beautiful. This is for comfort, quiet, and conversation with other guests from around the country. A little more expensive, but worth it.

Another Great Visit!

Wednesday, July 16th, 2014

My partner and I love staying at The Hacienda and are already trying to plan our next trip! We visited in June/July 2014 for 4-5 days and it was our 5th visit. It continues to be a wonderful resort and even the smallest details are very well considered and executed, down to the furnishings, meals, quality products in the bathrooms, linens, the solid construction of the buildings, beautiful landscaping, and I could go on and on and on. I would absolutely recommend staying here!

Paradise In The Desert

Wednesday, July 16th, 2014

My friend and I recently returned from an extraordinary weekend at the Hacienda. Quiet days at the pool, a well equipped continental breakfast, delicious lunches served poolside and a beautiful suite next to the pool all amidst a wonderful sanctuary in Palm Springs – it was perfect. The Keurig in the room was another wonderful touch :) I find myself day dreaming of my next stay at the Hacienda – we so enjoyed the staff and the other guests. I can’t wait to book my next trip!

LOVE THIS PLACE!

Saturday, July 12th, 2014

I recently enjoyed a full week stay at The Hacienda at Warm Sands. This was my second time visting The Hacienda and it reconfirmed why I would not stay anywere else when visiting Palm Springs.

The staff is amazing. They are friendly, professional, and go the extra mile to make your stay a pleasant one. From recommending restaurants to booking massages, the staff is top notch.

My absolute favorite service The Hacienda provides is the pre-shopping service. For a nominal fee and the cost of items purchased, you can submit a list in advance of your stay of what you would like stocked in your room and the staff will do the shopping for you and have your room fully stocked upon your arrival. Everything from snacks and bottled water to sunscreen and alcohol. Its great to come from the airport and settle in without having to run to the store and stock up on these items. More time to relax.

In addition to the continental breakfast that is served in the morning, The Hacienda also has lunch catered. Simply submit your order form to the front desk in the morning and lunch will be brought to you and served poolside or in your room. How great is it to not have to leave to get lunch when you are enjoying a relaxing day by the pool?

The rooms are large, very clean, and very comfortable. The rooms are full of amenities.
– Refridgerator – Blender
– Sink – Martini Shaker
– Cups – TV and CD player
– Plates – Clock radio with IPHONE docking station
– Silverware – Safe
– High end Personal Care supplies

For me the tell tale sign that The Hacienda is a great place to stay, is that in the six nights I stayed at the resort, after dinner, I went back to the hotel to swim under the stars, read my book, or watch a movie from their movie library. Not once did I go out to the bars at night. I was very happy to stay in and relax.

Traveled solo.

The Extra Mile – And Then Some!

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2014

What a fantastic experience. We had chosen the Hacienda for a special trip (getting married) to Palm Springs based on the TripAdvisor reviews, and it delivered on all fronts! From the beautifully manicured property to the spotlessly clean rooms, the Hacienda is picture perfect. Then you add in the exceptional staff and personable owners, and it’s no wonder this property is so highly rated – not to mention the outstanding breakfast and catered lunches. Seriously – why go anywhere else? You certainly won’t lack for anything here. We can’t say thank you enough to Maurice, Jim, Steve, Robbie, and the whole staff. All of their efforts certainly made our special occasion a truly memorable one. Thank you!!

The best gay resort in Palm Springs

Tuesday, June 24th, 2014

I have stayed at many gay resorts in Palm Springs including all of the luxury properties but none of them compare with The Hacienda at Warms Sands. The resort is absolutely beautiful and has two separate pools at opposite ends of the property which was great. The rooms are beautiful and spacious and the bedding is superb. The resort is well maintained with gorgeous common areas and feels like a true sanctuary in a perfection location in Palm Springs. The complimentary breakfast and lunch was delicious and of high quality. A fresh and diverse breakfast buffet is served in the morning while you can order your lunch from an extensive menu and have it served in your room or by the pool. If you are looking for a stress free and extremely comfortable stay then this is the place for you. The other guests were all lovely people from a wide range of ages and were a mixture of couples and solo travelers like myself. The layout of the resort gives you both the opportunity to socialize with other guests as much as you like or alternatively if you need your own space that is easily achieved too. The staff were absolutely incredible. These people are true professionals and provided exceptional service at all times. Highly professional, courteous and friendly but also very approachable and down to earth. I originally booked three nights but stayed for over a week as the staff made me feel so welcome and relaxed. Im looking forward to my next stay there.

The perfect place to stay!

Tuesday, June 24th, 2014

We visited Palm Springs for the first time a couple of weeks ago and luckily picked The Hacienda for our accommodations….largely due to reviews from tripadvisor. It was a little more expensive than other choices, but you know the old saying, “you get what you pay for”! The staff was cheerful and friendly, not to mention very helpful with restaurant suggestions, reservations, and advice on things to do. The property was beautiful and peaceful. There are only 10 rooms, yet 2 full size pools to enjoy. Our room was large, well appointed, spotlessly clean, with a super comfortable bed. We enjoyed the continental breakfast and rich coffee poolside with new friends each morning. And then one of the best ideas ever….a catered lunch served either poolside or in your room each day. Who ever decided to do this is a genius! Delicious salads, sandwiches, or wraps that you choose at breakfast delivered directly to you. Think about it, after covering yourself with sunscreen and baking in the desert sun, who wants to interrupt their day by having to shower, get dressed, and go get something for lunch? It was the finishing touch that insures we will ONLY stay at the Hacienda when vacationing in Palm Springs. Hint: rent a car and go to Joshua Tree National Park.

Spectacular Hotel

Tuesday, June 24th, 2014

The Hacienda was a pleasent surprise. We stayed there by default since other hotels were full. The hotel has now become a favorite where we will stay in the future. The atmosphere is quiet and beautiful. The clientel were extremely friendly and we ended up having lunch with everyone by the pool every day. It was quite the find.

Another wonderful stay

Tuesday, June 24th, 2014

Our second visit to the Hacienda was even better than the first. We are so impressed with the small details at this property–like the personalized embroidered pillows, and the lunch order slips pre-printed with our names. And when we told the staff we would be checking out at 5am to catch an early flight, they offered to have breakfast items put into our fridge the night before.

The high-end touches are fantastic–the towels with a pocket that slides over the top of the pool chairs so they don’t slide down, the L’Occitane en Provence bath products, and the ‘pillow menu’. It all feels luxurious without being fussy.

It’s quite a hike from our home in NYC, but so worth it. We look forward to coming back again and again.

Home, Relax, Friends, Peace, Service AND Paradise!

Saturday, April 19th, 2014

The Hacienda is by far the best boutique hotel we’ve stayed at. We just returned from our 3rd trip to Palm Springs and 3rd time at The Hacienda. There is no reason to stay anywhere else in Palm Springs. The suites are clean and large and the 2 pool areas are peaceful and totally comfortable. If you want a gay party place, this isn’t it. The clientele of The Hacienda tends to be coupled or single men who want a more luxurious gay only experience and that’s why we would go back in a heart beat. Above all, the service staff makes the experience fantastic. Steve, Paul, Robbie and the others made us feel at home. I would give a special nod to Robbie, who I would now call a friend, so sweet and attentive. Most impressive is that Jim and Maurice, as owners, make an effort to meet every guest and do introductions of all the guests on the weekend wine hour….class.
