Wedding and Honeymoon Celebrations

Saturday, June 28th, 2008

The News – A breakthrough that we thought would never happen in our lifetimes is now a reality for us all. It is now time to genuinely consider marriage and honeymooning in Palm Springs, California at The Hacienda at Warm Sands

Yes, it is now official. The California State Supreme Court ruled on May 15, 2008 that same sex couples can apply for a marriage license … and unlike Massachusetts, which limits marriage licenses only to Massachusetts state residents, California has no such restriction. And better yet, there is not a more perfect place in this World than The Hacienda for your marriage and honeymoon. The Hacienda has independently been rated as ‘one of the most romantic resorts in the world’.

Marriage is the ultimate expression of your love and commitment. Further, marriage provides many legal benefits.

So… is this the time for you to marry… and to honeymoon as a ‘newly-wed’ couple in ‘pampered’ style at The Hacienda at Warm Sands?

If the answer is YES, book our Honeymoon Package and celebrate this memorable moment in your lives together in beautiful Palm Springs.

Memorable Experience at the Hacienda

Saturday, June 28th, 2008

My friend and I stayed at the Hacienda recently which proved to be a memorable experience which we both enjoyed immensely. The concerned, caring attitude of the staff, with a cordiality that seemed so genuine, along with a certain unobtrusive style of doing things, made us feel right at home. When you add the beautiful properties overall spaciousness; the cozy, well appointed suites (ours had a romantic fireplace) put our stay over the top. Combining the Hacienda’s unique comforting appointments, their Pillow Menu, the suite’s style and property’s sense of serenity, simply created for us the perfect combination for a thoroughly relaxing experience. The Hacienda earns a 5 star rating…we can’t wait to return.

A Beautiful Holiday Setting

Saturday, June 28th, 2008

We enjoyed Christmas at the Hacienda this year. What wonderful memories we have of our stay and of the staff. The property was beautiful with huge fresh Poinsettia plants on both sides of our suite’s French doors. The staff took care of every detail, effortlessly with a fun demeanor, including having our favorite drinks and snacks available in our suite prior to our arrival. We met two guys from London during our stay who have since become good friends. The Hacienda’s memories put warm smiles on our faces. We look forward to returning.

Couldn’t ask for anything better! Don’t miss the chance

Saturday, June 28th, 2008

This was our first time at The Hacienda and it definitely WILL NOT be our last. The accomodations are great and the staff is very hospitable and out going; making you feel immediately at home while away from home. The amenities are wonderful and who could ask for anything better. Breakfast and lunch are a treat; delicious and plentiful. The resort grounds are comforable, well groomed and what great scenic views from the front pool area. Service and cleanliness stand out as well as comfort. The friendliness of staff and willingness to accomodate personal needs is outstanding. The coziness of the resort allows for friendships to be developed, and if desired it can be friendly yet unobtrusive with personal space respected. We made friends with visitors from Paris, whom we hope to visit in the near future. If ever in Palm Springs and want a laid-back and pampered vacation, do not miss the chance to experience The Hacienda, you will want to return and stay longer the next visit.

The Hacienda is Like an Oasis

Saturday, June 28th, 2008

Our recent trip to Palm Springs was our first and we had high expectations. Many of our friends had been to this very gay-friendly city in the past and we felt like we were missing out. Since we didn’t know whether we would like any particular guest house, we decided to split our vacation in half and spend a few nights in each of two places (the Hacienda and the Century).
The Hacienda is wonderful. The grounds were open and grassy, with two fabulous pools and a hot tub, and a view of the mountains to die for. The rooms were more than spacious, they were full fledged apartments, and very clean and well tended. We had room 2, right off the front pool. We felt quite at home, as we left our door open and causually drifted from poolside to guestroom and back. It was pure relaxation and I did not want it to end. The staff was more than generous with their time for us, and their cheery mood always caused laughter to errupt from the office. It was like staying at a good friend’s place. (The Century, on the other hand, was just OK. Much more minimalist and spartan, less spacious, more concrete (as in surfaces not concepts), and it paid less attention to details.)
After taking tours of other guest houses while we were in Palm Springs, there is no question that we will stay at the Hacienda when we again visit Palm Springs (that is, if we don’t buy a house there – I say move now, my partner wants to wait a few years). The Hacienda was a major factor in my assessment of our vacation as being one of the best, most fun, and most relaxing vacations we have ever taken. Good work, boys, and thanks!

An Oasis in Warm Sands, Palm Springs

Saturday, June 28th, 2008

The Hacienda has created a beautiful oasis in Warm Sands that welcomes you from the moment you enter the gate and makes you not want to leave. The rooms, grounds, common areas, amenities – everything is done with a style that bespeaks a love for what they have created, not to mention attention to detail and professionalism. I’ve left not the least for last, and that is the outstanding staff. Steve, Kaleb, Tom and all the other guys are jewels in the Hacienda crown (or should I say tiara?!) who make it truly complete and special. They were attentive yet unobtrusive, friendly and fun yet not overly so. And they dressed like resort boys and didn’t smoke! Hooray!

From the fun cocktail reception on Saturday night to being taken in the following Sunday night when we were “orphaned” at the airport by a flight cancellation due to bad weather in Chicago (we wouldn’t have thought of calling anywhere BUT the Hacienda), the entire staff was fabulous and made us immediately feel like family. We eagerly look forward to our next stay with them. Keep up the excellent work!

Excellent gay resort option in Palm springs

Saturday, June 28th, 2008

We stayed here at the last minute after diverting from hurricane weather bearing down on Fort Lauderdale.

The resort while not five stars in the four seasons sense is excellent. Rooms and facilities were a good size clean and very comfortable and stylish. They are due from a revamp in the bathrooms but clean and tidy there too.

The facilities were great with excellent range of movies and books as well as two pools and a SPA. Lunch is thrown in and excellent as well. Though full was not crowded and we made some great friends lounging around the pool.

The staff were excellent and every request was sorted in a minute.

Well done guys! A great little gay resort with style and friendly service.

Excellent

Saturday, June 28th, 2008

We are fortunate to be able to travel extensively both in the USA and Europe and yet for all our travels, we keep on coming back to The Hacienda. Having visited each year for the last twelve years, we can recommend this high-end destination with confidence. The owners Jim and Maurice go out of their way to make guests welcome and comfortable and their continuing programme of improvements keep the property in good condition. The cottages around two pools are spacious and well appointed with well equipped kitchens and the most comfortable beds in the desert. The house staff and especially Stephen have a ‘we can do that’ approach where everything from restaurant reservations to laundry is taken care of. On our previous visit, we had some bad news from home and the staff went out of their way making phones and email available to help us out. Their concern was genuine and touching. This year, we left a watch in our room and the staff texted us in Boston to let us know that they would arrange for it to be shipped back to our home in the UK. They wouldn’t hear of us paying for postage. It arrived beautifully wrapped yesterday. A smart destination where old fashioned service with a contemporary twist can still be found. Excellent!
