Best gay accommodation in Palm Springs

Monday, October 31st, 2011

I did lots research before I arrived to find what looked like the best gay place to stay in Palm Springs. I was not disappointed and, although I have not looked around the other properties, I can’t see them being any better.

The location is great – in a very well manicured area of town. We walked to the center of town and the bars, restaurants and gay bars every night – it’s about a 15 minute walk.

You can tell the property has TLC – the place is perfect with all the amenities, and it’s cleaned spotlessly in the room and everywhere on the property.

We stayed in a suite with a patio out the back of the room. The room was large.

The price at $350 per night was a premium price but the property is a premium experience. The great news is that included in the rate is breakfast, lunch (very nice) and all tips – including tips is a great idea.

Some very good/special things:

– the concierge/generally looking after you, done by Paul and Rob, was fantastic – the guys are great
– the free wifi is excellent quality
– there is a kitchen with plates cups etc
– there is a guest laundry which is free
– the information pack in the room is first rate
– there is a pillow menu
– there is background music pipes through speakers all around the outside areas of the property. i would rater silence. but the good news is that it’s played very quietly and the music is innocuous rather than house or showtunes!
– there is lots of outside space and 2 pools so, even when full, it does not feel busy
– the general manager was off the day we arrived so Jim, the co-owner, was there to greet us and show us around the property – this is a great sign of a well run establishment
– on the last day, even after we had checked out, they offered us free lunch – which was lovely
– the 2 man shower is amazing with mid level jets as well as the overhead ones
– the room is lovely
– the kitchen had 2 fridges!

Exceeded every expectation

Sunday, October 16th, 2011

It was perfect in every way. My partner and I had both been to Palm Springs before but had never tried the Hacienda at Warm Sands. From the minute we walked in and were greeted by Steve, we knew we had come to the right place. The property was spectaculiar, the rooms were beautiful and comfortable and our entire stay was picture perfect. Jim and Maurice made sure that everyone felt welcome and appreciated. We actually decided to extend our stay by an extra day as we simply did not want to leave. Actions speak louder than words. We are already planning our next trip and have told all our friends that they must put The Hacienda at Warms Sands on thier future vacation plans. Thanks gentlemen for everything!!

Best Choice in Gay Palm Springs

Saturday, October 15th, 2011

My Partner and I have stayed 4 times, and this playce never dissapoints. It is our romantic getaway from L.A.

The service and accomodations are top notch and always immaculate. The staff is superb, and very friendly. The rooms are absolutely spotless, and the decor very masculine and warm, much like a mexican hacienda. The breakfast and lunch (that are included) are more than you would expect and better than what you would find one of the local luxury hotels. I can’t say enough about this Guest House…..a MUST if you are in Palm Springs!

A Guest House That Knows How To Treat Their Guests!

Wednesday, October 12th, 2011

My partner and I recently returned from a 2-week vacation in Palm Springs (Sept-Oct 2011). Although we have visited PS several times in recent years, this was our first stay at the Hacienda and in the Warm Sands area. We will return here without hesitation.

We were pleased to see that this guest house met our expectations (based on brochures and word-of-mouth), and in fact exceeded them. Considering our stay was 14 days long, we certainly tested all aspects of the services and accommodations offered. The accommodations were great: firm king-size bed, deluxe pillow menu, sufficient kitchenette (we had a Junior Suite), ample storage, 2 flat-screen tv’s, great shower and comfortable living room. The grounds and the pool(s) were immaculate and most noticeable for us, the room and the grounds were spotless!

The accommodations include a continental breakfast (simple with healthy options) and a fantastic sandwich and salad menu for lunch, with enough of a selection to keep us happy for 2 weeks. With these services included, one did not need to leave this peaceful resort until dinner time if one so wished.

To top it all off, the professional staff were helpful in every way and friendly. Both the staff and the owners went out of their way to provide us with a comfortable and personalized experience.
