Nicer Than We Needed

Tuesday, June 26th, 2012

I stayed at The Hacienda with my partner in September of 2011. We stayed in one of the largest suites, and it was truly luxurious. It had a beautiful kitchen, separate dining and living areas. Everything was beautifully designed and appointed. Duel shower heads were an added luxury!

It’s a small and cozy place with two pools, each pool surrounding by a handful of units. It never gets crowded there.

The staff to guest ratio was impressive. Plenty of people there to cater to your needs.

I will say, though, that there are many small men’s resorts in the area that have the same quality pools, view of the mountains, and close access to points of interest, and just a little less luxury in the unit, for much less money.

It was very nice, but next time, we’ll probably head back to some of the less expensive places, because it just wasn’t THAT much nicer.

They Get Everything Right!

Tuesday, June 26th, 2012

This was my 2nd stay at The Hacienda and I was keeping my fingers crossed it would be as nice as my first. Happily, it was better!

First of all, Palm Springs is just a magical place to begin with. I live on the east coast so coming to Palm Springs is a true retreat. And staying at The Hacienda adds to the experience in all the best ways possible.

I’ve stayed at other gay resorts in both Palm Springs and Ft Lauderdale. Nothing compares to the Hacienda. The Hacienda is the Four Seasons of gay resorts – it simply is the best, they get all the details right.

. beautiful rooms: the rooms are spacious, tastefully decorated, super comfortable beds, nice flat screen tvs, great kitchenettes – the rooms truly feel like a home away from home
. the bathroom: incredibly spacious, amazing bath products and a shower you could stay in forever. The showers have dual shower heads with wall panel water jets – it’s an experience like no other.
. the service is beyond 4 star: they provide an amazing, tasteful breakfast spread, local newspapers plus the NY Times are available are available each and every morning, AND they provide lunch for guests at poolside – everyday! Delicious sandwiches, wraps, salads – it’s really delightful. In addition the staff is so helpful and friendly to set up anything you need whether you need a taxi, reservations, etc..Also, daily housekeeping is incredibly thorough. Housekeeping is simply not a fluff-and-fold of your towels and bed linens, the staff really cleans each and every day and they take their time. So refreshing.

Fantastic in Every Way!!! Thank you Hacienda!!!

Monday, June 11th, 2012

My partner and I just returned from a 4 day stay at The Hacienda to celebrate our 11 year Anniversary and my Birthday. I cannot state strongly enough the attention to customer service and attention to detail that we received from the moment we entered the doors!
This is Hospitality the way it is meant to be!
It is only when you experience a business like this that you realize so many other hotels and business’s in general are falling short with customer service!
This was a gem of a find and will most likely become a regular retreat for my partner and I.
The location is great! Rooms are great! Grounds are great! The standout staff mamber by far was Steve! Thank you to the owners for a trip to not be soon forgotten!

Dream Vacation

Monday, June 11th, 2012

This was our tenth stay, and like all the past stays, it was perfect. It is so relaxing, beautiful, and peaceful here that you might find it hard to leave. Since breakfast and a nice sandwich and salad lunch selection are included in your stay, you really do not have to leave until dinner time.

So we hardly do, and instead relax by the two pools. Each pool provides its own unique environment and view. It is a tough choice to make each day, but you will work it out. Inside, the well appointed rooms in earth tones colors are relaxing and comfortable and provide shelter if you find you must be indoors for a while.

Over the years we have met some very nice people. In general the hotel attracts middle aged professional couples that are looking for some well needed down time. Most people keep to themselves, but friendly conversations occur and everyone seems to respect your need to socialize or not.

The staff has become like old friends to us. They take care of business and make you feel like you’re a guest at their special little piece of paradise which feels more like a home than a hotel. Over the years the staff has changed very little which says a lot, and each time we return a new improvement or upgrade has been made. Owners Jim and Maurice do not rest on the hotel’s excellent reputation, they are continuing to try to improve upon it, if that is possible.

As expected, I am dreaming about being there as I am writing this review. Do not miss out.

Outstanding Stay in Palm Springs

Saturday, June 2nd, 2012

An exceptional find in Palm Springs. The rooms are well appointed and the staff is exceptional from check-in to the outstanding lunches. I can honestly say that this is one of the finest resorts that I have ever stayed at. We are already planning a return visit next year.
