A touch of Class

Tuesday, July 24th, 2012

Located in the heart of Warm Sands, this quaint, classy, clothing option men’s resort is a fabulous destination to escape the big city life. The typical guests are couples/partners, close friends, and professional singles. The sexual temperature tends to be on the cold side, which allows you to read a book poolside, sun bathe, or nap without being subjected to public sex acts. There are no sex labyrinths, glory holes, dungeons, or steam rooms to cruise. But don’t let the lack of debauchery turn you away from this little gem. The neighboring resorts known for their play areas are just steps away, literally.

Your stay includes a complimentary continental breakfast and lunch. Each room contains a personalized gift basket that includes bottled water, fruit, and assorted snacks.

The staff members are cheerful, helpful, personable, and very attentive. The newly remodeled rooms are cleaned daily and are immaculate! The common area has a bulletin board that contains a list of things to do while visiting Palm Springs and displays happy hour times, and special events that are occurring at the local bars.

My stay was amazing and can be best described as rejuvenating! I will definitely be staying here again.

I highly recommend The Hacienda.

Excellent vacation in Palm Springs”

Saturday, July 21st, 2012

It’s difficult to write anything that has not already been said about the place, but we also had a wonderful stay at The Hacienda. Everything was above “top of the line” with our stay. We stayed here for four nights around the 4th of July and wish we could have stayed longer. Our room (Jr. Suite #8) was very large and extremely comfortable. The bed was excellent, the room was very quiet, and we slept through the night, every night. The bathroom was huge, and had a big open window out to a private patio, which let in a lot of light. A refrigerator, microwave, sink, glasses, dishes, and everything else you could want or need was included in the kitchen area. In addition, they included a personalized welcome basket with snacks that was waiting for us when we arrived.

The grounds are immaculate with beautiful foliage that is extremely well maintained and landscaped. You will see some wildlife including a lot of hummingbirds on the property! You won’t go hungry staying at The Hacienda – there were a lot of choices at breakfast, and we really enjoyed the daily lunch. As some other reviewers had mentioned, if you are not on the property when lunch is served, they will wrap it for you and leave it in your refrigerator. We had ours for dinner one evening along with a bottle of wine, which worked out perfectly.

If you’re not familiar with Palm Springs, the property is located on a quiet residential street, close to other gay resorts but once inside it feels like a private oasis. It’s a great location since you can walk to bars, restaurants and shops in downtown Palm Springs in about 20 minutes.

We were there at the end of June/early July, and we were concerned about the heat. It was hot – around 105+ during our stay, but it was never felt oppressive, since the humidity was low. It was perfect weather to sit by one of the two (remarkably clean) pools!

As others have mentioned, all of the staff are remarkable. As others have mentioned, there was nothing they could not help with, and gave excellent recommendations on activities in the area. All of the managing staff and housekeeping staff were friendly and helpful. Both Steve and Paul were exceptional and made our experience a wonderful stay.

Hacienda never disappoints, always over-delivers on value!

Saturday, July 21st, 2012

My first two stays at The Hacienda occurred before current proprietors, Jim and Maurice, purchased the property. I was impressed enough by my first stay to book a second. But, Jim and Maurice improved and have continually enhanced the guest experience to the degree that I just completed my 14th stay at their resort. Jim and Maurice, and their dedicated staff, maintain a top-caliber experience that perfectly balances style and attentiveness with relaxation and comfort. Although the overall high quality of The Hacienda has remained the consistent over the decade-plus that I have been a repeat guest, each time I arrive I notice some enhancement or improvement. From the front gate to the pools, and the landscaping to the guest rooms, The Hacienda always appear fresh and immaculately maintained. The service never falters, and the inclusion of breakfast and lunch, mixed with the high space- and staff-ratio to number of guests make it the best dollar value in Palm Springs. Over the course of the years, I’ve occasion to visit friends staying in other area resorts. None comes close to delivering what the Hacienda does. And when those same friends have dropped by to see me, they immediately remark that their next Palms Springs stay will be at The Hacienda.

4th of July

Saturday, July 21st, 2012

I would like everyone to know that the Hacienda is truly a CLASS ACT. From the time we arrived on July 3 we were greated by Tom. He made sure we had everything that we needed and to let him know how he can make this visit even better. As we walked into our room I noticed that on the Kiing Bed were pillows with each of our names on them. What a very nice way to say thank your for staying with us again. They always provide a great light breakfast along with a wonderful lunch by the pool side. Ths gounds are always clean and wonderfully landscaped. The pools are blue as the sky and the water is just right. We watched the fireworks from the pool side and then relaxed for the night.

Thank you Jim, Maurice and Staff for again making our stay as wonderful as you did. We will be BACK !

One of the most enjoyable stays in a hotel

Sunday, July 8th, 2012

5 exclusive apartments sharing a pool- what more can I say- very special.
Loved our 1 bedroom ( rm 7)
I can only endorse the Tucson Bboftx review written before this one.
highly recommended. Order the lunch and they will put in the fridge.
Pls take the aerial tramway and walk to Mt San Jacinto in the Jeffrey pine , sugar pine and fir tree forest. Also walk the Ryan mountain trail in Joshua Tree (a must).

Life is short and you deserve this!

I drove over from Tucson, Arizona at first and spent three wonderful nights at the Hacienda, just relaxing and enjoying the pampered, luxurious ambiance. Then, could not wait to go back again, a month later. The next time it was for four equally wonderful days and nights. I had one of the larger suites with separate dining, sitting, sleeping and bath areas. The small kitchen is perfect for me because I like to sit by the pool in the evening and eat a light meal rather than go out to a restaurant. At the Hacienda, that is a perfect match. Some places do not have in-suite refrigerator nor a small kitchen area for preparation of small meals, so they are off my radar. The housekeeping at Hacienda is perfect with attention to every detail. And the bath and body products by L’Occitane are a perfect high-end luxury additional touch. Breakfast variety is perfect and where else can you find a complementary lunch included?! It just doesn’t get any better than the Hacienda at Warm Springs.

Relaxing days in Palm Springs

Wednesday, July 4th, 2012

My partner and I spent 3 nights at the Hacienda. We were recommended by an acquaintance, but realized that the hotel was #1 in Trip Advisor (theme hotels). It was fantanstic, very relaxing. The crew was very helpfull at all times. The property is really nice, the pool and the gardens.

We stayed in the Patio room, which is the smallest, but one enjoys a lot of privacy there since it is a bit offto the side. The size was really good, it was really confortable and we really had a fantastic, relaxing time there.
