Astonishing level of comfort and care from staff at a wonderful resort hotel.

Wednesday, February 20th, 2013

It was our first stay at the Hacienda in January 2013. We had booked the special offer of 4 nights for the price of 3 and we were delighted with the spacious and well-provided Grand Deluxe apartment. There are two pools at the Hacienda and we loved the front pool with its views of the mountains and easy access to the hot-tub. The pool was perfectly heated and a pleasure to swim in. Locals reported it was one of the coldest Januaries on record, however we had just arrived from London so the balmy 68-70 degree daytime temperatures were fantastic for us. Evenings were cold – dipping down to almost freezing – so come prepared. The peace and tranquillity of those 4 nights stayed with us the whole trip to the USA. The staff were incredibly courteous, helpful and obliging laying out delicious breakfasts and lunches each day (all included in your room rate). The other guests were delightful too. I would unreservedly recommend the Hacienda and we can’t wait for a return trip. We walked to the restaurants and bars most evenings although cabs are easy and inexpensive. The staff will be happy to help you make your choices and if you want a night in, there is an extensive DVD library to choose from.

First Time to Palm Sprigns

Saturday, February 16th, 2013

The Hacienda was the perfect choice for my first stay in palm springs. The staff could not do enough to make me comfortable, the room (unasked for upgrade) was well appointed, spotless and inviting, the grounds and pools beautifully maintained. If I mentioned even casually I had an interest in a Palm Springs activity; computer printed info was delivered to my poolside chaise within 30 minutes of mentioning it. There are only 10 rooms, 5 around each pool….personally I liked that. the ‘craziness’ is close enough if the mood should strike, but I loved this seemingly private oasis in the midst of it all. I would definitely go back!

Quiet Getaway

Saturday, February 16th, 2013

The Hacienda is unarguably the most high end of the gay guest houses in Palm Springs. The whole experience is first class. The grounds are green and flowered, there are two swimming pools. Breakfast and lunch are included in the room rate with good menus. The room I had, which I understand is the smallest, was room 8. The room was very large: sofa, two televisions, king bed, dining table, desk, private patio and a huge bathroom. The room was very clean. But what I will most remember is the really warm and welcoming staff. They are so helpful, and tips are not accepted.

Palm Springs Attractions

Thursday, February 7th, 2013

It started, we think, with Marilyn – first the 2011 movie, ‘My Week With Marilyn’, and then Marilyn arrived in Palm Springs last May. The 26 foot tall sculpture by American artist Seward Johnson was inspired from the film ‘The Seven Year Itch’. Marilyn’s presence has kindled a new thrill in the City, adding to the swelling buzz coming from the significant array of world-class events for which Palm Springs is now famous, including the Palm Springs International Film Festival, Modernism Week, Palm Springs Art Museum special exhibits, among many others.

Our Anniversary Stay At The Hacienda

Monday, February 4th, 2013

The Hacienda is a very well maintained, higher end resort in Palm Springs. We have stayed in several resorts on our many trips to Palm Springs but The Hacienda will now be our only resort! There just isn’t any reason to go anywhere else. The rooms are decorated very tastefully and very well furnished. The bathroom remodel looks very recent and very inviting. Even though it rained half the time we were there, we didn’t mind staying in the room because it was so nice and the hot tub was just a few steps from our door. Anyone visiting this resort will not be disappointed.
