Amazing In Every Way!

Wednesday, March 20th, 2013

Five star all the way. Amazing service, friendly and courteous staff, luxurious rooms, easy walk to downtown, could not find one thing to complain about. Will certainly make a return visit. The pools and hot tub are heated and spotless. Breakfast and lunch are included and lunch is served either poolside or in your room. The beds are luxurious.

These Guys Get It Right!

Sunday, March 17th, 2013

I always say the formula for a great accommodation isn’t so difficult – only difficult to find. You want a clean (OK, spotless) room, a comfortable bed with good linens and plenty of pillows, you want more towels than you need, you want staff who are attentive and polite without being intrusive, and you ‘kinda want to feel important…even just a little. My partner and I stayed here in February and I have to say, the owners and staff at the Hacienda have it down. From helping with restaurant suggestions before we arrived to every little detail of the room and the service, they nailed it. We would recommend without hesitation and hope to return.

Best of the Best!

Sunday, March 17th, 2013

Out of all of the guest houses that I have stayed with over the years, the best gay guest house is The Hacienda at Warm Sands. The rooms are clean, the property is impeccable, the breakfast menu and catered lunch menu is delicious. I have to say that I am beyond impressed. The guest house staff, Jim and Maurice sent me a nice bottle of red wine in honor of my Birthday! You don’t have to worry about forgetting to tip the wonderful staff, because it is added to your stay! There are two pools and a 10-man hot tub, all of which is clothing optional. If you are shy about being naked, the clientele is generally more mentally mature than most places, so you don’t have to be naked if you don’t want to and no one will judge you otherwise.

The Mercedes Benz of Palm Sprigns Resorts!

Saturday, March 16th, 2013

I travel a LOT and I know what makes for good versus great lodging. This was our first visit to this resort, and we selected it since quality and service top their list of what’s important. The Hacienda delivers both. The grounds are beautiful and well-kept with tables and chairs, umbrellas, gathering areas, two pools, a spa tub, towel coverings for the pool loungers and spa towels in the rooms. There is a gorgeous view of the mountains from the pool area.

Our room was immaculate, tastefully decorated with quality furniture, and very functional. We liked the full kitchen, the dining and sitting area with a separate bedroom. It let us do some light entertaining out of the bedroom. We enjoyed the wine reception where we met other guests and enjoyed chatting with them each morning at breakfast. We do wish they had repeated the reception at least one or two times more during the week even without the owners. Meeting others was great.

The breakfast offerings were consistently varied, fresh and good. The chance to order lunch each day at no extra cost and have it delivered poolside or to our room was just great. One of us is vegan and this was accommodated. One day the catering service made an error on the order. The Hacienda staff, who were always friendly, caught the error as it came in, informed us and called the caterer. Within about 20 minutes, we had our correct lunches because one of the staff made a special trip to make it right. That’s service!!

There are some common small amenities in the room including fresh fruit, k-cup coffee options, and popcorn. There were some unusual offerings; two free passes to the Palm Springs Museum, a powered flashlight in case of a power outage, a pillow “menu” and spa type shower amenities among others.

The owners know how to do it and the staff care enough to make it right. We will be back.

Anniversary Trip

Saturday, March 9th, 2013

This was a repeat visit for us to The Hacienda and once again, it did not disappoint! We love it there! It is so intimate and comfortable with immaculate grounds and a beautiful view of the mountains from the pool. All of the staff is incredible and very attentive. It was our 20th anniversary and the owners, Jim & Maurice, could not have been kinder – they even had a bottle of champagne and a personalized card waiting for us upon arrival. We can’t wait to return and would highly recommend The Hacienda!

Another Great Stay at The Hacienda

Saturday, March 2nd, 2013

We had another wonderful stay at the Hacienda, earlier this month in February. We were lucky with perfect weather most of our stay, sunny and in the mid-70s. Immediately upon check in we received suggestions for local activities (there was a modernism exhibit going on in town) and other sites to see in Palm Springs. The rooms are very well appointed, tasteful, and very comfortable.

It is by far one one of the most relaxing and charming places we have ever stayed. The pools are beautiful (and lit at night) and the landscaping (even in their “winter”) is beautiful. The staff and other guests are very friendly but never intrusive. I can’t wait to book another trip back and see Steve, Paul, Luis and the rest of my friends at the Hacienda!
