The best gay resort in Palm Springs

Tuesday, June 24th, 2014

I have stayed at many gay resorts in Palm Springs including all of the luxury properties but none of them compare with The Hacienda at Warms Sands. The resort is absolutely beautiful and has two separate pools at opposite ends of the property which was great. The rooms are beautiful and spacious and the bedding is superb. The resort is well maintained with gorgeous common areas and feels like a true sanctuary in a perfection location in Palm Springs. The complimentary breakfast and lunch was delicious and of high quality. A fresh and diverse breakfast buffet is served in the morning while you can order your lunch from an extensive menu and have it served in your room or by the pool. If you are looking for a stress free and extremely comfortable stay then this is the place for you. The other guests were all lovely people from a wide range of ages and were a mixture of couples and solo travelers like myself. The layout of the resort gives you both the opportunity to socialize with other guests as much as you like or alternatively if you need your own space that is easily achieved too. The staff were absolutely incredible. These people are true professionals and provided exceptional service at all times. Highly professional, courteous and friendly but also very approachable and down to earth. I originally booked three nights but stayed for over a week as the staff made me feel so welcome and relaxed. Im looking forward to my next stay there.

The perfect place to stay!

Tuesday, June 24th, 2014

We visited Palm Springs for the first time a couple of weeks ago and luckily picked The Hacienda for our accommodations….largely due to reviews from tripadvisor. It was a little more expensive than other choices, but you know the old saying, “you get what you pay for”! The staff was cheerful and friendly, not to mention very helpful with restaurant suggestions, reservations, and advice on things to do. The property was beautiful and peaceful. There are only 10 rooms, yet 2 full size pools to enjoy. Our room was large, well appointed, spotlessly clean, with a super comfortable bed. We enjoyed the continental breakfast and rich coffee poolside with new friends each morning. And then one of the best ideas ever….a catered lunch served either poolside or in your room each day. Who ever decided to do this is a genius! Delicious salads, sandwiches, or wraps that you choose at breakfast delivered directly to you. Think about it, after covering yourself with sunscreen and baking in the desert sun, who wants to interrupt their day by having to shower, get dressed, and go get something for lunch? It was the finishing touch that insures we will ONLY stay at the Hacienda when vacationing in Palm Springs. Hint: rent a car and go to Joshua Tree National Park.

Spectacular Hotel

Tuesday, June 24th, 2014

The Hacienda was a pleasent surprise. We stayed there by default since other hotels were full. The hotel has now become a favorite where we will stay in the future. The atmosphere is quiet and beautiful. The clientel were extremely friendly and we ended up having lunch with everyone by the pool every day. It was quite the find.

Another wonderful stay

Our second visit to the Hacienda was even better than the first. We are so impressed with the small details at this property–like the personalized embroidered pillows, and the lunch order slips pre-printed with our names. And when we told the staff we would be checking out at 5am to catch an early flight, they offered to have breakfast items put into our fridge the night before.

The high-end touches are fantastic–the towels with a pocket that slides over the top of the pool chairs so they don’t slide down, the L’Occitane en Provence bath products, and the ‘pillow menu’. It all feels luxurious without being fussy.

It’s quite a hike from our home in NYC, but so worth it. We look forward to coming back again and again.
