I went with a group of 4 not really doing all too much research on El Morocco before my arrival. We were lucky to book during a slow season and pretty much had the place to ourselves! A quick glance into their website and I was immediately captivated. Upon our arrival, Steve, Bruce & John couldn't have been more accommodating....

From the moment we arrived and were greeted by the smiling proprietors, we knew we were in for a great time. The hotel is beautifully appointed. The designer's careful attention to detail and authenticity have created a Moroccan oasis in the California desert. The location sits on a natural desert hot spring, which feeds the pool and jacuzzi and provides...

I arrived to the Inn on Thursday, exhausted, stressed out, really rough around the edges from overwork, kids, etc....knowing I needed some time just to recoup. I live and work in Palm Springs and couldnt get too far away. As soon as I walked through those doors I was transported far away to a whole new world. Bruce and Steve...

Driving through the desert that surrounds Desert Hot Springs does not encourage much hope that the El Morroco Inn and Spa would be so very special. But, from the first step inside the door, the desert falls away, and the guest enters an almost enchanted environment - colors and textures capture one's eye - this is a jewel of an...

We were greeted at the door when we arrived -- like old friends, and it was our first time there. Great service and attention to detail.

Driving into the residential neighborhood you may have some doubts or wondered if you took a wrong turn. But have no fear....Entering into El Morocco Inn is like transporting across the Atlantic to Northern Africa. Fantastic adornments and decorations add to the relaxing ambience. The rooms are to die for with wonderful fabrics, colors and beautiful authentic furniture. The pool...

Me and my girlfriend absolutely loved this place. The decoration of the whole place is just meticulous and wonderful. What makes this place special is the hospitality of the owners who were very kind, helpful, and friendly. If you are looking for some place private, less crowded, and adult only type of inn, then this is it. The place is...

Everything is true! From the moment of walking in you are immersed in a big wave of exotic comfort, hospitality and peaceful sensory pleasure. Bruce and his brother are the definition of good hosts, and it is clear that the Inn is a labor of love. Attention to detail is evident everywhere. There wonderful restaurants nearby and we ordered take-out...
