Hacienda Hot Springs Inn

I could write a book on how Karl makes you feel at home . But the short version is he knows how to help which is a unique talent. Once you walk in the gate the landscaped grounds you realize you are in for a special stay. I love the fact they have trees close to the pool and spa. it seems like you can always find shade if you're looking to avoid the direct sun. Chairs and lounges are plentiful and comfortable. Activities. Include horse shoes , chess table, lounge with tv . Plentiful fruit trees , limes, grapefruit ,and pomegranates. Sauna and massage services. Arisista was skillful in making you feel relaxed. this is the first time however I remember not having tight knotted muscles before the massage. I feel this is a result of the hot tub with the great jets some high for your neck and shoulders area some lower for your lower back and hip area. I've been to hundreds of jacuzzis over the years and normally the water isn't hot enough or the jets aren't strong enough. This was the best jacuzzi I've ever been in . The mineral water has a amazing ability to unwind your stiff and sore muscles.
We were in room 5 which had a king bed and kitchen. It was nice to have a refrigerator and gas stove. It also had a patio area that had a gate that could open to the adjoining rooms patio . A nice feature if youre coming with friends. The Hacienda is set up for grilling also . In the eating area there is a gas bar b que. which was used by some of the guests. The two times we came we enjoyed mingling with the guests. No kids which was nice. The limited number of rooms meant the pool was not crowded .
Weve been to most of the restaurants in Desert Hot Springs . Don't think they have gourmet eateries here because they don't. The sidewinders , South of the border, Rockys , Zapopan Mexican food,Casa Blanca (probably our favorite Mexican of the sit down variety),Kam Lun Chinese,their service was fine for us here. Good value at Kam Lun but average quality. We enjoyed the date shakes at the windmill market and restaurant . On this trip we tried the Mission lakes country club . This was our favorite restaurant . Go to Yelp ( a great food review app) if you want ratings on
the rest. If you want a quick sandwich their stater bros market has a deli . Nothing fancy but serviceable.
Sorry got sidetracked , We love knowing that the Hacienda is now our go to inn in the desert. Almost forgot to mention Sandra what a great welcoming , friendly , lovely person . Thanks Sandra for extra special service.

Room Tip: Not all the rooms that have kitchen have gas stoves . Room 5 has a gas stove. if you come with famil...

This place is fantastic. Me and my wife stayed here for our one year anniversary and the entire stay was perfect. Sandra checked us in and she was very friendly and helpful. She even gave us some champagne! The room was very nice and had a great atmosphere to it. The water was perfect and I fell in love with the sauna here. I talked to Karl the manager in the morning and he was very nice as well. The whole place feels very personal and relaxing.

We went for a girls day spa from 10am to 4pm. When we walked through the doors we knew we had chosen the right place. Karl greeted us and gave us a short history of the place. We enjoyed the hot tub which was hot and the warm pool all day. We walked the grounds and loved the small stream, fire pit, reading areas and fruit trees. We really enjoyed ourselves and will return.

Stayed for two nights of pure relaxation at Hacienda Hot Springs Inn, we were treated so wonderfully by Karl and Sandra it felt like we had our own hacienda paradise in the desert. The water is deeply therapeutic. The grounds are exquisite, amazing trees all around. I like shade near the pool, there was plenty all day. We never wanted to leave. We grilled at the property both nights and had a feast punctuated by great dips and glasses of vino. We moon bathed in the full moon and languished by the fire pit. I am so looking forward to returning and thinking of renting out the entire property for a group gathering...

We had a "girls" weekend at the Hacienda and it was fabulous! We booked all 6 rooms and had our own private retreat. My favorite was the outdoor kitchen and table and the luscious and spacious grounds. The surrounding area isn't the best, but once we walked through the gate at the Hacienda we never left until it was time to come home. The grounds are lovely and the staff excellent. Sandra and Karl were very accommodating and provided great service. I am ready to go back! This will definitely be a yearly event for all of us.

Relaxation, renewal, recharge in the healthy environment of the desert air. Cleanse your body and spirit in the thermal water pool and separate hot spa with crystal clean water you can drink from the tap. Gorgeous trees, bushes and flowers shade you from the sun once your tan is deep enough. Posturepedic mattresses support you during the night.
The staff is gracious and wants you to feel welcome.
No doubt about it, you will want to come back often

Hacienda Hot Springs Inn - that was:
Relaxing in a HOT pool.
Swimming with Gertrud the duck.
Cooking in an outdoor kitchen.
And dining under the stars.
An amazing intimate lush garden experience.
And the desire to stay forever.
