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.
