“Deluxe without being fussy.”
Reviewed 27 December 2013

We were welcomed sincerely by Carl and the staff and felt much like family. The other guests made it very relaxed with casual conversation too; very laid back...yet we felt like minor celebrities. Awesome oasis-like property with nooks and a tinkling stream... But the cozy room with the king bed was hard to leave after our afternoon nap. Topper for our stay was the hot tub and pool. Nothing like looking at the stars while you float!

My daughter and I were searching for the perfect location to relax, unwind, and be quiet. Hacienda Hot Springs offered us all of that, plus more. This very quiet and rustic inn is just that and more...very small, intimate inn surrounded by absolutely gorgeous, well maintained gardens. The room (3) we had was small, simply decorated, but comfortable and had a very limited, but more than adequate kitchenette, and a roomy private patio. Karl, Vanessa and Sandra were very friendly, and welcoming and they made our stay even more enjoyable. I highly recommend this Inn for people who seek peace and quiet, and simplicity.

My wife and I had a wonderful, relaxing time at Hacienda Hot Springs. This is an amazing place to spend a night, a weekend, a week, or more. Karl is an excellent manager and Sandy and Ray keep the grounds immaculate. There are only six rooms, so it's never crowded. It's just the right size to get to know other guests if you feel like being sociable, but you can have total privacy when you want. The rooms are comfortable and the kitchens have what you need if you want to eat in. The back patios provide a nice private spot to relax, but the pool and the whirlpool are where we spent much of our time. Just before we left, we spoke with a newly-arrived couple who commented on how relaxed we were. Come and find out for yourself what an amazing place this is. You will love it. We are recommending a visit to Hacienda to all our friends and highly recommend a visit for you!

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 5. Room 2 doesn't have a rear patio and Room 7 doesn't have a stove, but...

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...
