We totally agree with the previous review by Barb_and_John on Sea Mountain Inn (SMI). We too booked with the expectation of a great resort based on presentation and information from SMI website. Instead, SMI is nowhere near what it's portrayed. Having been to both Desire resorts in Mexico and Grand Lido resorts in Jamaica, the price one pays for an overnight or day pass at SMI is very expensive in comparison and definitely NOT upscale. Much of this tiny resort is dated and the furnishing run down. Essentially, it felt like going into someone's backyard.
SMI also advertises a delicious lunch, but all you get is some flavored fried rice, chips, and solids. And the menu does not change from day to day. On top of that you are on your own for dinner - either go out for dinner nearby or call in from a takeout menu.
This is definitely not an all-inclusive resort but one pays close to all-inclusive resort price. We must also note that we, and others we know of, have posted our less than stellar comments on other forums - Yahoo and SMI's own - but have never had our comments show up, which lead many of us to think something's suspicious as to who's modulating those forums.
Nonetheless, if you're looking for a place for nude suntanning and have some erotic fun while in Palm Springs, this is perhaps the only place to be. That's ONLY why we give it a "most likely" recommendation. Otherwise, don't expect much more.
