“The Perfect Relaxation Experience”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

Palm Springs offers many resorts...but this one is truly a paradise! Immaculate grounds and superior customer service combine to create a perfect place to relax. Ron is gracious and knows how to make a guest feel comfortable. The atmosphere with the relaxing music throughout the day and the elegant night lighting is perfect for those seeking something other than the "bath house" experience found at many other PS "resorts". I will definitely return!

Room Tip: Visit the website. The rooms are each themed. No "bad" locations.

Beautiful Grounds, Gracious Hosts, and Relaxing Atmosphere. Last week I returned home from the most enjoyable of vacations. When I first arrived, I was warmly greeted by the sweetest hunk of a man, Ron, and he had the overwhelming need to ensure that his guests are beautifully treated. The next day I met the owner, Dale, and he was sweet and friendly beyond belief. I was amazed how quickly Dale and Ron had the place straightened up after a sever wind storm on my third day there. The grounds and the rooms are clean and each room is named after a movie icon. The Joan Crawford Suite was delightful. Great pool and hot tub! The resort is close to excellent restaurants, shopping centers and bars. The continental breakfast hit the spot each morning and the company was even better. I like to travel on my own as i find it easier to meet others. This resort seems to attract some of the nicest fellows I've met in years. I definitely plan to return to palm Springs soon and will most definitely be booking a room at the Desert Paradise. This is a great place run by great guys. Love them both and I truly loved my vacation.

my second trip to the DP...for the Palm Springs Film Festival.... close to downton PS and great acess to the airport...gardens pools and landscaping are beautiful....only problem
is ...the doors to the sauna and steam room won't shut tight ...creates an inferior experience...
but the jacuzzi with the fire logs are great......staff is very helpful in every way...especially "Ron" ..enjoyed my walks into downton foe the festival as well...

Beautiful pool are and gardens. Facilities mediocre. Rooms average but above average compared to other resorts in the area.
The staff made the stay absolutely fantastic and couldn't do enough to help us.
Really lived the hotel and had we more time would have stayed longer.
Would definitely be my first choice if I returned.

We've stayed at Desert Paradise for many years running. We return because we like the calmness of the lush greenery, the koi fish, the turtles, and even the hummingbirds. The resort is always kept very clean and we appreciate stepping into our room where we feel like its been cared for. Over the years nice upgrades have been added to keep up with the rest of the resorts in the area, such as flat screen tvs, nice sinks in the bathrooms, and tile counters in most of the kitchen nooks.

Many of the clientele are very sociable and are return guests like us. The owner, Dale is quite a nice guy, very helpful and friendly. Ron is the main guy around this place, though; he's the manager who keeps all the guests smiling. Ron is never very far if you need something.

This is not your wild, happening place. Those are around the corner, right out side the door if you want to visit them. This is the place you come to relax, let your nerves calm down, take your clothes off (if you want), and unwind in a book or just hook into your ipod music by the pool. Some hot guys stay here to get away from it all, and they add a nice balance to the overall environment of everyone is welcome. You get a sense of community here, without any pretentious attitudes.

I stayed at Desert Paradise for three nights. The resort is somewhat small with only 12 guest rooms. I was given a complimentary upgrade upon arrival, which was a nice touch for a first time guest. The room was clean and comfortable. The property is marketed by stating that all bed linens, blankets, etc. are freshly washed for each stay. The steam room was tiny…just big enough for two people. A white towel was being used as a mat. The towel was dirty and soaked…not something I want to step on! A rubber mat would be a much better option. The dry sauna was inoperable and appeared to be that way for quite some time. The property also has several surveillance cameras, which felt a bit too intrusive…especially when three of them are monitoring the pool area. The complimentary self-serve breakfast was adequate and well stocked. The property had a couple of hammocks to lounge in as well, which was a nice touch. The various fountains and ponds, which included turtle and koi ponds, provided a soothing relaxed atmosphere. A honor-system snack bar in the office provided drinks and snacks for a dollar which was a nice touch. All in all, the resort was a very nice place. The owner is constantly working on various upgrade projects which is intended to keep the resort current and comfortable. Also, the central air was a nice thing to have considering that many of the other resorts in Palm Springs still provide only window units which are typically loud and don’t cool the rooms adequately.

Stayed here with a friend for 3 nights in August. The place is affordable for Palm Springs but is kinda "old fashioned", a little on the tacky side and has a "dull" feeling to it ?
The breakfast was very nice, plenty of choice and the kitchen area was very clean, top marks for that.
Upon check in the owner was showing us how to use the TV system they had installed but kept jumping to the porn channels by "mistake" and it was sort of creepy to say the least. The room did have a flat screen TV but the channels available were basic at best and a lot of them did not come through clear at all.
The room was painted a drab dark beige which made it look dark and dingy. The furniture was old and the overall feel was not very uplifting for Palm Springs ? The fridge was really old, rusty and very noisy at night. The shower head did not work properly and they needed a little bleach to remove the mold in the caulking on the floor area. Don't get me wrong, the place was generally pretty clean and I did feel comfortable staying there.
Hey look, if you are looking for somewhere cheap to stay and are not looking for an exciting environment (Enya playing all day long) with any frills then this place will be ok. I am certain that for a few bucks more there is something better close by.

Ddawursk, Owner at Desert Paradise Gay Men's Resort, responded to this review, 17 November 2011
Hey Guys, I just wanted to say thank you for the review, it's open honest opinions that help us to give our guest a better experience. Sorry but I didn't intend to make you feel creepy about showing you the Channels, my intention was to show you the CCTV, Welcome to Paradise Video and yes there are those "entertainment channels in between". So you know we've expanded out Cable Channels to HD and have over 70 stations to choose from now. The "Enya" music is played througout the day becuase there is no one type of music that makes everybody happy and with today's technology so many people have there Ipods and other devices. Our music played to enhance your relaxation and comfort. As far as the showers go thank you for pointing that out. We try very hard to maintain very clean rooms and impeccable lush gardens. We will continue to work on exceeding our guest expectation and hope you to see you back in Paradise soon.
