“Amazing”
Reviewed 6 October 2011

We booked A Place in the Sun for a 3 night stay as part of a trip in 2010. I chose this place after reading the many positive reviews on TA.

Suffice to say that we loved it so much, met some fabulous friends who meet up here on an annual basis, we just had to return this year to repeat the experience,

We booked 7 nights this time in a one bedroom unit and were very happy with the accommodation. Beds were comfy, fully equipped kitchen, nice sitting area with dining table and chairs and our own little back garden to sit in. Rooms are cleaned on a daily basis, Rosario took very good care of us and I think she does a full spring clean on a daily basis. Big thanks to Rosario.

Pool towels are supplied and can be exchanged at reception area. Continental breakfast is available at reception for those who wish to use it.

The landscaping is beautiful, the garden pool has the added benefits of mister system; nice sun beds a Jacuzzi and mini golf. The gazebo is supplied with daily newspapers for guests and you can use the BBQ if you wish.

We made full use of it on the Saturday and incredible array of food was produced by all the friends in the group.

It was lovely to come back; we were so touched that Kyle actually remembered us from last year. He was just great, helped us in with all our bags and seemed genuinely pleased to see us. He is a really nice man, totally unintrusive but more than happy to help out with local information or spend a few minutes having a chat with you if you want.

This is such a brilliant place that we rarely left the premises last year and this year was no different.

Really hoping we can go again next year.

We have been coming to A Place in the Sun for 5 years. We find it the most welcoming and friendly 'home away from home'. The cottages are super clean/comfortable, the salt water pool sparkling, and staff most attentive. Close to downtown Palm Springs and all it has to offer.You won't be disappointed.

A Place in the Sun is our new favotire place! My husband took me for a romatic birthday weekend - away from all the hustle and bustle. Our dog was able to come along, which was a huge selling point, as they accept pets for only $15 a night! We were thrilled.

This was our first visit and it was a holiday weekend, so we were not sure what to expect. When we entered the courtyard we met our next door neighbors that were staying for a week - they were so friendly and over the course of the weekend we met several other new friends. It was far from crowded and very relaxing.

Love the salt water pool and jaccuzi! They even provide beach towels! - The pool area never closes as long as everyone is respectful with the noise level.

They have a great BBQ area under the gazebo. I had made kabobs one night and we grilled up steaks another night. The kitchens make is so easy to bring your own food. They also offer continential breakfast in the office from 9-5 during the Summer months.

Our dog loved the private garden back yard - He had fun rolling around in the grass. There is also a good walking area and bike path just outside of the grounds. Perfect for walking your dog.

We are heading out again next week! We look forward to visiting many more times to come!

My wife and I usually travel to palm springs about twice a year. By far our favorite hotel that we have stayed at is A Place in the Sun. The rooms have everything you need, including a fridge, small sink/range, outdoor patio, air conditioning, comfortable beds, and great value. The hotel manager is extremely friendly and responsive to any needs. A Place in the Sun is also pet friendly. The pool and hot tub are fantastic and the hotel grounds are impeccably groomed.

We highly recommend A Place in the Sun!

We found "A Place In The Sun" on-line and made an inquiry via email. We received a response right away from Kyle who was more than accomodating. He answered all our questions and was very personable. We arrived for the Labor Day weekend and were pleasantly surprised! The place is so adorable with the bungalows all surrounding the fresh saltwater pool. The palm trees have misters and there is a large community bbq and tables for guests to make dinner and have drinks with friends into the evening. We met several other couples and everyone was easy-going and friendly. They even have a putting green! The best part about it is that it's pet friendly! We loved our bungalow, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay! We plan to be back and recommend it to all our friends. We look forward to the next stay in the desert and seeing Kyle again.....he's terrific!

Room Tip: All the rooms surround the cozy saltwater pool, you can't get a bad location!

To me it is a very valuable place to stay. Here, where we relax. Bungalows are kept very well. Pool site is like your own back yard. Location of the place is surrended by mountains and palm trees. Guests are very pleasant, and just like us they come to this place over and over. It is a mile away from Palm Springs strip. Great restaurants and shops. If you don't want to eat out, there is a bbque by the pool, and convenient all day long for your out-cook. I cherish this place, because Norma and Ron Wan Meeteren(owners), and Kyle Gomez (operation-manager) does whatever it takes to make your retreat perfect.
