“Exceptional Relaxation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2013

This is our favorite weekend retreat. As we enter the beautiful courtyard, we can feel the stress melt away. The place is well maintained, the staff and guests are friendly and the mountain view is breathtaking. So very, very relaxing and always a treat. We never feel like leaving and always start planning our next visit right away. It's in a very quiet, convenient location too!

Room Tip: Check the website and select your preference. Can't go wrong. Some have private patios.

We came to this lovely hotel with friends and family for my 50th birthday party. The staff was very friendly and the location can't be beat. The grounds are beautiful and the rooms spacious. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to come again soon!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at A Place In The Sun. From the moment we arrived, Ron and Norma accommodated our every need and want. The resort is so peaceful we spent most of our days simply soaking up the sun's rays poolside. We stayed in a one bedroom bungalow, and it was so spacious and well furnished that we felt right at home and had very little desire to even leave our little love nest. The resort is walking distance to the heart of downtown Palm Springs, so we were able to do anything the town had to offer without much fuss. We have decided to make a trip to APITS every winter because it truly is the ideal vacation.

Wonderful place to relax. Charming bungalows with everything one needs for a prolonged stay. The gardens are beautiful, and the owners very helpful in any way you ask. Very close to downtown and many delightful restaurants. I shall return.

A very comforting place from the minute you enter the office. Whether a short stay ( unfortunately our stay was too short ) or a longer one the location could not be better and the gardens and pool relax you although the putting green was a test. The house was bright and airy with lovely views. We will be back for a longer stay.
Alex.

This will be our regular Palm Springs home away from home! The dogs loved it, we loved it, even my mom loved it when she stopped in for a visit. Just like home! Everything is easy going, no stress, beautifully maintained and the staff is always helpful and friendly. Just let Ron or Norma know if there's anything amiss, like a burnt out light bulb, and before you know it the bulb has been replaced. The rooms are clean, fresh and well maintained. Relax, enjoy the grill, the pool, the spa and forget the outside world for just a little bit. You won't regret it!

Room Tip: If you travel with dogs, get a garden patio. The extra space for them not only gives them their own...

But we just can't and we must share the news about this fabulous little gem of a resort. We are very well travelled but first timers to this resort which included our 2 labs who were made to feel very welcome.

Early 50's hotel which has been painstakingly restored with original detailing but modernized where it counts, extremely clean, quiet and our 1 bdrm cottage had a huge back yard that made fido yell woof woof!

Norma and Ron were the perfect hosts and even offered us free admission to some of PS venues, they just made everything so easy what a delightful couple!

Large fluffy towels, top of the line bedding, large salt water pool and hot tub with very nice evening mood lighting what else could you wish for.

The other guests were also well travelled and friendly but not in your face and who could afford to stay anywhere but no pretentions or stuffyness that some other resorts in PS have.

Private and secure compound and I could have sworn I heard Desi,Lucy and little Ricky by the pool, if you love that kind of cool vibe you have to stay here.

We will return for an extended vacation next winter because we have finally found the perfect place for us and our pooches.

Room Tip: We had room 10 which had a huge backyeard that got the sun all day
