“Worth a second chance”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2013

On the one hand, we have to be grateful to A Place in the Sun because they had a room for us at a very busy time of year in PSP. But...it was a room that seemed squeezed out of extra space at the back of the property. It was hard to move around the queen sized bed because of lack of space in the sleeping area (not a separate room), and the bathroom was smaller than was convenient, comfortable or functional. The only place to put luggage or clothes was on furniture in the living room area.

The property is worth another visit, as long as we request another room, because the hosts are very nice and the pool/common area is very inviting. The location near--but not too near--downtown Palm Springs was great.

I had a great weekend getaway with friends and will be be going back. The rooms are very clean and the services were great. We had fun in the pool and there was a shaded area and misting.The only thing that was missing was an ice machine.

Room Tip: book as early as possible.

We have visited A Place In The Sun for several years now, and keep coming back! We love that it has quiet and peaceful grounds, salt water heated pool and the bungalows are roomy and spotlessly clean. The main office provides a continental type breakfast each day and they have a treasure trove of movies you can play on the CD player in the room if you just want to kick back and relax. A barbeque area surrounds the pool if you want to cook your dinner outdoors and is also pet friendly! The staff is courteous, friendly and very helpful! Can't say enough great things about this hotel, love it and will keep returning!!

This is the second year that we have rented the entire 'A Place in the Sun' out to celebrate a friends birthday. The bungalows surround the pool and makes for the perfect group meeting place. The bungalows are very home like and fit the needs of our group. We even baked a birthday cake! Joe at the front desk if very friendly and accommodating. Ron and Norma are wonderful also. You can see the pride of ownership in the place. Each bungalow is unique and fully stocked with anything you would need. Personal wireless also makes it a place where you can relax and work (if there is such a thing...). Some patios have private Jacuzzis. The pool funiture is comfortable and padded and the side tables are also coolers. We have already booked for next summer...

We found this location by doing a Google search for pet friendly hotels. We were pleased to find this unique place at the base of the mountains near downtown Palm Springs. We rented a one bedroom with kitchen and daybeds in the living room for one or two children to easily sleep in. I really enjoyed the heated salt water pool and poolside breakfasts. My son enjoyed the small putting green. If you want privacy you will love it here.

Our 12 year olds loved this boutique hotel. The salt water pool was great and it was nice that the bedroom area is completely separate from the livingroom. like a minihouse. Highly recommend and we will be back :)

What a beautiful place a Place in the Sun is with its magnificent gardens and salt water pool. It takes you back to another time period! If you are looking for a place with peace and serenity, you have come to the right place. The bungalow was pristine and the staff was wonderful along with the resident kitty, Shadow! If you are looking for a place that is quiet and beautiful, you have found it. It was a perfect place for us to have a quiet place to paint! We can't wait to come back at Christmas!
