“Paradise in the Springs”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

The owners Norma and Ron are wonderful people. They accommodated my girlfriend & I on short notice and exceeded our expectations with their hospitality. Rooms are nice & spacious, pool was refreshing, and the fact that our bungalow had it's own kitchen was a major plus. We will definitely be going back. If you're looking for a relaxing getaway, this is your place.

Room Tip: Bungalows are the best way to go.

I was greeted with a warm smile! I arrived early to find my room cool and waiting for me! I was given a warm welcome! The pool was very clean and so was the surroundings! Wonderful place to read a book and kick back and relax! I didn't even need a beach towel, one was provided for me upon check in! NICE! I even bbq'd! Everyone was so friendly! I definitely plan on going back!! Thank you Norma and Ron!!!

Room Tip: All rooms are great!

We did another vacation at A Place in the Sun, it is as good as ever. Friendly staff and guests, clean rooms and grounds. Very relaxing. Close to downtown but far enough to be quiet. We walk to town to eat , drink etc.

Room Tip: Get a room with a yard if you can.

We have been coming to A Place In The Sun for over 10 years now. Year over year it gets better and better.
The garden property is lovely and friendly + pet friendly. The grounds are well kept. The saline pool and Jacuzzi are stunning and the misters make every month in the desert beautiful.
The lobby unit is adorable and well stocked with coffee, a variety of teas, lots of really good dvds and the friendliest, warmest staff ever.
The rooms are super clean and well equipped with coffee, filters, pot pans cups plates and everything you want in a kitchenette. There are plenty of plugs for charging devices. Beautiful flat screen tvs and ez to use dvd player. Ceiling fans and A/C that work great and super comfortable beds. It bares repeating very clean.
I long to return to A Place in the Sun every time....

We have just returned from our third stay at "The place in the sun" and again it lived up to all our expectations. It really is like being at home but warmer and with a pool and Jacuzzi. The bungalows are fully equipped to enable you to cook complete meals if you wish. The owners Ron and Norma make you feel very welcome but do not impose themselves on you if you wish to be left alone, and provide breakfast cereals and pastries in the office if you want them along with slices of cake for afternoon tea! Everything is beautifully maintained and any problems instantly sorted. We will be back.

Norma took care of my reservation, and she was extremely pleasant.
I arrived at the hotel past 8:30pm, so the office was already closed. Norma had left an envelope with the instructions to get my keys, which were simple to follow.

The room was perfect (I chose the studio for only one night). It had the kitchenette, which made breakfast simple (I didn't know there was coffee and cereal at the office).

The bed was comfortable, the room and bathroom were clean, and the whole atmosphere seemed serene.

The A/C was extremely noisy and the room is super bright in the morning. If you are sensitive to light, you need something to cover your eyes.

Overall a good experience, but nothing outstanding.

Been going to A Place in the Sun for 12 plus years and have never been disappointed! It's quiet and comfortable and so nice that dogs are welcome, too! One of the best-kept secrets in Palm Springs!!!!
