This was our first trip to Palm Springs and our first trip to Desert Eclipse. We already can't wait to go back.
Location: Desert Eclipse is perfectly situated just blocks from downtown and the grocery store. So if you want to be able to walk places, as we did, this place fits the bill.
Grounds: The grounds are beautiful and so well kept.There's a mix of trees and greenery on the grounds that really add some beauty to the pool area. The rooms create a u-shape around the pool and hot tub, which are both kept in pristine condition, and the sitting area out front of each room is really nice for just hanging outdoors.
The Room: We loved our room. The furnishing are modern and, as with everything, clean and top notch. The furniture is a dark wood, there are granite counter tops in the bathroom and the kitchen, and the beds are insanely comfortable. The rooms are stocked with basics in terms of dishes, pans, etc. Plus, there are Keurig coffee makers available in the common area by the pool that have about every flavor of coffee and tea you can imagine. In addition, they do a really nice continental breakfast in the morning.
The Owners/Staff/People: The owners and staff are friendly, helpful, and really make themselves available to you for anything you might need.
Other things to know: The resort is clothing optional. Different people obviously take this to different degrees, but I wouldn't consider this place cruising grounds. It's a really relaxing atmosphere where we really felt comfortable laying out/swimming in our trunks or nude, which we thought was great.
Overall, we really can't speak highly enough about this place.
