Summary: Friendly, good location, well maintained, warm & inviting hosts, good price, kitchen in each room, comfortable bed, nice pool & hot tub, nicely landscaped, continental breakfast each morning, turtles & tortoises.
The TdS, is located at the south end of the downtown commercial area (restaurants & shopping) of Palm Springs. The resort was built in the 60’s (if my sun-saturated brain correctly recalls). It has about 12 rooms, mostly surrounding the central court yard where the pool and seating areas are located. There are a couple of rooms in the back for those who seek quiet. Décor is turtles, sun, and desert. Each room has a kitchen, which includes a refrigerator, microwave, stove, sink, and utensils. The rooms are comfortable but not ultra-modern, we had a pink bath tub – retro and fun.
The pool area is well landscaped with plenty of lounge chairs. This It is clothing-optional and there were a mix of clothing levels. TdS is a great place to relax and is not a cruisy resort. TdS is great for couples, singles, and groups who want a hospitable and convivial resort destination.
The owners, Rick & Rob are friendly and take the time to make sure your stay is enjoyable. They know the area well and can direct you to most any where you need to go. They even let me pick a grapefruit off their tree. We found the guests, like the owners, to be friendly. Ages ranged from 20’s-60’s. TdS is the type of resort where you can read quietly by pool in the morning and then go out to dinner with other guests.
I highly recommend the TdS and plan on staying there again.
