My partner and I have been trying different resorts to find the one that we feel most comfortable in. I personally have been going to Palm Springs for the past 8 years and have been to several different resorts.
Tortuga Del Sol is a nice resort in a good location. Its close to downtown Palm Springs and the gay area - Arenas where alot of the gay friendly restaurants and gay clubs are located. We have long since written off the Warm Sands resorts. They are just not for us with the exception of Hacienda, which is in a league of its own.
The resort itself is of course a bit dated, especially the rooms and baths. Perhaps others have been updated, but we didn't get one of them. The owners are very friendly and accomodating. I can't comment on the breakfast, but it looked similar to other resorts - continental breakfast.
OK now for the dirt. Like I said earlier the rooms could really use an update. The baths are very out dated. The picture of the room was a bit misleading in that is seemed larger in the photo that what it really was - good marketing though! My partner is sensitive to dust and unfortunately this room probably needed a good cleaning. The A/C probably had mold in it because he came down with a whopper of a sinus headache/cold and allergies by the end of our stay.
I'm sad to say this isn't the resort for us. Oh I forgot to mention the clientel ranges from 20's to 50's, but seem a bit more cruiser than than expected for a resort on San Lorenzo. So we will continue to look for a resort that keeps us interested in coming back.
