I am an Airline employee and as you would expect ,have extensively travelled the world, staying at mostly large well known hotels. I have always used trip advisor to get the views of places and hotels, before I go, to assist me in my choices of destinations and hotels.
I read about the Desert Riviera and this persuaded me to book a week.
On arrival at the hotel, what a nice change to be greeted by the owner (Larry) by our first names! He made checking in a pleasure after such a long journey ( assisted by a beer and some wine ).
The room was large with everything very "fresh" and tastefully decorated with a 50's theme. The bed was huge with a mattress comforter which was quickly used.
In the morning we opened the door and straight on to the pool area and the back drop of the Mountains, what a view.
Next day got our bearings thanks to advise from Larry, who then suggested some resturaunts. We chose mexican and Larry booked it all up for us. That night we were picked up by the stretched limo and taken to the resturaunt, got a great table, in full view of the live band. What a great night (Margartta's a speciality so make sure limo picks you back up). On coming back at night time the fire pit was alight and a few drinks and some good stories about how the day went was shared with Larry and Patti. Who could not have been better hosts.
Enjoyed so much we extended our stay.
