“Getting better with each visit”
Reviewed 28 October 2008

This was our fourth visit to Delight's over the past 4 years. It is an extremely peaceful and relaxing place. It is a wonderful base from which to go running, hiking, peak climbing, get a massage or just hang out and read a good book. Accommodations are modest, but they have been steadily improving over the years. This time, our motel unit had new furniture, new carpet, a new and super-comfy mattress on the bed and better lighting. Also, the hot pools are now closed to the general public after 11pm, so only overnight guests have access to them late at night. This has eliminated the late night traffic noise that once disrupted the tranquility of the place. The hot pools themselves have always been fantastic, and nothing has changed in that regard. They are clean and private and you feel like a million bucks after a 15 minute soak. Also, there's a little bistro just down the street where you can get the most unbelievably delicious food prepared by a world-class chef, right there in the middle of nowhere. Delight's is not fancy -- nothing in Tecopa is -- but it is wonderful and special in its own unique, quirky way. We can't wait to go back.

My DH and I were day-tripping from Las Vegas in a loop around part of Death Valley. We stopped at Delight's, and paid $10 each to enjoy the baths. The pleasant woman in the office provided us with towels , and advised us to shower prior to enter the baths, no swim suits allowed (suited us fine!). It was late morning in April, and all four of the baths were available for our use. We really enjoyed hopping from one to the other to compare the waters and the views. Two of the baths had open roofs, while the other two were screened. After bathing for over an hour, I enjoyed sitting on a lounge chair on the upper deck under the wide blue sky... extremely peaceful.

There were robes for sale, and the office smelled wonderful, like any expensive spa. They had candles, oils and the like offered for sale.

Very nice desert mural on the outer bath house wall.

Although the accommodations looked extremely rustic, I would love to book a room for a night or two to enjoy the night sky there.

Back once again for two nights at Delight's. Happily, the place is being upgraded. New paint in the baths (TWO of which are now open to the lovely night sky!), and new bath hours. The new office location is good, more convenient, the grounds are better maintained as well. Alas, the rooms are more expensive now, but at $25 a night for full hookups and unlimited bath use, the RV park is still a wonderful bargain. So happy to see Delight's alive and well!

Delights Hot Spa is an old and very rustic complex of cabin and rooms with kitchenetts. They are in need of maintance and cleaning. As they are the only accomadations in the Tecopa area you are at their mercy. They do have the largest private hot mineral baths in the area which is their main draw. Some will enjoy the baths enough to overlook the rooms others will be disappointed in the whole experence. All in all not what it is advertised to be.
