See What Our Guests Say!

Dear Dale and Ron:

It is only 40 degrees in Chicago, a poor comparison with life at your wonderful quarters.   So I am all the more grateful for your hospitality.   We departed Palm Springs two hours late because the pilot had injured himself, and they had to bring in a substitute from Las Vegas.  Even so, I was home by 9:00 PM and am beginning to get my act together, although I'm not completely unpacked yet.

So now to contemplate my next visit with you!




Like staying with friends. Dale, Ron and the rest of the Desert Paradise Staff make your stay at the resort a delight. Tending to your every request as though it was an everyday occurrence. I did request a fire one August evening in the desert and they left a log to make my evening by the pool what I wanted it to be. As a guest I left feeling as though I could have asked Dale to "hang the moon and the stars" and the request would have been fulfilled.


This was my first time at Desert Paradise and certainly won't be the last. Lots of couples and singles who knew each other. They have all been here before. That says a lot for a place and I can see why. Great owner and manager. Just like instants friends. Lots of naked men and some who were not. The choice is yours. Very nice clean rooms and the grounds are beautiful especially at night. Off to dinner and then a midnight swim.
Stop reading reviews and just go! You will love it too!


With so many options in palm springs it was hard to choose so I went with the reviews here on tripadvisor. I was glad I did. Desert Paradise was exactly what I was looking for. Beautifully landscaped, super relaxing ( and that was my goal after all) and clean clean clean! The Beds were very comfortable. ( I have a bad back and always worry about hotel beds) The music, the water features, and the salt water pool all contribute to the melting away of one's stress. The hosts, Dale and Ron were warm and friendly, available and helpful and the assistants Jeff and Karol kept my room spotless. My room, the Bette Davis Suite, had a wet bar/micro/fridge and eating area. They promptly supplied me a blender per my request so I could whip up my pina coladas. The palms, gardens, bougainvillea all came together with that classic palm springs sunshine and heat creating the quintessential palm springs experience. Not too much, not too little, but everything just right. Two thumbs up for my first salt water pool experience. Definitely better than your typical chlorine pool. Better on the skin and eyes and no chlorine smell. The third day there I discovered that there were fish in the koi pond. You have to look close to discover all the little details. I was car-free on my trip and was able to walk to the bars, walk to the restaurants, the museum of art, and walk up to the corner to the grocery and drug store. Super convenient. I really did not want to come home. I found the other guests to be quite friendly and relaxed as well. Overall, it was a perfect getaway.


Just to report that we got home to LA on Monday safe and sound-and NO traffic jams!!!!   Had a wonderful lunch in Pasadena and then got home to Westwood in the afternoon. Maybe we should have stayed longer and driven home in the time!   Anyhow, many thanks for a relaxing (if brief) visit-it was superb.   We didn't see George, Peter or Charlie before we left-I think they were shopping-if they are still there, please say hi from us.   So take care and thanks again, until next time,   Don C. and Michael W.

Hi Dale and Ron

Just a quick note to say thank you so much for making Colin and I feel so welcome on our first visit to Palm Springs. We had the most fantastic time at Desert Paradise and, even though you couldn't notice at the time, have definitely got a bit of colour...all over! The Judy Garland suite was magnificent, as were all of the facilities. It was just the rest and relaxation we needed after five days in San Francisco.

Thanks again for everything.

Truely a wonderful place you have, down to the last detail.  Wished we could have stayed longer...but we will be back soon enough!  Thanks for all the hospitality by and you, Ron and the rest of the guys!    Very relaxing, fun and the views were awesome... oh .. the mountain views were nice too! *Smiles*
