Meet The Staff

Hi Guys,

I’m Dale the proud owner to the Desert Paradise Resort. I’ve been coming to Palm Springs since the 60’s and had stayed here at the Desert Paradise in the 90’s. Larry and Basil were great hosts, always making me feel welcome, and even a bit envious. I had dreamed of owning my own gay resort based on my experiences.

Well, in 1997 fate dealt me a hand and I bought my dream, I purchased the Desert Paradise and since that wonderful day, I continuously update and upgrade the Desert Paradise into the kind of place I am proud to call a “Home Away from Home”.

I’m very grateful that over the last 18 years I’ve been able to build an 85% return clientele that is still growing. I’ve recently installed 32″ flat screen TV’s , IPOD docking radios, Glass Block Showers,who knows what’s next.

I invite you to look around the website. Don’t forget to enjoy the live Paradise webcams. I and my staff look forward to meeting all our new guests and welcome back our return guests to Paradise.



Dale – Desert Paradise Owner Since 1997



My name is Ron and I’ve been The Property Manager of the Desert Paradise since February 2007.

I bring 10 years of Corporate Hospitality experience. However in all my years of hospitality, I’ve never enjoyed a job as much as I do at the Desert Paradise Hotel. Dale has a very high standard of quality,cleanliness and it shows in every detail. I am impressed with the number of return guest who are truly an extension of Dale’s Desert Paradise family.

Some Return annually like clockwork, others return several times throughout the year. This is truly their “Home Away From Home”.

It’s my hope that someday I will live out Dale’s dream and follow in his footsteps in the Desert Paradise Hotel. I look forward to all the new faces and the many return guests who are now extended family of The Desert Paradise.

Remember, if there’s anything you need just ask. See you soon

Hello Guys, I am Karol and I’ve been working for Dale and the Desert Paradise since 2003. I didn’t plan to stay at this job for very long, but after only 6 months, I could see that Mr. Dale really cared about his staff and the hotel. Dale really cares for his guest and all of us, as if we are family. It’s reasons like this that I’ve continued to work in Paradise. Dale recently nominated me for the “Palm Springs Best of the Best”, “Heart of the House” 2011 Golden Palm Award and I won. Dale truly is a very caring and thoughtful man. As the Lead Houseman here I look forward to meeting all the new guests and welcoming back our many friends. I hope to see you all back in: “Your Home Away from Home” The Desert Paradise Resort.
