My husband and I have stayed at La Dolce Vita at least once annually over the past eight years. What keeps bringing us back is the hospitality provided by Ken and his staff. The rooms are clean and spacious and open up onto one of the two pools. It is a clothing optional resort for gay men and we have...

This is our go to place for a nice, not overly gay stay in PS. Don't get me wrong, nothing wrong with your level of being gay. I just like this place because Ken and Tim make it comfortable. Good mix of couples and singles of all age ranges. The rooms are nicely appointed and the neighborhood is quiet. Close...

From the choice of two good sized swimming pools with plenty of sun loungers and two hot tubs, plus a nice sized steam room, there's no excuse not to achieve an all over tan! The staff are super friendly, willing to help out with any reasonable request. Even the guests were pleasant, testament to how "chilled" the resort feels. Thoroughly...

Awesome place to stay, very laid back and all the staff is super friendly and know how to take care of their guests. No complaints about anything and would recommend la dolce vita to anyone. Mike and Tim were very hospitable. A very nice and clean gay friendly resort without the hustle and bustle of a big resort

This property is perfectly situated for a first time visit. It has great views of the mountains, easy access to the Buzz Trolley and a setting that is ideal for just relaxing. The evening cocktail reception was a great way to mix with other guests. The room that I had, in the west wing, was quiet and comfortable. Ken and...

The hummingbird egg hatched with an adorable baby. It was interesting to see how mommy and daddy fed the bird. Anyway, we're glad you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to your return.

La Dolce Vita ("LDV") is a terrific place for gay men. Just returned from my 5th stay here, and I always have a great time. The property is beautiful, tasteful, and very relaxing, with a bit of a "mid-century Palm Springs" vibe. There are a variety of rooms to choose from, ranging from small and simple to larger with sitting...

I highly recommend La Dolce Vita for a relaxing, fun stay in Palm Springs.
