My husband and I stayed for 8 nights and enjoyed every minute we were there. The owners and staff were wonderful, well kept grounds, super clean pool and spa. We used the BUZZ trolley several times which is conveniently located within steps of the resort. Each morning at 8:00 a very nice continental breakfast was available, including grapefruits grown right...

When we go to Palm Springs, we don't have to think about where to stay, it's always La Dolce Vita. Ken & Tim make certain it is consistently a great place - clean and welcoming. It's like going home - you know you are welcome and going to be pampered. For the past several years my partner and I have...

The hosts are gracious, the setting idyllic. The staff are friendly and efficient. This is my home to get away from it all. We decided to go here every other month from now on.

La Dolce Vita is a great place to stay in Palm Springs. I've been a regular visitor here since the resort opened many years ago.

This is the fifth year we have spent Christmas at La Dolce. Obviously, we must love it there because we keep coming back. In total this year, we have spent in excess of 50 days there.

There are many resorts for men in the Palm Springs area. Having stayed at quite a few of them over the years, I looked forward to sampling “The Sweet Life” at La Dolce Vita Resort and Spa.
