Over all its a great place.. Its really large hotel for Gay Men's Resort... It is peak season so the Hotel was almost full every day. Beautiful and large Pool My room was very small with a King Bed.. so I was a bit disappointed for $228 a night. I was expecting a larger room.

Glad you enjoyed your visit. Coming during peak is a great time to come, there is always so much going on. Coming in on the weekdays is always a bit less, if you are able. That is a great way to get a bigger room at a lower price.

Had an amazing week long "Staycation" in late March with a good friend visiting from Seattle. We loved our second floor King Suite room (the resort has 20-plus well appointed rooms) overlooking the resort's inviting courtyard with umbrella bedecked tables where we enjoyed our continental breakfasts and delicious gourmet box lunches everyday. A big hit with my visiting Seattle friend...

I don't usually write reviews, but this resort was so much better than I expected! I wanted to share my experience. This was the first gay clothing-optional resort I've visited and I was nervous it would be like a bathhouse. But it was fun and playful, but never creepy or too intense. The setting was beautiful and peaceful. The guests...

We've been going to Palm Springs for the past 10 years and have never stayed at any resort other than Santiago Resort. Kent is the new general manager of Santiago Resort, having just started April 01 2017.

The idea is if we bring in all you need, then all that is left is for you to relax by the pool! Or maybe the hammocks under the palm trees? We are glad you had a good stay with us, we hope to see you back soon.

We have been to Santiago around 15 times, and the "magic" created a long time ago still exists. For those reading this who have never been, I say "magic" because Santiago resort has never failed to deliver new friendships that will last for many years. On this trip we met Kent, the new GM at Santiago. Kent was in training...

It has been nearly a decade since I have stayed at the Santiago. During the 1990s and 2000s it was my go to place for several visits each year. With new owners, management and an extensive room remodel I thought the time was right to come back home. And I was not disappointed. The room remodels are excellent with fashionable...

My husband and I have visited Santiago for 8 years now and love it every time. This is a well-maintained property in a quiet area that's close to the action. Walk downtown for dinner or to go out or a hike in the mountains. The staff is friendly and the rooms are updated. We will be back!

Hotel was super cute and super well appointed. They definitely keep you well fed with the included daily boxed lunch from a variety of gourmet deli's around town. The fridge and microwave in the room made it easy to reheat your take-out or lunch. Love loved it. Was also conveniently located to the Tool Shed ;)

I've stayed at Santiago Resort three times in the past two years. I've stayed solo and with my boyfriend. Each time I enjoy the serenity, the service, the attention to detail that makes Santiago stand above the rest in Palm Springs. The pool is large, and there is always a chair ready for me to sunbathe. I love the hot...
