Wow! Where do we begin. One word sum it up FABULOUS!!!!
Another exciting vacation at the Desert Riviera hotel. A hidden gem for adults only. From beginning to end, we experienced, professional and exceptional service. Misty, Traci, and Amanda, best staff you could ask for. Very attentive to all of our needs. This little slice of heaven is always kept neat and clean 24/7. It's the only place we've stayed where your greeted with a beverage of your choice, within limits,and chat with the property owners on every visit.

Most relaxing hotel we have ever been to. Only 12 rooms, all around a pool. Relaxing havoc and comfortable chairs. If we are ever in California again we will definitely come back and spend more days soaking the sun and recharging our batteries.
I wish there were more hotels like this.

It’s a tiny (10 rooms) hotel in a lush garden setting filled with hummingbirds. The staff is beyond kind. Every detail is thought of, every need anticipated.

Loved every minute! Thank you! Can’t wait to come back!!

We wanted to select a great place in Palm Springs to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary. We succeeded. Room 5 has a great view of the mountains. Everyone was so accommodating. The rooms are kept very clean. Hummingbirds, bicycles, a pizza oven, gorgeous nights by the pool and golf five minutes away. An excellent choice. We will be back.

We have never been to Palm Springs before so opted to stay for two nights as we travelled from Las Vegas to San Diego.
We wished we had stayed longer - the best place we've ever stayed!
This is not like a lot of hotels as it is compact - best things come in small packages.
The staff in Tracie and Misty were really friendly and described all the amenities to us on arrival and also we were allowed to check out later than normal which was really great!

I can't emphasise how much you are treated as adults and individuals which was fantastic after the corporate soulless style of hotel and treatment in Vegas (stayed at the Vdara).
The facilities are exactly what you need - pizza oven, BBQ, Pool, hot tub, pool utilities, kitchen, breakfast, books, games, DVDs - the list goes on. And none of this is rigidly controlled such that it's hassle to take advantage - just on trust that you'll use and treat as you would at home.

I spent a large amount of our time lounging in the pool on a float and taking a drink whenever I hit the side my drink was waiting. We did go down the main street and also went on the Aerial Tramway which is recommended.

There is a Ralph's supermarket nearby and a tip is to use that to get some basics such as drinks/snacks that you particularly want as they can be stored in your own room fridge or the communal fridge.

Living in the UK it's quite a distance to get here but we enjoyed our stay so much we are planning to return next year.

This place is so great that I almost don't want to write a review and keep it secret but I wouldn't want to let Tracie and Misty down.

Absolutely fantastic and don't hesitate to stay here if you can.

Room Tip: Stock up on groceries at the Ralph's Supermarket about half a mile away
