My partner of ten years and I decided to plan a romantic weekend at one of the men's boutique hotels . We looked into various hotels and choose La Dolce Vita. Love the staff . Extremely courteous and thoughtful. The grounds were immaculate and pool and spa areas very clean and very well kept. Our suite was named Roma with...

My partner and I stayed for a long weekend. We travel often to Palm Springs and like to try different places. Although there is much to recommend La Dolce Vita, we will probably not return anytime soon. On the positive side, the owners and staff are extremely friendly, helpful, and responsive. The room was nice, clean, and comfortable. The mattress...

Hello Gentlemen, Thank you for sharing your experience at La Dolce Vita. We have tried very hard not to change the original style of the Resort and the furniture is fairly new. Good comment however about the rugs. We will take your comment seriously and investigate the rugs in all our guest rooms and replace as needed. Regarding breakfast, we...

We have been staying with Ken and Tim for years as the property is very inviting and relaxed. One of the nicest features is that there are two pools. Each time we have been there one pool is usually more social and the the other is more on the quiet side, giving us the option to cool off in either...

Thank you for visiting us. We really do have a friendly crowd. Our buildings were built right after WWII. For our younger audience, that was a really big War. It was during Palm Springs' growth period when many of the Hollywood crowd decided to make the desert their playground. We have tried to retain that vibe, but, updating where necessary....

My boyfriend I spent the weekend with the Dolce Vita guys, and had such an awesome time. First, the place is even nicer than the photos show. It's actually quite big. The video on the website gives you great sense of it. Between the two pool, the afternoon happy hours and the super friendly staff, we made some long-term friends...

I've been staying at La Dolce Vita Resort for years. I keep coming back because it feels like a home away from home now. Friendly staff, comfortable rooms, beautiful grounds and a great clientele make it all worth while.

I originally stayed at La Dolce Vita resort about 8 years ago, shortly after it was purchased by the current owners. At the time, it was pristine....newly renovated, high quality rooms, a fantastic, unique happy hour everyday (which included the house specialty cocktail - a greyhound made with freshly squeezed grapefruit juice from the prolific tree located on site)...I thoroughly...

When we lived in Seattle, we discovered this friendly, laid back, lovingly kept up and nicely landscaped gay resort as an alternative to a traditional hotel or one of the many alleged all-male "resorts" that aren't nice and not a place to relax. Guests of all body types, you don't have to suck in your gut...Dad bods and paunches welcome....
