This is the second time we spend a weekend and since our last visit about 5 years ago, an outdoor jacuzzi was installed in the yard of this unit. I picked a unit with a jacuzzi not having a clue that it was the same unit as we'd been in prior. Amazing to be luxuriating in the spa while looking...

It had been a few years since we've stayed there, for no other reason than we weren't taking many vacations due to renovation of our home. This time we wanted to get away and include our pups in the fun and our first thought was "A Place in the Sun". Upon our return, we felt the comfort of the resort...

Took my daughter on a long weekend for her 30th birthday. Our bungalow was enormous and immaculate. Our stay was relaxing. The staff and the guests were exceptionally friendly. I definitely plan to return!

Everything at A Place in the Sun was fine - the room was comfortable, if very small, and had all the amenities we needed, including free WIFI, which we appreciated. We did find the air-con quite fierce (due to the size of the room), and the fan a little noisy, but this was not a huge problem. The private courtyard...

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We are sorry that your experience wasn't everything you had hoped it would be. I would like to take a moment to respond to a few of your comments. You were in our smallest unit, which does have a private walled patio, but it is all concrete, which makes it...

We were back once again to our favorite place to stay in the desert......APITS!! We can't seem to get enough of this lovely hotel!!

I have been going to APITS for about 8 years whenever I have 2 consecutive days off in a row (work 6 days a week) - usually about twice a year. I bring my 2 rescue dogs (50 lbs.) who are well behaved and they love hanging out in the room and the private patios are perfect. Awesome customer service....

Great service and attention to detail, from making the reservation over the phone to instructions for after-hours arrivals to checking out! The property sits on one acre of land with units surrounding the central pool and courtyard. The property was originally built for the cast and crew of the 1951 movie, "A Place in the Sun", and has since been...
