We checked in on the fly as the hotel we planned to stay in was booked out, and WOW what a winner. Small boutique hotel only 7 units and caters for over 21 yr olds (so no kids hogging the pool). Large room with huge bed and a full kitchen with a full size fridge (complete with already stocked cold...

The staff was great...it is not walking distance to town down maybe a short drive. Better than a big chain hotel, We will...

I booked this hotel less than a week before hitting Coachella Music Fest. Usually it is near to impossible to book a hotel during this time & if you can find a place they gouge you with super high prices. I was able to get this place for about $250 including taxes at last minute. I wouldn't normally pay that...

When we first booked we didn't know what to expect since it was so small, but it turned out to be an incredible stay! Edgar at the front desk gave great service and was incredibly helpful. We also met Daniel, who was wonderful. There are 9 rooms surrounding a beautiful salt water pool. It's very private, which we loved. You...

I stayed at the Avance for only one night May 27, 2016. What a mistake should have stayed there a week. The property is quaint and private. The hotel has put a great deal in making this a fabulous property. I was travelling solo and the room I had like all were right at the pool. I had a great...

A lovely small hotel with a lovely pool. Our room was very comfortable with a separate kitchen area. If you want to eat outside, there's a lovely shady table and chairs right outside the room. The AC was perfect at 117% degrees outside. We had a coffee station outside right near our room and a continental breakfast in the morning....

We couldn't have asked for anything more! Staff very nice and Kuerig coffee unit on deck next to our room. Pool clean and warm. Beds and pillows were comfortable. Nice microwave, TV, ice was available and plentiful, refrigerator was stocked with water, and cupboards were well stocked with dishes and glasses.

I was in room 7, a suite. Spacious little suite. Loved the patio. Great water pressure in shower. Good toiletries. Could have used a few other amenities (especially since they charge a "resort fee") like coffee in the rooms with cups, laundry bags, water, etc. the pool was so so nice. Excellent cozy seating around this beautifully landscaped property. Really...

It is entirely their right to do what they want with the hotel, but what I find reprehensible of the new owners is that they're happily taking the bookings they inherited and your money on arrival BEFORE telling you it is no longer a gay resort. No communication at all. A change in ownership hasn't been good either in terms...

Arrived at hotel to find it is under new ownership and has new name "Avance". Was a little shocked to find female staff working at clothing optional gay resort! Although staff were great, not the experience we had booked and should have informed guests BEFORE arrival of changes. More changes to come, as understanding is resort will no longer be...
