Hi Folks! (Kim and Ron Kelly from Calgary, Canada, here.) We were back for our fifth stay at this little gem of a hotel. Booked for next April 2018 to be sure we had a spot! As usual, the staff was treating us like family and we had a relaxing vacation (except for some tough hikes!). The best thing about...

There are only 10 rooms surrounding a large pool at this little secluded, well placed hotel. The owners and staff are pleasant to work with and even provide popcorn every afternoon. Pool supplies are plentiful, bikes to ride are free, and there are barbeques with all the amenities. We had a fabulous time. Our room was large with a small...

We love this place, last stop on a two week vacation and looking forward to coming back again and we haven't even left yet. So relaxing, last two weeks we have been eating at restaurants so to be able to grill was fantastic and make home cooked food. Everything is taken care of by the hotel hosts. The pool and...

What a cool little spot. The ladies who run it are unfailingly fun - we used the free bikes for long rides and upon return would often be asked if we'd like a nice cold beer! It's a proper *adult* hideaway, the view to the mountains are epic and the grounds are maintained perfectly. The ladies who cleaned our room...

This is our fifth visit to Desert Riviera and by far it is the best vacation resort we've ever stayed at. Apart from the incredible layout and design (just check out the photos) the staff and guests make it feel like home away from home. Attention to the little details makes all the difference and they have thought of everything...

We live in San Diego and wanted to go to Palm Springs for just one night for a little get-away. I found Desert Riviera on Trip Advisor and read all of the great reviews!
