“An Oasis Paradise in the Desert City of Palm Springs”
“This was my ‘First Visit’ to The Hacienda, and why I've never stayed here before is beyond me? I wouldn't stay any place else after the wonderful experience I enjoyed here. The location is perfect, the property and suites are beautiful, and the service...beyond compare & words! The owners have employed the most competent and experienced staff. Positively the best gay resort I've ever stayed at, and it definitely ranks alongside main stream 5-star boutique resorts I've stayed at during my many travels abroad. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!!”

Lance A. - Calgary, Canada

“Our Sweet Spot”
“The Hacienda is the only place in the world that we visit just to be at the hotel. The environment that exists here is just so perfect for us that overall we spend the vast majority of our time just sitting around and taking it all in. You may feel the same way too. Many of the guests we encounter have stayed multiple times. We all know a good thing when we find it.”

John and Alan - Bronxville, New York

“Absolute Perfection... Total Relaxation”
“Our second visit to this corner of heaven! Firstly, Palm Springs is gorgeous, but The Hacienda transcends calm, comfort, friendliness and everything one needs for a perfect holiday. The team looking after you are discrete but attentive. The Hacienda is one of less than five places all over the world, that we have had fortune to stay at that is just the perfect balance. Beautiful pools and clean very well maintained gardens. Fab mountain views. Centrally located to walk to the bars and restaurants. Can we come back...?”

Mike and Sean - Yorkshire Dales National Park, United Kingdom

“I'd Love to Find a Fault...”
“but I can't! This place never fails to live up to all the glowing and well deserved reviews it receives. It really is above and beyond any place I've stayed in Palm Springs, or anywhere for that matter, and I've been around. Lol. If you can afford it, stay in the grand deluxe suites, they are fantastic. Every amenity has been thought of. This was 3rd visit to The Hacienda, and I hope I'll be back asap. The staff are wonderful, always asking if you need anything. The lunch delivered either poolside or to your room for free is a fantastic touch.”

Adam – London, United Kingdom

“The Perfect Setting!”
“It is easy to enjoy the natural splendor and the positive vibe of Palm Springs. Staying at the Hacienda however, makes the experience just that much better. The place exudes pride of ownership. The little waterfalls in the courtyard by the second pool, the palm trees, flowers, the pathways. Everything was perfect! It was a joy to walk around and look at the various plants and watch the hummingbirds! A special mention to the staff; they are exceptional. The attention they paid to small details was amazing.”

“Never, Ever, Ever Disappoints.”
“We just returned from another amazing stay at the Hacienda. Running a hotel is an art, and these guys have mastered it. Also, this year we enjoyed the new fireplace at the hot tub and the newly redone pool. Complimentary breakfast and lunch, amazingly friendly staff and the comfiest rooms. Certainly way above any competition.”

Ken - San Francisco, California

“Exceeded Expectations”
“I have stayed in similar properties before - in Provincetown, in Ft Lauderdale, and in Palm Springs on earlier visits. My first stay at the Hacienda confirmed what many others have said - it's by far the best of any of them, and really exceeded my expectations. The staff you interact with daily are all top-notch. They all take pride in what they do and they do it very well. Just a pleasure to deal with!”

American Jim - Toronto, Ontario

“Superb Resort with Meticulous Attention to Quality!”
“Conveniently located near the best shopping and restaurants in Palm Springs. Beautifully landscaped, secluded grounds with great views of the San Jacinto Mountains. This intimate boutique resort has 10 suites each of which faces one of two beautiful swimming pools. The suites are spacious, well-furnished and very comfortable. The staff are truly gracious hosts, thoughtful, responsive and always eager to assist. The continental breakfast is wonderful, but eclipsed by the magnificent luncheons served poolside or in your suite.”

Don S. – Tulsa, Oklahoma

“Another Wonderful Stay”
“This is our 7th visit…and continue to be true fans of the facilities, pools, grounds and wonderful attentive service we consistently experience. The entire staff is dedicated to making our stays enjoyable and trouble free. Helpful for restaurant bookings or other tours or excursions, making recommendations. A staple at the resort, the Saturday cocktails, just to make us feel even more welcomed. Kudos to the team. Already booked our stay for next year.”

Oscar Travel – Montreal, Canada

“Very High Standards”
“Just spent four days at The Hacienda at Warm Sands and would recommend it highly. It really sets the standard in Palm Springs for up market gay resort hotels. The suites are well decorated and the two pools and hot tub are a good size, surrounded by beautiful landscaping. The service here is first class, and everyone on the team I met were extremely helpful in a friendly and relaxed way. If you are looking for an upscale, small resort that offers the ‘best in service and facilities’, then The Hacienda at Warm Sands should be your first choice. ”

“WOW Super Place to Spend Time in Palm Springs”
“This place took my breath away! From check in to check out everything here was perfect. The staff that we met… were always attentive to every detail in making us feel comfortable and at home. The housekeeping was superb; the suite was always kept immaculate and it all seemed to happen behind the scenes. They made lists of fun things to see and do in Palm Springs and were always available for any question that we had. The property is centrally located within a comfortable walking distance to the shops and nightlife of downtown Palm Springs. Included was a beautiful breakfast buffet that was waiting each morning which we could have at poolside or in the suite. Also included was lunch which was from a menu and included tasty sandwiches, wraps and salads. Again the small details which makes the trip - if we were away sightseeing or shopping we returned to find our lunch neatly wrapped and waiting in the refrigerator. We met the owners… and they are the sweetest people with hearts as big as the mountains that rise up and tower over the city and the whole valley. It's clear that they have put their hearts and souls into their business and that they enjoy making every guest feel welcome and special. You're truly staying with friends when you stay here.”

Mike S. - Raleigh, North Carolina

“A Great Place to Celebrate”
“For a special treat, we spent a long weekend at The Hacienda at Warm Sands. I planned the trip to The Hacienda partly as a surprise for my partner’s 40th birthday. I preordered with the staff to have a large tropical flower arrangement and chilled bottle of champagne waiting in our suite as the surprise upon arrival. What a great staff, fabulous suite, world-class beds with comfy pillows and the grounds are so spacious and lush. We have added The Hacienda at Warm Sands to our short list of our favorite return visit resorts. ”
