“Memorable Experience at the Hacienda Resort in Gay Palm Springs”

Tuesday, March 21st, 2006

My friend and I stayed at the Hacienda recently which proved to be a memorable experience which we both enjoyed immensely. The concerned, caring attitude of the staff, with a cordiality that seemed so genuine, along with a certain unobtrusive style of doing things, made us feel right at home. When you add the beautiful properties overall spaciousness; the cozy, well appointed suites (ours had a romantic fireplace) put our stay over the top. Combining the Hacienda’s unique comforting appointments, their Pillow Menu, the suite’s style and property’s sense of serenity, simply created for us the perfect combination for a thoroughly relaxing experience. The Hacienda earns a 5 star rating…we can’t wait to return.

“Couln’t ask for anything better! Don’t miss the chance to Stay at The Hacienda Resort in Gay Palm Springs”

This was our first time at The Hacienda and it definitely WILL NOT be our last. The accomodations are great and the staff is very hospitable and out going; making you feel immediately at home while away from home. The amenities are wonderful and who could ask for anything better. Breakfast and lunch are a treat; delicious and plentiful. The resort grounds are comforable, well groomed and what great scenic views from the front pool area. Service and cleanliness stand out as well as comfort. The friendliness of staff and willingness to accomodate personal needs is outstanding. The coziness of the resort allows for friendships to be developed, and if desired it can be friendly yet unobtrusive with personal space respected. We made friends with visitors from Paris, whom we hope to visit in the near future. If ever in Palm Springs and want a laid-back and pampered vacation, do not miss the chance to experience The Hacienda, you will want to return and stay longer the next visit.

Our recent trip to Palm Springs was our first and we had high expectations. Many of our friends had been to this very gay-friendly city in the past and we felt like we were missing out. Since we didn’t know whether we would like any particular guest house, we decided to split our vacation in half and spend a few nights in each of two places (the Hacienda and the Century).
The Hacienda is wonderful. The grounds were open and grassy, with two fabulous pools and a hot tub, and a view of the mountains to die for. The rooms were more than spacious, they were full fledged apartments, and very clean and well tended. We had room 2, right off the front pool. We felt quite at home, as we left our door open and causually drifted from poolside to guestroom and back. It was pure relaxation and I did not want it to end. The staff was more than generous with their time for us, and their cheery mood always caused laughter to errupt from the office. It was like staying at a good friend’s place. (The Century, on the other hand, was just OK. Much more minimalist and spartan, less spacious, more concrete (as in surfaces not concepts), and it paid less attention to details.)
After taking tours of other guest houses while we were in Palm Springs, there is no question that we will stay at the Hacienda when we again visit Palm Springs (that is, if we don’t buy a house there – I say move now, my partner wants to wait a few years). The Hacienda was a major factor in my assessment of our vacation as being one of the best, most fun, and most relaxing vacations we have ever taken. Good work, boys, and thanks!

Dear “Hacienda Guys”,

We have just returned from Palm Springs to the warmth of the South East after a fabulous week out there with all of you at the Hacienda Resort.

Lee and I wanted to take a minute to drop you a quick note to express our appreciation for all of your warmth and hospitality while we were there – our week could not have been better!

We definitely look forward to our next visit – hopefully soon!

Again, thanks for a great time and be sure to keep up the exceptional work!

Jim and Maurice –

I wanted to write to you to thank you so much for the wonderful experience we had staying at your exceptional property.

You have created a beautiful oasis in Warm Sands that welcomes you from the moment you enter the gate and makes you not want to leave. The rooms, grounds, common areas, amenities – everything is done with a style that bespeaks a love for what you have created, not to mention attention to detail and professionalism. I’ve left not the least for last, and that is your outstanding staff.

Steve, Kaleb, Tom and all the other guys are jewels in the Hacienda crown (or should I say tiara?!) who make it truly complete and special. As someone responsible from running two departments at my firm, I’m sure I don’t need to tell you how lucky you are to have such talented, dedicated, personable and fun people with you. But as a manager I know how important it is to hear that from clients and how often people don’t take the time to do so.

From the fun cocktail reception on Saturday night to being taken in the following Sunday night when we were “orphaned” at the airport by a flight cancellation due to bad weather in Chicago (we wouldn’t have thought of calling anywhere BUT the Hacienda), you all were fabulous and made us immediately feel like family. We eagerly look forward to our next stay with you. Keep up the excellent work!

If any of you get to NYC, please drop us a line and let us buy you a drink!

Warm regards,
