A resort with a relaxing atmosphere
This Spanish-style resort offers lots of shade and places to unwind. Nineteen tropical rooms are available for stays, and massages and facials appointments can be booked through the spa. Work out in the covered outdoor gym or relax in one of two luxurious spas.

      Loved this resort
      My husband and I had the best time here. The staff treats you like family. They go above and beyond for any of your requests. The facility is well maintained comfortable.

      very solid and comfy place
      Second time here. Nice getaway with decent amenities but property is on small side. Clean and decent sized rooms. Breakfast could use a facelift and service of rooms a bit slow. Music at pools could be dropped a few notches. Nice landscaping and helpful staff.

      a sweet place
      We have stayed here twice now and really enjoy this resort. The staff is very friendly. The rooms are very nice. The two pools and hot tubs are clean. The weekend social hours are a great way to meet other guests. The breakfast is the best we have found in Palm Springs! This will be our go to place when we come to Palm Springs!

      Outstanding accommodation
      Managed to get a room here at the last minute as everything else was booked out that weekend. From booking on the phone through to checking out, the entire experience was memorable. The staff are super friendly. Met some great new friends there. The rooms are well appointed and the facilities top notch. Breakfast is delicious. Highly recommended and I'm looking forward to my next stay there

      My Favorite PS resort
      This is the cutest little resort and spa, with cabanas and gardens built around two pools. Sweet guests, efficient and fun hosts, and a totally relaxed, non pretentious atmosphere. Love the social happy hours. One of the best deals in Palm Springs.

      JUST RIGHT!!!
      Just stayed here for the second time and i love this place! It's not too big, not too small, not to loud, not too quiet, not too young, not too loud...its JUST RIGHT. Great prices, great rooms, multiple pools & jacuzzis, great views and location too. Plus, there's a happy hour and included breakfast (with WAFFLES!). La Dolce Vita really does make a stay in PS sweeter!

      Classy place with wonderful staff
      I booked here on MLK weekend after the other resorts I usually book were already full. When I arrived, they took care of my luggage and had my room ready within a hour. Gave me a complete tour of the resort which is larger than I expected. Two pools and hot tubs, plenty of room and very comfortable loungers. The clientel is friendly and diverse. As for the room, quite large with a very comfortable king bed, even better than my own at home. Nice soft bedding. In the future this could be my first choice for Palm Springs.

      I Love La Dolce Vita!
      I have been staying at La Dolce Vita Resort since Ken and Tim bought it several years ago. It's the only place I will stay in Palm Springs because of the great accommodations and the welcoming vibe of the resort. I feel comfortable and at-home in the beautiful accommodations. The staff is always very helpful and I have met wonderful people there from all over the world. The rooms are beautiful, the pools are heaven, the spa is unbelievable, and the happy hour is a great addition. The resort is clothing optional but I don't feel like I'm staying in a bath house. It's a classy place at a reasonable price!

    • The only Resort I will stay at.
      I've been coming to La Dolce Vita for serveral years now, it gets better and better each time I visit. I love the rooms, the pools and the spa which offers facials or a massage. The owners and staff are friendly and their knowledge of what to do in the Palm Springs area is amazing and helpful. If you are planning a trip to Palm Springs this resort should be your first and only choice.

      Hates it

      I am staying here right now and as I look around the room at the scuff marks on the base board, the fridge and stove that are late eighties models, the pool that is inundated with some type of biological haze, and the hard wood floors that arent even hard wood- it is sheet vinyl with a wood look; i am getting mader and mader. I like to visit gay businesses and hotels and I will tell everyone I meet of my experience and this place.

      My (now) husband and I booked a trip to Palm Springs to get married. The owner and staff were very helpful in helping us plan and celebrate this special occasion. The staff is amazing and the resort is clean, awesome and definitely worth a visit. Kudos to Ken and his team. Amazing place! We cant wait to go back soon. Thanks guys! - Kev & Matt

    • A comfortable and affordable PS resort
      Have stayed here on and off for several years. Lovely owners and staff. Comfortable rooms. Two great pools with nice views of the mountains. The spa on site is really great. Had a sugar body scrub which I would recommend prior to getting any sun. My skin was smooth and silky afterward. The guests are always friendly and a nice mix usually from all over. The sexual temp is as high or low as you want to make it given the clothing optional option, two hot tubs and steamroom but the place is a resort first, unlike some of the more bathhouse type places in town. For the price you can't beat the accommodations at La Dolce Vita.

      Amazing massage in huge spacious gay playground
      I absolutely love this resort and can't wait to go back. I only went for a day to get a massage, but I totally want to stay there now. The owner showed me the rooms and I used the spa and pools and had a blast. The massage was LITERALLY the best massage I had ever had in my entire life, and they told me that they screen the therapists, etc. The cocktail hour after the massage was amazing, with this delicious vodka grapefruit juice drink (sounds gross but is so sweet and good) made with fresh picked grapefruits off their tree. The nicest and cutest guys were there, one of whom we had seen out at Hunter's the night before!

      Birthday Getaway...
      This is an excellent property. Both the staff and guests are extremely friendly with no attitude. We had a wonderful time during our first visit to this property and will certainly return again soon!
