      Great for couples
      Awesome, friendly and relaxing atmosphere I have ever experienced in Palm Springs. John and I are a couple and we just keep coming back. The owners are a hoot, very gracious to your particular needs and the manager is just too fun. If you are single it may be even better depending on the guests staying on when you are there. Just have never found a better more comfortable place ever. I can't wait till we go back.

      Relax and Unwind
      Step back to Old Palm Springs atmosphere, when movie stars lounged about the pools. Paul and Bruce offer an assortment of rooms at affordable prices. 2 pools, a good size jacuzzi, steam room, and continental breakfast each morning. I have stayed at El Mirasol 5 times and have always had a most enjoyable time. Have met some guys, several are now friends who keep in contact. So if you're looking for a place to relax and unwind, this is it. You can be in solitude or meet some great guys, it's your choice.

      My favorite place
      This place has got to my favorite place to stay. A little on the pricey side, but everytime we stray away for the cheaper deal we end up disappointed. Very classy feel. The casitas are the bomb.

      Hates it

      Not that Harold LLoyd would have stayed here, these aging stucco bungalows built by Howard Hughes in the 40's. My room was located on the side of the property without the heated pool and near the ice machine. The two water heaters next to my room kept me up as they noisily produced sounds through the pipes. Luckily, I was awake at 4 AM when an intruder used a key to open my door! Run, don't walk from El Mirasol.

      A Little too Quiet for Me
      The architectural style is interesting. My room was clean, and so were the grounds. This is probably a good choice for more mature travelers, but it was just too quiet for me.

      Hidden Oasis
      This is a great place to stay in Palm Springs. Beautiful mature grounds, simple but tasteful decor in the rooms. 2 great pools, large hot tub, outside shower and stram room, and great hosts to welcome you and make your stay there totally relaxing and enjoyable. Bruce and Paul are the best hosts! Thanks, we'll be back soon...

      Nice but overpriced
      I stayed in one of the suites. It was nice, but fairly expensive for what there was. The room had been recently renovated, but for some reason the shower with its missing grout and tiles was untouched.
