My wife and I visited Aqua Soleil with two teenagers and we loved the place. The courtyard was an oasis and the staff were friendly and accommodating. After staying three nights, we wanted to stay for three more but we were locked into our next hotel. Here are a few tips: -hotel graciously provides coffee, fruit & instant oatmeal in...

The place is in a constant state of disrepair. Patches of tiles and cement have chipped out and don't seem to be on schedule to be fixed. And this you can see in the lobby upon entering. The wi-fi is non-existent. I was told by the pool/security guy that the ownership changed 12 years ago and new management about 8...

The room was clean. The bed was very comfortable. The pool and hot tubs were nice. Fantastic views of the mountains and palm trees. We might stay there again sometime. It was convenient to restaurants.

Covina, California
Reviewed 20 March 2017

Pros: nice beds, clean rooms, mini fridge included, nice staff, plenty of furniture for indoor or outdoor lounging; mineral water pool and spas. Cons: noise from traffic on Palm drive--wear ear plugs; you have to ask for hangers; tiny drawers; one luggage rack; very slow wifi. Area is sketchy so don't go out at night.

On the one hand we were somewhat surprised at how nice it was for desert hot springs. Clearly, the staff and new owners are making an effort to upgrade this hotel to todays standards. Unfortunately, for the amount we paid, we think we could have done better. The new cafe looks like it will be nice, but it wasnt open...

Staff were friendly and helpful. The pool, hot tub area was very nice and well maintained. The room was o.k. but nothing special. No frills. It is a very windy area. The first two days we were there, it was extremely windy. Thankfully, the wind died down on the rest of our week and the sun was nice and warm.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in the foothills of the San Bernardino Mountains and at the edge of Joshua Tree National Park is the city of Desert Hot Springs, California, where you will find one of the best kept spa hotel secrets called the Aqua Soleil Hotel and Mineral Water Spa. Our hotel features three gleaming pools filled with hot mineral water drawn from the Desert Hot Springs aquifer deep beneath the earth's surface by our onsite well. For centuries this odorless and mineral-rich water is believed to hold curative powers. We offer a variety of well-appointed room types to fit your needs, all of which have been recently remodeled. Our Single Queen and King rooms afford comfortable accommodations with unique and radiant color schemes. Our Double Queen rooms offer a second queen-sized bed and are ideal for guests needing additional space. Our Soleil Suites feature a huge 6x10' private, jetted mineral water pool inside of the suite. Our full-service spa, The Spa at Soleil, offers a number of relaxing and rejuvenating body treatments, facials and massages. The Aqua Soleil Hotel and Mineral Water Spa is the ideal getaway spot for those looking for a serene and relaxing atmosphere at an affordable price. Some might say we offer a taste of Palm Springs, just 15 minutes away, without the Palm Springs prices. ... more   less
