My partner and I are repeat customers of Escape, a fine resort in the desert. The location is ideal and the views from the pool and surrounding areas are picture perfect - beautiful view of the mountains. The rooms are very clean and comfortable, the grounds are nicely kept. Continental breakfast is very good and a nice way to start...

My partner and I have stayed at several gay resorts worldwide and we still consider Escape Resort Palm Springs as one of the best. The balance of tranquillity, resort features and hospitality from the staff combined with the social aspect of meeting other guest (who are also usually repeat guest) is a winning formula for this well positioned resort. If...

We had a most delightful time at this resort. The owners were most helpful in making our stay pleasant. The resort was very clean and close to everything we wanted to do. Would like to single out two of their workers (Willian and Gabriel) for exceptional service, curtesy, and a warm friendly smiles whenever we saw them. It was a...

My partner and I spent a week at Escape. We loved the relaxed and quiet ambiance of the resort and, especially, the welcoming and friendly staff. It was very hot while we were there but the air conditioned room kept us comfortable and we could always take a dip in the pool. A continental breakfast was available every morning and...

Stayed over 4th of July weekend. Loved the property. The common areas, garden and pool are beautiful. Rooms are good size. Seems like there are 2 types of rooms, we actually stayed in both due to a scheduling issue. The queen room had a King bed actually and was perfectly sized for 2 people. The King room had a full...

Thank you for posting your kind review! A car can be nice, especially in the peak of summer. It is almost exactly 1 mile from the resort to the center of downtown and the heart of gay nightlife. But we also like to remind guests we do have the free Palm Springs shuttle bus to downtown and the gay clubs/restaurants...

The Escape Palm Springs property continues to impress me. I've been coming to this fabulous resort for many years, and the staff and management are as professional, attentive and friendly as ever. The fresh updates and continued renovations to hotel rooms and hotel grounds are proof that the management remains truly engaged and passionate about the guest experience. Special shout...

We have been going back here since before Mark and Greg took the place over 6/7 years ago. Every time we return they have done something new to improve the place. Great pool area, lovely landscaping, comfortable beds. Unlike most of the other guests, we spend most of our 14 days just lying out by the pool, venturing out to...

I really enjoyed my stay at Escape this past May. It was my first time there, though I have been visiting Palm Springs for a number of years.
