We couldn't have asked for anything more! Staff very nice and Kuerig coffee unit on deck next to our room. Pool clean and warm. Beds and pillows were comfortable. Nice microwave, TV, ice was available and plentiful, refrigerator was stocked with water, and cupboards were well stocked with dishes and glasses.

I was in room 7, a suite. Spacious little suite. Loved the patio. Great water pressure in shower. Good toiletries. Could have used a few other amenities (especially since they charge a "resort fee") like coffee in the rooms with cups, laundry bags, water, etc. the pool was so so nice. Excellent cozy seating around this beautifully landscaped property. Really...

It is entirely their right to do what they want with the hotel, but what I find reprehensible of the new owners is that they're happily taking the bookings they inherited and your money on arrival BEFORE telling you it is no longer a gay resort. No communication at all. A change in ownership hasn't been good either in terms...

Arrived at hotel to find it is under new ownership and has new name "Avance". Was a little shocked to find female staff working at clothing optional gay resort! Although staff were great, not the experience we had booked and should have informed guests BEFORE arrival of changes. More changes to come, as understanding is resort will no longer be...

We have stayed here twice before. The front of house owner Michael is very friendly and approachable and made another visit here for us very enjoyable. We had booked room 1 for our 5 night stay. It is well appointed and receives the late afternoon sun. If you wish morning sun try room 7 on the opposite side of the...

A group of us went for the weekend to Palm Springs and stayed at the Desert Eclipse. Its a very intimate resort with all the rooms facing the center courtyard that has beautiful central pool and jacuzzi surrounded by beautiful landscaping. The pool was like bath water. The rooms are very spacious and the beds are so comfortable. The owner...

I've stayed here more than a handful of times through the years and think it's great. The owners keep the place spotless, the rooms are well appointed, and most have kitchens. It's very quiet during the week, so if you're looking for a place to stay in Palm Springs to chill, this would be a good spot. Also, they have...

This was our second visit to the clothing optional Desert Eclipse Resort (see earlier report!) - All being well we hope to return spring 2016! The quiet atmosphere here provides a totally relaxing experience. We had reserved a King room. On arrival we were upgraded at no additional charge to a King room with a back patio, this gave us...

Having stayed in several other resorts, we will never stray from Desert Eclipse... The rooms are immaculate, the guests friendly, and the salt water pool seals the deal. Michael, the owner, is a gracious host. He greets us every day with a smile, and often brings his wonderful dog Benjamin along to meet the guests. Make sure to call Michael...

My husband and I found the Desert Eclipse to be the perfect place for us to spend a fun weekend with our little dog. From check-in to check-out, everything not only met, but exceeded our expectations. We stayed in the 1 bedroom king, room 2B. Large TV and sitting area, a full kitchen, and a separate bedroom with a comfy...
