Booked a 3 night, 4 day stay at this resort. When we got there, the place looked very old. There were broken fixtures and towel racks in the room and bathroom. The temperature outside was in the 90s and the heater in the room was on and could not be turned off. Being nonsmokers, everyone around us was smoking outside,...

Rick and Rob have a wonderful place in Tortuga Del Sol. We love to come here as it is peaceful and relaxing. We met our best friends here on a trip, it is that kind of place. It is not open to day passes, so if that is what you want, you would not be happy here. Instead, you get...

My partner of 12 years and I live extremely busy lifestyles and have little time to enjoy vacations together. Recently, I thought it was a good idea for some rest, relaxation and romance at a gay, clothing optional, resort in the hot Palm Spring summer air. With over 25 similar gay, clothing-optional resorts in the area, you are bound to...

Tortuga is a great place to relax. It's clothing optional, but it's also low-key. The aesthetics are very pretty. Rooms are good. I do wish they would play more upbeat music at the pool. It was mostly sad love ballads. Overall I had a nice time.

This place was just what we needed. A quiet place to celebrate our anniversary that allowed our dog. Ric and Rob were great. The room was big and the fenced in pet area with grass was a plus. Bed was very comfortable. There are some updates that could be done but you can tell they are working on them. Yes...

Couldn't have had a better time. Owners Rick & Rob are very friendly and helpful. My bf & I were upgraded to a king suite due to a conflict. A large room plus a separate, full kitchen, and a large table and leather recliner in the main room. Only minor complaint was a small bathroom, not for use by two...

There are a ton of gay guest houses and hotels in Palm Springs for the LGBT travelers. But the Tortuga del Sol is the best I've ever visited (and I've stayed at a lot of hotels over the years in Palm Springs.) This is a small (twelve rooms) well-kept, clean, really enjoyable place to stay in the Warm Sands area...

So if you're looking for a low key place to get away that has nice guests and friendly owners, this is the place to stay. We went there in August (yes oppressively hot) for my birthday just to relax. We stayed in one of the suites, so we had a full kitchen which was great. The GOOD: 1. Location if...

“The " pet friendly" room at the end is farther from the pool but still close and has the most privacy. But all are good- its a small place.”
