A friend and I stayed one night at the Tortuga Del Sol. Check in with Rob was very easy and we were given the best room in the resort at a reduced rate because it was Tuesday and there was only one other guest. I am sure the place is packed on the weekend. Our room was clean and in...

I spent 5 nights at Tortuga Del Sol, and was very pleased with my experience. Although the place is not super fancy, it's quite pleasant, clean and comfortable, and I loved the bed in my room. The pool and spa area are quite nice and well maintained. Plus the place is a good bargain. Ric and Rob, the owners, were...

We just finished our third stay at Tortuga. Over the last 8 years this has been our choice for Palm Springs accommodations serving the gay community. The vibe feels right to us. It's friendly and relaxed with nice hosts (Rob and Ric). We usually prefer the larger Hacienda room category with full kitchen. Housekeeping is exceptional and the grounds are...

We have stayed here numerous times over the past 8 years and Ric and Rob are probably the best resort owners we've met. The place is gorgeous and well maintained. The pool area is spotless and continuously cleaned as is the Hot Tub. Continental breakfast is OK considering the limitations they are given. The other guests are always so friendly...

The owners are super friendly reminds me more of a bed and breakfast with personalized attention. Great place to relax and soak in the sun. Resort is super clean and well maintained. Location is great. I've stayed at many resorts in Palm Springs and this has to be one of the best.

I spent a weekend here and needed to stay on a budget, so I grabbed one of the $99 rooms. I think this may have been the cheapest room in the city! The room is a little bit small, but was packed with stuff, like a fridge, freezer, microwave, coffee maker, so it had everything you would need. It was...

I had a nice stay here when traveling from Phoenix to Lake Tahoe. The grounds are lush and a perfect place to spend a day by the pool reading a good book and throwing back a few beers. The owners Ric and Rob were very nice and upon my arrival they helped me when I was lost trying to find...

This resort is one of our favorite places to stay and chill when in Palm Springs. The owners Ric and Rob are two of the sweetest hosts we know. They make you feel like one of the family upon arriving and yet unlike family they give you all the privacy you need to experience truly a stress free time. Speaking...

“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.”
