While visiting Palm Springs for my annual COACHELLA music festival trip, I decided to book into a recommended gay men's resort. La Dolce Vita Resort & Spa is located a short drive or uber ride from the main downtown area of Palm Springs in a quiet neighborhood. The facility has a couple of swimming pools with most rooms having doors opening out onto the pool area. It's a beautiful setting with the hills in view and comfortable areas to relax around the pools. A complimentary breakfast is included in the cost of your room. To be clear, it is a limited breakfast offering coffee, juices, fresh fruit, toast or bagels or breakfast rolls, make your own waffles, etc. Not elaborate but nice it is available. Perhaps the best part of La Dolce Vita Resort & Spa is the staff....from your hosts to all of the staff....all are very friendly and accommodating and wanting to make your stay as pleasant as can be. It is important to note, this is a "clothing optional" resort so be comfortable with that atmosphere as many partake of the option. I would recommend La Dolce Vita Resort & Spa if you are visiting Palm Springs and want a nice place to stay or relax. It's an older compound but well maintained and well run and has off street parking.

Stayed: April 2017

Thank you Greg for sharing your experience at La Dolce Vita. We truly enjoy meeting new people and introducing them to our other guests. We believe excellent customer service can make a world of difference. Over the last 13 years we have had thousands of guests returning to our desert oasis, time after time. How lucky are we!!! Until next time, Big hugs, Ken, Tim and the boys!

La Dolce Vita was an amazing place to stay. It was nice for the owners to take the time to speak and get to know us. All the other guests were nice. We met a lot of people from all over. To all East coast guys consider taking a direct flight to San Diego or Los Angeles, even Burbank and rent a car. It will be well worth it.

Thank you for the review Robert and Peter. The best part of our job is getting to know our guests. We are blessed that we have such wonderful guys who come to visit. The number of east coast visitors has increased tremendously. Sometimes we feel like we are on vacation with you. Such fun!!! Until next time, two big hugs. Ken and Tim and the boys!

My 5th time at the resort and over my 10 days I was reminded again how this haven caters to so many tastes. For those who seek quiet seclusion - its there - you can cocoon and no one will bother you; if you'd rather spend a lazy breakfast time meeting great guys from all over the world - have that third cup of freshly brewed coffee. There's always some spontaneous fun or folks who have just met heading off for an excursion. Innkeepers Ken and Tim curate a tailor-made experience for every guest. The staff are intuitive and quietly attentive. And did I mention the Spa - superb personal service.

Room Tip: Most rooms are pool side - with two pools you can't go wrong.

This is a great place to stay in Palm Springs to say for gay men. Always clothing optional, staff is attentive and friendly, and it is just a few blocks away from downtown. This is a more relaxed place not a CCBC or Warm Sands atmosphere, but a place to come and relax. It is against the law to discriminate, so once and awhile there might be a female staying there, but even then is relaxed.

Room Tip: We like the Roma rooms as they have a private back porch with a table and chairs. Order food in and eat out there.
