My husband and I recently stayed at this resort in Palm Springs and we were thoroughly satisfied. The staff treats you like family and goes above and beyond to cater to your needs. The property is clean, well maintained, and comfortable. We will be staying here again and telling all our friends to visit.

My stay at La Dolce Vita a few weeks ago was super!! The staff were so friendly (just like family) and attentive to all needs from driving directions to extra towels - simply the best. The pool areas have gorgeous views of the mountains. My room was spacious and comfy! Loved my bed. Can't wait to go back and see... More

We've stayed at La Dolce Vita many times over the years, but I never think to post a review, even though we always leave there after a weekend knowing we will return!

La Dolce Vita is a diamond in paradise. The location was perfect, and the views from the property were unbelievable. Mountains everywhere, outlined by the palm trees and greenery on the resort. Two wonderful pools, two hot tubs, friendly and attentive staff, and clean, comfortable room accommodations. Ken and Tim were wonderful hosts. We were beyond impressed and will be... More

Shared a two bedroom suite with two friends. Wonderfully appointed, tenderly cared for by exceptional staff. Owners greeted me when I arrived. A nice week of relaxation, exercise, socialization and fun.

We have been staying with Ken and Tim for years as the property is very inviting and relaxed. One of the nicest features is that there are two pools.

Thank you for visiting us. We really do have a friendly crowd. Our buildings were built right after WWII. For our younger audience, that was a really big War. It was during Palm Springs' growth period when many of the Hollywood crowd decided to make the desert their playground. We have tried to retain that vibe, but, updating where necessary.... More
