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...

Fist time in Palm Springs with my partner. It was a great spa and resort.
Breakfast in the morning was exactly what was needed prior to going on hikes everyday. Great location as it was only a short 10 minute drive to the start of most hikes. After hiking it was nice to come back to the pool and some down time.
The staff were very friendly and nice. Thank you.

Thank you. Many folks don't realize that Palm Springs is an excellent location for hiking. There are over 82 trials in the San Jacinto wilderness and many more on Indian land. We're so glad you had your exercise and also some relaxation. See you next time! Big hugs, Ken and Tim and the boys!

Firstly an apology... we have had no internet for a few weeks .
My partner and I stayed at Dolce Vita for four days rom the 11th of May.
What a fantastic gem of a place !!!
The staff were beyond helpful, the amenities were great but most of all the atmosphere was incredible... so restful and peaceful , a true oasis in the desert.
I would absolutely recommend this place for a great place for a stay.

Room Tip: Any of the rooms are amazing , the swuare pool at the rear is quieter

Really friendly staff, good range of breakfast choices and a great social hour in the evenings to meet other guests. Spacious, clean rooms.
Good amount of sun beds around the pools, well spaced out so you do not feel like your on top of each other. Always able to find a quiet area to chill out in even though fully booked.
Close enough to walk to downtown shops, bars and restaurants.

My husband and I have stayed at La Dolce Vita at least once annually over the past eight years. What keeps bringing us back is the hospitality provided by Ken and his staff. The rooms are clean and spacious and open up onto one of the two pools. It is a clothing optional resort for gay men and we have never encountered any attitude from any of the other guests. The atmosphere is laid back and casual, not cruisy; it doesn't have the high sexual energy like some of the other men's resorts on Warm Sands. They have an evening hosted happy hour where you can enjoy a cocktail and get to know some of the other guests. Continental breakfast items are served in the mornings. They even have an onsite spa that offers a menu of services to pamper yourself or your man. La Dolce Vita will continue to be our go to gay mens resort when we need a Palm Springs getaway.
