The ambience, staff and amenities were all outstanding!!! Only criticism is the soft beds, which may be part of the Moroccan experience. The entire environment was very conducive to relaxation. Would definitely return but possibly get the larger room.

This would be a lovely place to visit for a romantic get away or a photo shoot! The decor is very authentic. They have a mineral spring hot tub and pool. Both clean and wonderful. The spa services were very nice. I had the Moroccan Rain Massage which was exceptional.

Enjoyed time with friends here - almost no one else about, made it seem like our private hideaway. Swam at night under the stars - spectacular. Not sure I would enjoy if the place was crowded. It's not very big and you would hear all your neighbors, I'm sure. Service was delightful. Really a special place.

enjoyed the theme of this property. Cute and peaceful. Room is bit small for a couple but bed was ok. The outdoor hot tub was bigger than expected and thought it would be better if they tighten their curtains up to make it airy. The light setup at night was nice. barely watched Casa Blanca movie but it was only... More

This place is somebody's labor of love. You can tell from all the little extra touches, like the mint lemonade, rosewater and fully stocked toiletries, not to mention the detail in the decor. The pillowtop bed was so cozy (I hate hard beds), as were the poolside fires in the evening. The pool was comfortably lukewarm, even in the morning.... More

This exotic and peaceful Inn and Spa is located at the 'Hot Springs' area of Dessert Hot Springs. This area is endowed with natural hot mineral water springs. On our arrival, we were not sure that his was the right address, (as it is in the proximity of a residential area), until a manager greeted us at the door and... More

I love this place! This is a very unique B &B and my second time at this Oasis. We usually fly into Palm Springs to come back into this Oasis, and not to explore Palm Springs ironically. I plan to return many times more! What is special about this place is that before I enter a stay at the Morocco... More

Awesome awesome awesome! Not a corny Moroccan themed hotel. The owner & caretakers take pride in keeping everything as close to being in Morrocco as possible. Everything was so wonderful! The delicious breakfast, soothing perfect temperature pool & spa, massage, room amenities & decor was exactly what my husband and I needed to have a mini getaway from the kids.... More

Wow, what a magical place! I enjoyed my time at El Morocco Inn so much that I was looking into booking another stay on my flight back! The decor is very charming.

Forget corporate owned places like some in DHS. This is a keeper. Always great rooms, service and hot springs. We have been coming here for years and it only becomes better with time. It has been three years since our last visit and it was great to see some changes that only make this probably the best place to stay... More
