We fully enjoyed our weekend stay at La Dolce Vita! It was a pleasant surprise given the "risque" nature of many clothing-optional resorts. We found the facilities superb, the staff as friendly as can be and the clientele extremely friendly and fun. This resort dates back to the 40's and the management have made a conscientious decision to keep the...

Just spent the weekend at La Dolce Vita with my husband and what a great time we had. Our room was comfortable and clean. The pool was great in the 110 degree desert heat. The best part about the trip was the other guests. We met a wonderful group of men that I am certain we will remain friends with...

I have stayed at La Dolce Vita, several times. This is my favorite place to stay! I am a very spontaneous person, and am usually calling to make reservations at "La Dolce Vita," as I am on my way out to Palm Springs. On a Couple of occasions they have been completely booked and I have stayed at other places!...

I have never stayed at a gay resort before but after my stay here at La Dolce, I would not hesitate to come back here! I came here with a friend and we both loved it. Ty greeted us, checked us in and made us feel right at home. He was super awesome and one lazy afternoon even brought up...

I have stayed at La Dolce Vita a dozen or so times. It feels like a second home ...quiet, relaxing, and staff that will go out of their way to make you happy. The owners are great, and make you feel special. It's nice to have the relaxing, clothing-optional experience without the kind of "cruise-y" atmosphere at other men's resorts...

It's hard to believe that one might need a little R&R after seven days on a cruise. But once again my partner found La Dolce Vita the place to do it. It's like coming home to family. This is made possible by Tim and Ken who keep the place in first rate order with comfortable rooms, two pools, and plenty...

This is our second visit to La Dolce Vita and we were not disappointed. Tim and Ken treat you like family. The property is clean and inviting. Social hour and the continental breakfast is a great way to make new friends. Very accessible to downtown.

Thanks so much for taking the time to share your experience at La Dolce Vita. Now we know who messed up our waffle iron. (Only kidding). You have joined a club of about 30 people. Hopefully by the time your vacation was over, you were a chef of waffles. Come back soon! Hugs Ken and Tim and the Boys.
